If you want to live an extraordinary life, one in which your heart, mind, and spirit are in sync, you have to make space for your soul. You have to leave, in order to come back to yourself.

It is time to go on retreat.

Written as if by a wise and cherished friend, You Should Leave Now is a gentle, practical guide to drawing rich benefits--mental, emotional, and spiritual--from a personal retreat. Life coach, meditation teacher, and founder of She Glows Retreats, Brie Doyle helps us discover the ideal focus, setting, and approach to transformative retreating.

In plain-spoken prose that is rich with ideas, solid research, gentle suggestions, and compelling stories, Doyle covers the benefits of retreating, reminding us that our well-being is about more than a daily dose of kombucha or a fitness class. She then details the logistics of going on retreat, what to expect while there, and how to make the most of what you've gained upon returning home.

Doyle's extraordinary work opens the doors to rediscovering rest and rekindling your inner spark. Inner transformation awaits.

You should leave now.


"You Should Leave Now is a testament to the restorative energy and spiritual connection a retreat can bring to one's life path and journey forward. This book serves as a guide, showing you how creating time and space for a retreat in your own life can prove transformational."

Laura Lynne Jackson, New York Times bestselling author of Signs: The Secret Language of the Universe and The Light Between Us

"Brie Doyle makes a powerful case for retreating as essential medicine. Allow this book to be the permission slip you have been waiting for to step away from your life for a moment so you may step back in, more fully alive."

Beth Kempton, bestselling author of Wabi Sabi: Japanese Wisdom for a Perfectly Imperfect Life

"Brie Doyle's message is essential for all women. Her guidance is a true gift."

Sheila Kelley, founder of S Factor, award-winning actress, and author

"If the so-called 'great pause' felt like anything but, let Brie Doyle's illuminating You Should Leave Now transport you to your very own life-giving (perhaps even life-saving) retreat."

Ann Imig, founder of Listen to Your Mother
