– Let the Soft Animal of Your Body Love What it Loves – Mary Oliver

Dr. Randine Lewis pioneered “Meridian Movement Therapy”, using the five energetic movements of the elements to work through obstructions of body, mind, and spirit, to help women become more vibrantly fertile. Taoist Body Wisdom is the ancient yoga also known as Tao Yin, the feminine way of embodying our most creative states of being. Infertility struggles can leave one with unresolved health issues, poor body image, or a disconnected physical relationship. If the body becomes an adversary, expecting it to produce a child is almost impossible. We will guide you through and beyond psychoemotional issues, held physically, and into the inherent joy held within your cellular makeup.

Dr. Lewis, author of The Infertility Cure, and The Way of the Fertile Soul has helped numerous women overcome the devastating diagnosis of “infertility” through her ground breaking work that is now offered to all women of all ages and levels of health/fitness. (You do not need to be on the fertility journey to attend.) Our two day Body Wisdom retreat will bring you back in love with your own physical being. Learn to trust and move your body in a way to maximize the flow of your own body’s movement in life. This is the most direct and intense fertility practice that Dr. Lewis teaches. Dr. Lewis has worked with women that, like herself, she calls “recovering intellectuals”, who have lived life through their heads rather than their bodies. TFS body wisdom is a kind but powerful method of tuning directly into the wisdom of the body to discover and overcome blockages to physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.
While most enlightenment practices are male oriented – focusing on overcoming the mind; TFS Body Wisdom is for women, who experience life through the intimacy of their bodies.
Our bodies know what we need. Our bodies long for what we want most – a truly united state of intimacy with ourselves: unfragmented, undivided, and whole. Issues like infertility, autoimmune conditions, and cancer are all manifestations of inner division. Their first appearance lies in subtle obstructions – sometimes we intuit that something is out of sorts, but our minds can’t find what is wrong. We may blame our spouses, our jobs, or some aspect of our external life. Our bodies always know – the answer lies within.
Answer the most profound call you’ve ever heard – the inner voice that draws you deep within to the embodied awareness of your own divinity. TFS Body Wisdom is based upon non-resistance: that every single symptom – physically, mentally, or emotionally, is not a pain to get rid of, but an invitation to listen to ones inner knowing.
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 pattern
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.
Bring comfortable clothes. All meals will be on your own – however, there are many dining options just outside the hotel doors. If you do decide to leave during meal times, we recommend that you stay close during these breaks as the schedule is full and we will need to start each session promptly in order to maximize your time with Dr. Lewis.

After 8 failed IVF’s, I felt hopeless.  No doctor believed I would ever conceive and especially not with my own eggs.  At a friend’s recommendation, I attended the Fertile Soul Retreat and followed Randine’s 90 day program.  I conceived naturally.  My doctor’s were stunned.  Now having my second baby, I understand the importance of rebalancing the body prior to conception.  I only wish I had found the Fertile Soul retreats before spending my emotional and financial resources on Western Medicine.  I am so grateful to have two healthy beautiful babies.

At December’s Fertile Soul retreat, you will spend over 20 hours with Dr. Lewis in lecture, movement and group therapy.  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. Payment plans are available at no additional cost.  For more details and to sign up please click here.

Protection – A Barrier to Conception?

Tuesday, June 19th, 2012

Our primary physical directive in life is survival, or self-preservation. All other physiological functions come after the primary directive has been met. If we can survive, we can potentially thrive, become productive members of society, and reproduce. If our sense of safety and security are perceived to be in jeopardy, however, the body/mind diverts attention away from growth, until the threat passes. The reproductive function is the first to be sacrificed, as your body does not want you pregnant if your life is in danger. We don’t question this directive in nature – animals in the wild don’t reproduce well when their survival is jeopardized. They don’t go into heat when resources are scarce or they are in captivity. Yet, when this happens in us, we panic and think there is something wrong. In actuality, our bodies are doing exactly what they have been conditioned to do, from our own life responses to the deepest messages carried within our DNA.

I recently worked with a woman whose entire fertility pursuit threatened her very sense of well-being. She constantly felt like her life was in jeopardy. Almost as soon as she decided to try to have a baby, her hormones started to fluctuate and her cycles became erratic; eventually her periods quit altogether. Her body/mind went into panic and survival mode. She experienced severe anxiety and mild panic attacks every time she thought about not being able to have a child. The harder she worked to overcome this feeling of threat, the more threatened she felt.  Throughout her healing process, every practitioner she went to for help (acupuncturists, nutritionists, and therapists) seemed to further perpetuate this feeling of panic. The more she was given to do, the more overwhelmed she felt.

Deep inside there was a feeling that her very survival needed protecting. No doctor or therapist could talk her body out of this deeply held unconscious belief. Yet, her heart could. Chinese medicine views the heart as the only true healer, as it houses the spirit, or life giving force of all of existence. The healing had to begin in her own heart.

While we teach individuals how to calmly harmonize themselves with their environments, the real work we do on retreat is to put individuals in touch with the healing power of their own hearts. When they no longer have to protect themselves, the invisible shield that I call “infertility,” naturally falls.

The Basics of Fertility Enhancement

Q&A with Dr. Randine Lewis

Monday January 30th at 7 p.m. EST

I strongly believe that even just finding out about The Fertile Soul has a powerful, ripple, helpful effect, especially for those who cannot travel, but who nevertheless read — and listen– ask questions, wonder, benefit, and grow, grow, grow. L.H.

I am looking forward to a rich retreat in January, where we will focus on aging, overwhelm, and turning into the wellspring of deep inner guidance. In this inner sanctuary there is no aging or overwhelm. When we can reside in this place, a more fertile response to life is possible, which of course, is reflected in our reproductive response. Our New York session filled up quickly, but we do have openings in February in my hometown of Asheville, NC, February 17-20th, where our focus will expand to include welcoming in the year of the Dragon, a powerful and dynamic expression of the Chinese New Year. We will use this power to deeply connect with the life-giving source within. I love witnessing the power of retreat participants as they learn to live the miracle!

We will also offer a free conference call on Monday, January 30th at 7 p.m. EST. I will go over some fertility basics and open the call up to your questions and answers. I hope you will be able to join us – whether you are new to the Fertile Soul or have already embraced this process. I look forward to connecting with you.

To Join in dial 605-475-4000 then access code 794774#.  Those calling from Canada should call 805-360-1075 and then you will be prompted to enter the original number and access code.
