All retreats will start with a phone consultation before the retreat with Dr. Traci Moreno, PsyD, psychologist and owner of Free Spirit. During the consultation Dr. Traci will collaborate with you to identify your reasons for wanting to participate and the primary issues you’re wanting to address during the retreat, establish goals of what you hope to accomplish, assess your needs and develop your individual retreat program. Your can choose the activities you want or use the activities recommended to you by Dr. Traci. This is your retreat! You’re in control of your own experience!
Activities can include:
by Dr. Traci, licensed psychologist using such treatment interventions such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Grief Counseling, psychoanalysis, existentialism. Solution Focused Therapy. Interventions will be selected by Dr. Moreno based on your needs. The purpose of therapy can can be to address symptoms of depression and anxiety; past trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder; grief and loss; poor self-esteem, confidence and self-efficacy; problems with relationships (family, children, spouse/partner, friends, coworkers, etc...) and any other issues in life causing you distress.
Learn how to quiet the mind and connect with your body and spirit. In this activity you will engage all of your senses and be transported on a journey of visual imagery for the purpose of self exploration. Guided meditation can be used to calm us down and manage our symptoms; identify our emotions; strengthen the mind body connection and listen to what our body is trying to tell us; connect to our higher self and answer questions we’re having difficulty answering; find peace within us; and more.
Every action has a reaction. Thoughts lead to behavior so in order to change our behavior we must change our thought pattern. We can do this by setting intentions within us so that we can live with everyday with purpose. Intention setting is not just an internal process, we must ask for help and guidance from the universe, our angels, spirit guides, higher self and higher power. Then we symbolically materialize this intention as a way to remember this moment when life gets difficult and we lose our way. This involves something you can keep and take with you such as a crystal, stones, candle or your own smudging spray that you can make yourself.
This is unlike any traditional yoga class! The mental, emotional, spiritual and physical benefits of yoga are now widely known. Now multiply those benefits times 10 with a private 1 on 1 yoga session outdoors in our beautiful and serene Zen garden. Sessions can take place any time but are ideal at sunrise or sunset as our mini donkeys, Faith and Grace, look on and enjoy the tranquility right along with you. Our yoga sessions are taught by a certified yoga instructor who also has a great deal of experience working with people struggling emotionally with symptoms such as anxiety, depression, trauma, anger and grief. Sessions can include guided meditation and sound healing.
This is a new twist to our already amped up yoga class. Under the watchful eyes of only the moon and the stars and our dimly lit lanterns and fairy lights in the trees... Feel the Movements.
Feel the Freedom. When our eyes are closed all of our other senses (especially our 6th sense) open. It's as if you're dancing with no one watching. No worries. No judgement. If you're lucky you'll hear the coyotes howling in the not so distant distance as you work 1-on-1 with our uber experienced registered yoga instructor.
We’ve created an edgy, new holistic treatment we're calling "Mindful Movement." Depression anxiety, trauma, stress and other emotional pain is held within the body. This is where our registered yoga instructor comes in. She conducts one-on-one sessions designed to teach you how to sit with uncomfortable emotions and appropriately move and release them through mindfulness, grounding exercises, breathing techniques, guided meditation, and yoga. Mindful Movement can be used for many purposes such as:
Learn how to feel your emotions, process it and move it through the body. Knowing how to do this helps us be less scared of our emotions so that we can allow ourselves to feel and deal with distress as it happens, which helps prevent harmful defense mechanisms such as avoidance, denial and repression.
If you're on your own spiritual journey of self discovery these sessions can help you connect to your higher self and to the universe, strengthen your intuition and expand upon your spiritual growth.
Fitness! We can give these sessions an energy booster customized to your level of fitness. Lose weight and tighten your body all while fortifying your emotional, mental and spiritual wellness. What could be better than that?
If you're feeling lost, trying to find purpose in life, wanting answers to life, needing to make a major decision or just needing a "reset" this is for you! Spiritual coaching is a perfect compliment to individual, couples and family coaching. Most astrological readings tell us what we already know about ourselves. Most psychic readings tell us things that may or may not ever happen in the future or information that can't be proven. Protect yourself from negativity, balance your energy chakras and learn about your own personal obstacles in life and how to overcome them. The possibilities of what these sessions can help you with are limitless! In this session, we will open the space for your soul to reveal and communicate the answers you need for a breakthrough in your life. We will do this by diving deep into the wisdom and guidance of your higher self, your angels, your energy and your natal chart. You will leave this session with your birth chart and what we call a “prescription” or tangible actions you can take to elevate your life to the next level. We use an integrative approach that includes Astrology, Angel Cards & Auric Energy.
This energy healing treatment works on the whole body, mind and spirit. Lay back and relax as our Reiki Master transmits healing vibrations through their hands to your body. There is usually no physical touch between the Reiki practitioner and your body. Although you may still feel the energy moving and flowing through your body. Everyone’s experience is different except for one aspect- by the end of the session you may not know what actually happened but you’ll know for sure that something happened! Reiki has been scientifically proven to relieve stress and pain, induce relaxation, release emotional blockages, accelerate natural healing, balance subtle bodies energies and support other medical modalities including traditional therapies. Reiki is quickly gaining acknowledgment and respect in the medical community as a recommended treatment option. Try it, experience it for yourself and see what everyone’s talking about!
When our chakras are not balanced either are we. Our chakras consist of wheels of rotating energy that can influence or respond to all the different areas of our life including our physical, emotional, mental, intellectual and spiritual wellbeing. An imbalance or blockage can cause us problems in these areas. Balancing our chakras can correct these problems. You’ll also be taught how to balance your chakras on your own to stay well.
Cleanse your body from impurities by sitting in our dry sauna. Dry saunas are proven to provide stress relief, relaxation and to promote health benefits.
This is a way to symbolically get rid of things in our life that no longer serve us. This could include people, situations, places, etc... You’ll be able to talk about and process the pain it has caused you, why you want to free yourself from from it and how your life will change by making peace with it and releasing it physically and emotionally. You also have the option to bring personal items to burn if you’d like. People have brought all kinds of items from journals to pictures to even a wedding dress!
This ancient symbol is used to help us reflect upon, accept, release, and manifest certain aspects of our life. The four quadrants can represent whatever you want them to such as stages of life (birth, youth, adulthood, death); human aspects (spiritual, emotional, intellectual, physical); or elements of nature (fire, air, water, and earth). The center of the wheel represents your higher self. We will assign what the quadrants represent based on what you need to work through. You’ll start by standing in the center and grounding and connecting to your higher self and the universe. One at time you’ll step into each quadrant, sit and journal about the role it has in your life. Some people discover problems in their life they didn’t realize had such an impact on them; some find the strength to forgive; and some find the courage to hope. It’s all up to you.
In these sessions you’ll allow our mini donkeys to become your therapist. Mini donkeys, like horses, can be an emotional mirror for us. They respond to what we’re feeling. They are sensitive and intuitive. They feel our energy and respond to it. In partnership with our mini donkeys, our equine coach will facilitate activities for you that help develop the skills you need such as communicating effectively; building trust, self-esteem and confidence; setting boundaries; being more patient, tolerant and compassionate; and many many more! Activities may include anything from grooming, leading, groundwork and horsemanship and other customized activities with our mini donkeys. By learning how equines learn, react, and follow instructions from you, you’ll be able to gain a better understanding of your own emotions, behaviors, and body language.
Crystals and Candles

All crystals and stones carry a specific energy that can bring us everything from physical, mental, emotional and spiritual positivity to protecting us from negativity.

Similarly, candle colors also bring about different energies. Discover candle magic, it’s used and benefits.

Design your very own mala bracelet. Mamas consist of 108 beads that assist with focus and concentration and can be used for meditation. Traditionally, you would recite a mantra in your head as you go through and touch each bead. It can also be worn so that you can channel and manifest your specific intention. Before you begin, we’ll guide you through a brief ceremony where you’ll set an intention for your mala. As you add each bead you’ll bring your intention into your mind solidifying it’s purpose. Materials of your choice will be chosen before the retreat and will be an additional cost, as materials vary widely in meaning and cost.
With hope in your heart you can create your own prayer flag. Prayer flags are a Buddhist tradition. Design your flag with a mantra or prayer, hang it in our Zen garden. Feel your prayer and it’s energy intensifying with every wave of the wind. It’s believed that the wind spreads your prayer all over the world.
Make your own smudging spray. Smudging is a way to cleanse your surroundings and your energy. Smudging can be for just about any purpose such as protection, love, healing, health, abundance, energy, stress, mood, and more... Before you begin, we’ll guide you through a brief ceremony where you’ll set an intention for your spray. As you blend the ingredients including essential oils you’ll keep that intention in your mind. Smudging is done by spraying yourself around the head and body whenever you feel the need. This could be before leaving the house or when you return home, when you feel out of sorts or when you’re wanting to manifest it’s intents purpose. Materials of your choice will be chosen before the retreat and will be an additional cost, as materials vary widely in meaning and cost. You’ll be able to take home all materials so that you can make your own spray at home.
