Murmuration Is Excited to Announce
“Murmuration in the Wild”
Where: House in The Wild - Kenya,
Dates: January 22-26, 2023
We are delighted to partner once again with the amazing Lippa Wood and her team at House in the Wild, along with the very thoughtful travel experts at Bush & Beyond to bring you a once in a lifetime safari + personal transformation experience.
Our last Murmuration in the Wild (pre-COVID) sold out very quickly, so please read on to learn what you need to know and to reserve your spot today!
During Murmuration in the Wild you will not only get to awaken to what you want next in your life supported by a dynamic cohort of women and guided by our team of amazing female career (& life) coaches and facilitators, you also will get to be inspired while on safari by the beauty and wonder of Maasai Mara, her people, and the wild life that is so well protected by the Enonkishu Conservancy.
Our team will help you rise to the person you want to be next in your life. Without fear or compromise. Our “Murmuration in the Wild” experience is born of expert guidance, creativity, and community – allowing you to look inward in an entirely new way in one of the most inspiring places on the planet, Kenya’s Maasai Mara.
The full 6-month Murmuration Experience kicks off with the 5-day, 4-night retreat at House in the Wild where you will be able to explore…
What Is It I Truly Want To Create Next For Myself?
What Is My Heart’s Desire Right Now?
And discover answers that are beautiful and true to you while getting you into action to bring into fruition what it is you truly want next in your life.
You will also have one of the most memorable, bucket-list experiences (while having a ton of fun along the way) in a gorgeous, natural, and “wild” setting.
What to expect when attending Murmuration in the Wild:
Prior to your journey, you will be well supported with your travel planning by Bush & Beyond who will guide you through booking your travel to Kenya.
Day 1: Sunday, January 22
Arrive Nairobi, Kenya where you will be met off of your international flight by one of the fantastic Bush & Beyond guest experience representatives who will lead you through customs, onto baggage claim, and into your waiting car transfer. You will then head to local Wilson Airport where you will take an Air Kenya regional flight to the Maasai Mara. Once in the Mara, you will be met by a House in the Wild guide who will bring you to the lodge in one of House in the Wild’s safari land cruisers where Murmuration’s Founder, Lucy Reynolds, will be waiting to greet you. Once there you will be able to relax, unwind, and begin to enjoy all House in the Wild has to offer in the way of amenities and activities.
Day 2: Monday, January 23
We know from doing Murmuration work with women how important it is to first allow women to take a deep inhale to gain clarity, so they can have a strong exhale to be fully open and available to what could be next in their lives. So, the first part of today is wonderfully unstructured allowing you to explore all House in the Wild has to offer. Perhaps you will rise early for a sunrise safari, maybe visit the rhino sanctuary, yoga, a massage, and/or relax by the pool. Starting at 4pm we will begin our Murmuration experience culminating in a lovely cohort dinner and begin to murmurate as a collective.
Day 3: Tuesday, January 24th
Our Murmuration in the Wild experience begins at 8am with gentle yoga followed by meditation. We will then dive further into our experiential curriculum that will first awaken you to your Inner Wisdom who will help to inform you as to what you want next in your life, while your cohort provides the murmuration energy needed to uplift and ignite what is to come! We will complete the day with a truly spectacular “sundowner safari” followed by a very special dinner under the African stars.
Day 4: Wednesday, January 25th
We will again start with yoga and meditation followed by looking to Nature Wisdom and Collective Wisdom to inspire you further to create what you want next in your life. Today we will get even more clear on what it is you want and how to bring it into fruition as you return home, still supported by your cohort over the next six months. We will end the day with a very meaningful closing dinner that is sure to deepen your appreciation for the women around you on this journey as you dare to dream big. You will definitely feel a true Murmuration moment this evening.
Day 5: Thursday, January 26th
This morning (prior to your afternoon departure) we will have the privilege to widen our Murmuration Collective energy out into the Maasai community of women and girls by visiting the nearby Emarti School. Here we will visit and learn from the Maasai girls who attend this school. We will hear about their dreams for what they want next in their lives. Who knows what uplift we will collectively experience from this time together!
Of course you do not have to leave House in the Wild on Thursday. Bush & Beyond is more than happy to extend your stay or book you into visiting another one of their amazing lodges within their offering. Simply work with Bush & Beyond to inquiry what else they have to offer.

Lucy Bethell Reynolds
It was a few years ago, in Kenya, that I first got the notion of Murmuration off the ground. After years of working individually with clients seeking to create a meaningful next chapter in their lives, I had the idea that such a journey might be more powerful and fun done in a cohort of like-minded women. We called it “Balance in the Wild,” and it proved the potential. Since then, I’ve been refining it and waiting for COVID to release it’s grip enough for us to participate in a deep, in-real-life experience.
In pursuit of what they truly want to do next in their lives, the biggest obstacle that women face are the many “shoulds” imposed by society and family-of-origin expectations. Often, these “shoulds” are unconsciously carried as driving forces. Yet, when voiced by others within a group setting, these “shoulds” are exposed as limitations and rendered less powerful. That’s when Murmuration starts to happen.
I would love to have you join us at one of our many Murmuration retreats if you are searching for what’s next in your life’s journey. I can promise you it will be transformational in many ways. We will also have a great deal of fun while in beautiful places around the world. -Lucy

I believe that every woman deserves to be invigorated by her path and proud of her impact. And, I believe that finding a way forward that is both uniquely true and beautiful to you can oftentimes be elusive. (Enter your ‘shoulds’ and self doubt here). Figuring out what’s next can be significantly clearer (and wayyy more fun) when you engage with powerful tools and are buoyed by the love and support of other women.
When Lucy asked me to join her in launching Murmuration my response was “oh heck yea!” Lucy and I have worked together for several years – both in non-profit endeavors and as a coach-client dyad. The content she has crafted is phenomenal and the way she engages with clients is both uplifting and effective.
I hope you will join us on this journey — wherever you might currently find yourself… You will find exceptional content, inspiring people and a new sense of clarity, purpose and fun. -Kelley
What’s the buzz on Murmuration?
It is hard to distill down what I enjoyed most about this experience. I think the magic really existed in the combination of all the elements. The natural setting, the small group dynamics, the trust formed, each session content building on the last. All of this helped to bring authenticity to the experience and allowed for space for vulnerable moments that we all needed.
I loved the community of interesting women, the time for self-reflection, the delicious meals and the time spent in nature.
All the workshop elements worked well together to give me an overview of my situation & how/what I want to take forward. It was good to experience different sessions to see what works for the individual e.g visualization, discussing with others, time on my own.
I appreciated the work that forced us to look to our past for inspiration for the future.
Overall this experience was the highlight of my year. I could not feel more lucky to have been a part of this experience. I talk about it often and glow about what a wonderful and magical time it was. It was a treasured experience and a real gift to myself which I rarely do. Thank you so much for putting it all together, especially for women who could use time for themselves.
An incredible four days in an amazing place where you experience everything the marketing tells you & more! Definitely worth doing, to take time out to re-evaluate & embrace some selfcare.
I really loved it and found it a very important and special journey to go on. I loved meeting the women on it and loved going through the process. Thank you!!
