“Our words have power, but our actions shape our lives.”—Rachel Hollis

2020 Vision is a weekend retreat in the stunning and peaceful Outer Banks of North Carolina where you will have the opportunity to relax and unwind, connect in community with other women, and be guided through a series of conversations and activities to feel into your vision for 2020 (and the rest of your life), create a plan, and begin taking action to create your most aligned life.

It is our intention that you leave the retreat feeling grounded, connected, focused and clear, and armed with the skills to be the leader creating your life, instead of the victim at effect of your life.

The weekend will take a holistic approach to centering you in your life; through good nutrition, creative activities, conversation circles, daily movement, and time in nature we will create the space for you to be inspired, connect, and create momentum that will help you design a life based on your unique version of joy, peace, and prosperity.

Join us January 17-20 in duck, north car0lina

Your Facilitators:


Samantha Lock: Samantha is the owner of The Studio, Outer Banks, a non-traditional yoga studio that brings mindful movement and meditation practices into the lives of children and adults to help foster a balance between feeling good in the body & in the mind. She is also the founder and Executive Director of OBX GO FAR (Go Out For A Run), a local non-profit dedicated to fighting childhood obesity. For 22 years she has been passionate about educating children and families on how they can live healthier, more productive and inevitably happier lives. She loves inspiring others by creating non-traditional outlets for health and wellness, and you can often find her running about in the woods, making people do push-ups in the sand or playing red rover with a bunch of adults on the soccer field.

Mandy Sciacchitano is a certified life coach and breathwork facilitator who specializes in helping ambitious, high-achieving women create deep connection to self and community, eliminating self-doubt, serial striving and perfectionism along the way so that they can “level up” their lives and relationships. She loves cultivating communities and helping women “dive deep” with one another, letting their true selves shine through, mask free. She leads cacao ceremonies and breathwork circles in the L.A. area, and lights up talking about houseplants, her two kitties, and astrology.

Sam & Mandy became friends when Mandy sought community in Sam’s yoga studio during a summer living in the Outer Banks before moving to L.A. from New York. Their shared passion for wellness, philanthropy, and creating spaces for women to be in community and support one another in their growth kept them in contact despite the distance, and lead to this dream-come-true collaboration in a place that has been a lifelong sacred sanctuary for them both.

The Retreat Space

Located in Duck, North Carolina, about 1.5 hours from the Norfolk, Virginia airport, this 5-bedroom, 3-bath family beach cottage offers the perfect rustic + cozy setting for deep inner work, relaxation, and connection. A true embodiment of the vintage OBX aesthetic, the cottage offers sound-front water views and is just minutes from the wild horse reserve in Corolla. We will be serving up a menu of 3 healthy, balanced meals per day (with the exception of one dinner “out” on your own), as well as a variety of snacks, and will provide time for rest and relaxation in the retreat schedule.
