New Year's Intuition, Creativity + Spiritual Awakening Retreat for Body, Mind, Heart & Spirit
SOLD OUT for 2018


"This is the best workshop I’ve been to in years! It was full of useful information, experiential activities and practical application. Not to mention a great group of women! Thank you Kim Chestney and the ladies of Green Heiress for such a great day!" ~ Wendy Borne, Visions Reiki

This year, make the resolution to live your inner truth! Join us for Pittsburgh's first annual, full-day retreat for awakening Intuition and igniting your spiritual evolution. The New Year is a time to embrace personal transformation, and reinforce our commitment to spiritual growth. Treat yourself to a day of immersive soul-work to start the year off right, and attune your spirit to actualize your highest potential.

  • Intuition is the innate connection to Higher Awareness (God) in all people
  • Living true to our inner guidance is the secret to Self-actualization and happiness
  • Each of us has our own unique language with our Higher-Self, and it is easy to learn it!

Intuition is the most important power within us all, and is, truly, the measure of our spiritual evolution. As we expand our consciousness, and grow in our inner radiance, we naturally attune to the magic and rhythm of life itself.

This full-day retreat includes a delicious vegetarian lunch, workshops, lectures, Qi Gong, Yin Yoga and meditations for folks of all ages. Please dress comfortably for light movement. We will supply mats and pillows, but feel free to bring your own, as well!
