When you said yes to the path of a healer, an entrepreneur, and a magical being did you realize how lonely it could be?
I had no clue what I signed up for!
It’s like being a unicorn in a field of horses.
And I didn’t even realize this was happening when I was in it. This feeling was masked by me being super busy meeting lots of people, going to tons of networking events, having sessions with clients, and focusing my energy on marketing, taking lots of trainings to grow my business.
When this "loneliness" became clear was when I became a yoga teacher. I had longed to be part of a larger spiritual community with more purpose.
As a teacher, there was only a few minutes between classes to connect with the other teachers when we checked in students. And then once I was teaching a class, I was the only one talking while everyone was in their own space. After class I’d get a thank you but people moved on with their day and I went home.
I’m not complaining, but it was fascinating to witness this happening. It felt like a thin layer of community, just like it did being in business.
And I knew I longed for more.
🦄 You live in a small town and it seems like you are the only one, or one of the few who is doing this kind of healing work.
🦄 You feel like your friends and family don’t really get you.
🦄 You spend all day with clients, focusing on them and their needs, but no one really asks how you are doing. And even if they do, you don’t feel like you can really share openly about what’s really going on, in fear they may not see you as a competent healer any more, plus it may not be the most appropriate conversation to have with them at that time.
🦄 You feel extra vulnerable sharing your struggles and even your successes with other healers in your community.
🦄 You know you want to expand and become bigger yet you are surrounded by others who are caught in struggle, scarcity, and in their own limitations. And when you get together you just feed off each other, getting nowhere fast.
🦄 You are holding space for you, your clients, and your family. But no one is holding space for you in the way that will have you mastering your own energy.
🦄 You realize how good a giver you are, but you are having a challenging time letting yourself receive and letting people in. You don't want to get hurt or be disappointed again.
🦄 You go to large events or take online programs with little personalized support, or read tons of books leaving you to apply their teachings to your own business by yourself staying stuck in your head.
🦄 You’ve found a beautiful community online, writing back and forth, but something is still missing without the face-to-face connection.
These are all reasons why I have found retreats and small groups to be the most beneficial for me and those I work with.
I need this for myself and my expansion, too.
As I prepare for the upcoming Peaceful Magic Retreat for Healers in a few days, and having spent this past month with local friends and healers in our own retreats, I am blessed to be surrounded by other magical beings who get me, who want to collaborate, who want to embrace their own magical selves and share their gifts with others.
Here's a sneak peak into what happens when a small, conscious, magical community comes together.
✨You get to be seen in a way you’ve never been seen before.
✨You get unstuck and create movement in all areas of your life.
✨ You get focused personalized attention with what you are experiencing in your life and in your business.
✨ You feel heard and understood.
✨ And you are caused to expand and grow bigger because you are held in higher energy than you’ve been living in.
✨ You have lifelong friends and colleagues who are expanding alongside you.
✨ You get a sense of what it's like to feel peaceful, magical, and prosperous.
✨ You get to see what’s possible beyond your current circumstances and your own thoughts.
✨ You get to have more fun than you imagine, things happen quicker than you expect, and easier than you thought.
This happens every, single, time I attend a small, intimate retreat and when I host one for others.
So my advice is to…
Acknowledge the truth of how lonely you are. It’s okay to admit this. And it’s okay to want something different.
Acknowledge how hard it’s been to try to expand and cause yourself to be bigger when you are spinning in your current beliefs, experiences and current energy and current environment.
Check in with your inner knowing and see if it’s time to be supported by someone who is in the energetic space of where you want be.
It took me YEARS before I was willing and really ready. So I get it if you’re not there yet.
It can be scary to invest in yourself, especially if you have a lack of self-trust and confidence.
And it may feel like you can do it on your own.
However, if you feel like you are ready to claim yourself as a unique healing unicorn and you want to be with other unique healing unicorns, come play with us.

You don’t have to do this alone.
And I will even go on a limb to say you can’t do it on your own.
Not because I don’t ‘believe in you and your capacity, but because you have blindspots.
We all do.
You don’t know what you don’t know.
And you are probably really tired.
Transformation is way more efficient and FUN when you are in a community of high-vibrating, healers who are expanding.
If you feel as lonely as I used to, feel free to reach out and connect with me. And if you are not part of our community on Facebook, come join us.
With peace, love, and a lot of magic,
Throughout the year I offer a few, select opportunities to a small group of women who are ready to experience more play, remember how magical they are, and truly come home to themselves.
All of my retreats are intimate, limited to eight or less women who are ready to master surrender and experience serendipity.
Retreats are either held over zoom or in person at our retreat space in Hood River Oregon.
