Launching a podcast is a fabulous and challenging objective. It is a journey of self-exploration, confidence, and determination that requires a deep sense of connection to yourself and to your purpose. This is why we decided to organize this retreat in a unique wilderness oasis on the border of Mexico & Arizona. The property, owned by Valer Clark, used to be a depleted land and is now a beautiful ranch filled with wildlife, water, and art. It is one of the few real-life land restoration experiments studied by scientists around the world, a safe haven that will transport you far from the hustle of everyday life into a magnificent 130,000 acres of private ecological paradise where you’ll reconnect to nature, vision & purpose
