Sovereignty of the Soul

Kingfisher Oceanside Resort & Spa

April 13-15, 2018


Discover deep relaxation for your soul with the ancient ASIAN GONGS married with the QUARTZ CRYSTAL BOWLS and the sitting gongs TIBETAN SINGING BOWLS. Your soul will be bathed in music and the waters; two of the highest frequencies available to heal and please you.  

This is a unique Spa and Yoga retreat designed for your pleasure, all while nestled in a coastal forest on the eastern shore of Vancouver Island. Sacred Transitions and the Kingfisher Oceanside Resort are hosting this event for your SOUL. The area offers breathtaking ocean and mountain views as a way of life for the entire weekend. Enjoy a $100.00 gift certificate towards a treatment at Kingfisher Spa. You can be settled into your beachfront suite no earlier than 3:00 pm on Friday, April 13th. You can choose between two accommodation options; one just steps away from the ocean’s edge, or the other which feature spectacular views of the garden courtyard. 

We meet for a restorative hip class at 5:00pm on Friday, April 13th at the Sandpiper Studio. *here’s a bonus for those of you brave enough* If you surrender your cell phone to me at this class, you will receive $25.00 cash back when I return it to you at brunch before checking out on Sunday 15th.  After our class, we meet at AQUA Bistro & Wine Bar to break bread together where you will receive another $100.00 gift certificate towards your meals for the weekend. We will have plenty of time after dinner to enjoy the outdoor heated pool, hot tub, and steam cave. Be sure to bring a suit or two as the hours are 8:00am till 10:00pm. You must book your complimentary hydropath ahead of time, so please book with the friend or friends you would like to share this experience with, and book with me soon. The entire weekend is about nourishing your soul.

On Saturday, the 14th, we meet on the beach for a silent meditation at 5:00am. There is no talking in the morning until after the mediation and you are back in your rooms. We will meditate with the sound of the bowls and the sea; a theme will be given to you the night before. Bring your blankets and a pillow. This meditation will last approximately a half an hour. Please respect the silence. We meet again at 7:00am in my room for a special coffee (my treat!) and then again at 8:00-9:30am in the Sandpiper Studio for slow sun salutations and flow class. Breakfast is where ever you want it, if you want it. There will also be an organic fruit bowl in my room for your pleasure. Help yourself. Your morning is free if you want a hydro bath or spa treatment, book for this time slot. *SPA TREATMENTS MUST BE BOOKED AHEAD OF TIME TO ENSURE AVAILABILITY 

We will do a balance and strengthen class for one and half hours at the Sandpiper Studio from 2:30-400pm. Eat accordingly. Take some time for a swim and a shower as you prepare for your Sound Healing with a guided meditation which is in the Sandpiper Studio at 5:30pm, and open to the public, so keep your mats out! We will meet in my room for some wine (my treat!) and then decide who wants to go the dining room or the bistro for dinner. After dinner, your evening is free to relax in the quiet of the pool or down by the ocean (don’t be surprised if I come along and give you a foot massage.)

On Sunday morning, there will be another silent meditation on the beach with just the bowls and the sea at 5:00am. Again, we meet at the beach in complete silence. We do a silent meditation (we will move into the studio if the weather is not forgiving). Once again, we meet in my room for a special coffee at 7:00am. We will do a sun salutation and flow class from 8:30-10:00am, and then all join for a farewell brunch where you get your phones back and your cash bonus!

Beginner’s Yoga

Please check our Facebook page for events and updates.

Every year I witness new yoginis who are brought to the awareness of their assumed limitations. One of my favourite past times is to introduce yoga to those who have never experienced it before. Both young and old, I enjoy being witness to them letting out a sigh of relief the moment they realize they are very capable of accomplishing a flow series, or an extended Asana.

It is always with great pleasure that I have the privilege to enjoy the look in their beautiful eyes when they realize that it didn’t take that long and it was in them all along! We provide a safe, welcoming environment for all. Nothing makes me happier than to share this experience in my community. Self-care is important as we gracefully age, honouring our bodies and all our sacred transitions.

Yoga for Grief and Loss

Please check our Facebook page for events and updates.
The crisis of illness, death, or other personal loss can be traumatic. Yet, inside each of these experiences is an invitation toward change and growth. Discover what's universal and unique about loss and how your response to grief affects you physically, emotionally and spiritually. Learn to use the simple yogic prescription of conscious breath and movement to bring healing awareness to your grief journey.

"I found myself face down, with my head between my ankles which were still on the floor. It was completely dark, past midnight, when the heavy sedan I was riding in met an on-coming vehicle on the makeshift hillside road. The driver of our car, who I knew only slightly, edged to the side of the road as a wide-bodied truck bore down on us. The roadbed was not solid enough for the weight of the car, and it began to slide down the hill, and then toppled over into a roll. While my physical body was limping away from the mangled vehicle, my emotional self-remained there, trapped in the wreckage.

This started a long hard suffering road of years of finding healing: first pills and then methods to get off the pills, it also made me confront the loss of my brother and my cousin in a horrific car accident decades prior, as well as my own gang rape just months before my brother’s car accident. It was the catalyst to a 11-year divorce from a ten-year marriage. This found me down in the Amazon Rainforest working with the divine plant Ayahuasca, and sent me on a journey of healing unrealized trauma and grief. The stack of processing procedures that needed to be dealt with took years. I’m a certified grief recovery specialist as well as a grief counselor. As well as filled with life experiences. I have written this work shop with love, and will be offering it a few times a year, because I know we never fully recover and Life can’t be lived without loss." ~Tracy Waters

HEALTHY FASCIA with Tracy Waters

Please check our Facebook page for events and updates.

Our fascial system is a single “organ of structure” consisting of a"saran wrap" like substance that envelops every muscle, nerve, artery, bone, and vein of the body as well as our heart, lungs, brain, and spinal cord. It is formed of layers of collagen and elastin to form an intricate web that gives our body shape and acts as a shock absorber. With aging, trauma, or lack of use, the fascia can lose hydration, limiting movement and predisposing us for joint problems, back pain or other chronic pain issues over time.

Join Tracy Waters for this in-depth workshop where you'll learn how to release and hydrate knitted fascia to increase range of motion and flexibility, improve posture, reduce pain, increase circulation and boost energy.

"Having been diagnosed with Plantar fasciitis in my 30’s, a condition which occurs when the long fibrous plantar fascia ligament along the bottom of the foot develops tears in the tissue resulting in pain and inflammation. I was told by the then sports Doctor at the University of Victoria that I would never be able to walk barefoot again (a staggering diagnosis for the bare foot Contessa in me) and that I was now imprisoned in my very comfortable special shoes (yet another staggering diagnosis in my cosmopolitan cutie personality of still being very in love with my high heels). After recovering from my tear-filled breakdown and realising this does not support my life style I continued with his method and did some of my own research. After many months of consistent, very painful reflexology I could in-fact go bare feet and I still to this day wear my heels. 

Then came my forties and after spending the better part of year mostly horizontal recovering from a car accident in 2001, I started to get arthritis in my hips as well as very sore, tight areas from my lack of mobility and internalising my real pain, after losing my athletic self. Instead of the many pills the Dr’s had me on, I found rolfing, again a very painful but effective procedure. Then I stated using yoga and massage therapy to stretch and loosen the fascia in the targeted areas of a laying or sitting body. Once your movement and loosening is restored which we like to accomplish over time and with commitment, then we like to keep your fascia healthy, these maintance workshops well be done fairly and frequently and are a very important part of growing older with Grace." Namaste, Tracy Waters 


Fun with Yoga and Sound 

Please check our Facebook page for events and updates.

Hearing is believing! Sound is, in ancient religions and cosmologies, the divine creative power, the energy inherent in the creative word. With this very fun workshop I get you into both asanas and restorative yoga poses, then play the Crystal Bowls, Gongs and Shruti box.

The idea is that you set your intention (perhaps what you want to manifest, perhaps a prayer you have been working on, or some problem solving you want to accomplish, maybe you have a speech to write? What ever you need to work on, bring the idea with you. In a very mysterious way the creative powers of the instruments I use and the power of will, work in harmony with the Universe. It’s always fun to mix intention, yoga and sound.
