The Finding You Retreat

Get updates on upcoming in-person events with Elaine & Leeana!

San Diego, CA

July 7-9, 2023


Relationships are beautiful, tricky, fraught, and the absolute fabric of our lives! Are you trusting yourself in the most important relationships in your life? Family of origin relationships, romantic partnerships, friendships, parenting? It's hard, right!?
We get it and we can help! In this weekend group process-oriented retreat, The Finding You Project founders Leeana Tankersley and Elaine Hamilton will host a small group of women to consider the theme: Trusting Yourself in Relationships.
We'll talk about listening to your gut, honing your intuition, using your voice, honoring your own needs, creating boundaries where necessary, letting down your guard where you are safe. We want to help you identify where you are overfunctioning (taking too much responsibility) and where you are underfunctioning (not taking enough). 
Sessions include teaching from Elaine and Leeana, personal reflection, group processing and discussion, and lots of support. We’ll also enjoy dinners together, coffee breaks, and plenty of indulgent snacks. All in the beauty and comfort and safety of a private home.
 Overnight lodging is not provided. Each attendee will need to secure her own accommodations.

  • Time spent with a like-minded community of women who want to pursue healing and growth (just like you!)

Trusting Yourself Through Change, Disappointments, and Derailments

Life has a pesky way of not turning out the way we planned. What Leeana and Elaine can’t do is tell you how to craft a life without disappointments. But what they can do is tell you how to find your way through them, and how to avoid intensifying, prolonging, or getting stuck in them.   

In this intimate, process-oriented retreat, we are gathering women of all life stages and faith backgrounds to have an honest conversation about what happens when life changes, detours, or derails altogether, and what it means to trust ourselves when we have to recover and rebuild.
