“Embrace your Dragon – International Women’s Weekend Retreat”

November 16 - 18, 2018

Co-leaders: Sofia Burau, Juliane Dietz & Pam Kowalski

Who are you, and what are you looking for?

You are an internationally-minded, English-speaking, successful woman who has reached a comfortable place in your life, and yet you still feel something is missing. You know you are the one responsible for shaping your world, and you want to further empower yourself to find your own answers. You want to explore the link between mind, body, emotions and spirit as the sources of wisdom and energy that could drive you forward in the next steps in your life.

You are fierce and courageous warrior, ready to face whatever is holding you back. The possibilities are endless, and you are looking for more clarity in where your next move might be, in an authentic, powerful and grounded way.

As an open-minded woman, you know different perspectives can help you see yourself in a new light. You want to take time out for yourself to explore and recharge, and to experience bold self-discovery. You also want to have fun and feel the ease and power of connection with other women.


What will you get?

In this 2.5 day retreat, you are invited to:

  • discover and activate your own inner resources

  • experience the powerful connection between body, mind and spirit

  • learn to be more resilient and effective in your every day life, through practical methods and exercises

  • answer your personal, fundamental questions about life and career through exchanges with other like-minded women

  • face your limiting beliefs and overcome barriers to being at the very top of your game

  • gain more clarity about your next steps

  • recharge your energy through deliciously healthy food, yoga and outdoor movement in relaxing and inspiring surroundings

Befriend and “embrace your dragon”, to live in harmony with every part of yourself, and to step into your full power.



Here’s what a few past participants say:

“Such an inspiring weekend – every woman should have such an experience.” – Andrea

“Amazing, rich, meaningful… I would have liked to continue for a week.” – Valentina Bedoya


“It was an incredible experience.  I came as a stranger and I left with a community. The connection to the women within our circle was intense. This intense exchange with the other women has nourished me. It is like it has filled a place in my body/heart where there was a vacuum. Since I left the workshop I feel connected to myself and to the other. It has been 1 week since the workshop and this feeling is still there. Thank you!“ – Chadia Ghelab

"What I feel: Strong, aware, empowered, in touch with and embracing my dragon and knowing what I am destined to do. Love for all these fabulous women and FIERCE love for you trainers!" – Kathie Starks
