Fuel Your Passion for Coaching at Our Refreshing Event in the Rockies

We heard you! Based on your feedback, we’re focusing this year’s Ignite event on networking and growing alongside your Lumia family, helping you continue your personal journey as a coach, and enhancing your self-care skills as you coach others. 

You’ll Walk Away With…

New coaching skills and techniques to take you to the next level in your practice, broadening your horizons and refreshing your spirit

Deeper connections to others to give you strength — a community of real people to lean on as you make forward progress as a coach

Insights and knowledge to give you an edge as a coach and the confidence to perform at your best in your personal and professional life

Meet Us in Boulder!

This year, we’re meeting up in beautiful Boulder, CO, which sits at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. It’s a well-appointed place for a one-of-a-kind experience. (You may even want to extend your stay a couple days!)

“​​I came in with powerful intentions and came out with powerful insights. I see my investment and outcomes in the new friendships I formed, in the in-person energy exchanges, in the small nuggets of valuable information from workshop facilitators and other coaches, through personal conversations, and from the confidence I gained in myself and my business approach!”

What You’ll Learn: Speakers & Breakout Sessions

Discover our exciting lineup of speakers and what they’ll be teaching during our retreat this year.

Saturday Morning Sessions

Visualizing & Storytelling your Brand
Joyce Chen

Creating your brand strategy through words is an important step in establishing your vision as a coach. Being able to visually imagine your brand and bring it to life through key visuals and story is equally as important to help you create the narrative around your personal brand and self. Through this workshop, we will explore ways and mediums to help you envision your brand through words and visuals and also learn a verbal framework of how to communicate who you are and how you serve others through your coaching practice. This workshop will build on fundamentals learned in Lumia essentials and will complement the "Brand on a Page" Worksheet provided through the curriculum.

Weaving Multiple Modalities Into Your Coaching Practice
Chris Clark, ACC

What’s your secret sauce as a coach? In this session, we’ll explore how to differentiate your coaching practice with skills and expertise from other disciplines. Let’s talk about what sets you apart, ways to define your scope of practice, and how you can introduce other modalities into a coaching session while remaining compliant with the ICF (if that’s your aim!).

Co-Creating Coachable Agendas & Agreements that Move Clients Forward
Bonnie Stith, PCC

In this session, Bonnie will demonstrate how to work with clients to co-create a coachable and narrow agreement with outcomes and measures that create action steps to move the client forward. Attendees will have the opportunity to practice this skill during the session for better understanding and application.

Saturday Afternoon Sessions

Master Your Mind With Your Body: Nervous system regulation for coaches
Pam Covarrubias

Join Pam Covarrubias in a powerful workshop where she guides you through the intersection of nervous system regulation, business, and coaching. You will learn how to use Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) to support yourself as a coach, along with Pam's proprietary THRIVE framework, which can help you build a supportive coaching practice. Discover how understanding and regulating your nervous system can improve your productivity, decision-making, and overall well-being in both your personal and professional life. These valuable tools will provide insights to enhance your business and create a more fulfilling and harmonious life experience.

How to Build Coaching Spaces that Promote Belonging
Khary Hornsby

Have you ever left a client interaction feeling as if you failed to authentically connect despite your best efforts to do so? We all have... And the most frustrating part can be that we often leave these interactions not knowing how things went astray or what corrective, future action to take. In this session we'll explore some of the dominant cultural value systems at play in individual and group coaching spaces (spoiler alert: most of them are unconscious!) and how learning a few, simple frameworks can help us more authentically connect in our client and personal relationships.

How To Use Social Media to Build Your Practice
John Kim, LMFT

In this session, you will discuss how to turn social media into a lifestyle to boost and build your coaching practice while doing it. 

Through group discussion and storytelling, you’ll learn how to turn cold audiences to warm, why you should be documenting instead of producing, and trying everything before you judge it, all for bigger impact in your online presence. 

Saturday Keynote

Industry Growth and Humanism in Coaching - Keynote
Noelle Cordeaux, PCC

Get inspired with Lumia CEO & Co-founder Noelle Cordeaux as she offers a high-level perspective on coaching industry updates, growth opportunities, and the importance of humanism in coaching.

Sunday Sessions

Alumni Sessions

Learn from your Lumia peers in Sunday’s Alumni Breakout Sessions! Alumni will have the chance to share their expertise and niche specialties through featured sessions led by Lumia Coach Alumni that will be selected through an application process coming this Summer. Session details and Alumni presenters will be selected soon!

Sunday Keynote

Inspiration into Action - Keynote
Deanna Moffitt, ACC

In the final capstone event of the retreat, Deanna will create a space for reflection, discussion, and inspiration to help you realize the power of commitment, what confidence really is, and the importance of a community. You'll leave this session excited to take the next steps toward your future self.

“Lumia's 2022 Homecoming [Retreat] was just that. I truly felt as if I were coming home. Interesting, being relatively new to Lumia's coaching community, the energy that was present and experienced as I entered the first and subsequent events made me feel as if I'd been part of this community for years. The learnings, networking and most importantly, sense of belonging that I experienced was invaluable. Attending last year's event was literally life changing for me, as I knew as the last hour closed with such an amazing group of humans, that my career and personal trajectory would soon change. It did. I am better for it.”

 - 2022 Retreat Attendee

“There's nothing quite like experiencing the Lumia community in person. The energy is palpable and invigorating. It's like no other group I've participated in - there's a depth and open-heartedness here that's magical and rare. I always come away inspired, and armed with new ideas, connections, and information to enhance my coaching practice.”

Unique Highlights of Boulder, Colorado

We’re excited to enjoy the beauty and unique features of Boulder, CO! We’ll have a few activities integrated into our weekend, but we encourage you to explore the city and surroundings in your free time. Here are a few highlights:

#1 - Flagstaff Mountain.

Flagstaff Mountain is an excellent place to get in a hike and take in the scenic natural views that Boulder has to offer. The 2.1 mile loop is accessible for people of all hiking abilities. You can also dress up and have a nice dinner at Flagstaff House, which features New American cuisine and a world-renowned wine list.

#2 - The Pearl Street Mall

At the colorful Pearl Street Mall, you can eat, drink, shop, and people-watch in the heart of downtown Boulder. It’s a favorite of locals and tourists alike, offering a taste of the town, eclectic dining, and souvenirs.

#3 - Boulder Creek

If it’s warm enough, you might want to go tubing down Boulder Creek — a favorite local activity. You can also cycle or walk down the 5.5 mile creek path and then relax and eat your fill at one of the many restaurants nearby.

The stories, faces, and experience of the community come to life is fuel for the year ahead for all of us at Lumia.
