Retreats for Women: Exploring New Possibliites

The Architect & The Tree
An International & Local Favorite!

The Architect & The Tree Potomac, MD

We are planning an unforgettable, empowering experience.

Close your eyes and take 3 deep breaths. Clear your mind and imagine what I’m about to describe:

You are in a safe, warm, artistically beautiful and empowering space. The glorious, yet hectic holiday season is over, the New Year has begun, and you are carving out time for yourself to dream, plan ahead, to breathe and just be.

You have said “yes” to The Architect & The Tree experience, though you don’t know how the day is going to unfold.

Then we begin.

You embark on an insightful journey to creatively and strategically plan for how your year ahead will unfold. It’s the perfect time to focus on YOU – why shouldn’t 2018 be your year?! You join an intimate gathering of women inspired to take action and make each life-moment count.

You play the magical role of the Architect and design – from the ground up – one or several seed-thoughts of your own choosing. Whatever you choose, know that you will experience and create something meaningful and beautiful. Something you may have always wanted…


Deepen your relaxation, during or toward the end of your planning session: dip into a heated pool, far infrared sauna or schedule a fabulous 20 minute, head, feet and shoulders body massage, Ahhhh …. (Additional fee, reservations required)

Prepare to:

  • Remember who you are and what more you can be
  • Discover what you’re going to do differently in 2018.
  • Share stories and bond with like-spirited women
  • Plan, play and prepare for what’s ahead
  • Create a personalized MAP that will help you navigate your way from imagining to actualizing.
  • Make a long-term commitment to honoring your own needs for self-care

It’s not a cliché … Life really IS a journey. Our collective aim is to be inspiring, to be inspired and to practically transform the way we are in our world. You will learn and perhaps even share ways to create a calming sense of balance and coherence.

You will learn scientifically proven techniques to make changes that are sustainable – even when you do trip up on your path once in a while!

You will walk away renewed, ready to begin, vibrant and reconnected to life.

You deserve it!

  • "Mozella, you and Nike are so right … “just do it!” The provocative question that continues to drive me: What would I do if I wasn’t afraid of failing? We as women haven’t been taught to value ourselves and consequently we measure our worth by external reflections – we work too hard, over-extend, compromise, etc. What you offer is an opportunity to bask in our own light, stretch and grow, and work to prioritize ourselves. Again, thank you!"

Past Participants Shared

“This retreat was a beautiful, heart-centered and productive day. What a joy and special treat!”

“I must say this has been the highlight of my 52 years. I have never met a more exhilarating planning session ever …”

“I found my inner self, experienced the stillness needed and was able to focus and plan for the new season.”

“Mozella’s quiet, poetic and wise guidance made our day magical! Our retreat became a circle of friendships and trust which we look forward to nurturing and growing! Everyone reached a new level of self awareness; through group sessions and personal meditation and reflection, we each individually peeled back old layers of loss and disappointment and finally arrived at a new place, feeling renewed, and reawakened, realigned with our core needs and wants. New friendship sprung up, and old friendships experienced a new awareness.”
