Heavenly Connections Healers Retreat
Oct

to Nov 3

Heavenly Connections Healers Retreat

October 29 – November 3

Vibrant Living Retreat & Mountain View Massage

Hanmer Springs

In this time of Awakening, many of us are becoming aware of natural gifts and abilities that we never realised we had. We are being called to remember our mission as Lightworkers on this planet so that we may now step forward and do what we came here to do. 

You may experience this as a restlessness within yourself, feeling that there is something that you are supposed to be doing, but you are not quite sure what it is. You may have found that your life is no longer flowing with ease, or that your work or hobbies no longer bring you the joy and sense of fulfilment that they used to do. Your soul is longing for something more. 

Personal development books might have made their way into your life, and you might have started receiving messages from the Angels such as repeating numbers, feathers or seeing flashes of light out of the corner of your eye.

Some of you may be experiencing fear as these gifts awaken within you. This may be due to past lives where you have been unable to stand in your power, in the full expression of your gifts due to fear of judgement from others, and what that may mean for you.

However, this is a different time, and those past lives were preparation for this life, for the gifts and energies that we are now able to bring through in a time of greater acceptance, when the consciousness of the planet is ascending to a new level. 

If this event has made its way onto your computer screen, or you have wondered if your soul purpose in this life is to be a healer, then this could very well be the retreat that you have been waiting for.

This Healers Retreat incorporates two professional qualifications taught over a period of 5 nights and 6 days. During the 6 days you will experience cleansings and activations brought through from the Angelic Kingdom of Light, which will cause an increase in your energetic vibration, help you to let go of anything that no longer serves you and activate your natural gifts and abilities. You will be taught 6 different methods of healing, including self-healing, Angelic Reiki healing and Past Life Healing, and you will have many opportunites over the week to practise this hands on healing. You will also receive a comprehensive Practitioners manual and Master Crystal as part of the training.

This Retreat will be held at Vibrant Living Retreat in Hanmer Springs. It is required for all students to stay on site as it will be an integrative experience incorporating healthy eating and lifestyle, whilst activating the healing practises and gifts. Yoga classes will be available every morning for you to attend as you wish, and a wide variety of vegetarian food will be provided, with gluten free and dairy free options available. During the afternoons, you will have spare time for chatting, meditating, enjoying a stroll in the gardens at Vibrant Living Retreat or in the nearby forests, relaxing in the spa, visiting Hanmer Spring hot pools, or simply resting and integrating. 

The prices are listed below and vary depending on what kind of accommodation you select but all prices include:
- five nights accommodation
- breakfast and evening meals throughout your stay
- yoga classes every morning
- a complimentary vitality facial or full body massage
- unlimited use of the spa on site
- a day pass to Hanmer Springs hot pools
- two professional qualifications, which will then enable you to set up your own professional practise as an Angelic Reiki Practitioner and Past Life Healer.

INVESTMENT OPTIONS
$1895 – Twin room in the cottage – based on two people sharing a room with shared bathroom facilities - ONE BED AVAILABLE
$2095 – Double room in the cottage – price for one person with shared bathroom facilities - ONE BED AVAILABLE
$2145 – Twin room in the lodge suite – based on two people sharing with private bathroom - TWO BEDS AVAILABLE
$2295 – Twin room in the villa suite – based on two people sharing with private bathroom and outdoor spa bath. - ONE BED AVAILABLE

A deposit of $250 will be required to reserve your place on this Retreat, and places are limited to 8 people.

Even if you are not interested in becoming a Professional healer, this course will be very beneficial in supporting your own healing and spiritual journey. It may help to open up spiritual gifts or to reveal your life’s purpose. It is not necessary for you to have done any form of healing before attending this retreat, complete beginners are very welcome. 

Classes begin at 2pm on the afternoon of Sunday 29th October so there is plenty of time for travel and rest before the Retreat begins. The Retreat will finish on Friday 3rd November at 2pm.

October 21 – October 22

59 Paremata St, Atawhai, Nelson 7010, New Zealand

Are you working intuitively? Would you like to learn how to access your own and other peoples past lives? I am holding a Past Life Healing course in which i will be teaching you how to access and release past life energies from your friends, family, your pets and your own energy field.

This Past Life Healing course is a 2 day course and will include:-

- A full breakdown of the 7 major chakras, including the emotional and physical connection to each chakra and how this can be affected by past life trauma. 
- A full chakra clearing meditation and healing with the Angelic Realms
- How to connect with your Higher Self to receive guidance on your current life
- A group past life regression to allow you to experience one of your own past lives
- The benefits of Past Life Healing and how our past life experiences can affect our physical and emotional bodies and our relationships today
- How to access the past lives of others so that you may release any physical weakness in their body, fears, emotions or limiting beliefs connected with that lifetime
- How to clear any negative karmic connections between yourself and other people in your life, resulting from past life experiences, and how to use this process to heal your own relationships and that of others
- Practical exercises in giving and receiving past life healings
- A Manual and Certificate

This course has been accredited with the International Practitioners of Holistic Medicine so once you have completed this course you will be able to advertise yourself as a Past Life Healing Practitioner.

However, even if you are not interested in offering Past Life Healing as a therapy, this course will be very beneficial as part of your own healing journey, as it will give you the opportunity to explore and clear several of your own past lives.

TESTIMONIALS
This is what some of my other students had to say about this course:-

I've just completed the Past Life Healing Course with Rebecca and found it amazing!! The Course is thorough, covering all aspects of healing the things which hold us back in this life, be it physical, emotional or spiritual. The Course is accredited which means I will be a registered Past Life Healing Practitioner and look forward to using this alongside Reiki treatments. Rebecca is a truly inspiring lady who I feel privileged to have as a friend, Teacher and spiritual sister. I highly recommend her as a Therapist and Teacher - Jacqueline Chidgey

I had such a fantastic experience with Rebecca, both with a past life regression and later with a past life healing course. As a registered nurse and reiki practitioner I found the course physiologically and emotionally accurate. She was professional, helpful, caring and compassionate. I felt totally confident in her abilities as a teacher and found her to be knowledgable and insightful in her teachings. I thoroughly enjoyed both my healing session and my subsequent training and would highly recommend Rebecca to anyone. Her professional, friendly and down to earth character make her easy to relate to and her teaching is clear and concise. Very highly recommended! - Helen Wright

I have just completed the Past Life Healing Course with Rebecca and what a fantastic course. The course covered both theory and practical aspects and was taught in a friendly, relaxed and professional manner. With the course being accredited therefore allowing me to be registered as a PLH practitioner. I highly recommend Rebecca for any therapies and courses, she is passionate about everything she does. Thank you again for a fantastic course. Bring on the next one - Emma Thompson

Please join us for a gentle and relaxing afternoon of indulgence.

Make Everyday Magic

Make Everyday Magic

Over the last 22 years of recovering from huge sudden trauma, I’ve had to learn how to recreate my own happiness from what I thought was the death of my life’s dream. I have had to really embrace the truth that we create our own happiness – it doesn’t come from anything external, but life is offering opportunities for joy constantly to us if we can shift our perception to see them. 

Now, I’m happier than I’ve ever been and able to embrace life with my whole heart. I’ve got so much to share with you, tools for balance and embodiment of who you really are, tools for healing, tools for manifesting what you want – a perspective of the meaning of life that has brought a deep contentment to my souls’ adventure being me.

The journey led me to discover what truly heals us from our unconscious blocks, belief systems and held emotional energy that gets stored in our bodies. Part of our work will include a group healing session that will show you how our consciousness is connected to our physical health. You’ll leave feeling more balanced and empowered to work with your own body’s innate inner healer, and understanding how to embody who you already are. . 

If you feel called to experience more joy in your own soul’s adventure of being you, to have the peace inside that this world is craving, come join us for a weekend of deliciousness and deep journeying together. I promise to share everything I possibly can that has helped me, and help you to identify what will work best for you. 

The investment for the weekend is a one time only special introductory offer of $150. A non-refundable deposit of $30 will secure your place. It is open to any woman who feels the calling to be there. I can’t wait to meet you and delve into some juicy time together!

Your Beyond The Clouds Yoga Journey
Sep

to Oct 8

Your Beyond The Clouds Yoga Journey

Trip dates: 29th September - 8th October 2017 (please ignore times)
Your teacher:  Kathy Valler

Your Beyond The Clouds Yoga Journey: Spend your first night in the picturesque Paro Valley at a 5-star boutique hotel. Built in traditional Bhutanese-style this resort is located on the edge of a beautiful forest. Wake up to breathtaking views of Himalayan peaks in your deluxe villa. The spacious wood- clad yoga studio looks out on one of Bhutan’s highest mountains, inspiring daily yoga practice.

We travel onwards to Thimpu, the only capital city in the world without traffic lights! Spend two nights in our hand-picked hotel with excellent spa facilities and explore this fascinating little city. Attend the colourful and dramatic Thimpu Festival.
We continue our journey via the scenic Dochu La Pass to Punakha which served as Bhutan’s capital for 300 years. Walk to Chimi Lhakhang Monastery, one of the most revered temples in Bhutan, before reaching the magnificent Punakha Dzong, an ancient monastery built in 1637. Situated on the confluence of two rivers, this is arguably the most beautiful dzong in Bhutan. A short distance from Punakha, we spend a night at a relaxing resort.

Spend two nights in a traditional Bhutanese farmhouse in the picturesque Haa Valley. After crossing the Cheli La Pass at 3,810 metres, explore the wonderful countryside, relax, and attend your yoga sessions at this stunning off the beaten track location.
Returning to Paro, watch a traditional Bhutanese archery match, and visit Paro Market. Before leaving Bhutan, you will visit Taktshang Monastery (Tiger’s Nest), Bhutan’s most famous landmark. A hike up through blue pines, passing water-powered prayer wheels, leads you to this most holy site. This ancient monastery clings miraculously to a sheer cliff, rising 1,000 metres from the valley floor. The views are magnificent over the Paro Valley and the only sounds to be heard are prayer flags blowing in the wind. Do it, come with me.
