Backpacking Retreat

Join me for a life-changing experience in the wilderness. This 4-day backpacking trip will have a lasting impact on you. Together we will take on the mission of connecting to the land, connecting to each other and connecting to self. The experience combines the challenges of backpacking, deep introspection, and the support of an amazing group of women. Together we will create a community that will seriously change the way you look at yourself and your life. You will walk away with a better understanding of yourself and understanding of the natural world.


Who: anyone who is so busy with modern life that they feel a little disconnected from their spirit and has the bravery to step into that internal wilderness with a caring group of women as support. Anyone who wants to connect deeper to themselves by connecting to the mountains and one another.


“This trip is for anyone with a deeper inquisition within them, a desire to allow what’s truly important in life to rise to the surface and society’s busyness to fall into the background. Deep truths will become apparent to you if you go on this trip.”


“I would highly recommend this backpacking trip for individuals who are open-minded, adventurous, and eager to embrace personal growth. Liz's well-curated experience is designed for those who appreciate both the challenges of the wilderness and the introspective activities that encourage self-discovery. If you enjoy exploring both nature and the depths of your own thoughts, this trip is tailor-made for you.”


Experience: NO experience needed, just a baseline level of good fitness and the willingness to challenge yourself
