GOOD Escape - Austin, TX

Get away. Work on your passion project. Make new connections. Leave inspired.

Our retreats focus on creating memories - the adventurous, fun memories you’d expect from vacation, but also memories & skills that you can bring home to your personal wellness journey or career. You’ll leave with KNOWLEDGE and tools that you can incorporate into your everyday life.

Specifically in this retreat, we are focusing on finding your purpose. Have a business you want to rethink or grow? Have an idea you want to make a reality? We will gather together to support each other in creation. We will begin the weekend with a focus on “ME” and end it with a focus on “WE”, leaving with tangible steps to create the life and work you desire.

We believe in community, and we know how hard it can be to make meaningful connections as an adult. We work hard to foster a sense of unity throughout our time together, so that the bonds you form during your retreat can continue at home.
