About The Teacher

The beginning of the retreat and the Fire Element Day is held by Colleen, to prepare you for the later receiving stages of this journey. She elicits trauma release with you through physical movement and opened communication, so that you express and empty yourself of all that is no longer serving you.

Colleen came into this world in New York, 27 years ago. She has been living a nomadic lifestyle exploring Costa Rica, Spain and South East Asia for the past 3-4 years. 

Her nature is lively, playful and enthusiastic. She is passionate about life, embodies an adventurous spirit and has a relaxed and laid back approach to life, a self-love devotee thriving in service to others. 

Colleen leads into new ways of relating - to ourselves and to others. As a lifelong student, she keeps expanding herself and her knowledge as to offer guidance and facilitating on the journey of life. She dedicates herself to helping people awaken exquisite self-love, attracting the love they desire and deepening the love they already have with thriving, vibrant, healthy and deeply satisfying relationships.  

She believes that love is the number one healing mechanism and that the quality of our relationships directly affect the quality of our lives – all beginning with how we relate to ourselves. Furthermore, she recognises sexuality as our greatest and most underutilized tool for healing, empowerment, transformation and creativity. 

Her work is with people on a mental, physical, emotional and energetic level for a truly holistic mind-body-spirit approach as to achieve deep integration and lasting transformation.

She wants to show you how to live and love from a place of fullness, how to heal the pain of separation and how to rewrite your story as to resolve former conditioning. Not at last reminding of the sacredness of this life through rituals and ceremony Colleen cares for you to develop deep connection with yourself and with your body, showing you self-soothing and self-regulating techniques so that you can flourish once again in your joy.

Collen is certified in Reiki level 1 and as a yoga teacher. She completed a Priestess Training, studied Holistic Health Coaching for integrative nutrition and trained in "love, relationship and sexuality coaching techniques".

Life in general makes Colleen come alive, further anything that brings joy. Captured by a love for traveling, eating, dancing, music, being out in nature, spending time with loved ones, she lives for exploring and adventure - both inwards and outwards. Furthermore, she enjoys deep conversations, participating in and co-creating rituals and ceremonies, circling with community and reads avidly.

What Colleen desires to offer in YOUniverse Revival retreat is emotional liberation. She fully supports ALL your emotions.

In her sensing we live in a highly emotionally suppressed society, stunting our capacity to feel, the ability to accept our own emotions and to hold other people’s emotions. This leads to causing stagnation, pent up energy, stress, rigidness, disconnect from ourselves and others and keeps us from living life to the fullest, from feeling truly whole. Together with you she wants to explore your emotions and give them a safe container to be expressed fully, creating more space for self-acceptance, ease, freedom, liveliness and love. 

“Separation is a wound we are all carrying. It comes in many forms: separation from another, separation from ourselves, separation from the whole, the universe, the divine, but when we stop and feel into it we realize that there is no true separation, just the illusion of it that causes us tremendous pain. Returning to ourselves, our infinite source of love and the greater oneness is the path to healing the pain separation.”

My message to YOU, dear one

“I am beyond excited for you! This is YOUR time. Your revival. Your homecoming. Your rising. Your chance for EPIC expansion into your magnificent fullness.”
