We are SUPER excited about this retreat, and you can tell… we’ve talked about it so much that our friends and family start rolling their eyes. 🙂 If you’ve been on the fence, let me invite you to the bright side with a quick Top 5 list of the reasons you should be joining us May 29-31.
(If you don’t need convincing and just haven’t bought your ticket yet, you can do so here.)
#5 – The Venue
We’re working with the Sts’ailes Lhawathet Lalem First Nations Healing Centre to create a beautiful, supportive environment to foster your growth. It’s located in Agassiz, along the Chehalis river, so close enough to the city to be accessible (about an hour and a half’s drive) but far enough away that you feel like you’re having a retreat. The space is beautiful, in the summer there are humming birds who come to the feeders along the back porch. You can have your breakfast outside while listening to the river rush past… It’s heaven. A weekend in nature can do wonders for reconnecting you from yourself (especially if you’re willing to brave the weekend without a cell phone in your hand!).
#4 – The Goddess Marketplace
It’s not every day you’ll find this many vendors – all women owned businesses who support the mind, body and soul – in the same place at the same time. We have curated a handful of vendors to create our marketplace… everyone has the same vision for the weekend: to arm you with tools to take back into your every day life to extend The Goddess Experience further. Aside from things to buy, Jacqueline from Beauty Reawakened is also going to be doing free mini makeovers and facials! The market will be open for a block of time on Saturday afternoon, but you’re welcome to browse during your downtime and in between sessions.
#3 – The Healing
So, this might sound hokey, but there is medicine in taking the time for self-care. Getting away from life’s demands can seen daunting but it’s actually really REALLY good for you! I’m talking about more than getting away here though… the type of workshops we’re doing will carry deep impact through the weekend in beyond. If you follow this blog you know how amazing I felt after nearly a month of meditation… The practitioners who’ve created these workshops are committed to being in loving service of the divine, and it’s reflected in their work. We have 8 workshops over the span of 3 days… there will be yoga, sacred dance, manifestation and more. You can check out all of the workshops here and start daydreaming about how good you’ll feel come Sunday afternoon.
#2 – The Gift Bag
Okay, let’s hit the breaks…. You’re not REALLY going to come to the retreat just for the gift bag at the end, are you? Our gift bag keeps growing and is already valued at over $300! Just in case you’re all about the swag, here’s some of what you’ll find inside:
- A double make over and photo shoot with Maggi Woo Photography
- A touch stone from Banyen Books and Sound
- A bath salt tea bag and solid perfume from us
- Tea from Steeped Tea consultant, Layne Mikoda
- A gift certificate from Shine Jewels
- With more to come!
Not to mention we’ve also crafted a gift basket with beautiful supports for you to take into your every day life. We’ll be doing a draw for that at the retreat – and you are automatically entered by purchasing a ticket.
#1 – Because you need it, you deserve it, and dang it: YOU’RE WORTH IT
I’m not sure there’s much else to say on this point… Really though, let’s get frank. How many times have you put off something you want because someone else’s needs came first? How often have you not done something you wanted to do because you didn’t “have the time” but in the end, wasted more of it scrolling through social media and not doing something that was fulfilling or nurturing to your soul? Life will always be busy. There will always be a reason to put things off. My invitation to you though is that if this calls to you, even a little bit, listen to the call… answer it. If you’re meant to be there, if this work is meant to inspire your heart and to impact your life for the better, you will find a way. And I am so excited to go on this journey with you.
