Michele Lippus
Many of us wake up to a new year with a sense of purpose and a need for change. We set resolutions and we break them almost as quickly. However, for me, 2016 was a chance to change my life for good. After some soul-searching, I realized that living abroad and working in the travel industry fulfilled me as a person. In search of a renewed purpose and focus, I allowed myself to indulge my passions and discovered the world of coaching. I have spent the last few years educating myself on different professional coaching programs and I have learnt the importance of self-reflection, self-care, balance and inspiration. I want to share my love of travel and adventure with the world, while helping others to find a deeper connection with nature and with themselves, getting back to your most authentic self. These retreats offer a sense of transition, helping you to make the shift out of your routine and into a life that has the potential to make you feel happy and balanced.
