Reinvention Retreat

Real connection, shared knowledge, and creative curiosity.

Reinvention: the action or process through which something is changed so much that it appears to be entirely new.

29th April to 6th May, Nevis, West Indies

A week-long facilitated retreat for anyone seeking "something even better". What would personal reinvention look like for you?

A compelling learning experience, interactive activities, small group discussions, and one-on-one conversations and coaching.

The venue

The Hermitage is a small, boutique inn on the island of Nevis, West Indies, owned and operated by the Lupinacci family since 1970. Described by The New York Times as “the nearest thing to Eden …” in a tranquil, historic, and charm-filled setting, The Hermitage celebrates West Indian culture and tradition and is renowned for its restaurant which offers a fine-dining experience celebrating a Caribbean-infused menu.

The best flight options are flying into St Kitts (SKB) and Hermitage will arrange a taxi to greet you at the airport and take you to Reggae Beach for the 5 min water taxi ride to Nevis. Another taxi will be waiting to whisk you to the Hermitage. Once you have your flights, send us your itinerary.

The Program

Compelling facilitation designed to enable folks to wrestle with topics of relevance to them in new and nuanced ways and incorporate diverse voices and perspectives into the conversation. We'll work together, in smaller groups, and one-on-one. Expect to emerge feeling supported and connected, sharing common language, and having crafted mini-actions. We'll reconnect virtually after the retreat to explore challenges and celebrate outcomes.

We all have enormous gifts and potential that lie dormant until activated. We often doubt and wonder who we are to step forward. We may hide who we really are or play small. Together, let's explore something even better.

Experienced facilitators inspired and/or trained by Brené Brown, Amy Edmundson, Nadya Zhexembayeva, Martha Beck, and David Emerald, senior facilitators and presenters will facilitate learning experiences, integration and practice.

Feedback

Fabulous experience! Chris is an awesome facilitator and designed high levels of engagement and interaction. It was so helpful to exchange and practice the models that we learned. We had plenty of time to dig in. -- Monica K.

I loved having the ability to connect on a personal level. Our shared vulnerability made the constructive feedback and diverse viewpoints so much richer. Chris set expectations but was so kind and curious. -- Maria D.

Great content, great energy, great opportunities to connect in small groups. Got to mix with different people, which was so powerful! At the same time, I so appreciated the time and space to disconnect, to reflect, and drill down. -- Erin D.
