Join Us In Loretto! - Mentoress Collective

Join Us In Loretto!

It’s time to take a break from it all… from work, clients, home, and from all the chaos attached to them.

That’s why the Mentoress Collective is headed for Loretto, KY.  After a popular vote, we’ve settled on Friday afternoon September 2nd to Wednesday, September 7th at noon for this year’s retreat.

We will be at the Loretto Retreat Center, a beautiful 788-acre farm with small lakes, walking paths, a walkable labyrinth, and wooded areas to explore. You can fly in – Louisville is your closest airport – or you can drive through the bluegrass and Appalachian foothills of Route 52 to arrive at your leisure.

Founded by women, for women all the way back in 1812, the Loretto community is the perfect place for peace and quiet reflection… the wi-fi is weak, the cell service is spotty, and the nearest Starbucks is 28 minutes away (although the Marker’s Mark bourbon distillery is right across the road and gives amazing tasting tours).



The scenery you’ll find at Loretto – gorgeous!

Join us and here’s what you can expect:

    • Peace, quiet, and the chance to rejuvenate your soul
    • A simple room with a basic bed
    • Lunch, the bigger meal at the Loretto community, will be provided from the Motherhouse Kitchen.
    • A simple catered dinner together in our retreat house…
    • Days that are wide open for personal contemplation, meditation, reading, journaling, sleeping, swimming, long walks, or whatever else strikes you
    • A nightly circle in the evening with all the women together. We’ll do a fast write, have a conversation about topics related to women in business, and follow up with a happy hour.

And here’s what you will NOT find at this retreat:

    • Days filled with workshops and power point presentations (relax and enjoy the downtime)
    • Luxury accommodations (sorry, no swim up bar or hot tub)
    • A bathroom to call your own (think shared full bath or dormitory-style bathroom)
    • Fancy food  or special food requests (no caviar or duck breast medallions, or all vegan options)
    • A pool, gym or spa (sorry, you’ll have to do your own nails!) (Note: For those of you who enjoyed the pool the last time, JoAnn regrets to tell us the pool is now permanently closed.)

Ladies, this is not Survivor. But it is also not the Ritz-Carlton!

If some daily quiet time combined with community time in the evenings, surrounded by a beautiful natural setting miles from your day-to-day life and the world in general sounds exactly like the break you need right now…

Come to Loretto so you can enjoy an experience like these women did at our retreat in 2019…


“It truly was a retreat–getting away from noise, clutter, cell signal. I’m grateful for what it was, and for what it was not. If I’d had an assortment of spa treatments to choose from or activities to do, I would have kept myself busy. And “busy” is most definitely not what I needed. The humble surroundings and company of thoughtful women was perfect.” – Kristen Stelzer


“It was an amazing week! Restoring for the mind and the soul. I’m already looking forward to the next one.” – Chris Allsop


“It was such a wonderful week! Rest, relaxation, and the company of amazing women. I am so grateful. I’m missing the quiet already.” – Denise Millet

To join us there is just one requirement you must meet. With all due respect to persons who cannot or choose to not be vaccinated, the Sisters of Loretto are only able to host fully-vaccinated persons at this time.

If you meet this one requirement, don’t delay because space is limited — we only have 13 spots open — and we’re doing this on a first-come, first-served basis.

The full price of the retreat (including your room, two meals a day, and evening mentoring circle) is $1200.

Since the retreat is not until September, we’ve set up an easy payment plan. You can cover this great price of 6 days and 5 nights in the beautiful Loretto community in four modest installments.

All it takes to secure your bit of peace and tranquility today is a non-refundable deposit of $300. 

You’ll be invoiced for the remaining three payments of $300 over the next three months 

Now, Senior Members, of course, are entitled to a generous discount.

Senior Members save 20%. So, don’t forget to use the discount code you received in your email invitation to lock in your discount and pay just $960 for peace, quiet, renewal, and community.

Not yet a member? You can join the Mentoress Collective today (right here) to get in on the senior members-only discount.

We look forward to seeing you in Loretto!
