Awaken the Magic | March 15 - 20, 2020
Immersed in these divine and transformational surroundings, we’ll move and breathe into presence, awaken the fire in our soul that co-creates with the universe, and release past conditioning and beliefs that have held us back from our deepest-held dreams.
Nourishing meals, connective “play”shops, and adventurous excursions through this sacred land will rejuvenate our body, mind, and soul as we reconnect to our innermost truth, purpose, and authentic power.
We’ll emerge refreshed and clear, armed with the tools and practices to move forth in the world with a deeper sense of purpose and creative empowerment.
the magic of bali
Our home for this journey will be in Ubud, Bali, whose name means “medicine” – for good reason, as this place is truly a mecca for healing and spiritual growth.

Daily life is a devotional practice as you immerse in the rituals of the local Balinese – hop into a cafe, and you’re bound to return to a perfectly-crafted flower offering perched on your motorbike with love.
From its vibrant, plant-based food scene to the iconic Yoga Barn, Monkey Forest, community of healers and lightworkers, waterfalls and rice terraces, and countless other adventures… Ubud is quite simply unforgettable.

Meet Jen + Kristen
Kristen and Jen met in Chiang Mai, Thailand where they were both living and working as women’s leadership facilitators and yoga instructors. They reunited on the magical island of Bali in early 2019, and experienced the powerful alchemy of authentic soul connection guiding them deeper into their own spiritual journeys. Rising through their insights and surrendering to the shadows, all while held in the divinely feminine container of Mama Bali, Jen and Kristen discovered how the mirroring depths of authentic connection can help us expand our lens of consciousness and rise into our true embodied magic, creative expression, and self-sovereignty.
The whispers of Bali have called them to share their experience with a new group of soulful creators, through a similar alchemical journey of connection, expansion, and activated creativity – the voyage back to the fire of our own hearts, and the magic of our own being.
Kristen is a certified holistic mindset and wellness coach, RYT-200 yoga instructor, and healer with a passion for bringing people back to their most powerful essence, purpose, and truth within. In her events, workshops and programs, Kristen weaves together her background in cognitive psychology and neuroscience with training in holistic health coaching, yoga, energy healing and mindfulness-based therapy.
Her coaching and healing approach combines a unique array of tools, models, and philosophies that she has gained and studied over 10 years of traveling and working in personal development. She believes we all hold a deep wisdom in our bodies, and weaves movement and embodiment practices with energy work and intuitive guidance into her guided journeys of personal transformation.
Jen guides women who are ready to radiate in the fullness of their expression through activating their personal power and exploring the depths of healing. She has been facilitating both one on one and group practices since 2012.
As a certified 500 RYT yoga instructor, she combines her knowledge of the physical body along with ancient practices to guide others into the fullest version of self. Her programs include embodiment practices, somatic releasing techniques, accessing subconscious states to shift mental patterns, and a deep dive into quantum creation and manifestation in order to clear energetic blockages that may come up during your time together.

Soul on Fire and New Years Retreats in Chiang Mai, Thailand
Love from Past Events
Kristen’s Soul on Fire Retreat was amazing. I can’t even explain how much magic there was and how beautifully it all came together with the people, the teachers, the exercises, the adventures, the food, the mix of work and relaxation. It all just added up to such a magical weekend.
Over these 4 days, I went from Closed Mike to Open Mike! I came into this feeling introverted and in my head, and the shared journey and adventures and yoga and ceremony and creative exercises cracked open my heart and allowed me to be relaxed and open and really flowing both in my personal and professional development.
Kristen is an awesome facilitator who really created a transformational space for us all on the retreat. She possesses the perfect blend of being a strong leader with great skills (especially yoga!), but also an equal member of the family we formed together.
I was AMAZED at the intense bonds that were made at the Soul on Fire Retreat in such a short time! We became just like a 24-hour family. This retreat was an incredible experience – great workshops, insanely beautiful location, and amazing yoga classes. There was such an ease to the days – I felt like I was really growing, expanding, and connecting the entire time.
Kristen is an amazing facilitator who creates beautiful space for transformation. She’s truly in her element when guiding a group – her openness, availability, and passion for sharing this work is such a special experience.
Love for Kristen and Jen's Work
In addition, she is adept at ensuring that every person feels welcome and safe, no matter their experience level, and her personal warmth quickly puts everyone at ease! Kristen is truly gifted as a yoga instructor - in an industry where there are many people who don’t belong in it, she is one of the few who really do, who push the bar for what yoga can be for each individual and as a collective experience.
Since you opened my eyes to my truth I now wake up every morning with a lighter heart because now I know what's my purpose. You helped me to see the potential in me and that's a beautiful gift to give to anyone in this world! And finally you helped me to find a business ideas that is related to my story and my life experiences which is what I have been looking for, for so many years!
“Jen is a true inspiration and my role model. She is fearless, open minded, and full of love. She enriches your spirit with her words, her knowledge, and her smile. She knows what she is doing, she is confident yet humble. She is caring, attentive, and truly present. She is a true Yogi and a phenomenal teacher.”
Jen's authentic expertise, her comprehension of all emotions, ensures that you feel safe to talk, judgement free, completely supported and if you are willing to do the work (emotionally and mentally) then she shows you how. I'm not sure how to express my complete and utter gratitude that she has undone, years-literally 21 years since my parents divorce-of hurt, pain and trauma that I do not need to hold onto anymore.
Frequently Asked Questions!
Is this retreat only for women?
No – we are creating a blended soul tribe of women and men for this retreat! While we initially launched this as a women’s retreat, we had increasing interest from men and decided to open the space. We have found there to be an incredible potency in mixed group, and are so excited to bring this soul tribe of sisters and brothers together in Bali!
I’ve never done yoga (or meditated) before – is this retreat for me?
Absolutely 🙂 The yoga classes will be tailored for all levels, and will provide foundations perfect for brand newbies! The same goes for meditation – we will use mindfulness and meditation as a tool, and will guide you into the practice no matter what level you’re starting at! That being said, this is not specifically a “yoga” or “meditation” retreat – this is an embodied journey using many modalities to help you connect to your core, your purpose, and inner power!
I’ve never been to Bali before – will you help me prepare?
Totally! (And, we already have many participants joining for their first time in Bali as well!) Once you signup, you’ll receive a series of onboading emails with all the info you need about flights, travel, packing, weather, and what to expect for your arrival in Bali! We are even happy to give recommendations for some of our favorite guest houses if you’ll be in Bali a few days before or after the retreat.
Will my roommate be the same gender as me?
Yes – if you sign up for a double or triple/quad room, you’ll be paired with other roommates of the same gender.
Do I need vaccinations to go to Bali?
We recommend that all retreat participants visit a travel doctor to get their official recommendations for vaccines. The CDC website also gives a good idea of what you may need outside of your routine vaccinations.
