I am so excited to announce that we are opening up the final few spots for our much anticipated Flourish Retreat + Book Launch Party in Granada, Nicaragua.

This new body of work, The Flourish Formula, was created froma deep desire to assist women who want to slow down yet accomplish/live/savor more.

Built out of more than a decade of professional, academic,and deep personal exploration it provides an elegant scaffolding or curriculum for enduring growth.

I also know that stretching into a new experience can stir our fears and bring up many questions.

So I am holding a live Q&A call where I will share many more details about the Flourish Retreat. I will be addressing questions from the practical to the profound such as…

  • Where do I fly to?
  • How do I get from the airport to the boutique hotel/retreat house?
  • What is the plan for the food?
  • I have not traveled internationally much by myself. Is it safe?
  • I am coming by myself. Will there be groups of people getting together for dinner and other outings?
  • Can I bring a friend?
  • What kind of things should I bring? (I am awriter/artist/photographer. Can I bring supplies?)
  • I’m totally into it but I am not sure I have the time or can afford it…
  • How do I talk about the Flourish retreat with my spouse/partner?
  • My spouse/partner/family doesn’t understand why this is important (or are nervous about me travelling) how do I explain this?
  • How do I know, really KNOW that the Flourish Retreat is right for me at THIS time

And because pictures are more powerful than words I also share some retreat pics below to give you the feel for this kind of gathering. These showcase some of the texture from my retreat in Mexico. While there is no salsa dancing this time trust me I have fun treats and surprises in store. Let someone spoil you for a change.

I will also be sharing some new insights I have not shared before (because I continue to evolve and trust me, this move of my whole family to Nicaragua has taught me a lot.)

Also this Nicaragua gathering is unique: it will be the only time that I am offering a book launch party on Saturday night (to celebrate the drop of my ebook on Amazon — and our big goal of best seller status — on October 27). Bring something feel-good and sassy to wear because I am taking you all out on the town to one of the most beautiful restaurants in Granada.

We already have an incredible group of women from across the US — but we have been able to open up two more rooms at the beautiful colonial casa turned boutique hotel. (We have rented the whole thing. It will be a “casa privada” or private house, just for us:)

And I just have this feeling that there are a couple more women who are being called to join us at this unique gathering and want to make space for you and answer all your questions.

Your call in details are below — you may join via your computer or simply call in from your cell phone, whatever is easiest.

Also send me question regarding the Flourish Retreat personally to cp@courtneypinkerton.com and I will address it on the call. (Recorded if you can’t make it live.)

If you feel curious in any way about this special gathering in five hundred year old colonial town (and a super unique travel destination) please join me and gift yourself the opportunity to learn more.
