Alice Schaefer Retreat a Little

I'm Alice Schaefer

Everything we do at Retreat a Little follows these three fundamental principles:

Clarity    Connection    Empowerment

Living in a fast-paced world, we need opportunities to disconnect from the day to day, from the people and the stimulation around us, to connect back to ourselves, to connect to what is possible and gain clarity on what we want and need from life.

The principles of clarity, connection, and empowerment are derived from Alice’s passion for personal development, leadership, and what makes us happy and fulfilled as human beings and are intertwined into our mentoring programs, personalised coaching, and well-being retreats.

Some of our programs and retreats are exclusive to women to provide a safe space for transformation, unless specifically mentioned.

Prioritising self-care, to find that inner connection again is important to fulfil us as human beings. Because when we are fulfilled, we can show up differently in the world, with our partners and children, at work and with ourselves.

Self-care is important.

I believe that you can have a successful career, be a great partner, parent and still be connected to your inner-self but not if you don’t make time to recharge your internal batteries and listen to what your inner voice is telling you.

Client Testimonials

Annie H., SA

My weekend away in beautiful Port Elliot could not have come at a more opportune time. Slightly burnt out and tempted daily by an almost irrepressible urge to tell my customers where to go, the lure of a weekend away in a glorious old estate in quirky Port Elliot was just the ticket.
