Whether the word makes you smile or cringe (or both), chances are that you have a complex story surrounding money.

But, what if you could identify and release the parts of that story that keep you stuck?

Imagine finally having a value based road map to your financial future

Envision your clarity and peace of mind knowing that you are consciously tackling your mindset blocks and actively moving towards your financial goals

Sounds pretty swell, doesn't it?

It's ALL possible...

Join Holistic Wellness Educator Susan Shehata and Financial Advisor Molly Root for this exploration of your money story.


In this day long retreat, we will explore how early childhood experiences shape our brains and create our subconscious operating system---Our Core Story---and how that directs every aspect of our lives. We will build upon this foundation by discovering the specific money beliefs that continue to restrict us. We will explore the practical side of money and how to turn your money story into an actionable plan to reach your goals.

Your Money Story is comprised of a set of beliefs that began forming long before you had any conscious understanding of finances.


This story might include inherited beliefs, circumstances absorbed about your family's economic situation from early childhood, as well as any direct or indirect messages you've received about money, over the years.

Combine all of that with your hand- on experiences and you have a whole soup of beliefs that comprise your money story.

Some of your story is conscious, like when you recognize if you lean towards being a saver or spender.

But most of the story is subconscious and that's the part that has the greatest potential to impact you. That's why it's not enough for to just make a budget, save and invest.

All of those skills are important and relevant. But, until you also dismantle any of the mindset blocks that keep you stuck, you will run into challenges every step of the way---whether it's managing the logistics, your relationship to saving and spending or creating creating income flow.

This Day Retreat is designed to meet you where you are.


We created this event because we see a gap in the way our culture manages money. Many teachings on money either focus solely on the logistics or lean too far into esoteric philosophy.


This retreat merges two important aspects of money management by tackling both the psychological blocks and the strategic nuts and bolts.

Welcome & Opening Reflections


What's Your Story?

with Susan Shehata

We each have a story. Within this story lives our limiting Core Beliefs.

You are the prime force behind your success and well-being. Therefore, it is imperative that you understand how your SPECIFIC  core beliefs are ruling your life and how they can keep you stuck.

In this workshop, you will begin to hone in on the one subconscious belief that creates your reality.

I will detail how your early childhood experiences create imprints, on your brain and life, that form limiting beliefs.

We will discuss the biological and psychological mechanisms that make these beliefs stick, how these beliefs create your daily reality, and how to unwind these sub-conscious patterns.


Money Values

with Molly Root

Your sub-conscious beliefs effect every aspect of your life, including money. We will take what you have learned in the What's Your Story workshop and begin to connect it to your money story. Your story drives your behavior around how you think, use, spend and save your money.
The intersection of where your core beliefs, values and money come together is where we will begin to start framing or re-framing your money story.


The retreat includes an Organic, Vegetarian, Gluten Free Lunch


Mind Over Money

with Susan Shehata


What is your first memory associated with money?

In this experiential workshop, we will answer this question and more to identify the specific limiting beliefs that are impacting your relationship with money.

Building on our morning workshops, we will identify the parallels of our money story with our core story, so that we can continue to unwind these unconscious blocks and align consciously with our goals and values.

We will explore our money story through writing, conversation and visualization.


Money in Action

with Molly Root


We will turn your money story into an actionable plan to work towards your goals in a conscious and connected way.
We will begin to explore the practical side of your money. We will go through an exercise to identify your needs, wants and wishes. Have open dialogue and answer any questions and pose questions to help dig a little deeper.
We will give you actionable steps that will take you beyond our time together so it can be carried beyond our time together.
