St. John’s Best Kept Secrets by Lisa…

My name is Lisa and I lived inSt. John’s, Canada for my whole life (24 years).

St. John’s can best be described in these five words: colourful, lively, cultural, beautiful, friendly.

Women should consider visiting St. John’s because it has something for everyone.

The oldest city in North America, St. John’s is overflowing with culture and vibrancy – from traditional music in pubs downtown to whale watching on the Atlantic ocean.

There is a lively nightlife scene for the party girl – George Street in downtown St. John’s is said to have the most bars per capita in North America…


How to Enrich Your Life Through Spiritual Retreats to Sacred Sites…

At one time or another through our journey of life, we have all felt like we are waiting to exhale: be it at a crossroads; searching for meaning and purpose; recovering from a death, divorce, empty nest syndrome or any big change that leaves us feeling disconnected, unbalanced, out of the flow, rooted in fear and questioning everything.

This is generally the state of mind that encourages us women to look for ways to escape.

Knowing that a girls night out or a week on the beach somewhere is not going to be enough to take that objective step back and transform us – we know that we need to go deeper, re-evaluate our lives, shift our perspective and focus on transforming our stressful circumstances.

One such solution is to embark on a transformational spiritual retreat to a sacred site.

“When we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change.” – Wayne Dyer

Transformation is the process of profound inner awakening and shifts us from one state of being to another. It generally begins when our experience of life is unacceptable and the need for change is greater than the fear of stepping out of our comfort zones.

Sizzling Secrets to Celebrate Carnaval in Rio Like a Pro…

I’m Katy from San Diego, California.

Before I turned the BIG 30, I was in search for something… anything that was different from the mundane life and job I had at home.

I hit a subtle wall… but a wall nevertheless.

Having worked in odd jobs here and there, I wanted to make a major change.

So I quit my jobs and headed to South America!

Brazil had always been on my radar and I am so incredibly thankful that I chose her as my first stop.  Brazil opened me up, made me vulnerable and taught me the life lessons I needed to learn along my journey.
