September 26 to 29, 2019 at SunMountain Center, Colorado

Retreat Leader: Erin Berry

There is an “IT” factor unlike any other that has nothing to do with your outer beauty… and everything to do with being lit up from within. Reconnecting with your inner radiance exhilarates all aspects of your life, including your relationship with yourself and others.

You’re invited to fall deeply back in love with you and radically expand your inner light. For 4 days and 3 nights, you’ll immerse yourself in movement, meditation and soul-connection activities. You’ll have permission to BE Present – and Radically Radiant – in a remarkable place that allows you the freedom and space to deeply come home to you.

This retreat helps you reconnect with you and remember who you are at your most “soul-ular” level so you can shine your light of divine inner truth. When you are lit up, life just flows, and your inner glow is a magnet for beautiful, authentic relationships – inside and out.

It’s time to re-awaken the magical “IT” factor within you!
