If you’re overwhelmed right now — here’s what you need to know:

What This Is

A 5-Day retreat for 10 women, in person, on Vancouver Island, BC, where we will reclaim our value through radical self-acceptance and create space for your life vision. The early bird price is $2150 CAD if paid in full on or before May 8th. The regular price is $2750 CAD with customized payment plans available.

Why this is the perfect way to commit to thriving

This is a deeply nourishing circle for women to come back into balance and heal the parts of yourself that keep driving you into burnout. Because this shouldn’t be another year of living on the hamster wheel, or going along to get along. This can be the year YOU show up to your life, without apology.

Before women go on this journey with me, we hop on a call and every single one tells me the same thing: “I’m so tired.” 

And I ask them, what are you tired of? 

  • Not feeling heard, considered, or appreciated.
  • Holding everything together for everyone while being pulled in every direction. 
  • Having no support system and feeling alone.
  • Not being able to speak my truth without hurting or burdening others – or worse, being completely misunderstood and judged.
  • Keeping the peace and prioritizing everyone else’s comfort at the expense of my own.
  • Or, being ‘the one’ who disrupts the peace to end toxic family patterns (and get labelled an “inconvenient” pain in the ass as a result). 

It’s a lot.

These are strong-ass women carrying the world on their shoulders and they are TIRED AF! Soul-level tired. A bone-deep tired of the misuse and abuse of power. Tired of familial bullshit. Tired of not being able to speak their Truth. Tired of being The Only One, so much of the time.

If this speaks to your soul, maybe you are The One too.

The One who works on yourself to have the capacity to hold more (but who holds you?), more strength to help (who is your helper?), and more stamina to give (but when do you rest and receive?).

This retreat is about being held, helped and given permission to rest and receive the strength and wisdom from other women like you. Self-aware, intuitive, mindful, generous, spiritual (sometimes downright witchy) women who are also effing tired.

How did you get so tired? You ask yourself this all the time.

Real talk: Common themes in our circles include open-hearted empaths navigating tricky relationships (with mothers in particular) and healing from narcissistic abuse. 

Strong women are forged by a perfect storm of trauma, unexpressed emotions, fear of rejection or abandonment, and pervasive not-enoughness. And part of that perfect storm is knowing you’re on the planet to SERVE. When your open-hearted soul collides with trauma and the over-culture’s expectation that women give, give, give… it’s no wonder you exhaust yourself being The One to handle just about everything.

(Just because you can handle everything doesn’t mean you should.)

We are here to unravel that tangle so you can find wholeness in the WHOLE MESS.

To take 5 days to run away to a wooded island to do deep inner healing work with a circle of beautiful women

may seem scandalously indulgent

But it just might be the healthy re-set you need to live your life like you own it.

“When we worked together before, I only had space to work on not drowning. I will always be grateful for all the ways you helped me find my way to staying afloat.

I have expanded and healed so much since we last worked together and this process has led me to being able to start to see where I’m blocked and how much this has and continues to resonate through every part of my life. You speak to every place I can see I need help – and also to the space I increasingly see I’m able to step into to become.”


In this retreat, we will focus on reclaiming our Value and creating our Vision for the new year.

We will get raw and unfiltered together in a carefully held, co-created space where we can tell our Truths, accept each other unconditionally without judgment, and be 100% ourselves.

And from that place, we do the deep work.

Hi, I’m Keri-Anne Livingston, and if we haven’t met yet, I work with women to heal and love themselves on the deepest level, using trauma-informed somatic support, IFS and intuitive guidance.

I teach empaths, helpers and healers how to clear their inner path to walk their outer path with a reclaimed sense of wholeness in the WHOLE MESS of exploring and expressing their truth in absolute safety. 

Bless the mess and trust the process — this is how wholeness happens.

I can’t tell you exactly what to expect in this retreat since so much is customized to you and the other participants. But here’s what you will definitely experience:

    • Conversations that go deeper than any you’ve had before.
    • Feeling completely seen (and vulnerable) and accepted. 
    • Learning how to accept differences in opinions and beliefs with a deeper understanding of how to navigate your triggers with grace.
    • Safe space for real, raw expression with clear boundaries we design together beforehand.
    • The opportunity to acknowledge and heal the wounded parts you’ve buried so deep, it’s hard to dig them out on your own.
    • An embodied experience of true Sisterhood. One of the greatest gifts of this journey is that you don’t do it alone. Lifelong friendships have been formed from these retreats.

And, as you find more clarity about what is working, what isn’t, what you want to change, and what the self you want to step into looks like…

We’ll create a Vision of you.

This vision board will be your touchstone as you re-enter your life, giving you a compass to make decisions that shape the year to come.

Are you ready to create soul-level changes in your life?

“Your retreat fed me what my soul was starving for, and reinforced the importance of something I’d long forgotten, how to nourish myself so that I may nourish others. The way my life is unfolding is a domino effect of what your retreat offered me – an opportunity to be my whole self, in each moment, from now on. My life in this moment is delightful and curious, a playful practice in looking forward only far enough to trust my next step.”


The Details


  • This is an intimate group of just 10 women.
  • TWO private 60-minute Intuitive Coaching (valued at $997) one pre and post retreat.
  • 4 nights in a cozy home on Shawnigan Lake on Vancouver Island, British Columbia (check-in Thursday afternoon / check-out Monday midday);
  • All meals and snacks (organic & local wherever possible) with a customized check-in to ensure your dietary preferences are honoured;
  • Daily group coaching sessions, channeled healing practices and sacred ceremonies that connect you to your value and worth, clarify core beliefs and limiting obstacles, alignment with your inner resources and dynamic vision board to take home;
  • Fun, dynamic and trauma informed self discovery exercises with individual guidance and private access to Keri-Anne’s direct support throughout the weekend. AND WE GET TO BREAK SHIT!;

  • Free time every day to rest, recharge your energy and integrate your A-Ha’s between sessions in the many private spaces in and outside the house. Many retreat participants are self-identified introverts. We all need quiet time. We get it;
  • Topics explored include (but not limited to) releasing the past, reclaiming worthiness, self-acceptance, boundaries, self-expression, releasing limiting beliefs, healing the past, forgiveness, receiving, self-love, and manifesting the life of your dreams!
  • Also, there’s a hot tub for nighttime stargazing and a freshwater lake just steps away :).

I walked out of the retreat with a radical understanding of myself, my emotions, and my POWER. I learned I can be vulnerable. I learned I am worthy of being loved back.

I walked out with an understanding of what safety feels like, with 11 women who feel closer to family than friends. To say that this retreat changed my life seems trite and too small; this retreat changed ME, at a cellular level.


This is for you if…

  • Something needs to change, you’re at a crossroads and you want clarity around how to move forward.

  • You want to live your life, not just exist, or respond to the latest fire.

  • You don’t know where to start to free yourself from the tangled knots that have accumulated to create something new.

    • You’re asking the big questions like “Who am I now [after the latest upheaval]?”

    • You want to know who you are at the deepest level possible, so you can live, love, and lead unapologetically.

    • You know you don’t have all the answers (humility and humor are important components of this retreat).

Just so you know, if you attend, you’ll walk away…

  • Knowing your value and worth in your bones
  • Trusting yourself to know and choose what you need and want without guilt, explanation or apology
  • Embodying strong, healthy boundaries you assert, and maintain, with sovereignty and respect
  • Having the courage to speak up without the obligation to please anyone
  • Feeling conscious connection to your intuition, internal “captain and crew” and your new support system of sisters walking this path alongside you
  • Nursing sore stomach muscles from deep, healing belly laughs that are guaranteed to go down

Basically, if you’re ready to be the most BadAss version of yourself — this is it.

In these 5 days, we are laying a new foundation for you to:

  • Understand the mess you’re navigating more fully
  • Release unexpressed emotions around all you’ve been carrying or trying to hold together, so we can clear the clutter
  • Identify and articulate your values and priorities NOW (and reclaim your VALUE in the process)
  • Reconnect to your inner child and parts of you that want more say, so you can align every part of you into an unstoppable united front; and
  • Design clear boundaries about what you want and what you’re not willing to tolerate

The epiphanies, new understandings, and strength you’ll find are truly life-altering(in that they are the tools you need to alter your life to fit you perfectly).

    Schedule an Clarity Call with Keri-Anne

    Something inside of me said I could completely trust in the process. Through tears, laughter, anger, and SO many more emotions, this experience opened me up to a new sense of myself that has a lot less fear and moves through life OUT LOUD and ON PURPOSE. And that is something I don’t think I can ever thank Keri-Anne enough for ~ my life has well and truly been changed.”



    Thursday: Arrival & Opening Circle

    We typically arrive in the mid-afternoon and get settled. With all the lead up to the weekend, we begin with an opening circle to revisit intentions for yourself and each other to create the container in-person for safe and sacred exploration, expression and expansion!

    Friday: Anchor Your Value & audit core beliefs

    Gain clarity and connection as you explore and express what makes you, YOU! Together we’ll explore core values and beliefs that make or break you being the truest version of you possible, while you learn to appreciate and anchor into the gold you already are (without changing a thing).

    Saturday: Acknowledge & align your inner team and resources

    Identify and align your most powerful parts right alongside the disempowered “crew” members craving  more compassion and understanding for you to love your whole Self in an entirely new way.

    Sunday: affirm your vision & amplify your purpose

    Today, we CREATE and CELEBRATE! Design and declare a vision for yourself and the year ahead that amplifies your highest truth and Soul purpose in all areas of your life. A printer will be on hand with hands-on support to ensure your board is full of images, quotes & colours that honour your most authentic self!

    Monday: the Closing Circle (that fills your cells!)

    A peak experience for most retreaters is the powerful closing circle that honours yourself, what you learned, and celebrates who you are leaving this experience as (and with) in unbelievable support of those around you. Imagine a love-fest of laughter and tears like a booster shot for the soul, knowing you are no longer alone and never will be again. For real.

    I am a comedic speaker, emotional empowerment coach and Intuitive Healer who facilitates the exploration, expression, and expansion of Souls who came here to SERVE!

    It’s my greatest joy to free women in the understanding, release and full expression of their emotions to find wholeness in the whole mess so they can live, love and lead more daringly and get their gifts into the world with ease, confidence, and conviction.

    My side soul mission is to find the perfect GIF for every occasion, I make up words on the fly and often blurt out mantras like “Bless the Mess and Trust the Process” before I know they’ve left my face.

    What’s on the other side of the RADICAL self-expression?
    “Keri-Anne is a crone before her time. The connection she has with our earth and the spirit realm is deeply felt as she leads her meditations.

    She’s the real deal in a sea of bullshit.
