General Overview

We can all agree that the last 2 years have been interesting to say the least! The way we have individually experienced life since the spring of 2020 has been unique in many ways but similar in others. This time period can be confusing and frustrating but it can also be uplifting and inspiring if we choose to look at it from a higher and larger perspective. 

 

So how can we relate, support and learn from each other in hopes of navigating the anticipated turbulence in 2022 as we move toward a more conscious world? By getting together and sharing our stories, feelings and energy in a safe, respectful and sacred space!

 

Over the next twelve months, Yvette Lehmann and Stephanie Banks, will be hosting monthly virtual gatherings, providing an opportunity for like minded individuals to come together and explore an array of spiritual concepts, tools and techniques that will enhance one’s personal spiritual journey. Each month we will focus on a different topic of conversation around spiritual and personal growth.

 

It is our desire to create a conscious community through our monthly sessions. Conscious Conversations is an opportunity to develop long lasting friendships and support for one another as we move forward together with grace and composure . Let's build our tribe and raise our flag that symbolizes love and compassion as we build a more inclusive and desirable world!

 

January Event

January is named after the Roman god Janus, new beginning, ending and transitions. The god of gates and doorways. The god of motion. When these metaphorical concepts are embraced they give rise to new opportunities, potentials and change. Janus presided over the beginning and ending of conflict so it seems fitting that our first session will focus on the idea of letting go in order to release that which we may be clinging to. Oftentimes these people, places and things that we are hanging onto would serve us best if we were to release them. Allowing for new opportunities to present themselves and energy to flow more easily and abundantly. 

 

This is truly the  time to embrace this concept and turn it into an action. To be your own god of motion and new beginnings. To open new doorways and to walk through them with courage, humility and integrity and we are here to support you as you do this.

As always, Yvette will lead us through an inspiring meditation to connect us with our deepest desires and Stephanie will share words of wisdom from spirit. We will offer specific tools and techniques for everyone to use to fully embrace letting go of what is not serving your best interests.

Join Stephanie and Yvette for our 1st meeting of 2022 and begin the year with clarity, confidence and courageousness!

 

“Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything - we cannot be free.”

― Thich Nhat Hanh,

Holy Shift Soulful Retreat

Finding harmony between the Mind, Body and Soul

Assisi, Italy

Date to be announced

Join Yvette Lehmann and Stephanie Banks for 8 days of pure bliss & serenity as we immerse ourselves in the majestic ancient town of Assisi, Italy.  As a UNESCO World Heritage site, Assisi, basks in this desirable status not only because of its shear beauty but also because its plethora of art and historically significant buildings, like the Basilica of Saint Francis.

 

As the birthplace of Saint Francis, Patron Saint of  the Environment as well as the Patron Saint of Italy, pilgrims have been traveling to Assisi since the 13th century but you don’t have to be religious to enjoy the magnificence of this picture perfect town lined with cobblestone and window boxes covering the stone walls of century old buildings dating back to 1000B.C.

 

Framed by the long, undulating hills of Umbria and the forests of Monte Subasio, Assisi is one of the best-preserved medieval towns in the world and one of Italy’s most enchanting gems.

 

Today Assisi is considered a global symbol of peace which is exactly why we have decided that it’s the best place to find balance between the mind, body and soul! 

Finding harmony within can be a challenge for us all so now is the time to say YES to finding serenity!! When inner peace is found, it can be called upon at any time. Let’s find it together and hold peace in our hearts for all our days to come!

Yvette started her journey with curiosity about life, consciousness, and spirituality. Practicing yoga gave her ways to connect the physical body and the psychological inner being. She believes that without the emotional and mental health there can never be true physical health. It is the balance of all, that brings one back to their natural state of completeness. She is trained and certified in iRest Yoga Nidra.

She applies the system to help and guide people suffering from trauma, grief, stress, anxiety, and addictions.  ​Her Classes, Workshops, Meditations and Yoga Alliance Certified Teacher Training programs integrate the wisdom of the traditional 8 limbs of Patanjali Yoga Sutras, the Upanishads and the scriptures of the Bhagavad Gita.Yvette weaves her 20 years of experience of all the different modalities into the physical yoga practice by helping the students understand better where the traumas are stored in the body and how to navigate themselves to where they want to be. Her workshops will guide the students to learn what tools will help release the traumas hidden in the body. She offers guided group meditations to help the students apply the tools to free the traumas. She gives one-on-one sessions to go deeper in discovering the root cause of the trauma from within.  Her heartfelt desire is to help all who seek to understand and know their true Selves other then the superficial ego self.Those who are looking for more can benefit from her Teacher Training programs, retreats, and intensive workshops.
