October 13-18, 2022
About The Retreat
Explore your current perception of what is “WooWoo” and discover areas of your life where you desire to create a “WinWin.” You will bridge the intersection of the two which is where you find joy. This is where you thrive.

You understand outdated mindsets of separateness and disempowerment are disintegrating – because the old ways of existing in the world are dying and a new integration of spirituality and professionalism is at hand.

The energy you create when your words express your values impacts relationships and determines the balance in your life. Whether leading yourself or others, when you tap into the intuitive dimension of intelligence guiding your words, you realize that you can excel personally and professionally – and thrive!

Known as the “Joyful Shaman,” Lisa builds the bridge between tragedy and triumph in a surprisingly joyful way! As a plant medicine advocate, nurse, certified shamanic practitioner, and medium, she believes whole heartedly that attending to the inner spirit opens us up to our authentic nature and brings us joy personally and professionally.

A shaman is defined as one who sees in the dark. Lisa has seen her way through the darkest of times. Her life challenges were much like we are experiencing now during this global pandemic. Through decades of her sons’ cancer treatments, Lisa lived the experience of being quarantined, wearing masks, and fearing being infected by others. With more than forty years of experience in healthcare and spiritual transformation, Lisa weaves together insights from ancient wisdom and modern thought to inspire audiences with a powerful head to heart message using guided energy medicine, storytelling, writing prompts, dance, and humor. Her message is filled with first-hand insights on how, even in the midst of crisis, you can thrive.

DeAnna Lynette Carpenter
DeAnna Lynette Carpenter is a spiritual doula, sound conduit, and creator of She Who Builds – a platform and community dedicated to providing women with the resources to go confidently in the direction of their dreams and build the life they imagine. She lives for creating spaces and experiences for women and men to disconnect to reconnect and is on a mission to inspire healing, which she describes as “a remembrance of and returning to one’s Truest self.”
Through spiritual doulaship (individual and group coaching), domestic and international retreat facilitation, sound baths and healings, mindfulness and more, DeAnna is weaving a web that supports soul remembrance and expression. She brings creativity, appreciation for beauty and innocence, her love of people and the land, authenticity, grounding, compassion, perspective, curiosity, enthusiasm, ceremony, and wisdom to every space she encounters.
DeAnna is the author of two books: Lessons from the Fall and In My Solitude. In 2018, she released her first album, Tsunami. DeAnna is a certified Kundalini Yoga teacher and is currently working on her second musical offering, Come Inside.
DeAnna is magical. The first thing I said after having my first session with her is, “I have never felt so seen.” DeAnna holds space for you and only you. She does not interject with her own ideas of what she thinks you should do or be; instead, she holds up a mirror to help you remember who you are. I feel immensely supported by her and our conversations are so expansive. She will always be my spiritual doula.
“Every event that I have attended hosted by DeAnna has been so incredibly rewarding because of the space she holds and the intention that she sets. It’s always deep and powerful!”
When I first reached out to DeAnna to be my coach, I wasn’t logically sure what to expect – but my soul innately knew I was in for a powerful (and necessary) journey – and trusted DeAnna as my priestess. Our sessions are a divine combination of intuition, reflection, encouragement, and remembrance. If you know you’re on the verge of birthing the next level of yourself, DeAnna is the doula for you.
