2020 IS NOT CANCELLED

...but damn, if it hasn't been a doozy so far. 
RE: your brain this year
hi! I'm alexis— a positive psychology-certified coach + human pep talk— and I'm going to help you:
you_don't_need_rescuing.txt​

It’s not like you’ve been wallowing in a puddle of self-pity this year—you’ve already taken creative, adaptive action to make sense of it all. 

 

You’ve got a strong support system, flexible approach to problems, and great sense of humor. 

 

You don’t need rescuing.

 

You need resources. 

 

I mean. . . with the sheer volume of mental gymnastics, emergency self-care, and planning-adapting-cancelling you’ve been forced to do this year—

 

—Isn’t it about time you had some FUN again? 

take back 2020 is a virtual retreat for anyone who refuses to wait til' 2021 

to slay stress, find fun & get shit done.

August 28th - 30th, 2020
RE: not to be dramatic, but

👉🏿  You're reeling from this year's unexpected changes—but also, somehow, restless for more .

👉🏼  You have no idea what's going on in your brain 90% of the time—and really wish you did.

👉🏾  You’re craving community (and cringing at that buzzword).

 

👉🏻  You're ready to use your privilege & dollars to do some POSITIVE DAMAGE in this messed-up world.

👉🏽  You're tired of being tired—but ready & willing to do whatever it takes to transform the rest of 2020.

hi hello hey

DOES THIS SOUND LIKE YOU?

Alexis' workshop was phenomenal! Her scientific know-how is balanced with fascinating case studies and general hilarity...I left with the feeling that I could achieve my far-off dreams, and had a real plan in place to make it happen. 

—Meg Haverman | Portland, OR

Alexis Rockley (she/her) is a positive psychology-certified coach, published author, global speaker, and digital edu-tainer obsessed with helping you understand your brain—so you can like your life, master your money, and build your business.

 

She's the author of Find Your F*ckyeah: Stop Censoring Who You are and Discover What You Really Want (via Chronicle Books) and host of the voicemail-style podcast, Call Me When You Get This. Her work has been featured by Upworthy, SoulPancake, ATTN:, The Washington Post, and more. 

Forever curious, she earned her Specialization Certificate in Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania in early 2019, in a program led by one of modern psychology's heroes, Dr. Martin E.P. Seligman.

 

When she's not leading workshops for creatives and entrepreneurs all over the world, she can be found rescuing plants from Ikea and throwing one-woman dance parties in her kitchen.  

HEY! I'M ALEXIS.

and guess what?

YOUR TICKET MAKES AN IMPACT.

More than 20% of each ticket price will be DIRECTLY donated to The Loveland Foundation—a non-profit founded by public academic and antiracism educator, Rachel Cargle, that helps Black women & girls get the mental healthcare and therapy they deserve, totally cost-free. 

Yep, you read that correctly.

Not 2%. 

Not 10%. 

 

More than 20% of your ticket is directly donated to The Loveland Foundation.  

Your ticket makes an impact. 

help us reach our ambitious goal of raising $10,000 for Black women & girls!

WAIT, I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS

YEAH, I STILL HAVE MORE QUESTIONS

Can I buy a ticket to drop into a single session, or buy a day pass?


Nope! Here’s why: Each event + workshop builds on the information from the previous one. I’d be doing you a disservice by letting you “drop in” without the previous workshop’s knowledge—and it would create a disconnect in the group for multiple attendees to continue popping in and out (psst: we’re forming teams; y’all!)




Are there any deals or discounts I should know about?


Yep! As someone who has lived paycheck to paycheck for years at a time, it was important that I designed a life-changing event that still didn’t cost a penny more than absolutely necessary.
Here are three ways to get the biggest bang for your buck: The Early bird gets the worm (if the worm is a discount & secret surprise!) Here's the thing: these retreat tickets will sell out, and pricing will go up on August 17th. By paying in full, right now, you'll secure your spot at Take Back 2020, and the early bird price—and oh wait, what's this? A secret surprise gift in the mail, as a reward?! Get that surprise worm, early bird. Get it. Bring-A-Buddy, get a deal. Got a friend as hyped about taking back 2020 as you are? Perfect! The Bring-A-Buddy option secures TWO spots at $749 per person, saving you $100 each (for a total of $1,498)! Plus, you get a built-in accountabilibuddy through the retreat and beyond. The “Spread the Cost” Payment Plan.
Sometimes we’re just waiting for a paycheck to land in our accounts before we can invest in ourselves—thus, the payment plan. *cartwheels with relief* Secure your spot at this retreat (because it WILL sell out) with a deposit of half your ticket now ($449) and the other half in time for the retreat ($449 paid by August 24th). There’s just one caveat: this deposit is non-refundable. Cool? Cool. ____ Got more payment questions? Email me at [email protected] !




I want to use my privilege to help sponsor someone who couldn’t otherwise attend this retreat. How can I help?


Oh hey hi hello, I love you. You and your gigantic heart have two options: 1) Buy a Pay It Forward ticket, for $1,299. This option rules because you secure your spot at our retreat (yay!), $200 of this ticket STILL goes directly to The Loveland Foundation (hell yes!), ANNNNND an additional $450 of that ticket will go directly to sponsoring someone’s scholarship seat. Oh, and you ~might maybe definitely~ get a secret present from me in the mail, as a thank you. If just TWO people opt to buy Pay It Forward tickets, I can offer one full scholarship to someone in need! Can’t attend the retreat, but still want to help sponsor someone’s seat? Amazing. (Did I mention I love you?) 2) Email me directly at [[email protected]] to Sponsor-What-You-Can. Any funds contributed to our scholarship fund will go DIRECTLY to sponsoring people’s tickets. If we reach attendance capacity and there are scholarship funds leftover (this is unlikely) these funds will be DIRECTLY donated to the Loveland Foundation.




I enrolled in your “How to Stop Sabotaging Your Goals” free masterclass a while ago—are you covering the same material in one of our retreat workshops?


Our goal-related workshops are BRAND NEW—because there’s brand new science around setting goals and neural networks in the brain that I’m bursting at the seams to share!




I’ve got experience with positive psychology nerd (and/or read your book). Be honest: Is this material going to feel kind of...entry level to me?


Umm, first, THANK YOU for supporting my work and / or for pursuing such a cool branch of science! Second, Does any of the following sound overly familiar? [PS: NERD ALERT} Dr. Lisa Feldman Barrett, the interoceptive neural network, the body-balancing-budget; subliminal priming studies; Dr. Daniel Wegner, unconscious monitoring; visualization studies in athletes + college students; “action-repertoire chunking” in habit formation; the dorsal raphe nucleus & learned helplessness, etc etc.? If yes, then you could skip the retreat. (But also—don’t? Because it’s the application of this knowledge in real life that matters; not the theoretical stuff. Plus we’d love your giant brain and feedback in our group!)





JUST THE DETAILS, PLZ

Dates, Times , and Time Zone?


DATES: The 3-day weekend of Friday, Aug 28th through Sunday, Aug 30th, 2020. TIME ZONES: I’ll be hosting from Pacific Standard Time (PST), but all sessions will be recorded, in case you can’t make that time. SCHEDULE BREAKDOWN: Friday Aug 28th Session 1 | 11am PST / 2pm EST Session 2 | 3pm PST / 6pm EST Saturday Aug 29th Session 3 | 11am PST / 2pm EST Session 4 | 3pm PST / 6pm EST Sunday Aug 30th Session 5 | 11am PST / 2pm EST Session 6 | 3pm PST / 6pm EST For more details, jump to the full breakdown of our Itinerary, here.




Vibe?


Think...adult summer camp. Except virtual. And hosted by a positive psychology-certified coach who thinks in GIFs. OH, and with an epic, impact-driven fundraising goal. (We’re trying to raise $10K to give DIRECTLY to The Loveland Foundation, a non-profit that helps womxn of color—specifically, Black womxn & girls—get access to the mental healthcare & therapy they deserve, cost free)!




What if I can't make one (or any) of the live sessions? Will they be recorded?


Yep! All (6) sessions—including the retreat's exclusive workshops—will be recorded. You'll have password-only access to these replays—kinda like an online course at your fingertips— forever. And since we've all got different obligations, time zones, and lives to live, I've deliberately left "space" between each retreat day to allow plenty of time for you to watch the replays, complete your homework, and earn emoji trophies in our community group (which can win you huge prizes during our live sessions. Over $3700+ worth of prizes, to be more specific!). Joining us "live" will be the most fun and impactful way to experience Take Back 2020, but I've designed this virtual retreat with schedule flexibility and course longevity in mind!




Are you offering scholarships?


Yes! These scholarships will prioritize folks who self-identify as members of marginalized communities and/or who are dealing with financial hardship. Due to the intimate, very interactive nature of this retreat, scholarships seats are VERY limited (because tickets are, too). To apply for a scholarship seat, scroll all the way to the bottom of this webpage. To donate to our scholarship fund & help sponsor someone's seat, you can:
1) Buy a "Pay It Forward" Ticket ( jump to pricing here), or 2) If you can't attend our retreat but would still like to help us reach our scholarship + fundraising goal Email me directly at ([email protected]).




Price?


I kinda wanna brag to you about all the ridiculous-ness I'm packing into this three-day-weekend of a virtual retreat first, but... If you're someone who likes to jump directly to the price, I totally get it. If you can't stand the suspense, you can jump to pricing here. PSST: Pricing will go up August 17th, so don't sleep on this!

LOOKING FOR ANSWERS? HERE U GO

YEAH, I STILL HAVE MORE QUESTIONS

Can I buy a ticket to drop into a single session, or buy a day pass?


Nope! Here’s why: Each event + workshop builds on the information from the previous one. I’d be doing you a disservice by letting you “drop in” without the previous workshop’s knowledge—and it would create a disconnect in the group for multiple attendees to continue popping in and out (psst: we’re forming teams; y’all!)




Are there any deals or discounts I should know about?


Yep! As someone who has lived paycheck to paycheck for years at a time, it was important that I designed a life-changing event that still didn’t cost a penny more than absolutely necessary.
Here are three ways to get the biggest bang for your buck: The Early bird gets the worm (if the worm is a discount & secret surprise!)

I want to use my privilege to help sponsor someone who couldn’t otherwise attend this retreat. How can I help?


Oh hey hi hello, I love you. You and your gigantic heart have two options: 1) Buy a Pay It Forward ticket, for $1,299.

Due to the intimate, very interactive nature of this retreat, scholarships seats are VERY limited (because tickets are, too). To apply for a scholarship seat, scroll all the way to the bottom of this webpage. To donate to our scholarship fund & help sponsor someone's seat, you can:
1) Buy a "Pay It Forward" Ticket ( jump to pricing here), or 2) If you can't attend our retreat but would still like to help us reach our scholarship + fundraising goal Email me directly at ([email protected]).




Price?


I kinda wanna brag to you about all the ridiculous-ness I'm packing into this three-day-weekend of a virtual retreat first, but... If you're someone who likes to jump directly to the price, I totally get it. If you can't stand the suspense, you can jump to pricing here. PSST: Pricing will go up August 17th, so don't sleep on this!
