The Equus Soul Retreat is an intimate, magical, experiential retreat 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. Bring your whole life in and come out with a deeper experience of peace, joy, gratitude and velocity in the areas of life that matter most to you.
Through connecting with nature, working with horses and experiencing sound bowl healing, inquiry, art, honey tasting, spiritual guidance, 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, trust the unfolding and tap into new, unforeseen, limitless possibilities.
"The experience of the retreat 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."
One of my greatest joys is collaboration and engaging in conversations that free the spirit and give new life to the soul.
For the last 27 years, I've been a student and leader of transformational work and continue to learn what I teach. I believe in sharing from the heart, being authentic, having a good sense of humor and leading through the art of storytelling.
I've had the honor of being a Staff Member and Coach for Landmark Education Corporation and a Senior Workshop Leader, Coach and Trainer for PAX Programs/Alison Armstrong for 11 years.
Having led over 150 live weekend courses, as well as creating and leading retreats, tele-courses and leadership programs, I've gained a tremendous love and understanding for what it is to be human and the shifts in perspective that set us free!
With a vision to empower people to honor themselves, discover their personal truth and lead joyful, soul fueled lives, I founded Shine Life Design.
I live in Park City, Utah with my husband, Seth, and our two sons. I enjoy everything nature, music, reading, skiing, hiking, epic adventures, good food, a good laugh and inspiring conversations!
"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.

"The chart breaking down decision making was a game changer in my life. 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."
