See the group of women on the suitcase?

Yep just there, a few of them, together, about to leave the retreat they have been on that has created lifelong memories and brand new friendships.

Because that is what retreats do - they change lives in an instant, spin you around to exactly where you should be and connect you with people that you need to meet.

You, you do this.

And you do it with such simplicity and grace that it blows people away, so much that they want more of your retreats and you,

You are the dream chasers and inspired believers.

You are the ones already running retreats and want to step them up a notch, or you are wanting to add them into what you offer.

 

Retreats are journeys that can take you around the globe (or close to home or even online), and have you sharing your message with clients and, just maybe, have you rubbing shoulders with a celebrity or two.

They are big huge adventures that take time to manifest and grow, but when developed well they will have you glowing with pride of what you have achieved. Here at The Retreat Specialists we work with over 26 years of experience and we want your retreats to fill with ease and grace - and of course, make you a ton of money for your hard work.

Keep reading to find out what we do, and why our years of experience can help you live the retreat life of your dreams........

RETREATS CHANGE LIVES - THEY JUST DO

Who is Liesel Albrecht?

20729746_10156586987507846_7616200924564
The Retreat Specialists (7).png

I AM NOT JUST A  POP UP  I HAVE RUN OVER 300 RETREATS AND MENTORED 100'S MORE TO RUN THEIR OWN IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCES.

 

I love my life, and like many of you, the path to get here has not always been paved with gold.  There was a time I didn't know how I was going to feed my kids and keep the bills paid, but this has just made me stronger. Through all of this, my belief in me was strong and I knew there was light at the end of a sometimes dark tunnel.

 

My story is similar to others out there - a sad marriage, dodgy relationships, a tsunami (ok not so typical), and an almost tragic accident showed me that life was too short to be trapped, that I had to make the decision to find who I was again. This meant 4 aha moments and a life-changing journey or two - Vietnam Rainbows, The Grand Canal, Istanbul, and The Trevi Fountain. Moments and places that changed my life. It started when I watched Eat, Pray, Love which lead to a solitary adventure with my two sons in Asia for three months, many said I was brave or crazy, but while I was there I found me again. 

 

Which was when my life changed. 

I remembered the girl that was inside of me, the girl who was full of love, wonder and yearning, and the one whose goals included travel. I started the journey to the new me - I had a new inner peace, found the love of a man (when I wasn't even looking) who loved me without conditions, and I could finally be the mother I knew I was. 

 

I knew I was whole. I knew I was at peace. It was then that I could make a decision to take a leap of faith, one that had me leaving the only career I had ever known because I wanted others to see the beauty within them, to travel the path that made them feel whole and connected and at peace. 

 

So a yearning to run retreats on a bigger scale and show others how to as well was born - my 26-plus years of experience in running summits, conferences and leadership retreats mixed with my passion for travel and taking others away on amazing holidays evolved into The Retreat Specialists. 

 

I love that I get to do the thing I am meant to be here to do. Through Retreats, I get to support women to walk the path of their destiny. To step them from the ordinary to the extraordinary where, just for a moment, they get to totally reconnect with who they are and who they want to be, and once that connection is made the ripple effects are long-lasting. I am a woman of conviction, passion, and knowledge. I am Liesel Albrecht - The Retreat Specialist and this was who I was born to be.

BUILD A SUCCESSFUL RETREAT FROM THE WORD GO

Retreats

Once you decide to run a retreat there is a lot to be done - deciding why you want to run it, how your story fits into your retreat, where you want to go, what you are offering, the budget, the perfect copy to speak to your ideal client, and not to mention the marketing.

 

The marketing (I can hear that groan from here) - for some this is the most stressful part because they don't know where to start, and for others the easiest as they have laid the groundwork in their business. When you lay this in the right way your retreats will fill with less stress and much more ease and grace.

We also cover areas like how to deal with difficult guests, legalities and emergencies and keeping your sanity when on location.

 

Like we said so much to think about...but when you know the right formula it is as easy as 1...2...3......

We have been there, done it, survived, learned from our mistakes - and made some money for our hard work. We know the hacks and the tricks to fill your retreat easily and with much less stress and overwhelm.

 

Most of all we understand retreats. When you message us in a cold sweat because of some retreat disaster we can guide you through the porcess.

 

We understand how they should be run and what is needed to make them a success.

There are so many amazing coaches and businesses out there so look around but make sure you ask them what retreats they have run if that is what you are wanting support with. With us, you don't need to ask those questions about what we do well as we have a proven track record of supporting people to turn their thoughts into reality.

 

If you downloaded the free retreat checklist you can see we can support you in every aspect of your organising, planning and when you come home - marketing, copy, website, logistics, itineraries and so much more.

Think of us as a one-stop-shop for retreats.
