Overview

Join us for a fresh start to 2021 on a wellness retreat in Roatán, a gorgeous Caribbean island about 40 miles off the northern coast of Honduras. After all the anxiety and fear that 2020 produced, and the normal holiday over-indulgences, it’s the perfect way to rejuvenate our minds, bodies and spirits to prepare for an exciting new year. I’m thrilled to be hosting this trip along with two close friends, Krista Stanley and Heide Shilstone, two of the best people you’ll ever meet and exceptional talents in unique wellness and spiritual modalities. (Their bio’s are below).

The secret art of inviting happiness

The miraculous medicine of all diseases

Just for today, do not anger

Do not worry and be filled with gratitude

Devote yourself to your work. Be kind to people.

Every morning and evening, join your hands in prayer.

Pray these words to your heart

and chant these words with your mouth.

– Reiki Founder Mikao Usui

Highlights:

  • We’re taking over The Beach House Hotel, a beautiful, 4-Star oasis situated directly on Half-Moon Bay.
  • Meeting Members of the Garifuna Tribe
  • Yoga and Meditation Daily
  • Snorkel through a ship-wreck and swim with sea turtles
  • Healthy, delicious food each day
  • Relax on the beach and swim in clear, clean, crystal blue waters
  • Swim with wild Dolphins or horseback ride on the beach
  • Taste Machuca, a classic Honduran soup
  • Relax fully with a Reiki session
  • Taste and make your own local chocolate
  • Try a new spiritual modality to open-up your mind

Our extended weekend will focus on detoxing our minds, bodies and spirits as we learn more about ourselves. We will focus heavily on gratitude and will stretch our bodies as we stretch our minds.

If you’re worried about going to Honduras, don’t be. Roatán is a world unto itself without the political and poverty issues of the mainland. Roatán is one of the bay islands surrounded by the second largest reef system in the world. Snorkel directly out from our hotel’s bay through one of the most species-rich waters in the Caribbean in terms of both coral and fish …. aka dive and snorkel heaven!

Heide Shilstone, Reiki Master

Heide Shilstone is a Reiki Master, a certified past life regressionist, an Emotion Code practitioner and an ordained minister of the Universal Life Church. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.” Heide first became interested in energy healing over twenty years ago when she experienced a transformative past life regression during an energy healing session. Heide found herself drawn to holistic healing and studied Reiki with nationally known Reiki master and author Brett Bevell of the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY. Heide received her training in past life regression hypnosis from one of the early practitioners in the field, Saundra Blum, of Los Angeles, CA. Heide is also a certified practitioner of The Emotion Code system created by Dr. Bradley Nelson whereby she helps her clients release trapped emotions.

Heide customizes her energetic healing sessions depending on the needs of her clients. She finds that a common thread in all of her healing modalities is the ability to release energetic blocks and trapped emotions that are keeping her clients from achieving their best lives. Heide has helped clients of all ages deal with depression, anxiety, grief, anger, sadness, relationship issues, social anxiety, addictions and PTSD. Many people find relief from long standing physical ailments as well. For more information please go to shilstonehealing.com.

Karyn and Chuck, owners of The Beach House in Roatán, are former New Yorker’s who lived typical busy type-A lives in the city while dreaming of retiring “one day” to the Caribbean. When they purchased the hotel three years ago, they decided to not to wait for retirement and they made the jump. Both are big environmentalists and dive enthusiasts and relish creating bespoke and personal experiences for their guests.

Julie Cook, Yoga Instructor

The yoga is warm, the instructor is experienced, and the setting is simply blissful. Julie Cook, founder and creator of a very successful yoga studio back in the US, is now living her dream life on the island of Roatan with her husband. Through her yoga, she ensures that everyone feels connected and confident while sharing her knowledge, inspiring, and igniting your spirit through guided movement and breath work. Various forms of this ancient practice will be offered each morning to be followed by a guided meditation. Each class is customized to the bodies and experience in the room, or in this case on the dock.
