Only two spots left for this retreat.

Women Only.

Combine a 4-day intensive personal/spiritual growth semi-private retreat with a Hawaiian vacation where you receive on-going in-vivo Life Coaching. Our condo is right on the beach.

Arrive Thursday, July 13. Relax July 14, recover from the travel and get acquainted with other participants and tour the island. The retreat runs Saturday July 15-Tuesday July 18.

We’ll vacation after that. If you choose to hang out with me, you’ll get on-the-go life coaching, but only if you want it. You may choose your own vacation itinerary or join our group activities. There are several beaches on Maui. I’d like to take a helicopter ride, snorkel, visit the waterfalls and island hop over to Kaui, the garden island. I hope to swim with the dolphins. What would you like to do?

You don’t have to stay the whole ten days if you don’t want to, but you’ll need to pay the same fee regardless.

This retreat is perfect for highly sensitive people. But you don’t have to be a highly sensitive person to attend. Adult women only.

Does this sound like you?

You are ready to answer your Spirit’s call to unfold even more of your full potential and express your Authentic Self in the world. You’re eager for deep emotional-spiritual healing so you can live the life of your dreams, not the dreams someone else wanted for you.

You want to transform self-defeating patterns with relationships, money, intimacy, health, life-work balance and/or career.

You long to experience healthy relationships where people resolve conflicts in caring ways that generate win-win solutions.

You want to be with like-minded people who support you on your Hero’s Journey of excavating Your Authentic Self.

You realize that you must change your inner world if you want your outer world to change.

Retreat Activities:  You’ll complete a questionnaire one month before the retreat, telling me exactly what you want to create in your life and what’s standing in your way. I’ll design processes to meet your specific needs. The agenda remains organic and fluid throughout the retreat so that results are optimized for each participant.


There will be several types of learning formats:

  • One-on-one facilitation while the group learns vicariously.
  • Several people who have similar issues will participate in a group process.
  • Experiential activities and didactic conversations.
  • We will take one long break during the afternoon to play on the beach, meditate, nap or deepen friendships. Evenings after 5:30pm are yours to watch the sunset, socialize, walk the beach, or listen to music while enjoying a delicious dinner. Or just relax on by yourself. It’s your choice.

“By working with Benita Esposito over the last eight years in one-on-one and in group settings, I have deeply explored the outer reaches of consciousness, and the inner depths of my body-mind-soul-emotions. Via strong empathetic connections, Benita has intuitively guided me through issues that others in the mainstream medical professions told me I would be living with for the rest of my life.  Benita coaches me to create healthy relationships in personal, business and in community. I benefit most from group retreats where there is a mixture of people’s energies. The extended time to work on things is crucial to digging deep and making major changes, while the beautiful Nature settings give me a soothing arena I need to process the experiences. Jump at the chance to be involved in a retreat as often as possible – that is my recommendation. If a retreat doesn’t suit you, choose another format. It is an honor and a privilege to have Benita as the co-creator of my true destiny and journey towards my Authentic Self.”  ~ L.S. Florida

“As we closed the retreat on Monday, I felt, probably for the first time in my life, a deep grief that I would be leaving a group of people, and a deep desire to continue to be a part of your lives, and have each of you be a part of mine. This is one of the gifts you have all given me this past weekend. My path in life has been a solitary one, and I mostly liked it that way, at the same time feeling lonely, isolated, and different. I never before realized how much I wanted to share myself with others, and to share their path and their experience.” ~ E.W., President, Software Development Consulting, Virginia

“My cheek muscles have been sore since I returned from the retreat. Could this be from smiling so much that it hurts? I have to say, when I left the retreat I had some good gut wrenching cries of loss–and now…. wow, I do believe that joy is here. I am walking around singing, laughing, and just having fun with myself. I feel I want to spread some of this around.”  ~ M.F., Technical Trainer, Colorado

“I just wanted to thank you again for hosting such a wonderful and inspirational weekend retreat. I continued to ride the wave all the way home! As I reflected on one of the weekend’s more intense moments I found myself crying tears of despair, but they were instantaneously transformed into tears of joy as I instinctively felt comfort from the Divine. Thanks to your guidance, I now know how to access the healing, the answers, the wisdom and the love.” ~ B.M., Computer Programmer, Tennessee

“I have never really even entertained the idea of doing a retreat. Scared me to death. This time I had some help coaxing me to go, but I knew I would do it anyway. Once my spirit decided it was the place to be, then it was so powerful that I really had to surrender. So far it’s been one life changing experience after another. Right now I am flying. Can you tell? I mean high! I feel like running up this path barefooted if I have to. What an amazing, amazing life I have!” ~ V.S., Psychotherapist, Atlanta
