Tranquil Power is an inner knowing that you are enough just as you are.
The Tranquil Power Women's Retreat is an experiential program designed for you to decompress, detach, and let go. This retreat is an inner journey of self-love and acceptance. The determining relationship with ourselves sets the tone for all other relationships. Expanding our love for ourselves pours out to our family and community. You see the Creator as loving and kind when you genuinely love yourself.
Elevating your importance through introspection improves every area of your life, Mentally, Physically, Work, Spiritually, and Socially. As you face your shadow and discharge old emotional baggage, you are free to create the life you love. Shame and trauma can overshadow every area of our lives. We suffer when we compartmentalize our lives by denying our emotions and feelings. As we release bitterness, grudges, and resentments, we become open to Love. By changing our minds, we really can change our lives.
You will experience a renewed sense of self-trust, freedom, confidence, vigor, and afresh love for yourself and life.
The retreat is nestled in the Manistee National Forest, Hoxeyville, Michigan. A remote, quiet place to get away, unplug, relax, and let go. You are so worth it!

"This retreat is above and beyond what I had expected in so many ways. The name is perfect - It brought tranquility and peace to the unsettled places in my heart. It gave me power where I was discouraged and feeling powerless. I had numerous breakthroughs and especially benefit from all of the experiential sessions. The breathwork, the EFT, The Vision Board, the conversation - they all worked together to enable me to let go of things (even those I didn't know I needed to) and to embrace peace, and to be ready to embark on my next adventure.
Pam is top-notch. She has thought of everything someone would need to feel comfortable, safe, and well taken care of. Thank you, Pam! You've truly transformed my life. God met me here, changed me, and I am forever grateful!"

"EFT was good because you experience real-time healing with something so simple. Dancing awakened my need to reconnect with my body. It was great to spend time with other women who have also been through a lot - and grow together. Great food, spacious bathroom, comfy beds, and even a surprise weighted blanket! I gained calmness, self-confidence, and awareness about needing to reconnect with my body. I am less anxious and feel more powerful. Pam, thank you for being such a kind and generous host. You provided a space for me to learn about myself. I am hopeful again and excited for my future. This retreat was perfect for me."
Brianna, Grosse Il, MI
"Loved the vision boards. So fun! I loved the meditation. I had not done that before but now love it. I liked the blindfolded dance. I felt comfortable with all the ladies. I feel more self-assured and empowered, and feel like I can go into my "Real" world and change things. This place is amazing. I have laughed more than I have in a long time. I've relaxed in a way that has been missing in my life for a long time. Thank you, Pam, for such a great getaway."
Kayla, Big Lake MN
"What a weekend! Where to begin - new ways with breathwork, meditation, singing bowls, using affirmations - that's the tip of the iceberg. Even better than my new skills and practices to keep myself healthy and balanced, the new friendships! It's so meaningful to me that Pam set up the retreat and also is just the type of person - that we all felt safe to be ourselves. So I got to know 3 really wonderful people quite well in only 3 days! Love my new friends! I received new calming breath exercises. There is a great deal to reflect upon in terms of how I see and feel about myself to access my clarity. I came wanting not only an experience that would help me change up some things in my life, but I also wanted what I learned to be based on data."
Sandy, Grand Rapids, MI
"What a gift! Thank you for assembling and hosting this wonderful retreat. I laughed, I cried, I danced, I walked, I created art, I walked, and I made new friends. Thank you! I have never had home-cooked meals - one after another made for me. I tried new food. The zucchini brownies were yummy! I had a breakthrough to get back to me and my voice. A return to my core beliefs that had gotten blurry. Hope and a toolkit I'll take with me. I enjoyed the retreat space in the basement because everything had a purpose and was available during downtime for us to play with. I am leaving with a clearer vision." Jodie - Columbus OH
"Pam's Paradise has recharged a tired soul. The "magical meals" prepared with love were amazing. I highly recommend turning older here for your next birthday!! I feel ready and excited to conquer 58. I slept like a baby. Every need was anticipated. I am recharged and ready to tackle life." Laura - Euless, TX
"This retreat was a time for cleansing and a "reset." I was able to release negative self-criticism and develop greater acceptance. I did not realize it, but I also had some grief that needed to be addressed. I was able to "sit with the grief" during the breathwork and the prompts to let go of negative things. The food was over the top! I feel rested and recharged! I am also blessed to have my new "sister!" Thank you, Thank you! Sincerely," Christine - Davision, MI
"Thank you so much for all the care and consideration you have put into everything. It's been a beautiful weekend in a beautiful space. Everything was presented as described and led to a greater awareness of who I am. The breathwork was most important, but all the activities were beneficial. The stay was very comfortable, and all the food was very good." Rhoda - Gobles, MI
"Thank you so much, Pam, for hosting an amazing weekend! I so appreciate your efforts to feed me gluten-free & all the other dietary restrictions that I have while I heal my "leaky Gut." Your energy & love for your guests is contagious and will be a catalyst for us to forth and love our family, friends, and new people too! Best wishes for your business to explode!!" Louanne

"A Time for Renewal. Before the retreat, Pam sent an email with a questionnaire to prepare for the Vision Board. This gave me a good feeling about the retreat, as I had to think about things that were important to me. I left work early to head up to the retreat house. It was a beautiful day and the drive was a nice time of solitude for me. I work in the mental health field and encounter troubled souls all day, so getting some time to think is a good thing. I arrived at the retreat house, which is nestled in the Manistee National Forest. I immediately felt peace and calm there. Pam was a gracious hostess, showing me to my room and giving me a tour of the house. After some time, the other guests arrived. The retreat allows for four ladies, and we all hit it off well. After everyone got settled in, Pam provided a tasty and healthy dinner. Treats and snacks were also available during the weekend. On the Friday evening session, we were led in an exercise to help us to release any negative thoughts and develop healthy self-esteem. We were encouraged to release old patterns of self-doubt and express forgiveness of self and others. This was a time of empowerment. Tapping, deep breathing, and other modalities were utilized during this time. I was deeply moved by my own response to these exercises and felt very "nurtured." Pam allowed us to express ourselves freely. On Saturday we worked on our Vision Boards. Creativity flowed freely as we assembled our future plans and dreams. Later we participated in free movement to music, dancing, and laughing. I appreciated a richness in the joy of friendship with these women, who soon became friends. We shared our hopes and our tears. We talked about a hopeful future while promoting positive ideas.
I would like to say something about Pam as our hostess. Each of the meals were absolutely delicious and made with vegetables from her garden, with healthy eating as a foundation. She considered allergies and any personal preferences throughout the weekend. The conversations at the table were encouraging. Pam maintained a Godly sanctuary of blessing and peace.
This was a good time for me to release some deep grief that I was carrying. Working on the Vision Board allowed me to think about my values and make some new goals for my life.
I highly endorse this retreat for any lady who needs some fresh air and a new perspective.
All in all, I could not have asked for a better retreat if I tried!"
Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Social Worker/Psychotherapist
"I hoped for a breakthrough or two, but I had so many I can't count them all, but I journaled them! Also, the accommodations, food, company - all of it was beyond what I've experienced at a retreat or anything like this before. The EFT, The Tuning Forks, The Breathwork, The talks, The Vision Board, Pam's Book, I loved it!! The experiential sessions helped me to break through to new ground. Thank you so much! Very comfortable stay. I can get anxious, especially with new places and new overnight surroundings. Super comfortable. Thank you for your acceptance and non-judgmental way. " LH

A few things to bring to the woman’s retreat are:
Comfortable clothes, sweats, yoga pants, shorts, etc., are recommended. We will be stretching, dancing, and doing breathwork while you are lying down, so there is no need for any dress clothes. You may bring a sweater and a pair of slippers—pack light.
If you have a favorite creamer for your coffee or something special you like to drink, like sparkling water, juice, pop, etc., you may bring that.
Curiosity and an open mind, ready to experience all parts of you, the good and the shadow. A sense of expectancy that you will have a breakthrough with whatever area of your life that concerns you at this present time.
Courage to try new things, and let go of insecurities, baggage, grudges, hurts, and fears.
The retreat is a Judgement Free Zone where you can be yourself without pretense or need for adornment. There is no need for makeup, curling iron, or hot rollers as this is not a high fashion retreat. Of course, you may bring them if you can’t live without them. This retreat is an inner exploration of your beauty and worth. You will go on a journey that will probably bring a few tears, sighs, and laughs. You will be celebrated for the magnificent person you already are.
If you have a joke or two and any magazines you want to bring for the vision board workshop, that would be fine. Also, find a fantastic photo of yourself looking radiant and happy to put on your vision board. You can bring several pictures of you smiling.
