Vision and Legacy Retreats

CEOs and Senior Directors who achieve success know first-hand about the personal and business benefits of organisational visioning and goal setting. Many, too, are ready to go beyond the limitations of standard 5-year thinking and dream even bigger dreams. Getting in touch with a more expansive vision, and creating an even richer personal legacy, revitalises and restores energy to the individual and the business. Yet opportunities – as well as practical tools and processes - to transcend ordinary visioning and re-orient to your deeper life’s purpose and meaning are rare.

Jessica Richards is facilitating another series of ‘Visions and Legacies’ Retreats in the inspirational and exclusive surroundings of Alladale, in the Scottish Highlands

Here are some comments following the last retreat:

Dear Jessica,

I just wanted to put in print how much I benefited from your spectacular retreat/seminar last week. Having taken retreats with Tony Robbins, Louise Hay, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Brandon Bays and others I feel qualified to say that I got so much more from your retreat and that the changes that occurred were absolutely deep and core changes. I credit this to you of course but also to the fact that the group was so small and perfectly selected. To be honest I was not sure about being in such a small group but on reflection it could not have been better.

I loved every minute and did not want it to end; I still miss it now as I write this. Having gone on retreats in Hawaii, Aspen, Cannes and Arizona, who would have thought that Alladale in Scotland would touch me, the most. You have a rare talent for picking the right people and the right venue and your material was outstanding. No matter how much I thanked you it would not be enough.
Yours sincerely and gratefully.

‘Jess has an amazing and incredible ability to put the right people together. And putting the right people together makes things happen. This is a mastermind group and things changed as a result of your work, not only what you do individually with people but as a collective group of people, we've blown air under each others wings in the last couple of days. I could quite happily have been here for a couple more days. I'm greatly moved by the changes I've seen in people. You're dealing with already very successful people and a 'top down influence'. Work at the top, that's where the world changes. You're in the right arena with the right people and we can make a difference. You unearthed something in people and I don't know anyone else who does that kind of work.’

I've been on a lot of courses and retreats and didn't know what to Expect on this one and I was absolutely blown away with it. I always looked at Robbins and thought that he is the master and what he doesn't know isn't worth knowing. Jessica's course was wonderful & I got completely different things from it. There are so many different avenues of learning but the main thing here for me was realisation of Groundhog Day and how to conquer it once & for all. The content has been amazing, absolutely amazing. I got so much from it and that alone is fantastic but then, on top of that the group has been such a warm & comfortable group to be in. It's felt so easy, so natural, it's gone too quick, I'm left hungry for more, it's been absolutely beautiful and a great credit to Jessica.’

Jessica, you should put the price up, you've heard the accolades. I've learnt a lot of things, not only from you Jessica, I didn't know you well before and it's given us a chance to take that extra step and I'm very happy with that relationship. I've learned about peer groups and their importance; we all bring our own agendas. It's been a very enjoyable experience and I would have stayed here longer. For you to have grounded me for 48 hours anyway is amazing. Congratulations on your first retreat here, it's been a great success. Thank you.

Your Visions and Legacies retreat was an inspirational and deeply moving event. In the immediate aftermath I was filled with a sense of the joy and possibilities of life. What seems even more important, though, is that some weeks on, after the euphoria of a wonderful workshop has subsided, I can say that it was a life-affirming, life-enriching experience. I'm full of admiration for the way in which you work; your ability to focus and clarify - to put "in a nutshell" words which express the feelings one has taken an age to explain. In just a few minutes you were able to help me, and other people within the group, uncover and positively confront deeply buried emotions and events, which we skilfully, if not consciously, may have kept from rising to the surface, even through years of psychotherapy. The way that you metaphorically "hold" people, with a combination of tenderness, care, directness and humour is a great skill. I think that holding the retreat at Alladale is perfect! The vast space, natural beauty and clean air; the ecological vision for the estate; the comfort of the lodge and friendly professionalism of the staff all felt to be in harmony with the work.
A huge and deep-felt thanks Jessica. It was a fantastic experience!

Dear Jessica

My time at Alladale has given me so much to take away with me. Firstly the regeneration programme has somewhat touched me and has changed the way I feel about the Earth. The work we did was so strong and has helped me massively on my own path towards peace and happiness. The people I met have become good friends and I feel will stay with me for a long, long time and for me that is a strong testament to the work I have done with you.

All I can say is that it was by far the best retreat, of any kind, that I have had the pleasure to be part of. I feel extremely privileged to have been part of your first of many. Thank you so much Jess for all your efforts and years of work that have come to fruition. Look forward to more of it.

Lots and lots of love.

Dear Jess

A big thank you for the amazing retreat held at Alladale! Being relatively new to the world of personal development seminars and sessions, I honestly didn't quite know what to expect (even though I had read the emails!) but went with an open mind and was rewarded even more than I dared hope. The powerful combination of your unique work approach, a select group of wonderfully warm and open people, and the beautiful and inspirational landscape all went toward making this a truly perspective-changing experience for me. Coming at a timely point in my life when I am at a professional and personal crossroads, I now feel more enlightened about the directions I want to take. I really didn't want the retreat to end! But I know that the positives and insights gained at Alladale will always be with me...
A thousand thank yous, and lots of love

"Jessica's retreat has left us inspired, changed and with a new outlook on
life. The location was stunning, our days full of fun, the food delicious
and the sessions revealing. We learnt a lot about ourselves and the way we
interact with others and the world around us.
An invaluable experience that I would repeat any time and recommend to
Thanks again, Jessica and Joanna"


We still quote you on the SFW and it seems very useful on many occasions :-)

As I said I would be very interested to learn more about your method so I'm
hoping that maybe you will have a training course at the Light Centre one

Hope to see you again soon,
much love,

Dear Jess & Joanna,

I just wanted to say thanks so much for a really fabulous few days, I got so much inspiration & clarity from your retreat & met some wonderful people. Isn’t it funny that the right people always seem to come together at the right time. To spend time in an environment with like minded aware people is a real gift, especially when it is run by yourself Jess. It’s been a truly nurturing of the soul weekend, thankyou

Love Pippa x
