- You enjoy your Women on Fire membership and want to experience the opportunity to meet other Women on Fire members in person.
- You feel successful and that you are on the path to your dreams, but you want and need to be recharged and reinvigorated.
- You're going through one (or more) of life’s many transitions and need inspiration, strategies and support, confidence and courage to move forward fearlessly.
- You are worn out and worn down, and you need a break to reset, reorient and reinvigorate your life toward what you want the most.
- You have long-held dreams and desires that you just can't seem to make happen fully -- yet!
- You are dazed, disappointed and wondering what happened to all the exciting dreams you used to have. Let’s dust them off so you can start moving toward them again.
- On paper, you appear to have it all, but things still just don’t feel right. There is emptiness where your joy should be.
- You 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:
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
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
It was nothing short of magic the way you, Debbie Phillips and your amazing team, created the environment that allowed us to connect with each other. I am so aware that I need more of that heart-to-heart connection in my life... and I've taken action on my Action Step to get it!~ Barbara Hogan, Delmar, NY
After standing in and sharing my truth (though difficult it may have been), I feel much lighter and brighter because it has brought me into alignment. A world of gratitude to Debbie Phillips and her wonderful team, and all of you beautiful women on fire for this soul-stirring and enlightening experience.~ Mary Canty Merrill, Denver, CO
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
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
