NEW! Onsite Retreat with Dr. Randine Lewis!!!

Thursday, May 7th, 2015
Sat, June 13th – Sun, June 14th
The Haywood Park Hotel – Asheville, NC

Our Body Wisdom retreat March 28th and 29th was what I consider a success. Within two days, we were able to create an environment where the wisdom of the body led the way. Using the innate energies of the five elements, we delved into the manifestation of issues which tend to obstruct the free flow of energy throughout the body/mind. When they were uncovered, the energy began to flow as the participants opened up to deeper levels of their own inner experience. And this directly impacts fertility: any obstruction in the energetic flow can interfere with hormonal receptivity. Whether one has been diagnosed with advanced maternal age, ovarian resistance, or is going through IVF, clear energetic flow is what determines whether or not it will “take.” Because of the success of this shorter retreat process, and because we have been asked when we will have more, we have added three new retreat dates to the calendar:

  • June 13 & 14 – Asheville, NC
  • August 8 & 9 *
  • October 10 & 11*
(*location TBD)

Held in the heart of downtown Asheville at the Haywood Park Hotel, rooms will go fast. Asheville is a tourist destination throughout the year, but especially during the summer months and leaf season (October), and visitors come to our scenic mountain city from around the world. We recommend reserving a hotel room as soon as possible to avoid last minute price increases or hotel sell-outs – consider reserving a hotel even before you commit to the retreat, if necessary.

We also have a nice momentum going on our Zenith Club. With one live webinar and one live support call each month, the members are adding to deep discussions on our members only site. While the members are encouraged to interact and support each other, I cannot resist offering ongoing  advice, bringing the discussion into ways that can elevate one’s outlook while going through the journey toward a more fertile life. For more information about fertility enhancement support through The Fertile Soul’s Zenith Club, click here:

Retreat instruction will include:
  • Learning the energetics of TFS body wisdom
  • Group work with self inquiries into psycho-emotionally held negative belief patterns
  • Movement and meditations to move beyond these limiting belief patterns
This powerful experiential process may be the most effective and loving act you have ever taken for yourself.  Break the bonds that have held you back from the loving embrace of your deepest inner knowing. Live, move, and be the expression of love for yourself.Have you ever felt the enlivened tingling of your whole body, telling you to “go for it!” and you hesitated out of fear – instead listening to programmed doubts and fears – “what would this mean; I can’t; if only I had the courage…” And then the feeling of resonance went away, leaving you only with the scar of regret…We will go into these scars of regret and unwrap their hidden truth.

Destiny is where your genetic code meet your environment as one tingling “YES” to life. Your body feels this sense as resonance and guides you toward its fulfillment. Learn to trust your body’s intuition. Let the wisdom of your body guide you toward better health. Learn to trust your inner embodied knowing and let it guide you toward better relationships, better parenting, more abundant professional expression; learn to live from the unencumbered trust that carries the embodied wisdom of your destiny.

Instead of following any particular diet, we will teach you to listen to what your body needs. This is very different than reacting based on your tastebuds messages that you need to be filled…
Instead of following any particular physical practice, we will teach you to trust and move the way our own unique individual expression longs to move… to unravel the obstructions to living and moving according to its truth.

Understanding the Retreat Experience – “The Te of Body Wisdom”
Sunday, March 15th @ 6pm EST


THE TE [?] OF BODY WISDOM
? is translated as “virtue.” This virtue, however, is not referring to how your external behavior conforms to an ethical ideal; it is more intimate than that. Like the healing virtue of a plant, Te implies the inherent excellence of a thing; or specifically, what it is that makes you you. The Te character combines a footstep, ones heart, and the radical for uprightness. When your movements reflect the integrity of your inner heart, you are following your true destiny, and your life will move with effortless cooperation with all you come in contact. If we try to conform to an externally held ideal, we are not being virtuous; our energies become stagnant, and we become paralyzed by self concern: “Am I doing it right?” When you discover your inner rightness, you can’t do it wrong. Learn the graceful art of tapping into this magical wellspring of power.
– Enhance vitality
– Balance hormones
– Live from a sense of inner peace and tranquility
– Discover your own healing power
– Open up to how the Life Force uniquely moves you
Whether you are in your reproductive years or edging toward menopause, our body wisdom retreat can give you the healing edge you’ve been seeking. When you come to recognize that you have had the healing power within all along, your energy levels and moods will soar. You need not be at the mercy of anyone else for your fertility, health or wellbeing.
Based upon Chinese medicine, Qi gong meditative exercises, meridian movement therapy, and Dr. Randine Lewis’s groundbreaking fertility work, we will spend two days immersing you in the recognition of your own inner healing power. Whether you are seeking to conceive, heal inner wounds or recognize your true destiny, the retreat process will address your highest intention.

Join us this Sunday, 6 p.m. EST where Dr. Lewis will provide a snippet of the retreat experience: The Te of Body Wisdom.

Live Conference Call with Dr. Randine Lewis

February 22nd @ 3:00pm EST

February 19 heralds in the 4712th Chinese New Year – the Year of the wooden (green) sheep (or goat.) This is a very fertile sign. Green pertains to the wood element – indicating new growth, like a green sprout emerging through the ground, or the green leafy branches reaching toward the sun. The wood element governs transitions, the liver, and the metabolism of hormones. A healthy wood element thrives by flowing with whatever transitions come along, and is inhibited by resisting changes. Think of a tall, green bamboo plant – freely moving along with gale force winds, returning easily to its state of stillness when the wind passes. The more one is able to flow with life, the healthier ones wood element, liver, and the resulting harmony of the hormonal system.

Sheep are mostly domestic herbivores. They are not the fiercest of animals, nor the hardest workers. They are contented to forage for whatever grass is available. They are friendly, and not prone to worry.

As we look toward the new year, how contented are you? How much do you resist change? How much do you worry? Especially during the spring time, practice being flexible like green wood, or contented like the sheep.

If you are challenged by wood issues and have liver qi stagnation or hormonal elevations, drink peppermint or milk thistle tea to help balance hormones. Eat leafy green vegetables and sprouts, all good for the liver. Practice flowing qi gong movements.

To usher in the New Year, The Fertile Soul has some new offerings to share as well. Our spring retreat will be held March 28-29 at the Haywood Park Hotel in downtown Asheville, NC. We will discuss this offerings details, as well as our new TFS Zenith Club and Nutrition Webinar on this call. Check out our website for more information on these exciting new events!

Why Meditate

During our waking hours, most of us are dominated by the beta brain wave state, or the logical, rational mindset that tries to maneuver its way through life. This is great while on the job, but in this mental state, blood pressure and stress hormones are high; growth and reproductive hormones low. Blood flow to the essential organs is low; blood flow to the brain is high. We tend to be on alert; even in a state of fight/flight. And from this state, the reproductive system takes a back seat. This whole cascade is worsened when one is trying to conceive. Most women I know try to think their way into better fertility – searching out solutions through the medical profession and the internet. And the left hemisphere, beta dominant brain state takes over the body and puts them into an anxious, sub-fertile state.
More relaxed states of mind can be achieved even while being fully functional in life. We can still accomplish chores while the body/mind is under the kinder, more relaxed alpha state, and blood flow to the essential organs increases. Guided meditations and visualization processes can bring us into the delta brain wave state that we occupy during the dream state. And professional meditators can even even achieve the delta brain wave state where the mind is perfectly tranquil and still, like in deep sleep. In this state, the entire body regenerates. Blood pressure is low, blood flow to the reproductive organs, kidneys and heart is highest. Growth hormone output is maximized, and the body repairs itself. Think of it as rest and regeneration for the entire HPO axis, as if your ovaries are finally able to receive the needed replenishment.
This is one of the reasons I stress the importance of learning to achieve a calm state of body/mind through meditative exercises – still or moving, fully engaged or unplugged from the demands of daily life. In my experience, this is far more important than any type of medical therapy, be it interventional or natural. While external therapies are helpful at times, this is the only state where bodies heal themselves and achieve a change in ones reproductive potential. And it’s fully within your control.
Please join me for a free call, Tuesday, April 8th at 7 p.m. EST, where we will boost the recognition of this natural state of mind that you all have access to – at all times, in all places, no matter the circumstance.

$250 off for Individuals

This retreat will be held at the newly renovated Hampton Inn Oceanfront – Jacksonville Beach, FL.

Located on the white sandy beaches of Jacksonville, you’ll be sure to find some relaxation and rejuvenate on this destination get-a-way! Dr. Randine Lewis, author of the Infertility Cure, has helped thousands of women conceive, through her Fertile Soul retreat programming, both naturally and in partnership with reproductive medicine.

I am writing you bc I attended your retreat back in the spring of 2009.  I was in pure hell with RE & infertility.  I am compelled to share this back with you bc I know so many women are where I was then & I know you can help them.  I was told that I would never carry my own children and a long litany of other bunch of nonsense from one RE to the next.  I had my first child at 36, 11 months later a second, 2 years and 2 days later a THIRD! None of them through infertility treatments.
So I turned 40 and have had some hiccups with my cycle.  GYN says I am perimenopause & is pushing hormone pellets on me.  Went for a second opinion and I AM PREGNANT AGAIN! Hmm pretty big disparity between being pregnant & needing hormone replacement.
Please fellow Fertile Soul Sisters out there do not give up hope! M.

At the April Fertile Soul Retreat, you will spend over 20 hours with Dr. Lewis in lecture, movement and therapeutic group sessions. You will also have an in-depth Chinese medicine consultation on location and a nutrition and lifestyle consultation once home to support you in transitioning all that you learn into your daily life.  Your weekend retreat will end with a therapeutic acupuncture session with Dr. Lewis.
