JOIN THE WAIV
JOIN WAIV RETREATS
for or a day or weekend to relax, eat well, learn cutting edge ways to stay healthy, reduce stress, and feel good in your body. Learn, share, and create ideas for a healthier, happier you.
JOIN THE WAIV on May 3rd and start your journey to becoming the best you you can be. Come with a friend or come prepared to meet like-minded individuals who share your enthusiasm to explore alternative approaches to health.
During the first part of your day, Lisa and Jennifer will be discussing the foundations of energy. They will help you gain a deep understanding of:
The universal energy field, your own personal field, and your chakras.
What foods and activities support your chakras.
How to identify which of your own chakras need healing and attention. When your chakras begin to heal, your physical life will heal.
As afternoon approaches:
You will be led through a meditative movement exercise to get the blood flowing. Not only will your muscles delight in the movement, but also the blood moving into your digestive system will prepare your gut to absorb all the nutrients you will be eating at lunch.
Seasonal ingredients will highlight the meal and you will learn the specific health benefits of your foods.
After lunch we will reconvene in the Main Hall for riveting discussions:
Understanding your own personal energy field and what can disrupt it.
Naturopathic ways to balance and strengthen your field.
Muscle testing techniques to help you heal your field.
As we start to wind down our day we will move into the Meditation Library Room for:
A beautiful guided meditation to find where you have created energetic blocks that may be stagnating your health or even creating dis-ease.
A peaceful sound bath using Tibetan Singing Bowls to seal in all your hard work of transcendence and enlightenment.
Following the sound bath, stick around at the end of the retreat for parting gifts and door prizes.
We can’t wait to see you there!
Happiness and Health,
Jen and Lisa

MEET THE WAIV FOUNDERS
Jennifer Merritts, INHC, CMT
Jennifer Merritts began her work as a healer in 1997 doing massage therapy. In 2004 she opened her business, Mind Body and Soul Healing Center, in Leesburg VA where her scope of work included not only massage, but also muscle therapy and Chakra Balancing.
Since that time, Jennifer has been on a personal and professional journey, learning more alternative healing modalities to not only live her own life in peaceful harmony within the Universe, but to also share this knowledge with her clients. “To live in your body pain free and joyfully can be a challenge. But when you find the path that leads you to ease, the journey is already half over.”
Mind Body and Soul has now evolved into Mindful Body With Soul where one can find the path to health and wellness through Integrative Health Coaching, Tibetan Singing Bowls (Sound Therapy), Mayan Abdominal Therapy, Chakra Balancing, and Lymphatic Drainage. Jennifer looks forward to sharing years of healing experience with you at WAIV Retreats.
