Is This Retreat For You?


Undoubtedly the last couple of years have left you feeling weary and major life changes may have occurred with the backdrop of a pandemic as your landscape.  We are wired to react, and when our core values are out of alignment with our actions, we experience cognitive dissonance, which can lead to a variety of unhealthy behaviors and sap us of our vitality and creativity. Our body, relationships, and lives come into balance when we align our core values with our actions.  As we embark on a new year, new challenges lay ahead and what matters most is not the problems themselves, but how we respond to them. It's time to pause, reflect, and for many of us, make some "course corrections." This retreat is dedicated to creating a space where you can recharge, reset and renew your energy and focus for the future.  Together, we will support you as you explore how you want to BE and FEEL, take an honest personal inventory of what is not working in your life, and create an action plan to manifest your potential.  By taking these steps, you will experience an energetic shift so that you won't just survive, you will thrive. There's never been a better time to push your personal reset button.  Join us at the five-star luxury Ritz-Carlton, Bacara Resort to create a New You.

Jackie Miller

Jackie Miller is passionate about helping people through the painful process of divorce. Trained as a CDC® Certified Divorce Coach, Divorce Transition and Recovery Coach as well as a High Conflict Divorce Coach, she is constantly amazed by the courage and resiliency of her clients. Jackie is also creator and host of the podcast: Out of Crazytown: Your Guide to Divorcing a Narcissist. When engaging in a high conflict divorce or custody battle, so much focus is spent on the negative, and can cause one to ruminate about the past and fear the future. After her own two-year battle in a high conflict divorce, Jackie knew she had to help others on this difficult journey. Jackie helps her clients be more organized, informed and empowered and is especially passionate about keeping her clients focused on the future and visualizing a positive outcome. Jackie is excited to bring her practices of visualization to this retreat setting, helping to release stress and create space for positive energy so guests can design a future full of hope, love and prosperity.

Ann Grant

Ann Grant is an author, entrepreneur, professor, attorney, mother, grandmother and survivor. After experiencing a perfect storm of loss—divorce from her litigator spouse, death of her father and demise of the multinational law firm where Ann was a partner—she discovered how to not just survive, but thrive. In her bestselling book, The Divorce Hacker’s Guide to Untying the Knot: What Every Woman Needs to Know about Finances, Child Custody, Lawyers, and Planning Ahead, Ann provides the blueprint to push the reset button and create a new and even better life—proactively, efficiently, resiliently.  In her Manhattan Beach legal practice, Ann empowers her clients to overcome seemingly insurmountable challenges—just as she did—so that they can experience a life of meaning and purpose.
