Pocono Mountains, PA
Oct. 23 – Oct. 26 2023
Overnight only. Filling up fast — reserve now!
Our retreat in the Pocono mountains is this year's "luxury" retreat. In addition to stimulating conversation, expect a stay that will leave you feeling mentally and physically refreshed. 🧖♀️
GUEST SPEAKER: Kat is a (ridiculously) prolific writer of brilliant cultural criticism and co-host of the [Feminine Chaos](https://femchaospod.substack.com/) podcast with Phoebe Maltz Bovy. You can find her work in [Unherd](https://unherd.com/author/kat-rosenfield/) and [Tablet](https://www.tabletmag.com/contributors/kat-rosenfield), and she is the author of acclaimed novels “No One Will Miss Her” and “You Must Remember This.”
She will lead an informal discussion with retreat participants, and (if we don’t scare her away) she will hang out with us for dinner and into the evening. (Giving us all automatic cool-girl status of course.)
DETAILS & FAQs
Where is it?
A five-star hotel and resort approximately 100 miles from NYC and 140 miles from Philadelphia. Location details provided upon request.
When is it?
Attendees will arrive in the afternoon of Monday, October 23 and depart around noon on Thursday, October 26. All meals are included.
What is it exactly?
Think of this as an “ideas vacation,” maybe even a “sanity spa.” Think of it also as an extended dinner party, hosted by Meghan. An Unspeakeasy retreat is more than just workshops and mingling. It’s a series of conversations shaped around participants’ specific interests and knowledge bases. Guest speaker Kat Rosenfield will join us in person for one afternoon and evening.
Unspeakeasy retreats are small, with a maximum of fifteen participants. They are also unrecorded, off-the-record and (unless explicitly agreed to otherwise) free of social media. More information about retreats here.
What do we talk about?
Once the participant list is confirmed, Meghan will choose design a schedule of events that reflects attendees’ particular interests and areas of knowledge.
What will I take away?
For starters, a sense of solidarity and the feeling that you're not crazy. The ultimate takeaway would be tools and strategies for having honest, productive conversations with friends, colleagues and peers about any number of topics, especially those deemed taboo. Ideally, you will leave with a renewed confidence in your own sense of reality and ability to speak up. This can be applied in a leadership context as well as in everyday interactions. Plus, you’ll have a lot of new friends!
Accommodations and meals
The Lodge at Woodloch is a luxury resort. The retreat fee includes all meals and the use of fitness and pool facilities. Spa services are not included in the retreat fee, but we’ll leave plenty of room in the schedule for the self-care of your choosing.
