You’re Going Where!!??

You’re Going Where!!??



I know have posted it a lot on my “KBL” Facebook page, but I don’t think some of you know about this.  Next week, I am traveling to Rincon, Puerto Rico to be a guest hostess at a retreat. I know!!  Wow!!  How did this happen and how did I get this gig?  Well, let me tell you!

A beautiful, soul inspiring woman came into my life many months ago and she is the catalyst for making this journey happen for me.  I would like to introduce you to Jackie Knechtel. 

Jackie is a certified holistic health & lifestyle mentor who believes that the real fun happens outside of your comfort zone.   Jackie is a Master Manifestor and continually makes dreams into reality.  Believe me, I have seen this woman work her magic with other people – it’s amazing.  Jackie’s business/ website: Pure Vibrant Living is about living in the moment and radical spontaneity.  Join Jackie here: and   We are smoothie soul sisters and have so much in common.  We have spoken on the phone with each other and thru Facebook quite often.  Next week, I will get to meet her in person with hugs and kisses.  I am so excited for just that part of the trip. 

So, back to the story.  One night, Jackie and I were talking on the phone and she was telling me all about some friends of hers that were putting together this amazing retreat in Puerto Rico and had invited her to be a part of it.  OOOHH!  How wonderful!  I told her if she ever started doing more retreats and needed someone to fill a host spot, please keep me in mind.  A week or so later, Jackie contacted me saying that she spoke with her friends and they wanted to invite me to participate.  REALLY!!!???   I thought for a moment (fear popped in – I threw it to the other side of the room) and said “Hell, yeah!  Sign me up!”  

The retreat focuses on the Bodhi, Mind and Soul. It’s all about embracing and nurturing YOU.  Purifying your body, relaxing  your mind and indulging in the blessings bestowed upon you.  Along with Jackie, two other lovely women will be gracing their gifts and presence. 

* Fern Langham  – Fern is a certified yoga instructor and she will guide you through a yoga and meditation practice twice a day to find your center, balance, and inner bliss. She will guide you through a personalized yoga practice that you can easily take home with you for grounding, balance, and continue your spiritual growth. Learn more about Yoga with Fern and connect with her on Facebook and Twitter @surfyogarunlive.

Willa Kammerer –  Willa believes that the height of beauty is natural beauty, and is passionate about empowering others to live, create, and glow within and without.  Willa will also lead a special workshop on natural beauty and cosmetics, centering around ingredients we already have in our kitchen cabinets and fridges. For a sneak preview of the tastes to come, connect with Willa on Instagram @willakammerer.

I invite you to learn more about this amazing retreat that is being held from Thursday, Aug 29 thru Sunday, Sept 1st – 4 days/3 nights accommodation in a beautiful house perched amidst the tropical beauty of Rincón, Puerto Rico.  Embrace Retreats : Fall asleep to waves crashing and the sounds of the nature surrounding you. Wake to a morning yoga class and a fresh, healthy breakfast on the porch. Lounge on the beach, run, hike or wander amongst the rolling hills.  Drift through sun-filled afternoons as you reinvigorate your soul and revitalize you well being under the guidance of your hosts. 

Doesn’t that sound wonderful!  

There is still time to make reservations!!

I would love for you to join us.

I have to admit that I am a little nervous about this big journey.  I have never traveled alone before and only flown a few times in my life (as a child and back in 2001 with my husband, Scott).  This is a GREAT self-growth opportunity for me and for “stepping outside of my comfort zone”.  By doing this, it will help me grow, stretch, heal and blossom in ways that I wouldn’t have put myself into.   Thank you, Jackie for helping me break through my fears and embrace the possibilities of life beyond limits.  You are working your magic already!  I am EMBRACING MY Bodhi, Mind and Soul.   We ALL can do it!  If we just open ourselves to the possibility and opportunity of such growth in our lives. 

NEVER underestimate the value of positive thinking and positive change in your life.  When YOU are ready!  IT will happen! 

If I CAN DO IT, then by golly – YOU CAN TOO!

I will be posting this week.  However, due to traveling and teaching next week, I will be gone from the blog for about a week.  I will have MUCH to share with you when I return though.  So, in the meantime, I have great posts to share with you through out the week – so enjoy!

  1. Oh this sounds marvelous and I can’t think of a more deserving person to get this opportunity. Don’t be nervous, you will be fine and will look back and think, what was I so nervous about. Your going to come back refreshed, renewed and so full of inspiration for all of us. Can’t wait.

    • Thank you, victoria!! When I get nervous, I’ll pull you up in my mind and hear you say “It’s Ok dear! You can do this!” I look forward to sharing it all with you soon. xo
