Wingspread Retreat & Executive Conference Center

Racine, Wisconsin

Wingspread Retreat & Executive Conference Center encompasses three unique buildings on thirty-six secluded acres with prairies, trails, and a pond, and is just a five-minute walk from the western shore of Lake Michigan. We will enjoy a private tour of the original iconic building, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and known simply as Wingspread, which is the heart of this unique complex. Wingspread is located thirty-five minutes from Milwaukee Mitchell Int’l Airport (MKE) and ninety minutes from Chicago O’Hare Int’l Airport (ORD). Visit for more information, plus photos and descriptions of meeting spaces and sleeping rooms.


Designing the Next Chapter of Your Life
Life is full of change - in the roles we play in our families and in the world, in our physical and financial capacities, and in how we occupy ourselves. We can resist change, or get stuck mourning the losses, or we can look at what opportunities there are for living our best possible lives in the new circumstances.  
Join us at Summer Institute 2023 to explore:

  • Freeing yourself from the limitations of your old identities and stories 

  • Identifying opportunities you have in this next phase of life

  • Figuring out what you really want

  • Letting go of the self-judgments and fears that hold you back

  • Uncovering resources available to support you

We’ll be inspired by each other’s dreams, informed by what others have learned, and gain clarity about what we want more of (and less of) in our lives. Come to the Summer Institute and discover new possibilities for yourself that could lead to a more fulfilling and joyful life.

The Summer Institute incorporates a balance of large and small group activities, with time for personal reflection and opportunities to socialize. Whether you've spent little time or decades pondering questions like those above, the Summer Institute will provide something of value to you.  It is our experience that what we learn and explore together leads to more open, fulfilling conversations and relationships throughout our lives.
