Here's what women had to say about the last Women on Fire Retreat!


Debbie Phillips Invites You to the 2016 Retreat



Celebrating Your Unstoppable Power!

With Debbie Phillips, Founder Women on Fire
The Women on Fire team
and Special Guests

Whether you’ve attend many retreats in the past, or if this is your first, this is your chance to set aside the baggage of your day-to-day routine – and JOIN US to get inspired, re-energized, re-connected to other phenomenal women, and supported in your dreams!

If you are looking for your spark, or you are simmering, or you are “on fire” about your life, this retreat is exactly what you need!

In one magical weekend, you will connect with like-hearted women, celebrate your life, and learn the latest secrets and strategies to step boldly into your dreams.

Hello, Fabulous Woman ~

Please join us on April 8-9, 2016 to meet other inspiring women for this magical weekend!

You will spend two action-packed and reflective days (with plenty of time for fun in the dynamic city of Nashville) surrounded by the uplifting energy of other women working to create their most fulfilling lives.

This is an interactive workshop that will help you to ignite your true desires and take powerful steps toward the life you truly want and deserve!

At this transformational event, you will have a safe space to celebrate your life and launch you into a new year toward your dreams, desires and wishes!

A sampling of what you can expect during the retreat

A keynote presentation by Debbie Phillips -- “Celebrating Your Unstoppable Power!”

You will learn:

  • A powerful, but little known strategy to build momentum toward achieving your dreams without losing your inspiration.
  • How to build a powerful, supportive community without being a “networker” or annoying.
  • How to keep your energy from flagging when the going gets tough.
  • How to increase your confidence and tame your fears.
  • 5 mistakes that could be keeping you stuck and struggling – and how to eliminate them.

And our other inspiring speakers will show you:

  • Tools and strategies to live your best life!
  • How they made their dreams come true and you can, too.
  • How to get support without having your dreams punctured by well-meaning friends and family.
  • Ways to remove obstacles – even when everything seems hopeless.
  • How to turn adversity to your advantage.
  • Strategies to unlock your creativity.

You will have interactive experiences to help you create a path and go for the dreams you choose.

(Be assured, you will never be called on or forced to speak if you don’t want to.)

Our guest speakers will be announced in the future. They will be experts in their field, highly accomplished, and they’ve successfully overcome life’s toughest obstacles. Their presentations will touch your heart, mind and soul.

This retreat is for you, if you…

  • Have attended in the past and are ready for the next leap forward in your one, amazing, phenomenal life!
  • Are going through one (or more) of life’s many transitions and need inspiration, strategies and support, confidence and courage to move forward fearlessly.
  • Feel successful and that you are on the path to your dreams, but you want and need to be recharged, refreshed and reinvigorated.
  • Love being in the energy and support of other great women!
  • Are excited about the possibilities your life holds and want practical strategies and support to take it to the next level.
  • Have been connected to Women on Fire for a while but have not yet been to a retreat.
  • Enjoy your Women on Fire monthly membership and want to experience the opportunity to meet other Women on Fire members in person.
  • Are worn out and worn down, and you need a break to reset and reorient your life toward what you want the most.
  • On paper, you appear to have it all, but things still just don’t feel right. There is emptiness where your joy should be.
  • Understand the value and benefit of spending time with other talented, inspiring women and you want the opportunity to share and celebrate your life and theirs.

If even one of these statements describes what you’re feeling and captures what you want for your life right now, that’s a good sign that this event is for you!

Women on Fire is the ultimate ‘you go,girl’ community for inspiration and support to manifest your own inner light.

~ Marianne Williamson, New York Times best-selling Author, Speaker, Lecturer

Here’s what past attendees have said about their experiences at a Women on Fire Retreat:

The Women on Fire Retreat is the most inspirational, therapeutic, cleansing event. It gives you the opportunity to meet courageous, genuine women who are willing to share their life experiences, some joyful and some not. Be open-minded, be real and be a great listener and you will learn more about yourself — who you are and what lights your spark.

~ Wendy Wood, Naples, FL

Women on Fire is a group like I've never experienced before! There is such careful intention for genuine support and compassion that everyone walks away feeling like they've been hoisted onto the shoulders of fabulous new friends!

~ Susan Kruger, Detroit, MI

I came to the Women on Fire Retreat as a newer member, and I wasn't sure what to expect. And I really didn’t know how I would answer the question “What are you on fire about?” The retreat exceeded my expectations. It is always great to hear other people’s stories; it helps you feel like you aren’t alone in this world. Debbie said things would "spark" as a result of the retreat. I wasn't sure about that, but they really did when I was driving home from the airport. I now feel like I’ve been set in motion to follow the right steps for my yet-to-be-defined dream.

~ Mary Beth Cowardin, Columbus, OH

This was my second Women on Fire Retreat, and it was absolutely delightful! I have gone to so many events over the years and usually have left feeling empty (after having bought some program I just HAD to have!). During this retreat, I connected with several women at a very deep, heart-to-heart level. Debbie and Women on Fire create that spectacular safe space to allow those connections. If you are looking for more real and meaningful connections in your life, I hope to meet you in Nashville in April 2016!

~ Stephanie Dalfonzo, Danbury, CT

Like many, I wasn't sure what to expect at the retreat. I had already benefitted greatly from becoming a member of Women on Fire and connecting with other like-hearted women through the live chats and social media. But the retreat took that to a whole new level. Upon entering the room, I was greeted and welcomed by women I knew — and some I didn't know. I never once felt uncomfortable or like I didn't belong. For me, the Retreat was joyful. Stunning. Refreshing. Empowering. Real. I received a kind of soul renewal I haven't felt in years. I can't stop talking about my experiences and reliving some of the most powerful moments we shared. I made new friends and can't wait for the many opportunities we will have to gather again.

~ Sheryl Snyder, Boston, MA

I came to the retreat uncertain and feeling alone. I left feeling alive again, hopeful and heard! Thank you all for opening your hearts and listening. What a beautiful group of women you are! This was just what I needed at this time in my life and I am forever grateful.

~ Rochelle Togo-Figa, Charlotte, NC

Honestly, I had sworn off these “types of things,” as in the past I found them to be thinly disguised sales conferences. You got just enough information before finding out that the rest would come only if you invested in a high-priced program. Not so with Debbie and Women on Fire. Although I chose to do Vision Day in September, I found the event stood alone and was incredibly valuable without spending another dime after I got there. The speakers, the other members and Debbie, Rob and their team delivered everything and more than I had expected. I feel full, and my soul is nourished. At 61, I found that the retreat reignited my spark!

~ Karen Dodd, Vancouver, British Columbia

The more I invest in myself, the more my life improves. Women on Fire gives me the community and the support I need to keep asking for more and living the life I have dreamed of. Women on Fire keeps me moving forward. I just love it!

~ Holly Getty, New York, NY

I came to this retreat with butterflies in my stomach, as I didn't know what to expect. But when I left, I left with so many sisters that I am overwhelmed. What a blessing to be a part of such a loving, encouraging and beautiful group of women. I walk away with the confidence to say that I "AM" a stay-at-home mom with a fire lit so bright that it can't be extinguished. I thank you all for the boost in my confidence to not label myself and to know that I am more than what I think I am.

~ Christy Venezio, Orlando, FL

Women On Fire is such a special place for us to celebrate our joys, meet kindred spirits, experience full circle moments that give us goosebumps, say thank you to women that have paved the way, realize we’re not alone, laugh until our sides hurt, feel held and seen and heard, speak our truth and of course always to feel inspired. It’s just a great place to be.

~ Cari Vollmer, Minneapolis, MN

I absolutely loved the connection and support from all of my Women on Fire sisters. I walked away refreshed, open-hearted and inspired! Debbie attracts and exposes us to authentic, heart-felt, need-to-know women and keynote speakers. If you want to be supported and inspired by a fantastic group of women, Women on Fire is it!

~ Amy Marzluff, Columbus, OH

Debbie and her team offered us such a sumptuous buffet of life strategies. I learned much more about living authentically and see little differences each day in the choices I am making. I am grateful to be part of this wonderful Women on Fire community.

~ Linda Woggon, Columbus, OH
