“Freedom + Free-Spirit Focus”
Connection. Nature. Freedom.
Connect with other women on an intimate playcation in the Pacific Northwest from September 28-October 1, 2017.
If you’re looking for a little getaway, want to get outside (and/or stay cozy inside), enjoy exploring new places, or are just looking for a little time to recharge and meet some lovely new girlfriends, I invite you to come to Washington and enjoy a little wellness focused retreat weekend (aka “playcation"). During this lovely weekend, we will disconnect from daily life and reconnect with ourselves, add play into our daily routine, form friendships with other women and spend time in nature.
Clean your slate of busy, get grounded in your body, settle into a comfortable environment, embrace new activities and step forward to reclaim being fully present in your life. Shift your focus from the highlight reels of technology to fully experiencing what truly fuels your heart in a safe love-filled space.
Together as a small intimate group, we will relax and play in a gorgeous vacation home in the Washington wilderness at our Naturalita Playcation for a long, love fueled weekend from Thursday, September 28 through Sunday, October 1. (Just enough time to take an extended weekend away.)
Start your days by enjoying views of the water and green trees outside the front of our darling modern playcation home. You can choose to sip coffee or tea while breathing in the fresh PNW air, reading a book, journaling, taking a walk outside or on the beach or having a meaningful conversation with other kindred spirit and new friend at breakfast. There's a special magic here in the Pacific Northwest and one of the reasons I've decided to call this area my home.
Spend a day hiking near the Olympic National Park while reconnecting with nature. When we take a step back from the world around us and connect with nature, we’re able to see, feel and experience the personal and natural messages she’s sending us. We can hike as a group or you can wander off solo to explore on your own, this is your time to spend as you please.
We'll also spend time relaxing, set some holistic intentions for our lives, connect in with some “creative activities”, explore self reflection and nourish ourselves with love-fueled healthy food, conversation and new friendships.
Connection + Gathering
Take time to sit and reflect on your dreams, desires and what brings you joy. We'll talk about your personal desire for "freedom", create inspired action lists and focus on your own personal (or ideal) healthy life foundation. It’s important to balance both internal reflection with external exploration. (I call this internal and external wanderlust.) A first time experience doing something new and in a new area enlightens the mind, heart and senses in a deeper way. Your ability to be fully present is awakened.

This playcation is for WOMEN only (sorry guys)!
Yes, this playcation is for WOMEN only. That's who I feel called to connect with - I feel it's essential for other women to connect closely with one another in an intimate space.
If you're an amazing women (yes, that's you) and open to creating a positive mindset shift in your life, sharing a drama-free (seriously, I have no room for drama) environment with other women who desire to make love-fueled changes in their lives, get excited about exploring outdoors and embracing nature's messages, then this little playcation is for you.

You're worth the investment in you. Trust me.

Love Fueled Agenda
We will spend Thursday evening, all day Friday, all day Saturday and Sunday morning together. This gives the women attending a time to settle in and time to explore and connect.
While we will have an agenda, it will be free-flowing in a way, pending the energy of the group. I always have a loving led plan, but part of this weekend together is to learn to trust the process and how everything naturally and beautifully unfolds.
The location of our beautiful vacation home will be sent to you before the start of the retreat. It is about a 1-2 hour drive from the Seattle International Airport. It is a GORGEOUS drive to the vacation home, which is part of your journey to the retreat cabin. (Gorgeous mountain and water views!)
Once your registration is confirmed, I can share more options for transportation to the vacation home and help you connect to others that might be traveling in the same direction. It’s in a remote place, so there is no public transportation directly to the cabin.
There is a non-refundable deposit of $150 that is included in the total retreat investment. The rest of the total amount paid is refundable up until 14 days before the start of the retreat (September 14, 2017) after that date there are no refunds, but the money paid can potentially be used for another program or coaching.
Not included in retreat investment:
Airline fees (if applicable)
Travel insurance (If applicable, highly recommended)
Transportation to and from the retreat cabin
Meals outside of the retreat cabin (there may be 1-2 meals outside of the cabin, scheduling pending)
Arrival and Departure Times
Arrival Gathering + Intentions: Our playcation will start on Thursday, September 28 around 5:00 pm. If you’re flying in, please plan to arrive with enough time to get into town and arrive at the playcation home.
Closing Reflection: The retreat will end on Sunday, October 1 at 9:00 am. We will have some planned activities in the morning to reflect and reconnect and prepare you for your journey home. If you’re flying out of Seattle, plan for a late afternoon or evening departure.
For those ladies that want to extend their stay in Washington, there are a variety of things to do in the Seattle and surrounding areas. I can recommend some of my favorite places to visit on the Kitsap Peninsula as well.
What to Bring
I will send you a list of what to bring once you’re registered for the retreat.
FYI: This will be an active retreat and we will be in the Pacific Northwest in the Fall. I always recommend layers when visiting Washington, a raincoat, comfortable walking/hiking shoes and comfy clothes to hang out in at our playcation home. Nothing fancy is needed, it’s not a fashion show. Since we will be hiking and moving our bodies, comfortable workout clothing is also recommended. More details upon registration.
Food Allergies/Special Dietary Needs/Other
Once registered, please send me a note if you have any food allergies or special dietary needs. Most food served at the cabin will be gluten free and special requests can be made with advanced notice. (You’ll get a little welcome email to share this and more info with me.)
We will be hiking on this retreat; however, we will not be doing anything too crazy. Depending on the weather, I have a couple of hikes in mind that are located close to our playcation home. The hikes are optional, but highly recommended, so if you decide not to go on a hike, you will have the option to stay back at the house, go beachcombing or relax.
If you have specific questions, please feel free to contact me here.
Before you commit to your spot, I have a little questionnaire where you can ask questions and share a little about you! Once you have submitted that form, I will connect with you and can send the payment confirmation to you.
Once you've completed the form, please look for an email from Nicole within 24 hours. I want to make sure your questions are answered prior to making your payment.
Once your spot is confirmed, I'll share more specific details, what to bring and a little questionnaire for you to complete so I can get to know more about you before you arrive.
A note from your playcation host, Nicole:
It’s been a dream of mine to host small intimate retreats throughout the world to guide women and see them connect, explore, open their hearts and form new friendships. I’ve attended many types of retreats around the world and I’m beyond excited to be hosting one here in the Pacific Northwest, one of my favorite places.
Whether you love to travel or have never traveled anywhere or have a hankering to travel solo, I invite you to take this opportunity to follow your heart and intuition and join me and some new friends on this little Naturalita Pacific Northwest Playcation.
My mission is to help other women fall in love with nature, travel and connect with new people, while connecting deeper with themselves - whether it be in their own backyard or across the world. I’ve traveled to many locations around the world solo and with friends; traveling and connecting with others has provided me with so much joy, many life learning experiences and love for the world. It's helped strengthen my desire for a freedom and love-fueled life.
I believe that connecting with others in an intimate and open space helps us learn more about ourselves. Surrounded by nature in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, you’ll have the opportunity to connect with other like-minded women, disconnect from your daily life and reconnect with yourself while seeing new sights, experiencing new adventures, eating healthy food and nourishing your body. I would love to have you join us!
About Nicole. (If you're curious...)
I’m Nicole. I’m your friend, coach, guide and mentor. I’m an (Internationally Certified) Holistic Health & Lifestyle Coach and Holistic Business Mentor; I’m inspired by all things natural and living the healthiest, freedom filled and most “Naturalita” life possible.
I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest in Washington with my man, Lita pup and kitties. I've lived a lot of places in the USA and the world - and have traveled to even more - with the desire to travel to as many countries as my "age". I find comfort in nature, and while I am not a crazy outdoors woman, I love getting out to explore, hike and adventure when I can as I feel nature is one of my greatest teachers and has allowed me multiple opportunities to disconnect to reconnect with my higher self. I'm able to fulfill my internal and external wanderlust in nature and in travel.
My personal journey and holistic focus is what brought me to taking inspired action to support others in creating a life they love. I've had my own interesting journey in life filled with both the super duper dark times and the "oh my gosh, I love my life" moments and everything in between. Life's really a mix of both - but no matter where you're at in your journey, it's important to recognize your challenges as your greatest gifts and never give up on what your heart is telling you to do and where it is telling you to go.
A healthy life is more than eating healthy food and exercise, though both of those are important, my personal mantra is that everything in your life is connected: relationships, career, daily habits, self awareness, self love, positive body confidence, sense of adventure, healthy eating, exercise and the ability to SHINE in your own unique way.
I look forward to connecting with you more.
