Welcome to TPG's For the Love of YOU Luxury Lifestyle Reboot!

No small talk! Sh*t is getting real this January in Napa. It's time to get away. It's time to ignore the aggressive ping of daily emails. It's time to start focusing on authentic face-to-face conversations - ones that make you ponder, make you dissatisfied, make you grateful, make you prickle, make you giggle. How? Join TPG in Meadowood this January 26-29 for our second luxury lifestyle reboot designed to help each of us dovetail our deepest intent into our long-term professional goals. We invite the smart, the irreverent, the funny, and the curious to un-plug, connect deeply, and take some intentionally selfish "me time."

There's a sea change happening in today's uber-connected world. Employees, colleagues, partners, and friends want more purpose, more daringness, less of the scarcity caused by our 24/7 bombardment of BS. Together we'll become Life Ninjas, our phrase for rad folks who live authentically and with clear direction. These three carefully curated days in Napa will include 1:1 private, personalized talent discovery and coaching with the handpicked experts who transformed last year's brave guests. The pre-online assessment work each attendee will be asked to do, along with the onsite evaluations, will help each of us cultivate tiny habits toward more intentional, focused versions of ourselves. Together, we'll also enjoy yoga instruction and micro meditations led by our master of breath-work-in-business. The food and wine experiences will send us into gastronomical orbit, and there will be plenty of time to chill out and enjoy deep-talk-jam-sessions with new friends. Add to this mix a group of truly inspirational Life Ninjas sharing their personal journeys, and you will experience that soul satisfying, self-shake-up you've been secretly craving.

Explore this website for complete details about this all-inclusive retreat, including our schedule, list of activities, resort information, attire suggestions, and driving directions. If this program entices you, please complete the registration form so we can confirm your attendance. We look forward to kicking 2017 in the booty with you in January!

Hotel Information

Opened in 1979 as the Napa Valley's first ultimate country resort, Meadowood offers the region's most robust collection of amenities and activities including croquet, hiking, swimming, fitness, spa, wine education and a Michelin Three-Star restaurant. Add to this the resort's oak tree lined hills and tucked-away walking paths, and you have a serene sense of pure luxury.

The cozy hillside cottages nestled in the native forest will be your retreat sanctuary for the next few days. Terraces and decks offer ideal settings for quiet contemplation and a place to replenish your nature deficit. Your room amenities include a California king bed, a wood-burning stove, a combo tub and shower along with an iron for your convenience. Check-in time is 4:00 pm and check out is 12:00 pm. Please note the resort does not have rooms with double beds; all rooms are king bedded. They do offer a king with a queen sofa bed combination or a roll-away option.

Complimentary high speed Wi-Fi (our latest add to Maslow's hierarchy of needs) and bottled waters are provided both in your sleeping room and throughout the estate. Go old school and enjoy the daily newspaper delivery to your guest room. It's included - as is self-parking, access to the fitness center, and onsite hiking trails. Fitness classes include Cardio Strength Training, Zumba, and more.

Debbie Parsons

Debbie Parsons - Own It Ninja
President TPG & For the Love of YOU Mastermind

Debbie is the President of TPG, an award-winning Bay Area event company. The idea for creating the For the Love of YOU lifestyle reboot series came to her during a client program. She saw her company creating ultra-personalized, once-in-a-lifetime events and decided to bring it to a micro level with people she wanted to learn and laugh with - people who want to "own it" and carve their own path. This latest venture is designed to create a tribe of like-minded individuals who are interested in pushing through barriers and getting sparked by meaningful connections (in a 5-star resort, of course!). Deb's passions include her family and friends, growing TPG, irreverent humor, love, travel, and yoga. During the retreat, she'll guide us on how she goes off grid, pushes herself daily, laughs from the belly, and strives to "own it" as a Life Ninja.

He'll also encourage us to celebrate the things that make us unique - also known as "strengths"," flaws", and "quirks". After personal assessments, we'll begin to see how our ambitions, strengths, and weaknesses need to be understood and shaped to achieve long-term goals. By the end of the retreat, each of us will have created our "intention-roadmap" toward a more purpose driven life.
