With Voice and Communication Coach,
Elise Besler 

The RE-Sounding Woman Retreat

Summon your most confident and courageous voice at the ocean's edge.

"Elise helped me shift from a passive character in my life to a much more active one"

“I was able to let go of some of my fears around perfection or looking silly, and sink into what it meant to identify myself, my desires, and my goals. I highly recommend working with Elise if you struggle with communicating not only with others, but also with yourself.”

Nikki Rose Martin ~ Actor/Musician/Writer/Teacher

Shout it unapologetically from the rooftops Mama, dedicating time to your rest and your growth is of the utmost importance. 
YOU ~ Choosing yourself (yes, that is a MUST, here), to have YOUR needs taken care of for a long weekend in a cozy, spacious and luxe retreat space at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. 

YOU
~ Harnessing the ancient wisdom of your body and building trust to use your voice so you can stop over giving and overdelivering in your personal and professional life.
 
YOU ~ Prioritizing yourself, finding a little space between the busy to be nourished on a cellular and soul level, while you heal your beliefs about the power and purpose of your voice. 

YOU ~ and your most unshakeable truth, in a sacred circle of sisterhood. 

The vision for
RE-Sounding Woman ... 

What we WON'T do at RE-Sounding Woman...

Over-give,over-deliver, force what isn't there,
"do it wrong" (pssst... you can't), ignore our boundaries, do or say anything that doesn't feel 100% good in our bodies.

  • Daily time to BE with yourself; you'll tap into felt safety in your body, so you can use your voice to advocate for yourself with confidence. 

  • Daily time to BE witnessed; be held in a sacred circle of like-minded women, as you birth the next version of yourself. The Well-Boundaried-Woman version of yourself. 

  • Time to heal, be present and be gentle: to prioritized yourself over everyone else for once. (No apologizing necessary!) 

You'll make noise, your truth will take new shape.

You'll feel the magic of the ocean, taste the delight of hand made food.

We'll take care of literally everything else for you. 


Evolve into the next fully expressed version of yourself while being held in deep rest and nourishment for your soul.  

What you WILL do at RE-Sounding Woman...

She will help you embrace your truth, trust your voice, and feel safe to fully express Who You Are. 

Radical Supportress, Holder of Brave Spaces, Possibilitarian, Stage Fright Whisperer, and Relentless Believer In The Power Of Your Voice ...

About your Retreat Leader and Coach, Elise Besler

A little love note:

Dear One,

In the 20+ years I've been a Boundary and Communication Coach, I haven't met one woman that doesn't feel exhausted by the constant demands of personal life, career and the stress of living under a cultural and systemic narrative that our voices don't matter.

The truth? Speaking up for ourselves doesn't have to be as stressful and exhausting as it seems, and I'm here to help you embody the power and purpose of your truth.
 

Xo, Elise

“Elise’s last retreat in Hawaii was literally life-changing, and I came home with a clear path, a vision for my future, and the tools to make it happen.”

“Working with Elise has been transformative in more ways than I ever imagined. She has helped me understand and access the ancient wisdom that exists within my own body, allowing me to move through my days more ease-fully and navigate challenging relationships and conversations with compassion and calm. If you're stuck in "fight, flight, or freeze" and you're ready for a more serene and sustainable approach to life, then I highly recommend Elise as your gentle, insightful, and compassionate guide.”

Emily Reiner ~ Health Coach and Entrepreneur 

Holding your ground during hard conversations, so you can show up in your work and relationships KNOWING and expressing what you need and want!

Embodying the deeply important skill of not self-abandoning in the presence of toxic people, so you can stop giving away your power. 

Nourished on a SOUL LEVEL through connection in a sacred circle of like-minded women.

Have the tools and skills to honour YOURSELF in a culture that prioritizes people pleasing. 

at the end of this long weekend retreat you'll be:

You're ready to speak with confidence in your life and work - Period.

Getting to the retreat:

"I have no doubt that Elise could lead anyone through their limiting beliefs towards full body expression. Who wouldn’t want that?"

"Before working with Elise, something in my body or subconscious was holding me back - literally. My throat would often feel like it was closing in or blocked when I was talking. I had a call with Elise that was so transformational, it raised my awareness of my body wisdom and love for my whole self. Anyone on the fence about doing this work, DO IT!"

Stephanie Peters-Barlett 
Reconciliation Coach

YES! All food sensitivities, true allergies, and preferences will be honoured at meal and snack times. Please let us know on your registration form.

Connect with your soul's sound and unleash it to the world! 

"On the other side of working with elise, I feel much more connected to my body and capable of holding myself through triggering moments."

"Before working with Elise, I was looking for support with boundaries, speaking my truth, and grounding myself in my body during difficult conversations. 

Elise was compassionate and intentional as she guided me through new ways to process my emotions and nervous system responses.

The shifts I was able to make in a relatively short period of time have been profound."

~ Maya Angelou

"When you know you are of worth, you don't have to raise your voice, you don't have to become rude, you don't have to become vulgar; you just are. And you are like the sky is, as the air is, the same way water is wet. It doesn't have to protest"

What does your heart say about the prospect of being able to express yourself fully...

Let's check in...

Say hello to your uninhibited voice!

Say goodbye to tripping over your words or staying silent.... 

What's possible for you when you speak with confidence?
