LOMI LOMI and 'Birthing Your True Power' Breakthrough Retreats
on Beautiful Galiano Island
~ A Retreat Testimony~
"After struggling with depression and PTSD from childhood trauma and repeatedly falling down and failing, with traditional therapies and counselling not helping, I started looking for options, and found Luannah while researching retreats.
We exchanged a few long emails, me telling her my long story while she thoughtfully attempted to lead me to important and meaningful insights which I was reticent to accept and pushed back and actually cancelled a two day retreat as I was too deep into my despair to see the light and didn't believe anything could possibly help. She would send me life affirming quotes and I would be grateful but also have this feeling of oh man how did I get to this point in my life where life affirming quotes are incredibly helpful and to have someone send me an email with a quote and a sunset is actually helping me get through this day.
A few months went by from when I cancelled and as you can imagine things got much worse my job, my relationships, my health started to suffer. I was at rock bottom again....
Then the fog started to lift thanks to modern medicine but I was still in so much spiritual and psychological pain still spinning the same unhelpful soundtrack and I wasn't moving forward. I realized how the self punishment and patterns from my developmental years were holding me back creating the same unhelpful and painful present and future over and over again along my path. Creating the chaos I longed to escape as a child in all my relationships. Keeping me stuck and making me sick.
I decided it was time to take a big step and meet with luannah and I am so grateful that I did for a two half day session.
Through luannah combination of life coaching, counselling, Hawaiian healing philosophy, expert reflexology, lomi lomi massage along with her personal insight, compassion and guidance, she has helpedc to create the spiritual space I needed for my healing to take root, provided me with tools to help me live in the present and hopefully build a bright future. I'm ready to move forward and do my best every day.
I feel that spending time with luannah has shifted things for me in the way that traditional medicine and counselling has been unable to help with.
The retreat I experienced these past few days is something I would recommend to anyone in need of recharging their batteries to those in need of deep restorative healing, with luannah you will be in good hands while truly relaxing on a beautiful island.

Where better to experience Lomi Lomi and transformational healing than on an island that is inspires beauty,peace, and awakens your connection to nature in its purest form. Being in a natural environment that is as untouched as Galiano Island nourishes mind body and soul in the deepest way. It is in great part because of our lack of connectedness to nature that stress and dis-ease have become a norm in our society, rather than vibrant health and well being.
Galiano Island, also nick named the Hawaii of Canada, has an established reputation as being a healing island. Many come here and experience deep transformations and insights that helps restore contact with their true nature, which brings healing. It has been my experience as well. Hence, I encourage you to come here for one or two days, or more, to gain the most benefit from the healing you are looking for.
The retreats are customized to what you want to experience so the prices are also customized depending on what you want to do. You can do a one, two or three day retreat.
An example of a full one day retreat:
