Retreat Testimonials

Check out some of the testimonials from people who have experienced the Women's Alaska Retreat recently.

Jasmine C.

"The words to properly convey what Tana and her team/family offer to those willing to take this leap don’t exist.  I’m not a “young” woman, and I’ve been blessed to travel dozens of countries with amazing people and we’ve had incredible adventures and have crazy stories to tell, but being in Alaska with Tana was different. I now measure my life by everything that happened before the moment I stood alone on the tundra looking out on a place that is the closest to untouched wildness I’ll probably ever know, and everything after. I dare you to find anything that will make you feel more alive and deeply human. As a leader, Tana strikes the perfect balance of thinking and taking care of everything while still leaving space for the trip to develop in its own natural way as the land, weather and the particular grouping of women dictate - which you’ll come to learn is the secret to Alaska that makes it so alluring. This trip will change your life if you let it.”

“Tana, her family, her coaches on the retreat Were all FANTASTIC!!! Could not ask for a better experience. It was so refreshing to go somewhere new and unknown with people like Tana who are locals and know the area confidently. I felt safe, and well guided the entire retreat! The experiences I had in Alaska on the retreat were definitely bucket list worthy!! 1000000% DO IT!

Thanks to this group of lovely souls I have stepped out of my comfort zone. I have found the love of friendship, the excitement of traveling and the joy of always having something to look forward to. Sometimes you just have to trust yourself and book the trip”

“No words can express how incredible of an experience Tana and her coaches provided. This was a trip of a lifetime and I would do it every year if I could. It was a perfect opportunity to disconnect, explore, get in touch with nature, and be around so many other amazing, inspirational, and like-minded people. The leaders of this retreat made the entire experience unforgettable from their knowledge, authenticity, patience, and passion. It's hard to put this experience into words or explain how one week could change your life . But it truly did . Disconnecting from all your responsibilities and the world, gives you time to really think.  Away from service, your titles, your day to day, it just lets you be yourself. For me, the best part was finally finding women that I instantly connected with . That doesn't happen easily and it has changed me. Not only for that week but every moment since then. Best experience and the best team hands down”
