The Exhilarating Retreat.


  • Southern Portugal (map)

A WEEK OF LEADERSHIP, COACHING, YOGA & NATURE IN SOUTHERN PORTUGAL.

CO-LEADERS: ARSENIA CORCOBA SANTAMARIA & ILSE NOPPEN
Certified Professional Co-Active Coaches & Leadership Creators.
International Coaching Federation (ICF) Credentialed Coach Members.

Ilse and Arsenia’s passion for facilitating self-transformation has led them to design a long weekend Retreat aimed at unleashing your inner leader.

They believe that you can create a life in which you use your talents and passions and act according to your authentic self and in line with your values, calling and purpose.

The Exhilarating Retreat will stimulate you to adopt this belief and take the steps to making it a reality in your life.

Through a mix of workshops, coaching, outdoor activities and free time for contemplation, your leaders will be the catalysts that will guide you:

- Gain clarity on who you are and what you stand for
- Connect with your inner leadership styles and strengths
- Become aware of your self-perceived limitations
- Be more focused on your goals
- Discover your capacity to stretch yourself in different circumstances and environments
- Create the impact you want to have and learn how to take responsibility for that impact in every aspect of your life

YOUR LEARNING WILL UNLEASH YOUR INNER LEADER AND BRING ABOUT PROFOUND CHANGES.

YOU WILL WALK AWAY:

- Connected to your core and potential
- Confident, centred and grounded
- Aware of your power
- Seeing new horizons
- Ready to express your leadership in your daily life
- Feeling connected to the other members of the Exhilarating community
- Bursting with energy and drive
- Equipped to start a new journey

THIS RETREAT WILL BE AN EXHILARATING LIFE-CHANGING EVENT. 
 

WHO IS THIS RETREAT FOR?

You want to have an impact and need to define how to shape it and show it. You want more, but need to put exact words on what that means.

You live such a busy life, it is hard to stop and think about what you want and to give yourself the time and attention you need. You want to focus on what you want to do, but it is simply not happening.

You have started your dream business but things are a bit more difficult than you expected. You are unsure of how to move forward. You need to rekindle clarity and confidence in yourself and your project.

You have an idea of something else you want to do (a project/writing/photography), but it is not coming together and you know you need to rethink your priorities.

You feel your life would be juicier if you could just show up more. Though on the right track, doing what you want, you are playing smaller than what does you justice. It is time to show up and shine, expressing your true colours and more.

You have a thriving business/are working with a good team but insecurity and lack of confidence are creeping in and you want to feel empowered again.

IF YOU RECOGNISE YOURSELF IN ANY OF THE ABOVE SITUATIONS, THEN THIS RETREAT IS FOR YOU. 
 

YOUR EXHILARATING RETREAT CO-CREATED
BY ARSENIA AND ILSE

Both your leaders are on exhilarating journeys of their own. This means that they are living the dynamics and challenges of inner-leadership daily. This not only gives them empathy but also the capacity to identify and relate to the myriad obstacles and rewards of working towards living an exhilarating life.

Together they have crafted an exciting and affordable retreat to share their expertise, experience and enthusiasm.

Ilse Noppen
Ilse's drive comes from her own transformative journey. In 2010, she took a decision to wind down all her existing contracts, dispose of a recently-renovated farmhouse and make a fresh start in Portugal, 2,000 km away.
Today, her career and leadership programmes help professionals who are tired of going around in circles build a life which makes a difference - one in harmony with their true self and purpose.
Ilse loves seeing people taking ownership of their future and realising whatever it is they visualise for themselves.

Arsenia Corcoba Santamaria
Arsenia is passionate about working with people who care about long-term success for themselves and society. Her creativity, multicultural background, powerful spirit and kendo experiences have boosted her approach in leading projects with different teams.
These have fostered her ability to connect people with their inner leadership and drive them to create powerful visions. She also coaches in four languages (ES, EN, NL & FR).
Cumulatively, this has led to the foundation of Tombo Coaching & Consulting and the Belgium Co-Active Community.

WHERE IS THE EXHILARATING RETREAT?

Ilse and Arsenia have taken care to find a magical place to host this retreat.
“Into the Wild Silence and Stars” is a unique spot of wild canopy and creek vistas and abundant wilderness silence. The quinta is nestled in the heart of a nature reserve sanctuary (wild deer and rare birds can be sighted). The Rota Vicentina hike and bike trail runs alongside the quinta. The buildings were reconstructed using adobe walls, cork insulation and local stone.
There are private suites facing sunrise (all have own shower, kitchenette and hammock), a community kitchen and social canteen, a panoramic roof terrace, meditation temple and a chill-out solarium.
