October 12, 13, and 14/2018

Our Retreat kicks off Friday, October 12, at 6 pm. It ends Sunday, October 14, at 4 pm.

Where: Villa Venezia in Ft. Lauderdale

An intimate – and ridiculously charming – hotel on a canal in the Venetian Isles section of Ft. Lauderdale. Ft. Lauderdale is often dubbed the “Venice of the United States,” and we’ll be right in the middle of the canal district, walking distance to both the beach and Downtown Las Olas. Villa Venezia is currently ranked the #1 lodging in Ft. Lauderdale on Tripadvisor, from a list of 133 venues.




Charting sustained success in our professional and personal lives means learning to walk the line between intentional action and allowing. Not so easy, as we all know! Together, we will explore the notion of effortless effort. Investigate how we generate forward motion at work and in our personal lives with greater ease. We will examine how to better access deep work and higher engagement in our increasingly distracted lives.

FLOW FORWARD will be hosted by Achim Nowak, C-Suite Coach, Best-selling Author, TEDx Speaker and Mastermind Convener. The visit to the Equulibrium Horse Ranch will be facilitated by Dr. Giselle Faubel, Harvard-trained Psychologist and an authority in equine-assisted Personal Development.


What Will We Be Doing?

Our FLOW FORWARD Retreat will consist of 50% Experiential Activities and 50% Mastermind conversations. We will have two amazing guest speakers to inspire us (I’m keeping their identity a surprise for now). We will spend half a day at the Equulibrium horse ranch in Western Broward County – not to ride horses but to learn about primal wisdom and intuitive leadership. We will have a group visit to the beach. We will dine in spectacular waterfront places. We will be inspired by our collective wisdom.  And we will have lots of FUN!
