Who Am I?: A Retreat to Self @ Inner Alchemy

This gathering is a thoughtful combination of 3 transformational experiences wrapped in an all-day event.

Only when we remember who we truly are can we be certain of what we really want. Join us for a guided experience of self-realization and playfulness, as we gain clarity on our Soul’s journey.

Includes hypnosis, creative expression, energy healing, and more.

Using hypnosis we will be guided on a conscious experience of powerful reflection. We will explore an intuitive journey combining creative expression and our sixth sense. We will receive energetic healing as we are infused in sacred space and sound
for deep relaxation and mind/body integration.

Each participant will receive a written intuitive message from a certified psychic medium in their goody bag!
