October 20 – 22, 2017

We will gather at the beautiful Lodge at Panther River
Just outside Sundre, Alberta,

The Lodge Location Map

The drive is beautiful! Once you get to the Bowden Exit 587 ,off the TCH, it’s about 1.5hrs to the Lodge. It took me a total of 3 hours from my door in Leduc to theirs at the Lodge. Google Maps is a little bit off on time.

SHIFT: Shine Your Light is going to be a weekend to remember! We’ll be surrounded by nature, planting seeds of discovery, growth & creativity. We will hear you, see you, embrace you, celebrate you, honour you, hold sacred space for you, love you, and be witness to your journey of becoming more of YOU.

The thing that is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself. ~ Anna Quindlen

When I started my healing journey in 2013, I didn’t understand then, what exactly I was trying to heal or where it was taking me. I was full of shame, guilt and not enough-ness. I’ve made some bad decisions and I’ve allowed some bad decisions to be made for me. I’ve been through an assortment of difficult and sometimes life changing situations. There were times that I felt I didn’t have control over my life but I also wasn’t in flow with it either. I’ve loved and lost. I’ve tried and failed. Sometimes, I didn’t even try. I’ve been hurt and I’ve hurt others. I have fallen MANY times in this lifetime. Somehow I managed to keep going anyway. Often times without even realizing or giving myself credit for the baby steps I’ve taken or the brave leaps and bounds that didn’t quite work out. Every single bit of it was a step in my journey to where I am today. Things changed when I began to recognize and celebrate even the tiniest of baby steps in the right direction. Sometimes the baby step was just making it to the other side of a tough situation.

It can be difficult to shine our light. There are always triggers in life that make us feel small or unsafe to shine. I believe if we do the work to heal the stories of the past, we free ourselves to become the best versions of ourselves. And when we become the best versions of ourselves our lights shine bright. It is when we are shining our light that our tribe is able to find us, that we can give more love to those around us and create positive change in our lives. I also believe that learning to shine your light begins within…..it all starts within your own heart.

There is great love here for you ~ Abraham Hicks

SHIFT: Shine Your Light is a weekend about connecting with your soul and each other. We’ll share, journal and connect. We’ll make Truth Cards & She Did It Anyway books (no art experience necessary). There will be free time in nature, creative time in the Art Tipi, campfires, meals made with love and a PJ party to C E L E B R A T E. If the weather cooperates, maybe we’ll even get to watch a sunset together! We’ll experience some beautiful processes, bask in the spirit of sisterhood and open our hearts.  It’s time to shine, beautiful soul. xo

TRUTH CARDS: Sometimes it is just a few true and beautiful words that give us all of the hope that we need to keep going…and just a FEW true words really can make all of the difference in the world…

Melody’s idea for Truth Cards came as a way to overpower the awful script that sometimes runs in our head, preventing our souls from feeling whole or healed. Truth cards are little messages of love and truth that are written directly to our souls….telling us the TRUTH when we are believing words that are keeping us from believing the love and truth.

SHE DID IT ANYWAY: During this empowering day, we will write the story of what we have overcome in life and how we will choose to guide our life in the future by continuing to climb every mountain and jump over every hurdle to live our dreams.

Every heroic woman has had to overcome adversity, challenges and failures…one common trait in all heroines is that they have all chosen to look their difficulties in the face and move forward toward their purpose anyway.

We will be creating a SHE DID IT ANYWAY book, each page telling the story of our own difficult challenges, and our resolve to live the life we want to live in spite of our challenges.

Meet the Shine Your Light Sisters and let’s shine TOGETHER!
