Retreat with Purpose

Dates to be Announced

Blending together wellness, coaching and development, and hyperlocal culture, this retreat offers a special escape from the world to reset from the inside out in the most nurturing and healing "beautiful by nature" environment, the Turks and Caicos Islands. Join us to experience a unique and innovative new retreat concept in meaningful tourism.


Infinite Transformation

Retreat to find yourself, to live your dreams, to inspire and to be inspired, to embrace and be embraced in community, to learn about local culture and more about yourself. Leave with clarity, focus, and purpose for your life path and the tools you need to live your dreams. Join a community of other soulful seekers who aspire to enhance their understanding of self and contribute to the world in a deeper, more profound and meaningful way. We are purposeful and thoughtful about the environments we invite you into, creating safe spaces for your truest self to emerge along with a community to support you and cheer you on every step of the way. Let the island vibes and this beautiful, sacred space inspire and empower you to be your most authentic self.

Wellness & Wellbeing

Each day begins with movement, meditation, and mindfulness led by the incomparable Lizzie Foster. Enjoy yoga, somatic movement, and meditations sprinkled throughout the retreat and aligned with the themes of each day. Through embodying the concepts and moving through them physically, your cells and your DNA will embrace them in an infinitely impactful way, allowing you to expedite your growth and progress toward living your dream life. Movement and mindfulness combined with a life-changing system and methodology - what could be more meaningful?

Coaching & Development

Immerse yourself in Creative Life Design, a unique system and methodology by Dana J Buchman that inspires you to create new DREAM-Goals instead of SMART goals and go after them in a non-linear way. Each day will include an interactive session to reflect on your recent past, uncover patterns, set DREAM-Goals and design your life to live your dreams. This system is particularly helpful for those who are creative, neurodivergent, and non-linear thinkers. Walk away with clarity, focus, and purpose plus tools to support you in achieving everything you truly desire.

Hyperlocal Culture

The beaches are beautiful and the people are even more-so. Enjoy a taste of the Turks and Caicos Islands with the most authentic hyperlocal cultural experiences. Led by our resident island girls and in partnership with the best local tour operators the islands have to offer, each day includes an afternoon of activities, excursions, and play time. Enjoy daily local cuisine, arts, and entertainment amongst the most awe-inspiring Grace Bay beach, voted best beach in the world for 10 years running. There's nothing like having local friends to show you the best hidden gems and experiences!

We are focused on helping transform the lives of everyone we come into contact with and inspiring and empowering each of you to live your dreams. Meaningful tourism and hosting a Retreat with Purpose is unique and special. That's why we are engaging with local communities and charities such as The Hope Foundation to support them in living their dreams while we're supporting you to do the same. By participating in this retreat, you will not only be investing in yourself, but in the local communities that are the lifeblood of the Turks and Caicos Islands. The values listed below are the cornerstone of our work and we look for these qualities in the participants we select for this meaningful experience.


Generosity & Abundance

Together we hold a mindset of abundance and never scarcity, fear, or lack. We honor deep trust and generosity of thought, time, and resources, with collective faith in the flow of abundance for all. We always assume positive intent and hold sacred space for vulnerabilities, insecurities, and any suffering. We support each others' dreams and celebrate them as our own.


Open & Curious Worldview

We value, embrace, and appreciate unique differences in cultures, beliefs, and lifestyles. With an open mind and innocent curiosity, we ask questions to seek understanding, expand knowledge, and challenge our current beliefs. We believe that everyone deserves respect and that genuine openness and curiosity create opportunities for expansion and understanding.


Playfulness & Gratitude

We believe in the power of play. We never take ourselves too seriously and know that shared experiences with playfulness and laughter are valuable beyond measure. We embrace a childlike spirit and express deep gratitude throughout each experience. We are grateful for every opportunity to learn and grow, even if it's a bit uncomfortable from time to time.


Positive Impact

Together, we make the world a better place through positively impacting all the people, places, and environments we come into contact with throughout our experiences. We are passionate about respecting and giving back to the local people, culture, wildlife, land, and seas at every opportunity and leave each interaction and experience with a positive imprint.

Tentative Schedule

An overview of the Retreat with Purpose experience and daily experiences are outlined here. These details are subject to change without notice at any time.

Day 1

Welcome to the Beautiful By Nature Turks and Caicos Islands! Upon arrival, you'll settle into the retreat with a warm welcome by Dana and Lizzie including mindfulness exercises and intention-setting, along with some time to get acquainted with the resort, your hosts, and fellow participants. A family-style dinner will be served at the resort along with entertainment from one of the most fabulous local artists.

Day 2

Reflect on your past, uncover patterns, and explore the Turks & Caicos Islands. On Friday morning, you'll be divinely guided through a sunrise yoga class, followed by a nourishing breakfast and an interactive Creative Life Design session focused on reflections and inner-self work. After a quick snack, we'll head out on a boat excursion to enjoy lunch and explore the islands Moana-style, releasing anything that no longer serves us to the depths of the sea. We'll return to a cozy and delicious Caribbean dinner at the resort.

Day 3

Create your DREAM-Goals and immerse yourself in local culture with an excursion, Caribbean cuisine, and island artistry. On Saturday you'll awake to a mindful morning moment, followed by a quick breakfast and powerful DREAM-Goal setting workshop. Afterwards, we'll venture out to a local floating bar with a delightful smorgasbord of local Caribbean cuisine and fun in the sun. Upon our return to the resort, you will be invited to a pop-up local artist market to savor and shop with Turks and Caicos artists before heading out to a special dinner prepared just for us.

Day 4

Design your dream life and soak up the #1 beach in the world for 10 consecutive years, Grace Bay Beach. Begin your day with mindful movement followed by a breakfast buffet and our final Creative Life Design workshop. In this session, you'll learn the non-linear system to bring your dreams into reality and gain the tools needed to bring your dreams into your day-to-day. You'll have everything you need to continue on this journey beyond the weekend retreat and into your daily lives. The afternoon includes free time at the resort and beach, or the option of booking a selection of excursions with one of our most incredible local operators. We gather back together for our final dinner, followed by a special full moon beach moment.

Day 5

A final farewell to revisit our intentions, celebrate all we accomplished, and exchange contact details to stay in touch with the beautiful community we co-created. The morning begins with a final somatic movement and mindfulness exercise, followed by a bountiful brunch and final thoughts by Lizzie and Dana. Together, we'll remind ourselves of the intentions we set for the weekend and celebrate all the incredible transformation and self-care we enjoyed together, before bringing the retreat to a close.
