How does 'Prosperity Program' work?
We believe in lifting each other up through prosperity and joy. We pay you $100 for every person you bring to any retreat with Sacred Sojourn, regardless if you attend or not.
I want to join this retreat, but fear traveling alone...
Many people feel this way! As someone who has traveled the globe many times alone, I encourage others to connect with the teachings solo traveling can bring. It is an unforgettable ecstasy no one else can give you. Moments of solitude exploring faraway magical lands can lead to the sweetest moments in which we connect with our heart's truth.
If you wish to travel with someone, I can do my best to connect and coordinate you with another retreat guest.
