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.

LIVE! Conference Call with Dr. Randine Lewis

Conference Call with Dr. Randine Lewis
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.

SELF RETREAT OVERVIEW:

The Fertile Soul now offers a personal fertility enhancing retreat, a 14 hour recorded retreat that delivers everything a live retreat does, except the “live.”  This two day session is broken down into two segments, where Dr. Randine Lewis provides:

  • A vision of hope
  • A new approach to your fertility, shifting paradigms from “efforting” to “allowing”
  • Using the energetic view of Chinese medicine: Yin/Yang; 3 Treasures, 5 Elements
  • Acupressure for fertility
  • Microcosmic orbit breathing process – open the life gate
  • Age and the ovarian cycle; what hormones really mean
  • Qi Gong
  • Spleen Qi diet and nutritional recommendations
  • Supplements for various conditions
  • Guided meditations
  • Releasing Exercise
  • Physical, mental and emotional components of your fertility
  • Exploring limiting beliefs and obstructions to the life force
  • Patterns of imbalance that manifest as various fertility diagnoses
Dr. Lewis guides you through these pre-recorded sessions, and provides multiple exercises and self inquiry processes for you to complete at your leisure.
Q: How is this different from the live retreat process?
A: Dr. Lewis has encapsulated what she considers the most important elements in the retreat process and concentrated it in this very informative two day session. You are not “on the spot”, and don’t have to share any personal information with anyone else. You can go through the information as many times as you wish and have one full year to complete the process on your own. The main difference is that you will not be meeting with Dr. Lewis live. However, the recorded retreat process allows you the opportunity to meet with Dr. Lewis for an individual session after you have had a TCM consultation and have been on the program for three months.

Wednesday, November 12 @ 4:00pm EST

REGISTRATION: http://thefertilesoul.com/shop/retreats/re14-0920-the-fertile-soul-online-retreat

RETREAT OVERVIEW:

We will be offering The Fertile Soul retreat process online, in the comfort of your own home October 18 and 19, 2014. This virtual retreat process will be conducted live with Dr. Randine Lewis, beginning at 8:00 a.m. EST – 2:30 p.m. EST both Saturday and Sunday. We will meet three hours in the morning, break 30 minutes for lunch, and meet three hours each afternoon.

Wednesday, November 12th @ 4:00pm EST – we will have a follow up support evening with all participants.

Dr. Lewis has helped women overcome very devastating reproductive issues, like advanced maternal age, poor ovarian response, high FSH, low AMH, endometriosis, POF, autoimmune implantation failure, PCOS, and recurrent miscarriage. She requires everybody she works with to attend her powerful retreat process. Each participant will be scheduled for a diagnostic TCM evaluation and individualized herbal prescription as part of the retreat process. The online process will be similar to a live retreat, and will allow participants to ask questions, share their experience, and connect with other members of the retreat group.

Instruction will be provided on Chinese medical therapy, internal inquiry regarding causative factors of reproductive dysfunction; dietary therapy, nutritional supplementation, individualized herbal formulation, reproductive massage, stress reduction, and qi gong meditative exercises. We will dive into deeper causative issues like, how do imbalances arise? What does my outlook have to do with my reproductive functioning? Dr. Lewis will share her revolutionary healing process and help you relate to your fertility in a natural, healthy, and open way.

Women who have attended the retreat process have called it life changing. While it definitely improves their fertility quotient, it also can empower women to approach their fertility in far more positive ways. We can help you, whether or not you are trying to conceive naturally, or undergoing assisted reproductive technology.

Fertile Soul RetreatJacksonville, FL
April 25-28th
$250 off for Individuals
(use the code TFS250)

This retreat will be held at the newly renovated Hampton Inn Oceanfront – Jacksonville Beach, FL. Come and join Dr. Randine Lewis in beautiful and sunny Jacksonville Florida this April and leave your winter blues behind. 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.

Honestly, very few who have been on the fertility journey for long look forward to another holiday season without children. It is painful to sit through family celebrations while everyone else seems to be sharing in the joy while all you are feeling is the ache of emptiness at the center of your heart.

We are having our November and December retreats just prior to Thanksgiving and Christmas/Hanukah for that very reason. No matter what your holiday traditions are, I invite you to join me for our winter retreats in the beautiful mountains of Asheville, NC. In both retreats we will deal with strategies not only to make it through the holidays, but to truly  join in the spirit of holiday cheer in fertility enhancing ways.

I remember being at my lowest when somebody asked me what I was grateful for. All I could squeak out was “nothing.” I was horrified at how empty my life felt when, from the outside, everything looked good. All I was aware of was what was missing. Yet the energy of gratitude is one of the strongest, most life enhancing energies we can participate in. Yet we can’t fake it. Until it is real, it is just a lie. Our November retreat will bring you to the place of true, unadulterated abundance. There is nothing more irresistible to the grace of new life.

December will take us into the depths with the true meaning of the winter solstice – rebirth. Imagine if this holiday season you could come into the very depths of your being, your most fertile self, and make it manifest. While this may sound like it would be a miracle, it is. Yet, have you ever really recognized the miraculous potential you have within? We will be utilizing traditional rituals and inner work to maximize your most fertile potential. And, like all retreats, the diagnostic aspects of traditional Chinese medicine will be offered, as well as energy work, acupuncture, and individualized herbal prescriptions.

Whether you are a returner or this will be your first retreat, I hope you will be able to offer yourself a gift to yourself and join us during these powerful retreats.

With love and blessings,

Randine

“Viewing Your Fertility through an Eastern Lens”

Sunday, September 1st @ 8:00pm EST

The Western medical attitude about fertility is not all that complex, but can be limiting. Reproductive medicine views fertility as a function of young ovaries, unblocked fallopian tubes,  a uterus with no obvious obstructions, and laboratory values within normal limits. Chinese medicine, on the other hand, views the lab values and reproductive organs as mere reflections of our underlying fertility, which is a function of the the spirit, the blood, the heart, kidneys, spleen, liver, how our various life energies interact with our environment, and how much “essence” we have available to support new life after it has taken care of the demands of our own.

Join Dr. Lewis on a conference call Sunday, September 1st at 8:00 p.m. EST as she discusses a more holistic view of fertility based on the ancient Eastern system of healing.  For those interested in learning about diet, Kathryn Flynn will lead a discussion on nutrition and fertility following Randine’s call.

“Manifesting Your Destiny”

The longing for a child has arisen in you. Have you ever investigated its power, its source, its life within you? When we are in harmony with this desire, we are also in harmony with its power. When we are out of harmony with it, it cannot come through. We tend to get lost in the obstructions and focus on “What’s wrong?” rather than on the power of the longing itself. It can remove obstructions to its expressions, but your external efforts cannot. I will work with the August retreat participants in maximizing the power of this longing’s ability to manifest itself through you. August is a powerful month; in Chinese numerology eight represents abundance and fulfillment. Eight days after the eighth full moon, Life’s longing for itself begins the process in the spawning of the coral reefs.

Eight also is signified in the eight extraordinary meridians that hold and circulate the essence of our life potential. Eight winds carry the eight transformational energies that manifest through the body/mind. We will work with these energies in maximizing fertility and overcoming the obstructions to its expression.

I hope you will join us in Asheville, NC August 16th for this powerful retreat process. I will also provide a call for new and returning retreat participants Saturday August 10th at 8 p.m. EST.
