Unlearn your way to freedom.
This is a call to seekers of truth, freedom, adventure and healing.
I'm inviting you to stop.
Stop the hustle. Just for a minute.
Have that feeling that you're ready for an upgrade? Like something new is wanting to happen in your life, but stopping long enough to decipher the nudges isn't happening? Or maybe you know it's time to make changes, and you need a break from life to really tune in to what your next steps will be.
This is an indicator from your soul that you're ready for the next level.
Leveling up is a nonlinear experience, and when you’re built to innovate and lead like you are, you’ve got to be fluent in the realms outside of the physical too. You know there’s more to this human experience than meets the eye, but when’s the last time you played in the energetic realm and trusted what you got? Challenged the mental to find more expansion? Listened to your heart to get in touch with what matters?
Remember when your creativity lit you up? Remember when the sense of awe and wonder was a regular experience?
Standing on the edge of the cliff is exhilarating because you know living fully doesn’t mean being comfortable.
I’m inviting you to jump.
Jump into an experience that will have you running on all cylinders, tapping into the field of what’s all around you, but that most people don’t even know they’re swimming in.
Rebel Sage Ecuador Retreat
May 2 – 9, 2020
The Valley of Longevity in the Andes Mountains
This is your opportunity to tune in to what wants to come through you. And that requires stillness, listening, and expanding your consciousness.
We’ll be working with plant medicine to create those openings, as well as experiential exercises, discussions and Lisa’s undivided attention to coach you through the sticky spots.
You aren’t like everybody else. When life gets too routine, you start to get buggy. If you haven’t had an adventure in a while, you notice your energy levels wane and colors lose their vibrancy. That insomnia you’ve been experiencing? Yeah, most likely because there’s something calling to you that you can’t quite make out – especially if you haven’t fed your vitality meter on the regular or stopped to listen to that inner voice lately.
You’re ready to challenge yourself, your definition of reality, and get a hefty dose of experience. Reading about experiences just doesn’t cut it when you’re committed to following your heart for a living. You have to feel it. So join me for 7 nights in the beautiful Andes mountains for an experience of a lifetime.
You won’t come back the same person because something will have shifted about your perspective, your definition of yourself, and how you want to play in the world.
Come Play a New Game.
Rebel Sage Retreats are adventures in consciousness designed to create new levels of awareness that have you unlearning old patterns, remembering what matters most to you, unveiling the mysteries of life with other like-minded pioneers, and creating new realities.
Unconventional transformational experiences
I’m Lisa Welden, and I have been where you are.
I found myself chasing the elusive experiences of freedom and fulfillment in a place many of us go: 'out there'.
In my private healing practice, if a client came in with something I didn't know how to work with, I would find the training and education to treat it. I collected trainings and workshops like a stamp collector collects, well, stamps. If someone came in with a physical, mental, emotional or spiritual crisis, this lady right here had their back. Awesome, right?
Actually, no. It was sucktown.
Because when I got really honest with myself, while I am forever grateful for my passionate curiosity, I found a layer underneath the curiosity - the layer of I AM NOT ENOUGH.
And the more education I chased, the more I moved into my head. The more I moved into my head, the harder it got to hear my own guidance, and the less I trusted what I did hear. I didn't feel freedom or fulfillment, even though I was a super smart cookie.
I suspected there was another way to do this human experience thing because I had such a strong desire for freedom. I trusted that desire was real, and that it wasn't going anywhere unless I found another way to BE me.
That's when I found myself in pivotal experiences with mentors and in unconventional, heart-expanding, mind-blowing experiences that all directed me back to me and to unlearning something about myself I'd thought was true. To become aware of what I held inside me, without having to put anything new in. I started listening to my intuition, my heart, even my guts and started taking action on what I found there. I went inside.
I empower others to find their freedom.
What I found has been one of the great mysteries of life that keeps unveiling itself as I continue my own personal evolution into human adulthood. What I have found inside is what lights me up to lead other people to themselves - to living lives they're inspired by. To trust themselves at a whole new level that has them finding their own rhythm and flow.
Had I been connected in this way that I learned through my education, experiences, and self-work, I would have had the confidence to listen to my heart years before.
Today I work with clients in a unique way combining my experience in Chinese medicine and Eastern philosophy, mentoring, mindfulness-based practices, spiritual guidance, and my passion for what I call ‘adventures in consciousness’ to support people to connect with the truth of their heart and take inspired action.
It's time for you to disconnect from your regularly programmed life,
and connect to the part of you that knows the way.
May 2-9, 2020
We will be traveling to beautiful Vilcabamba, Ecuador - the Valley of Longevity - in the Andes mountains for a mindfully-designed experience that includes:
7 days of unplugging from the noise of everyday life, and plugging into Self, Spirit, nature and life's mysteries.
Join your fellow seekers of freedom, truth, inspiration, and adventure in discovering your Unlearned Self and what s/he has to share with you.
7 days of Lisa's undivided attention, coaching through sticky spots, and experiential Unlearning discussions, exercises and invitations that have you questioning life as you've learned it.
Working with plant medicine(s) in a safe and trusted environment to create new openings of consciousness and possibility.
Unveiling new levels of awareness that have you showing up more connected, clear and confident about who you are and what matters most to you.
Time to BE with daily yoga, hammock and pool time, homemade, fresh & local foods, hiking and breath-taking views.
Integration throughout the retreat so you are returning home with a clear vision of what you are consciously creating in your life.
2 group calls pre-retreat to set intentions, meet your fellow travelers and start creating possibilities that the whole group is helping you to manifest.
Bonus: 90-minute BG5 Human Design Overview. Think of this as the owner's guide you never got. You will discover how you are uniquely designed to make decisions, collaborate with others, transmit energy when you are in/out of alignment, sign posts that let you know when you're on/off track, what environments you thrive in, and how you integrate information. Some have called this 'practical spirituality' as it's about honoring how you are here to be authentically 'you' interacting with your world instead of how you've been conditioned to be in the world.
If this has you leaning in, book a call to learn more and see if you are a fit for Rebel Sage Ecuador!
Get out of your head and into your heart.
Your head gives you explanations, reasons and fear-based logic (all that has created your ‘learned’ self).
Your heart speaks in whispers, images, and feelings.
Take this opportunity to retreat and quiet the noise outside, so you can go inside and
connect with your UNLEARNED SELF.
You will be surprised by what you find!
This retreat is for you if:
you want to be part of the next shift in consciousness and the human experience.
you prefer to experience transformation rather than read about it.
you know you need time away and a jump start to channel the next iteration of you and your life purpose.
you crave adventure and know that changing your perspective feeds your creativity, innovation and fills your tank.
you're ready to excavate the next layer of you that allows you to lead with more clarity, compassion and collaboration.
leading from your heart is one of your core values.
you want to create a better relationship with uncertainty by tuning in to wisdom practices that support your instinctual, intuitive, gut-knowing.
it's important you feel physically vital and more alive.
committing to aligned partnerships, relationships and work opportunities is non-negotiable. You don't want to operate out of obligation or striving anymore.
you value cultivating your intuition, inner wisdom, and guidance.
Signs you need to retreat, recharge and remember who you are here to BE:
you feel the need for adventure and new experiences that have you looking through a new pair of eyes.
you are GOING THROUGH THE MOTIONS in some aspect(s) of your life. (p.s. this retreat will get you out of that danger zone ASAP)
you're lacking the vitality and joy for life you know you're capable of. Sure, you’re getting by, but it’s not on all cylinders. You remember when you felt a little spicier, and you liked it.
your physical body is speaking to you through symptoms like GI issues, low energy levels, weight gain, insomnia, menstrual irregularities, headaches/migraines, catching frequent colds and memory issues.
checking out & avoiding - you're finding lots of reasons why not taking action seems perfectly justified, and choosing distractions (devices, games, work, substances, food, binging Netflix, social media) to not see what's in front of you that feels off.
restlessness, and a feeling that something just isn't quite right. Frequent irritation and frustration with people and situations you're in.
you've been putting work ahead of your own personal care and find yourself consistently sliding to the bottom of your To Do list.
your head is louder than your heart, and you're only using logic and reasoning to determine next steps.
The Universe is conspiring FOR you
to know your true self.
This retreat is NOT for you if:
You aren’t willing to be vulnerable and learn something new.
It’s more important for you to listen to the logic of your mind than the YES coming from your heart or gut.
You aren’t willing to invest in yourself to step into greater freedom.
You're looking for a conventional, tame, typical or vanilla experience.
