This sounds dope. Who exactly is this trip for?

Well, if you think it sounds dope then it's probably for you. IGNITE 2020 is for anyone looking to start off their year in the purest way possible... experiencing the power of travel and nature to fuel meaningful connections, personal growth and as a result, building the life they - you - crave.

Who will be running the workshops?

Workshops will be led by myself, Josh and Brian. Fitness will be led by your truly. Yoga + meditations will be led by all of us. Interested in leading a workshop? Let me know!

I really want to come but the price is a little steep.

Shoot me an email to talk about payment plans and if the price is still unattainable, we can chat about ways to bring it down.

Where are we staying?

Beachcomber at Las Canas, Dominican Republic.

Do I have to come back to real life after the retreat is over?

No. You do you, homie. You do you. #buildthelifeyoucrave 

For real though, we can certainly help with any extensions or additional travel plans following Ignite.

I have more questions....

Let's chat! Send me an email and we can hop on the phone.

I'm ready to sign up. How do I do it?

YESSSSS. Apply for IGNITE by telling us a bit more about yourself. We'll be in touch with next steps after that.
