Inspired Living with Coach Mo – Soul Power Retreat Audio Testimonial
Sinking your body into the warm, healing water of the hot pools….your body relaxes and the gentle evening breeze carries a slight smokey aroma across your face, traces of campfire lingering.
A warm vapoury mist floats past you creating a mystic maze around the women who surround you, the warmth of the water relaxing you to your very core.
Floating lazily you feel your heart expand as a powerful energy seems to surge from deep within the water, up through your body, extending all the way up to the darkening sky above. You’ve never felt so grounded, so certain and connected to YOU.
Your gaze is pulled upward as a greenish light dances in the sky above connecting you to the breathtaking phenomena of the Aurora Borealis.
You trace the path that you’ve made over the past few days in this ancient mineral springs, vibrant forest and edge-of-wilderness setting — the energy sources that fuel the heart and soul of all that Takhini is.
A strange feeling emerges, a sense that you’ve been here before…..long ago.
When I got back to work this week, my colleagues thought I had some sort of makeover or something. It was pretty funny (I hadn’t done anything other than place my hair elastic in a different place) and kind of flattering.
I had just returned from helping out at the women’s Soul Power retreat in Takhini Hotpools. (Thank you Maureen Caley Verdonk for orchestrating this opportunity)
It was relaxing, rejuvenating and inspiring to spend time with other like minded souls who were willing to put themselves first for a weekend. Away from the less-than-cheerful news of the world and overstimulation from electronics and every day demands, truly felt like I was in another place.
I haven’t felt this soulfully inspired since Awesomenessfest a couple of years ago. Despite what is going on in my life, I have learned that I need this type of inspiration and connection every few years to keep me and my dreams going for the long run.
I absolutely encourage you to treat yourself, do something totally different and a little bit out of your comfort zone. Find an inspirational outlet for your spirit, emotions and pent up joy. I highly recommend the retreat.
You have the confidence to be honest with yourself. Saying YES to you and no to others – guilt free.
You’ll have more energy, be more productive with less effort while having more fun!
You amplify your ability to ask for and accept help from others without feeling indebted to them.
And since you understand that building a compassionate relationship with yourself is the foundation to supporting others at the level you know you are capable of…
You’ll walk your talk…making time for nourishing your own soul care as you expand your capacity to deepen your connection and hear the whisperings of your inner wisdom and distinguish between your ego (aka inner critic) and your true voice.
For thousands of years, Indigenous people lived and travelled this territory, located on the traditional territory of the Ta’an Kwach’an Council and have taught us to have an inherent respect and a strong spiritual connection to the land, nature, animals and plants.
We thrive and connect more deeply with ourselves as we connect to the natural world when we have a balanced relationship with these forces.
Now you will have the opportunity to step into this power under the guidance of Mo Caley-Verdonk who has been dedicated to soul care and a deep inner connection for the better part of this decade.
Takhini Hot Springs is set in a majestic landscape in Canada’s beautiful Yukon Territory. It’s natural surrounding is a university for our soul and there’s no better “power spot” than Takhini “the jewel of the north” to touch your heart and soul and ripple out into the lives of your families, your communities and your workplaces for years to come.
The ancient mineral springs, vibrant forest and plentiful wildlife are considered the energy sources that fuel the heart and soul of all that Takhini is and why we have chosen this destination.
You can source the infinite energy found at Takhini to naturally refuel your own energy and manifest your intent…without you having to work hard!
Something special happens when women get together, combine this with retreating to one of the most beautiful and special places on earth, it becomes magical.
So whether you’re new to transformational retreats or you’re craving a sacred pause, what’s possible at Takhini will astound and delight you.
Tranquility. Positive emotions. Confidence. Down time.
TUNE IN to what makes you strong.
TAP INTO what makes you different.
TURN ON your power.
TAKE BACK yourself.
You’ll wind your way over a country road and nestle in at the cozy wilderness lodging.
Once settled, you’ll join our sacred sisterhood for scrumptious hors oeuvres while we meet and greet each other to kick off our transformative weekend.
Then we’ll make our way out to the powerful fire ceremony where we’ll light our intent for the weekend and release any doubts about confidently going for your life like never before.
From here wander over and sink into the healing waters of the hot pools before nestling into slumber.
By day we’ll enjoy a gentle awakening of your body, mind and spirit! We’ll ground our energy with a guided meditation before eating a scrumptious breakfast.
Following breakfast, you’ll learn some of my ninja strategies for saying YES to you while going for the life of your dreams, so you’ll have an easy formula to follow when you get home.
We’ll be off for mellow hikes in the tranquil landscape of the woods giving plenty of opportunity to reconnect to our natural, healthier, grounded selves.
As we stop to “smell the roses” we’ll activate special nature meditations and you’ll have plenty of time to rejuvenate. Time to nurture YOU! We know how much you give to others.
Afternoon is You time…There is plenty of time to take a sacred pause, walk the wilderness trails, visit the nearby Yukon Wildlife Preserve or find a nook or cranny that is carved out just for you – to be alone, to journal, to stop and smell the roses.
Evenings, after a gourmet dinner we’ll wander over to the campfire for sharing circle before soaking in the healing mineral waters of the hot pools.
No! The food at the retreat is not just roasted hotdogs and marshmallows but rather a mix of fresh local produce and ingredients prepared perfectly to make your mouth water!
So whether you’re hankering for a cup of freshly brewed coffee ( from locally roasted beans) or a bowl of fruit and yogurt sprinkled with toasted nuts or in the mood for grilled burgers and crisp salad or fries — you’ll be savouring delicious food.
Problems with what you can eat…Gluten free? Vegan? Can’t do dairy? Don’t worry, our gourmet menu will have plenty of options for you.
Prepare to have some fun with a special cook off challenge! Show off your talents…and of course, I’ll reveal how to tap into the energetic qualities of preparing devoted meals!
Meals will be served family-style in the homey kitchen, on the deck at picnic tables or around the campfire.
Located just 28 km from downtown Whitehorse, Yukon’s capital city, Takhini Hot Springs Campground & Hostel offers you (well almost) traditional camping back-to-nature, edge of wilderness experience featuring dorm-style rooms with comfy bunk beds and pillows (with only 2 to a room, there’ll be no “fighting” over who gets the top!), shared washrooms, coin-operated showers, spacious kitchen and common area, wonderful sun-room and adjoining deck.
This venue offers a retreat of peace, adventure and freedom in the edge of the wilderness.
Taking your first deep breath of the crisp Northern air, you look around you, standing still, feeling a sense of calm envelop you, you realize that YOU HAVE ARRIVED.
Indulge yourself in the tranquility of the wilderness, the healing warmth of the hot pools, a massage, the gourmet menu, the sacred sisterhood and the simplicity of life.
This weekend, you promise to simplify, pause and be present to the surprises that are in store for you.
Nature is like a university for our soul and there’s no better “power spot” than Takhini “the jewel of the north” to touch your heart and soul and ripple out into the lives of your families, your communities and your workplaces for years to come.
You are so glad you have taken this opportunity – so much in life can take priority.
You will return home feeling more alive, more productive, less stressed and ready to take on the change you’ve been craving.
We’ll use a special parting ceremony to activate the power of our word to commit to taking 3 actions to saying YES to YOU with confidence.
That “wall” that has been keeping you stuck has been gently released and you’ll have specific strategies to tap into and use time and again when you feel stuck.
You’ll feel confident that you are living the life of your dreams and have what it takes to face whatever comes your way, knowing that you have your own back.
You’ll know how to deal with your life in a calmer, more centered place that you can return to time and time again!
You’ll have re-discovered what brings you pleasure and joy. You’ll have your custom crafted self-care plan handy to help ensure you continue to enjoy living a vibrant life.
You’ll leave feeling deliciously connected to your deepest inner wisdom and juiced up to go for your life like never before.
As with all of our events, we will create a sacred, restorative space for sharing and practicing exceptional self care.
Do Too Much – You’re ambitious, have a very full life, have many demands and like to get things done, always doing so much – and you’re TIRED and READY FOR A BREAK and you don’t know when you’ll get it!
Plan Too Much – You always have to-do lists, like to be in control and have difficulty letting go. You’re READY TO LET GO and LET US DO THE PLANNING FOR YOU!
Give Too Much – You are a generous, caring, and hardworking woman who always puts others you love first – family, work, careers, community, responsibilities, but WHAT ABOUT YOU? You know that you should be putting you first but the guilt would be too draining.
Are Questioning your Life Purpose – You know you are ready to take your life to the next level, only your light has faded and you want to ignite that spark of passion and love for life again. You know you’re at a crossroads and need a breakthrough right now and are ready to step out and claim it.
Are Dreaming of Time JUST FOR YOU! – You’ve been trying to figure out how to fit some YOU time in.
It’ll happen when _(fill in the blank)____________.

To be clear, this is not a passive experience! This is a 3-day immersion experience that is designed to take you and your life to the next level (whatever that is for you) and to give you the clarity to make it so.

This became even more of a passion for Mo in 2014 she had what she calls a “breakthrough” that left her initially feeling exhausted and confused. She’d been a self-care activist and teacher for years and here she was…depleted, resentful and feeling burned up! She thought she’d been doing all the “right things.” This led to her embarking on a deeper dive into her personal journey and learned that what was missing was “her” and by being truly honest with herself and tapping into her heart about what was really important to her she figured that out and wants to share this with you!
