Here is a retreat with a difference. The participants are all disillusioned, even burned out executives, needing to change their lives. The sponsoring company, The Legacy Process, based in Singapore, was started by a group of bankers and former bankers, and this workshop will take place on the Mornington Peninsula, Australia this August. Each participant will pay a cool $13,680 (the discount price) for the week-long retreat including meals, accommodations, psychotherapy, meditation and financial resource management. Here’s more information about this healing retreat for Australian businessmen from World News Report and PRNewswire-Asia.
This year, thousands of jaded executives will ponder the 10-million-dollar “What Should I Do With My Life” question against a high-stress backdrop of restructuring, global volatility and diminished bonuses. In response, enter The Legacy Process started by a group of bankers and ex-bankers, which aims to help individuals’ transition to a life of meaning by pursuing their passions and living sustainably.
“We can choose to do work which nourishes us rather than depleting our spirit. That is what The Legacy Process is about,” said Legacy Process Director, Mark Leahy, a veteran debt capital markets banker who also owns an organic micro-vineyard in rural Australia.
Guest speakers will share their own experiences of moving on from a purely corporate life to found charities, set up green businesses, explore and adventure.
“If you empower yourself to chase your dreams with passion and unleash your real energy, you really start living again, but more meaningfully. Speaking from personal experience, it’s an amazing discovery that is also very infectious!” said Legacy Process advisor Noor Quek, founder of NQ International Pte. Ltd. and President of Breast Cancer Foundation Singapore.

It seems like a good idea to me, and I wonder how many other retreat centers or spas offer workshops for people transitioning from one career to another. I suspect it would be a popular topic if the presenters could actually help these people sift gears, so the speak. I like the phrase on the website for The Legacy Process: “How do you want to be remembered?” I also like the fact that 10% of their profits go to charity.
