with Diane Ferguson and Tracey Owens in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida 

February 21-24, 2019

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?” – Marianne Williamson
This year our retreat focus is on “Daring To Be Authentically Empowered!” Why do we want to practice authenticity or empowerment? Perhaps you feel like you present two versions of yourself, one at home and one away from home. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to live a life without feeling like there is a disconnect between who you really are and who the world sees? 

In life, many of us are intentionally choosing to create authentic connections and add value to the our lives and those around us. When we do this, we are daring to be empowered! But are we also daring to be vulnerable and coachable? Are we also daring to practice self-renewal. If not, why? Maybe we don;t know where to start. 

Whether you are currently on an inward journey, wanting to take time to reflect, seeking spiritual expansion and growth, or simply wishing to engage in meaningful discussions about real life issues that matter along with other women in a safe, non-judgmental setting, “Almost Heaven” retreat could be for you!

During this retreat we will focus on:

  • Exploring the many ways “Daring To Be Empowered” can support us in all areas of our lives
  • Practicing acceptance and being grateful in the NOW
  • Trusting in the process of transformation
  • Releasing negative thought patterns and conditioning that holds us back
  • Guided journaling
  • Grounding and integration
  • Bathing in Universal Light and Love
  • Exploring various yoga practices and meditation
  • Balancing chakras
  • We will meditate together, explore together, laugh and cry together

* I am so thrilled that you are offering this retreat again this year. Last year was so amazing! It was truly a transformational weekend filled with beautiful releases, openings, deepening relationships and making new connections that will last forever.  – Kerry Whiteley

* Last year’s retreat was such an opening and healing time for me. I am so grateful for those women and their vulnerability, as well as their desire to share their own personal journey with us! Every part of it gave me a special gift that I carry with me still today. So much love to all of you who are attending!  – Ashley Livingston

“Peace is present right here and now, in ourselves and in everything we do and see. Every thought we produce, anything we say, any action we take, it bears our signature. Every breath we take, every step we take, can be filled with peace, joy, and serenity. The question is whether or not we are in touch with it. We need only to be awake, alive in the present moment. Nothing outside yourself can save you; nothing outside yourself can give you peace.  But this also means that nothing outside yourself can hurt you, or disturb your peace or upset you in anyway.”

Tracey Owens

Tracey Owens, Empowerment Catalyst and Spiritual Teacher, has her own unique perspective to living in a truly empowered, authentic way.

Tracey believes that transformation occurs through the conscious commitment of aligning how one thinks, speaks, feels, and acts.  Her services are a combination of Spiritual Counseling, Thought Transformation, and Energy Healing Work. This combination creates a welcoming environment for deep and lasting change to be brought forward and implemented.

Some of the issues she assists clients with include insecurity and low self-esteem, addiction and recovery, depression and stress, resolving and healing unconscious blocks to success, releasing automatic negative thoughts and emotions (including anger), improving physical health and overall vitality, reconnecting with personal power, and uncovering one’s calling, life purpose, or “mission.”

Her mission is to help her clients find their purpose, realize their dreams, and learn to live courageously.

Diane Ferguson

In 1996, Diane earned her Philosophy Degree from the University of Central Florida. Shortly after, in 1998, she took her first yoga class and fell in love with the movement, the principles, the introspection, and the way of life. As B.K.S Iyengar says, “Yoga is a light, which once lit, will never dim.” Over the next 15 years, Diane continued to practice various types of yoga – savoring different aspects of each style. Following her dharma, she graduated from URU’s inaugural 200-hour teacher training class in 2014. With a full heart, she embraces her journey an as an instructor, incorporating meditation, guided Savasana, readings, oils, and a sense of playfulness in her classes.

Diane credits her mom for introducing her to meditation. As a way to manage chronic migraines as a child, her mom started practicing guided meditation, self-hypsosis, and the Silva Mind Control Method with her daughter. Diane continues to practice these healing methods.

Within the last three years, Diane ‘officially’ began her education in energy work as a Reiki practitioner. Sharing her gift is one of her deepest passions. She loves to share the light and see people heal through the process.

Diane previously had her own business as a latent food allergy consultant specializing in autoimmune diseases, working in conjunction with Dr. Daniel Dantini. She also is a Certified Health Coach with special focus on holistic nutrition and natural supplements.

Diane lives in Gulf Breeze with her best friend and husband, Bill, their daughter Carmyn, 2 dogs, 1 cat, and 15 fish.
