WELCOME TO THE EMPOWERED SPIRITUAL RETREAT
MEET THE HOSTS
Brittany Dunbar & Deanna Merlino
Brittany and Deanna have been best friends for 17+ years brought together by fate. Through all of the stages of their lives so far, they continuously grow together, sharing their experiences and learnings with one another. After discovering that they were going through spiritual awakenings at the same time, they realized they had a calling to use their gifts to help others heal, become aware of their own divine talents and navigate through this thing called life. Co-hosting these retreats together have become some of their favorite moments.
Meet your retreat healing facilitators
Savannah is a Certified Mindfulness Facilitator, Certified Reiki Master, sound healer, wellness event curator, and small business owner. She also holds a Bachelor's degree in Environmental Design from the University at Buffalo.
Since 2018, Savannah has been hosting meditation classes and mindfulness events throughout Western New York. Her ultimate passion is sharing natural healing modalities that restore balance to the mind, body and spirit. She opened her business, Soulstice Meditation, in January 2020. Since then, Savannah has helped hundreds of people access inner peace through meditation, breathwork, energy healing, sound healing, and plant medicine.
In private sessions and group settings you can expect to be given a safe space to express yourself authentically, explore evidence-based techniques that combine spirituality and science, connect with your body-mind (yes, they are linked!), and feel re-energized from releasing the heavy burdens of stress. Lastly, Savannah believes that we can be our own healers, that vibrant health is our natural state, and it begins with aligning the mind, body, and spirit.
Yogi Josh is a 200 HR YTT that earned his certification in India, nestled between the Himalayan Mountains and Ganges River. His life and his teachings are highly influenced by the time he spent learning from the Swamis, Yogis, Vedas, and Rishis. This deep ancestral wisdom mixes with his fitness background to create a fun, lighthearted, class that is noticeably charged with an undertone of reverence. Yogi Josh has also spent the past 8 years studying medicinal herbs, mushrooms, and foods, which has led him to start a business sharing his findings. The business is called "Life Itself".
Prepare for a fun, highly charismatic, and deeply transformational experience with Yogi Josh.
Hi beautiful souls! My name is Jamie, the Creatrix of Sovereign Soul. My soul’s mission is to empower, guide, and heal others on their life journey using ancient spiritual knowledge, tools, and sacred healing practices, along with my connection to the Divine.
Each one of us lives an incredibly unique, diverse, and beautiful human experience. We all face not only the harmonious, aligned, joyful, blissful experiences of this life- but we also face the unexpected challenges, traumas, changes, mistakes, and darkness- which ultimately test our faith, our identity, and our reason for being here in the first place. I SEE YOU and you are NOT alone in this journey!
My intention with all offerings is to be a beacon of light for you. To hold a safe space for you. To extend unconditional love, compassion, and healing. To restore your faith and trust in the spiral of your life journey so you can continue to surrender, grow, transform, and heal- alchemizing darkness into light and reclaiming your sovereignty.
