WHAT’S NEW? Hibernation Isn’t Just for the Bears!

It is getting to that point in the Winter where I am seriously missing sun, warmth, the ability to go outside exposing even an inch of my face and the energy that surrounds in the warmer months.  It is very easy to become housebound and begin to hibernate and isolate from friends, social outings or even going outside to run errands. I do find myself dreaming of warmer locations, brighter days and the ability to meet a friend for coffee without the annoyance of a winter parka.  

So as the anxiety creeps up I remind myself that we all need this period of hibernation.  Not to eat whatever we want and sleep non-stop, but at the same to allow our body, mind and spirit to rest, to refresh and to prepare.  Perhaps it is time to be still and present and begin knocking off the to do list. To learn, to grow spiritually and to give ourselves permission to hibernate. It has reminded me to return to my regular yoga practice, my cheap therapy of going to the gym and that this anxiousness is worry about the future and not being present with the time I currently have. 

Blessings & love, Sheri

Gathering of the Shamans
May 3rd-5th, 2019

In ancient times, energy workers known as shamans used rituals, tools, and wisdom to provide guidance and healing for the people of their tribes.

Their magic was largely lost to the world with the progress of science and technology, but the spark of that fire never completely went out. However, modern day teachers have reached back through time to reclaim these practices and integrate them with our contemporary lives.

Join us in the mystical setting of Sedona to meet the leading shamanic teachers of our day. This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to retreat from your usual patterns of living and learn how to harness your inner power in entirely new ways. You will return to your life with fresh vision and know how to create your own reality as the work of art it was meant to be.

This gathering will be held at the Sedona Mago Retreat Center, surrounded by red monoliths, Native American ruins and majestic mountains, the Retreat Center offers 163 acres of beautifully landscaped land honoring Mother Earth’s treasures. Designed to work with the natural healing energy of Sedona, you can relax and rejuvenate body, mind, and spirit.

Trip Tuition:  Early Bird Tuition – $1,197 USD double occupancy (good from October 15 – January 31, 2018). Your ticket to this event includes the entire program of sessions with all of the teachers and full room-and-board.

Retreat Mastermind Morocco:
May 11th – 18th, 2019

If you have been dreaming of running your own retreats for your tribe then this is THE perfect retreat for you! If you’re a transformation retreat leader who’s ready to learn the art and science of drop-dead-fabulous, high-converting trip pages for all your retreats – plus practical strategies for retreat planning + marketing – then join Sheri + Kerrianne in exotic Marrakesh for this unforgettable mastermind adventure!

We’ll be spending seven fabulous nights in the beautiful city of Marrakesh enjoying the wonderful culture, food, shopping, and the charming décor of the fabulous Villa Dinari. You’ll feel like you’ve found a secret oasis that only YOU know about.

We’ll have two nights out on the town to experience the fabulous international food scene (as well as perhaps a bout of belly dancing?). And we can’t forget a tour of the highlights of the city with our trusty guide Abdul exploring the old medina souks for djellaba robes, spices, babouches (Moroccan slippers), old carpets and colorful ceramics, perhaps visiting the old ruins of the El Badi Palace, or the stunning Bahia Palace (which truly is an architectural wonder).

And on top of ALL THAT, what would it mean to you if you picked up a handful of strategy gems that ended up netting you an additional $10-50k from your next retreat (and all your future trips too)!?! It would be amazing. So don’t miss this special retreat where you’ll learn the keys to planning, pricing, promoting, and monetizing your first (or next) transformational destination retreat.

Trip Tuition:  Early bird ENDS March 1st, 2019! Most meals and activities included. See trip page for details.

A False Sense of Security

When times get tough the human mind tends to lean towards fear – constantly projecting itself into an uncertain future. To survive this fear, the mind calms and tricks itself into feeling safe – an illusion of control. One of the common ways we do this is by asking endless questions and obtaining information that has absolutely no bearing on creating our dream and is a total waste of our energy, focus, time and personal power.

The need to know is one of the most potent strategies of the ego-mind and while there is a place for acquiring certain information, most of our questions are totally pointless. In our quest for information (rather than wisdom) it doesn’t matter if that information is truth – just having an answer is enough to lull us into a false comfort.

For example, many times I would ask my teacher a question and be satisfied with his answer and accept it as truth. But then an hour later he would say – how do you know if what I told you was truth? Is your mind so easily stupefied? Now that your need to know is satisfied – is all well in the world? Good point – I never saw that behavior in myself! So let’s see if you engage in this type of behavior without awareness. Here are a few questions you can ask yourself:

Do you constantly ask questions of people that you do not need to know? For example, most of us are in the habit of asking what people do for a living – but beyond that – do you really need to know all kinds of personal information about someone? Is it really your business? In conversation, do you feel that if you do not ask questions the silence will become uncomfortable? Rather than asking inane questions, consider sharing yourself instead, perhaps talking about an experience in life that made your heart sing.

Finding out personal information will not tell you who a person truly is – only what that person believes about themselves. It’s more important when creating connections with people to know who they are, not who they think they are. When you find out what is in their heart you will learn more about how they dream their life than from trying to interrogate them.

Do you ask a million questions about your surroundings when you are out and about? Asking questions about what is this and what is that will never change your life. It’s not necessary to know every detail of the places you visit. Many of us have gotten into the habit of being hyper-vigilant about our surroundings out of survival. In other words, when we were young we may have had difficult homes and we had to gather information to feel safe. A child growing up in an alcoholic home may have developed the habit of watching everything so they could stay out of the line of fire in case things became violent. But we’re not children anymore and we don’t need to know everything about everything in order to feel safe.

Do you constantly need to define everything around you to feel alright about where you are in the moment? We have a habit of naming everything around us, defining our surroundings. For example, we might be with a friend and say – “Look at that person, they look so trashy,” or “That store is awful,” “That décor is old fashioned” – and so on.

Once we have categorized everything around us we feel good and safe – we’ve got everything figured out. But do we? Just because you’ve made a story about everything and judged it according to what you believe doesn’t make it truth nor does it make you safer. It just means that you have created a lie to feel okay.

It’s important to know deeply that the entity asking the questions is not you. You are the limitless expression of spirit that is driving your body. When you connect with the power and glory of that – you no longer need to engage in all those extraneous mental activities to feel safe. Once you know who you are, how can you feel unsafe in a reality that you know you are creating? Only in our ignorance do we feel separate, fearful and victimized by life – because we forget we ARE life. I encourage you to watch yourself and answer these questions honestly, after all – the truth will set you free.

With all my love! Sheri
