What People Are Saying

It's a Human Experience

The Vamonos Experience is a human experience. It gets you to your core and brings you back to life with clarity and purpose. The settings, the adventures, and the people are so amazing that you feel connected to the earth and to other humans. You feel whole and excited about your potential as an individual with this one precious life!

Tamara Baker, Environmental Permit Manager

A Different Kind of Professional Development Experience

If you are looking for a different kind of professional development experience than the usual 1:1 coaching regimen on Zoom, invest in the Vamonos Experience with Suzanne Roske and her team.  You’ll be immersed in a beautiful Mexican culture and surrounded by other high-powered, successful women who start out as complete strangers and become lifetime friends by week’s end. Embrace the challenge of going out of your comfort zone to push yourself to new heights – both literally and figuratively climbing mountains!  You won’t regret it, I promise.

I Am More Present Each Day!

My decision to join the Vamonos Experience ended up being a great one in helping me think about the next steps I want to take in my life. The backdrop of Oaxaca, Mexico, made it even more special as we ate, drank, learned, and explored our way through the immense cultural and natural wonders of the region. Authentic coaching experiences, facilitated by Suzanne Roske and her team, helped participants delve into personal aspects of themselves that can sometimes hold us back and sometimes set us free, allowing us to consider ways to achieve our innermost goals successfully.

A Wonderfully Difficult Week!

The Vamonos Experience was a wonderfully difficult week. Suzanne and Kimberly’s coaching environment provided plenty of time for introspection, feeling my feelings, and challenging myself. All the while, I was surrounded by delicious foods, natural beauty, and cultural experiences in Oaxaca, which I loved. I stepped out of my comfort zone, tuned out the voices in my head, and was able to truly hear myself and who I am meant to be.

Christine Wilson, founder and CEO of MtoM Consulting

I Stepped Out of My Comfort Zone and Said Yes!

When I boarded a plane to Oaxaca, Mexico, for the Vamonos Experience, I left behind my comfort zone. I didn’t say no; I said yes to crickets, ants, strangers, hard things, cacao, swinging bridges, laughter, and tears. I have spent the past 2ish years thinking about what’s next for me, but I kept coming up empty. I can’t say I know exactly what’s next, but I know that my shitty committee and my wisdom council are beginning to work better together, and that has allowed me to get into action.

More Than a Retreat

The Vamonos Experience has been purposefully crafted to create your personal transformation journey.

Over the course of seven days, you will slow down, reconnect with yourself, understand and overcome self-limiting behaviors, reflect on what is important to you, and create a vision for your next chapter.

We offer a one-of-a-kind opportunity to connect with nature, immerse in a new culture, and create deep connections with like-minded individuals.

Beyond an All-Inclusive Vacation

We know that it’s hard to implement a new way of being and realize your goals when the stressors and responsibilities of your day-to-day loom over your shoulders. The Vamonos Experience is your time to hear your inner voice, unlock your full potential, and create a path to the leadership and life you truly want to live.

  • Slow down & reconnect with your authentic self, values, purpose & motivators
  • Connect with your body and somatic responses through daily yoga, meditation & breath work

  • Define your vision of success
  • Challenge yourself & rediscover your courage with a hike in the mountain communities of the Sierra Norte
  • Experience Mexican & Zapotek traditions, including a Cacao Ceremony, a traditional Temezcal, & mezcal-tasting
  • Set your vision for the future with confidence & clarity

Whatever aspect of your life you want to transform,

this is your opportunity to create the change you truly desire.

How is the experience different than a vacation?

Unlike a vacation, the Vamonos Experience will require work that is deep and transformative. You will explore your views on success, what you want, and what may be holding you back right now. The experience will be lasting and transformative. You will return a better version of yourself. But like a vacation, you will have fun, make memories, see sites, and experience the rich culture of Oaxaca. It is the best of both worlds.

Why is there so much time on the back-end of the Experience?

I have been to many corporate retreats. I have done the trust fall, climbed the wall, walked on coals, and crossed the ropes course. They were always fun days, with great memories. But did I use those experiences to enhance my leadership skills? Nope, not once. I just didn’t have the time or know-how. The lessons learned in Oaxaca will be deep and meaningful. In order to figure out what to do with those lessons and how you want to integrate them into the leader that you are becoming, you need to make space for real-time reflection and integration.

Is the Experience safe?

The Vamonos Experience will partner with leaders in the adventure space in Oaxaca. We will leverage their knowledge of the terrain, communities, and region to manage risk. Of course, as with any hiking adventure, there are inherent risks, and you must consider your health and fitness level before embarking on the trip. Oaxaca is a city. And like cities across the world, there are good people and bad people. We will not take unnecessary risks as a group and I encourage our participants to use common sense as well. (i.e: don’t walk alone at night, don’t flash expensive electronics, jewelry, or other signs of wealth, etc.)

I have a question that isn’t addressed here. Is there someone I can speak to?

I can talk for hours about the benefits of coaching, both individual and team, and the transformative power of Oaxaca. The best way to find out if coaching or the Experience is a good fit is to book a discovery call. Be sure to include a bit of background on the nature of your question so I can address your needs, specifically.
