All too often, my sister and confidant, Crissy, and I will joke about escaping the busy-ness of our lives, leaving behind the craziness of raising children, and go to a cabin in the middle of the woods, with no wifi, electricity or connection to the outside world. It’s our laugh-it-off fantasy, as we bustle through our days.

And yet….

There’s something inside of me that yearns to get away, to reconnect with my soul without any other distractions.

I guess that’s what enticed me to say yes when I was asked about doing a spiritual retreat for women. To bring into the world what I desired most for myself.

And I invite you to join me.

After all, I can’t be the only woman desiring this (can I?)

Taking place at the Bark Lake Conference Center and Campgrounds, the Spiritual Wellness Retreat is being put together by Rustic Mama Retreats and Firefly Mediums (the side business that focuses on charity work through mediumship and group events). We have been hard at work over the past couple of months, getting a feel for what we are wanting to bring to the table, who we are getting on board, and what our overall vision of the weekend will look like.
I can’t tell you everything, as there won’t be any surprises, but I can tell you this.  

This is exactly what your Soul has been looking for.

With workshops based on connecting you within, enhancing your knowledge of your own spiritual stuff, activities for you to create, body movement, and help with overcoming fears (in some really freakin’ awesome ways!) this is sure to be a fun filled weekend where you can recharge your batteries and raise your vibes all at the same time. You will also have a chance to receive some energy healing, have your cards read, and enjoy some intimate connection with spirit in a group setting.

Best part? You don’t have to cook! That’s right! For three whole days, you will receive meals and snacks, included in the price of the retreat! (Sign me up!)

All of this is only $488 & taxes. A $100 deposit is used to secure your spot.

Are you ready for your escape? Join us here:

Until next time,
