New Year Reset Retreat

New Year Reset Retreat

Regular price $129.00 Sale

Let's kick off 2023 with focus and intention.

January is a great time to reflect on the past year and reset for the new one ahead. Spend time reflecting on 2022, embracing lessons learned, and releasing the things that are no longer serving you. Then turn toward a new year of hope and possibility by getting clear on your intentions, learning about healthy ways you can care for yourself, and making practical, doable goals for your life. You'll leave relaxed, refreshed, and with renewed vision for 2023. Let's make 2023 the year that we care for ourselves!

The New Year Reset Retreat will take place Saturday, January 7 from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm at The Perch in Aurora, IL. You'll get:

  • Practical teaching from Amy Jackson, director of The Perch
  • Numerous activities to help you reflect on 2022 and set intentions for 2023
  • Focused time for setting your intentions for the year
  • A peaceful, refreshing environment that invites reflection
  • A workbook with activities, journaling prompts, and more
  • A supportive environment where you can connect with like-minded people
  • Beverages, snacks, and a box lunch (we're happy to honor your dietary needs!)
  • The opportunity to meet one-on-one with Amy Jackson when you add on a Soul Care Session
