Before I signed up for Megan's program, I was dealing with the death of my husband. Although I've experienced the deaths of loved ones in the past, this one was decidedly different for many reasons. With Megan's guidance and encouragement, I stepped off my carousel and went on a personal retreat. Conversations with Megan prior to and after my personal retreat provided a safe space for me to examine my feelings, question some of my thinking, and eventually allow the answers to come forth. What stood out to me most about this experience was Megan's coaching style. She is a skilled, gifted coach. She listens intently before offering kind, nonjudgmental, supportive feedback. I totally enjoyed the experience of working with Megan and highly recommend her to anyone considering a personal retreat

"Before I worked with Megan, I knew I wanted to plan a personal retreat as 'something nice to do for myself' and to work through some stress I was dealing with. Megan's coaching helped me get really clear about what was motivating me to take the trip so I could set goals for what I wanted to accomplish with it and so we could work together to select an ideal location and activities (quiet farm house, heck yes!) I really appreciate that Megan held me accountable to follow through on my retreat instead of letting it drift into an "oh, nevermind" place. I am also grateful for Megan's enthusiasm and positivity which encouraged me to do things I may have otherwise been uncomfortable doing (like climbing up a tower for a beautiful view)!"

Megan has such an expertise for adding more joy, adventure & travel in your life. Her encouragement to embrace out-of-the box adventures made my recent travels that much more exciting and fulfilling! And she helped me realize the value of taking much needed time away from my business and focus on the beneficial value of my time away. Megan - thanks for making my trip so memorable!".

When you purchase the program, you'll be given a detailed questionnaire to discover the best options for you, and the ones to avoid. Then when you schedule a coaching call with me, we'll dive even deeper into the best destinations and type of trips that will light you up. I have an extensive background in the travel industry and the coaching industry, creating this unique mix of know-how for finding the places you'll want, the activities you'd enjoy, and the clarity of soul yearnings that you need. I live for travel and finding the really unique, special experiences uniquely suited to your style and goals.
Absolutely. I'm a savvy researcher (plus world traveler and previous travel agent and event planner), so I keep my finger on the pulse of all kinds of tricks for finding the right destination and experiences for you, whether I've personally been to a place of not. As a nomad, chances are I have been near to where you are anyway.
Once you sign up for the program, you'll be given a detailed "perfect retreat for you" questionnaire to fill out. Once that's completed, we'll then schedule a pre-planning coaching call to ensure I'm clear on the best theme/location/activities/outcome are right for you. From there, I'll go away and return with a done-for-you retreat activity book and suggested travel itinerary. I do not make reservations, typically I hold you accountable for that part. But I am open to making reservations for a small extra fee. If all steps are completed promptly, you can have everything ready to go in less than two weeks.
These sessions are where we go deeper on the intention and clarity of your reboot time. We’ll create a tailored framework for how you can set yourself up for a successful, replenishing getaway. Plus we prepare you for mental roadblocks that may be keeping you stuck and frustrated. This is also where we dive into invisible habits and thoughts that may be sabotaging your ultimate self-healing.
Yes, the itinerary includes one destination, and an assortment of activity options to fill your retreat regardless of the length of your stay.
With this basic program, no. I make specific destination suggestions based on your unique travel style, and send you the booking site links with the best deals. This makes it easy for you to reserve from there, and keeps you accountable to taking the next step. If you'd prefer the compete done-for-you booking service, I can do this for an additional fee (varies depending on you type and length of trip). This could include everything from your from hotel or yurt, ferry reservation, massage appointment, restaurant booking, guided moonlight hike, etc..
Prior to itinerary planning, we'll discuss the places you might want to go, as well as the places that you don't want, so that I can find something that's just right for you. Providing you're open about this information, the destination pick should be a great fit, because it's based on what you share with me, and I put my skills to work in finding you the right match.
Anyone who is in need of the extra space to get away and collect their thoughts, reconnect with their soul's calling, and wants to do so in a structured format, yet on a solo, self-care mission.
I customize travel for all budget ranges. I know many savvy money-saving travel hacks and can factor this into the process, plus advise you on additional steps to help you get the best value for money while on your own.
