During the fast pace of our increasingly busy lives, discovering ways to relax and pay attention to our personal health and well-being has become increasingly important and even more difficult to achieve. We must make it a priority and schedule that time in. While many of you are familiar with and attend some of my monthly events, there are a few additional customizable services that I will be adding to Living Life the Happy Way in 2024. Whether you are looking for a transformative experience or just want to recharge, I am certain you can find what you are looking for, and, if what you are looking for doesn’t exist yet, I am happy to create a custom event or retreat that will meet your needs. Let Living Life the Happy Way fashion for you, a group of friends, or a collection of your favorite coworkers a customized event or retreat that will help you disconnect from your daily routine, unwind your mind, and revitalize your body.
You may be wondering what a wellness retreat or event will do for you and your friends. A wellness retreat provides a vehicle for you to focus on your physical, mental, and spiritual wellbeing via a blend of activities, healing therapies, and educational workshop themes. The purpose of the retreats will be to emphasize a healing theme while providing a relaxing and nurturing environment where you can disengage from everyday stresses. A Galveston destination retreat will allow you to place your attention on your personal growth and self-care. Living Life the Happy Way retreats come in a variety of packages, which include accommodations, meals, and a wide range of wellness services. You can also customize your guests’ experiences by choosing individual services and treatments. The ultimate goal of our wellness retreats is for you to leave the experience rested, restored, and better equipped to handle the stresses of everyday life.
A few retreat ideas that may interest you and your group are the following:
Creating a girlfriend experience filled with spiritual growth. Book a weekend on the island, add a few a la carte items that suit your groups’ needs, and enjoy sightseeing and dining at local restaurants.
Solidify your bonds of friendship with a Soul Sister ceremony. A soul sister can be an actual sister or it can be a “kindred spirit” with whom you share an unbreakable bond. Your relationship is filled with a deep understanding, trust, and care that transcends time or distance.
Customize a healing journey through the chakras workshop that is tailored to your groups’ healing needs.
Build a retreat inspired by the Reset and Renew curriculum where you release old narratives and stories that are holding you back from becoming the woman you are meant to be.
Here are a few of the à la carte items that can be added to a retreat.
Labyrinth Walks are a beautiful way to let go of what is holding you back, connect to the Divine, and set intentions for growth or whatever your group is focusing on. Unlike a maze that has confusing pathways with many choices and dead ends, a labyrinth walk has a single route with twists and turns, but it doesn’t contain any branches. The significance of this is found in the spiritual aspect of our lives because it represents the complex and sometimes long path it takes for us to reach the Divine. When walking the labyrinth, you are invited to review what you desire to release as you enter the labyrinth and release anything that has been a burden or hasn’t been working for you. When you reach the center, lay those lessons down and express gratitude to the Divine for aiding you through what you have accomplished this far. Then when you walk back out of the labyrinth, you set your intentions for what you would like to manifest into your life. As you watch each of the other participants walk in and out of the labyrinth, you walk with them as they review their past, hold space while they release and give thanks, and then walk with them as they set their intentions. Labyrinths are a wonderful add on to an event.
A Moon Ritual is another activity that lends itself to a retreat or group get away. It doesn’t matter what phase the moon is in. Your group can have a customizable theme where you are invited to use the moon’s energy to release and cleanse whatever is holding you back. Each person is honored within the sacred circle and is given a space for sharing and support as your group soaks in the moonlight to amplify your desires and bring in a positive energy flow. Some items that could be added to your customized moon ritual are making moon water, charging crystals, an oracle card reading, a manifestation ritual, group meditation, journaling, ritual inviting in self-love, etc. Moon rituals are emotional and intense, and when we work with them and learn how to use their rhythm, our lives become more in sync and powerful.
Focused Meditations, whether they are guided or are asking you to perform a personal body scan, are a great way for you or your group to focus inward and encourage soulful healing. Meditation is a spiritual practice that creates inner calm and the ability to go within and connect with yourself in a more intense and focused way. In addition, practicing meditation can be beneficial to the mind, body, and spirit. When you sit with your friends or colleagues in meditation, it can influence your collective. You can feel the connection between others when you are accessing the same stillness and source of tranquility because in group mediations our brainwaves synchronize. Group meditation helps develop lasting habits, it provides an environment that is accepting, and allows the members of the group to thrive within the community through supporting each person’s inward journey. Living Life the Happy Way is happy to customize a group meditation event to help your friend group or small community connect in a spiritual way and grow.
Sound Bath Meditation allows time to be suspended for you enter a world of vibration, sensation, experience, and healing. The sound immersion introduces you to an experience of deep relaxation and a profound sense of stillness and serenity. Come bring your group and allow the healing frequencies and vibrations to drift over you and melt away any stress, anxiety, and worries. You will leave feeling relaxed, uplifted, and renewed.
Individual or Group Reiki Energy Healing Sessions can be customized or theme-based and individualized to your unique needs. If treating each person individually, you could pinpoint areas of chronic pain, anxiety, and emotional distress or you can just let the Reiki energy promote relaxation, restoration, and balance. Another option would be to perform Reiki energy healing based on your group’s theme for the retreat. Either way the shift that occurs in your life-force energy will only positively affect your body, mind, and spirit.
Raindrop Therapy offers a hands-on energy healing technique that incorporates calming, energizing, and soothing essential oils with Tibetan Vitaflex and Lakota Indian effleurage techniques. This technique aims to balance and realign your body’s energy centers, realign the spine without external manipulation, reduce stress and anxiety, decrease inflammation, increase circulation, promote relaxation, alleviate body aches, and release stored toxins and negative emotions.
When a community of women get together to hold space and offer support for each other, it is going to be a powerful, life-changing experience. Inviting Living Life the Happy Way to create customized events and retreats can only enhance the connections you have to the people who have become an integral part of your life. It is sure to be an experience that will bring spiritual direction, joy, comfort, creative expression, and understanding to your unique group.
