Book a call & reserve your weekend in 2022

From all of the things I’ve been doing like: running my mobile spa, coaching my clients, walking my Camino, writing my novel and hosting/producing my TV series, I’m feeling called to lead spiritual retreats and coach Spiritual Storytellers to find their voice, feel their feelings, release their burdens, foster worthiness from within, and be more authentic, so they can be free to live & love as they like!

My retreats include my novel and TV series as support and I’m also guiding my clients on nature hikes through the wilderness. Of course, crystals are in the mix and dance parties, too, and there’s even time for self-care and spa services.

Free Your Story Retreats
in person in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada

Free Your Story Retreats are hosted by Free Spirit Coach, Author of Closer to Indigo and Host of Saanich: Emerging Land; Emerging People TV Series, Maria Koropecky

Maria coaches spiritual storytellers to find their voice, feel their feelings, let go of their burdens, foster worthiness from within and be more authentic so they can be free to live and love as they like

You’d Be A Good Fit For These In-Person Retreats If:

* you’re a storyteller, writer, artist, introvert, empath, coach, pilgrim, late bloomer, nature lover or crystal lover

* you consider yourself spiritual, coachable and a world traveller

* you have financial resources and are willing to invest in yourself

* you’re ready to shine and play a bigger game in life

* you have a creative project (like a book, documentary or business) that you’d like to make progress on and

* you’d like to turn a life experience into a shared experience through authentic self-expression.

Inside the Free Your Story Retreats, we cover:

  • The Ego’s Hidden Agenda – Finding out why we have an ego (false self/ old self), how it is formed and how it shows up, plus the cost of being inauthentic
  • Letting Go of Burdens – Relaxing your grip and letting go of anything that’s weighing you down and keeping you stuck (relationships, habits, old self)
  • Feeling Your Feelings – Deep diving into your inner world through meditation, body scans, journaling and self-care
  • Telling the Truth – Finding your voice, sharing from your heart and speaking up
  • Standing in Your Worth – Learning to trust yourself and cultivate your worthiness from within (and not look outside yourself for validation)
