Permission to Escape Reality for a hot minute.

online gathering Oct. 10 -- 1:30 p.m. EST

Everyone wants a piece of you. The to-do list is neverending. And, you’re tired … so tired.

But you have big plans and big ideas. It’s time to carve out time for yourself to think about your own needs and desires.

Here’s your permission slip to do just that …

It’s a very noisy world filled with a lot of worries and uncertainty right now.

Everywhere you look, there is MORE to think about and more to do. More to read. More to try. More to experience. More to fear.

Aligned, a Virtual Retreat, is for creative women leaders, changemakers and entrepreneurs who need permission to take up space in your own life.

Bring your worries, ideas, dreams, all the parts of you that are feeling stuck and your self-doubt and I’ll feed your soul with soul stirring prompts, soulful wisdom and empowering inspiration to create a stronger, clearer YOU. 

We’ll journal together. Breathe together. Go quiet together. Grow stronger together. And dream together in this soul aligned circle of calm.

This is YOUR time for YOU — and your needs and dreams.


Life is a whirlwind. It’s time to ZOOM out and dedicate time to all the parts of your life that need tended.

The one thing that stands in your way between this moment and doing the work of your dreams is … you.

Your energy.

Your stamina.

Your well-being.

Your goals.

You know that when you feel great, you are more likely to make impactful progress.

The Aligned Virtual Retreat is designed to help YOU pause and replenish yourself in mind, body and spirit while also planning out your most extraordinary next season of life. 

Anyone can do ordinary.

This retreat is about helping you be extraordinary.

Being Soulfully Aligned is about stepping into your extraordinary needs and desires so you have more energy than ever for your messy, beautiful and busy life and creative work dreams.

You’ll leave this retreat feeling excited and ready to make an even bigger impact in your life and work.

 A little about me …

Hello. I’m Shawn. I am a creative soul and Gen Xer who is creeping up on 50. I’m an instigator and changemaker that started out as a free spirit in my early years as a latchkey kid. I’m a starter and a doer.

I make things happen. I am highly sensitive and strategic. I am equally introverted and extroverted. I am an anti-racist and a feminist. I am a fiction lover and a nature lover. I am a twin mother. I am passionate about offering spiritual well-being and direction for brave leadership and living.

Do you need a life alignment?

this retreat is ideal for you if … 

  • You need to feel stronger for the months ahead.
  • You want to create more goals for yourself.
  • You crave a more sacred, whole-hearted lifestyle but don’t know where to begin.
  • You struggle to choose between a nap or changing the world.
  • You are overwhelmed and need to get clear on your priorities in your work, business or life. 
  • You are tired of putting everyone else first and yourself last. 
  • You want to be filled up with inspiration and sisterhood to feel more inspired.
  • You long to live a more balanced life that has space for your passions and creativity.
  • You are tired of feeling like you are just dialing it all in and not truly living your life to the fullest.


“A delightful way to take time for myself!”

“Shawn’s retreat was a delightful way to take some time for myself and spend time with other like-minded women from around the world doing some of my favorite things: being silent, reflecting, planning, laughing, and sharing our stories. I feel prepared to take myself into the new year with confidence on my own, knowing the support of these ladies is always available.

— Rani P.


What You Can Expect to Experience on Your Soulfully Aligned Virtual Retreat Day

The retreat’s mission is to create a Brave Yes space for passionate women like you who want more out of your life and who craves time to dream BIG while also nourishing and uplifting your spirits to make a bigger impact at home and in the world.

SPACE TO DREAM — The retreat will offer you space for deep contemplation and reflection to help you get clear and find clarity around what has been working well for you — and what is not. We’ll do this through soul alignment journaling AND life editing exercises.

SPACE TO ALIGN — You will be asked a lot of powerful questions to set yourself ablaze with momentum and desires of what you want to invite into your life over the next season. You will have a chance to reflect and plan out in all areas of your wholistic life.  Prepare to be amazed by your own possibilities. 

SPACE TO RELEASE —  During the last portion, we’ll use a hands-on trusting and letting go ritual to use to transition to return back to your life and put your vision into action. During this sacred space of time you will be preparing to put everything into action from the full retreat. You’ll want to bring markers and different colored pens to this portion. 

Frequently Asked Questions


Soulfully Aligned Retreats with Shawn Fink are held on Zoom for 2.5 hours of integrated wholistic soul alignment coaching and planning with a few nourishing and bio breaks mixed in for integration and embodied self-care. A week prior to the event, you will receive a beautiful, seasonally inspired 20+ page workbook to use before, during and after our retreat together.


No. This is it. You may want to mark your calendars and prepare to sign up for the other retreats in the coming year. 


Everything you need will be provided during the retreat itself. There is no pre-work or homework — unless you want to fill out the workbook ahead of time (totally optional, my dear). Just grab a cup of tea, a cozy blanket and space in your home or office and bring your planner and a journal. The rest will be called forth from within YOU. Our retreat will last for 2.5 hours and will include mini breaks for you to rest.


My greatest hope is that you will walk away feeling inspired and ready for the next season of your life. But more specifically, you will walk away with the following:


  • A very clear understanding of what you want to unfold in your life in the upcoming season — both at work and at home.
  • A list of projects you want to feel flow and energy around for greater life impact.
  • A plan for sustainable REST in your life.
  • A dream list of ways you plan to add meaning and joy to all areas of your life.
  • A clear understanding of who you want to be and how you want to live.
  • And, a network of supportive women to stay in touch with and keep accountable to your progress.
