Testimonial from a participant:

I had the wonderful gift to encounter Cami at Wild Rice Retreat June 2023.  My girlfriends and I were enjoying a long weekend together when we attended one of Cami’s classes.  As an inpatient acute care surgical healthcare provider and graduate student of Theology, I tend to approach workshops with skepticism, expecting a superficial approach to a broad topic.  Cami blew us out of the water.  Coming from different professional and personal backgrounds, all three of us were drawn in and engaged in Cami’s easygoing approach to a meaningful and well-researched strategy to assist individuals on the journey of reflection, assessment, and mindfulness to create helpful and sustainable action plans to facilitate growth in the wake of big change.  We only had about an hour and would have loved a week!  After personally experiencing the multifaceted despair the pandemic exposed in critical care medicine and delving into research on Moral Injury in the healthcare worker accelerated by the conditions of the pandemic for graduate studies, Cami offered an enlightening personal experience that created space to withdraw gently and gaze in the direction of opportunity to grow as a whole human without the stresses of how to manage all the minute details.  We continued our conversations after our sessions which helped a group of friends who have known each other for decades grow closer.  We identified fears and stresses in our own lives as middle-aged working women that we can prepare for gently and compassionately.  I look forward to future opportunity to learn from Cami and her well-informed and compassionately created approach to embracing life and well-being!


Enjoy gathering together — reflecting, sharing, learning new skills to ignite personal vitality across all dimensions of well-being. You will leave with a personal wellness plan and self-care strategies to ensure your confidence in restoring and sustaining a vital and satisfying life.
