You can do this retreat at your church, at a hotel, at a retreat center, or even in someone’s home. The theme will work no matter what your location is. Sweet Life Café is created as a 24-hour or overnight retreat, but you’ll find tips in this guide for ways to shorten or lengthen it to fit the needs of your group. It’s flexible and easy.

Q: Is it absolutely essential indeed, to buy the "essential pack"? Purchasing essential packs for each participant would drive up the cost of the retreat considerably, and I find it misleading to present your product as a Retreat Kit when it really isn't complete; that additional items must be purchased to complete the experience. (For context, we just did the Lavender Spa themed retreat, and I was dismayed to find that so many other things needed to be purchased. We skipped on the little gift bags and pendants and bought a few things separately and improvised to save money, but it took more mental effort, time and planning). So I'm wondering if the essentials pack is truly essential, or optional. I'm worried the mini-devotional kit might have content necessary to get the most out of the retreat.

A: The Retreat Kit is the foundation of each retreat. It has all of the session manuals and content. We include one sample of the participant items, so you can see if they are something you would like to use. We cannot include a quantity of those items in each kit as it would, 1. Drive the price of the kit up, and 2. We do not know how many women you will be serving in your retreat. The Essential Pack includes the Participant guide which we encourage you have for each participant to be able to journal their responses in each session. The Pendant is given out in session 4 as part of a meaningful personal experience and the Devotional kit is also used in session 4. You certainly can choose to adapt the program as you may have done with the Spa retreat. We provide these items to enhance the program and the interactive engaging experience for the women who come.

"The kit contains all the materials you need and it is laid out well and easy to follow. My one complaint is in regard to the publicitiy materials, especially the bulletin insert and flier. The area available for personalization does not allow for changes of font or size of font. The bulletin insert appears to be in landscape format but will only print in portrait making it unusable. Also I did not find the clip art to be useful or helpful. This was disappointing."

"We (our Saturday am group) just held the Sweet Life Cafe retreat at our church. We had a good time doing it and the ladies that joined us all enjoyed the day. Our first time to attempt anything like this. The program is well laid out and easy to follow. We were all able to do our session and did not have to "wing it". Not sure if this is the first annual or the first and only but would highly recommend this retreat. Participants got to know new friends and share. "
