Deep Listening, Daring Steps;
A Radiant Life Retreat
Join me March 14-17th, 2013 in Ojai, California.
….Registration opens January 16th, 2013!
Meanwhile, I want to tell you a story….
About two years ago, I began to realize I was thirsty. I was thirsty for silence and stillness and time. I knew I needed time to return to the Sanctuary of myself– outside of family and work. I made a decision then to start taking some days to myself in beautiful Ojai. My first trip, I spent just one night. My second trip, I spent two. And right around the fourth time away, I stayed three nights. These were cherished and profound times of self-discovery and creativity.
You can download and listen here to my whole process, which contains poems I wrote throughout my time away as well as my journey back to myself…
Why do I tell you this now?
It was this journey that led me here to YOU. And to the Radiant Life Retreats. My time alone and fully in my chosen rhythm of creation allowed me to choose what I love at a whole new level. And one of the things I surely love is working with women and diving deep to facilitate changes yearned for and needed.
And this is where YOU come in and come in BIG.
I want to welcome you to a circle of remarkable women– women who are committed to growing out of closure and moving with patience and grace to greater freedom in their lives. I want you to experience a circle of care that reminds you that you are LOVE. I want you to trust your body’s infinite wisdom and let it lead you into new life territory. I want you to come to this retreat, steep in a circle of goodness and leave shining and ready for your next major life step.
And how does this all happen?
One part intention + One part willingness + One part vulnerability + One part play + One part daring = New territory.
I use astrology, poetry and movement to gently help you move into a new way of participating in and with life. Your astrological chart is a powerful map to get to the heart of who you are. Poetry cuts through to essence and speaks what is often held close or deep within. It is the great revealer of all that matters. I use movement because that’s what we want. We want movement in our lives. We want growth. We want unfolding. Embodiment helps us truly mark changes in consciousness. Embodiment takes us out of the ongoing monologue that may have been our companion for years without respite.
And who am I?
I’m going to let Anne offer her gorgeous words.
She wrote this poem for me after attending 3 Radiant Life Retreats.
And I share this with you from the perspective of a loving participant.
I am also the daughter of an Astrologer and an architect. I love the territory where the most VAST meets the most concrete.
I am hungry for poetry – spoken and written and shared.
I move my body in the name of freedom and ACT in the name of presence.
I believe that every circle holds invisible threads of exquisite love and care criss-crossing infinitely, weaving us inseparably.
I know the more generous we are with our own daring and fears, transformations and uncertainties, the more we liberate love in others.
Past Retreat Location…
Villa Ojai (http://www NULL.villaojai NULL.com), a gorgeous home built 5 years ago and is just 5 minutes walking distance from downtown. The home provides comfortable, communal lodging. There are 5 main rooms with 2-5 women sleeping in each. There are ample places to have solo time. Meals are cooked in the Villa Ojai kitchen by several different talented women. Our retreat participants were wonderfully fed during our last retreat.
Oh…I almost forgot to tell you. There is a gorgeous hot tub and cold splash for guests to enjoy as well. Here is a photo of it…
I will do your chart before the retreat. Your experience will be deeply enhanced and I will be able to serve you infinitely better by doing it. In order to make this financially feasible, I offer a reading for $100 for my retreat participants. Contact me at to schedule this once you register.
Would you like to hear more about the retreat first hand?

Peg has attended all 5 Radiant Life Retreats. Here’s What Peg Had to Say at the October 2011 Retreat.
“Heidi’s Radiant Life retreats are rare, safe healing communities of dynamic women . . . and they exist only for a sacred weekend in time. I have been privileged to attend four of them over the past few years. They feed my soul in ways I have not been able to find anywhere else in the 60+ years of my life. Every retreat empowers me toward deep change that brings me closer to my authentic self. Whether I come knowing exactly what I want to work on or not, I benefit in ever new and surprising ways from the power of the group learning experience. It often wakes me up to new layers of my own issues.
Heidi is a warrior for love . . . love of self and love of others. She is a highly creative facilitator who provides the opportunity to be courageously honest with ourselves. She masterfully weaves the talents of the whole group into actions, dramas and movement that enable powerful new experiences of the self to emerge. The mix of ages, talents and life paths in the group inevitably present me with the experiences I need for greater appreciation of the beauty and rich variety of different energies of the people in my own life. I learn about the myriad ways human beings use those energies, for better or worse, to create the world we live in. Every woman I have met at these retreats graced my life; they have inspired my own journey in countless ways and renewed my faith in the human spirit.”
