In our Bold Journey Back to Joy... it’s time for our next-level experience together!
Join us for part guided Workshop, part unfettered time to simply be, rest and roam…
Come away feeling renewed, inspired, lighter, connected!
The Lighthouse, our gorgeous venue, is a short drive from Sedona and full of warm and inviting rooms intentionally designed with the harmony of Feng Shui. Enjoy the outdoors, too… Comforting courtyards, peaceful meditation gardens, lounges, restful pools and waterfalls… all in view of the Red Rocks of Sedona... aaahhh....
Our half-day, heart-centered Workshops ~
Outside our Workshops, time to roam and rest ~
Special announcement from Elaine ~
A lovely addition to our Retreat experience ... Sylvia Hebert, my friend and colleague, is joining us in Sedona! Sylvia will sometimes co-lead this Retreat with me, and at other times she'll support us with logistics and meals. We have co-led in the More To Life Program over time and I trust her heart, skill and sensibilities. I think you will resonate with her very quickly! We'll meet each other in our Enneagram Workshop on Zoom before the Retreat. (See more about Sylvia below).

Elaine Alpert, M.Ed
Elaine and Tom lost their bright, sensitive 16-year-old son Rand to suicide in 2004, on their younger son's 9th birthday. Within a few weeks Elaine met Iris Bolton, a leader in suicide prevention and aftercare and author of My Son, My Son, a book that has brought healing to those facing this tragedy for over 40 years. What a gift to know such a powerful and loving mentor so early in her grief!
Iris and Elaine became close friends which eventually led to co-presenting at national conferences. In 2016, Iris invited Elaine to create an online Companion Course to her latest book, Voices of Healing and Hope. This online interactive course, Pathway to Peace of Mind, is available to anyone struggling with loss by suicide. There is also a version available for mothers facing loss by overdose. The results have been impactful in many women's lives and now addtional programs for moms, wives and partners are available.
Elaine formed a nonprofit, MindPeace Miracles, and Iris joined the board. The mission is to support mothers and families who are facing significant loss with tool-based educational programs, to go beyond surviving to thriving by developing deep meaning, purpose, joy and gratitude for life once again. MindPeace Miracles accepts donations to offset program costs and to sponsor women into these programs who require financial assistance.
Elaine holds a graduate degree with specializations in Transformative Learning, Integrative Health and Trauma Healing. She wrote her thesis, ‘Fostering Resilience: Conscious Engagement with Life As It Is’ as academic groundwork for The MindPeace Method®, a proprietary educational program for personal and community healing when life becomes especially challenging.
She has been a certified Trainer for the More To Life Foundation for 20+ years, leading dynamic workshops and retreats internationally. Elaine is also a licensee of More To Life tools which form a core of The MindPeace Method®. In addition, this method draws from the fields of experiential education, leadership development, mindfulness, transpersonal psychology, mind/body medicine, neuroscience, energy psychology, indigenous practices, spirituality, and a broad range of the arts.
Elaine and Tom live in Atlanta GA, celebrating 33 years of marriage and have a 25-year-old son.
She is committed to the deeper dive, to receiving what Life is teaching us through the difficult, exhilarating, painful, and beautiful moments of our lives. She provides bold insights within a safe learning environment of creativity, connection, acceptance, and encouragement. Participants gain a toolbox of practices to become more real, more loving … more at peace in their own skin.
