ELEVATE YOUR LIFE | A Retreat for Women

Wellspring Manor and Spa

Saturday, April 27, 2019

Optional Saturday overnight stay. (Space is limited)



You are smart. You are capable. It’s likely that others believes this. But you’re still not feeling fulfilled. Or maybe you’re not feeling like you’re enough.  Or maybe you haven’t had the space to figure out your feelings.

We have created a space for you to let go of your responsibilities for a while and focus on a different possibility for your life. You will embark on a powerful journey created and tailored just for you. One where you reconnect with your mind, body, and spirit and step into an experience that changes your life.


You are worth it. You deserve it. You are enough. And now is your time.

Patrice created a warm environment but also challenged you to push yourself to your edge and asked good questions to get you thinking. The small group setting was ideal. Recommend!

Tailored to You


Our commitment to supporting you starts before the retreat and continues after it is over.

Once you submit your registration, you will receive a questionnaire that will provide us with the information and insights we need to personalize your time with us and create an experience that speaks to your needs.

After completing the questionnaire, you will receive a personal call from our host and lead facilitator, Patrice Ford Lyn who will have an initial consultation with you to ensure that she understands your needs, what you want to achieve and answer any questions you might have.

Within a month after the retreat, Patrice will continue to support your journey with a follow up coaching session.

Patrice Ford Lyn C.P.C.

Patrice has a depth of experience, passion for helping people thrive and commitment to guiding transformational outcomes.

As someone who has been on both sides of the coach - client relationship, Patrice understands the vulnerability it takes for her clients to share their experiences, fears, and desires.  With this understanding, she creates and maintains a safe space for clients to explore their truth as they figure out how to move forward in a way that feels right for them.  Her clients come from all walks of life.  What unites them is feeling stuck between the lives they have and the lives they want.  

Patrice has been working in strategic planning and organizational development for more than 18 years and personal transformation and wellness for more than eight years. She is a certified professional coach, reiki practitioner, and skilled facilitator/trainer. She has planned, facilitated and participated in numerous personal transformation retreats and group coaching series. She has also guided the start three national-level organizations and worked with other leaders to build their organizations while supporting them through their own personal growth. 

As a bisexual, black, immigrant woman, Patrice brings a deep appreciation of the ongoing pressures faced by marginalized groups and the ways these truths can manifest in their lives. She gets it. When you work with her, your greatness is non-negotiable.

Patrice coaches clients throughout the US and beyond. Whether you are feeling stuck in your personal or professional life, know she can help you to thrive.  Her work is so highly regarded that she also coaches coaches!  

Thank you for your empathy, your kindness and your ability to push so I could see things another way. It helped me to pause and be calm, largely because you were so welcoming.
