About Wendy Battino
I help men and women create the life they want to live. I teach you how to live fearlessly with integrity and in peace.
If you hear the call, I want to welcome you to my home…in Talkeetna, Alaska.
Share a unique opportunity to experience deep oneness with nature.
Join me and get behind a team of dogs,
snowshoe through the silent winter,
experience the beauty of huskies,
and feel the invitation to ultimate freedom.
Have you dreamed of experiencing the real Alaska?
Alaska in winter is as real as it gets, and in March the light is returning and the magic is palpable.
Come with me for a transformational experience that will light your life.
I will teach you to connect with the peace that is calling you home. I am a Life Coach, BARE Health and Wellness Coach, and an Intuitive and I want to show you around my Alaska. An outdoor adventurer, I have experienced powerful medicine in the natural world and gained strength and leadership over my life. I use nature to help people remember their full brilliance and then to SHINE. I dreamed up this retreat in order to show you how you can tap into your inner strength at any time and track where your best life wants to take you. We will do this with playful dogs, crazy-gorgeous scenery, and you in your glory running a team of dogs with the biggest smile on your face.
Luzy wants to meet you! She is my soul sister, personal comedienne, wise woman, and mischievous crazy guru. She is an Alaskan sled dog and my expedition partner. Luzy teaches us how to communicate wordlessly with animals and will gently instruct you on the finer points of dog power. She knows you want to join in this epic adventure. You can check out her wisdom at #Luzylessons on my Facebook and Instagram pages.

The Denali Overlook Inn is simply scrumptious! This is the ultimate place for our deep dive into peace and power in a wilderness setting.
Situated on the tip of a spectacular bluff which provides unobstructed views of Denali (20,310′), Mt. Foraker (17,400), & Mt. Hunter (14,573). It sits high above the Birch Creek wetlands, offering panoramic views of the Alaska Range and the Talkeetna Mountains.
This spectacular lodge is all ours for the retreat. We will meet in the stunning Great Room which spans 52 feet across and inspired by the views we can map out our activities and your best life. Plenty of opportunity to spy the northern lights as well as wildlife (see the moose below!)
You will rest from the days exhilarations in your gorgeous private bedroom with private bath. Each room offers a different scenic view of mountains and has its own special qualities.
I cannot wait to show you Alaska. Your home and base of operations for your adventure is a historic town overlooking the confluence of three major rivers and 2 major Mountain ranges. Talkeetna is the headquarters for climbers making their way to climb Denali (Mt. McKinley), North America’s tallest peak, and a mecca for a variety of adventurers the world over. Denali and the other peaks of the Alaska Range offer a magnificent backdrop for this picturesque town of 800+ people, located about two and a half hours north of Anchorage and accessible by road & rail.
I live here because of the natural beauty and because of the people. Our friendly town is home to adventurous souls, people who build planes, boats, paddles, houses, children, music, plays, dog teams, community centers, fix things, create, shape and beautify the world.
I want you to come here and share this spirit to make your own of the beautiful life you have.
