Are you ready to renew, restore and replenish?

Join us on the beautiful island of Anguilla BWI for a transformative, exclusive retreat for women ready to release the "over" syndrome and to live and lead a more heart-centered, fulfilled life!

Meet the Founders

Carla Rotering and Rhonda Y. Williams

WE ARE your hosts, collaborators and facilitators for this transformative Everything Under the Sun immersive experience.  We come to this adventure as long time heartfelt friends & colleagues drawn together by our passionate commitment to uplifting the lives and hearts of the people we serve.  We step forward from a space of emotional safety, authentic caring, accumulated wisdom, ongoing lifelong self-actualization, growth and learning.  We share an unquenchable desire to inspire differences that last – for ourselves, one another, and everyone in the circle of caring.


WE ARE leaders, authors, facilitators, speakers, coaches, mentors, parents, travelers, and adventurers.  We are first, however, women.  We are professional women who found our way through the complexity of inner and outer expectations that bound us to limiting ways of doing and being that once diverted our time, diluted our attention and dulled our spirits.  Our ongoing growth and awareness has sparked our commitment to share what we have learned along the way through a powerful gathering that mirrors new understandings and transformations we ourselves experienced.

That journey has strengthened us at the core and has allowed us to collect our scattered energy and re-organized our lives with self-honoring purpose. At the core of that purpose is passing along what we have learned to other women committed to lifting above the fray for the sake of something better, something more graceful, something more aligned with our true inner values and yearnings.  We take a stand for women rising with authenticity, self-regard, abundance and success within a new paradigm of self-agency.

WE KNOW that when women gather with open hearts, curious minds, authenticity and a strong intention something emerges that is wise, creative, revealing, insightful and inspiring.  Collectively we transcend anything we might experience individually. 


WE DESIGNED this transformational retreat for YOU.  You are at the heart of our work,  Our intention is to support you in having and creating a life that you truly love! We come to you with open hearts, open minds, accumulated wisdom, humor, reflection, fun, good stories and other oddities! 


We invite your open heart, wise open mind, awareness, your true willingness to see something new and whatever oddities you have on offer!

Escape to Anguilla

Anguilla is simply magical – a sliver of land hosting 33 powdery, white pristine beaches surrounded by tranquil turquoise water with a vibe of easiness, relaxation, and awe. 

Sure – it is known as an exclusive preferred destination of the rich and famous.

Sure – it has been chosen as the #1 Island of the Caribbean, Bermuda and the Bahamas by Travel and Leisure Magazine year after year.

Sure – it is known as a “foodies” haven with culinary delights across the spanse of the island.

But it is the magic that draws people from across the globe back to this gem on the Caribbean sea over and over again – the magic that lives in the warmth of Anguillians (home to about 15,000 people), the charm of an island without casinos or cruise ships or shopping malls (somehow laid back and lots to do at the same time), the simple joy of music and kindness in the air (loveliest vibe ever). 

Anguilla is an intersection of the best of visible and invisible elements that soothe the spirit, spark the heart, settle the body and inspire the mind.

Come join the magic with us! Here are some links to explore:

The Transformative Experience

Everything Under the Sun

For Women Who Do Too Much

This is an invitation to keep COMING

(Not to keep Going!)

It is an invitation to Come here. 

Come into more.

Come into a space that helps clear the road ahead

So to see what life has to show you –

A few days of reclaiming your own life and the self you once knew by heart

and have been a little lonely for.

A chance to really notice whether life is living you

Or you are living life!

Come to Anguilla, stretch out your arms toward the sea

And breath in the freshness of a new place, new connections and

a new field of possibilities!

Our retreat headquarters is housed on beautiful Shoal Bay East, ranked often as the #1 beach in the Caribbean and as one of the top ten beaches of the world.  The sand is powder, the sea is calm, the breeze is soft and a walk down the beach in either direction brings you to restaurants, beach chairs, reefs to snorkel, fancy resorts, music (there’s some kind of music everywhere!), relaxation and merriment!  And if that isn’t quite enough – there are 33 magnificent and equally inviting beaches around the island, each with its own unique flavor, each easily reachable by vehicle.  The island itself is only 16 miles long and 3.5 miles wide – with a few little cays accessible by boat close by – every cay with its own unique offering for those in the mood! 

Each day of our time together is intentionally designed to provide a mix of focused group time and free time for rest, exploration and play.  We will create a safe container for growth and expansion through a varied daily retreat experience that includes energized learning, skill building, contemplation, deep inquiry,  experiential sessions, artistic expression, movement, facilitated conversations, large group sessions, small group sessions and playfulness!  We are pointed toward the kind of awareness that sparks a more balanced, sustainable, aligned, fulfilling experience of our daily lives when we return home.  This is a time in which we invoke change for the better – a transformation from the inside out!

We will have an opportunity to connect with the people of Anguilla and get a glimpse of the island through their eyes.  Be ready for some special time gathering with a group of Anguillian women who are leaders, creators, and pioneers.  We will introduce you to local musicians, artists, business owners and other lovely people who call Anguilla home.

Mostly this is a time dedicated to you – to placing your fingers on the pulse of your own life, checking your own vital signs, and recruiting your own inner intelligence and the collective wisdom of a small group of extraordinary women each for your own sake.  This is a time to place yourself at the center of your own attention and become your own best friend in service to your wellbeing, happiness, loving and further contribution to the greater good.  Our everyday world will go on for a few days as we come together to learn and grow, stir one another’s imaginations and possibilities, form friendships that last beyond these few days, and lift to a more unfettered altitude from which to continue to live and learn.

The Hotel Manoah

There is nothing here that you have to do!  Just show up with an open heart and an open mind and a willingness to lay your old ways at the door for a few days and see what ideas just might show up to sweep you off your feet.


This is a space of true connection, of creating ties that bind over time

Of harnessing the power and energy in a gathering of women

That will change us, each in our own way.

We can’t wait to walk this adventure with you!!
