14 women. 5 days. One big question.
In February 2018 we are traveling to one of the most beautiful places on earth to answer one of life’s biggest questions: what does it mean to truly live well?
We’ve spent years seeking, studying and growing to become the women we are today. We’ve built amazing lives, made many of our dreams come true and now we’re ready to take the idea of success to a whole new level.
We know there’s more - we can hear it in our hearts and see it in our minds. We feel undeniably called.
It’s time to gather. Nothing makes it easier to leap than doing it together.
This adventure will develop your capacity to become the embodiment of love and freedom and to live beyond your wildest imagination.
In 5 days, we’ll practice, learn, tell stories, adventure, restore and remember who we are and what we’re here to do. We’ll rise with the sun and hike, meditate and do yoga. We’ll brunch and dive into big time conversation about the day’s theme, teaching and inspiring each other. Afternoons are for taking time to let it all sink in with play and spa, meditation and more adventure. Our evenings will be spent filling ourselves on stories, good wine, ritual and swimming under the stars.
This is an event like no other. It’s for the wise women who are ready to meet each other, to practice, deepen and embody the wisdom they’ve been gathering for years.
We’ve all taken our seats as women who are here to make the world a better place and we can’t do it alone. You will leave with the strength and certainty you need to be more true to yourself and walk a path of joy that can only be designed by you.

Nekupe Sporting Resort and Retreat is an 1,800-acre nature reserve in Nicaragua’s Pacific countryside that offers opportunities to stimulate your mind, your body and your soul. It is the vision of Don Alfredo Jr. and Doña Theresa Pellas, avid travelers and adventure enthusiasts whose commitment to nature is exhibited through the resort’s core principles of respect and stewardship of the environment.
This sanctuary is located in Nandaime, the “place of abundant streams.” It is just under two hours from the Augusto C. Sandino International Airport in Managua, 30 minutes from the charming colonial city of Granada and just over an hour from the Pacific Coast.
Nekupe houses an animal sanctuary with more than 158 species of plants, including more than 14,000 trees that were planted throughout the reserve. Wildlife and fauna is sustained by the reservoirs developed by a team of local experts and ecologists. The sobering aura of the grounds serves as a backdrop for a variety of recreational activities and nature appreciation.
This exceptional property offers a seamless confluence of sustainable nature-based design with Feng Shui inspiration, rich Nicaraguan culture and warm hospitality, nurturing exploration, adventure, wellbeing and peace. Experiences include horseback riding, mountain top yoga, tennis, organic gardening and cooking classes.
The team at Nekupe is firmly rooted in the belief that it is our responsibility as inhabitants of this planet to treat it with the utmost respect and care. With this in mind, every program and building at Nekupe has been created with sustainability and social responsibility in mind, so that they can help preserve our environment, a continual source of sustenance, inspiration and beauty. To that point, the buildings at the reserve are currently using solar panels as a part of that sustainability effort.
