As the Fall leaves change and gracefully drop from their homes, a group of women will be embarking on a yoga shamanic island retreat in Minnesota. Tucked away not far from Battle Lake, MN sits a little private peninsula (called Xanadu Island). A place of betwixt and between. Hugged by water ~ where access to our buddha chitta knowing stands in the middle ~ the veil reveals and we Rise!
For just one day
you stepped out
You slowly yet deliberately
unzipped the suit
the suit of warrior armor
that adorns your flesh and bones
the one that has helped you for lifetimes
yet in this moment
in this blink of time
Lean in a little closer ~ she said. I stepped forward and hugged her warmly ... I could feel her arms drip down in attempts to embrace me in return. The direct exchange of loving energy floated between us ~ and the tree (and I) smiled in unison ~ soaking in the profound connection we were sharing.
Have you hugged a tree lately? Have you gotten in real close to nature and listened to her wisdom?
POSTPONED: New Date & New Lication coming soon!! 🌀✌🏻
Draped in the New Moon energies ~ I will be guiding you to receive “whispers from nature”.
The cosmic energies are swirling around and within you. The “super” full moon is about to work her grandmother action. She will be dropping her ear nice and cozy close to us humans ~ where she will be listening intently ~ being the closest she has been all March. She is geared up to “worm” into your life and whisper sweetness to your soul. A bit like the close talker from Seinfeld ~ but you will want to lean in towards her voice of wisdom.
Quite your mind, open your heart, and live with more compassion. Easier said than done but once you learn the ancient and research supported tool of meditation ~ you will be on your way to a heart conscious living.
A sitting practice to go in. Dive deep. & Listen.
Listen for the infinite wisdom that is awaiting in the crevices of You.
Open the window inside your chest
And let the spirits
Fly in & out
The YOU that is pure love and light. The depths of you where compassion is the default.
Now is the time to receive and share from your awakened radiant light. Join me ...
She could see half of the cat and the rest disappeared. As the mist engulfed the entire furry feline, Stef rose from the bed and followed. She was visibly angelic ~ her essence filled with peace, beauty and calm. Theresa had witnessed her sister pass through the spiritual veil ~ being lead by her faithful kitty friend. Stef’s human suffering with cancer was over and her new journey had begun.
Being formerly agnostic ~ not knowing how or what to believe ~ Theresa was forever changed. She had seen truth.
We sat cross-legged casually facing each other on the bear skin rug. My shaman guide smiled and spoke for the first time “is hawk a spirit animal that works with you”? A smile donned my lips and an audible yes filled the space. “He is circling the parking lot from where you just came”. We both looked out the window and smiled with a deep knowing.
Peaceful Warrior Woman Retreat @ Ottertail Lake, MN
August 25th & 26th, 2018
In 2016, I was called to create a Women's Awakening Festival. Incredible souls showed up from all over the midwest (and further) to embark on a journey to wake up their "authentic ~ creative truth" (5th chakra energies). The energies continued into 2017 as the theme evolved into the beauty of "intuitive knowing" (6th chakra energies) at the 2nd Annual Women's Awakening Festival. And now, here we are in the midst of 2018. With my ear to my heart, I have been receiving new guidance.
During a recent FaceTime chat with a soul sister, I shared that I had just created a cozy boho space in my basement. I’ve had that little dream in my heart for awhile and it is was so fun to see all the little enjoyable projects turn into something magical.
Dancing from one thing to the next.
Mow the yard. Get my walk in. Clean the kitchen. Write a blog post. Weed-wack around the trees. Promote the Women’s Awakening Festival. Drink some water. Teach a yoga class. Clean the bathroom. Did I eat lunch? Sneak in a few pages of reading. Hop on the kayak. Return client texts. Sneak in dinner. Return client emails. Ahhh…I could go on and on. For this redhead (and I am sure you too) are hard to slow down during the season of fire.
