Hear what past attendees have said:

“The Elite Retreat was an altogether amazing and fulfilling experience. Imparted with both educational and clinical knowledge, the supportive and nurturing atmosphere fostered great professional and spiritual growth. And while each of us in attendance may have arrived as individuals, we all left as a family of holistic practitioners armed with great knowledge and confidence, united to help those around us in achieving a much greater level of health and wellness, one that we all deserve.”
– Dr. Jason Pape, NY
– THE Elite Retreat multiple year attendee


“I’ve been in many programs and this one rivals the experience”

– Dr. Katherine Kadin

“After doing several of Dr. B’s online webinars and joining I4L for a few months, THE Elite Retreat was like coming home and connecting with family I didn’t know I had. It was also a place and time to deeply connect with myself.”

– Dr. Jenny Armstrong

Retreat Times & Agenda:

THE Elite Retreat is held in Idaho Falls, ID where Dr. Buerger currently practices. The first two/three days (*) are spent covering practical (left brain) information in-order to raise our potential for the wellbeing of our practice members and community! This is an intimate time spent with Dr. Buerger and long-time mentees to gain, grasp and soak up all the knowledge they collectively have to offer.


The Saturday of the retreat is a time for US!  We spend the day in our “right brain” celebrating our awesomeness with our “Soul Healing Saturday”!  This day has become known for its transformation on EVERY LEVEL and is an ABSOLUTE MUST in-order to re-boot, ground and re-energize your soul!


Saturday night wraps up with an incredible five course dinner and wine pairing curtesy of Dr. Buerger and her husband, Michael!
