The Real You VIP Retreat 


May 6 - 10, 2019 on the beautiful Dutch island Schiermonnikoog  

Imagine this

Four magical days on the quiet Dutch island Schiermonnikoog.

The sound of the waves, the beach, impressive skies, bicycles, a hand on your shoulder, the wind playing with your hair, a deeply profound insight, the feeling you're completely in touch with your calling, lovely food, your feet in the sand, a circle of friends, a glass of Prosecco, silence, laughter, you and 9 other women, a note book filled with ideas - ready to be implemented.  

Welcome to the All-Inclusive Real You Sisterhood retreat
with Esther de Charon de Saint Germain.


Apply BEFORE APRIL 4, 2019

You and an intimate group of 9 female entrepreneurs. Joined by the desire to step into your greatness and use that as the main attraction factor in your business.

All you have to do is get on the Ferry. On the island a taxi awaits you. It will take you to your shared apartment - 250 meter from the sea. Your own bicycle is already waiting for you at your apartment.

You cycle 1,5 minutes to the Most beautiful Villa on the island where I wait for you with a glass of Prosecco. If the weather is good we might even have a little beach party! (bring a warm sweater!)

For 4 days we work in sessions. Finding your authentic brand, your soul clients, your offerings and the effective aligned marketing that brings in more clients and more money.

We work with ease. Light. No pushing or pulling. I make a sacred space for you where The Real You can show itself. You will be connected to your authentic power.

I'm going to support you to let go of old layers that stand between 'the urge to hide the best of you', so you become 'a visible magnet for your clients'.


The outcome of the Real You Retreat: 

You go home with a fully aligned personal brand that takes guessing, doubting and feeling small out of your business. 

You will know what your unique gift is worth. You know how to leverage your worth as the main attraction-factor in your business. You can communicate with your audience from your heart. 

Crystal clear clarity, profound self-love, and the ease that leads to clients, money, and impact.

The VIP Real You Retreat is completely different because:

In this retreat you uncover your Real You. Meaning: you stop playing small or downsizing your unique gifts and we base your personal brand on who you Really Are.

You are being lead by the magic of soul whispers visualisations and  my extensive knowledge of personal branding, marketing and positioning. 

After the Real You you can communicate with your clients and audience from your heart,  without disguise. Enter ease and real results!

The exact moment you experience that you are powerful, lovable, and unique, clients, money and impact will come.

The Gift of Time

Many of my clients need time to process. That's why we there's ample time for you to walk on the beach. Look over the sea and feel the power of the incredible nature all around you.

You can go for a bike ride, retreat to your own room, or have cappuccino in one of the restaurants in the village. 

The schedule of The Real You Retreat

The first part of the retreat is all about you getting in touch with the Real You.

In the second part we shift to the practical part of personal branding. The focus is not on Facebook ads, funnels or blogpost, but on 'How you make your clients feel' and how you can leverage that in a way that speaks directly to the hearts - and action - of your clients.

We focus on your special energy : how can I communicate with my audience so they hear what I say or experience when they read my blogposts.

You become fully aligned with your services or products, and sell straight from your heart!

My name is Esther de Charon de Saint Germain:

I am the Personal Branding Queen with the gift to communicate directly to your wisdom soul. I am the leader of the Wonderfully Weird movement and author of 'The Wonderfully Weird Woman's Manual'.

I know what it feels like to not clearly understand  how amazing and unique you are.

I know intimately how it feels to shrink yourself into invisibility.  I've tried to fit in and dimmed my real light. I was afraid that people would think I was just some random weirdo! Someone you didn't take serious!

Mind you! I was afraid of that even with my 25+ years experience in Branding, Strategy, Consultancy and Design where I worked with Big Brands like ING Bank, KLM, Staatsbosbeheer,  Boskalis. 

I embraced my uniqueness, combined this with my skills, founded the Wonderfully Weird movement and voila.... here we are!

My mission is to support high-achieving ambitious wonderfully weird female entrepreneurs - including you! - to leverage your uniqueness as the source of your business success and  your happiness. 

My zone of genius is that I can see you. I see the Real You. I see your true power through all the layers. This gift allows me to work fast and effective.

Is that what you want?

Out with the struggle. In with flow, alignments and ease. Transformation starts here!

I create the space for you where your answers will come and connect to who you really are.

"Esther gave me the answers to questions I didn't even know I had."

Schiermonnikoog is the smallest 'wadden' island in the north of the Netherlands. You reach it by ferry or watertaxi.

There are almost no cars.  Everyone walks or rides a bike. Your island bike is waiting for you when you arrive!

Being on Schier is like being far away from the hustle of daily life. Even in summer when many tourists take the ferry to enjoy island life for a day you've got the entire beach by yourself.

The island is a nature monument. It's well preserved and  wild at the same time. 

We will use the beauty of the island, the power of the sea, the impressive every changing light of the sky, and the fastness of the beach in this retreat.

When you walk into a room to work with Esther, be prepared to walk out changed. There is a certain energy, a warmth, that will draw out the deepest and sometimes the darkest sides of you.

This isn’t something to be afraid of – as we all know, the most brilliant diamonds are buried in the darkest of shadows.
