Joyful Journeys Hot Springs Resort

We’ll focus on:

  1. What you most love about what you do
  2. Who most needs your services and how to best reach them
  3. What action steps you can take right now to build the business

Intuitive Business Workshops:

We’ll use a beautiful and peaceful retreat at Joyful Journey Hot Springs as the foundation to take you through a empowering series of business workshops designed to get you in touch with your inner guidance.

Movement to Support Your Work:

But, you won’t just be sitting around for four days.  In addition to gentle morning stretches to get you ready for the day, we’ll do conscious, gentle movement throughout the retreat to help you integrate what you’re learning.

We will also support you throughout the retreat with delicious meals and meditations. You will leave feeling grounded and inspired by the work you love to do.

What It Is:

  • Joyful Journeys Conference CenterA four-day retreat at Joyful Journeys Hot Springs Resort in southern Colorado, including daily hot springs passes, and time to soak.
  • Workshops with visionary business coach Diane Whiddon, including her signature Get Clear program designed to teach you how to break through what’s holding you back, and create your personal plan to build the best business for you.
  • Conscious, gentle, beginner yoga and dance-based movement to support your new growth and integrate the changes you’re creating for your business. (not required, but whole-heartedly encouraged!)
  • Mindfulness workshops and nourishing meals from transformative healer and therapeutic chef, Lily Calfee.
  • A workbook full of actionable steps to carry your new-found clarity and passion into your future.
  • Two months of hands-on support leading up to the retreat, including online spa days.

Where it is:

The retreat will be held at the quaint and beautiful Joyful Journeys Hot Springs, located 32 miles south of Salida and 50 miles north of Alamosa in the San Luis Valley of south central Colorado on Highway 17, one mile south of the Highway 285 junction.

At an elevation of 7700 feet on the valley floor, we expect cool, sunny days and colder evenings (great for soaking in the hot springs!), and spectacular views of the 14,000 foot peaks of the Sangre De Cristo mountains to the east.

How to Get There: The resort is a scenic, three-hour drive from Denver and the Denver International Airport.  Or, you can fly into the San Luis Valley Regional Airport and drive an hour north to the resort.

Also nearby: the resort is about an hour away from The Great Sand Dunes National Park, which has great camping and sights for an extended vacation.

What Is Get Clear?

Diane Whiddon building websites with glee.

Since 2006, I’ve been building websites for small business owners.  In that time, I’ve learned that most businesses struggle–not because they don’t have the right Twitter strategy or business card design, but because the entrepreneur is stopping herself with fear, doubt and/or insecurity.

These can look like doubts around being ‘expert’ enough, fear of being seen or judged, problems with receiving money and praise, and a host of other doubts.  It’s rarely as simple as just getting more clients in the door.

So I’ve developed a process designed to gently and lovingly help you Get Clear around what you most love about what you do, who most needs it, and how you really want to do it.  It’s a roadmap back to yourself.  From this place, marketing, sales and every aspect of your business get easier and more fulfilling.

Now, we add in Nourishment …

So I’ve built a rejuvenating retreat experience around my process, set in beautiful hot springs in southern Colorado, and I’ve enlisted an incredibly knowledgeable and self-aware nourishment expert to nurture us with food and inspire our own self-care.  Meals will be lovingly planned and prepared by nutrition expert and body guru, Lily Calfee.

And we integrate it with Conscious Movement …

While clarity is a gift, I believe that the real juice in life comes from taking action on that clarity.  So as we work through our business strategies in our heads, I’m going to use my over twenty years of dance and yoga experience to take it to our mats to identify fears as they rise up in our bodies.

We’ll use ground-breaking body awareness exercises and millenia-old yoga practices to discover our resistance, absorb new info, and embody new possibilities.  Don’t worry, you do not need to be an experienced or advanced yogi to attend!  Complete beginners and newbies, as well as those of us who feel woefully out of shape, will feel welcome and able to do the exercises.

We will stretch.  We will transform.  So what you take home won’t just be a bunch of notes and goals, but will be a visceral experience in your body.

Let your body guide you!

Testimonials for Diane and the Get Clear Process

“I came to the Getting Clear workshop not having many expectations if only because I wasn’t sure what the scope would cover. That said, I was completely blown away. Diane gave an entirely new and eye-opening perspective that truly resonated with me and how I operate and think through things. She really seem 100% engaged with everyone sitting in the group, and her ideas, while sometimes focused on one individual, were transferable and permeable to the whole group. I have since made a conscious effort to shift how I think about my business and that has made a profound effect on how I build content and create ideas for my business in the future. I’m looking forward to following her workshops this year!”

– Jessica Johnson, Body in Mind Massage

“Diane is not only a social marketing genius and a business guru, she’s also an incredibly genuine, funny, and inspirational person to work with… It wasn’t simply the fact that Diane is an effective business woman, it was also that she helped me to finally comprehend that running my own business effectively and successfully was entirely possible– and doing anything other than what I truly wanted to was, simply put, a waste of my talent, energy and time… I’m incredibly happy with her services, and I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to make a positive change in their life regarding their small business goals, following their dreams, and doing what they’re actually meant to be doing in life.”

– Heidi Keyes, Artist

Testimonials for Lily and Ideal Nourishment

“I now have ways to describe the “hunger” that I’m feeling. I’ll surprise myself sometimes and not be hungry when I’m really working on something I love and feeling really supported in it… Conversely, I can now clearly identify the other type of “hunger” that is my craving for being loved, being appreciated, for being with others. You are amazing!”

– Lisa Knauer

“Lily creates a safe, open space for women to share their lives, talk about how to create happiness and support each other. Lily has lots of great exercises that make it easy to reflect on the current state of your life, identify areas in which you want to improve, and discuss how to go about that. She uses a combination of guided exercises and open discussion, giving the group enough structure to make progress, but making it flexible enough to meet everyone’s needs. I can’t wait to keep creating happiness with Lily’s help!”

– Kealy Devoy
