Generally, I was stressed, spread thin and had no time for myself due to my various roles and responsibilities as small business owner, mom, wife, and friend. I felt the need to reset and reconnect but was having difficulty finding the time to do so. My desire was to make deeper connections with myself and with those around me but I just couldn’t figure out how to slow down long enough to focus on what I felt was important.
I decided I needed to get away but not just an ordinary vacation. I chose to partake in an Inspirational Journey lead by Dr. Suzanne Nixon. I believed that this type of time away would force me to slow down with purpose and I’d learn new techniques to deal with the stressors of my life. In September 2012, I found myself driving though the Allegheny Mountains to join a group of women I had never met for a four day retreat at the Homestead Resort in Hot Springs, VA. Certainly, I was apprehensive about attending the retreat with a group of woman I didn’t know but I quickly found we were all like-minded in our desire to find a deeper sense of self.
As I hoped, during the Inspirational Journey retreat, I was able to relax, focus on life goals and experience different ways to address the demands of everyday life. The Homestead was a beautiful setting with its elegance and stateliness. We enjoyed day hikes, wellness seminars, guided meditations, delicious meals, and even enough time for a spa treatment. Dr. Nixon is a wonderfully skilled facilitator and life coach. She provided structured sessions and meaningful activities that left me refreshed, grounded and with a solid sense of purpose.
It was a tremendously enlightening experience overall and it was the beginning of a huge life change for me. I left the retreat with a toolbox of strategies and a different perspective that allowed me to attain the goals I set. Even years later, I am still incorporating the useful lessons Dr. Nixon presented at the Homestead in my everyday life.
Inspirational Journeys was truly a life-altering experience.

it entails having a sound, clear and positive mind,
the ability to manage emotions,
and the ability to communicate effectively."
