About the Retreat

Learning the way of the heart and connecting to your heart consciousness to release separation, fear, false beliefs, and conditioning is the key to inner peace, health, and abundance. This is a whole new discovery of self and realization to the love and light that you are and the magic it brings to your life.

Participants will leave empowered open-hearted and filled with Faith Love and Trust for their Journey.

Your Host

I am the founder of LOLO Mind Body Soul. I am a Nutrition & Eating Psychology coach, Reiki Master, Yoga & Meditation Teacher, Spiritual Response Therapy Practitioner and certified in sound healing. I work with the whole person physically, energetically, and spiritually to regain health balance and harmony within. I hold a vibration of unconditional love and bring forth this vibration to help others feel safe and love on their healing journey. I am being called forth to illuminate and reflect the reality I know as truth to plant seeds within others to grow within the divinity of light I so gratefully nurture. I light way for them to feel the love that they are; star-seeds joining into a galaxy of illuminating light in the dark of the night.


“I can’t begin to articulate the depth of gratitude I have for the experience of working with this amazing person. The doors that were welded shut within me are so wide open and in some cases removed forever. The journey is amazing and handled with love, respect, and patience. Take a leap of faith and book an appointment, it’s transformed me in so many positive life changing ways. Forever grateful.”

– Diane S.
