"Simply Be”

Women’s Spiritual Retreat

You’re invited to escape for a weekend designed just for you!  You are invited to answer the call that you’ve been hearing, the one that’s stirring deep down in your soul. You are invited to an experience that allows you to listen to that still small voice inside…to learn ways to live with higher purpose and intention… to heal, to transform, to grow. You are wholeheartedly invited… I hope you will join us!


2023 Registration opens soon! Check Back!

If you are here, then I suspect you are ready for a retreat! It is time to unearth your hidden treasures.  It is time to make peace with everything that has gotten you this far! One reason we get stuck in life is because we have yet to honor everything that has transpired in our life so far. When and where and how you do that is up to you, but it is so necessary.  It is time to honor your journey.  That is what this retreat is about. I believe that we are each being called upon to bring Light into our own darkness.  We are being asked to shift the energies around us, and within us, from seductive fear to stillness and peace.  We are being asked to be Light Workers and Love Warriors and Peace Makers and to align with this beautiful evolution of souls awakening in our world right now. It begins with you… it begins with me. It begins by healing old wounds, healing trauma, and letting go of past hurts and resentments.  It begins by learning how to live differently, purposefully, and with intention.  It begins by making peace with yourself, your journey, and with others. This work is deep and powerful and so liberating!

Whether you are going through some sort of life transition or just ready to step onto a path of personal growth and healing, we welcome you.

During this retreat, you will experience…

  • A weekend at Indigo Retreat Center in Old Fort, NC… just east of Asheville. This beautiful retreat center backs up to the Pisgah National Forest and holds so much magical energy of the forest!  
  • Personalized TLC and individual coaching/processing that will increase your growth and awareness.
  • The opportunity to listen to the wise voice of your heart and soul and awaken the deep authentic parts of you that were left behind.
  • Quiet time for personal reflection to assist in your awakening through rest, relaxation, solitude and nature.
  • Our signature Song and Stories Laser Coaching Experience™ that will deepen your healing experience and raise your awareness and authenticity.
  • Amazing meals prepared with love and intention specifically for the nourishment of your mind, body and soul all weekend!  (Special dietary requests can be honored!)

“I hope there are days when your coffee tastes like magic, your playlist makes you dance, strangers make you smile, and the night sky touches your soul.  I hope you fall in love with being alive again.”


  • Guided meditation and Spirit Walks in the beautiful nature surrounding Indigo!
  • The chance to create a life-plan that will remind you of your gifts…one that provides a clear vision of where you want to go next in life, and peace that comes from knowing you have support as you begin to navigate through old fears and blocks and limiting beliefs. You will find your voice and courage to step into your BEST life and fulfill your soul’s calling! 
  • Tap into your creativity through art and music, creating your very own Soul Portrait, and experiencing the powerful transformation of Sound Healing. 
  • Begin each morning with fresh, crisp mountain air, a cup of hot coffee or tea, and a sacred ceremony to welcome the day! 
  • End each day with warm chamomile tea, a sacred fire and plenty of silent reflection. Once you’re nestled into your cabin, you’ll be lulled to sleep by the quiet sound of the nearby stream.

Meet your Retreat Hosts:

Jenny Aiello is the founder and creator of ‘Simply Be’ Women’s Spiritual Retreats and ‘Return To Spirit’ Men’s Retreats. She has been leading retreats and coaching clients for over 15 years. She is a Spiritual Life Coach and Energy Healer. Jenny loves working with all modalities of energy medicine to help others heal emotional and spiritual wounds. Her clients come to her for support as they go through life transitions, or for personal healing. Whether considering marriage or divorce, starting a new job or moving to a new community, experiencing grief, healing old emotional wounds, or simply seeking a way to live an intentional and purposeful life, clients come to these powerful retreats to find a spiritual path that supports their continued journey of personal growth. During this retreat, clients may experience profound healing and transformation… or at the very least, leave with an increased awareness of what holds them back or causes them to repeat patterns that no longer serve them. 
Jenny works in partnership with her husband, Bob Aiello. Bob is a clinical psychologist who has been in practice for over 40 years.

“Our commitment to you is to provide a safe, healing, nurturing, deep, soul-level experience that will leave you feeling blessed, renewed, and honored for who you are in the world.”

Bob is making a transition from that practice, to partnering with Jenny in facilitating retreats and coaching. Aside from his vast experience with counseling, Bob brings his many gifts to the retreats including coaching, listening, supporting, guiding, playing the Native American flute, drumming, and storytelling. Bob and Jenny are three quarters of the way around the medicine wheel in their Shamanic training, bringing ancient rituals and wisdom into their work.

Bob has a beautiful way of creating safe space and helping others connect the dots between their wounds and their walls. He is trained and experienced in identifying family patterns and going to the root of dysfunction. He also brings compassion into the process of releasing old patterns and then aligning to new healthy patterns. Bob has played a supportive role in past women’s retreats and witnessed the magic and mystery of the process. He brings his big heart, hard-earned wisdom, and compassionate spirit to everyone he meets.

Together, Bob and Jenny provide a unique growth process to each person at the retreat so they can experience deep healing and insightful awareness while discovering balance in mind, body and spirit.
