CRAZY BLESSED WOMEN’S WEEKEND RETREAT                                                                        FRIDAY, OCTOBER 18TH (CHECK-IN 5:30-6:30PM) – OCTOBER 20TH (CHECK OUT 12-1:00PM)

WHERE: The Manor Lake Geneva (Bed & Breakfast) in Walworth, WI

JOIN US in this serene and tranquil environment outside Lake Geneva, as we support you to replenish, discover and ignite your soul’s wisdom.

This retreat includes hope, laughter, creativity, passion, and heart connection!

We are faced with so many things that draw us away from the most simple, deeply nourishing and fulfilling moments.  We are “crazy blessed” in this life, but sometimes, we just can’t see or feel it. The voices of “we are not enough”…”do this”…”you need this” take over.  What if we came back to the simple moments, realizing just how “crazy blessed” we are? What if we already have what we need to flourish, create balance and ride the wave of life?  Little secret…we DO! And we will spend the weekend discovering what that is for each of us.

Bask in the energy of like-minded women

That is why we have limited this retreat to a small intimate number of women in order to assure a powerful experience. Our intention is to provide solutions based on your specific challenges and in this small environment, your voice will be heard.

Reflect, create, connect, and recharge

The retreat blends personal reflection, guided meditations, meaningful activities, thought-provoking discussions, 1-on-1 coaching, tools for change, and creative expression into one powerful experience that will leave you feeling empowered, energized, and ready to move forward.  What a wonderful gift to give yourself!

Discover a safe space to explore, understand, and grow Connect to your intuition, reclaim your soul’s voice, feel empowered in your unique self-expression, and explore the wisdom of your heart. Being away from your busy life while connecting to nature’s beauty and surrounded by like-hearted women can deeply shift your perspective and create new inspiration.

Connections are created Friendships and relationships emerge, and perspectives understood as women return and find their way.  Support, encouragement and acknowledgment result from our respect for one another’s process.

  • Warm inviting stay at a beautiful bed and breakfast
  • Instructional sessions with reflection time
  • Journal and supportive materials
  • Group and 1:1 coaching

About Your Weekend Retreat Facilitators

Karen, Sharon, and Sheryl are three life coaches who came together in 2016, and realized that their goals and dreams were truly coming alive simply because they came together to set their intentions, claim them out loud, take action steps and honor one another’s desires.  They offered inspirational experiences to their clients on their own, but came together in 2018 to deliver three unique Sunday afternoon experiences for their very own “Own Your ‘18” community. In 2019, they decided to step it up by offering a weekend retreat creating a nurturing environment to help others set intentions, claim them out loud, take actions steps, and honor each other’s desires as well!

JOIN MY MEET-UP GROUP: Seeking to Live Life Soul Fully

 All of us are born with a natural intuitive ability to sense when something is right for us and when something is not in our best interest. But somewhere in our life, we lose the belief that we can trust ourselves. So how do we tap back into that gift of intuition? 

Are you someone who:
– is living a stressful, busy life and longs to feel more connected?
– has thought there has to be something more than this?
– would like to tap into your own intuitive abilities and expand your sense of self?
– is unsure where to start?
– wants to receive guidance & wisdom to trust yourself?
– longs for a sense of community to feel connected and safe?
– wants to learn tools to reduce overwhelm, shift those feelings to increase inner peace?
– would like to know yourself better in order to gain self acceptance?
– would like to learn the most useful ways that we can trust the information we receive?

Please join us and be a part of a supportive group who meets to grow and discover the parts of us that we thought we lost.

Where: The Therapy Tree, 89 Cedar Ave., Lake Villa, IL

When: Meets the 4th Tuesday of each month (please check website to confirm dates)

Time: 7:00pm-8:30pm

Cost: $5 per meeting

Schedule your session with me in my Lake Villa office at The Therapy Tree in Libertyville or at L Studio Lash & Skin Care Boutique in Libertyville.                               

In today’s busy world, stress and illness are commonplace and we become used to feeling “bogged down” as we lead such hectic lives. Even though we strive to eat well, sleep more, take time to relax and enjoy life, we may still have that nagging feeling of being disconnected. During your session, you will be reconnected to your true self and experience energetic healing in harmony with your body and soul. Whether because of physical illness or injury, emotional stress or spiritual uncertainty, your wellness will be uplifted and renewed.

Our bodies have a field of energy flowing around and through them. When this energy flow is restricted, there is an increased risk of depression, chronic disease, pain, and low energy. By connecting to Spirit and allowing oneself to receive this heart-centered energy of the angels, you will release negative patterns and beliefs to feel refreshed and energized with more focus to live a joy-filled life.

During our time together, you will feel a deep sense of relaxation while I connect with the universal energy surrounding you and through my hands, detecting any blockages to your energy flow. Using a gentle light touch, you will supported to release any limiting energy patterns and clear the blocks that are holding you back. You will experience a greater sense of balance in your life and discover your own power to feel connected.

Contact Karen at karen@soulysister.com or 847-508-6679 to schedule an appointment.
Cost: $45 for 30 minutes and $90 for 60 minutes. If you’d like to schedule an appointment in my office, please call or email me.
