Trust and hear the deepest knowing of your heart around your path in business and in life. Find clarity for yourself and your business.


Sometimes, leaps in business result from going much deeper into who you are, and finally revealing yourself authentically in powerful ways. Leaps where you finally get that it’s your business, and you *can* make it your own. Leaps where you finally uncover what it is that you really want.

The big irony about leaps is that from the outside they look like a whole lot of work is what gets you there. And the follow-through of the leap involves work, no question. Yet, for those who have made a leap, it’s always found first within the heart, as a deep knowing of truth, and a revealing of what is calling to your heart.

Combining Deep Spiritual Spaciousness with Business Inspiration

Heart_SessionsThis retreat will be combining daily spiritual practice, movement out in nature, time within a cozy, beautiful sacred space to allow you to find what is already within. And then, in touching that truth, you will spend time gaining help and insight from the leader and the group in making it a reality.

The retreat begins the evening of Tuesday November 15 and ends Saturday November 19 at mid-day, but it also includes pre-retreat preparation and post-retreat follow-up. Before the retreat, the leader will schedule an individual call with you to identify your intentions and goals, challenges and struggles. He will recommend some preparatory practices for you. A post-retreat bridge session about 2 weeks after the retreat will help you transition back into your work and life after the retreat, making grounded practical steps that support the manifestation of your vision in real life.

Who is this retreat for?

For anyone whose business, or relationship to your business, needs a re-visioning. This can include:

  • You’ve hit a wall, you know something needs to change, but not sure what.
  • You know you still love your business deep down, but you’re feeling disconnected from it.
  • You’ve done a lot of work on your business, but you’ve been applying strategies and approaches that are making it feel like a “Franken-business”- it certainly doesn’t feel like you.
  • You are ready to grow bigger, but afraid what that might mean for your integrity, for your freedom, for your creativity.
  • You feel guided that this is the right place to be.

Business arising from the heart

This retreat is not just about nourishing the heart and body. It will also be a huge benefit to your business.

Mark Silver has worked on business strategy a LOT over the years–for himself and for others. Time and again he sees that fears, distractions and busy-ness not only keep you from reaching the depth of your heart, but even if you do touch in deeply, those some distractions affect the clarity of the guidance you return with.

It’s so easy to take hard-won guidance and then let nervousness about survival, or about being accepted or loved, to color the strategy that emerges from that guidance.

By taking the time within the retreat to both go deep, and to also anchor it into a business strategy, means that the profound experience of the retreat won’t be swept away days after you return home, but instead can have lasting impact through 2017 and beyond.

The Cost

The price for this retreat is $2250, including meals (Tuesday dinner through Saturday breakfast) and a private room (you do pay for your own transportation to and from the center).
