NOVEMBER 8 – 10, 2019

re(treat) yourself

Our 2019 was a sell out.

We have our thinking caps on about what 2020 will look like as we start to get back together in groups.

We know how much these retreats have inspired attendees and given them the tools to navigate these uncertain times from a place of strength.

Sign up to be among the first to know what we plan next. 


Thanks for your interest.

Change your life and join us for a Rise Up Retreat™ at the historic Wequassett Resort and Golf Club on Cape Cod.









Is this weekend for me?

The short answer? Absolutely yes.

Whether you’re divorced, widowed, empty-nested, contemplating retirement or a job change, sandwiched or simply coping with change in your life, all of us need deep relaxation, reflection, and rejuvenation for challenging times. This intimate weekend retreat is led by two master coaches will meet you where you are, and with the support of the group, move you towards where you want to be.

Using meditation, mindful movement, coaching exercises, and journaling, what’s waiting to emerge will be brought forth. Your intuitive source will be renewed. When you open your heart to the facts of your life and ask for help, you will find your intuitive self is there to restore your faith and teach you how to live with courage.

Our Host and Sponsor

We’re not like everyone else…

And neither are you.

Our approach is innovative. Our firm is boutique. Our team is outstanding.

WH Cornerstone Investments started our Rise Up Retreats in 2017 as a reinvention retreat for widows.

For the past two years, we’ve hosted over twenty woman at our Rise Up Retreats. Our first year was held at the stunning Mirbeau Inn and Spa, where we welcomed widows as they navigated their life after the loss of a spouse. Last year, like this year, we invited women who were experiencing a curve ball in their life: a divorce, a move, motherhood, widowhood, retirement…when life changes, you deserve a chance to regroup and RISE UP. The retreat attendees enjoyed world class accommodations at the Wequasett Resort and Golf Club.
