The 2017 Leap Retreat

Are you feeling called to create a life that is wilder and more beautiful? 

Are you ready to live by following your heart, not the rules laid down by others? 

Do you long for community to support you in transforming your life? 

People have turned to nature, stillness, and deep communion to create such inner stability, for thousands of years. 

That's what Martha Beck and Master Coach Boyd Varty will be doing at our yearly LEAP retreat, in the gorgeous Rocky Mountains, on May 4-7, 2017.  

A love letter from Martha. . . . 

Life has always been uncertain . . .

 . . . but these days it seems more unsettled and alarming than ever. Ecologically, politically, and culturally, we are facing unprecedented, unpredictable challenges. In such times, it’s especially crucial that we find a firm foundation on which to build our lives, and a wellspring of inner harmony that can give us peace in the midst of chaos. 

For thousands of years, people have turned to nature, stillness, and deep communion to create such inner stability. That’s what I’ll be doing at our yearly LEAP retreat, in the gorgeous Rocky Mountains, on May 4 – 7, 2017. Joining me is Master Coach Boyd Varty, who also collaborates with me on our yearly STAR seminars in the African wilderness. 

The setting—Utah’s Deer Valley Resort—could not be more gorgeous. The LEAP participants (judging by last year’s attendees) could not be more courageous and compassionate. And Boyd and I could not be more delighted to offer you this life-changing leap forward toward your own best destiny. Hope to see you there. 


If you attend this year's retreat . . . 

You'll be guided—through live coaching, structured teaching exercises, and your own interaction with nature—to achieve a quantum leap forward in your personal development. 

You’ll identify and release negative patterns that impede your happiness and progress. 

You'll explore aspects of your consciousness in which there is very little suffering, and enormous loving power. 

You’ll learn to balance yourself through alignment with your own true nature, and to regain that balance quickly if you lose it. 

Finally, you’ll see how you can create an outward manifestation of your best inward self, forming a community (and perhaps a world) that reflects the quiet confidence and steadiness you are meant to embody.

You'll learn what Martha has been learning and personally experiencing on her own spiritual journey. And how you can apply that to your life.

You’ll be taken on wildly entertaining adventures by master storyteller Boyd as he recounts true stories of nature and animals from his life in South Africa.

You'll explore and integrate, at a deep level, practices that support your Libration, Equanimity, Alignment, and Power - a quantum LEAP forward. 

You’ll encounter nature through guided exercises to help you make small LEAPS throughout the retreat - adding up to quantum LEAPs in your life and your work in the world. 

You’ll witness transformative coaching (and possibly be coached yourself!) as Boyd and Martha work with your fellow Wayfinders to experience deep and lasting positive change.

You’ll feel the magic that arises when Wayfinders gather.

Breakfast is provided each day and lunch is provided Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Dinner is on your own and it will be the perfect time for integration after each day’s experience. For dining options, you can eat at the hotel, or catch a short shuttle ride into downtown Park City for a wide array of dining options. 

Important Note: Please be sure to bring outdoor clothes; shoes appropriate for walking; and a camera. Your camera doesn’t need to be fancy, just digital. Your smartphone is perfect!
