As I prepare for the upcoming Shakti Sisterhood Retreat in Bali
, I have been reflecting on why travel is so important for the soul. We get out of or comfortable routines; we see that our world is grander than we imagined. We see that we have options, choices and also to remember what we are grateful for in what we do already have in our lives. And we realize that we are not alone in our desires and larger life goals.
For the last 4 years, I have gone on international travels by myself to engage in learning opportunities. Traveling alone is a gift and a challenge, because we are able to feel a sense of freedom, while navigating the anxiety of being alone and unknown.
I remember arriving in Bali this year, not knowing a soul...or even where I was going to sleep that first night. And then, I surrendered to grace, took some deep breaths, and listened to my body and heart. I simply used my inner guidance and asked around for what I needed: Taxi, homestay, a restaurant.
Walking into a restaurant, all alone, in a foreign land, as a woman made my heart flutter.
Riding on the back of a motorbike with a Balinese "transport" driver brought me excitement and fear.
Arriving at an open mic Kirtan brunch all alone had me so nervous. I sat down next to a smiling woman, and after some moments of me wondering what I was doing in this place, she spoke to me, and we instantly became friends.
I kept stepping through fear and nervousness, and let that fear transform into excitement. Before I knew it, I had met a producer and I began recording the album that I have been dreaming about for 3 years....
Magic is like that. We can't predict it. We don't know all of the answers. It comes spontaneously, and usually after we take big leaps of faith.
My intention in inviting you to join me in Bali is to experience this magical land, which is truly an energetic vortex on our planet Earth. I experienced HUGE transformation, excitement and growth on my journey.
This is why I am inviting 11 women will to come together in Bali to celebrate, transform, empower and live fully.
I know from my own experience that the work we do within ourselves has the power to transform and heal many people. This is why we go on retreat.
Here is the full retreat schedule:
We currently (as of Sept. 16) have 5 spots available, and I am so curious to see who is called to join us on this adventure. I have a Facebook group for all of our attendees to connect prior to the retreat, and I can answer any questions you might have about international travel, etc.
I so look forward to guiding this retreat. I am also excited to announce that my dear friend Sherry Mosley, MSOM, CSP will be joining us in Bali. She will teaching a 2 hour workshop on Accessing our Akashic Records! She will teach us how to experience them and their Divine wisdom and knowledge of your past, present and future lives, help you clear karma and contracts and follow your soul's destiny instead of outdated or learned patterns, fears and anxieties. The healing energy of being in your own Akashic Records also shifts you to a higher vibration which you will feel upon opening your records and which will help you align with who you are at your soul level. I personally am so excited to experience this knowledge that I have been so curious about for years!
