Your Host

Ruby Maddox - Purpose Coach & Strategic Design Consultant

My first trip to Ghana in 2010 was truly transformational. I had never traveled outside the U.S. before and was completely blown away by the culture, the food, the music, and the people.

This experience also shifted my thinking. I realized I was so much more capable than I thought. I became someone who was open to new possibilities. I was more confident. I felt like I could take on the world. Most importantly, I stopped shrinking from my purpose and my vision. I realized that everything was possible and that I had the power to make my dreams come true.

This is what I want for you.

This retreat is designed to be a transformational opportunity that will shift your mindset and change your life. I want you to embrace your power and come away from this experience with a renewed sense of purpose, confidence, and possibility.
