I was lost. The pandemic threw me for a loop.
The first few months I was just waiting for things to go back to normal like everyone else I knew. I put my future on pause longing for the return of normalcy.
I had figured out a plan to navigate life as we knew it, but not this new reality.
As the months kept ticking by, I began to feel more disconnected from my path and my purpose. I realized I wasn’t in a good place. I was paralyzed by the chaos of everything going on in the world. I wasn’t living my life in alignment with what was important to me. I didn’t know where I was going. I was wallowing about being stuck at home. I was spending too much time on social media, watching the news and numbing out with Netflix.
I recognized something needed to change.

How I Sprang Back to Life With Ignite Power.
I realized I needed to get off my couch and do my part in creating an equitable world. I love being in service to others and I knew it was my time to step up instead of feeling stuck. I needed something to dramatically shift my perspective. Thankfully this was about the time I learned about the Ignite Power Women’s Leadership Development Retreat.
Going into this program, I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect. I hoped I would have the opportunity to reconnect with my purpose and vision for the future. I wanted to spend time getting clear about my values and priorities. I counted on identifying my limiting beliefs and what was holding me back. I believed this retreat would provide the building blocks in creating the vision for my future self, my future as a leader. I hoped this program would be just what I needed to motivate, energize and inspire me.
What I Experienced During Ignite Power
Sometimes I can’t even put into words the magnitude of the experience I had in this retreat.
First off, I was part of a group of 30+ amazing women. The feeling of support and community was so sincere and genuine that it made it easy for me to be vulnerable and take a look at what’s been going on in my life in a deeper way than I’ve ever done before. It was transformative to go through a program that addresses the potential of women leaders on a holistic level not just from a mindset point of view.
So many programs just address one aspect of a person making them ineffective.
It’s so powerful to realize that you can’t just address the mind and ignore the body and spirit if you want to truly tap into your potential. Not only did I identify limiting beliefs, I learned about how to reprogram my brain to bypass the perceived limitation.
I learned how to integrate my values into my behaviors, living my life in alignment with my priorities.
I was able to identify and name issues and behaviors that were holding me back from showing up as the person I know myself to be. I was able to see where I can be better about supporting other women in my life.
The Gifts of the Ignite Power Retreat
One of the gifts I left this program with, apart from an amazing community of women, was the tools I needed to ground myself in my purpose and show up in alignment with my values every day. This program is so much more than a women’s leadership retreat.
This was about how we can all live our lives to the fullest in every moment even in the midst of a pandemic. It taught me how to make conscious decisions about where and how to invest my time and energy so I can live in alignment with my purpose.
I know the other women in this program experienced transformation in a way that was powerful for them. I invite you to stop waiting for the right moment and join us for the next Ignite Power Women’s Leadership Development retreat in January to unlock your full potential and lead the life you’ve been longing to live.
