Returning to Your Light

Retreats and Workshops for Therapists and Healers
 
 

Our Vision

retreat overview

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 quiet 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

a bit about us

Kim Lovejoy LICSW, SEP

retreat coordinator

breathwork facilitator

somatic experiencing session provider

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.

 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.

Who will benefit most from this Space?

This virtual retreat is for all healing professionals such as: therapists, counselors, coaches, body workers, nurses, social workers, energy workers, lightworkers and caregivers who are looking for an opportunity to release and restore after a long year in 2020. 

What is the Sacred Purpose of this Retreat?

This sacred space is a place where healers can come together for breathwork, ceremony, embodiment and healing. This will be an opportunity for the helping hearts of the world to remember their own wellbeing is priority when serving others. 2020 was a hard year for most of us and our physical bodies, hearts and minds have been extremely overworked and pushed to their limits. It is time to slow down and connect with our sacred self so we can reflect on what we have learned this past year, release what is no longer needed and heal and restore our energy. It is time to return to our light so we may shine brightly.

Our Vision and Hope

Our prayer for you is that you will find peace, rest, connection and love and know how truly supported you are. Self-love is the sacred medicine we all need as healing professionals. We can easily forget or set aside our own needs. When we are filled with love and our joy spills over, we can reach farther and be the Light this world needs now. We are sacred light.
