Located in the Niagara escarpment of Creemore, Sequel Inn is a 50-acre stylish estate with stunning landscapes that boasts a 175-year-old T-shaped barn and luxurious Inn accommodations. Sequel Inn boasts beautiful, well thought out spaces; from our guest suites, to the great room you enter. With a touch of Scandinavian influence, the textures and warmth are all here.  We have brought the outdoors in, with local restored barn board features, reclaimed wood furniture to the luxury bedding and peaceful rooms you lay your head. Our guests are always in for a treat when Eric te Boekhorst, Chef at the inn, prepares your farm to table breakfast with eggs from our “Chick Inn”.  Our gardens are full of organic vegetables that also adorn your plate. Walk through the forest, by the riverside or swim in our saltwater pool. Sequel Inn is a restful, rejuvenating space to enjoy while being in retreat.

What: 

When we are struggling with a disease, pain, loss, or psychological issue, we spend our time looking for the answers without – looking for a pill, seeking out experts, “googling it” or scanning Instagram and Facebook searching for an answer to what will heal us. Although we can find some answers from outside of our being that can help, we have forgotten how to go within to discover the answers that we hold within and that are specific to us.

This intensive is an opportunity for you to remember the innate knowledge that lies within you to heal your body, energy bodies, mind and soul. We all hold trauma imprints whether from our own lifetimes or from those of our ancestors held in our genetic material. These imprints can create obstacles and blocks to clearing and healing at deeper levels and left unchecked can result in symptoms on the physical, physiological, energetic and mind levels. Janina Fisher, a leading expert on healing from Trauma, reminds us that trauma survivors have, “Symptoms instead of memories”. Our symptoms are the ways that our inner Self compassionately alerts us to what is going on deep inside. The symptoms are not the issues, they are simply the signals letting us know that there is deeper work to be done.

In this Intensive, you will be given the tools and guidance to dive deep inside you, revealing new truths, hidden wisdom and paths to healing that are co-created from both within and without. You will discover the powerful impact that you can have on your own health and wellness, that of your lineage and the collective by applying some simple tools, “In the right direction, over time, with enthusiasm and conviction” to change your patterns, unblock your stuck places and move into healing.
