Have you ever wondered how to live a peaceful life amidst the chaos around and within us? Have you ever longed to live a joy filled life in a world filled with fear? Has your desire to be creative and passionate every single day of your life been squashed by disappointments?

If you’ve said yes to any of those, John and Valerie have a few ideas to share with you! They have, over the last 20+ years taught hundreds of spiritual and personal growth courses and have a plethora of tools that can assist you in not only discovering, but LIVING from that peaceful, joyful, creative and passionate self that you ARE.

On this retreat you will gain perspectives that maybe you’ve never thought of before. You will discover that you do indeed have the power to live the life of your dreams. And, you will be inspired to make changes that you never thought you could before.

Through discussions, meditations, exercises and more John and Valerie will take you on a beautiful journey of truly discovering the Brilliance within YOU.
