Chicago: 2-Day Choose Happiness Retreat

  • Wicker Park Chicago, IL (map)


We adore Chicago and can’t wait to meet you there! We will gather in the most amazing apartment in Wicker Park. It’s a brand new, modern, two-story apartment in a converted 100 year-old church. Plan on 35 ft. ceilings, stained glass (!), collectible design pieces and furniture, and gorgeous woodwork. The duplex itself is on the quiet side of Wicker Park and in a historic row of turn-of-the-century Victorian townhouses. Wicker Park is known as the hipster mecca in the Midwest. People love it for its galleries, music venues, boutiques, and food options.


-All workshops & activities on June 2 & 3 (Tues. & Wed.), 9:00 am - 5:00 pm each day (overnight not included, but see add-on option below.)
-Raw/Organic Green Juice each morning provided by Green Corner, a juicery owned by two sisters.
-Healthy catered lunches by: El Mexican (with sustainable and responsibly farmed meat and local produce from bio diverse family farms) and Big Delicious Planet (“The greenest caterer in America.” They have their own urban farm and 2 beehives!)
-Delicious afternoon cakes provided by The Chicago Diner (vegan!)
-A Love Tote Bag designed by Linsey Laidlaw, containing a few of my favorite things (including some natural beauty products, of course!) A HUGE thanks so far to: Simpalee (artisan handmade bath products), Colby Sanford (he's drawing a custom print for the event!), Acure OrganicsUdi's, and Glutino.
