This is not your typical retreat.

Although you will practice yoga, nourish your spiritual side, and enjoy delicious healthy food prepared by a private chef.

It's so much more.

Ascend is for the founder who is:

  • Doing things differently than those who came before her
  • Inspired to be on the leading edge of industry and society
  • Breaking free of any external or self-imposed limitations around who she can be
  • Calling in ever greater levels of wealth and abundance
  • Manifesting a life that is beyond the ordinary or mundane, a life that gives her goosebumps and would make her younger self proud
  • Deadset on leading from her heart and values– for herself, her business, and her community
  • Looking to find a community of other founders who are moving towards the same goals

Ascend is for you.

Transform your ability to:

  • Regulate your nervous system and emotions
  • Respond with intention rather than reacting to stimuli
  • Deepen connection and communication through building trust
  • Hold space for others  without “taking on” their feelings or reacting 
  • Influence groups and individuals as both a leader and participant

Embody leadership and justice

A love letter from Ashley Aarti, your retreat leader

Dear founder, 

If you have landed here, it is because you’re meant to. However far along you are in your tech journey, you are in a moment of ascension– stepping into the next-level-you as a founder, leader, and human being. You feel the call in your body and spirit and you’re ready. Ascend is here to support you.

This is a founders retreat for those of you who are doing things differently, and who are building your companies your way. Ascend is part of a vision for a new world order– one that honors the feminine as much as the masculine, where all voices are valued, and where wealth and power shift into the hands of people who lead not just for their own success, but for the greatest good of all.

To be the leader you imagine you can be is more than starting a company or assuming a new title. You are here to break the mold. You are here to re-define success and leadership for all of us. To do that requires that you are willing and brave enough to look within yourself and nurture your inner child, befriend your shadows, and take radical responsibility for how you show up in the world.

This is conscious calibration to the energetics of leadership. We don’t do it as the lone wolf anymore. We do it in community and we have fun.

See you soon, 

Ashley Aarti
