A weekend retreat/workshop and a   kickstart into the new You!!!


We are excited to be sharing our “tools” and opening our nurturing home in the beautiful mountains of Asheville, NC, for a weekend retreat/workshop with Janese and Roger! This weekend is tailor-made just for you. Through a questionnaire, we will look at the areas of your life that need more focus, and set the weekend schedule up to help you move into your truest and greatest potential.

Central to the Kickstarting into the new You will be an individual or couples empowerment session and working with various modalities to facilitate connecting with your vision. The weekend will also entail healthy eating, walks in the surrounding wooded trails, sauna, and yoga. Expect lots of great discussion and reflective space to get you moving into the new beginnings that you deserve!
