Medicine for the Soul Retreat Details


Our “Medicine for the Soul” retreat taking place November 15-22, 2020 at Taladya Homestay in Chiang Mai, Thailand will be a week including a combination of amazing adventures. We will visit sacred and treasured places around Chiang Mai, learning spiritual practices to weave into every-day life, rituals, ceremonies, heart-centered conversation, delicious organic meals together, sharing circles, spiritual growth, time on your own to do whatever delights you, experience various styles of yoga such as Yin, Restorative, Kundalini and gentle flow, meditation, laughter, incredible rejuvenation, nourishment and personal transformation. Each day will be special and unique and filled with magic! Wherever you are is perfect (including if you’ve never done yoga before) All aspects of the retreat are optional so you can participate as little or as much as you prefer. This is your precious time for self-care


Through my own experiences, I have this deep commitment to inspire, empower, and connect with you on your healing journey. As a teacher, my primary purpose is to be a student every day! The world is my classroom and people are my assignments. 

Do you ever…

  • Feel stressed, anxious, depressed, and/or often exhausted?

  • Feel blocked, stuck, and disconnected from the flow of life?

  • Desire to create a change in your life but do not know where to begin?

  • Crave more joy, more love, and compassion in your life?

If so, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. Through my own challenges of struggling with Chronic Lyme Disease, I have discovered the gifts of many restorative healing modalities that I would love to share with you.


Right now, you have the opportunity to commit to your greatness, to owning and claiming your capacity to live the life you truly desire. I will provide you with various healing tools as an anchor to get grounded to experience personal growth and transformation. This is about having the willingness to show up knowing that we do not have to do it all at once. We need to allow ourselves to have the courage to be imperfect. 

If we can surrender to the willingness of seeing these healing practices through the lens of love, we allow ourselves to come back home to the True Self: where courage, compassion, and connection resides, always. 

So, close your eyes and imagine yourself in Thailand…..Join us for a transformational retreat of a lifetime. You deserve it!
