    “Words cannot adequately express how inspirational and amazing True North Adventures is. In just a few days I was able to challenge myself to the limit both physically and spiritually, while surrounded by the kind of strength, support and friendship that comes around only once in a lifetime… I was able to climb heights I never imagined, both on the rocks in Joshua Tree and in the areas of my life that were the most frightening. It also doesn’t hurt that the food is rockin’!!”

    “Having your life intersect with True North Adventures and Jen Whalen will set your trajectory to exactly what it says “true north”. You will never be met with more authenticity, openness and love then the time spent either on a True North retreat or during one on one coaching! If you are ready for fun, commitment and becoming a better you, don’t hesitate!”

  • Davia
    “Complete Joy! I met great, inspiring women and feel more confidence in myself and what I am capable of in life… This was freaking amazing and just what I needed in my life. Thank you!”

  • Kayd
    “Jen is an amazing leader. I have done two retreats with her in Joshua Tree that were life changing. My biggest take away from the first retreat was “If I think I can, I CAN!” I felt so empowered… this feeling continued for me back at work where I have continued to climb the “corporate” ladder. I also worked with Jen as a coach for my business and it definitely helped form me into the strong leader I am today. I would highly recommend her retreats as well as business coaching. Thank you Jen for always encouraging me to grow and learn!”

  • Heather
    “As an avid world traveler and athlete, the idea of True North’s retreats have always appealed to me.  But with little ones at home, a literal retreat wasn’t in my cards at this time.  Instead the Inner Expedition program offered a wonderful opportunity to journey in a different sense.  The course I set with Jen transformed my communication, guided me back to a positive state of mind and helped me to see and acknowledge all of the beautiful gifts that surround me day-to-day.  Even after the program is complete, I find myself actively working the solo adventures to return to that place of compassionate loving and well-being.  It is safe to say that the Inner Expedition program reset my compass – and I enjoyed every moment of the transformative journey.”

  • Andrew
    “THANK YOU SO SO SO SO MUCH for facilitating the retreat.  You did fantastic and were absolutely perfect.  it was just what we needed.  The strategy discussion came together like it never has for me and it was because of your help.  I’ve been trying to convey that strategy to people for years in ways and have never been able to articulate it in a way that people can absorb and relate to but now we have a model that is really solid that I am excited about. …  Although we’ve had several board and staff retreats over the years, none of them felt as valuable as this last one.”

  • Sylvie
    “I absolutely loved it. You combined heart, mind, body and Spirit beautifully and it was truly empowering and transformational. You ROCK!”

    “I participated in the 12-week women’s lead climbing workshop. It was the best decision I’ve made in a long time. I improved my climbing ability substantially over the course of 12 weeks; I feel more comfortable on difficult climbs and passed a lead climbing test. Part of that improvement can be attributed to the technical climbing lessons, I credit most of it to the tools and lessons I learned in overcoming fears and personal limitations. My learning edge on the climbing wall transferred to other areas of life, too. I learned to identify my cognitive roadblocks, let my fears speak, and then choose courage & vulnerability over fear. I decided to sell my business and make a career change. I decided to get married. I’m so grateful for the support and tools I received through this program (and specifically Jen Whalen) that helped me make those decisions. I would highly recommend any True North program to those considering. ”

    “My experience with True North was revelatory. Jen is awake to life. She has a way of asking questions and nudging you forward that makes you feel so supported and loved that it feels natural to take the step. I joined this climbing workshop with the hope that I would find some badass women to climb and adventure with and I got exactly that! The women in this group were awesome, passionate and unique. To be part of a group in which you are invited to be wholly yourself, no judgment given, was freeing in ways I couldn’t have imagined going into this adventure. I was hesitant when I found out we would have to talk about our feelings, as vulnerability is not comfortable for me. But I jumped in with both feet thinking, why not?! The rewards I reaped from not holding back, bringing everything to the table each week, and in response receiving the full and open support and thoughtful feedback opened by eyes to how I was holding myself back from living to my fullest. Climbing, with the guidance of two skilled and enthusiastic coaches, provided a solid platform to apply the life lessons brought forth. I can’t say enough about how life changing these 12 weeks have been in every part of my life. I am a stronger climber and person because of this experience and will definitely be adventuring with True North again. ”
