Attending a retreat? Here are some things you need to know. 


We are so happy to have you all join us for this amazing opportunity to learn!

Below is some general information about what you will need to pack and where you are going.

We need to know what time to expect you; so please send us your flight schedules and estimated arrival and departure times. 

If you are flying into Orlando or Tampa (or any other airport), please arrange your transportation from the airport to the hotels. Most often, people rent cars. You will need to get to/from the retreat every day and to/from the airport (if applicable).


There will be other participants renting cars so you may be able to share rides if you stay at the same hotel, but we cannot guarantee that. If you rent a car and want me to email all the participants or share your contact details to coordinate rideshares, please let me know.


If you need a shuttle from the airport check out: for Orlando and .

Please call the hotels directly to reserve your room through them rather than central reservations.: The Hilton Ocala, (352) 854-1400,The Holiday Inn Silver Springs, (352) 304-6111, and The Holiday Inn Ocala, (352) 629-9500. Please tell them you want to receive the Spirit2Spirit corporate rate and that you will be paying for the room. You are welcome to find your own accommodation selection, we just encourage participants to stay together so they can have that bonding time. We recommend arriving to your hotel the night before we begin since we will start first thing Thursday am. We will complete the intensive by 5pm. Since many people travel from out of state, they often book their flights to depart the day after the Intensive ends and stay close to the airport that night. We will expect your departure to be after the intensive completion, but you will need to coordinate your check out time with your hotel.
