Hooky Day Retreats

Hooky Day Retreats are full-day or multi-day get-aways, guided by certified life coach Patti Phillips, where you are encouraged to step away from the everyday expectations in your life. Step away from work expectations, family obligations, patterns of unhealthy thinking, and your to-do list. The focus is on renewal and adventure!

Hooky Day Retreats typically take place outdoors. There’s no better place to re-energize than in nature and away from the structure and confinment of city life. Activities may include hiking, biking, wandering, picture taking, canoeing, kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, and of course just exploring and playing.

Retreats go a step beyond a simple get-away into the outdoors; they combine a balance of intention, reflection, and action in a natural environment. (I am a coach, afterall).What better place to connect with your own authentic, natural self than exploring in nature?

Who are Hooky Day Retreats for?

Hooky Day Retreats are for adventurous women who value exploring (inside and outside themselves), playing, and learning from experience. In addition to having a bit of daring to push beyond your comfort zone physically and/or spiritually, a willingness to get in touch with nature is important.

If you tend to be the one who’s usually in charge of bringing people together and doing all the planning and organizing, this is especially for you. Let yourself be taken care of and free to just “be”. Play hooky from youself. All the planning and organizing is done for you. All you have to do is show up with your sense of adventure!

What’s an “inventure”?

An inventure is a combination of the two words “inner” and “adventure”. The “adventure” piece refers to exploring unknown territory with an element of excitement. And the word “inner” refers to the inner exploration and personal discovery and growth that occurs as a result of the life coaching process. So “inventure” is an exciting process of exploring within oneself for the purpose of discovering a new level of self-awareness. Exploring oneself while in nature is one of the most empowering things we can do.

Custom Hooky Day Retreats

Hooky Day Retreats can be customized for your group of friends, family, team-mates, or co-workers. If you have a group of between 4 and 10 people who would really like to experience a day of stepping away, while in an intentional community, let’s see what we can create.

One-on-one retreats are also an option if you would like to combine individual life coaching with time in nature, in order to focus on your personal development and growth.
