2020 Life by Design Retreat

January 18 - 20, 2020

Has your life become something that happens to you?  Is time slipping away while you're just maintaining, trying to keep everything from falling apart through sheer effort and momentum?

Or maybe you have a dream but overwhelm, negative thinking and doubt keep getting in the way.  

It’s easy to get lost in the day-to-day of dealings of life.  Life is so busy that it just keeps happening, then suddenly it's 10, 15, even 20 years later and you wonder "what happened?" 

Where is your life going, and is it going there on purpose?  Have you done what you wanted to? Accomplished goals that make your heart sing?  Or have you simply just not fallen apart?

This retreat puts you back in the driver's seat of your life.  Join us for three days of rest, reflection, and expert coaching in order to map out a plan for your life that excites you, and set goals to get there.  All in the company of other amazing women.  

What you get: 

  • 3 days, 2 nights at a beautiful retreat setting on the Oregon Coast
  • Healthy and delicious breakfast, snacks, and dinner each day
  • Time to reflect, plan, and create
  • Expert group and 1:1 coaching
  • A community of like-minded awesome women
  • The materials to create a life that feels too good to be true!


Or, choose the "Commuter" option and receive everything above except for accommodations at the retreat center.   This is a good option for those who do not want to share accommodations and would prefer to book their own.

Spend a long weekend working on the most important design project of all – your life.  Led by Dr. Amanda Ryan Fear, founder and principal of Swell Life Retreats, Workshops, and Coaching, and April Hansen, RN, health and wellness coach, this retreat is a weekend of learning and practicing ideas and tools 

You will leave with mindful awareness of where you are right now, new designs for balance and energy, new ways to frame problems you’ve been trying to solve for a while, insights on how to hone your decision making, and the chance to dream, design, and plan a life that feels too good to be true. You will do all this in a collaborative community of women, helping one another design a unique journey toward a well-lived, joyful life.

I'm Ready for a Life That Feels Too Good to be True!
