The Indigo Connection's 12th Annual Women's Retreat

Punderson Manor at Punderson State Park, Newbury Ohio

Announcing 2018 Retreat: Tuning-In to the Grounded Wisdom of the Body 


An Energy Makeover Event


Change is healthy. The tradition of The Indigo Connection's spring women's retreat continues in a new lakefront site at Punderson Manor.  There is both sadness and deep gratitude for how Idlwyld B&B and Lakeside have served our groups so well over the past 11 years.  Thank you Joan and Dan Barris for the many ways you nurtured us and kept us comfortable, fed and entertained. 

I have assembled a team of talented women who will be leading this very special weekend.  Our conference facilities will have a lovely terrace overlooking the lake as well as a beautiful lawn where we can enjoy campfires.

Melanie Jatsek, Registered and Licensed Dietitian, is a woman who, for years, had everyone fooled. She was young, thin, “healthy”, and studying to be a dietitian. No one knew this “perfect” girl was silently suffering an internal battle with binge eating disorder. It wasn’t until a spontaneous healing occurred—thereby eradicating the disease from her body and mind—that she was able to look back and discover all of the things she was doing and thinking, to fuel the fire of the eating disorder. Today Melanie views her experience as life’s biggest gift. She has made it her mission to share with others the missing pieces to a world of inner harmony with their food, body and health. 

Saturday Session:  Integrating the "Missing Peaces" into a Lifetime of Health  Why is it so difficult to stay on track? Author and registered dietitian Melanie Jatsek, will take you on an inner journey to discover the real reasons you failed your last diet. More importantly, she will uncover the five “Missing Peaces” to achieving a world of inner harmony with your food, body and health. Hint: It’s not what you think!  From there, we'll go deeper with a pre-lunch exercise to put her program to the test when lunch arrives.

Betsy Muller, Master Trainer of Emotional Freedom Techniques, Author and Coach will facilitate a powerful session "Love, Faith and Deeper Answers from Your Soul".  As a postmenopausal woman, Betsy had no idea that a miraculous year lay ahead as she chose to have foot and ankle reconstruction surgery followed by months of disability. Just as she learned to walk again, her husband suffered a sudden cardiac arrest, hypoxic brain injury and months of intense medical rehabilitation. Betsy discovered that true miracles requires taking care of the physical as well as the invisible. Healing required asking, receiving, taking action and daring to reach further than ever before for answers and support.  Everyone can do it.  This session will integrate 10 questions your soul knows the answers to and integrates the power of EFT, words, intuition, writing and collective group healing.  The guidance for YOUR next chapter is ready to be revealed.


Roseann Heinrich, Tai Chi Chih Instructor, will lead us as we ground and balance our energy through gentle movements.  Weather permitting, our sessions may take place on the terrace overlooking the lake or on the lawn beside the lake.
