It all started when…
After our first in-person retreat in 2016, we knew that connecting with people in person was our very favorite part of Birth Becomes Her. We are SO excited to offer our next weekend retreat. We’ll spend Saturday learning and growing together in one of the most innovative and unique locations in Denver, Colorado…and then Sunday we’ll connect in small, intimate groups as we further explore our unique passions/interests!
We want this to be a weekend full of community and support for new and former Essence of Birth students. We also want to invite any other members of the Birth Becomes Her Community. We value connection, support and collaboration.
The first 10 Essence of Birth Student Signups 2019 will receive FREE admission to the retreat. Once the free option is gone, they are sold out!
Current and former Essence Students will be able to purchase the in-person retreat for $450.
Anyone else can join us for $750!
Where and When
July 18th and 19th, 2020 - in Denver, CO
Join us for a day of learning on July 18th at the Source in RINO
On July 19th, we will convene for an optional (and amazing) morning brunch as well as activities in and around Denver
The cost above DOES NOT include accommodations or food (outside of breakfast/lunch on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday)
These tickets are non-refundable. No exceptions. You may transfer or sell your ticket to another photographer if you are no longer able to attend
We want this to be a weekend full of connection. Unlike other workshops where speakers are brought in to present on topics of their choosing, this retreat will largely be led collaboratively by the people who attend. In the months, weeks, and days leading up to the retreat, we will be gathering information from each of our attendees. We believe that the best learning happens in safe settings in which ALL participants are encouraged to bring their unique stories and voices to the table!
On Saturday, Jenn and Monet will speak on how they’ve built their passion about birth into thriving businesses, and then we’ll encourage each of you to explore and share with us. We’ll have several round-table discussions that will be tailored to the unique community we’re building, offering each of you the opportunity to focus on the issues that speak to you most.
We’ll eat together for both breakfast and lunch. And we’ll offer everyone the opportunity to ask questions about what they learned in the Essence of Birth Course.
In the evening, we’ll break for dinner (there are several AMAZING restaurants in the Source…as well as a STUNNING rooftop pool!) You’ll get to relax and socialize with new and old friends.
On Sunday morning, we will meet at Charley Co - a women's coworking community in the Source. You will be BLOWN away by what they’ve done in this creative space - there’s a boob bathroom, incredible murals/artwork, and kick-ass inspiration everywhere you look! We’ll have several meet-ups planned for the afternoon that you’re welcome to attend - from photographing street art in RINO to taking a hike in the mountains!
Where to Stay?
The retreat will be held at the Source Hotel on July 18th, 2020. We will block off a number of rooms for the retreat that you can purchase in the weeks to come. (The rate for the rooms is around 220 dollars a night)
The Source Hotel is adjacent to two market halls that are full of boutiques, bars, restaurants, art galleries, and more. It’s one of the most beautiful and unique spaces in Denver…and we highly encourage you to take advantage of our room block so that you can easily socialize with other retreat attendees (and enjoy a beautiful rooftop pool!)
If you don’t want to stay in a hotel, there are dozens of Air BNBs in close proximity to the retreat.
We are trying to make travel and accommodations easy and affordable. Sharing a room with another retreat attendee is a great way to cut down on costs! We will be starting a private FB group for this retreat, which will hopefully allow you to easily find a friend to share a room with. Please reach out to us for more info if needed.
How to Get There?
If flying, you should fly into the Denver International Airport (DIA) on Friday (or earlier in the week if you want to make a bigger trip out of this experience). You can take the lightrail to Union Station from DIA, where a complementary shuttle from the Source Hotel can take you to your room. If you are renting an AirBnB or staying elsewhere, you can rent a car or Lyft from the airport. Please be advised that there is a $20 fee for parking all day at the Source, so a Lyft or carpooling will be the most affordable option!
What to Bring
Your camera, your laptop or a notebook, fun and comfortable clothes, a bathing suit. Your smile :)
We will be providing breakfast and lunch on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday. Gluten-free and vegan options will be available. You will need to take care of your other meals, but there are ample dining options located within the Source, as well as some of Denver’s best restaurants located nearby!
