Imagine you're gliding down the Big Hole River, Montana's hidden gem.

 

By all accounts, you have achieved success, yet there's an unexplainable void deep within. But here, surrounded by the awe-inspiring beauty of nature, a newfound inspiration begins to stir. The water, shimmering like liquid silver, reflects the brilliant rays of the sun, illuminating a path toward self-discovery, a path that you have not had the time or space to explore for most of your adult life.

 

Majestic eagles gracefully dance above, their freedom reminding you of limitless possibilities. With each cast of your fly fishing rod, you feel a sense of release, as if you are shedding the shackles of your work identity and corporate life for a greater purpose

The fish, catapulting out of the water, reminds you of the untapped potential within yourself. The gentle breeze whispers through the air, urging you to listen to your heart's calling. In this moment, beneath the vast blue sky, you realize that true fulfillment lies not in the pursuit of wealth but in service to others and the pursuit of personal destiny.

 

In years prior even thinking about this would sound silly or impractical. But now, you are ready. This journey down the river becomes a catalyst for change, igniting a desire to embark on a new path, one that leads to a life of purpose and fulfillment and a shift in how you model success to your children and generations to come.

Wouldn’t it be incredible to wake up every day knowing you are fulfilling your true purpose and creating a lasting, positive impact for future generations? 
 

Can you imagine the exhilaration of breaking free from the mundane “hamster wheel” to lead a life filled with passion?


How liberating would it be to feel completely understood, respected, and supported by your partner?

Envision the profound satisfaction of living a life that's not just successful, but deeply meaningful and fulfilling.
 

Imagine the immense relief as you let go of the anger and control that you’ve been holding from situations that didn’t work out.


Feel the freedom as you transform your life into one where confidence and ease replace stress and pressure.

The Venue

Leave
The
World
Behind

Our retreat takes place at a privately owned fishing lodge and boutique retreat center on the banks of the Big Hole River. The Complete Fly Fisher has been welcoming guests from around the world since 1968. 

Unlike venues near Bozeman, Whitefish, and Missoula, your home for the week is a sanctuary nestled in one of the few unspoiled areas of Montana. With a population of 54, the nearby town of Wise River is home to what experienced anglers call “The Last Best River.” Miles of winding river flanked by forest-lined hiking trails and majestic bald eagles and osprey gracing the wide open skies above. 


The Lodge is a world-class destination that offers a level of rustic and relaxed luxury found in very few places on Earth. It is perfect for our small group with well-appointed single occupancy cabins and suites, all with amazing views of the river and a herd of deer that make early morning visits to our grassy “front yard.”

The main Lodge houses a commercial kitchen, a large river's edge dining room, a cozy fireside sitting area, and an outdoor fire pit ready for our evening wind down. 

The decades-old restored barn is where we’ll do morning breathwork and one-on-one coaching to accelerate your personal shifts in a casual, welcoming environment. 

All the rooms are designed to make your stay on the banks of the Big Hole as comfortable and relaxing as any place you’ve ever stayed.

EXPERIENCE TRANSFORMATION, MONTANA STYLE 

A critical part of personal growth and change is a balance of learning, contemplation, and then, having uninterrupted time to integrate the new.  

 

Our mornings will be dedicated to learning and practice, and each afternoon will offer relaxation, fresh air, exercise, and private time

The Big Hole Valley has been known by the Flathead Indians as La-im-tse-la-lik, "place of the ground squirrel," by trappers as “the big hole basin," and through the ranching community as "the land of 10,000 haystacks."  

 

The valley was visited by the Lewis and Clark Expedition on July 7, 1806, and provides a multitude of fantastic experiences to support our collective agenda.

* All experiences are subject to change

BIRDS, BIRDS, BIRDS

The Big Hole River is a place of awe-inspiring beauty, where the landscape and wildlife have remained unchanged for centuries. It is home to a diverse array of magnificent creatures, from majestic eagles and ospreys to graceful swans, crows, and owls. These large-winged inhabitants can teach us the art of rising above challenges, soaring high above all obstacles, and trusting in our own abilities.

The Big Hole Valley itself is renowned as one of the most significant bird areas in the western United States. Its vast wetlands provide crucial nesting sites, abundant food sources, and essential resting spots for a wide variety of bird species. The valley's wetlands serve as a haven for these birds, offering them a sanctuary to thrive and flourish in their natural habitats.

TRIP LEADER

Christine Grimm

I have spent 28 years coaching leaders and teams for success and to recover from the challenges that show up in the modern world of business. 

Some would tell you I’m at my best when the situation calls for a coach that leans in, speaks the hard truth, and spots the solution that no one else wants to put on the table. I am a strong woman who strives daily to be a role model for my children, a fair boss, an unconditionally loving person, and the ever-evolving heroine of my story. Because of these dimensions of my life, I’ve had to expand my toolbox and thinking. 

All of this makes me uniquely qualified to run retreats - intense, focused, and designed for extraordinary results. When you are ready to find a balance, make a bold move, recover from loss, and move away from an imbalanced, exhausting type-A grind- I’ve got you. I helped design leadership approaches and groomed many a C-level- so I know how that system works. I also know how to help the same people shift their energy and focus to create a fulfilling, meaningful, and joyful future, allowing you to make a big impact in addition to chasing EBITDA. 

I’ve spent the last eight years studying Archetypes, the Hero’s Journey, and Shamanic Breathwork, along with immensely powerful tools integrated with the models, concepts, and materials I designed and used in my corporate executive coaching.  This all combined has provided a solid foundation for me to meet you where you are and help guide you to feel whole, authentic, and in your full power.
