Do you hear it?

The voice telling you to start something new?

The voice pushing you to explore the ‘What if…’?

The voice encouraging you to bring that three-year idea to life?

 

If YES, then join us in Portugal from May 8-13 to start your shift and gain clarity on your next move at the Wake Up and Wondershift Retreat!

 

Meet Judy Goldberg, the founder and CEO of Wondershift. She’s not just an experienced consultant and educator; she’s a living example of transformation and personal growth. And she will serve as your ultimate advisor and curator of your Wake Up and Wondershift retreat.

With over 30 years of experience, Judy is deeply passionate about partnering with individuals and teams to achieve personal and organizational shifts. She spends a great deal of time at the intersection of neuroscience and design thinking to unlock practical applications that can positively impact various aspects of life and business, from problem-solving to communication and resilience.

Judy’s story isn’t just about professional success. As a cancer survivor herself, she intimately understands the profound mental, physical, emotional, and financial transformation that accompanies this journey. She’s emerged from that experience with a resilience and belief that anything is possible when you have the right mindset, a vision, and a team of champions to hold you accountable.

As your Wake Up and Wondershift guide, Judy shares her experience, wisdom, coaching, and meticulously selected content to move you toward the shift you desire.

What happens when you wake up to really live the life you desire? The simple answer is…you will be in flow.  You will be comfortable in your own skin, your soul will shine, and you will wake up loving what you do, despite the obstacles that will naturally be presented along the way. Getting here takes work!

The starting point to achieve the shift you desire will take commitment, bravery, and an investment in yourself.  Join curious individuals in an authentic, personal, and unique experience that invites you to explore your senses, uncover your core values, rid the noise, and set your wonder in motion.

Each retreat guest will receive a Wake Up and Wondershift Journal that is designed with five specific themes to move you toward your shift.

SHAPE: Our mindset shapes our actions and determines outcomes.

HARMONY: When thoughts, words, and actions align, it fosters harmony and integrity in relationships with others and our inner selves.

IMAGINE: Imagination lets us think beyond our limits and envision possibilities.

FOCUS: Our attention is a powerful force that involves intention, concentration, and direction.

TEAM: Building the right tribe can accelerate growth and success.
