How to Get in Touch with Your Inner Wonder Woman

Wendi GiulianoEver notice how Wonder Woman is a woman of action? She sees a situation and the voice inside her head tells her to go, run, do. She doesn’t waste time with negativity, insecurity, doubt or worry.

What is your inner voice saying to you? Does this voice propel you forward to reach your dreams or stop you in your tracks? Come join this fun and interactive workshop and find out what you are capable of and the action steps you will take to find your passion and joy in life. We all have a bit of Wonder Woman inside us and now is the time to unleash her!

Speaker – Wendi Giuliano, Managing Director and Regional Director with Polka Dot Powerhouse, whose mission is to connect the world’s most positive, action-forward, amazing women to build lifelong friendships and business relationships. 

Magnetize & Manifest

Carolyn MichelmanIf you struggle to achieve your goals, there is a good chance it’s more than just a time management issue. You most likely need to uplevel your energy field! Not just with a good nap or better nutrition (although both can help), you actually need to become the vibrational match for your desires!

Join this special workshop with Carolyn Michelman and learn how to align your energy with your dreams, and magnetize and manifest your goals so you can allow abundance into your life.

Tapping into Your Infinite Potential and Possibilities (utilizing EFT)

Did you know there are points in your body that when tapped can create a balance in your energy system? Tapping, or Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), is not magic, but a way to release what’s getting in your way so you can step into your power. Carolyn will show you how to use this technique to create clarity on what you really want and open the door to potential and infinite possibilities.

Speaker – Carolyn Michelman, founder of Rise & Shine Coaching, teaches and mentors women to step into a life full with more freedom, fun, fulfillment and joy. 

Free Your Inner Goddess

Lisa ToomeyEach one of us has a powerful inner goddess, but unfortunately as we go through life, she is often ignored, silenced or hidden away. It’s time to tap into her power!

During this workshop you will learn about mindfulness, practice meditation and examine what is holding your inner goddess back. These exercises will help you to take control of your own life, set goals and make positive choices. You’ll come away with a better understanding of your strengths as well as your weaknesses and be empowered to free your most authentic self.

Speaker – Lisa Toomey, Certified Hypnotherapist, Reiki Master, Sound Healer, author and owner of Infinite Love and Serenity, empowers and helps bring a sense of peace into peoples’ lives.  By infusing aspects of hypnotherapy, mindful meditation, sound healing and Reiki, she provides a safe space to relax as you’re guided into mindfulness while receiving Reiki healing energy.

Transform Your Life with Gratitude

Embracing a regular gratitude practice has been shown to promote physical and mental well-being. It can strengthen our relationships with others. Yet, all too often, gratitude practices become another item on the to-do list of our busy lives.

Join Deborah and explore the transformative power of gratitude on our lives … past, present and future. Discover ways to cultivate a meaningful gratitude practice that feels authentic, fits into your life and brings you joy.

Speaker – Deborah Buell is a Certified Life and Holistic Health Coach. She empowers women to trust to their inner wisdom and live intentional lives filled with joy, love and deep purpose.

The Simplified Life – How To Be More With Less

Do the words overwhelmed, over extended, over committed ring true to you?
We collect and hold onto possessions from the past, we stockpile and store things for “someday” in the future….and we are so weighed down that we don’t allow ourselves the spaciousness to embrace today.   Consider the impacts of clutter in every part of your life (there’s WAY more than you think!). Explore the roots of our belief systems around what’s “enough”.  Learn proven tools & strategies you can use to simplify your life.  Are you ready to live the simplified life?

Speaker – Eileen Kelly Reed is an Organizing & Productivity Coach and believer that living a more simplified life gives you the freedom to create a joyfully full, deeply meaningful and exceedingly abundant life.  Coaching small business owners & individuals how to Thrive (not just “survive”) in a life free from clutter, chaos & distraction is Eileen’s passion and purpose.

Magical Portal Soul Sessions with Carolyn Michelman – Through a combination of Oracle cards, Intuitive Art Drawing and your soul’s expression number you can access your unique key to creating a life with more freedom, joy, happiness, and magical moments. 45min session for $60 (retreat special regularly $120)

Reiki/Sound and Vibrational Healing Sessions with Lisa Toomey of Infinite Love and Serenity – utilize “universal energy” to encourage emotional and physical healing for the mind and body.  Reiki aids in relaxation, assists the body’s natural healing processes and develops emotional, mental and spiritual well-being. 30min session $45 or 60min session $85.

Massages will be provided by Cheryl Brusket, $80 for 60 minutes.
