“It was a very bonding experience, and at the end of the experience, no one really wanted leave!”
“Dr. Tracey Adams is truly “emotionally intelligent” and has the capacity to teach all of us how to find our own voice and develop this crucial skill within ourselves.”
“As an introvert, being in a group activity and being the center of attention is not comfortable for me. However, this experience opened my eyes to areas that I need to build strength and confidence. I’m so happy that I stepped out of my comfort zone and enjoyed a wonderful weekend with other women that are truly amazing and supportive.”
“Tracey Adams was very sensitive, intuitive and supportive to each and every attendee. Thank you Tracey!!”
“ThriveOn gave me the space to quiet my mind and focus on elements of my life to foster greater well-being.”
“My greatest gift to myself was putting on my dashboard, “ask for more.” I used to give more until there was nothing left of me – Today I ask for what I want.”
“I came away from the weekend with new friends and a new energy for life!”
“Tracey is a fantastic facilitator and she fully leads from the heart. She has an amazing way of bringing people together and all of us who attended would say we became fast friends.”
“Tracey is truly gifted in all that she does and I know EVERYONE would benefit from not only her work in emotional intelligence but from her as well!”
“We all had the opportunity to communicate with each other in a way that we normally don’t get a chance to do.”

“Everyday I reflect on my ThriveOn dashboard and become inspired to do at least one action.“
“I am amazed at how freeing it is to share my desires, dreams and thoughts. Since the retreat, more and more, people meet me closer to what I ask for than I believed possible.”
“This is a retreat not to be missed.”
