We’ll be joined by a variety of best-selling authors, billboard charting singer-songwriters, and speakers for a journey of Healing & Hope!


Why We’re Doing This…

This 2 day online journey is based off of our past highly successful in-person retreat and is intended to create a safe place to focus on our deepest desires and connect to what is holding us back from living them. We will be open to how we are divinely led from a powerful place of surrender to accepting “what is” and releasing the resistance that is causing suffering. In the beauty of sacred connection, we’ll come together in community to share laughter and tears as we take a much needed “Retreat” from the world around us.

Guest Presenters

Rev Donna Davis RN RScP RM & Norma L. Anderson LMT RScP RM

We teach a positive way of thinking to transform your life using tools that we have collected from great teachers for the past 15 years. We are healthcare workers on the frontlines and are also the proud owners of a Mind/Body/Spirit Day-Spa. We want to be a beacon of light during these times of a global pandemic. As healthcare workers, we have noticed that we who give, sometimes never replenish ourselves. We help the givers of our communities to replenish so that they can give from a non depleted space. We use tools of rest and relaxation to facilitate healing for women, especially nurses. These include, Reiki, massage, facials, health coaching, life coaching, spiritual council, sound healing, even tarot card readings.

Vision: To create a world that works for everyone #CSL

Mission: To enhance lives through personal empowerment.

Motto: The beauty is in the ashes.

You may not know her name, but you will recognize her voice and her chart topping music.  Jill Colucci is a multi-platinum, award-winning songwriter with #1 hits including Song of the Year “No One Else On Earth” by Wynonna Judd,  “I’m Gonna Be Somebody” by Travis Tritt, and “Anymore” which she co-write with Travis. She has sold over 20 million records worldwide. Jill has sung multiple songs in your favorite films and television shows, numerous national tv commercials, and has entertained America as the performer and writer of ABC’s America’s Funniest Home Videos.  Although Jill’s life was blessed with great success, she experienced what she refers to as “The Lost Decade” where she gave herself over to the caregiver process when she lost her parents, her sister Joni and ultimately almost lost her own life. During this time, her music changed, her heart was opened more fully, and her songs became the vehicle for her healing. Jill’s life is an expression of her triumph over loss and the manifestation of a new path in life. Jill currently travels the world sharing her music and message with all those who have experienced any kind of loss in their lives, hoping to prove that when words fail, music speaks.
