We became Social Workers because we believe in helping and serving people from all walks of life. After decades of working in very challenging jobs, we have learned how easy it can be to forget about our own needs as providers, caretakers, healers and Lightworkers.
We have a vision to bring healers together to create a space of quite contemplation, to hear the wisdom of our own hearts and the voice of the Divine Creator. Our retreats are an opportunity for like-minded people to remember our own well-being is a priority when serving others.
Our prayer is to have our participants feel peace, sacredness, love, joy and to know we are held in the larger healing community.
When we are filled with love, we can reach farther and be the Light this world needs.
With deep love and gratitude,
Christine Lord and Kim Lovejoy
Meet Our Team
Kim Lovejoy LICSW, SEP
I have a passion for exploring healing from a holistic approach. Through my own journey, I have experienced and learned about the deep needs and wisdom of our bodies, and how important it is to honor the mind, body, heart and soul connection in our healing work. My latest calling has been in cultivating ways to support other therapists and healers. I deeply believe that when we can be held and supported on our own journeys, we can show up in more authentic ways for the people we are caring for.

Christine Lord LICSW, SEP
I strongly hold compassion at the center of my work, knowing only love heals. I have a holistic approach that keeps us in the present moment by using mindfulness and somatic processing to connect with our mind, body and spirit. I love working with people to help them remember their own Sacred Wholeness! When we can open to possibility, curiosity and invite love in, life can be transformed! I enjoy helping people understand how to use their Sacred gifts, learn to trust the Great Mystery (and themselves!) and to support their unique Soul journey.

Maria Flom Massage Therapist
I have always had a natural calling to help and support others, and discovered that massage is a powerful path for me to achieve this. I value the importance of self care, and feel passionate about providing this for others. I love to create a personal experience for each of my clients, adjusting how I work based on what people are seeking each time they see me. I am excited to bring my skills and passion into a retreat setting, as I know the power of taking time for ourselves, and receiving what we need.

This retreat has been cultivated through deep love and intention for you. It will be hosted at the beautiful Christine Center in Willard, Wisconsin, where you are invited to stay in a cabin in the woods, enjoy healthy meals, warm up by a winter bonfire or in the sauna, and take naps at your leisure.
Sometimes we become out of balance in our work/ personal lives, and become depleted with the demands that we face on a daily basis, especially in the helping/ service professions. This will be an opportunity to remember that our own well-being is priority when serving others, and this will be time to have a weekend away where our only focus is ourselves. This retreat is for therapists and other healing professionals who are looking for a weekend of rest and rejuvenation. It will be a place for us to come together for quiet contemplation; a time to return to our own Light.
Our prayer is that you will find peace, sacredness, love and know how truly supported you are. Self-love is the sacred medicine we all need, and as healing professionals, we can forget or become out of balance with this. When we are filled with love, knowing we are the embodiment of love, we can reach farther and be the Light this world needs. This retreat will include a time to still the mind and rejuvenate the body. There will be options for gentle stretching/ yoga, dance, music, quiet reflection, community, and ceremony. There will also be an opportunity to sign-up for massage, and Reiki sessions, although times for these services will be limited, so let us know if you would like to secure a session!

Looking forward to supporting one another in deepening our self love, and returning to our Light!
