You are a professional wonder woman who recognizes that you’ve dedicated your life to supporting others or living someone else’s dream.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to relinquish your cape, if only for a few days and join a group of fellow heroines for the adventure of a lifetime to reclaim your truth and finally live the life you were destined.
Before every life transition is an initiation, a call to step out of the familiar and into the unknown where our deepest aspirations have a chance to live
We’re honored to personally invite you on this four-day, self-exploration experience, EAT PRAY PROVENCE to:
Most people don't live 70-90 years, they live the same year 70-90 times because they keep making excuses for doing the same thing over and over again, and not living the life they want
If you are ready and willing to stop making excuses to live the life YOU desire and be known for the gifts, talents and passions that only YOU were destined to oﬀer ....
THEN THIS EXPERIENCE IS FOR YOU!
The most essential gift you can give to yourself and others is to live a fully empowered version of your true self
Because when you aren’t entirely true to yourself, you aren’t truly living
It starts by saying yes to you....
Until we say YES to investing in our greatest asset - ourselves, the life of simply existing, being busy and pursuing security will continue to be our default. Sure, it provides us with an illusion of security -- I am tackling life, I am staying on top of things, I'm surviving but it’s a false sense of self-assurance that never deeply fulfills. Sadly, we believe it’s the only path available to us. It isn’t!
The tricky thing about desire....
If the truth be told, at some point we’ve all been burned by desire. It’s the type of thing we can’t seem to live with or without. In the face of this quandary, most of us numb or distract ourselves, live by our logic or bury the whole question of:
• What do I truly desire?
• What’s possible for me at this life stage?
• What am I truly capable of achieving?
Over time we eventually put a safe distance between ourselves and desire because the pursuit of desire has caused us so much pain in the past. Only we know deep down that our hearts are restless, the clock is ticking or challenging circumstances are contributing to the urgency we feel around realizing our aspirations NOW versus someday.
All women live but not all live feeling fully alive
So how do we return to ourselves if we’ve buried our desires and quenched our feminine intuition?
The Cost of Not Living You Fully.....
A heartfelt question. What has it cost you to remain unfulfilled and disconnected from who you really are or your desires? What price are you paying for not knowing your purpose, not attaining your professional aspirations or not daring to create the business only you were destined to do? How is this impacting your personal relationships or your mental, emotional, financial, and even physical health? The truth is, most of us don't want to answer this question.....
The cumulative impact can be costly on all fronts but despite what you’ve been told, your problems, challenges and stresses – and their solutions – are not outside of yourself. The answer lies within …and is waiting to be uncovered! And therein lies your true power.
Kathleen made the decision to leave her corporate job after realizing her daily professional existence and commute were smothering her spirit and having a major impact on her health and relationships. Unfortunately we are not always able to recognize or hear our soul’s voice, but coaching with Sophia helped guide Kathleen into understanding her misalignment and brought clarity to her real desires in life. With her newly found knowledge, the Universe began conspiring to support her once she began a path of being truthful to herself. Previous challenges of finding the right corporate job were later seen and embraced as positive circumstances that were necessary to support Kathleen’s new visions and ultimately fulfill a dream of living abroad in France.
It was during Sophia’s visit to Kathleen in the Provence last year when the two had a mutual epiphany while standing in a sea of sunflowers. The plan: to create the type of total immersion experience for the soul and senses in an awe-inspiring environment that would allow women to connect to their truth, identify their core desires and overcome their inertia to take aligned action NOW– was born.
During Eat Pray Provence, Kathleen will be your onsite guide to the bounty of the land! Through daily excursions and delicious homemade meals, you will experience a sensory explosion into the history, beauty and traditional foods known to this region. Sophia will be your empowerment coach navigating your exploration-within through powerful, intimate, group-guided sessions, exercises, and morning meditations.
Your evenings will be spent basking in the candlelit villa or around the pool under the Provencal starlit skies.
Once our life experiences resonate with our innermost being of who we really are, we can finally feel the rapture of being alive

The truth is you have the same amount of time everyone else has. But perhaps you haven’t made yourself a priority. The question is does your life matter to YOU? If you have spent years living for everyone else (your family, partner, employer, your clients or your business), it might feel selfish to suddenly switch gears and make it about you. So, to avoid feeling selfish, we make it about not having the time. But when was the last time you invested time simply and completely in yourself? If you’re like most women juggling family, home and career, the answer is never.
It is also a trick of the ego to put off what we know deep down we desire to do today and project it someday in the future! If you become self-empowered, your ego mind loses its job and it doesn’t want that because it’s a protective mechanism.
Busyness has also become today’s badge of honor which has most women running around from sunup to sundown in pursuit of security. Eat Pray Provence is designed to take you from surviving to thriving by providing the space necessary to access the power and wisdom from your wounds.
The truth is, it’s never really about the money but the level of trust you have in making an investment in yourself. Many women will invest in a holiday for their family, or creating a website or in high-level business coaching because they believe in their family or put more value on their business or career. However, if this investment isn’t grounded in a belief in yourself or in alignment with your core desires and personal values, it almost never returns the ROI or ROY (return on yourself) you had hoped for.
Also, when we continue to deny our desires and dishonor our word to ourselves, we begin to develop a lack of self-trust. A lack of money is often the excuse we use to avoid making a decision, putting off what we desire to do today for someday in the future. But someday usually never comes.
It is never about the lack of resources but the willingness to be resourceful and setting a clear intention.
If Eat Pray Provence resonates with you, schedule a Dare to Desire Session with Sophia (a complimentary 30 min call) to determine if this experience is a good next step on your path. Never let money stand in the way of making a decision that could change the trajectory of your life. When you are fully aligned to your intentions and make a real decision, the Universe invariably rises up to support you. Email email@example.com to schedule your session today!
Our day-to-day environment is always reinforcing our inner reality and our sense of what’s possible. By taking yourself out of your everyday environment, you allow yourself to receive in new ways. We’ve created the perfect conditions in the heart of one of the world’s most celebrated regions for fine living to awaken you to what’s possible.
It’s been proven that acquiring more information doesn’t create real and lasting change. Journeys can be useful for initiating and sustaining life-transforming change because new experiences can impact us on a cellular level. Our Provence location is a perfect environment designed to support such pivotal changes.
Maybe you were looking for the quick fix, a distraction or trying to change your outer circumstances first which is where most women focus. Ultimately there are no one-and-done solutions. Life is a journey through which we self-evolve one step at a time. The next step in our evolution often presents itself as an opportunity for “more life, fuller expression, greater growth.” If you are resonating with this retreat, consider that this is the invitation in the next phase of your personal and professional growth.
So often we’re waiting for our outer conditions to change before we live our life. The truth is the inner conditions need to change first, Eat Pray Provence addresses what stops most women creating a life in alignment with themselves.
If you need support to make an empowered decision about whether this experience is fright for you, or have legitimate questions that are still unanswered. We invite you to schedule a no-obligation Dare to Desire Session with Sophia at firstname.lastname@example.org to support you making the best decision for you and address any questions you may have about the retreat.
"It’s no exaggeration to say that my coaching experience with Sophia was life changing. She was able to provide clarity and enlightenment in areas I didn’t even know existed. I highly recommend Sophia to anyone looking for life or career changes and the desire to realize those changes NOW!"

"Sophia has illuminated my thinking in so many areas that I could never have seen on my own, most notably the simple and surprising fact - that I was standing in the way of my own success. I would recommend Sophia to anyone who is committed to reinventing their personal and professional life, especially those who can no longer tolerate the pain of being in status quo."
- Lori P. (CA) Licensed Eesthetician & Coach in Training
"Working with Sophia helped me to laser-through the fog that prevented me from realizing my vision and gave me the professional jump start I needed. Her support allowed me to uncover my soul’s purpose where both passion and abundance live. I have finally connected the dots and reached the place I knew existed but had alluded me for so long."

So far, Sophia’s nine lives span 16 years in television, travel, fashion and growing her own boutique PR firm.

Her luxury coaching experiences guide women to look far beyond typical self-help techniques to search deep within for the answers. Employing a unique, honest, and impactful communication style, Sophia cuts through the noise and speaks directly to the heart of the issues that are keeping women from living in alignment with their true purpose and passions.
Sophia is also a globe-trotting, lifestyle and personal growth junkie who just happens to believe that her biggest blunders & enlightened moments can shave years off a woman’s personal and professional trajectory.
About Kathleen Obre
Kathleen is an east coast native, growing-up in Vermont and graduating with a degree in math at the University of Vermont. Filled by wanderlust and the desire to start anew, she moved to California living on the southern OC coast often referred to as the American Riviera.
After working 15 years in corporate professional jobs, she recognized that her heart was not following her path and that her priorities in life needed to be realigned. Searching for a more balanced and soul-filled lifestyle, when the opportunity to leap from corporate and move to France arose, Kathleen and her husband sold their Laguna Beach home, packed their bags and dogs and headed to Europe to begin a more inspired life in the French countryside.
Still living in Provence, Kathleen is enjoying a more enriched life, now building a footwear label with her husband, while engaging in newly found passions and sharing her new experiences through blogging, photography and cooking.
