how does Wellness Unleashed work?

Wellness Unleashed is designed for only 8 women at a time. The course is small and intimate so that both you and your dog receive the maximum benefit.

The workshop begins on Friday at 9:00 am. We will have a variety of sessions for both our dogs and ourselves throughout the day. We will have an awesome catered lunch at the ranch at noon each of the three days. On Friday at 5:00 pm we break for champagne and optional hot-tub time to celebrate the end of our first day! You will receive a beautiful Wellness Unleashed robe to wear. The robe is one of several gifts that are yours to take home! At 6:30 pm, we will enjoy a wonderful catered dinner at Cheri’s ranch. Saturday and Sunday we continue learning and sharing. The course ends at 5:00 pm on Sunday.

Here are some, but not all, of what you’ll experience during your Wellness Unleashed weekend:

  • Discovering what could be blocking the success and happiness you desire.
  • Understanding why the dynamics between you and your dog matter.
  • Learning how essential self-care is to your self-esteem and self-image.
  • Developing the skill of “reframing” how you see your world.
  • Developing the ability to visualize and achieve a different outcome when working with your dog, or navigating through life.
  • Understanding how to manage the chatter in your own mind.
  • Learning the importance of living life “consciously.”
  • Developing the ability to create new habits that finally last!
  • Discovering the empowerment and joy of not caring about other people’s opinions.
  • Creating routines that become the foundation for your fulfilment and happiness.

At our Wellness Unleashed Workshop, we’ll identify the reasons why your life isn’t all you want it to be. You’ll leave with insights, practical strategies and tools to use long after the workshop is over. You’ll leave the weekend having gained a deeper bond with your dog – one that is based on respect. You will have begun your journey of emotional well-being and balance, with habits that are practical, sustainable and fulfilling!

Wellness Unleashed FAQs

Wellness Unleashed Weekends are held at Cheri’s beautiful 20-acre oak-studded ranch in Templeton on the Central Coast of California. Templeton is located half-way between Los Angeles and San Francisco. The nearest airport is San Luis Obispo, 30 minutes from Templeton. The ranch is totally secluded but easy to get to and only 6 minutes off the 101 freeway.

The cost of the three day workshop is $1,800 which includes a delicious catered lunch on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, an optional champagne and hot tub rendezvous early Friday evening, followed by a catered gourmet dinner, a welcome pack including a Wellness Unleashed bag, signature robe, notebook and surprise gifts.

No, it’s not a requirement to bring a dog. Many students, especially those that travel from abroad, don’t feel comfortable traveling with their dog. You can either attend the class with a “loaner” dog from Cheri’s humane society, Second Chance at Love, or attend without a dog altogether. Either way, Cheri’s message will resonate deeply with you.
Cheri will provide a crate for your dog during the workshop. However, our host hotel, The Carlton, requires that dog’s be crated if left alone in the hotel room. It’s best to be prepared, so bringing a crate would be ideal.
The Wellness Unleashed Workshop is intimate. It’s designed for one student with one dog.

We have negotiated a special rate with the Carlton Hotel which is a 12-minute drive from the ranch. The Carlton is a historical, renovated, dog-friendly hotel that has accommodated Cheri’s students and clients with exquisite style and hospitality for years. There are several other hotels in the area that are dog-friendly. You can find them on Trip Advisor. Some Airbnb accommodations are dog-friendly.
