Forward in the Field Project & Retreat

Are you feeling a strong desire to live a more authentic life?

Can you articulate the thing that brings you meaning and passion to you everyday?

What if there was a process that would allow you to take actionable steps to reach those goals?

Have you ever felt there is a bigger purpose just waiting to be released inside you?

Something larger than you can describe or maybe even know. A deep knowledge you have something that you could share that could help others. An unfulfilled dream that has been waiting to be born. 

Once you begin to understand the perceived barriers and fears of what is holding you back from going forward, a whole new world will begin to unfold. With an open mind and a full heart, join us in 1, 2 or 3 day journeys in nature to begin defining your purpose and integrating the focus needed to accomplish your thing. 

We will incorporate our 10 Steps to Re-Engaging With Your Higher Purpose which includes wellness, belonging and connection. The team will lead with a driven desire to create communities of individuals who lead with their hearts and lift each other up, empowering one another to create good within themselves first and bring the good to their communities in which they exist. Whether you are just beginning to imagine your journey or got stalled somewhere in the process this is where your story starts.

"You must be the change you wish to see in the world."
- Mahatma Gandhi

About Forward in the Field

Forward in the Field is an empowering, outdoor, seasonal experience that uses nature to connect you to your higher purpose and provide you with a roadmap to begin living the life you were truly meant to live. Whether you are focused on improving the connection with yourself, family, friends, organizations, your work/business or community, whatever your arena is, Forward In the Field will begin to lay the groundwork to identify and implement your highest level of living a purpose driven life. And as your purpose becomes clear, your circle of influence will prosper, creating strong and healthy communities in which you live.

Located in the driftless region of the Midwest and nestled in the bluffs of south central Wisconsin on 46 acres of pure beauty and calm you will be removed from everyday distractions allowing you to focus only on you. In a forested sanctuary underlain by durable Pre-Cambrian quartzite rock, which signifies strength, abundance and protection, we will use the land to connect you to your roots through dance, yoga, meditation, art, movement and peaceful relaxation.

We are honored to have your presence and be an integral part of creating, what we believe will be a life changing experience. With open mind and heart, join us in celebration of pursuing your purpose!

"In a world where everyone belongs, anything is possible."
- Jane Fonda

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. 

About The Host

In her past career, Jean Latham was a licensed social worker, working in child protection services, and empowering women to become independent thinkers and doers rising above to create more
purpose driven, independent lives.

With a drive to pursue business aspirations she created regional and national sales success developing business and traveling nationally in the housing and construction industry. And then she got lost and tried to find happiness in all of the painfully wrong places. Little did she know that those experiences would be the way she would find her way back home and give her the tools to help others create more purpose driven lives.

Returning to Baraboo and reconnecting to the love of her life, she began the healing process in nature and on the land she has come to love. Creating strong individuals who are living their full potential creates strong communities. The community in which we exist are multifaceted. Families, friends, groups, movements, organizations, workplace/businesses are all micro communities of a larger greater community. By cultivating your greater good you not only improve your personal life you empower your the communities you touch.

Leading through example, empowering our communities, strengthens and creates synergy
as we mentor next generations.

Using elements in nature, every single person who attends will leave feeling rejuvenated, powerful, lighter, happier, relaxed, and excited for the next steps forward on their journey.
