" I highly recommend this retreat for women ready to shed their past, start a new chapter, transition, or reinvent themselves.... you will know yourself in a new way after this retreat. Whatever it is you might be stepping into or want to come back to with fresh eyes, this retreat gives you the experiences and the tools to gain new perspective on your life. I love how thoughtfully the activities were curated and that I felt both closely held, and given space to process and integrate. Thank you, Jaime and all our instructors and teachers who made this a one-of-a-kind experience."

Laurie has the ability to bring out the creative spirit in even the most reluctant explorers!
  • Full-Day Workshop with the horses, Master Equus Coach, Erin Cutshall and Equus Coach in training, Jaime Myers.  Horses have unique abilities to mirror behaviors, communicate non-verbally, and respond to subtle cues from humans. By working with the horses and an Equus Coach, you'll obtain powerful personal insights and feedback to illuminate and transform your energy and limiting patterns of behavior.  No previous horse experience is required, and all work takes place on the ground (no riding).

  • Ecstatic Dance and Cacao with local DJ, Jordan Badger.   Jordan is a Utah based artist, musician and DJ who's performed throughout the United States and world, including multi-week tours through Indonesia, festivals in Vietnam and clubs in Europe and Australia. As a musician, his work oscillates between introspective, meditative pieces and uplifting, energetic dance songs. As a DJ, his sets range from percussive, primordial rhythms to jubilant pop anthems, always with an aim to inspire movement and dance.  The ceremonial Cacao offered at the beginning is a plant medicine that opens the heart and gives us an opportunity to connect at a deeper level.  
  • Constellation Contemplation and Telescope Tour with Astronomer, The Dark Ranger; an enthralling stargazing experience in the no light zone of Boulder Mountain.  Through the stories of the constellations and gazing of the stars, witness and be present to the grand organized design of life.
  • Sound Bowl Healing and Breath Session with Shelley and Billy. As a level two Wim Hof Instructor and Sound Bowl Goddess, Shelley brings a unique combination of breath work and sound vibration that bypasses the cognitive mind and speaks right to the soul. Billy brings humor and play with his gift of drumming and violin. This 2 hour session is profoundly healing at a cellular level and provides daily breath practices. 
  • Time to bask and be restored by nature at the expansive Boulder Mountain Ranch Property.  Since day one, responsible land management and sustainable practices have been at the core of Boulder Ranch's mission. They are committed to protecting resources that the beautiful landscape offers, and are always searching for new ways to conserve the land. Some of the projects they’ve completed are installing solar lights and a solar-powered shower, planting native seeds, and growing their own organic veggies on property.

"I absolutely loved the Shine retreat I attended!! The environment was so supportive of the work I was there to do. The generosity and grace of the leadership and support and the camaraderie of the participants created exactly what I needed to grow. I'm still feeling the effects of being there. I notice a shift in the way I see myself and the way I see the world. I feel more peaceful and more grounded and solid. I'm getting more clarity about my vision and what is calling to me.

Equus Soul Retreat at Boulder Mountain Leaders and Contributors

Jaime Myers:

My greatest joy is engaging in expansive experiences and inquiry that free the spirit and give new life to the soul.  My art form is creating and holding space with essential ingredients for magic and deep transformation. 

At age 21 I was introduced to the world of personal growth and transformation and for the past 28 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 in 2006 and offer retreats, coaching and online courses.  

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! 

"My favorite part of the retreat was um, ALL of it. Our dear gentle leader, Jaime, wove each session together in a way that wasn't preachy, just perfect. I highly recommend this retreat!"

Igniting Play and Creative Expression through Art

I am 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.

Wim Hof Breath and Sound Bowl Experience

It's simple and profound. Utilization of the breath and the awakening activation of alchemy crystal bowls, drums, and chimes serve you in your inner exploration of wholeness. My partner, Billy, and I guide you with intuition, presence, and wisdom through the myriad landscapes of inner knowing, including your connections with the cosmic realms, elemental nature, and the foundational Sacred geometries within you. You'll be supported to feel at ease, comfortable and able to go deep into your wholeness, where healing is a natural byproduct. In this vibration you will deeply rejuvenate on the cellular level, refine your nervous system, harmonize your inner vibratory world and activate your inner vision connected to your gentle loving heart, carving a pathway for your Creatorship/Soulful self to land. 

“Sound vibrations speak right into the soul, the body and bypasses the cognitive mind. When that happens a door opens. When you go through that door you will discover miracles and occurrences you’ve never imagined.”
- Tom Kenyon
