A weekend of connection, insight & embodiment with
special guest, Natalie Reimer Anderson
October 2024 (weekend TBA)
Friday 7:00pm ~ Sunday 4:00pm
Kaleida, MB 

"I've found a part of myself I've been neglecting, in this very special place, tucked amongst the fields near the Pembina Valley. The many layers of healing we penetrated with the rich modalities that were shared with us will forever change and connect us from this unique retreat. It’s one of the most beautiful things I have ever done." ~ ShameShifter, October 2023

Join us for an intimate weekend retreat designed to explore the connection between your stored shame stories, your nervous system, and your power to manifest.

Gain insight into the places where you feel stuck physically and mentally, and explore practices to both recognize and release these patterns.

Make supportive connections with other women who are working on this too.

It's Joy's pleasure to co-create this retreat a second time with special guest, Spiritual Coach and Guide, Natalie Reimer Anderson, who shares her process of “Shame Shifting” to recognize and release the density of stored shame in our bodies and create space for greater manifestation with simple practices and tips including guiding you through a powerful cacao and fire circle ceremony to open your heart, release old patterns and make way for the new. 

"A truly enlightening experience! Joy and Natalie provide an environment in this retreat that will be beyond your expectations. A place where a group of women can gather and share in an open and non-judgmental way. Profoundly spiritual retreat, providing skills to overcome personal adversities and to discover yourself in ways that can elevate your life" ~ ShameShifter, Oct 2023

Guest Feedback

"The food was delicious, nourishing and filled with options. I appreciated that there were always snacks (and coffee!) available."

"I really appreciated the home cooked meals, and the dairy and gluten-free accommodations."

"The sauna was sooo wonderful to unwind in. I appreciate the balance of rich content and space to digest it all.'

"From the moment I read the words “Shame-shifting” I knew this retreat was for me. What I didn’t know was how sweetly and expertly I would be held along the journey. The House at Kaleida is the absolute perfect spot for souls to meet land and sky. The nourishment was divine! Joy and Natalie were world class hosts and facilitators. I’m already looking toward the next opportunity to retreat to Kaleida."
