Wild Hearts Retreat
Creating a Safe Space for Like Minded Women to Help You
Reconnect With Yourself, Find Your Voice and Ignite Your Passion…
Join Us April 30 – May 3, 2020
Open Your Heart and Become Your Own Courageous Warrior!
Who Is This Retreat For?
Women who are looking to reconnect to themselves, find their voice, and ignite their passion. Women who want to experience freedom of expression without judgment. Women who want to connect with nature, their bodies, their heart and others that are on a similar journey. Women who are tired of saying, “I’ll take care of myself when _______”. Women who want to learn to say “NO” or “YES” without guilt! Women who want to let go of what is in the way of their inner truth and release old stories and old patterns.
Rejuvenate, Connect, Transform
This retreat was created for women to come together in a beautiful setting surrounded by nature to experience freedom, creative expression, a deeper connection to themselves and return home with the courage to take the actions necessary to transform an area of their lives they have been yearning to change.
When a group of women come together that have similar needs and desires, magic happens! Being in celebration and oneness with other women let’s you open up your heart and tap into your courage.
We truly believe that the closer you are to nature, the more likely you are to have lasting breakthroughs that help you realize your vision and empower yourself to make the choices aligned with your truth.

She believes in giving her clients tools to become self-sufficient on their journey of transformation.

As a SoulCollage(r) Certified Facilitator, Monica will guide you in creating personal counsel cards through a playful process of accessing your intuition and imagination.
SoulCollage® is a creative practice that begins with intuitively inviting images you’ve chosen from books and magazines that resonate with your inner wisdom and then collaging them together on a card. The outcome will organically lead to a message from your SoulWhisper. You’ll learn how to speak from the image and reveal the message meant for you.
This practice of SoulCollage® requires only your curious mind, imagination; we’ll provide all the materials!
