The Equus Soul Retreat is an intimate and magical experience to re-connect with your truth, the wonder of nature, the fulfillment of community and the inspiration of being part of something bigger than ourselves.
Through connecting with nature, working with horses, inquiry, art, community and delicious plant based meals, you'll have the opportunity to transform limiting perceptions, tap into your powerful intuition, see the perfection of your unique path and tap into new, unforeseen possibilities.
"The experience of Shine brought about a momentous shift in my thinking and empowered me to make a major positive shift in my life. I highly recommend giving yourself this gift. It goes far beyond taking a few days off and bonding with other like-minded women. You'll discover parts of yourself that you may have forgotten. Just go. "
"When the voice and the vision on the inside is more profound, and more clear and loud than all opinions on the outside, you've begun to master your life."
Dr. John Demartini
"For me, the biggest epiphany happened at the closing of the weekend - a big swirling set of datapoints coming together in one crystal clear moment - and I shed so much baggage in that instant."
My greatest joy is engaging in experiences and inquiry that free the spirit and give new life to the soul. My passion and art form is creating safe spaces that bring together essential ingredients for magic and deep transformation.
At age 21 I was introduced to the world of personal growth and transformation and over the past 27 years I've had the absolute privilege of being a staff member, coach, leadership trainer, workshop leader and program designer for organizations committed to a better world.
With a vision of women being empowered to honor themselves, discover and align with their personal truth and lead joyful, soul-fueled lives, I founded Shine Life Design, LLC and offer retreats, coaching and online programs.
Having led over 200 live weekend courses as well as worked with thousands of people in various structures for personal growth, I've gained a tremendous love and understanding for what it is to be human and the shifts in perspective that set us free!
I live in the mountains of Utah with my husband, Seth and our two teenage sons who've provided my greatest transformational opportunity yet.
"The coaching at the retreat has really shifted my perspective in every area of my life. I'm noticing things now that don't fit for me any longer and I'm loving my re-invented self and clarity. It’s very liberating! "

Igniting Play and Creative Expression through Art
I'm a champion for creativity on every level. I founded Mining the Magic with the strong belief that we, as human beings, are wired to create. I am intrigued by the creative spirit within each of us, that unfettered joy of making something…anything.
Embracing our creativity challenges us, puts us in a place of the unknown, expands our understanding, opens our hearts, asks us to be courageous and to trust in the process. Every piece of creative endeavor is a new beginning, a new possibility.
I began my art journey by creating black and white photos that I hand tinted, printed, framed and sold in the wholesale market, including Restoration Hardware and Eddie Bauer Homestore. It became a very successful business which I loved until I didn’t. It became familiar and known, the opposite of what creativity offers, the magic in the unknown! After 12 years, I left the business and began my search to understand and embrace the creative process.
During the creative sessions, I encourage trusting the process and embracing mystery over mastery. Like a metaphor for life; we practice playing and engaging with the art from a place of curiosity, courage and compassion.
"My experience at the retreat was transformative spiritually, emotionally and pragmatically. I took away so many tools and strategies to help me in my short term and long term decision making, thereby redefining and refining my path and goals. It was more valuable than I could have ever imagined."
