CALLING IN THE SPIRIT

A RETREAT STEPPING INTO YOUR AUTHENTICITY AND INNER WILD WOMAN

Bowen Island, BC // Autumn 2019

Do you crave coming home to yourself?

What if I said that you already have everything to reclaim your power, unlock your wisdom, dance with your emotions, and explore your shadows?

Everything you need is within you.

I have created a safe container in which you can be seen, heard, witnessed and loved while you explore your healing. Dive deep to discover how integrating mind, body and spirit through the teachings of Chinese Medicine can help you step into your most authentic and aligned life.

When a group of well-intentioned women show up willing to be brave, vulnerable and witnessed, something magical happens. During our weekend together, we will dive into each of the Five Elements/Emotions of Chinese Medicine to discover how they manifest in the human spirit. This will help you identify your virtues and challenges to unravel your personal blocks and support your growth. The weekend curriculum is comprised of lectures, meditations, guided journaling, group-work, yoga and home-cooked meals to create an environment in which mind, body and spirit harmonize. 


The Curriculum

We will dive into each of the Five Elements as they are taught in my Chinese Medicine lineage.

FIRE - IGNITE YOUR CURIOSITY: Sometimes life pulls you away from what is fundamental to your sense of security and fulfillment - a connection to yourself. We will spend the first evening uncovering that connection to really clarify what your curiosity is and reconnect to that spark within. 

EARTH - DISCOVER YOUR ABUNDANCE: Where you place your attention is where energy flows. Do you find yourself putting all your care into areas that are external to yourself, leaving you depleted and resentful. You will walk away from this section armed with tools for abundance.

METAL - CRYSTALLIZE YOUR VALUES:  The gift of metal is that it cuts right to what is pure so let's get laser-focused. We will get to what your core values are to identify what drives your actions. Hint: You may need to let go of something that no longer serves you in order to invite new energy in. This session will empower you to release with love and invite in the good with intention.

WATER - DIVE DEEP INTO YOUR POTENTIAL: Are you ready? How is fear holding you back from living your true potential? Fear has an uncanny way of pulling us into our past wounds or pushing us forward into a scary and unknown future. Learn the skill of diving deep to help keep you grounded in the present moment.

WOOD - ALIGN YOUR PATH: Wood is all about action. But oftentimes, life feels like a Choose Your Own Adventure novel with no right answers. After having gone through the weekend, you will be clearer about what your vision is and we will complete the weekend with an exploration on how to make decisions from a place of empowerment, alignment and ease.

“The Spirit of the Elements retreat was such an amazing experience. Kat picked the most serene location that helped put us at ease right from the start. I was able to meet a group of strong women from all ages. There was no judgement, no bias, just kindness, empathy and support for one another. It was a beautiful and healing experience. I have nothing but gratitude to Kat and all the women who helped make the retreat so uplifting and for the profound sisterhood that developed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
