MAY 4-7, 2023

Sitting on the dock with your feet dangling in the calm waters of the lake, you feel your shoulders drop and heart open as the sun warms you. Envisioning your body and mind being cleansed, your energy merges with the peace and warmth of the water. You can completely exhale…

A surge of utter knowing courses through your entire being. Goosebumps race up your arms as tears of joy streak down your face and you see your clear path laid out before your eyes. In a miraculous instant, your old anxious and stressed ways of being melt away and an epic feeling of inner freedom washes over you.

As you join the circle of soul sisters who surround you and look out over the mountains around you, you understand at your core why the lake and mountains together create the perfect blend for healing the heart, and why this lake is known as  theJewel of the Blue Ridge Mountains“. With your new friends and sisters, you speak your truth and feel this act of power ripple outward. You have the most magnificent feeling that your life will never quite be the same….

 Welcome… to Magical Smith Mountain Lake!

By the end of this journey…

You’ll return home feeling more alive and less stressedready to make those life changes you’ve been talking about for WAY too long!

You’ll learn my favorite techniques for dealing with life from a calmer, more centered place – and you’d be surprised how easy this can be!

You’ll create a personalized plan and affirmations to incorporate easily in your daily routine.

You will leave behind the self -inhibiting thoughts, learn to ignore the critical voice and most importantly learn to forgive and to move on to feeling a deep sense of gratitude.

You will be gently and skillfully guided toward a realization of your own power, inner wisdom and strengths.

My Heart Says Yes!

 Why Smith Mountain Lake?


Both the mountains and lakes hold sacred space for people dating back centuries. The mountain symbolizes desires, dreams, and hopes and because its appearance seems enduring, it is perceived as a sacred space where your earthly distresses are purified.

Mountain smells and sounds can soothe your nerves and remind you to slow down in your daily life. Hiking in the mountains can help your brain produce endorphins and help you really see the value and beauty of life.  In geology, the mountain functions as a nail holding the earth together and this can indicate the strength you find within yourself just hidden beneath the surface ready to spring forth.

A lake is considered sacred because wherever there is water, there is prosperity. Water is also a symbol for cleansing and purifying. Nothing beats the peaceful serenity of a calm lake. Being close to the water is shown to have many health and wellness benefits;  lowers stress and anxiety, increases a person’s sense of well-being and happiness, and lowers heart and breathing rate.

When you are looking to release the past and create a more calm, centered life, what better place than to have the best of both…….This is Smith Mountain Lake.

While I have know Dr. Karen for the last 7 years, it feels like an association from many lives. She is gifted and intuitive. Her ability to see beyond your present challenges makes her a class apart. She guides with love. Dr. Karen connects with a higher power that gets you connected to the highest form of truth and purest form of love.

Our Journey Together….

Whether you find that you are relaxing, releasing, or creating calm in your life…. you have accomplished your vision of attending this retreat.

As the journey begins, we come together and begin to understand how and why we have a tendency to hold on to past wounds and the first steps to finally let go. As we enter into the evening, we will relax together as we explore the power of affirmations, a statement of truth, and why our thoughts are so important to our health and wellbeing.

Exploring the trails through the mountains with leisurely guided walking meditations, the process of releasing seems easy as we consent to the trees, sky and Mother Earth to bathe us inside and out.

As we enter into our soul sister circle full of sharing, discovery, laughter and tears, we have a knowing that all is well. Taking a pause, we will experience a restorative yoga session or a sound healing bath before we have a delicious lunch together.

Plenty of free time is available to enjoy the salt water pool, hot tub or kayaks on the lake. Using your down time for journaling and reflection as well as choosing a massage with Emilee or private 1 on 1 BEST/coaching session with Dr. Karen will also be offered at this time. (Not included in pricing and spaces are limited).

Our scrumptious dinners will set the mood for our evenings where you will experience sacred ceremony for the full moon and celebration for all the self-love and forgiveness work you have done.

This retreat will create life altering expansion of your mind and heart outside of whatever you have accomplished before.  I look forward to meeting you with warmth, kindness and fun you find only at the lake!

    I Say Yes!


    I participated in my first workshop through Euphoria Transformations in July and I cannot recommend Dr. Maxwell enough! The attention to detail, the warmth and energy of the space Dr. Maxwell created, and the expertise with which the workshop was led helped me have one of the most transformational weekends of my life. I was amazed at the amount of material we worked through as well as how much was accomplished over the course of the workshop. Even now, two months later, I continue to use the work and continue to have breakthroughs—and, as an added bonus—30lbs have melted away. I am forever grateful for this experience. I look forward to attending more workshops with Dr. Maxwell and Euphoria Transformations in the future!
