San Diego Business Retreat | Human Design

I’m really excited to share with you this San Diego business retreat that I had the pleasure of not only assisting coordinate, but also attending. The retreat was hosted by one of my friends and Haven Conference speaker, Lauren Armstrong. This was a Human Design retreat teaching entrepreneurs how to leverage their unique Human Design into their business.

If you have never heard of Human Design – allow me to give you a brief explanation. Human Design is your unique make up that was given to you at the exact month, day, hour and minute you were born. It is a series of types, authorities, centers, numbers, etc. that are exclusive to you and make you who you are. At first, I wasn’t hesitant to believe this and it all seemed a bit out there. But after my first call with Lauren and her explaining to me what being a Manifestor (what my type is) with Ego-Manifested authority (what my authority is) actually means – it felt like she had known me my whole life. She was able to tell me things about my behavior, actions, etc. that were so accurate and left me speechless.

What I love the most about Lauren and her teaching style is she puts Human Design into layman’s terms. A lot of the other websites, books and podcasts that you find related to this topic, use a lot of “woo-woo” wording that is confusing and not approachable. Lauren has a way of explaining it and talking about it that makes you feel comfortable, which is why she is the perfect individual to host a Human Design retreat.

What was really cool about this San Diego business retreat was all of the attendees (including myself) had completed Lauren’s Human Design for Business program – so we already had a deep knowledge of our unique Human Designs and were able to go way deeper during the retreat. Most of our days during the retreat started with a beach walk and coffee in Encinitas, CA – scroll below to see all the beautiful images from the retreat captured by Meg Marie Photography.

After our morning beach walks we would make it back to our adorable house rental in Carlsbad, CA and make breakfast. I would normally lay out the breakfast spread of bagels, fruit, avocado, granola and more, but this morning we all jumped in.

After a little morning movement, coffee and breakfast – we got to work! As I mentioned we had all already gone through Lauren’s Human Design for Business program and had a fairly good understanding of our designs. So our work sessions were a deep dive and were mastermind style. We took turns going around the circle and talking about what we were struggling with or wanted to work on in our businesses and used our knowledge of Human Design to solve the problem.

There were so many cool moments and crazy breakthroughs that came from this. One of the attendees decided she was going to host a wellness retreat in Maui, another attendee discovered that she may need to bring on a business partner, while I decided that I love helping entrepreneurs host retreats, workshops, conferences, etc. and wanted to officially add it to my service offerings.

If you have never attended a retreat of any kind before – I highly recommend giving it a try. There is something so magical about being in a space with a bunch of people that are there for the same reason. I have never left a retreat I have attended thinking it was a waste of time or money – especially a business retreat. If you need a little convincing I wrote this post on 4 Reasons to Attend a Conference or any type of event for that matter.

If you want to host your own retreat or event and need some assistance planning it or making it happen, inquire and let us discover how we can help you!
