I'm excited to debut a keynote I've been writing (and singing!) since coming back from the Amazon Rainforest about my (and others) shift from Relentless Pursuit of MORE (sex, money, power, achievement, etc.) to Fulfilled Presence with Perri Chase and a group of incredible ladies for a weekend deep dive.

We are living in a watershed moment in human history marked by an unprecedented opportunity for women to rise into leadership with refreshing, authentic, collaborative and impassioned feminine power. In this gathering of visionary female leaders, we will facilitate the next wave of women’s empowerment, for ourselves and for our world. Participants including leaders in the fields of medicine, film, science, psychology, consciousness, technology, impact investing and cultural arts will gather to empower the divine feminine, unite our energy, create a culture of mentorship and support to share our visions, catalyze change and amplify our impact.

Drawing upon the lands and sacred traditions of Esalen, we will bring forward ancient wisdom with the latest insights from the medical, scientific and technical fields to consciously shape the society we wish to build. We will learn from each other’s wisdom across disciplines, backgrounds and generations, and share our visions and align vectors of influence to collectively impact individual, systems level and societal transformation. This workshop is for women only. All self-identifying women are welcome.

A limited number of spaces to participate in this summit are being offered to the general public, alongside a beautifully curated lineup of established leaders. We would love to learn more about your interest in this gathering and what you might like to contribute.

Note: Registration for this workshop begins with an application. To apply, please follow this link: https://goo.gl/forms/sOZ8c1j7n91IwrQJ3. Only after you have been accepted will you be able to reserve accommodations at Esalen.

Yoga & Leadership Coaching Retreat



Begin 2019 with inspiration and curiosity; to develop clarity of purpose and to establish a clear plan of action for the year ahead. The game being played is no longer sustainable for our bodies, souls, and planet - a new way of being and leading is emerging, and it is time we all use our gifts to re-design the game itself. Begin this new year surrounded by community and natural beauty, as we align our minds, hearts, and bodies, and embody a new style of sustainable leadership. 

“We are all here to contribute our gifts toward something greater than ourselves, and will never be content unless we are.” - Charles Eisenstein

In this New Year Yoga & Leadership Coaching Retreat we will harness the power of ancient rituals and wisdom, cognitive and behavioral science, and spiritual psychology to:

- cultivate your own authentic style of leadership

- rest in the serenity and silence of the surrounding coastal redwood forest

- strengthen our bodies and minds through yoga and meditation

- develop skills to listen and prioritize our inner wisdom and purpose through earth-based wisdom and somatic practices

- learn tools to move through resistance and fear

- increase confidence, agency, and action

- design spiritual practices that sustain creativity and vitality (and avoid burnout)

- understand the neuroscience of mindfulness and goal setting

- connect with a community of inspired and like-minded individuals who share a desire to show up powerfully in the world

Bristol Baughan (Inner Astronauts) and Rebecca Rogers (Rebecca Rogers Yoga) offer this annual New Year Yoga & Leadership Coaching retreat to harness your unique gifts in service to the world, define your brand of leadership, get into your body through yoga, and build a spiritual practice that will keep you focused, playful, and resilient.

Retreat testimonials

"A beginning-of-year retreat is much more impactful than just setting a new year's resolution. This retreat combines the centering aspects of yoga with coaching to help you reflect on the prior year, and set tangible goals for the upcoming year. I loved the concept of the '3-Foot Toss' - setting goals you can easily achieve because that could be the start of something much greater." - Jeremie, CA

"Once you go to Rebecca & Bristol's retreats, you will want to go over and over again!" - Emily, MA

The game as it has been played is no longer sustainable on our bodies, souls, and planet. Change is happening at a pace never before seen in all of human history and conscious embodied leaders are being called into service around the world. Leadership is now about discovering who you truly are, why you are here, and taking action from your inherent wholeness. Join myself and Hatha Yoga Teacher and Owner of Ocean and Yoga Retreats, Jana Toepfer, for a week of wholistic coaching for mind, body, and spirit. Together we will discover your unique definition of leadership and cultivate proven skills for how to embody it with courage and play. In an intimate, beautiful setting, we will share our favorite transformative practices from ancient and modern traditions of Spiritual Psychology, Meditation, Tantra, Yoga, and Surfing.
