Money, Mind & Transformation
Jun 23 @ 4:00 pm – Jun 25 @ 4:00 pm

MMTThe Money, Mind and Transformation retreat is a powerful and enriching  workshop and weekend retreat that past participants report changed their relationship with money. Through awareness practice, reflection and exercises, you will explore hidden money patterns, money related  beliefs and the obstacles that have prevented you from experiencing a include daily mindfulness meditation practice and time for relaxation and reflection in this country retreat setting. Over the weekend you  will work through the four-step money coaching foundation process of:

• identifying underlying “hard-wired” patterns • determining “core  issues” that stem from this patterning • beginning to gain new  awareness and understanding about these patterns • accessing insight  into unconscious money attitudes, beliefs & behaviors.

Money Coaching is exciting work that provides you with the opportunity to experience tremendous growth both personally and professionally. During the weekend you will examine and come to understand your own relationship with money and bring to awareness blockages that may have been keeping you from experiencing your potential.

Participants will be required to complete preparatory work before coming to the retreat. Through this workshop process you are fully immersed and engaged in your own money growth and as such need to  attend all sessions. There are limited spaces available for this  weekend retreat for women and a commitment to this process is  required.

The money retreat was about so much more than simply money. I was able to learn more about myself and my family and understand why I have the patterns/behaviours that I have. This has helped me to be more aware of parts of myself and why they exist and has helped me to make significant changes around my choices. At one point in my life I felt immobilized around issues with money, which caused incredible stress in my life..I can honestly say this no longer exists. I feel empowered and in control of this area of my life. I have made friends with the different parts of myself and am learning and practicing to ‘grow’ the parts that need to be more present. This has been helpful in personal relationships as well. I feel deep gratitude for the work I have done and continue to do with Sharon, I honestly don’t know where I would be had I not done this work.

Note: Individual coaching to work more deeply with the foundational activities is available post retreat.

*Rates include shared accommodation and all meals, which are vegetarian. They do not include any instructor fee. Sharon is sharing  her experience within the traditional understanding of Dana.
To understand Dana, please read the following:
What is Dana?
Teachers teaching by “Dana”, teach freely so that anyone, no matter  their financial means, can attend classes. Each time one receives teaching it is an opportunity to consciously practice generosity.
Giving money and other means of support expresses gratitude and continue. Each person receiving teachings determines the kind and amount of Dāna/Generous donation that they wish to give. This is not an exchange; it is a practice of openness and giving freely. This  practice brings awareness to thoughts, feelings and actions around money. A suggested general amount is $20-40 per day, (cash or
cheque) however one gives according to ones heart and one’s financial means. When deciding how much to offer one should think about what these teachings mean to you and try to give accordingly.
It is recommended that an offering of dāna be made at the beginning of a class or retreat, to establish the intention to make the most of  this opportunity. One can give additionally and to whatever amount
they choose. Dana is given at the time of the retreat.

The Facilitator:

Sharon e. Davison is a facilitator, coach, trainer, and meditation  practitioner who holds a degree (B Ed. Adult) from Brock University, a Career and Work Counsellor diploma, and is certified Money Coach
through the Money Coaching Institute in California. The common focus in her work is increasing awareness and making behavioural shifts.

Awaken Your Senses
Sep 23 @ 9:00 am – Sep 24 @ 3:00 pm

Horses are prey animals and depend entirely on their senses for survival. They share an unspoken language of feeling and sensing making them amazing teachers for us two legged.

Most of us humans use our commonly thought of senses such as sight, sound, smell, touch and taste when we are blessed to have them. Horses share these but also depend on their lifesaving ability to sense and process emotion energetically. It is important for them to feel fear in a distant herd mate and then take action on this sensation without indecision or hesitation. Both can be detrimental to both horses and humans.

Horses have a natural gift and ability to resonate and connect with another beings happiness, trust or confidence and this is a life-enhancing skill. For us humans it can be overwhelming to if we are not aware of how to nurture this gift. Horses also teach us about being present and living in the moment, as well as helping us to create greater awareness of our own intuitions and strengths.
We are now beginning to understand our own need to connect with this wisdom in order to live happier and more effective lives. The more we know about ourselves and this great journey of life the more we can appreciate and live a life of gratitude and wonder for the miracle that we are.

This delightfully insightful and magically delicious 2 day retreat overnight retreat is uniquely designed to:
• Help you to connect with and enhance your senses
• Teach you to listen to your body, its intuition and messages.
• Expand your skills and deepen your understanding on how to work with you energy.
• Heighten and understand your own intangible nonverbal insight
• Develop a deeper sense of awareness and connection.

This is a two day, one night retreat is for anyone who is wanting to better understand and experience what the sensing body has to share. Who wants to enhance and explore their other senses in a fun and experiential way.
