    Are you ready to embark on a life-transforming journey to empower yourself and unleash your potential?

    Join Cathy Vartuli, Peter Petersen, and Monique Darling, three of the most transformational facilitators, and top sex educators, and permission bringers of our field for a fun based, experiential weekend, that is filled to the brim with practical real life skills on how to live life on your own terms.

    Once you learn and begin practicing these skills, life stops happening to you and you start happening to life.

    The outer world is a reflection of the inner world. Everywhere you look, you see your inner condition reflected in your outer circumstances and especially in your relationships. Life is a dance of relationships. There is just no avoiding it. And no relationship is more important than the one to yourself.

    This event is primarily for people who feel like they don’t have enough time to nurture and nourish themselves, yet who think they have all the time in the world to hold space, and take care of others.

    We will offer simple, practical, and applicable routines to return self care as YOUR top priority, which can help you align your work and the rest of your life with the results that matter most.

    One of the most overlooked aspects of relating is your own relationship to self care. Peter has devoted the last 15 years in experimenting, studying, and living 9 simple principles that can help you keep your own emotional, physical, spiritual, and mental components running at YOUR optimum level. We are offering fun experiential exercises to help you bring these 9 self care tools home with you.

    Tips to help quiet the mind and be more aware of your behaviors. We will touch on some mindful meditation practices like qigong, and dance and go over some simple nutrition hacks on how to nourish the body easier.
    Basically we will learn easy strategies, that you can do at home or on the road, that help you consistently operate at “Your best”

    Peter brings his love of a moving meditation from China called Qigong. So what is Qigong?

    For thousands of years people have captured the essence of these simple movements to maintain balance and to heal themselves mentally and physically. Qigong accelerates healing and has a positive clinically recognized effect on almost all physical symptoms. Qigong helps heal the physical body and release stress of the mind. By moving your body, releasing trigger points, and stimulating your circulatory system, you literally become your own massage therapist. Simultaneously these movements help release negative emotions and memories that you no longer need and allow yourself to be much more present in your "now" so in a sense you become your own psychiatrist at the same time! Come learn how to build the foundation of being your own health advocate and enjoy emotional freedom and connection to all that is!

    Enjoy meditation, integration, communication and opening to new aspects of how to live a more sustainable life by you just being more you...including Qigong, play, dance, silence, and spaces to say all the things you may never have been allowed to say, certainly never before encouraged and witnessed so deeply. Practicing fearless relating with yourself and every other relationship you will ever have. We are also dedicating a whole section devoted to self care including communion with nature, body work to release and move stored emotion and trauma from the body, enhancing the spirit with differing paths of meditation, and a deep dive into nutritional awareness to create self love, self acceptance, and to maintain our physical bodies in optimum health.

    Let's give permission to the real self to emerge from within. We have the power to transform ourselves and our reality, and to inspire the souls around us. We all want to feel the powerful force of love and passion in our daily life.
