Inventures for Women
What’s an “inventure”?
Inventures are full-day or multi-day events guided by Life Coach Patti Phillips. An inventure is a combination of the two words “inner” and “adventure”. The “adventure” piece refers to outdoor, nature-based activity. And the word “inner” refers to the inner exploration and personal discovery and growth that occurs as a result of the life coaching process. Inventures go beyond a simple get-away into the outdoors; they combine a balance of intention, reflection, and action within oneself in a natural environment. What better place to connect with your own authentic, natural self than in nature?
Explore Life Coaching’s inventures are for mid-life gals (self-defined) who value play, exploring (inside and outside), and learning from experience. In addition to having a bit of daring to push beyond your comfort zone physically and spiritually, a willingness to get in touch with nature (literally) is important. All the planning and organizing is done for you. All you have to do is show up with your sense of inventure!
The multi-day events are called Inventure Retreats. These are not spa days of relaxing and being pampered. They are designed to enhance you physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually, with the intention of personal growth and meaning. As a certified life coach, my goal is to create a safe, respectful and non-judgmental environment for your learning.
Why Women’s Only?
The idea of women’s only inventures stems from the understanding that many women find all-women’s environments more comfortable and supportive for sharing, learning, and building confidence. Explore Life Coaching offers a cooperative environment in which to learn and grow while increasing self-awareness, self-esteem, and confidence through personal challenge and positive coaching.
The vision for the Explore Life inventures is to provide female participants with the foundational skills to build enough confidence to access other adventures / challenge programs that are available to them. At Explore we truly believe that women gain many benefits from joining a women’s only group – especially those that challenge you mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. This is a unique opportunity for individuals to benefit from coaching alongside a group of like-minded women. Group members bring with them complimentary skills and knowledge and each member is able to maximize her strengths and minimize her limitations.
The benefits of group coaching include:
• You surround yourself with other women sharing similar goals and interests.
• You gain motivation from coaching and team support.
• You brainstorm solutions in a team environment.
• You celebrate your successes with a supportive team.
• You benefit from the perspective of others.
• You can access coaching service at a more affordable option to personal coaching.
• When you participate with a friend, the experience is shared beyond the day.
Inventures are offered as interest is shown. If you have a group of between 6 and 16 women who would love to experience the personal growth process while in an intentional community, let’s see what we can create. Contact me here.
