Since Feeling Is First presents an exclusive, interactive, invite-only weekend retreat at The Dutchess, a secret hotel built on 236 acres in Staatsburg, New York. Combining the aesthetic of a country estate with the vibe of a Tulum wellness retreat, the property and overall guest experience are both truly one-of-a-kind.
Our mission for this retreat is to create an experiential weekend for thought leaders, creatives and entrepreneurs. We want individuals to come together, #FeelTheirWay in a natural environment, get inspired, get involved and #FeelFuller, so that when they head home, they are ready to incite positive change in both themselves and their communities.
We want our guests to tap into their feelings, and more importantly get real while doing it. The goal is to have guests feel comfortable about sharing their entrepreneurial or personal hardships and dreams with like-minded individuals.
Post-trip they will return home feeling more connected with the environment, others, etc. and feel inspired to make impact in their micro or macro community.
