I LOVE guiding women's wellness retreats! Give your SELF a treat…and join us!

Paint the world with your body-loving feminine power…

discover YOU through Your Body Beloved program & retreats.

Women are daily bombarded with messages from the media that our bodies are not enough. Dispatches from the body itself remind us that hormones, illness, and stress are taking their toll on “women of a certain age.” Consequently, we are left feeling dissatisfied with the functionality and beauty of the bodies we will inhabit for the rest of our lives. Underneath this habitual physical fault-finding and its consequences on women’s self-esteem is a collective yearning to stop this heartbreaking cycle. It’s time to develop a more loving relationship with our own physicality.

The Female Body – all ages, shapes, and sizes – is the most exquisite manifestation of creative power on the planet. Period.

This is why Lynn Darnton, Caroline MacNeill Hall and Karin McDermott – well-respected executive coaches, leadership advisors, and teachers – created Your Body Beloved™, a program that transforms dissatisfaction and dis-ease into enduring love and gratitude. It’s a vital and audacious conviction… and it’s about time!

Your Body Beloved™ is a 4-month program, bookended by two weekend retreats, which will restore you to a loving relationship with your body. The program includes experiential learning in a community of peers, group coaching, reading and journaling exercises, breath and movement sessions, and homework assignments—nurturing practices all focused on deepening your love affair with you.

Body + Love = YourBodyBeloved

This Night.

I absolutely adore finding songs that instantaneously create a yearning-filled emotional reaction in my body upon hearing the first chord. Those are the songs where the first words out of my mouth (after I’ve sighed a heavy groaning) are “Oh my, I could guide to that!!” Such was the case when I heard “This Night” by Black Lab. It simply rocked me to my chakra-balanced core. Look at the album name…kinda sums it up…Passion Leaves A Trace. Umm…hello?! How could I not be pulled toward that?! A deeply liquid, beguiling and intensely beckoning call of a song, with a direct line from the pelvis to the soul. My Soultree heart & hips are aching to help women gyrate this dark undercurrent through their bodies! The ability to set myself free for 3 minutes and 29 seconds is a gift beyond any couch I’ve ever sat upon (that’s after a gratitude shout-out to my unbelievable therapist who has shifted and sustained my emotional journey for the last two decades). I could go on and on about what happens to the mind/body/soul when a woman surrenders to a dark room, no mirrors, a perfectly chosen playlist and a Guide leading her every move so her mind can give way her body. Perfection. Poetry in motion. Music as alchemy, movement as therapy. Yes! Bring it on…I’m ready to dance.
