Schedule Your Discovery Call

Free.  Unencumbered.   Spacious.  Expansive

Real.   Alive in your senses.

Rested.  Unrushed.

Nourished.   Held.  Connected.

Join a sanctuary of sisterhood at the base of sacred Mt. Shasta for four days of illumination, exploration, and renewal. Walk barefoot in the pines, sing around the fire, swim in alpine lakes, eat nourishing meals, go to bed and wake up with the sun, rest when you are tired, and dance when you desire. 

We all need time to unplug, be honest with ourselves, and play. And to be witnessed in all of it. This is a four-day break from self-judgments, shoulds, to-do lists, and technology.

This is a time for self-nurturing and remembering, and you deserve it.

Yes, You Can Experience … 

  • A sustainable sense of inner peace and contentment
  • Deep rest and restoration for your body, mind, and spirit
  • Space for contemplation, introspection, and reflection
  • Connection with nature and your true nature
  • New friendships and authentic relating
  • Practical tools for incorporating spirituality into daily life









August 26-27, 2023

We Created the Clarity Retreat for You...

  • If you are feeling overwhelmed or burnt out, and you want to (you know you need to), slow down. 
  • If you’ve prioritized your spiritual life and are ready to embody your Soul’s signature with new practices and authentic devotion to truth.
  • If you want gentle guidance to nourish your body, shine your light, and find deeper well-being.
  • If you crave to laugh, let loose, be seen, get wild, sip in the quiet, and howl at the moon.

Mount Shasta is a Sacred Vortex 

Mt Shasta is known as a portal of higher consciousness. Pilgrims from around the world journey here for spiritual awakening. It is no wonder the transformational authors, teachers, and way-showers come here to renew, receive transmissions, channel, and create works of art. Many find the frequencies in Mt. Shasta open their intuitive abilities. At the same time, Siskiyous County is a world-class destination for all-season outdoor adventures. The wilderness is pristine. The beauty is breathtaking. 

Our retreat center will be at Joy’s home, The Creekside Inn. With a large lawn, creek access, outdoor patio, hot tub, fire circle, and temple space, we are nestled in the woods with privacy and sacred energy. 

On Friday and Saturday, we will explore and pray in nature and take two excursions into the most beloved areas of the Mt. Shasta region. (All within 20 minutes of our home base.) 

During Our Four Days Together, You Can Expect ... 

  • Creativity, writing, soul expression, and experiencing flow states.
  • Yoga and embodiment practices such as dance, breath, and movement.
  • Visiting sacred sites and connecting with nature
  • Ceremony, rituals, circles, prayer, sound healing, and a fire circle.
  • Soul sisterhood, new friendships, and nourishing community experiences. 

The Flow

We’ve designed a loose schedule with room to breathe and be spontaneous. Combining body-based practices with group sharing, solitude for introspection, and ceremony, we expect a delicious array of ah-ha moments, inspiration, and deep transformation.

Pre Event - Friday - Optional Play Day You are invited for a day of hiking (and alpine lake swimming) with Joy and Sage. The destination is to be determined. The hike will be moderate and include some hill climbing. Bring a backpack with water, lunch, a towel, and clothing layers.

Meet Joy.

Joy Taylor is an ordained priestess, truth-teller, and artist of life. As a companion guide in awakening, she honors the principles of nature and everyone’s innate ability to heal and to create a life they love.

She is the founder of A Soul-Inspired Life, a company dedicated to the evolution of consciousness. The author of the #1 Amazon bestselling book, Inspired, and creator of A Woman's Way of Awakening, she is passionate about empowering people to contribute to a better world through authentic spiritual embodiment and inspired action.

Joy loves to write. She’s been journaling and doodling for over thirty years, writing her way to truth. Most recently, she utilized writing to access her intuition and connect with her Guides. Utilizing automatic writing, Joy is in awe of the grace. 

As an empath with her feet on the ground, she weaves the practical with the mystical. She integrates soul exploration, breath, embodiment practices, dance, music, writing, and visual expression into her alchemical work. 

Joy lives in Sacred Mt. Shasta, California, where heaven and earth meet. Her days are filled with yoga, tree hugs, lake swims or snow shoes, and soul-inspired services with clients and friends.

Meet Sage.

Sage Simpson is a teacher, creator, ceremonialist, and coach. Grounded in integrity, pleasure, connection and love, she helps people align with the truth of who they are. 

Sage offers an ecstatic and eclectic blend of transformational practices. She teaches poetry, performance, writing, and Yoga teacher training. She facilitates Sacred Sexuality Circles, Cathartic Ceremony, and Rewilding retreats, all supporting people in awakening and remembering the pleasure, peace, and love that is their true nature. With Sage’s intuitive and unconditional loving presence, reconnection with your body, spirituality, sexuality, nature, and creativity naturally emerge.

Sage fell in love with writing and drawing young and her journal and pen have been her global travel partners. Her daily personal writing practice is a sacred space for self-reflection, contemplation, spiritual connection, and creative expression. This past year she also began writing her first book. 

She loves supporting others to develop their personal writing practice, supporting people as they shed layers of false self, and witnessing metamorphosis and self-realization. 

She lives in Maui and loves to breathe, chant, pray, swim naked, walk & dance barefoot, and let the juice of ripe mangoes get all over her face.

“Joy’s positive energy is contagious. A powerful speaker and trainer, Joy brings knowledge, inspiration, and caring to everything she does.” - Marci Shimoff, International Speaker, #1 NY Times Bestselling Author, Happy for No Reason

“Joy, you are so good at what you do. I love your spiritual insights. You really tap in and get clear messages for me.” – Julie Starr, Julie Starrr, Possibility Life Coaching for Women

Working with Sage is like sipping the most comforting mug of your favorite tea. She has the wisdom of an old soul, while allowing the energy and playfulness of her inner child to come through in her work. As amazing as she is, when you work with Sage, it's not about her. It's all about you.” - Elizabeth Lennon 

“Sage has been a vital teacher for me. She acts as a conduit for self exploration through her own honest inquiry into body, mind and spirit.” - Mary Schjeldahl







Realize the clarity that is your natural state.

Want to live a more intentional life? 

We become conscious when we bring the unconscious - the shadow - to light. When we see our shadows, they no longer rule our lives or our choices. We stop our automatic, programmed reactions and live with response-ability. We become empowered. We wake up. We are at choice.  

This process of liberating our hidden and shamed aspects of self is utterly profound and ultimately healing. In the presence of another, a loving presence, the healing expands. To be witnessed in our grief, anger, loneliness, restlessness, and doubt is to find freedom and be forever changed. Transformation naturally happens when we allow our emotions (energy in motion) to move. Awareness is the key to awakening. We will do this together. We will release shame or quilt as we learn to love each other and ourselves - the totality of who we are. In sisterhood, we are free.
