I have been working on my plans for 2016 and am updating my Passion. Purpose. Plunge retreats so I wanted to share those details with you here.
But, first, you might be wondering what these retreats are…
Before booking a personal retreat with Rosie, I was noticing a growing feeling of powerlessness in my work life – especially around deciding what freelance gigs to pursue and accept. To borrow Howard Thurman’s phrase, it was as if I was “spending my days on the ends of strings that somebody else pulls.” What I wanted was to define for myself what kind of work was worthy of my time, energy, and calling and learn to make more trustworthy decisions. While I had been seeing a therapist to tackle my spiritual roadblocks, I needed a fresh approach to tackling my professional ones.
From our first conversation over the phone, Rosie began helping me get unstuck. She listened well. She asked great questions. She mirrored back what she was hearing. Everything about her approach was tailored exactly for me. Even the homework assignments before meeting for our in-person retreat were helpful in and of themselves to discern. Once we were together in person we quickly moved from talking into doing. The most helpful thing we did together was a commitment assessment, walking through every work project on my plate and talking about whether it was something I needed to complete, adapt, or get out of. About a particularly lackluster commitment I had already made, I said, “Although I’m not excited about it, it’s important for me to keep my word.” Rosie looked at me plainly and said, “So, you can keep your commitment to the client or keep your commitment to the values you’ve articulated here.” She gave me permission to act on what my gut had been telling me for a long time.
After the retreat, I felt my personal voice and agency returning in my work life. I updated my website to set clearer expectations for potential clients. I began saying yes and no with more confidence. I even got out of a few of my prior commitments with integrity, thanks to Rosie’s help in wording my change of course. When we had our follow-up phone call one month later, I was astonished to see that we had addressed every concern I brought to the table at the beginning.
Rosie is clearly doing what she was born to do and giving every one in her life the courage to do the same. I’m telling all my friends – pastors, nurses, artists, and anyone who will listen – that it was the best professional development dollars I’ve ever spent.
What is a Passion. Purpose. Plunge Retreat?
An individualized, one-on-one retreat designed and facilitated by me with your greatest needs, wants, and dreams in mind.
Together, during a pre-retreat Vision Session, we’ll identify what it is you most need to live with passion, purpose, and deep self-acceptance so that you can create an incredibly satisfying life that allows you to authentically be yourself. Then, I’ll personally design a retreat for you that allows you to creatively and thoughtfully move through your fears and challenges, provides you with the physical and emotional space to see what’s possible and get excited about it, and the create an action plan that allows you to step into the life you are meant to be living.
During the retreat, we spend three to six hours in thoughtful, deep, guided conversation that illuminates what you are after and how to get there and then we create a thoughtful action plan that will get you there. Finally, about a month after your retreat, we reconnect in a post-retreat Shine session where we reflect on how things are going and tweak anything that needs adjusting. Throughout this process, I am just an email away for any problem solving, processing, or celebrating.
Rosie brings the perfect balance of encouragement and practical wisdom to her retreats. When I was struggling with my professional future, I scheduled a Passion. Purpose. Plunge. retreat because I wanted a thought partner in thinking through my next steps. Rosie helped me tremendously in planning for my transition in a holistic way, and I walked away with a much clearer vision of what I wanted for my life and how I was going to achieve it. I have been singing her praises to friends and colleagues ever since.
Is a Passion. Purpose. Plunge Retreat right for you?
Are you ready to move past your fear and inertia to really create the life you want?
Do you need space and support to really help you breathe, think, dream, and plan for your best life?
Do you want to feel invigorated, encouraged, inspired, focused, clear, committed, and authentic?
Does having someone in your corner raise your sense of accountability and possibility while bringing out your best?
Are you ready to realize what you have been hoping for?
…then a Passion. Purpose. Plunge retreat may just be the thing for you.
We’ll spend our time together really filtering out the excess noise and identifying and embracing what is most true for you in how to live authentically and create the life you want. You will claim what you want your legacy to be and understand how to live in a way that aligns with who and how you most want to be. We will examine your self-care and help you more deliberately embrace self-acceptance so that you are your best ally and not your biggest foe. You will articulate your wants and needs and then create an action plan that claims your vision and allows you to create it at a pace that is right for you. Ultimately, you will leave your retreat with a sense of confidence in what you uniquely offer the world, the ability to articulate it, and a vision for how to live on purpose. You will feel invigorated, optimistic, and focused and have a clear action plan on how to move forward in an authentic, whole-hearted way.
If I could describe my PPP retreat experience in one word, it would be REJUVENATING. Rosie has a great mix of wonderful, whimsical enthusiasm and specific, organized planning. These came together to create a plan for my upcoming year that excites me and challenges me. It’s no longer a clump of vague ideas wrestling with each other, but a set plan that purposefully moves me forward and offers many opportunities for growth and new experiences. It was great to talk about my desires and hopes and have someone listen and forge them into something attainable, someone to remind me that a lot is in my hands – for one, how I face and treat each day. Having Rosie as a mentor is refreshing and life-giving. From the food provided to the exercises of discernment and planning we did, I felt taken care of and listened to. It was great to be able to step back from my assumptions of what society thinks I should do with my life and think about what I actually want to do. No matter where you are or what you’re looking for in life, Rosie will provide a safe space and affirming ways to go forward. You won’t regret a PPP retreat.
There are three options for a Passion. Purpose. Plunge retreat.
The Peace experience is a 90 minute one-on-one session done over Skype (this is a contained session and does not include the one hour pre-planning phone call) where we’ll examine a smaller question or issue and apply some creative problem solving to it so that you come away with powerful solution for your situation and an action plan to guide you forward. The Peace experience can work for a personal or professional question and is ideal for a small challenge— you are launching a new project and want to fine-tune or trouble shoot it, you are working on your self-care and want help writing a wellness prescription and putting it into practice, you want to work through a specific issue at work.
The Passion experience is a 5 hour one-on-one retreat experience that can be offered in person if you are local to Charlotte, NC or over Skype if you are not. The Passion retreat consists of a pre-retreat vision reflection exercise, a one hour pre-retreat phone/Skype session, a three hour one-on-one retreat done in-person or over Skype that includes creating an action plan to guide your post-retreat plans, a one hour post-retreat phone/Skype session, and email support during the period contracted.
The Purpose experience consists of an 8 hour experience: a pre-retreat vision reflection exercise, a one hour pre-retreat phone/Skype vision session, a six hour in-person retreat that includes creating an action plan to guide your post-retreat plans, a one hour post-retreat phone/Skype session, and email support during the period contracted.
Signing up for a Passion. Purpose. Plunge. retreat is one of the best decisions I’ve made all year. Rosie created a thorough and thoughtful program that helped me identify personal and professional goals and develop a comprehensive plan for achieving them. During the retreat, Rosie created opportunities that stretched my beliefs about what is possible, allowing me to dream big — and she provided the support to help me reach the goals we set together. I left the retreat feeling invigorated and inspired. Less than 48 hours after the Passion. Purpose. Plunge retreat, I’d introduced a new program and got immediate results. I’ll be signing up for another retreat very soon!

If you are eager to create the life of your imagining, it would be my great honor to partner with you in realizing the possibilities.
I did an in-person Passion. Purpose. Plunge retreat with Rosie because I’d attended several of her VisionSPARK events and the outcome was always more than a good feeling. Time spent with Rosie is warm and supportive, but it’s also PRODUCTIVE. I knew I would leave my retreat with a clear action plan, timeline, and clearly articulated goals, not to mention fresh motivation to accomplish them. Rosie quickly and precisely narrows down what someone needs to be successful in personal or professional endeavors and then draws a map for how to get there. A retreat with Rosie was an investment in my success and happiness with immediate and measurable results.
