Illume Retreat » an intimately restful three-day retreat designed to inspire and empower creatives to build purposeful and intentional businesses that enable them to live, love and do business well.


The illume retreat is a creative retreat unlike any other. We take a unique approach we like to call productive rest, which is a creative combination of rest, relaxation, and active learning that enables us to build the businesses of our dreams. Through planned periods of goal setting and introspection, educational speaker sessions, and hands-on creative breakouts, we walk through a curriculum that leaves you feeling refreshed, empowered and focused as you move forward.

This experience is for the creative who desires to refresh her spirit, the big dreamer who craves a way of doing business intentionally and from the heart, and the boss lady who seeks to walk away with a tight knit community of like-minded women who are cheering her onto a life well-lived. Our 2017 theme is creating from a place of truth, and we’ll spend our time together discussing what it means to create your best work from that truthful place, as well as how to uncover what that individual truth looks like to you! 

Our approach centers around the desire to encourage and prepare you to do business well. For us, it’s not about teaching you the latest marketing ploy or social media platform in order to add more to your ever-growing to-do list. Instead, it’s about refining your workflow, systems and approaches in order to get to the heart of your best work. It’s about equipping you to walk away with a clear plan to live the life that you’ve always dreamed of, and how your business can make that happen.

Through actionable takeaways, inspiring conversations, and plenty of community building, this little retreat seeks to help you return to what matters most in your life. You’ll step away from your busy life and return feeling refreshed, inspired and motivated to pursue your big goals.

Join us for three days and three nights in beautiful Waco, Texas. Nestled in the heart of this vibrant city surrounded by live oak trees, and a newfound community of like-minded entrepreneurs, you’ll feel like you’re miles away from the hustle of small business life as you unplug for a few days of true relaxation. Join us around the table for responsibly sourced meals, engage with us through impactful speaker sessions, and try your hand at something new during one of our hands-on creative breakouts! Your lodging, meals, beverages and everything in-between are included in your registration. All you have to do is get here, and we’ll take it from there.

More than the luxury accommodations and all-inclusive experience, you’ll walk away with a tribe of like-minded women who believe in you, and are cheering you on to creating that intentional, heartfelt business you’ve been longing for. Registration is limited to just 8 attendees in order to preserve the intimacy of this retreat. Are you ready to join us?
