Shift happens

 

The best and most precious gift I could have ever given myself.

I signed up for the Shift retreat in Costa Rica hoping I’d resolve some painful emotional and physical issues that had been plaguing me for well over a decade. And in a mere 6 days with Lacy’s skillful and oh so insightful and loving guidance, I truly and fully shifted. I cleared 18 years of grief and came away feeling so much lighter in my body and spirit. Darkness and despair left and light and love moved in. I’m back home now and the transformation is still with me. I know in the deepest part of me that this is a permanent and real shift. In addition to clearing my grief, through the loving support of Lacy and my beyond amazing retreat mates, I fully stepped into the magnificence of who I am. I have a new and loving relationship with myself that I have never had before. And again, it feels like a full and permanent shift. I am so at peace now in my heart, mind, body, and spirit. I am so thankful that I decided to invest in the Shift retreat. It was worth every single penny and more.

Over the years, I have worked with many highly skilled coaches, therapists, body workers and energy healers. However, none of them have been like Lacy. She is a true gift to the universe. She is a beautiful, loving, insightful, intuitive, and courageous healer and facilitator. She calls you forth into your highest self and she is not afraid to share her laser like, intuitive hits for your greater good. She is also so well resourced, drawing upon many wellness practices and modalities (Eastern and Ayurvedic) that she wove magnificently through our days. In addition to creating a safe forum for us to meditate, chant, journal, share, cry, and laugh, she also provided us daily with wellness rituals we could incorporate immediately and into our lives back home. I can say with full confidence that everyone in my group left transformed. And that is due to Lacy and the group she manifested and brought together. I will forever be grateful for this experience. It was a game changer and the best gift I could have ever given myself.

I'VE EXPERIENCED EXPONENTIAL GROWTH.

Crossing paths with you, Lacy, has altered the course of my life and was no doubt Divine intervention. I've experienced exponential growth since Costa Rica and my time with you in Bali simply affirmed all I've come to know since then... life is always happening FOR me... every moment is a co-creation between me and the very Source of ALL life... how I feel lets me know if I am energetically aligned with that Source and so it's my job to feel good - really, really good! And in our work together I've given myself the ultimate permission to do that! In one months time I will host my first photography retreat, something I've known I was meant to do for three years now. The clarity and confidence to move forward with that vision came from my work with you. I am grateful and I am so proud. I love you BIG.

LACY’S SHIFT RETREATS HAVE BEEN THOSE ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME EXPERIENCES THAT CHANGED EVERYTHING . . . AND CONTINUES TO CHANGE EVERYTHING.

For me, Lacy’s Shift Retreats have been those once-in-a-lifetime experiences that changed everything . . . and continues to change everything. Lacy puts incredible thought, planning and intention in creating her retreats, while at the same time achieving flexibility and a go-with-the-flow approach to making sure attendees’ needs are met. I attended Shift Bali after first attending Shift Costa Rica 10 months prior. During Shift Costa Rica I was able to do a deep dive into asking what it is I need in my life, and Shift Bali was where I gained clarity about what I desire in my life. For those looking to go big, go deep and see, feel and experience change, Shift Retreats are the place to begin.

I had the most profound experiences.

I had been working with Lacy for a few months when I asked if the Shift Retreat would benefit me. "Absolutely", she said. "You are so close and this will really help." Not sure what kind of help Lacy thought I needed, I was skeptical. I knew I had been searching for something missing in my life and wasn't sure where to look or how to find it. I was working with Lacy on some past relationship issues and I actually felt that I was making progress in the forgiveness department. So off I went to Costa Rica. I must say, my journey to Shift was not the smooth departure I had envisioned. But through the retreat, and with Lacy's help, I learned that the body gives us exactly what we need, that we CAN learn to love ourselves, that all we are searching for can be found inside if we know where and how to look. I came home a new person. I know people say these things, and everyone says "yeah, yeah, yeah",  but I am not the same person who showed up in Costa Rica broken, sick and in need of real spiritual help. I had the most profound experiences and was able to create the person I've longed to become. I learned the tools to stop living in the "fight or flight" arena. I learned that just because I forgave, I had anger, resentment and frustration to acknowledge. But the best part for me, was learning that "I" was the center of my universe - "I" was all I needed!

Since I've been home, my life has changed so much. I have quit the job I hated, realized my full potential, enriched my relationships with those I love and am at peace. And, fired my therapist! Lacy helped me achieve what therapy never could. If I had to do it all over again, I would only change one thing...not waited so long to discover the magic of a Shift retreat.

WITHOUT A DOUBT, A TRUE SHIFT HAPPENED.

It's always such a delight to see someone doing exactly what they are meant to do. This is exactly how I felt witnessing and participating in Lacy's Shift workshop. As a workshop facilitator myself, it was comforting to realize I was in such capable and graceful hands under Lacy's guidance. She held the space with a perfect and rare balance of grounded knowledge, compassionate wisdom and levity.

The work Lacy presents is real, deep, revealing and goes right to the heart of the matter where lasting transformation can happen. I left the workshop feeling more clear, uplifted and grounded on my path. Without a doubt, a true shift happened.

- FB, Portland


I am waking up to my life.

Shift is all about permission - Permission to feel, permission to choose, to decide, to allow, to experiment, to play, to dance, to cry, to scream, to change my mind, to laugh, to speak my truth, to sit in silence, to resist, to flow, to explore, and to let go. And, it is all okay and even more than that, it is welcome and encouraged. Because Shift is a safe space. And, it is love and perfect timing and becoming part of a magical tribe.

Honestly, I did not know what to expect when I signed up for Shift. I'd done some important work with Lacy and knew her approach resonated with me. I had never been on a personal retreat before and I was craving the experience. I dragged my feet for a while before signing up, and initially put a lot of pressure on needing this to be THE right retreat, and worried whether it would it be worth it? And, what if it didn’t change me like I needed and wanted? And then, I just took the leap and said yes.  After signing up, all that worry went away and I just knew, that for me, it would be life changing. And, it was. On every level.

When it came time for Shift, I showed up with an open heart, and Lacy blew it open even further. Through the week, Lacy loved us, pushed us, and guided us through the good, the hard, the easy and the uncomfortable. She shared her skills and her knowing and gave us full permission to take what worked for us and let go of the rest. I received tools and rituals that I carried home with me, and still use daily, which have created a beautiful bridge from the magic of Costa Rica and Shift to my life at home. These practices serve to remind me that it is all connected and we are all connected. And these tools allow me to continue my work that started the moment I said yes to Shift. 

During Shift, we had permission to fall apart, to fall back together, to pick up, to put down, to question, to experience, to feel, and to rewrite our stories. Every choice was right, and it was all information. For me, it was an end, a letting go, and also a beginning.

The Shift experience opened a whole new world of experience and beautiful possibilities and I gained far more than I even imagined. I am still amazed by how much we accomplished and how little time it took to create lasting and profound change. We stayed in a beautiful place and all of our senses were nourished and nurtured which aided our work and healing. The week was profoundly sacred and by the end, I felt so powerful and loved by the universe and my Shift tribe.  

I returned home with a deep sense of connection to myself and to the world around me. And with a profound sense of awe and responsibility for my life, my choices, my thoughts, and my words. Now that I’ve been home for a while, I remain changed, my Shift is real and deeply personal. I've noticed how calm I feel, how much less reactive I am, and how much more grounded, clear and centered I am in my responses. I am waking up to my life. I am grateful for the life changing experience of Shift and for saying yes.

I AM CHANGED.

 

When I arrived at shift, I had a lot of ideas and desires. When I left, I had no doubt that they were worth my time + energy to pursue and I had the determination and a plan to do so! There's a difference between making changes and being changed. I AM CHANGED.

- CH, Denver, CO

I can see my own strength again.

Shift was one of the very best things I have ever done for myself! Some bumps in the road of life had knocked me down, zapped my energy, drive and ambition. I had been missing some of the best parts of myself for some time unable to find my way back on my own. The meditations and conversations along with Lacy’s leadership at the workshop provided for vast change in the most loving and encouraging way. I was able to release tears that had never been set free, find clarity and release self-doubt.  The fog has lifted! My energy and awareness has returned! I can see my own strength again and remember that I have the knowledge and tools to break past those barriers if I just simply love myself enough. It’s true, change really is now. I am forever grateful.

I WAS STEEPED IN A POWERFUL ENERGY DURING SHIFT.


I have signed on to a life that is based in goodness, wholeness, truth... I was steeped in a powerful energy during Shift. There's been an incredible release of tension energy and it feels really good. The rituals I learned stayed with me, continue to support me and feel sustainable. I'm super clear on what I don't want now - I experienced an extreme amount of contrast upon returning home that has guided me. I was able to take it all in as information as Lacy teaches and I know where I'm headed.

I'VE REACHED A PLACE WITHIN MYSELF THAT SAYS I CAN DO THIS.

I'm so happy!!!! I have an audition in a couple of weeks along with a game plan for the next couple of years! As a result of our coaching sessions I have been spending time doing things I love, and feeling so productive. I've been taking walks, gardening, practicing, cleaning, cooking (my greens), learning how to build a website which I never thought I would have the time or ability to do. And spending time with family and friends. Thanks to your guidance I've reached a place within myself that says I can do this! And that everyday is a new opportunity to learn and grow. You have a gift, Lacy! Thank you for reminding me that I have the ability to choose and act!

The tools and meditations lacy is using on this retreat are intense, they are like nothing you've probably ever experienced, and they are completely life-altering. I cannot say enough about it and still I'm tongue-tied whenever I try.

I was looking for a spiritual teacher. It wasn't that I was broke or deeply unhappy or desperate in any way; I just had a sense that there was more to experience, and I wanted to go deeper. In my mind, I pictured this teacher as an Indian man with a turban. Boy, was I surprised when I realized that it was actually Lacy from Texas. I told her things I've never told anyone, and I felt so safe, so held, so seen. I felt loved, welcomed, and at home with Lacy in a way I've never felt with anyone. And she told me the truth. She told me the TRUTH. Sometimes it hurt. Sometimes after our conversations, I had to sit with that truth for hours before it rested onto my bones and - every time - healed them. I've never met anyone like Lacy. I truly have no words. The tools and meditations she's using on this retreat are intense, they are like nothing you've probably ever experienced, and they are completely life-altering. I cannot say enough about it and still I'm tongue-tied whenever I try. 

Everyone needs this work. Everyone.

Shift retreat is so impactful, effective and life-changing.

Lacy Young's Shift Retreat has done this for me: 

Opened my heart, busted down my walls, and given me the capacity to love more deeply and without limits
Enabled me to discover who I really am, beneath all the layers and labels I've accumulated over the past 44 years
Given me permission to proclaim who I am, be proud of who I am, and go BE who I am
Provided me with the tools to be a more mindful, effective and joyful mother, lover, friend, professional
Taught me how to find calm and quiet inside, when life on the outside often feels noisy and distracting

Lacy has a very special way of working with people. It is a credit to her, her deep intuition, her professional approach, and her loving persistence that the Shift retreat is so impactful, effective and life-changing. Lacy has a rare gift of completely seeing people and helping them discover what's deep within their hearts. And she does it all with a profound love and respect for each individual.

on a very deep level it feels sacred.

The last 5 years have been very difficult for me, and after a profound loss several months ago I was hurting and feeling like I needed help. When the universe aligned, to my amazement, enabling me to attend the workshop I was elated! It was the perfect thing at the perfect time. It so exceeded my expectations, every element was exactly what my soul needed. From the guided meditations and exercises to the frank and sometimes difficult discussions, I felt loved and supported by Lacy and my fellow workshop participants (friends and sisters now). I am having trouble articulating exactly what occurred for me at the workshop, because on a very deep level it feels sacred. It was something that pushed my inner self to heal, grow, and shift. I've received a beautiful gift of courage and clarity with which to move on and live my life with beautiful intention.

It feels good to be open to feeling good.

I left for my week in Costa Rica a relatively happy person with a pretty good life and an open mind, determined to take some time off from Mom and Wife and Employee to relax if nothing else...  I returned to the states a being of light and love and infinite possibility, with the sure knowledge I'm right where I need to be, I'm whole and complete, I have everything I need and it's all mine to keep. This wasn't just a fleeting experience, a bubble of precious time in another country - this was my Shift, my opening to self and source. It's mine forever.

It feels good to be open to feeling good. It feels good to find my higher self, honor my highest self. It feels good to let go of the programs, to create a dialogue with myself so I'm celebrating and remembering every day I get to choose how to live my life.

Lacy, I can't imagine doing this work with a better guide and facilitator.  You've helped me create a tool chest of Good Stuff so I can always follow my feel-good. Your love and support and ability to hold the space for us, for me, to Shift as needed was just about the best part of the trip. That and making new friends (loved ones) for life. Thank you!

I FOUND MY TRUE VOICE - LOVE AND HAPPINESS.
 

Shift Retreat provided a safe space for me to vocalize and release deep seated feelings of anger that I was wrongfully projecting on to myself and others. I found my true voice - love and happiness, and am learning how to flex and share that voice via the support I've gained through the people I met on retreat. As a result, I also finally have one of my heart's biggest desires, true love in my life.

IT FEEL LIKE I WAS GRANTED A WISH.
 

I feel so fortunate to have been a part of the Shift experience. It was so life changing! It’s crazy because things have really shifted so hugely, better than I expected. I feel like I was granted a wish --- if you come here and do this work and go all in you can have the things you want, the relationships you want, you will treat yourself better and you will be treated how you want! It has felt so special to me in that sense. I have meditated almost everyday since getting home and I feel super connected with myself and super guided. Everything is easier now. It's been incredible to no longer feel bad about things and simply be myself. I keep noticing my life and saying WOW this is happening! This is incredible!


- JL, San Francisco


SHIFT IS SO DEEPLY PERSONAL BUT SO BEAUTIFULLY AND PERFECTLY CHOREOGRAPHED.

Lacy has a gift of guiding you to your true self. She creates the space that allows you to explore, feel and find yourself again. What I witnessed and experienced while participating in Shift is so deeply personal but so beautifully and perfectly choreographed. Shift does occur! On so many levels!! The ball of anxiety that used to live in my stomach is completely gone. There is now unquestionable peace in my life. Thank you, Lacy, for sharing your gifts with me.

I found forgiveness.

 

At Shift I found forgiveness, inspiration, reconnection with myself, reasons to hope and to believe again, strength, a toolbox of meditation techniques, unconditional support for continued growth and change and a plan for the next step on my path. Lacy is an inspiring and intuitive teacher. This was a wise investment.

It happened, I shifted.

When Lacy said, “You are exactly where you need to be and you will get everything you need,” I closed the email and wondered what I had been thinking (or drinking!) when I decided to sign on for the SHIFT experience in Calistoga. I remember thinking, well, at least the scenery would be beautiful. Yes, I was, if not a total skeptic, at least highly doubtful about what could be accomplished in such a short time.  But I was so stuck that I was willing to haul myself across the country, shack up with a stranger, eat tofu and let another stranger mess around with my mind! Thus was my sorry state of affairs!

Somehow Lacy sensed that I was ready for a SHIFT, ready to shed the stories and beliefs that had been holding me prisoner in my own life. And in true Zen fashion, “when the student is ready, the master appears.” Lacy met me where I was, spoke in a language I could understand, held me tenderly in her heart and totally whacked me upside the head (in the nicest, most loving way possible!)!

To say I was surprised doesn’t even come close. To know why truths about me that I have struggled to accept for years were finally and suddenly available to me is a mystery. But it happened, in two days, in Cali-fricken-stoga, I SHIFTed. Lacy said, “You are exactly where you need to be and you will get everything you need, it’s your turn.” Now I understand. Thank you Lacy and my dear Calistoga SHIFTers. I've got this!

I was able to break long-standing habits of self-criticism and self-hatred.

Lacy Young's Shift Retreat brought me peace, healing, and an understanding of my behaviors that have caused myself so much unhappiness. Through the meditations, I was able to break long-standing habits of self-criticism and self-hatred. I gained new insight into the meaning behind actions that have hindered my emotional well-being. I am forever changed.

I got exactly what I had hoped for.


Oh Lacy's Shift retreat... I had grand expectations going in, hoping to be profoundly transformed, and I wasn't sure what that would look like, or even if it could actually happen in one weekend. It only took about a day of Lacy challenging me out of my comfort zone in the most comforting and loving way that I found what I was in need of. Presence... instead of always moving on to the next thing. Instead of thinking about the next thing (or the next or the one after that). I was in need of BEING present. I found the calm that comes from being only where I am existing in the moment. Before Shift, I was constantly moving forward. At Shift, I was still. And this stillness was full of heart bursting open with joy, gratitude filled beauty. Through our weekend together, I learned tools to carry this with me into my daily life. I've shifted. It may sound subtle, but it was profound. I got exactly what I had hoped for. I have SHIFTED and it feels so very good.

SHIFT brought me to the version of myself that I have been working toward for three decades in therapy.


In one weekend, Lacy and her leadership at SHIFT brought me to the version of myself that I have been working toward for three decades in therapy and searching for endlessly in the self-help aisle of the bookstore. I am now at a level of self love that will support the inspired and courageous decisions I want to make around my career, where I live, and my relationships— all kinds. I can already feel a bigger, brighter version of my life unfolding. Big changes ahead!

My journey is now filled with curiosity, enthusiasm, mindfulness, gratitude, and joy.

The SHIFT Retreat with Lacy Young was nothing short of transformative. I arrived with beliefs and habits that did not serve me or my family, and I left with a profound shift in perspective that is rooted in Love. All the winding roads that I’ve traveled in life, all the triumphs and moments of despair, have set me on a journey of self-discovery.  SHIFT provided a safe, sacred space to set myself free - to gently release the persistent negative voice within and step into the authentic empowerment that comes with falling in love with oneself. My journey is now filled with curiosity, enthusiasm, mindfulness, gratitude, and joy. Stumbling is no longer cause for self-loathing, but rather an opportunity to practice compassion and fortitude. And for that I am so deeply, humbly grateful!

Once SHIFT is over, it doesn’t end! The power within our group is palpable. We are the living, breathing realization of Lacy’s vision in Bali. Her powerful, intuitive guidance helped us to realize individually and collectively the Truth that we have everything we need within us. Each day, as Lacy expertly guided us through powerful processes and life-altering meditations in a space of support and non-judgment, we were bonded together in our sacred circle. As we’ve all returned back to our homes, that eternal bond just continues to strengthen.

The retreat in Costa Rica may be over, but the journey continues!

The change is real and it's mine to keep forever.

After a year of growth and change in coaching with Lacy, I was called to do more.  I knew there was a Shift retreat in my path.

I came ready to change knowing exactly what I wanted to leave behind. In total submission and empowered by my calling to attend, I offered up a generational burden from the women in my family. I vanquished it. I healed it. I closed the door on decades of pain and redefined our legacy as one of light, ease, awareness, and self worth.

The Seattle workshop setting was intense in the most beautiful way. We were housed, nay protected, in a gorgeous meeting room in the Palladian Hotel. We sat intimately in a circle on comfy cushions and poured out our souls to each other. Each person offering tenderest vulnerability and receiving unyielding love with Lacy's guidance every step of the way.  

The questions Lacy posed in preparation for and during the retreat were deep, meaningful, introspective, and truthful. I can refer back to my notes in the workbook or in my journal anytime I need to remember those moments. The meditations were powerful and evoked a chasm of emotion and visualization in my life. There is no doubt that I Shifted. The change is real and it's mine to keep forever.

If you are called to change, answer the call. Attend Shift and heal your life. Thank you from every cell in my body,

I came out with my long lost joy!

Wow, Wow, Wow!!! I am home from Shift Calistoga now for 4 days and have “re-entered” my day to day life with such calm and ease.  And believe me I was not filled with any calm nor ease before coming to Shift. Such an amazing experience to go inside and shake things up and begin to grow. I fully expected a “shift” and to come away with a nudge towards who I am meant to be.  BUT instead I came out with ME and my long lost JOY!!!  Woo-Hoo!! Yippee!! I haven’t stopped smiling from the inside. Thank you for guiding me to my true self. It has been a long journey together but so glad to finally connect on a deeper level. Love you so.

I experienced a gentle shift from effort to ease.

Before the retreat I spent much of my time making plans and trying to determine exactly what I should do next. I was working really hard and feeling anxious. During my week with Lacy I experienced a gentle shift from effort to ease. I saw how simple it can be to create my life from a place of stillness and order, to live from my heart-center and completely let go of the need to figure it all out. I feel lighter and so much more alive! Thank you, Lacy!

- AW, Dallas, TX


The change is real!

I was so ready for a big, permanent change and Shift in Costa Rica was it! During coaching with Lacy over the past two years I had many breakthroughs and I knew there was something yet to accomplish. Before Shift I was still carrying around past hurts and disappointments. My confidence level was low and I maintained at a low level of depression most of the time. During some amazing meditations led by Lacy I was once and for all able to let go and really breathe deeply for the first time in what seems like forever.

The physical manifestation has been lightness, confidence and an overjoyed since of freedom. I am continuing to meditate daily since my return. It allows me to set my intention for the day and live into my highest self with confidence and freedom. So should you consider a retreat with Lacy. Decidedly so! Learn to have the life you have only dreamed of. The change is real!

Signing up for the retreat was the first answer to the many questions I needed answers to in the life I was feeling stuck in.

If you're reading this, I suggest you take it as the second sign that you are destined to sign up for this retreat; the first sign was however you got to this page. As I hemmed and hawed over whether this would be the right forum for me, I surrendered to all the signs around me that said yes, which was a foreshadowing of what I was to learn through Lacy and what I always wanted to get better at doing - how to tap in to my gut instinct. Signing up for the retreat was the first answer to the many questions I needed answers to in the life I was feeling stuck in for a while. If my testimonial isn't encouraging enough for you, stay tuned for more signs throughout the week that will point you in the right direction to shift (pun intended) your opinion.

I now feel feel confident in my body, in the person that I am and the limitless potential that my future holds.

When the opportunity to attend SHIFT arose, I said yes knowing that I was ready, and that it was time for me stand up and live a fully engaged, joyful life. Lacy has been my guide and mentor since 2011. In that time, I've made tremendous progress towards embodying a healthy lifestyle and developing a positive self image. Attending SHIFT has galvanized this process, and with the help of this experience, I am living mindfully from my place of truth.

Through a series of mindfulness meditations, releasing exercises, reflective journaling, visualizations and intentional goal setting and I was able to orient my mind to a greater way of perceiving my life and it's limitless potential. My process was supported by a bounty of healthy and nourishing foods. This was a period of intentional detoxification for my body and spirit, and I appreciate having had a supportive and intentional space to do so. Eating a whole foods plant-based diet for the length of the 7 day retreat reset my metabolism - I left Costa Rica feeling strong, light, capable and revitalized.

Lacy designed SHIFT to incorporate so much of her personal, spiritual, and professional experience - this contributed a richness of practical tools for us to utilize in our daily lives. We created an intentional healing community that will continue supporting our process as we move forward. Strangers became kindred spirits - and with the support of 10 others, I mourned, released burdens I'd been carrying with me, and dreamt out loud knowing that dreams are mere plans that, with clear intention and action, will soon be reality. There is deep-seeded encouragement knowing that other people hear you, see you and are rooting for you to embody your greatest truth. In creating a safe space to process, release, dream and manifest, Lacy invites us to celebrate the journey of self actualization, leading us to live a fully engaged existence. I now feel feel confident in my body, in the person that I am and the limitless potential that my future holds. This has been a life altering experience, and I am eternally thankful for the opportunity to take part. The unique path to self actualization is one we all deserve to experience, and having Lacy's support, and the support of these women is truly been invaluable.

What I gained from this experience was more than I could have ever asked for.

'You know what this is? THIS is a game changer. Game. Changer.' These were the words of a fellow Shift attendee and I could not say it better myself. Lacy's Shift retreat was simply a game changer.

I arrived and didn't know what to expect. I wore make up every single day - I used it to cover myself up and never left the house without it. I didn't think anything of it until it was melting off my face from the humidity that first day. It was a mask that I never knew I was wearing. I watched my world transform around me and especially within me.

The confidence I now have was unexpected and enormously liberating. What I gained from this experience was more than I could have ever asked for. This retreat was the most beautiful gift I could have ever given myself. I feel whole and at peace.

Everyone should experience this. Everyone. Lacy, thank you! THANK YOU.

YOU HAVE DONE MORE FOR ME THAN ANY THERAPIST IN 15 YEARS.

You have done more for me than any therapist in 15 years and in such a short time! I just LOVE you!

- KB, Orinda


the most nurturing and supportive environment I have found myself in as an adult.  

When I got back from Shift and people would ask me "So how was it??" I would say "It was amazing. All I hoped for and so much more".

That is not an exaggeration. I went to Shift intending to cleanse my mind, body and spirit and to gain some new tools that I could use to maintain a sense of equanimity in my daily life at home. I wanted to climb out of the "rut" I had fallen into of habitual thinking which led to actions that were not supporting my body or who I wanted to be in this world. I was able to check those off at the end of the week.

What I also received was a deeper understanding of myself and the emotional energies that had nested in my body over the years and were keeping me tied to the actions that were not supporting my body or who I wanted to be in this world. Releasing some of those was profound.  

I knew we would be meditating a lot but the kinds of meditation we were doing were totally new to me and so, so powerful. They opened up the world of meditation as a healing practice in a whole new wonderful way.

I also came home with nine new friend as family members. The environment of trust and love that Lacy created for our week allowed us each to sink into our true selves and love be loved by everyone there. It was the most nurturing and supportive environment I have found myself in as an adult.

I found my true voice - love and happiness.
 

Shift Retreat provided a safe space for me to vocalize and release deep seated feelings of anger that I was wrongfully projecting on to myself and others. I found my true voice - love and happiness, and am learning how to flex and share that voice via the support I've gained through the people I met on retreat. As a result, I also finally have one of my heart's biggest desires, true love in my life.

I've experienced exponential growth.

Crossing paths with you, Lacy, has altered the course of my life and was no doubt Divine intervention. I've experienced exponential growth since Costa Rica and my time with you in Bali simply affirmed all I've come to know since then... life is always happening FOR me... every moment is a co-creation between me and the very Source of ALL life... how I feel lets me know if I am energetically aligned with that Source and so it's my job to feel good - really, really good! And in our work together I've given myself the ultimate permission to do that! In one months time I will host my first photography retreat, something I've known I was meant to do for three years now. The clarity and confidence to move forward with that vision came from my work with you. I am grateful and I am so proud. I love you BIG.

Without a doubt, a true shift happened.

It's always such a delight to see someone doing exactly what they are meant to do. This is exactly how I felt witnessing and participating in Lacy's Shift workshop. As a workshop facilitator myself, it was comforting to realize I was in such capable and graceful hands under Lacy's guidance. She held the space with a perfect and rare balance of grounded knowledge, compassionate wisdom and levity.

The work Lacy presents is real, deep, revealing and goes right to the heart of the matter where lasting transformation can happen. I left the workshop feeling more clear, uplifted and grounded on my path. Without a doubt, a true shift happened.

Lacy’s Shift Retreats have been those once-in-a-lifetime experiences that changed everything . . . and continues to change everything.

For me, Lacy’s Shift Retreats have been those once-in-a-lifetime experiences that changed everything . . . and continues to change everything. Lacy puts incredible thought, planning and intention in creating her retreats, while at the same time achieving flexibility and a go-with-the-flow approach to making sure attendees’ needs are met. I attended Shift Bali after first attending Shift Costa Rica 10 months prior. During Shift Costa Rica I was able to do a deep dive into asking what it is I need in my life, and Shift Bali was where I gained clarity about what I desire in my life. For those looking to go big, go deep and see, feel and experience change, Shift Retreats are the place to begin.

I've reached a place within myself that says I can do this.

I'm so happy!!!! I have an audition in a couple of weeks along with a game plan for the next couple of years! As a result of our coaching sessions I have been spending time doing things I love, and feeling so productive. I've been taking walks, gardening, practicing, cleaning, cooking (my greens), learning how to build a website which I never thought I would have the time or ability to do. And spending time with family and friends. Thanks to your guidance I've reached a place within myself that says I can do this! And that everyday is a new opportunity to learn and grow. You have a gift, Lacy! Thank you for reminding me that I have the ability to choose and act!

I FEEL SO FREE TO EXPLORE HERE.

There are a great many reasons to do this work with you, one of them is the gift to say things out loud. I have more clarity when we speak and I get to voice these things. There are big changes coming, I feel them. I feel so free to explore here, Thank you!

I was steeped in a powerful energy during Shift.


I have signed on to a life that is based in goodness, wholeness, truth... I was steeped in a powerful energy during Shift. There's been an incredible release of tension energy and it feels really good. The rituals I learned stayed with me, continue to support me and feel sustainable. I'm super clear on what I don't want now - I experienced an extreme amount of contrast upon returning home that has guided me. I was able to take it all in as information as Lacy teaches and I know where I'm headed.
