Living on Purpose Workshop – Nov. 4th, 2018

Customizing Experiences for Personal Transformation

Ignite Retreats believes that every person is on a journey to live a fulfilled life. Sometimes, all it takes is having someone help you create a map for your own path. Sometimes you require an intervention to disrupt current unhealthy behaviors in your life. And sometimes, you need someone who has the experience to help you grow to the potential you know lays before you.

Ignite Retreats believes that we all benefit from the abundance that is created when individuals, couples and families understand their purpose and can live it authentically.

About Ignite Retreats


Executive Team/About the Firestarters

Ignite Retreats is the realization of a dream that Maurice and Tracy Thibodeau set out describing over 15 years ago.

Maurice Thibodeau

Through several very early influences, Maurice took on a discovery and belief in the value of living a purposeful life. It started with a variety of personal exercises and led to him becoming a certified Career Passion coach in 2002. With this, he led high school and university students through a Career Passion process that helped them discover what they loved and needed to do in their lives. He has continued to grow and explore this area of development in his personal and professional roles.

Tracy Thibodeau

Throughout her early adult years, Tracy embarked on a self-led journey to understand the workings of the mind. After nearly twenty years of study and practice, Tracy focuses her energy on helping individuals understand how their biology affects their behaviors and the power we have to choose.


In the first year of their marriage, Maurice and Tracy began their own personal Family Retreats. This was a weekend dedicated to reflection, connection, and identification of what it meant to live a purposeful life (corny – yes. Effective – tremendously).

Through these retreats and the continued study and practices from experts on the subject, they came to see the continued successes of their growth. One of their personal and family values is “Inspiration”. What they found was that one of the greatest gifts they could share with people was helping them to uncover the same level of fulfillment in their lives, their relationships, and their families.
