It is always good to have feedback to what we put out there. It was such a pleasure to receive this message from Andrea who was one of the women that joined us in the Hawaiian Experience Retreat. I was filled with joy and completely honored to co-host this amazing event.
I took part in Cherry and Vickie’s Hawaii Experience retreat on the Big Island in late January/early February 2017, and wow, what an experience it was! Actually, it was a whole series of totally amazing experiences.
Vickie provided us with a wealth of information about our astrological charts, which she prepared for each participant. She gave us the tools to understand the various aspects of our charts and answered a lot of questions I’d had about astrology. Her seminar on essential oils was extremely informative, and I really enjoyed learning the TRE relaxation techniques, which I am continuing to use.
Cherry’s channeled messages always amaze and inspire me. I can’t easily describe Cherry’s gift of channeling “The Ancients,” but I can describe the benefits I’ve received from them: greater levels of understanding; deeper insights into my own actions/reactions and those of others; relief from stress and fear; and both receiving and expressing profound love and joy.
In addition to Cherry’s insights which focus on our inner lives, her messages also call our attention to the magic that surrounds us in the world. That magic was on full display during our trip to Hawaii. We experienced amazing interactions with whales, dolphins, turtles, and the Earth herself. Several times during our trip, local people told us that what we were experiencing was very unusual. Twice I encountered whales who came closer to shore than they usually do, directly in front of me. When some of us went snorkeling, several pods of dolphins converged to accompany the group. Our visit to Kilauea Crater in Volcanoes National Park proved to be particularly magical. A ranger told us that the lava would be way too low in the crater for us to see. Then Cherry gathered us together, called to the Goddess Pele, and lava began to dance high above the rim of the crater. When Cherry dispersed the group, the lava subsided again below the crater rim. I felt so very privileged to have been a part of that -- and part of the entire trip.
Even the weather cooperated beautifully. On the “wet” side of the Big Island, we had only a couple light showers the first two days, then no rain for the rest of our ten-day stay. People kept saying how unusual that was, too!
There were seven of us on our Hawaii trip. It’s not easy getting seven women to agree on, well, pretty much anything, but Cherry and Vickie did a great job making sure that everyone felt very welcome and included, and that everyone’s needs were taken care of. They also demonstrated a perfect degree of flexibility, going with the flow and adjusting our schedule as events unfolded. The accommodations that Vickie found for us (two adjacent Airbnb houses) were very comfortable, and fit our needs perfectly. She handled all the trip logistics very professionally, without a hitch. We had time for sightseeing, shopping and exploring nearby beaches, in addition to our various sessions with Cherry and Vickie.
I had an absolutely fantastic time on the Hawaii retreat, beginning to end. I am now planning to attend Cherry and Vickie’s Mount Shasta retreat in June, and look forward to more retreats after that.
