This is an intimate gathering for 5 Women

Do you ever catch your reflection in the mirror and wonder who that person staring back at you is?

She looks distant, unfulfilled or lost even?

You know you want and need to start making changes, but are not sure where to begin. Learn to love your reflection in the mirror again, by nourishing your body, mind and soul at a 3-day retreat for women planned just for you. Go within and find the vibrancy you know is there. Create a nourishing loving connection with your body so you can emerge with a new found radiance and confidence that you can find in the mirror and face the world with.

Imagine what it would be like to feel fully satisfied within your body and your life where all your senses feel fully alive.

Imagine feeling confident and inspired in your life again. Loving the reflection looking back at you in the mirror.

Imagine being inspired by nature and connecting with vibrant, color-rich foods that nourish from the inside out.

Imagine relaxing in the majestic and healing Rocky Mountains while soaking in a hot tub and having time just for you.

Imagine gifting yourself this time to nourish your body, mind and soul.

I recently attended a retreat with Dixie who is a knowledgeable and intuitive leader.  She is gently honest and deeply caring when it came to pointing out a challenge we were facing in the moment, but she brilliantly and beautifully navigated us through it until we emotionally transitioned. She then acknowledged and celebrated this awakening with us.  Our time was packed full of delightful twists, turns and surprises, as we explored one layer of knowing after another.  It was indeed Magickal!  Thank you Dixie, for an ever-deepening, heart-felt and profound journey!  It was life changing for me!

Rev. Sheryl

I came to Dixie feeling personally and professionally uninspired as well as physically exhausted to the point where I wanted to lay on my couch 6 hours a day. And now, my energy is buoyant and my business is flourishing. I credit the combination of emotional, spiritual and physical work Dixie is gifted at marrying so magically. The last bit Dixie also helped me with was to find a balance between my business and family’s demands on my time. I can see a true integration emerging after a life-long push-pull. I am eternally grateful for having worked with Dixie!
