  • Location:

    Northlight Studio in SODO Seattle


    802 6th Avenue South

    Seattle, WA 98134

    I chose this location for a few reasons. For one, it is owned by a local photographer and this space provides a beautiful, accessible studio and workspace for creatives to use. It attracts some of the areas top photographers for commercial and branding shoots as well as portrait work. Supporting this space supports the greater PNW creative community which makes me super happy.

    Another reason I love this location is for it’s vibe. It is super hip and modern. I have a few fun and creative experiences planned and this space will be perfect for them. Also, it’s central. Super easy to get to and close to Seattle’s best tourist attractions.

    Parking at the venue is street-level parking. There are also some public parking garages (pay by the hour or by the day) nearby.

  • Lodging:

    While lodging is not included in your retreat fee, we wanted to make some suggestions of hotels we know in the area. My hope is that you all decide to stay close to each other to further the bonding time you have. My hope is you chose to stay with a Mastermind friend! Adult sleepovers are my favorite!

    Fairmont Olympic Hotel

    Thompson Hotel Seattle

    And just so everything is in the same spot…

    Here’s the info on the GROUP HOUSE that several of you rented
    Address: 10616 Rainier Avenue South, Seattle, WA 98178

  • Travel:

    If you are flying in, the airport code is SEA (Seattle-Tacoma International Airport). The airport is arranged into multiple levels (on the pre-security side). Check-in and TSA are on the top floor which is also where you’ll exit from your flights. Baggage Claim is on the lower level and clearly marked. Exit doors have numbers marked overhead in red if you have someone picking you up and they need to know where you exited the airport.

    On the level between Baggage and Check-in, you can take skybridges across to the parking deck. If you have a hotel shuttle, rideshare, or taxi to catch, you’ll need to cross the Skybridge. This is where it gets a little weird. If you walk across a skybridge, you are now on the 4th floor of the parking deck. Take the escalators down one floor (to 3rd floor of the deck) for Lyft/Uber or for hotel shuttles.

    You will be responsible for getting to and from the retreat location as well as any off-site dinner locations (all will be super close by.)

    Rideshares/Uber/Lyft are all available in Seattle.

    There is also a Light Rail that runs from the airport directly into Seattle. It is by far the fastest and cheapest way to get directly into the city.

  • Food:

    Lunch and dinner will be provided on Saturday and Sunday. (Saturday dinner will include wine.) Please let our team know if you have any food allergies prior to arrival.

    Cohort 1 members are also invited to a Founders Dinner on Friday, January 28th at 6:30pm. The dinner will be held at

    Tavolata (Capitol Hill).

    501 E Pike Street

    (Summit Avenue) Seattle, WA 98144
