Weekend Retreats

Hey Mama! When was the last time you had the spaciousness, away from household chores, and being responsible for little humans… to hear yourself think, to tune into the larger picture of what you’re creating in the world?

Announcing our newest weekend experience…

Biz Retreat Logo FINAL

June 22- June 24, 2018

Pine, AZ

That’s right!  Registration for the First Annual Magical Mama Business Retreat is now open!!

Are you a Mom who…

  • Feels called to have a greater impact… but unwilling to sacrifice time with your family?
  • Started a business… but marketing feels like manipulation or too salesy?
  • Senses that your next big idea is out there… if you only had the spaciousness to receive it?
  • Would love to bring in more income for your family… but doesn’t want to get burnt out by an even busier schedule?
  • Is so busy maintaining a successful business… that there’s no time to dream or take action necessary to grow?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, keep reading!

Imagine… when you come home on Sunday, having…

  • A simple, doable business plan aligned with your values
  • A schedule that creates time for success (and honors your family)
  • Confidence asking for what you want, and receiving it
  • A refreshed feeling from having had some much-needed “me” time
  • Greater confidence in sharing your message
  • And… (our personal favorite!) …An accountability sister to meet with regularly for continued success

This retreat may NOT be a good fit for you if…

  • You are 100% content with your business as it is now
  • You’re not in a position to make your own business decisions
  • You have not yet finished training essential to provide services
  • You are not actively raising children

This retreat IS for you if…

  • You’re ready to have a business that fills you up instead of depleting you, so you can be even more present to those you love
  • You’re ready to transform your part-time gig into a full-time love affair
  • You already have a business, but are tired of doing things alone
  • You understand the value of investing in yourself, and your business, as key ways to help both grow
  • You love nature, organic meals, and spending time with other women who uplift you

The ideal environment to grow your business…


Our Cozy Retreat Center!

Escape the heat of summer to breathe in the cool, crisp air of the Pine forest of Northern Arizona.  Beautiful cabins, surrounded by trees, elk, deer and the quiet of nature, away from home responsibilities, is an ideal setting to get clear on your next steps in creating a business that nourishes you, and your family.

Magical Mama Biz Retreat is limited to 10 participants, allowing for intimate workshops, where we truly get to know one another, what we value most, and EXACTLY what our individual businesses need right now to thrive.

In this cozy & relaxed environment, mom entrepreneurs become each other’s biggest fans, cheering each other on, and developing a sisterhood that makes ALL the difference.

When is this retreat?

Friday, June 22 through Sunday, June 24, 2018


Pine, Arizona  (in the cool mountainous forest of northern Arizona, about 1.5 hours from Phoenix)

Wendy Holloway, Health Coach & Mama, had this to say about her experience…

“My sessions with Blue are among my most treasured and beautiful pieces of my self-growth and development. Her impeccable and masterful coaching allowed me to have an experience of being different without having to remember to be different. As a result of my sessions with her I have found a complete shift in my way of being.
I remember reflecting after my first session and thinking that the one session was so impactful that I would have paid $1000 for the results that I got from just one 90 minute session!  I highly recommend her as a deeply intuitive and highly skilled deep-dive coach.”

What’s it like to retreat with us?


“Jen and Blue created an amazing open comfortable space for us to reconnect with the true meaning of being a mother. The most impactful thing for me was when I discovered that I needed to remember to play! I am forever grateful to these women for their endless passion and love for women.” -Iana, Chandler, AZ
