The Live BIG® Life Retreat helps you develop the mindset and strategies to live the life you want and love it.

Over the last 10 years of helping leaders be awesome at work, I’m constantly asked if we could run something that was focused on life. Something partners, friends or family could also attend. Something where we could work on growing health, happiness and achievement for ourselves, our families or our business ventures. So we created the Live BIG Life Retreat.

This event is for anyone who believes they are capable of more than they are realising. That you can squeeze more joy, fulfilment and achievement out of life. And be the ‘you’ you were born to be.

The retreat will empower you to find purpose, set goals, create strategy, develop mindset, clear limiting beliefs, shift blockages, and build the health, wellbeing and energy you need to experience the life you want.

It’s 3 days on the beautiful Gower coastline in South Wales. With incredible like-minded supportive people. To help you realise your potential for happiness and success. To free you to Live BIG.

We love this event and absolutely know how powerful it is for people. Everyone who has taken part in the past has had a fantastic experience and brilliant results. So, we are really happy to offer a full refund if you don’t totally love it and aren’t 100% satisfied.

 

MAKE 2018 THE YEAR YOU TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE

What’s your most important goal for 2018? Have you taken the first steps towards it yet?

Let me phrase that another way:

How do you want your life to look at the end of the year? Or in three or even ten years’ time?

Live BIG® is our obsessive belief that you have a tonne of capability just waiting to be let out. That you can be happier. Get more stuff done. And be the you, you were born to be. Not just that – but you can empower others to do the same.

But… As human beings we get in our own way, we make life harder for ourselves than it needs to be, we deny ourselves the happiness and achievement we are capable of:

  • Are there things you worry about that turn out not to happen?
  • Are there things you want or challenges you have, you don’t have plans for?  Or fail to take action on?
  • Are there things you believe, or stories you tell yourself that hold you back?

Our ability to Live BIG® is driven by the quality of our mindset and our strategies. It’s a way of thinking and being that stops us playing small. So across the retreat we will explore 6 Powers that together help you develop the way you think, feel and act. Simple skills to be great, do more, love work, love life and realise your full potential.

This is the Live BIG Life Retreat – a weekend of powerful teaching, incredible nature and inspiring company.

‘The best investment you will ever make is in yourself’

– Warren Buffett, billionaire investor and philanthropist.

When we invest in ourselves it fuels our future and our happiness. It opens up new possibilities that might have never been available to us otherwise. It changes our potential. So if this feels like it could be for you, I encourage you to dive deeply into the videos and materials here (or contact us for more) to build your confidence this is right for you, then… go for it. It would be amazing to see you and support you in Wales this summer.

Money is a healthy reality of our lives. But we don’t like money to get in the way of people attending this event who really want to and are really ready – but have financial circumstances that make it significantly challenging. So if that’s you, let us know and we will do what we can to help.

We also love it when couples or family come together, but know this can sometimes be a burden on a household income – so again we can help out a little if you’re booking for two.

  • Learning time set in beautiful natural surroundings.
  • Evening beach fire, to burn limiting beliefs.

Mindfulness

  • Yoga class to give us the experience of connecting to our body, quietening our mind and taming our thoughts.
  • Breathing and body scan meditations to quiet the mind and reach deeper states of relaxation.

  • Nutritious and beautiful vegan lunches with a brief talk on the benefits and preparation.

Approach

Across the retreat multiple small experiences that stretch us, time in nature, and activity to quieten our mind – sets us ‘bubbling’… So that when we explore our most effective strategies, work on our mindset and start to build our plans – our insights and shifts are deeper, more real and more profound.

The Live BIG Life Retreat is built from the ‘self’ part of the Live BIG leadership practice. To understand the work more fully, explore the content on the Live BIG website.

The Live Big Life Retreat will be held in an inspirational setting on the stunning Gower Peninsula, which is just past Swansea in South Wales. Easily accessible by major road (the M4) and main line rail links.

The Gower was the first area of outstanding natural beauty designated in the UK back in 1965, and it’s a special place. Depending on the group size we will be in Langland bay (just next to the Mumbles) or a little way into the Gower.
