The Shine Retreat Austin

Accessing Your Divine Power Through Rest and Play
As women in a hard-driving, masculine-dominated culture, we’ve learned to ignore our body’s wisdom and innate intuition and instead
power up, power through, hustle and survive.
The result is exhaustion, burn out, and the ultimate loss of our divine power.
So many of us yearn to soften, feel more feminine, and experience abundance with fun and ease.
If you’re ready to access your divine power through rest and play and tune into your inspired vision for the new year,
Join us for this 3-night, intimate, transformational retreat.


What would be possible for you and in your life, if you had the space, support and community to rest, play, and tune into and create what you most desire with EASE?

Maybe tapping into the source of your power doesn’t have to be hard or daunting, and maybe you don’t have to be a different type of person to be playful, vibrant and divinely powerful. 

Like Glinda the Good Witch said to Dorothy, 

"You had the power all along, my dear."

The Accessing Your Divine Power Through Rest and Play Retreat is a fun, magical, transformational experience that will leave you inspired and in touch with an expanded version of yourself, and your divine power and vision.

"Participating with Shine has shifted my perspective in every area of my life. I'm loving me re-invented self and clarity. It's so liberating!"

Your Retreat Experience...

Arrival Day 

  • Be welcomed and pampered with a beautiful dinner. Ahhh, you're here. 
  • Settle in with an equisite sound bath to quiet the mind, calm the nervous system and relax into the space. 
  • Snuggle up in your luxurious room surrounded by the healing sights and sounds of bountiful Austin.
  • Your Soul hugs you goodnight. 

The following days include…

  • Sunrise meditative yoga overlooking the beautiful landscape of Texas wine country.
  • Ease filled breakfasts at your own pace.
  • Inquiry Sessions with Jaime Myers and Wendy Newman to...
    • stop the madness of the never ending pushing, striving and surviving.  There is so much more possible in each and every moment!
    • explore and access your divine feminine power through rest and play - you are magnificent! 
    • gain shifts in perspective for greater ease, freedom and inner-peace, in the midst of life's challenges
    • learn how to tune deeper into your innate intuition and body's brilliant feedback 
    • money, honey! with play, divine power and vision, join together as a sisterhood to transform old, tired belief patterning and step into new ways of receiving abundance  
  • Art Sessions with Laurie Eastwood to gather around the table, move from head to heart, play with an abundance of materials (the good stuff) and ignite the divinely powerful and brilliant creator in you.   
  • Coconut Release Ceremony.  This visceral, one-of-a-kind experience releases what no longer serves you with the use of coconuts! (Thank you to Tosha Silver)
  • Full Moon New Year Vision Cacao Gathering.  This beautiful plant medicine opens the heart and gives you an opportunity to connect at a deeper level. The ceremony will include both reflection and tuning into your 2023 vision in community and under the beautiful full moon. 
  • Sound Bowl Experience. Sound vibration bypasses the cognitive mind and speaks right to the soul, providing a profoundly healing experience at a cellular level. 
  • Evenings at the long table for the lost art of long meals to connect, laugh, share and enjoy delicious and nurturing catered eats and unlimited chocolate. 
  • Enjoy vino or mock-tail sunset gatherings. Life is beautiful. 
  • Luxurious, blissful accommodations.  Night, night.
  • Come as your expression of play and as you (really) are soiree on our final night.
  • 2 virtual post-retreat group coaching sessions with Jaime and Wendy for integrating your insights and experience. 

Optional experiences at the retreat:

  • One-on-one time with Jaime and Wendy, your personal thought partners, to further reflect and explore. So often it's that one insight into a blind spot or next "ah ha!" that shifts everything.  
  • Blissful body work massage (additional fee).

Your Retreat Experience also includes...

  • A completely private campus, available for your retreat only.  This secluded 6000 square feet ranch overlooking the Barton Creek Valley is surrounded by 33 acres of wooded areas and pasture and offers star-filled night skies with only the sound of night birds, the rustle of the trees, and the howl of a distant coyote.
  • Enjoy your free time relaxing, enjoying the high-walled courtyard that’s filled with plants to attract hummingbirds and butterflies. Or hang out on the many patios, pool and fireplace.  
  • Take a dip in the pool, relax in the jacuzzi, or hike over two miles of maintained trails on the 33-acre estate. 

Rest. Play. Connection. Community.

Retreat Leaders

Jaime Myers:

Hi, I'm happy you're here.  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 inspiring 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 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 people 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, 10 years of retreats and worked with 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 opportunities yet. 

Wendy Newman:


I am on a mission to empower people to be free, powerful, fearless, and wildly and unapologetically themselves. 

I’m known as a media-celebrated author and relationship expert, and I’ve led hundreds of workshops for over 80,000 people internationally. 

Committed to communication and to people being heard and understood, I pursued my higher education at Vista College in Berkeley with a certificate in American Sign Language and Deaf Culture Studies (it only took six years). 

I celebrate those emboldened to live their truth. I am an advocate for love, LGBTQ rights, open relationships, and anything else out there that empowers folx to live their best lives.

People who work with me say I’m clear, compassionate, humorous, and unafraid to be myself.


Laurie Eastwood:

Hello.  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.
