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.

What to expect when attending Murmuration in Montana:

Day 1: Arrival Day

If you are flying into Montana you will want to plan your flights around Missoula (MSO) or Kalispell (FCS) airports. We are a 90-minute drive door-to door from either airport near the sleepy little town of Polson, MT on gorgeous Finley Point. Our team can help you plan your travel and transfers to/from the Rocking R Guesthouse.

Check-in time is between Noon-3:30 pm. We will kick off our Murmuration experience at 4 pm while getting to know one another as a cohort. Later we will enjoy a cocktail/wine hour by the fireplace and share a gorgeous meal together.

Day 2: Inner Wisdom

Our day begins at 8 am with gentle yoga followed by intention setting. We will then dive further into our experiential curriculum that will first awaken you to your Inner Wisdom which 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!

Day 3: Nature Wisdom

We will again start with yoga and intention setting 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 4: Collective Wisdom

Share one last coffee and breakfast with your cohort. Determine collectively your one-month meeting zoom time before heading home… You may book your flight onwards as early as you like this morning depending on your travel plans.

About Us

Lucy Bethell Reynolds

Murmuration Founder

Co-Curricular Design + Co-Lead Facilitator + Professional Certified Coach  (PCC) + Business Development

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

Katy Craig

Murmuration Principal

Co-Curricular Design + Co-Lead Facilitator + Professional Certified Coach  (PCC)

I come to Murmuration through improvisational theater where individual actors trust each other and connect strongly enough to get on the same wavelength, anticipate each others’ thoughts and actions, and create an entertaining show live on stage, without a script, in front of a paying audience. This is the courageous creative energy that I recognized when Lucy spoke to me about Murmuration. I know from my improv, coaching, and facilitation that as we raise our own vibrations through increased self-awareness and intentional action aligned with our values, we also raise our collective frequency as a community. The power of this vibrancy amplifies our impact in a way that’s substantive, dynamic, and delightfully surprising. I can’t wait to discover what it is we’ll create together. -Katy

Kelley Polson Pecis

Murmuration Principal

Business Development

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

Emma Gaty

Murmuration Social Media + Event Manager

After experiencing the magic of a Murmuration Retreat as a participant in 2022, I knew I had to get involved. Nothing gives me more joy than bearing witness to others stepping into their power, connecting deeply with themselves, and the journey of self-validation that comes from the positive vibration of a cohort radically sharing their truth.

I came to Murmuration with a career in Photography, starting my business at the age of 18, which led to my fascination with people, how the human mind works, and finding true connection with those I have had the privilege of photographing.
