ZN, Social Impact Intrapreneur

I've achieved nothing short of miracles with Rachael, who helped me regain confidence after a challenging career year. She held space for my mission and her emotional based coaching helps me explore and redefine old ways of thinking. As a result I've launched a new project and obtained buy in from two executives and $100k investment.


Lauren, Professional Organizer

Rachael helped me learn the power of creating my own vision which helped me hone in on what I desire more of in my life. I also moved through my biggest blocks that were keeping me from living my dream. Now I run my own business helping others organize their lives!


Dan, Make School

I've learned that overachieving can be nourishing from Rachael's program. I'm blown away what I'm learning about myself.

A: Exact address: 1001 Pine Street, San Francisco CA (map) and doors open 30 minutes before for coffee and tea at 9:30am Saturday. Cross Street: Taylor and Jones Street. We are in Rachael's apartment building which has a great space for community events in the main library!

Q: Can I attend remotely?
A: At this time the retreat is only LIVE and in person to get the most out of this event.

Q: I'm from out of town, where can I stay? 

A: We recommend walkable Viceroy's Emblem Hotel at 562 Sutter Street nearby, or any airbnb's in the area.

Q. What about parking or public transport?

A: If driving, there is 2h free street parking (enforced) or these nearby garages:

1234 Pine Street (entrance on Pine between Leavenworth and Hyde) - $5/hour + $2 per add'l hour, $30 flat 

Stockton St Garage: $5/hour 9-6pm or $38 flat rate

Q: What are the hours of the retreat?

A: Saturday 10am-4:30pm followed by a no-host happy hour 5-6pm in Nob Hill (1 block away)

Q: Do I need to attend the entire day? 

A: Yes, attending full day Saturday is highly recommended and preferred. This is about honoring who you are becoming, and committing to being fully available for yourself to join our practices for this day. Think of this as an investment in YOU - a huge act of self-love and self-care to show up for the full day. You're going to feel full of vitality and life but attending all day and the evening social event is part of that. There are limited seats and being here matters as we are building on what we learn and creating deep connection starting Saturday morning. If you can't make the entire day, consider signing up for an Amplify Your Impact 30 minute breakthrough session with me instead.

Q: Will meals be included at the retreat?

A: No, but there will be scheduled 1 hour lunch break and an afternoon break. Please eat something before you arrive Saturday at 10am. For Saturday lunch we will be going out in small groups of 3 or 4 nearby.  Please bring $25 CASH (approx $25 per meal) or be prepared to Venmo accordingly so you can pay for your meal easily when in a group - avoid the credit card hassle! We will be finished by dinnertime Saturday and you are encouraged to go out in small groups for dinner if you don't have plans.

Q: Will there be breaks and/or snacks?

A: Yes. After all, we are pausing so breaks matter. We will have breaks for lunch and 1 or 2 others per day. Please bring any snacks to get you through until meal times and a water bottle. We will have water but having a container that doesn't spill (waterbottle) works great. We will have coffee and tea in the AMs and during breaks available.

Q: Can I bring a friend?

A: Yes-- in fact, we highly recommend it! Why not support someone else who could benefit from a day dedicated to learning and growing in service to you rising to your next level of leadership that will be fun, inclusive, and restorative.

Q: What if I'm a current client can I attend?

A: Yes, and you can also volunteer to help lead. Reach out to Rachael if you are interested.

Q: What should I wear?

A: We recommend you dress business casual and comfortably. And, bring layers!! It may get warm with many people and we can’t always modulate the temperature as well as we’d like to…depending on the weather we may also be outside a couple times, so bring a rain jacket/umbrella just in case it's rainy and/or cold.
