Monday, October 21st, 2024 through Friday, October 25th, 2024

Join us for the MOOXLI Fall 2024 retreat and go from being swept along  by your life to living in the present  where you have a clear path  forward and you are confident about the choices you will make to get there.

Registration for this retreat opens in September. Registration for FALL 2024 will open to all current and past retreat and course attendees with first access exclusive sign-up for the first 7 days.

After the first 7 days, all remaining spots will be opened up to the MOOXLI Email community for 7 days, and then if there are any remaining spots they will be made available to the general public. If you aren’t on the email list, get on the list by filling out the contact form at the bottom of this page.

Before we ask you to commit, let’s make sure you understand who this retreat is for:

You are a smart and successful individual! Ask anyone and they’ll say how decisive and wise you are. Yet, you say yes to so many things when you need to say no to support your beautiful  heart. You’ve reached the milestone of getting your degree and are now having this,”Now what?” moment. You aren’t sure how it is all going to play out and you want to be in the driver’s seat from now on.  Let’s step into the power of choice together and learn how to say no , all while trusting what is best for us in daily life.


You want to be brave in big decisions for yourself


You want to have clarity around the choices you have every day to live into your  purpose in life


You want the way you feel inside to match what those around you already see on the outside


You want to understand research-proven approaches to giving up personal and professional emotional exhaustion for living an empowered life


You are a nurse and want to learn how the power of your choices can directly address the deep compassion fatigue that you are experiencing


You want to learn how Yoga can become part of the way you support yourself as a person and a professional 


You should join us if you want to move from living a life that feels swept along by impulses to one grounded in understanding and nourishing yourself at the deepest level of your being. Let’s introduce you to who is guiding on this journey

Sarah Plummer Taylor

A U.S. Marine veteran who deployed twice to Iraq, Sarah is the author of Just Roll With It: 7 Battle Tested Truths for Building a Resilient Life. As a Marine, she also captained and played for the US Military Olympic Women’s Soccer Team from 2007-2011. She is also the founder of SEMPER Sarah®, an international wellness practice.

Sarah is an expert in understanding and living the power of choice to foster a resilient and value driven life. She faced one of the biggest choices of her life when deployed in Iraq, when she had to choose between her pistol or her yoga mat.

Sarah holds a Master’s in Social Work with a Mental Health concentration from the University of Denver and is a 500hr-ERYT registered yoga instructor.

Her work has been featured on Capitol Hill and in noteworthy news and entertainment outlets like the Katie Couric Show, NPR, NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams, MSNBC, Huffington Post, and others. Sarah’s advocacy has been featured in publications such as the New York Times and by Pulitzer Prize Winning author, David Wood, in his book What Have We Done.

As a speaker, instructor, and consultant, she guides leaders and top organizations in North America and Europe, including FORTUNE500 companies like Coca Cola and DaVita, esteemed universities, and the US Department of Defense.

Sarah is a returning MOOXLI facilitator and we are thrilled to be spending the week together again! 


Sara Bergakker

“Clinically qualified, but not emotionally equipped,” describes MOOXLI founder Sarah Bergakker, experience starting as an LPN in the emergency department at the age of 19. This theme continued as Sarah completed her bachelor’s in nursing and began work as an ER Trauma nurse, and then became a nurse anesthetist. After almost 20 years in healthcare, Sarah realized that she didn’t know what she was going to do differently but that her practices of perfectionism, numbing, and detaching from her emotional and physical self needed to change. ​Sarah started this work to discover if there was a way for her to continue to work in healthcare and find joy in her work. She is so thankful to have returned to the original passion of her calling in healthcare. ​Sarah will be sharing how self compassion and boundaries can effectively change our habits, change our lives, and ultimately support our own resilience.
