September 30, 2017 @ 10:15 am - October 1, 2017 @ 1:00 pm


Eventbrite - Career Fulfillment Weekend Retreat & Culinary Experience

Craving a More Fulfilled Life?

Are you a successful professional who knows you want to find more satisfying work, realize your potential, and utilize your best skills – the skills you love to use the most?

Do you feel stuck in a rut and demotivated and you yearn to wake up each morning excited for what the day ahead might bring; knowing that it will be full of people and activities that inspire you?

Have you fallen into a daily routine and filled your life with commitments that weigh you down and wish you could bring more of what fulfills your into your life – if only you knew what that meant for you?

Have you known for some time that you need to make some changes and yet somehow you never find the time and the energy to do that?

Do you secretly wonder if there’s something more you should be doing with your life and you wish you knew what that might be?

Did any of those statements resonate for you?

If any one of those statements is true for you, this weekend retreat could change your life. Even better, it;s been designed to be a fun weekend  which incorporates self-discovery and a delicious culinary experience plus a unique element – additional support from your workshop leader after you return home to help you integrate your discoveries into your life. 

Sometimes we need to step away from our everyday routine to be able to gain a new perspective and explore new possibilities that will bring us a greater sense of satisfaction, joy and fulfillment.

Isn’t this already sounding like something you want to sign up for?

Ready to Take Action and Do Something About It?

If the idea of bringing more joy and fulfillment into your work and personal life intrigues you and if you know you’re ready to do something about it, this weekend retreat in Victoria will help you kick-start the process. Even better, if you’re a foodie, this weekend is the perfect combination of personal exploration and culinary adventure. In his latest book Your Life’s Purpose: Uncover What Really Fulfills You, best-selling author Michael J. Losier defines fulfillment as knowing what brings you joy. Once you’re clear on that, you can create strategies to bring more of what gives you joy into your life. We’ll be leveraging Michael’s proven process to uncover your personal top fulfillment needsat the start of the retreat and then explore new possibilities for your future.

Are you ready to unlock the secrets of your top fulfillment needs?

Curious About the Culinary Experience?

As a self-professed foodie and proud member of Tourism Victoria, I wanted to create a weekend retreat on Vancouver Island that was both fun and enlightening.

I’ve partnered with award winning Chef Shirley Lang, owner of Spirit Culinary Excursions to create a culinary adventure on Saturday afternoon and evening where you’ll explore southern Vancouver Island’s culinary diversity and distinct landscape.

After a delicious lunch at one of Victoria’s top restaurants, a luxury limo will take you on a culinary adventure culminating in a delicious dinner at Unsworth Winery, one of the top wineries in the Cowichan Valley.

You’ll have the opportunity to converse with Sue, Chef Shirley and your fellow retreat participants in a fun and relaxed environment, while immersing yourself in some of the most tantalizing tastes Vancouver Island has to offer.

Love the idea of hanging out with other foodies while discovering what fulfills you?

What’s Included in the Retreat Package?

This package is so much more than workshops and a culinary adventure.
