You hop out of bed and throw open the curtains of your tree house. The rainforest canopy is just at your fingertips and you soak in the view of a rushing river below lush cacao and coffee trees.
You smell fresh morning dew and hear frogs and crickets chirping around you. You attend morning yoga before enjoying a homemade breakfast with ripe papaya and pineapple.
As you eat and laugh with your fellow travelers turned friends, you realize life hasn’t felt this rich and authentic for a while. You have completely disconnected from the bustle of work life and your to-do’s at home.
You look forward to a day full of bike riding, coaching workshops, and dips in the waterfall and Caribbean sea nearby. This location and this new sisterhood are magic.
Our transformational trip to The Dominican Republic runs from March 27 – April 1, 2019.

Our Dominican Republic PACK Retreat is a women’s-only trip this year, held in partnership with the women’s group Behold.Her (based in Washington DC)!
On this 6-day, 5-night journey, you will experience treehouse life on the Samana Peninsula, as well as arts and culture in the capital city of Santo Domingo. It’s a time to celebrate women’s empowerment, self-love, and sisterhood.
As the birthplace of merengue and bachata dancing, as well as the most biodiverse country in the Caribbean, the DR is the ideal location to bond with an incredible group of women while you reconnect to your sense of play and adventure.
Our first stop is the Tree House Village where you will get to know your fellow travelers, explore the naturaleza of this beautiful country, and dive into yoga, coaching, and Authentic Relating Games workshops (workshops that allow you to connect more deeply and authentically with those around you), as well as enjoy impromptu dance lessons to prepare for your final night out dancing in the capital of Santo Domingo.
This final night is an incredible way to wrap up your trip. You’ll stay in one of the most enchanting and historic neighborhoods in the city, experience firsthand the locals’ love for their native dances, and enjoy watching people of all ages and sizes shake it on the dance floor. One thing Megan and Cat both adore about the Dominican is the deep appreciation and acceptance for all your curves — imagine fully embracing your body image both on and off the dance floor! (And, yes, the men WILL tell you how gorgeous you are.)
The Coaching: We use coaching and Authentic Relating games to deepen your experience and relationship to your fellow travelers. This retreat is a way to press the “reset” button on your life and get supercharged for reaching your goals upon your return.
The Location: You will stay in a treehouse in a tropical rainforest on the Samana peninsula. You’re a quick jaunt from a private waterfall and a short bike ride away from a beautiful, secluded beach.
Culture: (New this Year!) Spend your last night in colonial Santo Domingo where we will experience the local culture with a night out dancing and listening to traditional Latin rhythms including bachata, salsa and merengue.
New Experiences: Zipline above the forest canopy, go cave hopping and enjoy the local catch-of-the-day cooked over a fire.
Sisterhood: There’s a common belief that, as you get older, it’s harder to make deep friendships. Be ready to throw this belief out the window! You will connect deeply with your fellow travelers around the common topics women deal with on a daily basis, while sharing your hopes and dreams along with heartfelt and joyful experiences.
Rooms at the Tree House Village are double occupancy, although single occupancy prices are available. In a double occupancy room, there is one bunk bed and one queen bed — all with mosquito nets. Each treehouse has a bathroom with a private toilet and cold shower. Hot showers are available and just a quick walk from your treehouse at the communal bathrooms. Mosquitos are not prevalent on the property, although we recommend travelers bring bug spray for off-site excursions and yoga.
We will provide a packing list, and recommend you bring a change of clothes for each day. Clothes can get damp in the tree house — especially when it rains!
We encourage you to participate 100% in what we have planned. We expect our travelers to be an unconditional “Yes!” because sometimes the experiences that make the biggest difference for us are the ones we least expect. We provide ample time in between workshops and activities for you to recharge, take a nap, or read a book on the beach. Our afternoon breaks are typically 3 – 5 hours!
When you register, we will send you a welcome packet complete with information about recommended flights, health and safety information, and a packing list.
You will lodge in the heart of La Zona Colonial during your visit. La Zona Colonial is a UNESCO World Heritage Site full of incredible history, music, dancing, and cultural attractions. We stay double occupancy at a top-rated hotel in the neighborhood. Each room has air conditioning, private bathroom, and comfortable beds.
Flights from JFK currently range from $450 – $600.
Absolutely! We are happy to work with you. We can break up the cost of the trip into up to three payments.
On this trip we have a maximum of 21 travelers.
This trip will run with a minimum of 15 travelers. Registration closes November 30, so we will announce no later than December 5 whether we have met the minimum number of travelers. This will leave you plenty of time to purchase the recommended flight at the best price. We strongly recommend you do not book your flight before the trip is confirmed.
We offer a 60-minute group connection call no more than two weeks after your trip ends, and we also offer the option to join a group coaching program with your fellow travelers. In the past, participants also scheduled reunion events and lots of connection phone calls after their return

We require that you have travel insurance that covers catastrophic incidents. Depending on the plan you choose, travel insurance can cost as little as $20. Check out and compare plans here.
Sure! Contact us for single occupancy pricing.
You may want money for souvenirs, massages, or other random expenses. We suggest withdraw the equivalent of $150 – $300 USD upon your arrival at the Santo Domingo airport. We will make sure everyone has pesos before our departure to the tree house village.
