For your excitement, Golf is also available! You may inquire with the Lodge if you're interested in it. I recommend golfing before dinner on Friday or after lunch on Monday as we probably won't have pockets of a time long enough for a full round of golf during the retreat.
You will have time to enjoy the amenities and nature during our time at Sugar Lake Lodge. We will also provide opportunities for meditations, sound healing, Reiki blasts and tarot readings, and individual CYS and healthy boundary, inner child, shadow work sessions with Dan and Michelle, Cat, and more surprises. These "extras" are all optional. We will not ask you to participate in anything that does not resonate with you! We WILL challenge you and hold space for your choices of how to look within to establish old patterns, strengthen your abilities to find self-healing, and make shift happen for your best and highest good! We cannot wait to spend a long weekend with you creating life changes through incredible experiences within the sacred circle!

All About YOU!
Discovering your inner child. Read Michelle's blog about this here!
Have you met your shadow? There are pieces of our personality that we just don't want to look at. We often feel we must keep this hidden to be accepted. Let's discover those pieces of ourselves so we can accept them, love them, and perhaps even appreciate the lessons they teach us.
Meditation - It's not what you think! It's how you think it!
Inner Space, Zentangle®, and more.
Psycho-education with Cat, our doctorate-level psychologist
Find the patterns that are no longer serving you.
1:1 personalized sessions available at no extra cost!
Healthy Boundaries with Dan and Michelle
Psycho-education with Cat
During the breaks offered throughout the retreat we will offer private consults to dive into what comes up for you during our group sessions. Each participant who would like to dive further into making profound shifts will have the opportunity for private sessions to find clarity within and see that which can't be unseen.
Get purposefully inquisitive.
What is my lesson here? What is my life's purpose? Am I clear about my goals?
Is this (thought, feeling, emotion) mine and is it for my highest good?
Opportunity for a nightly evening ritual - Campfire with intention (Weather permitting)
Boardgames, sound healing, energy clearing, creative activities
Get ready to BE your Self and make your life intentional!
CLOSING THE CIRCLE
The sacred circle that is created during our time together is an important piece on the journey to personal development. We choose how deep we'd like to dive into Self, how many patterns we'd like to see, and what choices we'd like to make to heal at the highest level we are open to. It's important to come full circle when we choose to dive deep into self-healing. The work you do within will change not only your world, but also the world around you.
