Hi y'all! I'm Cat McElveen. I'm an Integrative Life Coach, modern mystic and spiritual guide. I hold certifications in NLP Therapy, 800+ Hours in registered yoga trainings, and meditation & breathwork certifications. I guide spiritually connected, sensitive and visionary souls who are ready to deepen their awakening journey. I have facilitated many retreats in both the US and abroad, bringing an easeful and open feel to my retreats that makes retreatants feel welcome and safe. The powerful breathwork, meditation & movement practice that I am bringing to the Radiant Heart Retreat is the practice that has totally transformed my life. After living in constant anxiety for 24 years, I was exhausted by my own pain. My fear, my total abandonment of my self, my obsessive people-pleasing and trying to live up to everyone's expectations. I was at the end of my rope. Then - I found Kriya yoga, breathwork, and somatic work. In India, I learned sacred wisdom about the mind, body and soul. I learned that my limitations that frustrated me so were simply conditioned programs lodged in my nervous system and my subconscious mind from years of absorbing ideas, experiences, and energies from societal, parental, and collective forces. I learned that I am capable of healing my soul through working with my subtle energy and my mind, in collaboration with God. My awakening process has not been easy, but it is the best decision I have ever made. I live consciously and deeply, with more trust in life and myself. I have the tools to clear old stories, heal my nervous system, and bring myself more peace and clarity. In this process, I have rediscovered my own power. At Radiant Heart, I hope to activate your own process of deep psychic and somatic healing, too.

This is totally normal and completely okay! Our facilitator, Cat, has been running retreats for years and has supported many retreat first–timers through this experience. You will not be the only one who has never been on retreat before, or doesn’t know anyone there. By the end of the retreat, you will have made lifelong friends. Doing something new that pulls us out of our comfort zones is part of a conscious life, and once you arrive, we will make you feel right at home.
Warm, sunny, GORGEOUS! You are in for lots of Vitamin D sunshine medicine, warm breezes, and gorgeous Colorado bluebird skies.
All dietary needs and food allergies will be accommodated by our retreat chef. All meals will be gluten–free and have dairy free options. Other food allergies and restrictions will be accommodated as well. If you have any medical needs, please discuss these with Radiate Retreats and Cat by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You are required to bring your own medications. If you need anything to be refrigerated, please let us know!
This retreat is for everyone and anyone. Come as you are! Whether you have been meditating for years or never sat on a meditation cushion, I will provide gentle and transformational instruction into the specific meditation technique we will be practicing over the retreat weekend. The breathwork practices are very powerful, and anyone can do them. You will be supported no matter what “level” you are at – in truth there are no levels!
