We're looking forward to welcoming you to Thrive! Würzburg

We're looking forward to welcoming you to Thrive! Würzburg

Small and vibrant. That's something you could say about Würzburg.  A city risen from the ashes. A place with one of the highest number of sun hours annually in the whole country. The home of some terrific wine.

And now the place where you can discover your next significant steps into the future.

The journey to the next greater vision of you can feel like a lonely one. Not any more.

Sometimes what makes the most sense is not to charge ahead, but to STOP. Stop for a moment and pay attention to yourself and the inner voice telling you now is the time.

Join us in Würzburg and take a time of retreat and focus for yourself. Step into a circle of transformative power, deep listening and generosity. We'd love to have you with us!  

IT IS TIME TO DO WHAT ONLY YOU CAN DO: The world needs you!
What do YOU need to trust the wind beneath your wings?

What are the elements of THRIVE?

What we'll be doing together...

Here's how we're going to Thrive!...  On the afternoon of Friday September 22 we will focus on coming together as a team and then harvesting the gold from our personal stories. From the keys we find in our own lived experience, we will shape a personal powerful question. 

We come back together in the morning of Saturday September 23 to bring our questions to the Flow Game and receive wisdom council. This encourages each of us to take the next elegant step.

Why is this taking place over two days?

In spending an evening together, we will get to know each other more deeply and let our stories breathe. We also let our questions cook over night. This is, in fact, a very important step in our work together. When we take the time to let our questions percolate, the mind and the heart start working in tandem to open new doorways.

And then?

From this personal and collective journey together we gain a network of support  to continue with wise action forwardFor more details on what the event entails, click here

Your story holds the key

In sharing our stories of what matters most to us, we will find the elements to help each other craft a powerful question.


A question is a doorway

A question opens the door to a new perspective. You will receive the input of others in shaping a question that will open the door to your future.

Together we are wiser

We will take our questions into the Flow Game, a powerful and playful way to support each person to find their next potent steps into the future they dream of.

Here's what you need to know...
