AWAKEN YOUR SENSES.

GAIN A PROFOUND PERSPECTIVE.

CREATE YOUR VISION FOR WHAT'S NEXT.

Women are becoming more successful than ever… 

But we have nowhere to relax and truly let go. 

As a result, we’ve lost connection to ourselves, and we’ve lost connection to our sexuality – which is literally our LIFE FORCE energy. 

It’s no wonder we’re exhausted, burned out, and struggle to tap into our creativity & vision for what’s next. 

We say, “I’m just getting older,” or “I have a good life. I shouldn’t be complaining.”

But deep down, women long to FEEL life again – to squeeze every drop of joy and pleasure out of our days… 

Instead of going through the motions, and then wondering, “Where did the time go?”

You can try a thousand different workout plans, meditate, and even go on vacation. But none of these get to the core of what you really need… to reconnect with your senses, reawaken your sexuality, and come home to yourself. 

This is the true source of your energy, vitality, and power as a woman. 

And when you tap into it, you’ll be astonished at what becomes possible.

  • Time expands
  • The years melt away – and you feel 20 years younger
  • Clarity about what you want (and how to get there) suddenly dawns

You don’t need a vacation. You need a re-awakening. 

And the time is NOW.

WHY A RETREAT?

When women deeply relax, we become wise… and a new kind of vision and clarity comes through that we simply don’t have access to in our day-to-day lives. 

This is about much more than pampering or “self-care.”

To allow the wisdom & clarity that’s already within you to emerge takes…

  • Time away from your responsibilities – and space to dream & create
  • Deep connection and intimate conversation with other successful, heartful women​
  • An environment of extraordinary beauty and clear, expansive energy
  • Illuminating deep dive processes and interviews led by trusted guides​

If your mind is saying, “I don’t have time to do this,” that’s exactly the reason you must. 

Your “to do” list will still be there when you get home. 

YOU – on the other hand – will never be the same. 

Are you ready?

DURING THIS LIFE-CHANGING

7-DAY EXPERIENCE YOU WILL...

  • Step back from your life and gain a profound new perspective on what’s next 
  • Develop a plan to grow in your career/business from a place of aliveness and ease (rather than “hard work”)
  • Look and feel 10 years younger as the stress melts away and you unlock a new source of energy and aliveness 
  • Learn new ways to tap into your turn on – practices you can use with yourself and bring home to your partner to feel more vibrant & connected than you have in years (maybe ever!)
  • Receive laser coaching from Gigi & Makena Sage – a mother/daughter team with more than 40 years of combined coaching and consulting experience
  • Feel your energy rise and your true self re-emerging… then bring this vitality back with you into your everyday life & business. 
  • Create new friendships with the kind of soul-sisters you’ve always wished you had – who truly empower you and become lifelong friends & business connections
APPLY NOW

“Before the retreat, I felt like I’d lost myself… I had a great life, but I was letting others pull me in a lot of different directions.

Now, it’s like I’ve gotten my old self back. The world is just a different color. All the women were so empowering – and I’ve made great friends. The power, energy, and support I experienced at Arts of a Woman is unbelievable.”

– Simone Stein (New York)

THE LOCATION...

PALM TREE HOUSE BALI

This year’s event will take place at the gorgeous Palm Tree House resort, in the popular Canggu region of Bali – near some of Bali’s best organic cafes and beaches. Each participant will have a private room inside a gorgeous shared villa, and every villa features its own swimming pool, kitchen, and multiple living areas to lounge & relax. 

You’ll enjoy all-inclusive service at the resort, including: airport pickup & dropoff, delicious meals, yoga classes, ayurvedic massages, and more (see full list below). 

Training sessions will take place in one of the villas, and all of the women will stay at the resort together – giving you the time and space to learn, reflect and bond as a community. This magical spot with expansive energy and the sweetness of Bali will be your haven for the week… allowing you to deeply unwind, tap into a new source of energy & vitality, and come home to your true self. 

THIS YEAR'S THEME...

ARTS OF A SENSUAL WOMAN

For most women, sensuality and sexuality tends to fall to the bottom of our priority list. We think, “I don’t have the time,” “I’m not interested in my partner anymore,” or “That part of my life is over now.” But here’s the truth: When you disconnect from this part of yourself, it creates stuck energy that has a profound impact on other areas of your life. 

Common “symptoms” include: lack of flow with money (earning less than you’re capable of or feeling stuck around money in some way), hormonal issues, menopause, tiredness, lack of vitality, looking or feeling older than your years, difficulty tapping into your creativity or vision for what’s next, boredom and disconnection in your relationships, little-to-no interest in sex. (And when a couple is disconnected, it has a ripple effect on their children, the health & well-being of the family unit, and their success in career/business.) This is not an exaggeration. It is truly that important. 

You want to know the missing piece that will help you get unstuck, look and feel younger, have more energy and vitality, feel more connected to yourself (and your partner), open up to new ideas and inspiration, and attract more money into your life? This is it. 

Rarely in our lives do we have the time and space tap into our feminine sensual nature. Most women have lots of questions about these topics, but nowhere to talk about this or receive expert guidance. That’s why this year’s theme is sensuality. In addition to looking at what’s next for your life and career, we’ll have entertaining and illuminating dialogues about the role of sexuality & sensuality in your life, relationships and business. You’ll learn practices to unwind and reawaken the senses. And you’ll go home with new skills you can apply with yourself and your partner. Get ready to feel more relaxed, beautiful, fulfilled and ALIVE. 

EVENT FLOW & ACTIVITIES...

You’ll arrive in Bali on Friday, April 22nd and be picked up at the airport by the amazing resort staff, who will welcome you to Bali for the experience of a lifetime. Once you arrive at the resort, you’ll have the rest of the day to unpack, relax and get ready. The retreat officially takes place Saturday, April 23rd – Friday, April 29th and includes 6 days of workshop sessions as well as a 1-day sightseeing excursion in Bali. 

Workshop sessions begin each day between 12-1pm, so you can take the mornings to lay by the pool, explore the nearby beaches, write in your journal, and unwind. You’ll enjoy daily breakfast, snacks & unlimited coffee at the resort, and can take your time easing into the day. 

Afternoons and evenings will be spent in transformational training sessions and fun & pleasurable group activities – with plenty of time to connect with other participants during meal breaks and mornings. These training sessions will be your opportunity to discover what’s next for you in your life & business and create a clear vision you’re excited to step into. 

Check out is on Saturday, April 30th and you’ll be personally chauffeured to the airport – feeling more relaxed and ALIVE than you have in a long time. IMPORTANT: We ask that you book your flights to arrive in Bali by April 22nd and leave on April 30th, so you can be present for the full retreat experience. (Due to the time change, your flights may arrive on a different day than the depart, so please check your itinerary carefully!)

YOUR RETREAT EXPERIENCE INCLUDES...

INTENSIVE WORKSHOP SESSIONS

The workshop sessions will give you a space to listen, learn, and a whole new world will dawn. Interactive exercises and reflection will create a shift in perspective. You’ll learn new skills & practices to apply in your personal and professional life. Laser coaching with Gigi and Makena will help you get clarity – and breakthrough anything that’s keeping you stuck. 

DEEP RELAXATION
(YOGA & MASSAGE)

There’s a reason we always host this retreat in a stunning tropical location. The warmth and beauty of the environment – combined with the transformative nature of the retreat – will allow you to deeply relax and unwind in a way you may never have experienced before. You’ll also enjoy 3 Ayurvedic massages and 4 yoga classes included in your retreat experience. 

HIGH-VITALITY FOOD

Daily breakfast, snacks & unlimited coffee are included in your package – as well as 5 lunches and 5 dinners during the course of your 7-day retreat. This leaves two days open for your sightseeing excursion, Balinese cooking class, and a group dinner out one evening. There are plenty of food options available, and the chefs and kitchen team can easily cater to any allergies or dietary needs.

PHOTOSHOOT

One of the most fun (and surprisingly transformative) aspects of this retreat is your mini-photoshoot. This year, each woman will receive a sensuality-themed photoshoot, where a female photographer will take stunning, tasteful photos of you embodying your most feminine, sensual self. The final edited photos will be yours to keep and use as you wish. 

BALINESE COOKING CLASS

Learn to make traditional Indonesian favorites in this fun and interactive cooking class. You’ll practice making Sambal – a traditional condiment served with Balinese food that is spicy, delicious and full of flavor. Plus other dishes and beverages that are native to the area. Get ready to awaken your senses of taste, touch, sight and smell as you create a delicious meal together. 

SIGHTSEEING EXCURSION

In addition to 6 days of training sessions, your retreat experience includes a full-day sightseeing excursion to the beautiful town of Ubud, where you can experience a myriad of activities, including a traditional Balinese water blessing, a sound healing ceremony, a delicious lunch at one of Ubud’s most spectacular restaurants, the Ubud market and more.

AIRPORT PICKUP & DROP-OFF

Your all-inclusive experience begins as soon as you arrive in Bali. You’ll be picked up at the airport by the Palm Tree House staff and escorted to your oasis for the week. Then at the end of your experience, they will bring you back to the airport to catch your flight home – feeling more relaxed and vibrant than you ever imagined possible.

MEET YOUR GUIDES

Gigi Sage
is an international author, life-transformer, and relationship-changer. She began her career as a coach and trainer in 1986, and helped pioneer the coaching industry as we know it today. Over the past 35 years, she’s trained hundreds of coaches and touched hundreds of thousands of people through her books, seminars, programs and retreats... inspiring them to follow their curiosity, become more effective communicators in their personal & professional relationships, and create lives & businesses that truly bring them alive. Many of her clients work with her over 5, 10, and even 20 years or more – coming back again and again to tap into their vision for what’s next, let go of what’s holding them back, and step into their next level of success, freedom and fulfillment.  

Gigi’s books have been published in 6 countries, and companies such as JP Morgan Chase, Shell, Rice University, Duke Energy (formerly PanEnergy) and executives from IBM and Siemens have benefitted from her deep knowledge of people and how to setup systems that decrease conflict and turnover, improve employee performance, and accelerate growth. 

A native Texan and mom to 5 grown children, Gigi spends her summers in Europe and loves to travel for business and pleasure. Her passion is waking people up to their brilliance and the lives they were meant to live, so they can create a ripple effect that changes the world.

Makena Sage
was raised in seminar rooms – and was the youngest person to ever complete Gigi’s high-performance leadership & coaching certification when she was just 12 years old. Despite this empowering upbringing, as a teen Makena struggled with self-doubt, and worried she wouldn’t be successful doing what she loved. This led her to study International Business – graduating summa cum laude, then spending six years running her own 6-figure online marketing company, before she “woke up” to the fact that she was financially successful, but totally miserable. 

Returning to her roots and The Aliveness Method changed everything. She went from having near-daily panic attacks and countless “mystery” symptoms, to feeling lit up, healthy & energized in a matter of months... and she never looked back.

Makena became determined to share these skills and tools in a much bigger way – and she partnered with Gigi to become the co-founder and CEO of Follow Your Aliveness. 

Makena lives in Austin, TX with her husband Sunny. Her passion is empowering World Changers to step into their full potential – making great money doing work they love, and making the world a better place in the process.

AWAKEN YOUR SENSES.

GAIN A PROFOUND PERSPECTIVE.

Women are becoming more successful than ever…

As a result, we’ve lost connection to ourselves, and we’ve lost connection to our sexuality – which is literally our LIFE FORCE energy. 

It’s no wonder we’re exhausted, burned out, and struggle to tap into our creativity & vision for what’s next. 

We say, “I’m just getting older,” or “I have a good life. I shouldn’t be complaining.”

But deep down, women long to FEEL life again – to squeeze every drop of joy and pleasure out of our days… 

Instead of going through the motions, and then wondering, “Where did the time go?”

You can try a thousand different workout plans, meditate, and even go on vacation. But none of these get to the core of what you really need… to reconnect with your senses, reawaken your sexuality, and come home to yourself. 

This is the true source of your energy, vitality, and power as a woman. 

And when you tap into it, you’ll be astonished at what becomes possible.

Your “to do” list will still be there when you get home. 

YOU – on the other hand – will never be the same. 

Are you ready?

DURING THIS LIFE-CHANGING 7-DAY EXPERIENCE YOU WILL...

  • Step back from your life and gain a profound new perspective on what’s next 
  • Develop a plan to grow in your career/business from a place of aliveness and ease (rather than “hard work”)

What is the weather like in Bali in late April?

April marks the end of the rainy season in Bali, with increasing warm days and sunshine. The average temperature is 81 degrees Fahrenheit (27 C), with lows around 72 degrees (22 C) and highs of up to 90 degrees (32 C). In other words, it’s perfect tropical weather!
