RV Journey Updates for Soul Friends & Clients

We are finally at closure in California, as tomorrow we head off and won’t be returning for an unforeseen time.

Seems like it took a while, but all of the journey is necessary and has been perfect to what was needed. I’ve learned not to rush things in order to flow with divine alignment.

So, unless there’s business or an event we need to be a part of, in which case we’d fly in, we’re heading out of Blythe, CA in the AM and off to Arizona.

The first portion of our RV living has been focused on settling into the new life changes, waiting for all things to align and release us into total freedom, grounding the new, assimilating the changes, doing upgrades and work on the RV, and family events that were scheduled last year.

So although we have been living in the RV since October 13th, traveled up the coast of California, and ventured in the Reno/Tahoe area, we officially headed out, once and for all, of our starting point in Orange County on my birthday this past Friday, 2/26.

First taking us to Palm Desert for the weekend and then on the Colorado River in Blythe since then.

I’ve been sharing the journey on my blog here, providing insight to this way of life and sharing all of the experiences, insights, and changes that take place for me along the way, as I know the power of mirroring reflection and how we are all collectively connected.

This has also been a way for me to let friends who may want to connect while I’m in your area, know when I’m traveling through.

And for those of you who have been, and may be, interested in setting up a Private Immersive Retreat while I’m nearby or in an area that calls to you, I’m also providing these updates as quickly as I know them so that that can be arranged. I do need to know these somewhat in advance to ensure I have availability and can get the needed things in order to accommodate you most supportively.

My schedule fills up pretty quickly with personal projects, my own explorations and personal needs, and visitations with people, so I can only do my best to synchronize dates, but which is why if you have this desire to experience a private retreat with me, please let me know ahead. I trust always these will align if and when important.

Here is more detailed info on that: Private Immersive Retreats

We now have a greater vision of our path, although this will fluctuate a little due to following inner guidance, weather, and unforeseens.

Since my March newsletter I put out a couple of days ago we’ve shifted a couple of days around and added to it a bit. Here is our current schedule for the next month:

Leaving Blythe, CA tomorrow 3/3 and heading to AZ

Prescott Granite Dells, AZ (about 4 miles from Prescott) – 3/3 – 3/6 

Sedona, AZ – 3/6 – 3/20 

Grand Canyon, AZ – 3/20 – 3/23 

Marble Canyon, AZ – 3/23 – 3/24

Zion National Park, UT 3/24 – 3/27

Bryce National Park, UT 3/27 – 3/30

Capitol Reef National Park, UT – 3/30 – ? to be scheduled

Canyon Lands National Park, UT – to be scheduled


A Couple of Quick Reminders:

I am only available on a very limited basis for Intuitive Guidance/Spiritual Coaching Sessions and Private Immersive Retreats – all subject to changing if the energy guides me as such.

All other services are on hiatus while I focus on my creative projects and self nurturing. If you desire training in Reiki or more, this is only available as a Private Retreat at this time.

Free video and blog inspirations continue to channel through and there will be more developments with the videos to come, as I delve deeper into my own origins, continue with new creative projects, and future inspired offerings.

Implementing Changes That Honor You & Myself More Fully

With great time spent in reflection, I have come to the decision of putting several services on hold, as right now I am feeling to focus my energy elsewhere that both allows my full creative expression wanting through right now and that challenges me.

I’m not one to stay complacent and want to always expand my horizons.

I also am committed to following the flow of energy moving through me and the things I will be focused on are necessities to my heart and soul thriving right now…and in return, this makes me able to give that much more.

This means I am going to be full time immersed in my creative projects and only very minimally part time focused and available on a couple of services at this time.

So, for those of you who don’t receive my newsletter, I just want to let you know briefly about the things that have shifted, although I don’t know when they will be available again.

I am not accepting any more new clients for sacred tattoo designs at this time.

I am also not available to teach any of the workshops I was offering, unless it’s part of a Private Immersive Retreat experience or you are a past student wanting to complete your Reiki training.

I am taking a break from offering distant Reiki sessions, which means no in-person or distant work available. Again this will only be available if you join on a Private Retreat and if you are a coaching client.

I am now focusing, funneling, and fine-tuning my energy and time elsewhere, as well as to the people I do work with in terms of Intuitive Energy Guidance Coaching and any Private Immersive Retreat clients.

I’m feeling to focus only very intimately and in depth with those called to work with me, who seek me out at this time, and who are truly courageously committed to their path and making changes. I am there to assist those leaps, which involve a much more immersive experience.

This is where my role is taking me and there are others who can assist with different roles and support.

And so I am available to the path of personal responsibility you’d like to partner on where we equally show up.

I do have to limit the amount of clients with these however, in order to be able to provide quality support to each individual, along with also honoring and providing quality time to the things in my life.

That said, I am able to support a maximum of only 2 new 5-Week Intensive clients per month, 3 Individual Clarity & Guidance sessions a week, one 3-day retreat a month at most, and three 5-day retreats a year at most.

Again, this is the max I can support, although am at peace and happy with this or less, as I have gratefully manifested what I need to fully be engaged in my creative projects alone, if that ends up being the case.

A doorway of opportunity has been provided for me and I’d be a fool not to say yes right now.

Thank you so so much for your understanding and thank you to all of my amazing clients for such a beautiful journey we’ve shared.

If you have any questions please message me, as I’ll be happy to help with those.

Give Away Fun to Honor You & Your Courage

I have two give-aways going on right now.

This first one is the “Tell Your Story” Give-Away and it ends March 3rd:

tell your story

I love hearing about the changes in people’s lives that have become so near and dear to me through the work we’ve shared together.

If you’ve joined on one of my retreats over the years, taken some of my workshops, worked with me in intuitive coaching sessions, have received Reiki support, experienced shifts and changes because of a sacred tattoo design we co-created and you now wear, or went through energetic changes because of a crystal I supported into your care or a painting that has helped you through your processes….I’d love to hear your stories.

You can either write to me here: Contact Tania Marie sharing how your life has changed because of the experience or thing, where you were, where you are now, and the steps in between that were part of the process.

Or, you can send me a video sharing the same. This needs to be sent in to me by 3/3/2016 – that’s Thursday, March 3rd.

The recipient will be announced on Friday, March 4th.

Everyone who shares a story or video will receive a one card Tarot reading on any one focus in your life or for generalized support on what is most key right now for you. This will be provided to you via email with a photo of the card and my take on the energy for you.

Everyone who shares a story will be entered into a drawing where one person will receive one free – one hour Individual Clarity & Guidance Session (worth $188) over the phone, plus a 33% off voucher toward a 5-Week Intensive of Intuitive Energy Guidance Sessions.

I will also feature your story, in an upcoming blog, granted you’re okay with that, supporting you for the courage you’ve embraced and highlighting your gifts for others that you may be sharing in terms of your path and work.


And here’s a reminder on the second give-away.

The Big 2016 Give Away:


Inspired by all of my wonderful clients, as a way to reward and honor your commitments and courageous shifts, as well as provide extra support to help you into those manifestations and life alignments, I’m gifting a free 3-Day Private Immersive Retreat worth $1999 to one of you.

This is available to all of my clients who already HAVE or WILL be working with me on a Five Week Intensive of Intuitive Energy Guidance Sessions.

The only thing I ask from those of you who are automatically entered by choosing to commit to your personal empowerment, is that you either send me a quick 3 – 5 minute video (which I would prefer but understand not everyone has tech abilities) of why this would mean the world to you and how you think it would support your path, or you can share your thoughts in a message to me here: Contact Tania Marie

These need to be in by May 31st.

I will then review and intuitively choose from all of the messages received, announcing the recipient on June 1st, 2016.

(Travel to me not included, nor accommodations if you choose not to camp out – details on all that IS included, which is a lot, you can find at this link: Private Immersive Retreats)

Immersing Fully Into the Experience ~ Beyond the Retreat

It’s really been a potent and enriching week here, which is why I’ve been away from blogging and sharing for a while, as I immersed myself fully into the experiences and the energies abound.


It all kicked off with a truly wonderful retreat experience shared between myself and a beautiful soul, and has continued with full days of snow, skiing, and family – with a big gathering (12 of us) on yesterday’s New Moon and Chinese New Year of the Fire Monkey.

With today being my day off to integrate it all before a couple more days of outdoor fun and family, I thought I’d end off the day in reflection with this share about our beautiful retreat, as writing things out always deepens the experience.

20160206_163909_resized.jpgLast week kicked off the first Private Immersive Retreat of the year, as I welcomed the beautiful Kathleen on Wednesday evening to our forest home in Pine Grove at Gold Country Campground.

Some of the parks have rooms, cottages, and cabins for rent, and with winter chills and very cold nights, this makes it a great option for those who aren’t winter campers. So our Pine Grove home here worked perfectly for this since that was available.

20160206_162044_resizedThe way the private retreats work is that each person lets me know the kind of environment they’d like to have their experience in – be that ocean, mountain, desert, etc. – and then we set up days during a time when we know we’ll be in the desired location.

20160206_163605_resizedKathleen was yearning for forest and mountain energy (I certainly can’t blame her 😉 )and that’s what we had a perfect dose of to here to support her desires.

The rest is all customized to each person’s needs, intents, and requests, along with what I intuit to be most important to help with their personal journeys.

I then put together ideas along with a meal plan and the organic flow begins to create itself around the energy of the intention held for the time shared.

It’s all so much fun and so rich in deep layers, it really is too hard to explain the magnitude of what we share, let alone what takes place energetically beyond what is seen.

And it truly is my joy to create these experiences, as they flow so naturally with who I am and the gifts I have to share with others.

20160206_163313_resizedBefore I share a bit about this retreat, I want to provide some insight on what all goes into something like this, as I have many students, clients, and friends interested in creating this kind of work for their path as well.

I always like to support people with understanding what is involved with things and the kinds of experiences that are possible, in order to provide a clearer picture to help with choices on both ends of the giving and receiving.

I’ve supported and facilitated a lot of group retreats, weekends, workshops, and experiences, but I do have to say that there’s something extra special about the one-on-one and being able to really delve into a deep partnership, being able to spend that extra time helping someone with their needs on an intimate level, being able to let my creative, nurturing side out even more, and being able to flow more organically, as we know what we want to achieve but how that looks can take on many forms that match the energy in the moment.

It is a very involved process that involves both parties fully showing up, and is demanding of your all in every way.

So it’s not something to do unless you really love it and it is simply who you are.20160206_162534_resized

That goes for both group and private experiences….and truly that goes without saying, is also important in terms of anything you decide to do in life.

Take time to explore it fully, ask questions to others who are doing it or have done it, and feel into it with the heart of who you are.

I know a lot of my students or retreat clients always get excited about wanting to host their own retreats at some point, which I fully support, but I also fully want them to understand what it asks of you and what you must be willing to invest in all ways, regardless of the outcome.

There is a lot involved to take into account, and these private retreats also involve your all, as basically you’re running the full show and it’s not glamorous, as some people would like to believe.

It’s real. Real life. Real giving and receiving. Real you. All the way.

For example, I did all the food prep (3 meals a day plus desserts), all the planning, all the facilitating, all the clean up, all the attention to details, on top of caring for my four babies (animal companions), taking care of the household, laundry that must be done daily, taking care of me, etc.

20160206_165954_resizedIt’s a lot and I LOVE it, but it’s not for everyone unless you know this is who you are and you would do it regardless of whether or not there was any compensation at the end of the day.

For me, it’s an extension of who I am and I believe if others can’t see and feel that in you, then there’s something to look at in terms of whether or not this kind of path is for you.

It also takes knowing how to balance, nurture, and care for your needs as well, as you can’t do these kinds of things without knowing how to first and foremost be a healthy and thriving person, otherwise you’ll find yourself crashing or burned out really quickly.

I find these experiences, like the retreats, to be mutually fulfilling and in many ways are like a retreat for myself. But that has come with a big learning curve on self-care and making sure I am able to invest what is needed to do something of quality.

I receive a lot from the experience and learn a lot, as well as get a chance to express all the facets of me that are most important, vital, and that are my essence.

But there is an investment of time, energy, finances, and your heart and soul. You need to be present in all ways…and that means truly showing up yourself, as the best you you can be.

That said, I’ll share some of the highlights and things I love.

One of those things is the ability to express my creativity, to be naturally me, and to flow organically.

20160203_142618_resized.jpgOne of those creative outlet enjoyments for me is to express it and my personal magick flair in the kitchen, which I love having opportunity to do for others.

And this experience provided that, along with so many other wonderful channels of my personal essence, which then equate to the strengths I have to support others with.

20160203_095544So the retreat kicked off with a welcome dinner last Wednesday night, which included a gift goody bag intuited for her needs and fun, then continued for three full immersive days – Thursday through Saturday – departing on Sunday morning.

The meal plan I created and that we shared was a blend of so many wonderful tastes and provided opportunity for me to share about vegan cooking, impart ideas and shopping hints, and show what I was doing, which was perfect since she has been transitioning to a vegan diet and was really interested in learning – one of the intents for the days we spent together.

Here’s what our mouths and tummies got to explore and enjoy during this retreat, to give you an example:


Dinner – Vegan lasagna (broccoli, olives, vegan Italian sausage, vegan cheese) with side baby kale salad with cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, avocado and fresh herb infusion dressing

Dessert – Raw vegan coconut cacao balls20160203_160124_resized


Breakfast – Raw vanilla cinnamon chia seed pudding topped with blackberries with a raspberry, goji berry, cacao, banana, orange, ginger, kale, flax seed, and powdered chard/kale greens smoothie

Lunch – Vegan BBQ oven “fried” tempeh with vegan ranch dressing and extra BBQ sauce side, carrot and celery sticks and homemade sundried tomato basil hummus and cilantro jalapeno hummus

Dinner- Vegan black bean, broccoli, portabello quesadillas topped with fresh cilantro

Dessert – Raw vegan chocolate mousse tart with almond, date, coconut crust and layer of strawberries in between, topped with strawberry flowers and coconut20160204_202136_resized


Breakfast – Homemade vegan pancakes topped with fruit and maple syrup with side of tempeh bacon

Lunch – Vegan “cobb” salad with mock “fried” chicken tempeh marinated in tamari and breaded, black beans, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, hemp seeds, and vegan ranch dressing

Dinner – Vegan red lentils and Moong Dal in a cashew almond sauce with fresh bread

Dessert – Vegan s’mores roasted fireside at our campsite (vegan marshmallows, dark chocolate, and vegan graham cookies20160205_204002_resized


Breakfast – Tofu scramble with diced vegan sausage patties, cherry tomatoes, fresh basil, vegan cheddar shreds, nutritional yeast with side of toast and blackberry jam

Lunch – Vegan potato leek soup

Dinner – Vegan ginger garlic chickpea fritters over red quinoa with Thai mint peanut sauce

Dessert – Raw vegan key lime pie with one layer key lime, one layer coconut key lime, on coconut almond date crust and topped with a mango lotus mandala centered with blackberry20160203_142635_resized


Breakfast – Vegan banana, raisin, cinnamon, vanilla oat breakfast squares


Talk about delicious and such a treat for me to make and eat! I love exploring both things I love making and new adventures in cuisine to stretch my creative palette. Kathleen got to see the Faery at work in the kitchen sprinkling magick here and there. hehe!

I think she mentioned once that I looked like I dance around the kitchen, which was a fun reflection since I believe life can be a work of art and a flow of energy that moves you and moves through you.

And our days were filled with a variety of experiences and sharing that helped to focus on the fundamentals of her desires and what I felt would most effectively help with that.

So our days were as varied as our meals and each day couldn’t have flowed, aligned, and concluded more perfectly.

We were always giggling because every time we did Tarot readings, it would be the exact reflection and even words I/we had just got finished saying right before or the day/evening before. Love that! As it truly provides that reiteration the ego does feel more at ease with receiving.

And our days were packed full of punch AND fun!

Days involved:

  • Tarot – beginning with more involved readings and then little touch in cards and smaller ones every day (usually twice a day at onset and end)
  • Nature walks being very present and aware of all that was around us and receiving those messages and signs while communing with the Faeries and spirit presences all around us20160206_165322_resized
  • Learning how to trust our intuition and the voices within
  • Seeing the magick all around
  • Sacred shamanic ceremony our first day in our sacred tree circle we found and loved, which set the tone for the retreat and called in the support we needed
  • Different meditations – including one to connect with with Earth and Cosmos through the heart, meeting guides and receiving symbols for her path, crystal and Faery meditations, and Cosmic, multi-dimensional expansion exercises
  • A Reiki Healing Attunement in nature, focusing on gifts and strengths to hone in on her path
  • Sound healing in nature where we created beautiful melodies together
  • A full in-person Reiki session
  • Soul expressive painting outdoors with Faery music – creating our personal windows or mandalas from the expressive child within to represent/symbolize and help us move into the next leg of our journeys and connect with our essence for what we want to create20160206_131905_resized
  • A beautiful nature hike and sharing at the lake nearby, which concluded with a spectacular bursting sunrise of vibrant colors and seeing a group of 10 young deer, along with 2 more after, which was the perfect energy symbolism and gift for all the work we did and invested our hearts and souls in20160206_174320_resized20160206_173934_resized20160206_175158_resized
  • And a LOT of potent conversation to help move the energy and process all of the focuses she wanted to work on with in-person support

Just beautiful…and I can’t really express what it was like because it truly is an experience.

But what I can say is it wouldn’t have been possible without such an astoundingly courageous soul as Kathleen is and without such an open and loving heart as she has.

It takes an equal partnership of showing up and it takes a willingness to embrace the journey.

And that was all met and then some.

What I can say is that I received as much from our experience together, as she shared having received, but in my own relative way.

And what I can also say is that the growth, integrative depth, and personal power that was experienced, and will continue to unfold, was truly awe-inspiring. So many cool things keep unfolding since our time together, for each of us.

There’s something very powerful that takes place on a journey like this that is not just for the individual who physically shows up for the experience, but also for the collective evolutionary journey in direct ripple effect of the energetic shifts that take place.

What is integrated into your life from a sacred and intentional retreat experience is priceless.

Not everyone will feel called to make the physical travels, and still can do the remote work and benefit, nonetheless, however some can greatly benefit from the in-person experience.

I know I have, myself, when I’ve gone on retreats and sacred journeys in my own life and it’s what I receive as feedback from others.

Since we are all connected, then when one soul taps into, opens and embodies an experience and potential, that experience and potential becomes available to us all.

So with that said, I want to thank Kathleen for her commitment not only to herself, but to embracing her responsibility to the greater and highest good of all concerned.

I loved seeing her magickal self return, as the soul we both know her truly to be.

I am honored.

I am grateful.

I am humbled.

I am filled with love and respect.

We were both sad for our time together to end and yet know that the ending is truly just a beginning.

There is so much more to come and we now have another soul sister to walk that path with.


It really touched my heart to hear that she didn’t want to leave.

I feel that means divine alignment was created and that another thread of the collective tapestry is shining her colors more vibrantly.

What greater gift than to witness the cosmic web of bright stars light up once again.

The immersive experience of a retreat goes far beyond the retreat itself….it is about remembering and being naturally you and learning how to integrate that into your daily life always so that you can live as a shining example for others.

End of Year Reminders

With just 12 more days remaining and my schedule now completely full until we head off on our adventure and say goodbye to the area here for now (until we pass through again along the way) I don’t have the ability to offer any more private or group workshops, whether weekend or weekday.

This coming Sunday, January 3rd is the last Reiki 3 Master Teacher workshop I’ll be teaching, which is now also currently full.

If you really feel you’re meant to be in this workshop, whether to join for free review as a return student, or to complete your training, I am open to exploring another possible option to create space for more on that day.

Please message me as soon as possible though, as it’s just 5 days away.

Otherwise, I will be offering private retreats that can encompass your training and more where ever I am, I can refer you to some of my local students who are teaching and will be teaching in the new year, or we can facilitate distant training via calls, skype, video, and email.

I’m also booked through late January with sacred tattoo designs, however if you’re still interested in getting a design in the New Year, I’m still honoring my current rate until the end of this month if you book with me in the next two days.

Beginning January 1st, I’ll have a new rate, which will be shared in my upcoming newsletter.

You can still book Intuitive Energy Guidance Sessions, which are spiritually guided coaching calls with me, however. And, there will be an announcement, as promised, about a big giveaway to my Five-Week Intensive clients for the new year. Stay tuned for that also in the next newsletter.

For now, through January 10th I’m going to be pretty focused with end of year closure of things, and completing projects, as well as energetically closing doors to open new ones.

I’ll be sharing some of the newest sacred tattoo designs soon and a book cover I’ll be working on shortly for one of my author friends.

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and are getting ready to kick off a new year!

December Reminders

I’ll make this brief, as I’m focused on completing projects and winding things down for 2015, along with my time left here in Southern California.

Here are the last workshops available for those of you in the area, along with other important shifts to keep in mind:

  • I’ll be teaching the last Crystal Magick Workshop here on Sunday, December 27th. This will be held outdoors on the beach, weather permitting. Only 2 spots left.


  • I’ll be teaching the last Reiki 3 Master Teacher Workshop here on Sunday, January 3rd here in Newport Beach. Only 1 spot left.


  • Beginning January 1st, 2016 my sacred tattoo design rate will be increasing, as a reflection of the work/energy involved with these continuing to increase and my time/energy available continues to lessen. I am still offering this service, for now, as there’s been a huge influx of clients over the last couple of years really needing the support with this and so as long as Spirit guides my place being here to help with this, I will. However, there may soon come a point that I might only work with past clients and referrals. That said, I know a lot of you have expressed wanting to co-create a design with me and these are things to keep in mind if you actually do feel this is your calling that would assist in empowering your path.


  • While we’re traveling for the indefinite period of time we will be in the RV, you’ll be able to receive any training or support desired by requesting and booking a Private Immersion Retreat with me in the area I am in. Please visit this link to understand the scope of this and all the benefits and options available to you: Private Immersion Retreats


  • If none of the above works for you, but you are looking for that one-on-one support in one or various areas of your life needing clarity, healing, empowerment, and support then you can at any time book sessions with me over the phone to receive exactly what you’re looking for. This will be the best way to work with me and available to anyone, anywhere, as it can be done via phone or Skype. Again, please visit this link to understand the full scope of what I can offer to you, who this is good for, the benefits, and options available to you: Intuitive Energy Guidance/Coaching If anything is unclear or you’d like to discuss how I can assist you and aren’t sure where to start or what to focus on, but are resonating with and drawn to work with me, please contact me so we can shine some light on this for you and create a direction/plan of action that will best support immediate needs and overall benefit: Contact Tania – Remember that if you book one of the packages with me this month, you’ll receive a free 1/2 hour session as a gift for your commitment.


I think I covered things, but if you have any questions please message me so I may assist you.

An Invitation: Private Immersive Retreats with Tania Marie

This is a fun video I was inspired to put together yesterday to touch in a bit about one of the things my new RV lifestyle provides the opportunity to offer to anyone that has been called to work with me and join a retreat experience.

Only this invitation is all about YOU!

You can find out the details of what this is all about, involves, and the endless possibilities to experience (which I don’t get into in the video) at the link below, which weaves it all together a bit more.

The link also shares about how you can join me on your own Private Immersive Retreat, custom co-created to meet your needs and desires:

Private Immersive Retreats with Tania Marie

As always, you can contact me with questions.

You’ll start to get a theme with my video shares that I’m all about simplicity and doing things naturally.

What you see is what you get with me. I’m no different in any setting you find me in.

So there’s no fancy filming (I’m not techy at all), no editing (other than linking separate videos together because my camera cuts me off! – I had to google how to do that lol!), and you’re just getting me raw and in the flow of the energy of the moment.

I never know exactly what I’m going to say, or how it will come through, but that’s how I like it.

Keeping it real. Letting the human and magickal merge in the moment.

So here I am again, just being me, sharing about my invitation to you to join me in both an immersion with Nature and the Nature of You.
