For the seekers. The (big) dreamers. The rebels-with-a-cause.
Imagine spending four days doing all the things that make you feel naturally happy, inspired + free, in the company of some of the most dynamic + wildhearted people on the planet…
I see you, and I know you.
You’re brave. You’re bold. And you’ve done a helluva lot to get where you are in life.
You can’t help it: You’re just the kinda girl who’s got adventure coursing through your veins (even if your last 10 only took place in your mind) and everything you do, you do on your own terms.
You’re on a constant mission to become the most amazing person you can.
Your spirit’s been craving something fresh. Something a little rebellious.
You’re ready to grow, to soar, and release some of that stuff that you know has been holding you back.
You’re wanting to relax, rejuvenate, and kick some ass.
But you keep putting it off, saying “someday” – after this bill or that event or whatever-the-hell – you’ll strike out + do that “thing.”
But the truth is?
Someday never actually comes unless you make it a priority.
Who says you have to keep waiting to live the way you wanna live?
Who says you have to hold off on celebrating life, going on an epic adventure or just taking a break?
Who says you’ve gotta hide or stifle your wild side…even one more day?
If you want a new, rich experience (and I know you totally do), sometimes you gotta say SCREW IT and just go for it.
Sometimes we need to disconnect to reconnect.
Sometimes we’ve got to turn it all off…to truly wake up.
So if that whisper from your inner wildheart that you need something new has turned into a not-so-gentle nudge…you’re in the right place.
February 26 – March 1, 2015. 4 days + 3 nights of unplugged freedom + adventure + soul exploring transformation at a gorgeous California Lodge for
10 5 peacefully rebellious ladies.
The first Wildheart Winter Wonderland Retreat is a 4 day, 3-night off-the-charts awesome adventure that’s unlike anything you’ve ever experienced.
From Thursday to Sunday, you’ll be hanging in the heart of Yosemite’s South Gate, at a majestic Sierra Lodge (that was just voted one of the country’s best spas), with an inspiring + intimate group of courageous, wildhearted women (your soon-to-be best friends), enjoying a hot lineup of fun, unlike-anything-else activities, guest speakers + special Wildheart workshops.
It’s a no-holds-barred getaway for your spirit + a once-in-a-lifetime chance to take a huge leap outside the norm + into the embrace of a posse of kindred sisters.
And it’s the one place where you don’t have to change who you are to fit in, because whoever you are…is exactly who we want you to be.
Come join us as we explore the endless possibilities out there in the heart of the Sierra wilderness….and within ourselves in this custom retreat that is meant to help you reflect on what you’ve been holding onto that isn’t working for you, and let it go so you can kickstart your spring with a Wildhearted pep in your step.
Horse-Drawn Sleigh Ride – Glide through the Yosemite winter wonderland of towering Sugar Pines and Incense Cedars on this Tenaya Lodge winter exclusive. We will experience an authentic horse drawn sleigh ride pulled by Belgian Draft Horses, complete with jingle bells. As steel runners glide over fresh snow, we will be whisked along historic Jackson Road to Skidders Camp, where a warm fire will greet us, along with marshmallows to toast, hot apple cider and the enticing aroma of “cowboy coffee.”
Snowshoe Adventure and Treasure Hunt – Not your mama’s snowshoe trip. Ever wanted to know what it would be like to walk on top of deep snow, traipsing through the sierra forest while engaging in a LIVE workshop and treasure hunt? Well wonder no more. This short snowshoe trip will be wild, fun, and deeply inspiring.
Archery – It wouldn’t be a Wildheart event without a bit of wild west, Robin Hood type adventures. Join us for an archery lesson and target practice right in your own soon-to-be-backyard (weather permitting), as long as it’s not actively snowing. Which would be romantic, but terrible for archery lessons. Can I get a HELL YES?
Ice Skating – If your twinkle toes have been jonesing for a little double axel action, wait no more. There is a 40 x 80 ice skating rink right on the resort premises. Glide over the ice while surrounded by the beautiful Sierra National Forest (I mean…c’mon!) Don’t know how to skate? Haven’t done it since your mom had to take you to school? No problem. For anyone not super comfy on skates, there are little walkers we can use to help us keep our balance.
Arcade + Game Room – Pinball wizards and dedicated gamers take note: Tenaya Lodge’s arcade offers video games, pinball machines, a pool table, and air hockey. It’s available for use between 8am- 10pm everyday. So if your Wildheart soul needs to play, you know where to go!
The first Wildheart Winder Wonderland adventure is taking place at The Tenaya Lodge at the South Gate of Yosemite National Park.
This premier Northern California resort is a stunning mountain destination right next door to Yosemite National Park in the Sierra National Forest. The lodge includes a rich range of recreational activities and awe-inspiring natural beautiful at every turn. Located just two miles from the Yosemite’s south entrance, the resort offers the cozy feel of a mountain retreat, but features a full range of world-class amenities. It’s like roughing it…minus the rough part :)
Spa Treatments – Get all relaxed and rejuvenated in the lodge’s spa with your all inclusive 1/2 hour spa treatment. Muscles feeling a bit sore from the yoga? Wanting your beautiful face to shine even brighter? No problem! Included in your ticket price is a spa treatment of a massage or facial (your choice!).
Sauna + Steam Room – Want to let off some steam? Want to get your sweat on? There will be plenty of downtime to enjoy the sauna and steam room available to you in the lodge.
Every Wildheart deserves a little pampering – that’s why we’ve hooked you up with some of the sweetest accommodations in the wild west, and we do mean SWEET. Tenaya Lodge was just voted by USA Today as one of the World’s 12 Best Wellness Resorts.
Your home-away-from-home is a luxury cottage that is the perfect combination of peaceful alpine retreat and full service resort. Equipped with amazing amenities such as a private balcony, patio + outdoor seating area, fireplace, flatscreen tv, + modern appliances. And of course, stunning views right out your window. (Rooms will be shared with your Wildhearted sisters.)
And best of all? The whole place is decked out in crazy-cool, Wildheart-approved mountain chic furnishings. Naturally.
As if the lodge couldn’t get any better…it then does!! In addition to what was mentioned above, The Tenaya Lodge also includes two swimming pools (one indoor and one outdoor), a hot-tub, a full spa, a fitness center, a full-bar (alcohol not included in ticket price), retail stores, babysitting, and pet-sitting. Wooo weeee. Can I get a HELL YEAH?
The #livewildheart adventure is all-inclusive, and we’ll keep our wildhearts well fed with delicious, locally sourced meals. That means every delicious meal – that’s one breakfast, lunch + dinner each day from Thursday ‘til Sunday – is included in your retreat fee. Vegetarian, gluten-free or have other special dietary needs? Totally cool – we’ll handle it.
We will be holding yoga + meditation sessions to help keep your body, mind + spirit flexible + feelin’ free.
This weekend is custom designed to help you reflect on what you’ve been holding onto that isn’t working for you, and release it, so you can kickstart your spring with a Wildhearted pep in your step.
Learn how to identify and let go of what’s holding you back in Sally Hope’s World Premiere Workshop: The L.O.V.E. Technique. Where she will teach you how to get rid of the emotions that are preventing you from having and being exactly what you want in life. Plus she will teach us how to lock it all in with mantras, mudras, and body postures.
Learn how to spot what is holding you back in your business or career, and get the tools to move forward in this super fun workshop from from resident Wildheart Biz Coach + Money-Making Expert, Ellen Ercolini.
Wanna know what’s in the cards for you (literally)? Wildheart’s resident tarot princess + love/relationships guru Natalie Vartanian will be on hand to work her special blend of magic.
You’ll have plenty of down time to get to know your fellow WIldhearts (including cozy, down-to-earth conversation + s’mores by the fire). You might even walk away with a new Wildhearted BFF.
This off-the-grid adventure will rock your world if…
I thought so. :) You can pay all at once or in four easy payments. Click on the link below to choose your best option.
Just as a reminder, your payment includes it all: 4 days, 3 nights at The Tenaya Lodge, all meals, transportation to + from the retreat (via the Fresno airport) unless you decide to drive yourself and all the activities listed above (except the arcade games which you can partake in at your leisure).
Immediately after payment, you’ll receive a wildhearted Welcome email + follow-up emails with detailed instructions on planning your trip to the Tenaya Lodge, including must-know 411 about what to expect before, during + after this epic retreat.
The Wildheart LIVE retreat is the only one of its kind, and it won’t roll around again for another YEAR.
If you’re on the fence, I totally get it. Doing something new can be way scary – but the truth is everything you could ever possibly desire lies juuuuust outside your comfort zone. You just have to be willing to make that first step and take a risk!
But if your spirit lit up reading this page + if you feel at all called to participate in this unique experience, I’d love for you to join us for this game-changing, hella fun adventure before it’s too late. Just click the appropriate payment option above + you’re in!
Sally Hope is a motorcycle riding renegade life coach, hot-pink lipstick lover, modern spiritual outlaw + leader of the Wildheart Revolution who thinks everybody should be able to live life on their own terms.
A former rock star-turned-entrepreneur whose wildhearted accomplishments include traveling around the country in an RV + uprooting her life to move to Costa Rica on a whim, Sally now lives in Montana and teaches other dynamic women ‘round the globe how to carpe the hell out of their own diems.
Sally’s latest brainchild, the Wildheart Revolution, is a one-of-a-kind online coaching experience that helps dynamic, unconventional women show up in the world exactly how they were meant to.
Wait a second…so what exactly will we be doing?
A lot (or a little – your choice!) To see the day-by-day breakdown of activities, meals + more, please click here for the full schedule of events.
What if I don’t want to do all the activities? Is that ok?
Absolutely…just like Wildheart…this retreat is tailored to your needs. If there is something you don’t want to do, you certainly do not have to. Pick and choose the ones that seem fun and leave the rest. Although I would encourage you step out of your comfort zone and try new things.
What if I’m scared/don’t want to do archery?
That is totally OK. None of the activities are required. But do know that each activity we will be doing, there will be trained professionals to teach us how to do everything.
Can I get a refund if I change my mind?
Due to very limited space and planning purposes, once you opt in, payment is non-refundable. However, if something comes up for you, you will be able to transfer your ticket to someone else of your choosing ( must be 18 years or older).
Will there be any surprise fees I’m not aware of?
Nope! Everything is all inclusive. However, if you decide to purchase alcohol at the bar, buy anything in the retail stores, order room service to your room, or purchase anything that is outside of what is mentioned above, you will be responsible for the payments.
Alcohol is not included.
Is airfare included in the price?
Airfare is not included in the price. But if you book early there are some really great prices on flights!
What is the age range of people that are coming? I don’t want to feel too young/too old.
This retreat is for ANYONE who wants to be around like-minded people, while doing really fun activities and feeding both your wild side and your spiritual side. Wildhearts are ALL different ages. We are not age exclusive. I can’t say for sure who will be at the retreat until registration closes, but I know that within the private Wildheart community ages range from 22-65. You will be in great company no matter how old you are.
Will I be able to get work done while I’m there?
The lodge is equipped with full WIFI, so yes, if you choose to do some work that is available to you. However, I’d strongly encourage you to unplug for a bit and really immerse yourself in the experience.
What’s the deal with travel? What airport do I fly into etc?
You will be flying into the Fresno International Airport. We will have shuttles that will take you to and from the airport. All you need to do is fly in on Thursday the 26th (check in at the ranch is at 4pm but if you need an earlier flight that’s cool, we’ll work it out) and fly out on Sunday March 1 (check out is at 11am but lunch will be provided at noon).
We will provide shuttles to those of you who are flying in and those of you who are driving and would prefer not to drive up the mountain.
Also…road trips are super fun! If you don’t want to fly, perhaps you can grab a Wildheart or two and head on out to the lodge together. Make a fun experience out of the traveling!
If you do decide to drive make sure you bring chains for your tires as it will be snowy! Or let us know and we’ll shuttle you up the mountain.
Can I bring my dog?
I LOVE four legged friends, but no. We want you to be as distration free as possible :)
What if I’m an introvert…will I feel weird at the retreat?
No worries. I’m an introvert too. There will be lots of planned activities but also time for you to do your own thing and recharge if you need to. Also, you get to make this experience whatever you want. If you’d rather go for a solo walk while everyone else is hanging out, that’s totally cool. I respect whatever everyone needs to do to make this experience amazing.
How do the payments work?
Basically you’re free to either pay the ticket all up front or you can pay it in installments. All payments must be completed before the retreat. If you decide to pay in installments and discontinue your payments or don’t pay them for whatever reason, the “deposited” amount you’ve already paid for will not be refunded.
How will I know if I’ll have a good time?
Well…technically no one can predict the future. :) However, if you feel that little itch inside you, or that voice telling you you need to be there, I would listen to it. That voice has never steered me wrong.
I can also say that this experience will be amazing. I was a participant at a retreat very similar to this and it changed my life. It challenged me to get out of my comfort zone by meeting new people (I didn’t know ANYONE when I went), trying new activities, and making the experience my own.
I came away with new friends, a new outlook on life, and it was the impetus for me making some major changes in my life. If you’re open for new experiences, I am pretty certain that something will shift for you while you’re there.
I’m not super into yoga…do I have to do it?
Nope! You are not required to do any activity you don’t want to do.
I don’t really like being cold…am I gonna freeze my tail off?
Temperatures in February at the Tenaya lodge range from 38 to about 60 degrees. So if you bring a jacket and a hat you should be just fine! Plus there will be lots of options for cozy campfires and indoor pampering type activities if you’re not feeling the outside stuff so much.
But I would encourage you to give it all a go. We won’t do anything that’ll make your fingers numb.
Where can I find out more information about where we’ll be staying?
