+ What does the registration fee include?

Absolutely everything but the airfare, transportation to + from airport, extra alcohol (wine and drinks provided at meal times) + personal snacks, and personal shopping. Click here for a detail of everything included.

+ How do I get there?

The best airport to fly into is John Wayne Airport (Airport code: SNA). You can also fly into Los Angeles (LAX) + drive in. John Wayne airport is just a short Uber drive from the resort. A car rental is really not necessary for the area.

+ What should I bring?

Bring light, casual attire, a bathing suit, beach cover-up + a sun hat. Meals will be casual so bring what you feel most comfortable in. Casual dresses or lightweigh linen jumpsuits are perfect. We will provide yoga mats, suntan lotion + towels for the pool, so don’t worry about packing that. We want you to be comfortable + feel good!

+ What is the weather like that time of year?

The weather in Laguna is beautiful year round with mostly sunny skies and very little rain. The average high for April and May is low 70's, but the sun is strong. It does get cooler in the evening so be prepared for that.

+ What if I have special diet restrictions?

No problem at all! Just alert us of your diet + we will have special meals prepared for you. Chef Leo at Hotel Joaquin is absolutley amazing!

+ How many attendees will be there?

In order to keep the retreat intimate + manageable, we have limited the retreat to 14 attendees.

+ What types of businesses will the attendees own?

We envision we will have women from all different fields of the creative event industry. Expect to meet floral designers, event planners, interior designers, photographers, shop owners + more!

+ Can I secure my own accommodations?

Because this is an all-inclusive retreat, all retreat guests are required to stay at the resort to participate in all activities at special negotiated rates. Our negotiated rates will be available 3 days post retreat should you wish to extend your stay.

+ Is Nourish a good choice for me?

If you are a creative entrepreneurial mama who is looking to connect with other like minded women in a safe and nurturing environment then Nourish is perfect for you. If you would like some additional information please feel free to email us at

+ Can I bring my children with me?

We know you love your little ones and we do too! But….. This is a time for you to recharge and reconnect with yourself. Because of this reason we have made Nourish a child-free retreat. Let’s be honest, it’s not really a retreat if our kids are there with us.

+ Can my husband or partner come with me?

This is the first year that we have decided to leave the men at home. We are looking forward to our girl time in Laguan Beach! You are however welcome to bring a girl friend, colleuge, sister, mom or aunt with you. There is an increased registration fee (+$950) for attendees bringing a plus one. This fee covers additional resort fees, meals and activities. Please choose “you + one” at registration for this option. Please note... Hotel Joaquin only has King rooms so make sure you feel comfortable sharing a bed with your plus one.

+ Will there be another Nourish retreat?

Yes! We hope to run a retreat each calendar year in different locations.

+ Do you offer a payment plan?

Yes, we offer a payment plan! You will see information for this option on the registration page.

+ What is your cancellation policy?

Unfortunately, due to the logistics involved with hosting an all-inclusive retreat we will be unable to offer refunds once a spot is secured. We can however transfer the seat to another individual if there is a wait list, or if you have someone interested in purchasing your seat, you can sell your seat with prior approval from the Nourish team.
