You are invited to Flourish LIVE: A Retreat for Women at Morgan’s Rock, An Eco-Resort on the Pacific Coast of Nicaragua
I want to issue a special invitation for you to join me this May 17-21 2018 for a eco-luxurious three night retreat (optional complimentary fourth night) at Morgan’s Rock Hacienda and Eco-Lodge. Located on a 4000-acre expanse of Nicaraguan jungle, nearly half of Morgan’s Rock’s vast property is a private protected reserve including a gorgeous mile-long sandy beach. I am so excited to travel with you to this unique setting, where tropical jungle and sandy beach embrace.
From the moment you walk across the 50 yard wooden bridge suspended in the canopy, you can expect a consciously-curated experience where alone time is balanced with meaningful conversations with other women and lively small group coaching sessions, where you have the opportunity to enjoy the lush natural beauty nearby, to hang out in a hammock and enjoy a beautiful sunset, to listen to yourself and to be deeply heard, and to enjoy the daily siesta with an actual nap (because we hear ourselves better when well rested) or by exploring the shore on a solo adventure or with new or old friends — drinking up its rich textures, sweeping vistas, and frequent (protected) nesting turtle visitors.
Each participant in the retreat gets to enjoy her own beach bungalow and porch to soak up the view.
In addition to the live event your registration includes immediate access to the complete 8-Step Flourish Coaching Program, including audio lessons, chapter excerpts, written guides and live Q & A calls leading up to the retreat. This will help you arrive fully ready to dive in to prepare your custom Flourish Formula or blueprint and to work through any remaining challenges with the support of the group.
Read on for details.
Carefully built to minimally impact the surrounding area, the bungalows were designed to make guests feel at one with nature and to savor forest and ocean views. Outside on the balcony is a special feature – a queen size day bed suspended by thick hemp rope, the perfect place to rest, to write in your journal, or to dream.
Praise for The Flourish Retreat
“Everything including the location, content, and coaching awakened my senses to a new level.”
I wanted to feel spacious and connected with nature. Achieved! After the retreat, my mood was light, inspired and gave me clarity that I’m on the right path doing this specific work. My outlook on life in general got a boost of encouragement and momentum to keep moving onward and upward. Qi gong was helpful, working Enneagram was extremely impactful, integrating meditation and intentions throughout the retreat were very effective. Seeing everyone’s Flourish Formula was also very powerful! My favorite elements where the content and culture, especially all the amazing nature time: boat ride, an afternoon on the private island, hammock, yoga overlooking a volcanic crater lake etc. I would definitely recommend this retreat if you are looking for a space that will give you the opportunity to feel loved, nurtured, inspired and challenged all at once.

“A Beautiful Mix of Nature and Nurture Time.”
At first I was concerned about travelling alone in Nicaragua and wondered was gifting myself this experience “indulgent” and would my stomach issues be OK? But the experience recharged me! It was a huge treat to be given the VIP treatment by Courtney and her team from the moment I said “yes” to this experience. As the person who’s typically the planner for family and friend vacations, as well as wellness retreats of my own, it was food for my soul. “Community is the new guru” – I think you’re really onto something with that. It feels like I’m on the cutting edge of something big! Thank you for taking such good care of us, and for sharing your love of Nicaragua so beautifully! Everything was really wonderful, and I feel fortunate to have had the experience. I don’t remember the last time I felt so instantly connected to a group of women. There’s a like-mindedness that is at once inspiring and comforting. I have a renewed dedication to my Flourish Formula, and am loving working through the Mastermind process with my new friends. The Enneagram work, especially the Visual Enneagram, was also very helpful for me. It inspired me to dive deeper into this tool and having the chance to visit one-on-one with others who share my personality type was an incredible gift.

Morgan’s Rock includes a Jungle and Beach Sanctuary plus a Low-Impact Farm
Morgan´s Rock 4,000-acre Private Nature Reserve is frequented year-round by two species of endangered turtles and they are proud to support sea turtle conservation efforts. Through your participation in this retreat you are supporting a safe nesting and hatching environment for these turtles and may even have an opportunity to witness the baby hatchlings scurrying out to sea!
Other animals inhabiting the jungle reserve and estuary around Morgan’s Rock include howler monkeys, macaws, anteaters, sloths and white-tipped deer, to name just a few. Most of the birds are typical of subtropical dry forest lands, including scarlet macaws, trogons, kingfishers, herons and egrets.
The Flourish Retreat includes an optional guided hike through the jungle to witness some truly extraordinary species of animals in their natural habitat. In addition to the private nature sanctuary, Morgan’s Rock hosts a working low-impact farm. Prepare to enjoy delicious meals sourced by local and in season ingredients. There is even an optional tropical farm tour!
Your experience will also include meal offerings of delicious, fresh local food (daily brunch, dinner and snacks, because you need good nourishment) and the opportunity to craft your own specific plan or custom Flourish Formula to receive the next level of your life (and work) as well as get coaching around any gremlins or painful, limiting thoughts that are keeping you stuck.
You will enjoy ample free time to explore, to rest, to lay on the beach or go for a walk or run, to share, to listen, to read, to write, to get a pedicure or manicure, or enjoy a massage in the onsite spa. To drink fresh fruit juices or delicious local coffee. To enjoy.
Because beyond all of the beauty around you may also hear the invitation to step deeper inside your own interior landscape.
As women we sometimes feel like we are ignoring our own body and soul needs, in little and big ways, as we work to contribute to a better world.
There is another way…
One that doubles down on your feminine knowing.
One in which you can wake from the sleepwalk of busyness, be authentic with yourself and others and design your own custom formula for the life you desire from the inside out. And (here is the surprising bit) discover that, in so doing, you are more of service than ever before.
I’m so excited to be sharing this body of work with you including fresh insights from a year of big growth for me personally and professionally. You will also be among the first to receive a print copy of my new book The Flourish Formula when it comes out later this year! Read on for more details. The retreat is already
more than half-full. ONLY ONE SPOT REMAINS. Reserve your bungalow today!
Our retreat starts at 10:00AM Friday morning, May 18th and we conclude at 10:00AM Monday morning May 21st. You also have the (highly encouraged!) option of arriving on May 17th and enjoying a complimentary fourth night to get settled before the event begins.
The retreat includes brunch and dinner every day as well as my new book and a folder full of juicy resources and other treats. *Meals are hearty and many guests prefer only two a day however additional meals, snacks and drinks are available in the onsite restaurant and bar.
What is included? Basically everything except for airfare. The airport to fly into is Managua International Airport (or the Augusto C. Sandino International Airport). We will be offering transportation from the airport to Morgan’s Rock Eco-Lodge, located near the beach town of San Juan del Sur (about a 2 hour drive).
Your registration gives you immediate access to the Flourish 8-Step Coaching Program (so you can get started with this material right away!) plus covers your full retreat experience with delicious local meals, group coaching sessions to aid you in moving through the challenges and struggles which keep you from receiving your next level in life, meditations, lounging or swimming at the pool, a copy of my book, written materials and other treats (including the optional guided hike through the nature preserve). Plus you leave with your Flourish Formula, your custom plan for slowing down, thriving in your personal life and releasing your best gifts.
Are you ready? Let’s do this! Reach out to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll share bungalow options and pricing details. Or you can schedule a call with me. This allows us to get to know each other, and for me to hear more about what you are looking for in a restorative retreat and answer your questions! You can reserve your call here.
I will be honest, this retreat & Flourish coaching program is not for everyone. Like all supportive services — massage therapist, midwife, yoga instructor — fit matters. For that reason a quick phone chat allows us to get to know each other better, for me to hear a bit about what is stirring in your life, and to answer any questions that you have.
Plus these calls are fun — women often report feeling lighter for just having gotten some things out of their head and support for growing edges. Even if you aren’t sure you want to invest in a coaching program or retreat right now, I hope you will take advantage of this free gift and reach out to schedule your Flourish Call today.
I know you are super busy. Often my clients have a really hard time finding space in their own lives for themselves. In fact on the rare moments where they do slow down they feel such an internal sense of pressure that it is almost uncomfortable to really rest and recharge. That is why I find retreats so powerful because they get you out of your own environment (and head) and allow you the opportunity to GET PERSPECTIVE about where you are being invited forward into some changes in your life. And together we make your custom plan for getting there.
So whether you are brand new or a returning coaching client, I hope you will schedule your call today.
Sometimes women worry about taking up my time — this my love, is your inner critic. I know her well because I have one. Please don’t let that concern keep you from booking a complementary session. This is my life’s work, helping busy women to slow down and accomplish more (as well as thrive in their relationships, home-life and more.) And I would love to talk to you more about Flourish Live and help you determine if this experience is a good fit for you. Time is limited. I only have a
handful of spots TWO BUNGALOWS remaining for this retreat so I invite you to book your call today. You can also email email@example.com with questions or details.
Praise for The Flourish Retreat
“The Flourish Retreat and program was a magical experience.”
I was nervous to go so far away without knowing anyone. I had never done anything like this and was concerned about the logistics (sleeping arrangements, dining, etc) However, underneath that it was really about trusting myself and folks I did not know to open up and discuss a subject/topic that was so intimate and personal. That is not a side of myself that I share openly and I could fell that discussing this subject matter would be like opening Pandora’s box. The retreat was a magical experience. Being in nature and beautiful surrounding felt like being wrapped in a nurturing hug as we were growing through the process. The materials are wonderful but combined with the setting took it to another level. For me, I had to flip the script (although I would not have been able to verbalize that before). Being in a totally different environment, language, food, culture helped me “do it differently.”
—Becky Keane, Boston MA
“All I could want is more.”
I’ve been to many trainings and I can say I have never felt so loved and cared for… All of the time and intention you put into the retreat were noticed and appreciated. All I could want is MORE.
—Aimee, Marketing Coach + Speaker
“Courtney brings expertise while being approachable.”
You have such a beautiful teaching presence. I find it absolutely amazing at how you manage to bring full expertise and skill, all the while being approachable and invitational and empowering. You are a true teacher. Also, I loved hearing you speaking Spanish!
—Skyler McGee, Visual Artist
“One of the best gifts I have ever given myself.”
At first I had a slight hesitation about the location. After a little thought I decided Nicaragua would be an exciting adventure! I felt nourished, nurtured and pampered every step of the way. The group of women was outstanding. What an amazing opportunity to learn and share with like-minded women at different stages of this journey. I loved the real-time opportunity to consciously interact with many different Enneagram (personality) types. And I learned small ways to pause, do a body scan and discern the next action. These make a big difference and allow me to make clean decisions in my life.
