The Dunfanaghy Retreat was a life line.
Before the retreat I was in a rut both professionally and personally. I had tried many ways to move ahead with my work and life and just ended up with a bad case of information overload. There’s so much out there telling us who we should be, what we should be doing and what system we should be following to ‘succeed’. I’d had enough. I was sick of learning environments inside windowless rooms with artificial light and uncomfortable chairs, lead by teachers creating soulless experiences that got me nowhere. I was feeling pretty hopeless when I crossed paths with Megan Macedo.
By luck I heard her interviewing someone she had helped market their business. I was fascinated. Despite my disappointment with everything I had previously tired , I took the risk and signed up for her 21 day writing challenge.
The writing challenge was a hugely powerful experience with a number of us choosing to continue working with Megan at the Dunfanaghy Retreat 2018.
The Dunfanaghy Retreat is almost indescribable. But I will try. The learning room is full of natural light and the chairs like nothing else I’ve sat on in a classroom. The inspiring countryside is a second learning environment for the retreat and a big attraction. The people in our group, were a cohesive community from day one. (We still are today). The accommodation was homely and welcoming and just what was required to support our work together. Even the food was amazing and made up part of the whole wonderful experience.
If you are on a journey of self discovery either at a personal or business level Megan’s your girl. She is ultra smart, hugely empathetic and will help you articulate some truths about yourself and your work that will be have a huge impact on where you choose to go next.
At the retreat Megan provides a safe, soulful space to go exploring. I liken it to a treasure hunt for adults- loads of fun with the bonus of finding some hidden gems of self understanding and work direction.
The retreat gave me some concrete tools that have helped me learn about myself, what I may have to offer and how to successfully communicate my message to potential clients. It also helped me to begin to flourish is my personal life.
Seven or so months on, I have had two major breakthroughs that I directly attribute to attending the Dunfanaghy Retreat. My floundering eight year marriage is turning into something beautiful and I left my ‘job’ and began establishing my own business doing work that resonates with me.
At the retreat I was also able to declutter from my mind, much of the information overload that had been weighing me down.
Since the retreat I accept that the only way out of stagnation is to take the next step. At the retreat Megan’s methods gave me the confidence to take that next step and to keep taking the steps towards being myself in my life and my work.
Every now and then you come across someone who is the best in the business. So even if you are feeling fed up as I was, I encourage you to go to the Dunfanaghy Retreat. The power of the place and spending time with Megan and the group is likely to be just what you need to start gaining clarity and infusing meaning back into you life.
