Create Your Reality Retreat

Learn how to Become a Conscious Creator of your Reality

“What we think is what we become” - Buddha

Science and spirituality are now showing us that we create our own realities through our thoughts, whether we are conscious of it or not. Many of us have been unaware of this power and have been reacting to life as if on “auto-pilot”, creating our reality "unconsciously". Our thoughts create emotional responses, which create vibrations in our energy, from which we attract our experiences. When we become aware of this, we can consciously choose different thoughts, creating a different reality, a reality of our choice. This is called "creating consciously". As the creators of our own life, we can design a life that serves our highest good and the highest good of all. We can raise our vibrations and attract our life experiences through a higher frequency. “Future medicine will be the medicine of frequencies” - Albert Einstein We are souls on an evolutionary path, here to experience all that life has to offer!

Are you clear about what you want? Do you want to live a life filled with purpose and contentment? Do you want to wake up every day excited to design a life YOU love? Join Billie Lynn Hillis, Sherry Quail and guest Oracle Reader Lesley Rodrigues for this two-night retreat that will offer a transformational experience in a tranquil and sacred space.

Sherry Quail

Holistic Health and Wellness Coach & Shamanic Reiki Therapist

Sherry is a certified Holistic Health and Wellness coach as well as Shamanic Reiki practitioner who apprenticed under the Co-Founder of Gaia Wellness, Billie Lynn Hillis. Sherry owns her own Holistic Health and Wellness Coaching business (Organic Roots Holistic Health) and is honored to be partnering with Gaia Wellness to offer services that unite holistic nutritional coaching and energy work in order to deeply connect with clients to provide a truly transformative experience.

Sherry is passionate about creating a safe space for clients to step into their power, speak their truth and honor themselves completely. Sherry also focuses on accountability and transformational results. She will assist you to identify your goals and what action steps are required to get you to where you want to go. She specializes in coaching those who have lost sight of their health and are ready, willing and open for positive change in their life.

For many years, Sherry struggled with mental health and weight issues. She consulted endlessly with doctors who prescribed medication after medication and nothing seemed to work. After a long 10-year battle with little relief, Sherry had reached a point of total hopelessness in her life and knew something needed to change. During her research, she stumbled upon Holistic Health and nutritional theories and started changing her diet in order to beat depression. Within months, Sherry saw incredible results and within a year, was a completely different person. She had lost over fifty pounds and her depression and anxiety had almost completely subsided. When she experienced the results and benefits of holistic health and nutrition, she knew it was her life’s purpose to share this with others and help as many people as she could to experience the same happiness, strength and freedom. Sherry received her certification from The Institute of Integrative Nutrition and is now a certified Holistic Health and wellness coach.

Sherry’s work uses a combination of nutritional theories and principles, gentle coaching techniques and energy healing such as reiki and sound therapy. These techniques are individually customized, allowing Sherry to truly connect with clients creating sustainable, long lasting transformation from within. This is Holistic Health, feeling strong and healthy in the mind, body and spirit. Creating shifts in the emotional, physical and mental bodies will allow for clients to create new daily habits that facilitate a happier and healthier lifestyle. When you find health and happiness within, the entire world begins to shift outside of you. Holistic Health and Wellness is a journey, and it would be my pleasure to walk beside you every step of the way.
