Live the Life You Deserve
The key to unlocking your full potential, happiness, success, abundance, confidence, and fulfillment lies within your mind. In a time of global uncertainty, panic, and intense pressure, it can be easy to lose track of who you are and what your purpose is.
Multi-bestselling author, motivational speaker, and leading celebrity therapist Marisa Peer will teach you the techniques of her pioneering Rapid Transformational Therapy® method to reprogram your mind, transform your life, and elevate to new levels of success, abundance, and confidence.
In this Workshop, You’ll Discover
- A simple and sensible approach to creating new mental habits
- A new set of empowering beliefs and emotions
- Ways to resolve the root cause of your issues—permanently
- How to think, feel, and perceive on a whole new level.
Once you experience the exact framework Marisa uses to help her clients break through the wall of self-doubt, self-sabotage, and self-shame, you will realize you are much closer to your dream life than you think, and Marisa will guide you through what you need to do next to get there.
Enjoy meaningful connections with like-minded people, peaceful natural surroundings, and a fun and phenomenal teacher—get ready for profound, positive, and permanent changes in your life.
This program is open to adults only.
A Retreat in the Mountains
During your stay, you have time for personal R & R also. Whether you want to explore forest trails and bask in the fresh mountain air, enjoy a pottery or watercolor painting class, release stress with a therapeutic spa treatment, the choice is yours. (Additional fees may apply.)

There are few speakers today that have the wide experience and stellar reputation of Marisa Peer. Named ‘Britain’s Best Therapist’ by Men’s Health magazine, Marisa has spent more than three decades treating a client list that includes international superstars, CEOs, royalty, and Olympic athletes. In addition to being a national magazine columnist, she has also appeared on countless major media outlets in America, Scandinavia, Japan, Africa, and throughout Europe.
A best-selling author of five books, Marisa’s USP is that she teaches “simple steps that produce dramatic and life-changing results.” When she reveals her fundamental rule—that all our emotional and personal problems come from us believing that we’re not ‘enough’—and explains how to overcome it, the results are tremendous and dramatic.
