What should I wear? The retreat is very laid back and relaxed. Please dress comfortably…..yoga pants, sweatpants, sweatshirts, etc.

I’m a little nervous and have never done anything like this before. The retreat program is designed to accommodate beginners or pros. Many women who attend our retreats have never attended a retreat before. Some are brand new to spirituality and wellness. Others have much experience and have attended many retreats. We can all learn from each other! We will make you feel at home and do whatever we can to make your experience phenomenal! There will be a mixture of group time, individual activities, and inner self-time. The retreat facilitators and the retreat center staff are very laid back, open-minded, considerate, and will make you feel comfortable and welcomed

Who comes to these retreats? Women have attended our retreats ranging in age from 18 to 75. Women have come from Maryland, Minnesota, Delaware, North Dakota, South Dakota, Missouri, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin. Most of the women come by themselves and sometimes participants bring a friend or family member with them. Some of the reasons women decide to attend a retreat include: to get away and focus on themselves, to learn more about themselves, for relaxation and rejuvenation, to experience healing, to meet other like-minded women, and to learn and experience something new.


Your hostess and guide for the day retreat:

Christina Wilke-Burbach PhD, RMT, CA. Christina Wilke-Burbach PhD, RMT, CA is a scholar, teacher, consultant, spiritual counselor, and holistic healing facilitator with 20 years of higher education and experience in psychology, spirituality, holistic healing, and natural health. She has a PhD in Health Psychology, Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology, 2 bachelor degrees in psychology and anthropology, a minor in Sociology, and is trained in Transpersonal Psychology, having studied with Stan Grof MD, PhD the father of Transpersonal Psychology. She is a Certified Aromatherapist, Herbalist, Master Gardener, Reiki Master Teacher, Ordained Minister, Intuitive, and Bodyworker.

The Chakras are the foundation of her business. Christina is the creator and sole proprietor of the Women’s Chakra Retreats. She has designed and facilitated over 25 Chakra focused women’s retreats the past 7 years. She has presented everywhere from The Midwest and Beyond and has taught hundreds of classes and group sessions. She combines science with intuition. For more information please visit https://mindsoulandself.com/about-dr-christina-wilke-burbach/. All participants will receive a Chakra Energy Intuitive Reading session with Dr. Christina. The Chakras are the main energy centers in your subtle body. They are the openings for life energy to flow into and out of our aura or electromagnetic field. There are main Chakras, minor, subpersonal, and transpersonal chakras. The Chakras’ function is to vitalize the physical body and to bring about the development of our self-consciousness. Each chakra is associated with certain physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual interactions. Low energy or slow energy in a chakra (or the entire system) can lead to disharmony, dis-ease, maladaptive patterns, low vibrating emotions, stress, and/or fatigue. Christina can identify your strongest chakras and the ones that need a little work. Receive insight into what may be contributing to problems and disrupting your energy flow, how you can reach your highest potential, and what you can do clear and return your life to balance. The most important part of the reading is discussing solutions and tips for you to achieve healing. Readings with Dr. Christina are unique as she uses them as a Spiritual Psychology, personal growth, and counseling tool.


Service Providers and Services (All Services are Clothes On!!! Please wear comfortable clothing like yoga or sweatpants).

Gina Roethle LMT is a licensed massage therapist, yoga teacher, wellness consultant, and mindful movement instructor based out of Milwaukee, WI. She draws her expertise from training and certifications in complementary health practices such as Thai massage, Yoga, Dance, Ayurveda, Reiki, Meditation, nutritional supplementation, and natural foods. All participants will receive a Thai Massage with Gina. Thai massage, often called yoga massage, is done on a mat on the ground. It is an incredible form of bodywork! The therapist uses her hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches and also applies deep muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure. Thai massage also utilizes energy work, which, according to ancient Asian culture, treats the subtle energetic field within the body. It corrects blockages, deficiencies, and imbalances in the flow of this energy, which then is believed to improve the client’s health.

Ann Fothergill LMT. Ann has been a registered hygienist for 34 years but her interest in holistic medicine has led her to massage, aromatherapy, and Reiki healing. She is certified in the clinical use of essential oils, is currently a member of NAHA (National Association of Holistic Aromatherapy), and is also a certified Reiki Master practitioner. For more info, please visit http://www.annabellesholistichealth.com/ All participants will receive a reflexology session with Ann. Reflexology is a form of bodywork that involves applying pressure to the hands and feet to produce changes in pain and other benefits elsewhere in the body. The underlying theory behind reflexology is that there are certain points or “reflex areas” on the feet and hands that are connected energetically to specific organs and body parts through energy channels in the body. By applying pressure to reflex areas, a reflexologist is said to remove energy blockages and promote health in the related body area.

Janet Fritts, Licensed Acupuncturist. Janet has been in practice in Milwaukee since her graduation from the Midwest College of Oriental Medicine in 2006. In January 2008, she opened her own Chinese Medicine practice, Balance Point Natural Medicine, LLC. Everyone will have an acpuncture sesison with Janet. Acupuncture is a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force. Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body. A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is used for overall wellness, balancing, pain relief, stress management, to release stuck energy, and relieve many symptoms of dis-ease.

Katie Nack, Certified Crystal Healer: Katie is a certified crystal healer through HMCA and shop owner of Blue Lotus Crystals. She has started her reiki journey with Dr. Christina Wilke-Burbach in September 2018, adding to her calling of becoming a healer. She has also received training from Priestesses Of The Moon on Womb Mysteries & Lunar Wisdom and continues to search out knowledge in the energy healing realms. Everyone will have a Crystal Healing session with Katie. Stones and crystals are laid on the body in different patterns and forms to facilitate healing, energy cleansing, etc.

Julie Young-Nahmens: Julie is a trained specialist in CranioSacral Therapy and SomatoEmotional Release through the Upledger Institute, Inc., based in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. She incorporates CranioSacral Therapy, SomatoEmotional Release, Reiki, and the use of Therapeutic Essential Oils to help clients find the root cause of their problem, release restrictions that cause pain and dysfunction and start the healing cycle. She is honored to assist people of all ages in healing the source of their pain, stress and trauma, and to help them live their lives with more awareness, balance and enthusiasm. Today she has a thriving CST practice for all ages in Adams WI. Everyone will have a CranioSacral Therapy (CST) session with Julie. CST is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. Using a soft touch – practitioners release restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system. Soft-touch techniques are then used to release restrictions in any tissues influencing the craniosacral system. It is very relaxing and soothing.
