What Will it Cost?
Personally, I (Annie) hate having to scroll forever to find out how much something will cost or make a call just to find out. In the spirit of keeping things simple and being up front with you, here's the price for this life-changing experience:
Keep reading to see if this is right for you. You'll learn more about the experience, what's included, and all the amazing things that will come from sharing this experience with other badass women like yourself. <3
Is this You?
- You're ready to take your life to the next level, but don't know exactly what that looks like.
- You feel the pull of Life calling you to rise up and take your place at the table, but you’re afraid of showing up as your most authentic, awesome self because of how others might react.
- You’re ready for big growth, but you want an intentional group of women to connect with, who are doing the same work.
- You know you have amazing gifts to offer the world, but you’ve put your own dreams aside to take care of others.
- You are craving a change of scenery and time to reconnect with yourself and your passions.
- You’re a seeker. You have traveled before and had some great experiences, but you’re not just trying to tick off a list of countries or sights. You want to combine your love of travel with your desire to explore your inner world.
- You feel that burning deep in your chest that you’re here to change lives and make waves.
- You're ready to move past the limitations you’ve been bound by in the past.
- You want to experience and not just talk about reconnecting to yourself.
- You’re ready for an epic adventure, and want to share the experience with a group of strong, soulful women.
- You’re ready to step out of your comfort zone and give yourself the space and opportunity to grow.
- You want a unique experience you can’t find anywhere else.
If so, It’s time to press pause on the everyday and give yourself the opportunity to reflect and reconnect with your sense of purpose. You need the time and energy to create the life you want. The first step is to stop putting yourself last and say "yes" to what lights you up. This just might be the place for you!
The Journey of Courage & Compassion was designed for women like you to find the courage to push your comfort zone, the connections to support your dreams, and the compassion to see yourself and the world for all the awesomeness they contain.
Our Destination, Sarajevo
Sarajevo is where I go when I need to remember how to live.
This city is magic for the soul! Everything from the pace of life to the culture reminds me of what's really important - relationships and gratitude.
There's much to see an explore, so we'll be visiting some of the most iconic and profound places in the city:
- Walking tour so you can familiarize yourself with the history and layout of the city.
- Tunnel Museum which was used during the 90s conflict to get supplies from the free part of the country.
- Srebrenica Gallery gives a heartbreaking insight into the genocide that took place in the 90s.
- We'll hike the abandoned bobsled track from the 1984 Olympics. There are many layers to its story that we'll explore as we go.
- Bey's Mosque, built in 1531, serves as the main congregational mosque of the Islamic Community of Bosnia and Herzegovina and was the first mosque in the world to receive electric illumination!
You'll also have plenty of time to discover the wonders of Sarajevo at your leisure.

Things to Consider
With international travel there are always things that will surprise you when you arrive. Here are a few of the things you should be aware of before embarking on this adventure...
Indoor smoking is still totally a thing in Sarajevo. There are plenty of outdoor cafes and places to enjoy the fresh air, but this can be a surprise for some!
We're going to do A LOT of walking, some of it on uneven terrain. You should be comfortable walking at least 5 miles per day.
