We believe that travel should be an experience from start to finish, from the intention you set, to the activities we do, to the food we eat, we cover every single detail to make sure you’ll have a life changing experience. The retreats are curated by Jo Franco herself. She’ll ensure the location has a unique flare that transports retreaters to a new world, with people from all over the globe. Whether you sign up to journal your heart out, or immerse yourself in a new culture and language, JoClub retreats will be a vacation you’ll tell your grandchildren about. What makes our trips so special? Every single thing you experience will have soul, and soul is priceless. Our retreats attract diverse people from all walks of life, which makes the conversations profound and unlike any other group dynamic you’ve ever had before. And that’s a promise.
The JoClub journaling retreat was born from the lifelong bonds formed digitally through the JoClub members. On the journaling retreat, attendees will receive custom made journals, a carefully thought-out accommodation to provide both tranquility, fun (hello hot tubs and saunas), and nature to disconnect from the stresses back home. Activities include journaling workshops where we first deconstruct what’s not working in our lives, analyze the narratives we’ve been limited by, and retreaters leave with an action plan of how to implement changes that will get them back on track to living their lives fully. An added perk of our retreat is discussing complex topics with such a diverse group. You’ll leave with refreshed perspective and lifelong bonds.

This retreat was absolutely transformational for me! I’ve never connected with people that quickly on so many levels. I found myself being vulnerable and open and growing naturally… in just one week!
This retreat was genuinely a transformational, life changing and eye-opening experience, every moment was a pure joy, I felt deep connections with everybody, I felt empowered by their positive energy and their kindness ! In such a safe space I found my center, I saw my story and all the things I want to pursue from a different lens, now I’m armed with greater self-confidence, ready to take a step forward. None of these new everlasting friendships and Epiphanic thoughts would have been possible without Jo, she is an extraordinary person with a big heart ! She perfectly organized this rewarding experience and made the stay at Ekodrom Estate real heaven !
My life will never be the same. The retreat experience is one of those crazy dreams we have but don’t really believe will come true but actually did.
Transformative was exactly the word I used when describing my experience at the inaugural JoClub retreat. It was amazing and it exceeded my expectations. Not only was I able to reset on a personal level I met and bonded with some wonderful women. I left feeling refreshed, reinvigorated and inspired. I'm so thankful that I joined JoClub.
You know those resorts where you land, get sent straight to a walled estate where you eat and drink the same foods every day, and even though you’re in a foreign country, you really never left Walmart? This retreat category is the exact opposite. The JoClub culture retreats will take a deep dive into culture like you’ve never experienced before. From the carefully thought out accommodation that will give you a flavor of the destination through decor, the locally sourced and made food with historic backgrounds, to the intentionally crafted itinerary, we’ll blend having a great time with immersion to ensure that you leave with a life-changing experience. The Itinerary will focus both on leisure activities that are well-known or original to the location, as well as bonding activities so retreaters make connections with attendees from different cultures themselves. There will always be a language learning component, a food and beverage lesson and tasting, a workout component such as hikes and yoga, excursions to visit natural beauty, as well as a writing workshop about culture, experiences, and connections. So yes, we’ll party, but we’ll also grow, learn, and leave feeling inspired.
