September 27 - October 1
Create Your Life with Intention & Confidence
- Are your current thoughts, emotions, and physical condition functioning in a way that best helps you to create the life you want?
- Do you feel disconnected from yourself and your heart?
- Do you feel like you’re running on autopilot every day, and life is just throwing things at you without your control?
- When life gets tough, do you typically see your hardships through the eyes of stress and trauma?
- Do you have a deep desire to build your inner power and become the true master of your life, so that you’re not so easily affected by your environment and circumstances?
Are you ready to come home to your heart?
You have the power to tap into your deep awareness and intentionally choose to release emotional thought patterns and habits that do not serve your highest good. You absolutely have the power to make new choices and create a new lifestyle for yourself.
It starts with an understanding of how energy works inside and outside of you, and learning to create the energetic balance and harmony that will cultivate health, happiness, and peace in your life.
Based on a 10,000-Year-Old Energy Philosophy
The LOVE HEALS Retreat is a 5-day onsite workshop in Sedona Mago Center for Well-being and Retreat, surrounded by the natural beauty of Sedona. Nestled amongst the powerful natural vortexes of Sedona’s famed land, you will deeply connect your energy to nature’s energy and use it to mindfully reflect, heal, nurture, reconcile, recharge, rejuvenate, reinvigorate, and love yourself.
The essence of this workshop revolves around the 10,000-year-old ancient East Asian energy philosophy of “Water Up Fire Down,” which holds the key to unlocking the limitless potential of your body’s power centers that help activate natural energy healing of body, mind, and spirit.
Experience the Power of Self Love
As you learn to tap into your inner power and create the positive energy flows in your body, you will naturally start to gain confidence and trust in yourself. With this deep confidence and trust, you’ll experience expressing yourself authentically as well as genuine love for yourself and others.
As seen in the documentary LOVE HEALS
The LOVE HEALS retreat is based on the group transformational experience featured in the documentary, LOVE HEALS.
LOVE HEALS follows the journey of Dana, a chronic pain sufferer in search of healing. Her partner, Krisanna, is a filmmaker, and together they travel the country to understand how this ancient principle has helped so many heal and to see what's possible for those experiencing these practices for the first time. The film will be aired on PBS starting in the fall of 2023.
