Modalities included on the sacred soul Retreat...
The Sacred Soul Retreat includes a powerful combination of modalities that can provide deep release, healing, clarity, insight and shifts within. These include meditation, group mediumship sessions & channellings, gentle yoga, intuition development exercises, inner child work, reiki, and crystal sound bowl healing.
Meditation is a part of this retreat for its ability to reduce stress, foster self-awareness, and promote spiritual connection. By providing a sanctuary of calm amidst life’s demands, meditation empowers women to explore their inner landscape, manage emotions, and cultivate a deeper sense of well-being. It also offers a great opportunity to practice releasing self-criticism or judgement.
Receiving divine guidance through mediumship brings your inner dialogue to light and allows you to feel seen. These messages gift you with a lightness that can foster the development of a successful career, healthy, happy relationship and peace with the difficulties of the past. We all want to live a lighter, happier life with ease, but we rarely know how to get there. Mediumship provides you with a “roadmap” of where you are, why you’re there, and how to get where you are meant to go – which is ultimately where you want to be.
The combination of these modalities can help with
Intuition Development Exercises
Practices and group exercises to practice developing the skill of hearing and strengthening your own intuition, your own inner wisdom and your own messages of guidance. The practices of meditation and breathwork throughout the week will also help to strengthen and connect to this inner voice.
Inner Child Work & How it relates to the soul
You are a soul experiencing life in a physical body. At one or more points in our lives, whether large or small, we have experienced trauma. At times, in order to protect ourselves, our minds block out the traumatic event—if you cannot remember what happened, you may struggle to understand it and let it go. Inner child work from a parts & soul perspective to helps us gain insight into our limiting beliefs, allowing us to process and reparent, and understand the connection between mind, body, and soul.
Yoga promotes relaxation and reduces stress through controlled breathing (pranayama) and mindfulness techniques. It activates the parasympathetic nervous system, which counters the body’s stress response, leading to decreased levels of cortisol (the stress hormone) and increased feelings of calm and well-being. Yoga postures and movements massage internal organs, promoting better circulation and detoxification. Poses like twists stimulate digestion, while inversions aid in lymphatic drainage, benefiting the immune system. And so many more benefits!
Sound bath & Reiki
Sound baths and Reiki offer holistic healing benefits for the mind, body, and spirit. They promote deep relaxation, stress reduction, and emotional healing by balancing energy and releasing tension held within the body. These modalities also enhance mental clarity, support the body’s natural healing processes, and facilitate a deeper connection to one’s spiritual self.

Meet your facilitator
Her journey to find answers about spirituality and life outside of the physical body began at a young age. She found herself questioning her soul’s purpose, following her intuition, and receiving messages and “inner knowings” as young as she can remember.
Today, she shares her wisdom through various platforms, including workshops, retreats, and online courses. Her teachings empower individuals to awaken their spiritual potential, find inner peace, and live authentically.
Laurie gently guides her clients into letting go of the trauma and that which no longer serves them and empowers them with channelled guidance on their journey of personal growth and spiritual exploration.
She believes in the inherent divinity within each person and strives to help others discover their own inner truth and connection to their Creator.
