Be Camp II

hyatt lodge, Oakbrook, IL

November 2-3, 2019

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

Lao Tzu

Building the life you want takes time, practice and a lot of support. Be Camp may have kicked off your journey, or maybe it was one stop along the way. Either way, you may find yourself wanting more…

…more skills, more support, more energy work, more time to identify what you want and need in a safe, secure space…

…so you can make the changes you’re committed to making, in a world that doesn’t stop.

Welcome back to camp. At Be Camp II, we add to the foundation we have already built, to take a deeper dive into your energy and the things that are holding you back from making this a way of being and living in true alignment with who you are and what you want out of your life.

We help you:

• identify (and break down) the barriers that keep you from showing up the way you intend

• set your intention for living the Be life

• get back into your body and out of your head

• create an energy practice that works for you

• build a sustainable daily practice

In this intensive, two-day experience, you’ll dive right in--grounding yourself and your energy. You’ll reconnect to your vision of the life you want to live and identify barriers keeping you from living it. You’ll confront the fears that continue to hold you back, prioritize the value of putting yourself first, and learn new skills for being courageous with boundary setting, overcoming toxicity in others, and making the trade-offs necessary for sustained self-care.

You’ll spend time in solitude and self-reflection, engage in deep energy practices, challenge each other in small groups, strengthen your support network, and build a plan to live in alignment with your true self.

Make the commitment to yourself and join us for this weekend of heartfelt support.

Nourish Your Spark

As one Be Camper put it:

“This experience was strengthening and powerful—wrapped in extra layers of support. Both inner growth and peace, and with outward support from others.”

The best part of Be Camp was knowing that sharing was optional. You created a safe, non-judgmental space for all of us.
