Reiki Renewal Retreat – Spring Equinox in Laguna Beach, California


Me at Crystal Cove Beach

As promised, I’m excited to start announcing one of the upcoming retreats I’ve been creating for 2014. This one is an answer to requests by others, as well as had been a nudge since last year.

Reiki Renewal Retreat – Spring Equinox in Laguna Beach, California

Thursday, March 20th – Monday, March 24th 

Immerse yourself in a weekend away from everyday life and allow yourself permission to be empowered, inspired, transformed, and renewed. This is a perfect way to celebrate the renewal of Spring, as a mirror to your own revitalization, and to do something for you that has far-reaching benefit. The Reiki Renewal Retreat is not only a Certification Retreat designed to provide you with a quantum leap in personal healing integration, but will also give you powerful tools to support the full scope of your life and help you to make meaningful changes with positive impact.


Crystal Cove Beach

You will not only have access to me for the full weekend experience with lots of group and one-on-one feedback, but you will have the opportunity to connect with other like-minded souls, while being nurtured and supported. This is a perfect gift to self for personal enrichment and/or professional certification.

There is opportunity for free time, as well as a free “integration” day where you can immerse in the beautiful nature offered here through hiking, biking, beach time – including my favorite beach, Crystal Cove. Crystal Cove is a magickal beach where you’ll enjoy strolls, relaxing, and exploring the tidepools. You may even see pods of dolphin, sea lions, starfish, a plethora of sea birds, and depending on time of year even whales. I’m constantly in awe of the energetic beauty of this special, off-the-beaten-track beach. There are several other beautiful beaches you can choose from too, as well as check out Laguna’s shops and galleries, or even take in a world-class spa experience at one of the local resorts.


Shane Chunephisal

We are also going to be blessed by the amazing Shane Chunephisal – Sound Healer and Massage Therapist. (I’ll be sharing more about him in one of my upcoming healing arts, visionary leaders interviews). Shane will be our on-site Meta-Sense Sound Bath Extraordinaire, as well as our resident therapist who will be available during free times to offer all types of body work, including crystal healing, sound therapy, and integrated energy therapy. (For more details on his beautiful offerings throughout the entire weekend, see the schedule below).

Everyone is invited and there are no pre-requisites to joining, other than bringing along an open heart. Even if you’re not feeling so open, but that is one of your intents to change, I promise you will have a breakthrough expansion from this experience.

We each have a beautiful song to share with the world and opening yourself to Reiki is one way of igniting your individual voice so that you can share your unique gifts and add to the beauty of the collective symphony.


Crystal Cove Beach

Everyone’s experience will be different, but your retreat for a weekend of combined self-nurturing and service will help you to reconnect with parts of you that you’ve forgotten. You can come with a personal intention or be open to receiving exactly what is needed most in your life at this time.

My intent is to create a loving and connective group experience, while focusing on individual needs as well.

Reiki Master Teacher training with me

This will be an intimate group experience and space is very limited, so if this calls to your heart, don’t hesitate to take that step in the direction of a more empowered you.

Both locals and non-residents are invited (see below for details).

You are welcome to join as a refresher if you’ve already taken Reiki Levels 1 and/or 2, or even if you’ve taken all 3 Levels. Some people have had training years ago and find taking the classes at this point in their lives to be a completely new and different experience, relative to where they’re at and the difference in teaching styles.

*If you are a local and have already taken one of my classes, but would like to further your training, you can come for just the class you desire and can share in the activities, as well as meals, for the given day of your class. Locals are also welcome to stay at the accommodations for a getaway weekend.

Where You’ll Be Staying:


Spectacular sunset at Crystal Cove Beach

Laguna Beach is southern California’s premier, seaside destination midway between Los Angeles and San Diego with world-renowned sunsets and picturesque coastline. A year-round retreat for art lovers, nature enthusiasts and beach-goers, Laguna Beach is a resort for all seasons that features seven miles of soft sand and the sound of the surf, as well as is perhaps Orange County’s least-overdeveloped beach town and one of its most beautiful. Created as an artist’s getaway, Laguna Beach retains an artistic essence, with nice galleries and fun arts festivals. Laguna Beach is great almost any time of year, but like most of the California coast is susceptible to days where the Sun may decide to rest behind the clouds and this creates a beautiful mystique of its own.

Our Laguna Beach deck with view for the weekend

Your home for the weekend is a “Top of the World” Luxury Laguna Beach, California home set in the hills with panoramic views from every vantage point of mountains, valleys, and ocean by day, and sweeping city light views by night of this artsy beach town. This provides you the chance to breathe in fresh air, sleep deeply, and feel revitalized each day. You’ll be minutes from the beach, including my favorite beach, Crystal Cove, as well as a few minutes walk to hiking trails or 10 minutes drive to other favorite trails.

Retreat Weekend General Schedule (subject to shift, as I do like to flow): All Activities are Optional

Thursday, March 20th – Spring Equinox

3pm Arrival, Settle In, and Welcome Reception out on the view deck with appetizers and refreshing drinks (if you come in earlier, you can enjoy the beach or Laguna shops and galleries before checking in)
6:30pm Dinner and Dessert
8:00pm Spring Equinox Star Gazing Crystal Bowl Sound Bath & Meditation (We will only be 4 days after the Full Moon of March 16th, so the sky night should be bright to hold our ceremony on the deck with tea and still within the energy of this Moon phase). This will kick start our weekend with some high vibes and clarity of intentions.
The rest of the evening is yours to star gaze, reflect, or get a good night’s rest from your travels

Friday, March 21st:

What You Will Come Away From This Experience With:

  • Not only is this a retreat weekend, but unlike some other retreats you will come away with Full Certification in Reiki Levels 1, 2, and 3 Master Teacher (This is a $1000 Value on its own) – You will learn how to self treat, as well as treat others both hands-on and by distance, and gain tools to support any intentions and healing integration in your life and the lives of others. You will also have the skills to teach. Whether you think you will ever teach or not, you will gain skills to help nurture more confidence, commitment and responsibility, while being able to attune others to Reiki. This can be beneficial even if just for close friends and family, if in fact you don’t teach professionally.
  • Come away inspired to live more fully and consciously from your highest potential
  • Feel more connected to everything, including a new soul family of friends
  • Feel empowered and renewed from a weekend of commitment to you, eating healthy meals, spending time in nature, and immersing in a conscious spiritual journey, leaving with new experiences and perspectives, as well as deeper connection to your path
