Embrace Your Feminine Spirit and Awaken Your Inner Wise Woman

Nov 1, 2018 – Nov 4, 2018

Embrace Your Feminine Spirit and Awaken Your Inner Wise Woman is a weekend retreat for any woman who desires to live in greater harmony with herself. It is designed to help cultivate a deeper connection to your inner power and learn to trust your intuitive wisdom as a guide through life.

Through this retreat, we will bring attention to and alignment in the four dimensions of wellness and wholeness: Physical, Mental, Emotional, and Spiritual.

We will explore ancient rituals and practices such as the Medicine Wheel, Council Practice, Yoga, Meditation, and the guidance of Mother Nature. Each tradition is incorporated to help you to find peace and process life’s challenges.

We will build a supportive, trusting community during our time together. We will reflect and listen to each other as we move through the joys and struggles of being a woman. Sitting in council, we are encouraged to speak from the heart and bear witness to each other in solidarity and without judgement. In this way, we share our gifts of vulnerability, love, and wisdom with each other.

Executive Leadership Retreats

Thursday August 2, 2018 8AM – 5 PM

Executive Leadership Retreat- Full Day
This leadership retreat will engage each leader in the development of their strengths. The Strengths
Finder assessment will be used as the foundation.

Strengths Finder 2.0

o The Strengths Finder 2.0 assessment is used to identify the areas where an individual or team has the greatest potential for building upon their strengths. It measures recurring patterns of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Knowing this information gives individuals a new level of self-awareness that enables them to leverage talents in the workplace.
o This leadership development retreat will help leaders to become aware of and better understand their natural born gifts and talents. By gaining this new level of self-awareness, leaders will be able to better utilize their Strengths in their leadership roles leading to greater impact with their team members. Gaining insight into the 34 Themes of Strength will help leaders understand one another; while also providing valuable insights to the individual.
o Leaders will be given opportunities for real time expression of their own strengths. In addition, they will have interactive activities allowing them to learn about the strengths of others.
o The leaders will engage in various self-awareness building activities for example, meditation, Earthing, Forest Therapy, and an outdoor adventure of Stand-up Paddle Boarding.
Each of these activities will allow leaders an opportunity to experience the re-connection of mind and body encouraging personal growth and introspection. Additionally, their strengths will be challenged and real time expression will be experienced.

Workshop Outcomes

o The Strengths Finder teaches leaders how to leverages individual/team strengths. It has a positive focus and has been shown to improve morale as it highlights what is
“right” with people rather than “wrong”.
o Individuals will leave feeling empowered and equip to utility their strengths, as well as, having an understanding of the Strengths of others. They will have gained a new level of self-awareness allowing them to better manage relationships, behaviors, and
emotions personally and professionally.
o Leaders will gain a new perspective about themselves, their teams, and their organization.

Reiki Level I – Practitioner
Reiki is a universal healing technique that works predominantly on the physical level of healing in Level I, but expands into the emotional and mental, as well as, spiritual planes as one attains further levels. It is one of the oldest and most trusted of techniques and has been verified effective over centuries of usage. In modern times research done at Harvard University and others, have shown itself to be safe and extremely useful in the reduction of complications from surgery or in the healing of complex health conditions. Used in many Operating Rooms across the country, Reiki has become nearly mainstream.

In Reiki Level I, we learn the energy systems of the body and how to see auric fields. We practice hands on techniques for self-healing and for working with others. We learn about Reiki’s history and origins and are introduced to dowsing, as well as, working with the innate skills we already possess to enhance them. Everyone taking the course will receive a treatment and will give one. Further resources include a handbook and access to reliable information to learn more about Reiki.
This is a certification course, so please give your full name at sign up so your certificate is accurately created.
The class is approximately four hours but may run a little longer.
