Meet the Team

Catherine Kontos

Founder

Based in the Greater Montreal area where many consider the city to be Canada’s little Europe, Catherine built her retreat business a decade ago from a blank canvas. Since, she has explored every aspect of the retreat world and has helped plan for thousands of guests from around the world their memorable retreat experiences, all while consulting retreat venue owners on getting licensed with the local hospitality authorities by staging and designing retreats for the highest-quality consumer experience down to the last spoon. Her business strategies have resulted in a successful turnaround for the venues, where 85% capacity and a minimum of 4.5-star guest reviews became the norm. After years of coaching retreat leaders on creating profitable and transformational experiences, she has decided to pivot her teachings online.
Her kind approach with colleagues and partners creates a welcoming atmosphere where creativity blossoms and professional growth is enriched. Her philosophy is based on the premise that only through empowering one’s community, one will reach great professional achievements and personal fulfillment.
