Retreat Planning For Coaches, Authors, Teachers & Facilitators!

Creating a retreat can be a lot of work, for sure — especially planning and negotiating with the retreat center or hotel! And if you are planning an actual itinerary where you’re traveling from hotel to hotel and require transport, guides, and group activities — that can be even more daunting!

But don’t let that stop you from creating your dream retreatAles Struna is here!

Ales is our Director of Custom & Group Travel Specialist here at Journeys of the Spirit® Travel company, and he knows retreats!

We’ve been planning retreats and journeys for facilitators since 2003, and we know what works and what doesn’t — plus, we have the connections you need world-wide to plan the PERFECT retreat, with activities that will make you shine as a trip leader.

Ales knows how to plan a retreat that your tribe will be talking about for years!

  • Wondering how you’ll ever find the time for all the little details that go into planning your retreat logistics like location, accommodations and itinerary?
  • Do you need help finding the perfect location and venue for your retreat?
  • Is negotiating with retreat centers, hotels, transportation, and tour operators outside of your skill set?
  • Do you dislike the task of creating legal trip forms, registering people, and dealing with tons of calls from folks?
  • Would you rather totally delegate the tasks of collecting funds and registration forms?
  • Would you love to have a world-class travel agent available for you AND your clients from planning to reservations to on the retreat itself?

If so, Ales can help with what’s ailing you!

Thank you for everything you did for us – you helped make this trip possible, and you helped make it super easy for me to put together the trip of a lifetime. And the champagne that each hotel had for us for our honeymoon was a pleasant surprise, thank you. I will unequivocally recommend you.
