Nature has been my space to grow, heal, find resilience, and step into leadership.
After experiencing a tremendous amount of trauma and PTSD in 2013, the ocean and mountains became my space to reflect and guide me on my journey.
Being in nature gave me a perspective shift.
I came to realize that my challenges, setbacks, and traumas did not define me.
What I found is the opportunity to learn + grow from my experiences.
Hiking trails and paddling the ocean provided space for me to find the best version of me – as a mom, woman, business owner, friend, and member of the community.
Stepping out of my comfort zone pushed me to find what I was capable of.
I never would be who I am today without these experiential journeys.
And I want the same for you.
Welcome to our co-ed life-changing journey in Alaska.
“Through Sara’s guidance, positive energy, and vulnerability, I found more kindness and love in and for my own story. I would recommend a retreat to anyone seeking an adventure into nature and opening the door to healing and hope.”
– Liane Gerstenkorn
JOIN US ON THIS AWE-FILLED RETREAT
We live during a time when it may feel difficult to detach from our daily life. Sure, we all have responsibilities + the need to take care of others. I get it!
But we all need to be taken care of, too. And that, my friend, means taking time away for YOU.
Join us on a life-changing retreat in Whittier, Alaska! This is a journey of self-discovery and adventure. So much of our lives are filled with responsibilities and distractions. Taking time away to detach from the world and reconnect to nature will feed your body, mind, soul, and spirit.
This trip is designed for people who are ready to learn, grow, adventure, foster new friendships, and cultivate lasting memories. Together we will adventure, meditate + journal in nature, and deep-dive into self through facilitated group coaching.
This uniquely choreographed journey through Prince William Sound, Alaska will be lead by Sara in collaboration with Breakwater Expeditions. Breakwater has a team of highly skilled outdoor professionals with years of experience in developing and leading adventure intentional programs and expeditions for teens, adults, and families.
You will leave this 7-day experience with your cup replenished and those empty spaces within you full of hope, love, and support.

I’M HERE TO SUPPORT + GUIDE YOU
My way of healing + growing into who I am today was unconventional. Yet, it worked. We all deserve a sacred space to deepen our relationship with self. To feel connected with others + know that we are not alone. There are no other retreats out there like this.
If you are taking your first step on your personal development and healing journey, or are well on your way + simply would like to continue your practice of leaning into a more joy filled life, this is a space created for you.
Community + connections are essential for change. These retreats are designed to meet you where you are and provide support regardless of the switchbacks you’re navigating in your life.
This program is designed to be a long term compass on your healing journey. I will walk you through steps to use resilience, leadership, nature, and adventure in your journey, and I will share my own personal methods for embracing forgiveness. We all deserve space to find truth, inspiration, hope, and healing.
Everything here helped me get to where I am today. I want the same for you.
“I was blessed to have gone on one of Sara’s retreats in December of 2020 – it was magical. My heart was cracked wide open, Love, Worthiness and Compassion for self was seen within me for the first time. Being held by another touched the core of my soul – it was the most Peace, Unconditional love of each other and laughter I have ever experienced in life. Take that step into the Grand Canyon with Sara and “Choose you.”
– Rhonda Kroger

Q: How long is the program?
A: This is a condensed coaching program + a multi-day Alaska Healing Retreat in Prince William Sound. We will have 6-7 virtual coaching sessions where we will deep-dive into a new topic each time. The intent is for you to be ready in every way to head into the retreat + heal. Likewise, we keep our coaching sessions going after the retreat so you can implement what you have learned into your everyday life. Need to miss a call? No problem! They will be recorded + shared with you.
Q: How fit do I need to be?
A: If you are concerned about or questioning your physical ability, please reach out to me + let’s have a conversation. Kayaking Prince William Sound is as much about mindset + heart space as it is about physical ability.
Q: What if I am afraid?
A: I have guided many people through fears, including clients afraid of heights + a blind para-athlete (twice) through the Grand Canyon. Prior to the trip, we will talk through how best to accommodate + face your fears or challenges. My co-leads + I have got you.
Q: How is this different from another guided group?
A: Within the retreats I lead, it’s far beyond simply hiking or kayaking. You will be guided not only into nature but also within yourself. Being on this retreat becomes an experiential journey of self-discovery, growth + healing.
Q: Is this really worth the money?
A: If you’re ready to invest in yourself, let go of limiting beliefs, transcend your story, and believe in yourself…absolutely! Anyone who has lived through difficult life experiences knows how important it is to work on ourselves daily. I still work on myself, too. I value your time + investment as much as you do.
Q: How much time will I get with you?
A: You’ll get access to me throughout our coaching calls together and through Voxer, an instant messaging app. In addition, I am with you every step of the way on our Alaska retreat. Not only that, but my clients become family to me. Pretty much, we are connected for life.
