Are you ready to tap into the incredible power of your intuition and rediscover the boundless joy that life has to offer? 

Our exclusive three-day immersive retreat is designed to guide you on a journey of self-discovery, intuition awakening, and joy rekindling like never before.

The Importance of Joy

Do you…

-sometimes feel lost and overwhelmed by anger, fear, sadness, or grief during turbulent times?

-have a vague sense that there is something more to life than your day-to-day struggles, something your spirit is calling you to do?

-already have a strong spiritual awareness but are still learning how to fully integrate that knowing into the reality of your daily experiences?

You’re not alone. 

During these turbulent times, many find their careers, health, relationships, and identities are uncomfortably shifting and they need support in navigating the rivers of change.

By connecting with your inherent joy and intuitive nature, you can discover the deeper meaning in these struggles. 

It can guide you in healing the hurts that keep you feeling stuck and alone. 

It can connect you with your greatest wisdom, power, and truth, and illuminate and enrich every aspect of your life.

Throughout this three-day experience, you’ll learn to decode the language of your soul and enhance this channel of communication. 

You’ll do it by raising your vibration to align with your highest guidance and by deeply tuning in to your own humanity, identifying any places that still hurt and learning to soothe and transform that pain.

Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, this life-changing weekend will take you to the next level!
