Create Your Own Magical Retreat

The 9 Magic Ingredients For a Successful, Exceptionally Memorable Retreat. Design retreats the way I live my life.

Ciao! Dr. Elena Agrizzi here, Success Coach for women entrepreneurs

As an Italian raised in Venice, I embrace Michelangelo’s Renaissance­inspired worldview, always drawn to creativity, intricate beauty, and expansive learning. I am writing to you today to invite you to invite you to design and host your own experiential retreats anywhere in the world.

As a direct outcome of my extensive experience working in the event industry, and in keeping with my own vision of helping my clients create Magic Inspired Lives, I recently designed and hosted two magical retreats for my own clients, first in Venice, and then in Paris.

These retreats filled up quickly, despite the triple­digit price. Participants consistently describe these events as “life­changing,” “game­changing,” and/or “the experience of a lifetime.”

The Secret

Many of my coaching peers and friends have designed and managed their own retreats, finding that no matter how much they attempt to arrange logistics around their rich content, they struggle to fill the seats, convey a clear message, or ensure that the event runs smoothly for participants. With eyebrows raised, they have been asking me, “HOW do you do this?”.

My answer is that it is not simply a matter of following steps, making good decisions, or checking tasks off a “To do list.” I design retreats the way I live my life: Off the beaten path, inspired, and visionary. Every aspect of the retreat is experiential. Participants who show up are treated like royalty, which in turn enriches the content, the insights, and the powerful connections that are forged.

Since I see you as an esteemed coaching colleague, I’d like to share my nine essential elements, the main ingredients I use when I help coaches design and offer their very own signature retreats.

The Nine Essential Elements of a Visionary Retreat

Vision

Have a Vision that is coherent with who you are.

Location

Find a city and venue that Complement your vision.

Extra Value

Provide Extra Value for ongoing use after the event is over and everyone has gone home.

Your Story

Create a theme out of your Personal Story.

Experience

Provide opportunity for an emotional, extraordinary Experience.

Every Aspect

Make sure that Every Aspect of the logistics and content reflect your style and vision.

Needs

Be aware of your Clients’ Needs (both physical and emotional).

Tools

Use Creative Tools to deliver the content and bring the lessons home.

Marketing

Integrate your Marketing materials and channels to reflect all of these considerations.
I am so excited about working with coaches like you to go deeper into your own Brand ESSENCE to help you create a signature retreat. Your unique retreat experience will be marked by your own vision, and will effortlessly attract your own ideal clients.

As an example, my “Live the Magic Retreat in Paris” was designed for my own “ideal client:” She is a woman entrepreneur, age 35+, who felt overwhelmed, tired and out of purpose. She felt there is some vaguely defined “magical” life available for her out there somewhere. She needed to get in contact with her passion and talent again. And she may not have realized it, but I knew she needed to learn to let go and delegate.

My vision was to create a fairy tale environment where she could feel the beauty and the love around her and feel like the Queen of her life. Paris is the quintessential City of Love. So, I zeroed in on a real Castle and started planning.

My regal vision instantly captured my clients’ own imagination: as soon as they received my promotional materials prominently featuring the castle and the city, they began to fall in love. They were drawn in and convinced with little additional information or enticement.

Action and strategy are most effective when they come from within, based on a uniquely fitted bigger purpose that motivates and inspires the individual. I designed the content and the activities to hold each participant “safely” so that they could overcome their limited beliefs and find the right strategies and actions to pursue and realize what they truly desired in life. The program activated all of the participants’ minds, bodies, emotions, and spirits.
