Shift in Tuscany

September 2020

change is now



For some the Shift experience may be a deep-dive into clearing blocks and returning back to authentic alignment with self. For others it will be about opening further into possibility and vibrationally aligning with what comes next for your human experience. This time in Italy will be nourishment for your soul. There will also be chef prepared organic, vegetarian food and thoughtful excursions to compliment our work.

Our beautiful home for the week is called Cugnanello, a country estate in the center of Tuscany. The fully restored villa is 800 years old and situated in picturesque landscape of uniquely wild beauty. Think vineyards, olive groves and rolling hills! It’s an ideal landscape to support our work and play throughout the retreat.

I have been given a second chance at life. 

Before Shift I felt stuck, fat, overwhelmed and unsure about everything. I woke up everyday battling my own thoughts and spent many tearful mornings getting dressed in disgust. A good friend suggested that I reach out to Lacy. I remember that first phone conversation, I moved from tears to anger to frustration to sadness as I told her the highlights of my story. She was so patient with me, so loving and kind that I wondered if she was for real. I kept thinking how can anyone be this nice and firm at the same time? After spending a week with her on retreat I can tell you that not only is she for real but one of the most sincere and genuine people I have ever met.  

The Shift retreat was way outside of my spending comfort zone (it was outside of my everything comfort zone). I was not used to putting myself first and certainly didn't understand the energy of money like I do now after having worked with Lacy both at Shift and in Soul Care. I was afraid it wouldn't work for me and that I'd regret spending the money. I was in so much fear and yet I knew that I had to do something to change. Lacy said that I couldn't not be changed and that as soon as I said yes I would start noticing little miracles in my life. She calls it the "yes effect" and she was right. There were so many miracles that I started a journal to record them all. Now when I feel down I read through my journal to remind myself that I am supported and everything is working out for me. 

The last day of Shift I told Lacy with tears in my eyes that knowing what I know now I would have paid double. It was worth every penny and I feel like I have been given a second chance at life.

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 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. I must say, my journey getting to the Shift retreat 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.

Travel Suggestions

Check in: | Check out: COMING SOON

In the unlikely event of unforeseen events I suggest you purchase travel insurance. It can really save the day for things as small as a missed flight or as large as a natural disaster or death of a loved on.


Since the Shift retreat I’ve truly felt like a new version of myself - like I got a spiritual upgrade :) I’ve since had several difficult conversations with my parents without getting swept up in their drama and emotions. And I’ve actually been able to talk to them and see them and have a good time! I can come out the other side grounded, with my energy intact, instead of needing days to recover.

I’m also finally taking steps on a dream I’ve had for years (!!) which is to buy a house. I would not have been able to take the big steps and the hundreds of baby steps involved in this process if it weren’t for everything I learned during the Shift retreat. While it's been a little stressful and my impatience sometimes creeps in, I still feel an undercurrent of "all is well" and "omg I'm doing this" kind of joy.

I’m especially finding comfort lately in what Lacy says about desires being memories that we’re absolutely going to have in this life. It brings me so much peace, I adopted it as a belief on the spot. I think it helps my brain when it starts its loop of: Can it really be this easy? Can things really be this good? Can I really do this? Yes, yes, and yes!
