“The most powerful thing anyone can say to us, is what we say to ourselves”

- Christine D'Ercole

 

WHAT IS WordsWork?

Each WordsWork is an immersive multi-day retreat anchored in a series of Christine’s powerful story-telling and guided journaling workshops known as Wordshop. Each Wordshop™ within the retreat holds its own unique opportunities for self-discovery.

As there is tremendous potential to see ourselves and the world very differently when we step outside our familiar surroundings, WordsWork retreats take place in some of the most awe-inspiring, and emotionally moving locales around the globe. This is intended to support taking a deep dive into your inner dialogue and learning to hone the skills of listening and editing various aspects of our lives with vulnerability and curiosity.  

Through a very conscious combination of interwoven Wordshops™, and mindful activities, WordsWork retreats will help identify the narratives that are no longer serving you. Whether we are experiencing a journey to a grand vista on horseback, or simply feeling the warmth of a fire and the humbling wonder of the blanket of endless stars above, we will achieve and practice skills of being able to edit those negative narratives in real time.

You will leave the experience with a great command over the tools you’ve unearthed and invoked. You’ll be stronger in your practice of managing self-talk and confident in taking agency to awaken and transform your own story.

WHAT IF YOU CAN?

Established in 1919, and rich with history, C Lazy U ranch is a family-owned and authentic working horse ranch with over 200 horses who call this amazing property home. And no, that is not a typo...over 200 horses reside here in open pastures.

Situated on  8500acres of unforgettable 360 degree mountain views, and with only 38 Luxury Cabins;  this with be one of Christine's most secluded, intimate and memorable WordsWork retreat yet.

 

Only Guests staying at the ranch may access the property, and are also lucky enough to see what is called the "Jingle".  Each morning all  200horses are wrangled in from the fields into their corrals to be available for riding, to be fed and groomed, or to just simply admire their beauty.

Each evening all  200 horses are led back out to the rolling hills and pastures where they are free to roam.

In addition to horses, the ranch has nearly endless activities onsite that our attendees will have included access to:

 

Guided horseback rides, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, archery and hatchet-throwing, fat tire snow bikes, as well as ice skating and hockey on their frozen pond. Warm up by one of the many fireplaces around the property ; or take a dip in the hot tub after a work-out in the onsite gym. After dinner, grab a libation and head to play billiards in the Game Room.

 

The price for the above activities is included in your booking; and all you need to pack for these activities is yourself and winter attire!

Optional, add-on, activities such as on-property Snowmobiling*, nearby  World-Class Downhill Skiing and Snowboarding*,  are other fantastic ways to explore all of the splendor the Colorado Rocky Mountains have to offer. Or simply relax and add-on a massage or treatment at the onsite Spa*
