The number of Aha moments you will go through as you fill out this booklet will make you question how you lived a life without this amount of clarity. Hugely recommend it and highly advise against rolling into a new year without some deep and honest reflection on what matters in your life and what things you have been procrastinating on or, are completely unaware of.December 13, 2022
A powerful practice
Elysium has a really strong perspective on what a self-retreat should be and that comes through in the experience. I’m about to do it for the 3rd year in a row and can’t imagine starting my year without it.December 12, 2022
I really enjoyed my Elysium retreat! It was a great way to disconnect and reflect on where I have been and where I want to go. I think it was particularly useful for me because as a new parent time is very limited so being able to do this on my own time at my own pace was really valuable. I have always found keeping a journal to be a real pain even though I know it’s a good idea. Because this combined journaling with something enjoyable (time away from home in a beautiful spot) it made the process more enjoyable so I could get more out of the process.December 12, 2022
I did the Elysium retreat at the end of 2021, when I had already made some pretty big decisions for 2022 involving leaving my job, going back to school, and moving countries. The prompts and reflection helped me get focused and aligned on what I wanted out of the next year and beyond, and it was so helpful to keep coming back to the book to remember what it is that I‘m working toward when things inevitably get tough and perspective gets skewed. I will do this again and again.December 9, 2022
Well Worth It!
The Elysium retreat was one of the highlights of my year. For most of us there isn’t really a natural opportunity to reflect back on the previous year in a structured and thorough way. Elysium provides that. It’s also really fun – we spend so much time planning future experiences and taking photos and not enough time reflecting back on past accomplishments, failures, memories and key moments. Found some real gems that I had forgotten about. Helps your reprioritize what’s important. Elysium also provided the structure for me to have some breakthroughs of figuring out what I want to do in the next 1, 3, 5 years.
Highly recommend – invest in yourself.December 8, 2022
An incredible resource you'll continue to revisit
I’m so grateful I stayed at Elysium Retreat for a few days at the beginning of February 2020. This was the start of a month-long leave of absence from work. I was coming off a stressful period and was extremely burned out, and frankly, feeling big ‘what am I doing with my life’ energy. It was tough to unplug fully for a few days and just be with my thoughts, but the guided workbooks were such an amazing tool to help me get those thoughts onto paper and leave feeling excited for the months ahead. I’ve since revisited my notebooks every 6-8 months to look back at the progress and recalibrate. Loved this experience and will continue to revisit the books in the future!August 27, 2021
Spending 48 hours disconnected from the outside world really allowed me to focus on myself. (something I rarely book time to do). The cottage was the perfect setting!
I spent my retreat reflecting on the past and learning how to set manageable goals with my career and personal life, which align to my values.
The thought of disconnecting from work and social media from an extended period was a bit scary at first, but once I settled into my groove, I found I was able to really focus and enjoy the experience. Powerful is the best adjective to describe my retreat.
The follow up call post retreat was really helpful to unravel all the planning and work I had done in the workbook.
I now take time each week to review and modify my short and long term goals.
Would 100% suggest this retreat to just about anybody! Extremely valuable.June 28, 2021
Really great experience
The Elysium workbook is some of the best money you can spend! It is well structured and really helps you think through all aspects of your life to plan them with intentionality.May 25, 2021
Great way to start the year!
I bought two Elysium Retreat packages for myself and my husband. After having a baby, returning to work and living out the most challenging year that was 2020, I needed something to keep me grounded, appreciate what I already had and guide me to the next phase in my life. The Elyisum Retreat gave me permission to stop, reflect and take time to look inwards. I am already quite self aware but this brought me to a whole me level. I am excited to bring this to my team at work at the end of this year!March 23, 2021
Way more than I expected!
I recommended this to anyone who is feeling lost or unclear of their path in life. A whole weekend alone to think and speculate and dig deep really gave me a lot of clarity that I needed.
The the way the material is organised is really thought out. The questions are simple and forthcoming. There are challenges and joys in this experience and its all worth it. Not to mention getting some alone time with my thoughts and an opportunity to write them down was a joy. Most of the time I’m so busy with responsibilities. This forces you to cut the noise and refocuses your priorities.
I don’t have all my answers in front of me, but boy do I feel lighter, happier and energized after this experience. Definitely up for round 2 next year.February 26, 2021
