The Space

The Workshop will be held at The Hyatt Place in El Segundo minutes from the airport. Our room block offers a nice discount for all the rooms- and we encourage everyone, even locals, to stay at the hotel because of the early mornings and late nights.  We want you to have an easy experience that is also calming, renewing and allows for less outside “movement”. The space is going to be used for exercise, learning, meditation, interactive exercises and fun.

What's Included

We want to make this a transformative AND fun event for you that is easy to get to, fun to attend, comfortable, expansive, insightful, interesting, exciting, invigorating, relaxing, amazing, and so much more.

All Access to the 4-Day Event

This event is all about focusing on your health, life and vitality and releasing what blocks you in all areas of life.  While we may not be able to uncover all the blocks, we are sure to clear a few big ones that can allow you to move forward with your goals and desires. This is not a lecture type conference. You will be physically, emotionally and spiritually active all weekend.

For the first 30 people that sign up, you will also get access to the Virtual Ticket which will be video recordings and copies of all the materials digitally to review over and over again.  This is a $997 value!

Yummy Healthy Food

All food, drinks and snacks will be included for the event from Friday night to Sunday afternoon.  The food will be gluten free, dairy free, paleo, and keto along with some vegan options as well.

“We are here to awaken from the illusion of our separateness.”

Testimonials from ‘Releasing what weighs you down 2018’:


“I did not know what to expect from this experience – but I knew I had to attend for reasons beyond what I can effectively share. I LOVE goal setting and planning for the new year – and because I had just turned 50 when I attended this retreat, I was in a highly reflective place. JJ’s retreat was beyond amazing because the agenda covered many of the areas I needed to focus on in my life right now. And I was able to connect with amazing presenters and other participants who I will remember forever. I work in higher education, so I have both facilitated and participated in dozens of retreats in the past 25 years. This one…was the best. Without a doubt. Just GO. You will not be sorry.” Kris McPeak

JJ, Thank you again for offering the workshop of Releasing what weighs you down. I had major breakthroughs at the workshop. In the time that I attended the workshop, I felt I was in a safe place to open up and through the different methods and tools offered, I came to a deeper understanding of pain and shut doors I was guarding. After years of meditation, this workshop for me was worth years of therapy. I guess I was ready and thank you JJ for having the courage and stand in the gap to give this workshop! I felt that through your vulnerability you showed me to be vulnerable  is ok and honorable and feel safe. Thank you JJ.” Adrienne Blenderman

“This past year I have been on a journey dealing with a health issue regarding my thyroid and medications from my doctor. This journey led me to getting off my medications and going 100% holistic. I’m happy to say my body is healing and I’m learning to navigate a whole new world of gluten free and dairy free eating. When I heard about JJ’s retreat on “Releasing what weighs you down”, I thought wonderful……..what perfect timing! I love how things come to you when you’re ready for them.   The retreat exceeded my expectations.  I loved how it was so well rounded.  I learned about nutrition, fitness; moving my body in a whole new way, energy healing, astrology, how foods heal us, to creating a mantra unique for us. I learned so much, and took so many pearls away from this retreat. I highly recommend JJ’s retreats, and I’m already bought my ticket for her next one.  Thank you JJ for all your wisdom and inspiration.” Kristie Scott

“JJ is such an inspiration! She has so much knowledge and her passion shows thru! This retreat was just what i needed to reset and take action on what has been holding me back. She created a safe space where i felt i could be supported and not judged! All the speakers were fantastic and I loved the size of the group! Hearing everyone’s stories made me feel like i was not alone! I feel so greatful i was able to be around like minded people and create a new community and tribe. She even made sure all the food was organic, gluten and dairy free so we can feel our best throughout the weekend! I would highly recommend this to anyone who is ready to release whats no longer serving them and take charge of their life!” Elena Wilkie

“It’s hard to name just one take away! The first was feeling safe to be vulnerable in the space you created with all the people who attended. It was wonderful to meet such friendly, supportive, and like-minded people and be a part of that community for a weekend. It was unlike anything I’d ever been a part of before and opened my eyes to the need I have to create a similar tribe & space in my daily life. Thanks so much for hosting Releasing What Weighs You Down and for your continued support, you are very much appreciated.” Kara S.
