What makes the Evolve Retreat unique?

We get it! Setting aside time to attend an event isn’t always easy. But, prioritizing your personal development and calling in the cavalry so that you can take this time for yourself, is important. We know you are worth it!

Gather

Virtual or In-Person Attendee Gathering

If you want to attend Evolve from your sofa, there’s a virtual option just for you! But, if you want to gather with other spouses in the DC area, and view the workshop together, we’ve got you covered. Think of it like a watch party, where both the virtual and in-person attendees experience the same content, but build community with local spouses. 

Learn

Live Speakers

All speaker presentations are virtual and live, but highly interactive with elements of reflection and discussion. 

Collaborate

Fun Technology

Our virtual workshop platform supports a unique & interactive experience. This is definitely not your average zoom. 

Connect

Small Groups

We want you to feel seen and heard. Opportunities for small group conversations and speaker-led discussions will give you a chance to see yourself in and build community with other seasoned spouses. 

Grow

Reflective Workbook​

Grab your ticket before April 1st and receive a printed and bound copy of our event workbook. This will allow you to participate in workshop reflections and capture your learnings.

"I loved connecting to the other seasoned spouses...and sharing our current stories and future fears. It was refreshing to not be the oldest person in the room."

Two Day Retreat Agenda

Learn more about the topics our speakers will cover during our two days together. 

"Having the words and tools to better understand who I am I think are really going to change my life and the struggles I've been in."

Evolve 2021 attendee

You are curious

You’re a battle-tested seasoned military spouse, but you’re more than that. 

You’re at a point in life when your curiosity about your future, values, and growth is top of mind.  

You want to tap into your potential, own your identity, and align your future to your values.

You need a guide, and maybe a cheerleader, as you peel back the layers of who you are and what you want. 

You value community

As a seasoned military spouse you’ve seen the benefit of community. But, you struggle to find others that understand the season you are in.  

You appreciate hearing others’ struggles, because you know you’ll see yourself in their challenges and in their solutions. 

You enjoy sharing what you’ve learned, knowing you don’t have all the answers, but you do have experiences all your own. 

 

You want to act

Military life has made waiting your superpower. But, so is taking action. 

Investing in others is easy, investing in yourself is harder. But, you know it’s what you need. 

You are ready to write a new chapter, whether at the next duty station, on the journey to retirement, or just in daily life. 

You believe that showing up for yourself is an important next step in your life. 

"I normally don't really enjoy virtual formats for longer periods of time, but the flow of the event and platform used was great and made time fly by."

- Evolve 2021 Attendee

Saturday April 30th schedule runs from 10 am to 6 pm ET. 

Sunday May 1st schedule runs from 1-5pm ET

To gain the most from the event you’ll want grab the two day event pass and block both days on your calendar. 

While we’d never prevent a new spouse from attending, the discussions and learnings will resonate most with those living in their final season of military life – whether that is 2 months or 5 years. It’s an event dedicated to seasoned military spouses. If you’re not at least a little weathered, this probably isn’t the event for you.

Remo is best viewed from a computer. Chrome is the preferred browser. During the small group portion of the retreat, you will have the opportunity to be in a mini-video conference with those at your “table.” To get the most out of this portion, having a web camera available is recommended but not required. If necessary, you can join the conversation on audio-only, though we highly encourage you to attend with video. 

The content from Day One is not recorded. We know recorded sessions provide some flexibility that live sessions do not. But, we also know that getting the most out of the event and evolving together means attending live, connecting with others, and contributing to the conversations we know will be impactful. The content from Day Two will be recorded and made available after the event for two weeks. 

Tickets are not refundable but are transferable. We get it, life happens. So, feel free to gift your seat to a friend who might benefit if you are unable to attend. Please ensure we know of the change so we can invite them to the Facebook group.

There will be four presenters on day one and one presenter on day two. The entire event will be produced via Remo, our virtual event platform. If interested, you can opt to attend Saturday’s event in person at our Tyson’s Corner, VA location.  

This year’s event will have both virtual and in-person options. 

On Saturday, April 30th, there is an option to attend virtually or gather with other spouses at our Tyson’s Corner, VA location to view the event. This in-person option allows you to build community in-person. All speakers will present virtually. 

On Sunday, the workshop will be 100% virtual for all participants.

Select the ticket that corresponds to your preference.

For those attending Evolve 2022 via the in-person option, being able to connect with those in the conference room will be a unique experience. While the speakers will present virtually, in person attendees will watch the presentations together and then have an opportunity to discuss the content. Think of it like a “watch party” but with attendee participation and engagement with the speaker. 

Yes. To protect the opportunity for networking and event integrity, the event cap is 150. Our in-person venue can accommodate 50 people. Once we hit the 50 cap, the in-person option will be removed from the website. 

Friend, that is up to you. We feel strongly that knowing your bottom 5 can have as significant an impact on your life as knowing the top 5, so we’d love you to join us and do the full 34 assessment, included with your ticket. That alone usually costs $49.99. Just sayin’

Owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing we will ever do.
