Goddesses Never Age – We All Need A Tribe


Elizabeth is a master of creating a safe environment for self reflection, change and growth. – Nicole, North Carolina

Elizabeth’s retreat recharged my soul, recalibrated my mind, body, and spirit, and cleared away blocks that were holding me back from pure happiness. – Debra, Pennsylvania

Elizabeth created a beautiful space for us to explore and express. I leave each retreat feeling renewed, reenergized, and restored. – Anne, North Carolina

beach retreat viewThings I had been working on changing – for 15 years – manifested at Elizabeth’s retreat in 48 hours. I was able to shift my thinking, choose and believe I could make changes that had seemed impossible before. With Elizabeth’s gift of seasoned tools and support, and the great women present, I made a huge leap. My career path, exercise regime, and dream of helping kids has all come to fruition.
– Pam Rivers, Carrboro, NC

I was amazed – 25 years ago – at our first retreat at how quickly people moved from where they were (old stories) to who they are (new stories that are filled with creativity and possibility). Something magical happens when we create some space between what is happening in our lives and align with our true self. It gives us strength, courage and inspiration to do great things in the world!
– Elizabeth Trinkaus, on her first Pinnacle View retreat
