Common Questions About Retreats
Please note that not all the specifics of Mystical Workshops & Adventures are noted on the website. Please contact Karen directly with any questions you may have or to customize a an event. Some common questions include:
Who would benefit from a Mystical Adventure retreat?
- is experiencing a turning point in their lives
- is examining previously-held beliefs
- has been having unusual experiences (such as repetitive or synchronistic experiences)
- wishes to explore their intuitive abilities and wants to tap into their intuition consciously and more regularly
- wants to have a deeper connection to themselves, their loved ones and acquaintances, and understand the spiritual role that people have in our lives
What does a Mystical Adventure retreat involve?
It is an out-of-town (perhaps out of body, too!) experience away from family obligations, cell phones, computer, etc. (except in cases of emergency). It usually starts at about 3:00pm and ends about 10:00pm and is two sessions in one. Session 1 is a workshop where 2-3 topics are explored. Although I open by commenting on our topics for the session, every participant is invited to share their wisdom and any particular expertise they have regarding the topics. That being said, no one is expected to speak. Session 1 also includes some intuitive exercises and journaling. After the workshop portion is over, there is a break for supper and then we get together again for the intuitive readings/party (Session 2), which include Tea, Crystal and Stones, Tarot, and other card readings. Rather than rush questions or have to leave when there is a great conversation underway, the Retreat allows us to stay together longer, stay up late if we like and not have to drive home or be up early the next day.
What is a Mystical Adventure?
A Mystical Adventure is a combination of a workshop and a mystical party. They can be held at Karen’s apartment located in Central Halifax or as an overnight event held at a hotel or Inn located within a few hours of city limits.
Does it involve any meditation?
There will be the initial guided meditation to help us all relax/unwind and as a part of creating sacred space, and then there will be a longer guided meditation later in the event. The intent is to express gratitude, offer service in our World, to seek connection from our Higher Self and guides.
Am I allowed to bring divination tools?
While it is not necessary to bring anything with you, you are welcome to bring, stones, cards (Tarot, etc.) and any other divinatory tools that you are familiar with and would like to use. Depending on the chosen location of the event, it may be possible to bring musical instruments such as drums, etc.
Will I be getting a personal intuitive reading?
There will be mini readings and messages throughout the second half of the session. It’s also possible that messages may come in the form of an animal totem, angel energies, a daydream/vision, etc.
Will any of my personal life be revealed in the readings?
What folks share in the mystical workshops & adventures is up to them. As to the intuitive readings, all information is provided with the best of intentions for the well-being of each participant and is not about my abilities or what I am able to “intuit” about people. It is my belief that anything you chose to remain private, will not be brought up in a reading.
How will I get to know my fellow participants?
I will set up a resource table, which include brochures and/or business cards of participants, recommended books etc., any healing modalities participants use or offer, etc. As I mentioned earlier, you may bring any items for divination and it may possible to bring musical instruments. This plus the discussion around the topics will help us to experience greater connection to one another.
Will I and the other participants have any other responsibilities?
Everyone present will all be responsible for keeping the space tidy/clean.
How are any disagreements handled?
There has not been a need in any of the previous adventure events to handle any disagreements. The workshop session is not about determining whose perspective is right or wrong but appreciating and honoring the differing perspectives that people have based on their knowledge and experiences. The creation of sacred space at the beginning of the session provides a safe space for participants to learn, share ideas and express beliefs.
What about Costs?
Cost for the workshop/party (approximately 6 hours) is $55. Adding this will be the cost of the accommodation. I will let folks know what the rate is based on shared occupancy. Participants will be responsible for booking their room (private if they so choose) and that way any extra expenses associated with that room will be paid by the participant. Although meals are not provided, snacks, tea and coffee will be available throughout the day. The participants are responsible for transportation to and from the event.
