July Retreat - Inspiration, Growth & Soul Work

(posted: 08/19/2014)

Women of Light Foundation (WOLF) helped to plan and produce our first full-weekend retreat, The Law of Change, in July, and I am so happy to report that everyone who attended had some level of breakthrough or "A-hah!" moment.

The location, Villa Maria del Mar in Santa Cruz, was as soothing and peaceful as I had hoped it would be, and provided just the right setting for a deep dive into Soul work.

The work itself was exhausting yet exhilerating, and being right on the beach, with the Pacific Ocean just steps away, was rejuvenating and inspiring.

I could go on and on, but I'd like to let some of the particpants tell you about their experience in their own words.

From Margaret Benavides:
"This was a catalyst... It was not a passive, learn-from-the-spoken word-and-take-copious-notes type of event, but one that actively engaged us in focusing on our goals.

Since attending, parts of my goal have just been coming to me, plus my decisions are clear.

It was one of the best gifts I've given myself!!"

Ilona Robinson said:
"Catherine's teachings allowed me to reach a new level in my Energy work...[And] the beautiful setting for this retreat created the perfect atmosphere for transformation and reflection.

After the retreat, I was able to connect more deeply while helping animals and people through my work as a Healing Touch Practitioner."

And from L. Cameron:
"Catherine's retreats are summer camp for the Soul!

I felt worlds away from my life and was able to let go completely, relaxing into the ocean air and Catherine's spiritual intuition. We were all on paths of discovery led by one surprising self-revelation after another. As the last day came, I was surprised at how fast the time went by, how rejuvenated I was, and how much I learned about myself.

The entire experience truly was amazing grace."


Where Hope resides,
there you will find Faith
Within this Faith you will find
Trust, Forgiveness & Peace
In this Peace you will find
no room for worry or anger in your heart
