Divine Feminine Empowerment WITH DEANNA DEACON

Adventure | Community | Intimacy Empowerment | Freedom | Nature

ng e s s i y d bo o dd t r eat m E G Re


Nov. 30 - Dec. 7, 2019

When was the last time you felt unconditionally ACCEPTED, LOVED and VALUED for showing up exactly as you are in any given moment? * Letting the tears flow as they come. * Sharing your fears, no matter how irrational they may sound. * Celebrating immense joy when you crack your heart wide open. * Feeling held in safety, love & compassion.

A sacred soul journey into Divine Feminine Empowerment For details, visit

This is exactly why the Embodying Goddess Retreat was created; to honour, to witness and to empower YOU to show up as your best Self; physically nourished, spiritually awakened, mentally clear and emotionally honoured.

This retreat is for you if you desire to; • practice yoga listening to wild monkeys in the trees above • dance & sing as you splash in the ocean waves • face your fears while paddling down an exotic jungle river • heal past wounds through sacred workshops & ceremonies • embody your intimate soul essence • be energetically held in a soulful container of love & acceptance

The women who attended my 2018 Embodying Goddess Retreat in Costa Rica shared that these were some of their favourite memories of our week together in the tropical jungle.

There is room for 8 incredible women to join this sacred soul journey from November 30 - December 7th, 2019 on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica.

“For once, it was okay to be me, fully and completely ME! I felt totally accepted by you and the other women from the first second at the airport. It helped me to open up to everyone, and to myself. It helped me to talk about my own story, to share my feelings and to grow.” - Dominique Paradis, Quebec City, 2018 retreat attendee



Known as a spiritual personal trainer with a modern Goddess twist, Deanna teaches strong, successful women to embrace their feminine energy to experience deep joy & fulfilment while maintaining high levels of sustainable growth & prosperity.

S1:E4 By Mari Abraham

I am Imvukuzane... What is it about the Painted Horse under the New Moon, in a bowl full of stars, that pulls the Spirit out of body across the ice road like frosted breath ringing all light with Rainbow Aura? A drumbeat deep in the belly signals an opening in the pelvis as structural alignment takes place. Horse stance. Lifting ribs, lengthening spine, shoulders spread, wings follow. The prayer unfolds and flies across the sky through the land deep under the water high above the clouds we unwind into it All with blissful embodied awareness. What is it about the Painted Horse?

Mari Abraham is a traditional Zulu shamanic practitioner. Her role is to support the Earth's rising vibration and assist the transformation of humanity in to a global culture of peace and unconditional love. 250-499-0733

THRIVE Y O U R D AY ! by Kristy Janota

We tend to let our day lead, don’t we? We get through the day and wonder where the time went, amazed that we survived another one! But what if we can be a more active guide to our day?

Here’s an exercise to try. Set a timer, and every hour or two do the following: 1. Movement - Get up and move. Walk, jog, or twist your torso side to side. 2. The Past is Gone - Tell yourself that only now matters and where you go from here. The past is gone and no longer exists. 3. Focus Inward - Close your eyes, take a couple deep breaths and focus on the beating of your heart. It’s an incredible organ that keeps you alive all day, every day. 4. Visualize – Keeping eyes closed…see yourself successfully achieving your goals. Imagine what it feels like. Any sized goal will do! 5. Magnet - See yourself as a magnet. Mentally point yourself in the direction you want to go.

6. Wisdom - Consult your inner wisdom on what you could do this next hour to head in the direction you want to go. Your inner wisdom is there: listen for that positive, calm “voice” and those subtle ideas and/or images in your mind. 7. Write/Reflect - Note down what positive steps are needed to take you to where you want to go. And at the end of the day, record all your successes, no matter how big or small. This exercise needs only a minute or two. Take a bathroom/coffee break - you can fit it in. If you did this every hour, imagine how many powerful steps in a positive direction you would take today!

ANXIETY AS A DOORWAY TO TRANSFORMATION by Maggie Reigh “Anxiety is transformational energy looking to ground itself.” - Dr. Sue Mortar Wow!! That statement changed the way I thought about anxiety! Rather than making it wrong and something to get rid of, I began to see it as an opportunity to transform my life - and it has! It’s also transformed the lives of many people with whom I work. In our Consciousness Raising Communication Circles (where public speaking skills and effective heart-to-heart communication skills are enhanced), anxiety often reveals itself strongly. International Speaking Circles founder Lee Glickstein says, “Public speaking doesn’t create anxiety, it uncovers the anxiety that is already there.” Anxiety passes readily when given permission to actually feel it in the body - stay with it, rather than push it down. Authenticity, strength, and confidence begin to flourish. One young woman, terrified of public speaking, stood and felt the anxiety release as she faced our group. Afterwards she said, “I was on cloud nine as I drove home. I’ve never been able to share awkward emotions in front of others. To feel the group support as I felt the release in my body has been incredibly freeing!” What you can feel you can heal; what you resist feeling will persist. Try it for yourself: next time you feel anxiety breathe deeply, feel it in your body and say, “I give this energy permission to soften and release.” Instead of asking,” Why is this happening?” ask, “Where is it in my body?” Stay with the sensations… notice the texture, the shape, the density of the energy. Keep breathing deeply and notice how the energy moves. I have yet to work with anyone who has not noticed a release of this energy. Rather than being a problem to hide or change, the anxiety becomes the catalyst for transformational change. Maggie Reigh, B.Ed; B.T; CHt. is both a dynamic and entertaining speaker as well as a highly skilled hypnotherapist. Individual therapeutic sessions can be experienced in the comfort of your own home (around the globe) or in Maggie’s home office in the beautiful Okanagan, BC Canada. 778-214-4684



When looking to create the relationship we are longing for it’s essential that we, first, turn our gaze to ourselves. Only after we understand and nourish ourselves by taking care of our needs can we then be ready to dive deeply into the inner workings of our relationship with our beloved. First, we must steady our own self, because if we aren’t happy in ourselves, if we aren’t paying attention to our needs, development and growth, it’s unlikely that we’ll be able to experience happiness in our relationship. Our relationship can only be as happy as we are. It begins with us. To begin to clean up your side of the street, we must change our mindset and realize that taking care of ourselves isn’t selfish; it’s necessary. We cannot take care of others if we are not filling our tank up first. When we are not taking care of ourselves we seek fulfillment of our needs from external sources—often our relationship with our beloved. This puts extreme pressure on the relationship and leads to frustration when our impossible expectations are not met. When we constantly put ourselves aside, we think we are being selfless, but in the end, we feel resentful, bitter and depleted. Often, we will find ourselves blaming these feelings on our relationship and searching for the solution in bettering and changing our relationship. This is not the answer. The real transformation begins with us.

We begin to take care of ourselves by asking these important questions: 1) Am I taking care of myself? 2) What do I need? 3) Am I meeting my own needs? 4) When can I make time to take care of myself and meet my needs? When you find yourself yearning for change in your intimate relationship turn your attention to yourself. We must always begin there. We can only be as happy in our relationship as we are with ourselves.

Break the Cycle

of Negative Talk: I T’ S N O T S E RV I N G Y O U . by Tammie Oram, MTC, RCT, NT

There are negative thoughts we have about ourselves that we repeat over and over, and trying to break the cycle of thinking unkind things about ourselves takes consistency - it takes 5 positive thoughts to undo 1 negative thought that’s right - ratio 5:1 (J. Gottman). Whether in relationship with the inner or outer world, how we see ourselves is how we present ourselves. Do not play small, do not put yourself down, do not disregard the beauty inside of you, do not shrink, be the glorious you and shine! Begin with baby steps, as incremental adjustment makes lasting change, and we feel good as we move towards permanent transformation. Every time you say one unkind thing about yourself, add two positive things to counteract it, ie: “Sorry I ate the last cupcake, I have no self-control; I cannot be trusted alone with my sweet tooth.” Delete that thought, cancel it out! Right now say aloud to yourself, “I cancel that thought. I have control over me. I can be trusted.” This is a good, simple method of retraining your brain and the way you view yourself. One negative phrase…two positives! Self-deprecation can add up in both your and others’ perception of you. Even when we are “just joking” or “making fun” - using sarcasm towards ourselves and others, we are reinforcing that negativity and making it acceptable. It is not acceptable; we need to be kinder to ourselves. Every time you find yourself thinking some negative “truth,” cancel it. Establish the positive truth instead. If you are concerned that saying only positive things about yourself is delusional, narcissistic or will colour your view of the world incorrectly, think about how our society is trained to see the worst side of everything - it is already distored. Don’t get stuck in an old pattern that’s no longer serving you. Be the one to change your thought pattern; be realistic as falsehood is not sustainable. Be real, truthful and allow the world to see the beautiful you. It starts with you…

ENDURING the dark night OF THE SOUL By Cecilia de Groot

…you are alone in a dark room…you have been here for what seems an eternity… …there are doors leading to what you believe is salvation, and in the beginning, you tried them fervently, to no avail… …you have been forced to endure this darkness. You hear voices just beyond, and experience has told you that they will not hear you calling out. You find yourself…without hope. Welcome to the dark night of the soul. This experience can happen because of physical circumstances, or emotional, bringing forth a profound spiritual awareness. It can be brought on by other human beings, or by illness, or any other grueling circumstance that you can only embrace and move through. It presents like depression, though it is far from it. This is an opportunity. An opportunity to dig down deep into yourself, to explore your core, to embrace your new found strengths. Who you were no longer exists. Who you are becoming is yet to be seen. Rest assured, you will emerge…possibly more compassionate, loving, and patient…but also aware, raw, filled with a truth that very few really acquire. It will humble you, this darkness. It will take you to places you didn’t know you could endure. And yet, there you are, enduring it. Maybe for days…months…years. Whatever it takes for this important transformation. As a human being, you need to be in control. It’s difficult to embrace being powerless. All you can do is go inward, seek your own inner light. Many times you’ll want to give up, to have the suffering over. But you can’t. You have to endure… …until one day, you emerge. With wings of the most amazingly vibrant personal power… …from the caterpillar to the butterfly… …embrace your darkness… Cecilia de Groot is an Intuitive Empowerment Guide, Professional Spiritual Touchstone, Speaker, Writer, Editor, and Lover of Humanity - Ready to Help You Reclaim Your Truth!

Let me write your love story...

INNER WISDOM by Marilyn Puff

It sounds simple, but we always hear, ``you have everything you need to meet whatever situation you find yourself, even when it feels overwhelming``. So how do we find that wisdom, the guidance and clarity? We often think it needs to come from something outside ourselves. The truth is, even if we find a counsellor we can work with, or pull an oracle card that speaks to us, that train of events starts within. We choose 1.) what feels right - our emotional / intuitive cues, 2.) what makes sense – decisions with the mind, or 3.) what catches our attention - our spiritual messages. 4.) Even our body is speaking to us all the time. The more we relate to and work with the sensations in our body, the more clearly our emotional, mental and spiritual messages are heard. Right now, notice your body, your breath. When we consciously place our awareness on our body, this acknowledgement starts the release of the tensions that are blocking the flow of energy, resources and emotions in our being. Pay attention to a young child when they are in any big emotion. Their deep intense breathing releases the emotion, their mind settles, their muscles relax and their ability to change focus or make decisions becomes easier.

Angela delivered a service that we would recommend to anyone who wants a beautiful marriage ceremony tailor-made to suit them and their partner. She took the time and energy to get to know us and as a result our ceremony was perfect. Angela ensured everything we wanted to say about our love story was said and that our vows were completely unique and based on both of our personalities. Her loving nature and calm mannerism made us both feel relaxed and made our real-life moment, magical. Words cannot express my gratitude to Angela for this once in a life time experience she helped create. - Erica Angela Foster M.msc



Any activity, creative endeavor or meditative routine that quiets or distracts the chatter mind, is a tool to access our subtle or “aha” insights. Journalling, writing with our nondominant hand, writing a letter to ourselves or anyone we are challenged by without sending it, are great ways to discover what we are really thinking and feeling. These tools also release emotional, mental and body tension so we can access more spiritually oriented thoughts. Trust yourself and the ways you naturally listen to your own Inner Wisdom. Marilyn is the visionary and founder of SACRED MOON EMERGENCE Retreats for Women. She also offers individuals, couples or families Life Breakthrough Sessions and transformational programs. She has been in the field of creative inner transformation and ceremony for almost 30 years. 250 320-1993 FB see ad.

Have you ever considered what level of consciousness you exist at on a daily basis? Dr. David Hawkins has developed a scale which maps the levels of human consciousness based on our behaviours and perception of life. The majority of the time, we generally operate at one particular core level of consciousness. Of course, there may be times when we function at different levels. These levels of consciousness can be divided into energy enhancing levels and energy draining levels of consciousness. The “positive levels” represent life-affirming behaviours from a place of alignment and integrity. These levels, from highest to lowest, are: Enlightenment, Peace, Joy, Love, Reason, Acceptance, Willingness, Neutrality and Courage. Moving from reason to love requires a quantum leap. Reason lives in the physical domain of ego and linear thinking, while love resides in the spiritual realm of formlessness and non-linearity. The leap to love facilitates perceiving life from the heart with unconditional love and compassion. As we continue down the scale of consciousness, we come to the negative energy draining levels. These levels represent destructive and harmful behaviours below the level of integrity. These levels are Pride, Anger, Desire, Fear, Grief, Apathy, Guilt and Shame being the lowest level. The awareness of your current level of consciousness will allow your perception to climb the scale of consciousness to view reality from a different vantage point. The ability to perceive any situation from a higher level of consciousness will begin to dissolve the blocks experienced at lower vibratory states. Thoughtfully consider that the level of consciousness you generate is also contributing to the collective consciousness. It is our responsibility (our ability to respond, not react) to consider the frequency we share with the universe. This is a clarion call to your soul to initiate a personal metamorphosis in 2019. Let’s create the opportunity to experience an empowered and sovereign existence, together! We are the ones we have been waiting for...

DO YOU WANT TO BE A BETTER MANIFESTER? 10 TIPS ON HOW TO USE YOUR INTUITION TO GET WHAT YOU REALLY WANT by NATASHA J. ROSEWOOD Is the law of attraction a hit and miss affair for you? Why can’t you magically attract a new car, a better job or my soul mate? You can. But instead of just thinking something into existence, you might also need to intuit your way there. When manifestation isn’t working for you, what might be in the way? The thing that you want is not for your highest good. The absence of the thing that you desire might cause you to find your true purpose. Your negative subconscious beliefs are blocking the outcome. E.g. I’m not good enough. You are not emotionally ready. Your timing may not be in synchronicity with the Universe. You are too attached to the outcome and fear is getting in the way.

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

Manifestation requires all levels of your consciousness to flow congruently toward your desire. If you don’t know what you want, choose the feeling you want. Envision the matching scenario. What is yours will come to you. What is not yours will not come to you. Do without doing and everything will get done. Be, think, feel and believe in what you desire. Ask your Intuition: Is this right for me? And listen for the truth. What you desire is your life purpose. You have everything you need to achieve it. You are always right about how you feel, even when your ego disagrees. Act as if you are already excited, relieved, free, prosperous, loved and healthy. Trust your intuition completely. It is your truth, your guide and only wants your highest good. What you desire, already exists in the ether. Claim it!

overcome struggle with

support AND TIME By Tracy Munson

Why get support? It took me a long time to take the step to investing in myself and my personal growth and development. I do not have any regrets, however it was a struggle for a lot longer than it needed to be for me. Hindsight being 20/20, I would have sought out support a lot sooner. Looking back, I went years struggling, going deeper and deeper; becoming incredibly miserable in the process‌the pain, the heartbreak, the defeat, the self-hate, the guilt and the shame. Many will go through this, many have, but you do not have to do it alone. Investing in ourselves can be hard! One of the first questions I asked was, How much is getting support going to cost? I had a lot of guilt about spending money on myself for counselling and coaching, until one of my coaches asked me, "How much is this costing you NOT to do it? It was costing me so much! My happiness, my marriage, my



family's happiness, my energy, my time, my dreams, and so much more. Overcoming struggle takes time, support, patience, and doing your best. Your body will communicate with you when something is "off" through a whole assortment of emotions and or physical symptoms. It will start off quiet and will gradually get louder and louder. My advice with love and from experience: listen and become aware of the queues, the whispers: before they get too loud, get the support you need, and take the time you need to heal and grow.

the off leash

advantage by Tamryn Fudge

Being off leash means everything to your dog. When your dog is off leash, they get a sense of freedom and trust from you that they cannot experience any other way. It builds their confidence so much to be trusted out there to stay with you. Getting to sniff anything they want, for as long as they like – this is heaven for most dogs. Being off leash outside is so comforting and soothing to a dog, and it provides increased emotional and mental wellbeing.

Tamryn Fudge is a shamanic dog trainer who helps people relax and enjoy their dogs so they can have the relationship they’ve always wanted. Group and private sessions for puppies, dogs and problems. 250.573.1744|facebook/InfiniteDogShamanicDogTraining

Off leash walks are extra important for dogs that are described as being “high energy”. High energy dogs are given force-paced exercise such as ball fetching – think of “chuck-it” dogs who chase the ball back and forth at high speeds. Force-paced running causes the nervous system to get ramped up, particularly for dogs whose instincts are to track and chase moving things, like herding dogs and sight hounds. Contrast this with natural-paced exercise, such as off leash trail walks – where a dog is allowed to choose his or her own pace and can run anywhere they like to explore things and enjoy themselves naturally. This has a very relaxing effect on the nervous system, and usually calms dogs much more than any amount of force-paced exercise. Natural-paced exercise is best during off leash walks with your dog. If you would like to get off leash with your dog, it is not nearly as difficult as you imagine. With tools such as long lines, emergency recalls, play recall and approach work, you can get there with more ease than you ever expected. If you would like to start off leash with your dog – get out there and try it. If you would like support to get started, find a dog trainer or a friend to help build your confidence.
