Liesel Albrecht

Liesel has been in the Retreat field for over 25 years – she would run retreats on weekends and holidays from being a social worker but the day she turned 40 she took off with her 7 and 12-year-old sons on their own Eat, Pray, Love pilgrimage around Asia for three months – just her, her two boys and a ton of luggage. This was after a marriage that ended that was filled with stress anger and addictions of her ex-husband, who then had a life-changing accident that saw him lose an arm.  

She came back from this knowing life had to change, but it still took about four years to have the courage to leave the only career she has ever known to create a community that changes lives every single day.
