A gazillion years ago, like, when I was in the first grade,  I met and fell in love with this sweet little blonde with the sweetest blue eyes – and I have never stopped.  We have shared love and loss and love and loss.  We have cried together, bitched together and lord knows we have laughed ALOT.  Through it all our love for each other has remained without conditions.  She is my sista from another mista for sure!  I have said many times over the last 10 years that I could feel it in my bones that she and I were destined to do something amazing together and the Release Retreat is only the beginning!

Marriann and I are super excited to have Allison McKee facilitate a brief Desire Map workshop at the Retreat on May 2nd  ….  This is what Alli had to say about her journey and about our Retreat:

“I am Allison McKee. Wife and mother of three.  A previous non-athlete who rejoiced when Grade 10 Physical-Education was over, could graduate with all requirements and never had to wear a gym strip or smell a locker room again.

Today, I am Allison McKee. Wife and mother of three. AND Owner/Operator of six year old Body Integral Fitness, Health and Wellness in Claresholm, AB. A gym and studio where I also work as Personal Trainer, Nutrition Consultant, Group Exercise Instructor, Lifestyle and Wellness Coach, Speaker, Presenter and Desire Map Facilitator. I wear a gym strip as my daily wardrobe and the smell of locker room means the smell of challenge and success. I ran the Boston Marathon and many other marathons, half marathons and shorter distance races. I have competed in triathlon and duathlon. I have led teams of Spartan athletes to finishes in multiple Spartan Obstacle Races.

I don’t subscribe to methods that will have my clients’ bikini ready in 30 days. Or to get rock hard abs in 15 days. Or even to lose weight by removing these 5 foods. My goal is to empower and inspire and motivate my clients to lead healthy lifestyles that will inevitably spill over into all other areas of their lives. I believe that when you FEEL fantastic about your physical vehicle, there is positively no stopping what you can do in other life areas.

Getting really clear on how you want to FEEL in ALL areas of your life is one of the most effective strategies for goal setting that you can employ. When you have clarity on how you want to FEEL, it will affect all the decisions and choices that you make. From the groceries you buy to the art on your walls. From the relationships you entertain to the business decisions you make. Knowing how you want to FEEL will enable you to set goals with soul. It is a fact that you are never truly chasing the goal that you have set but in are in fact chasing the feeling that comes as a result of having accomplished that goal. Getting crystal clear on how you want to FEEL is the most potent form of clarity you can have.

I am so excited to come and speak and work with you at the Release Retreat. There is nothing more empowering and moving than a group of woman in a metamorphosis. I will bring to you The Desire Map. The theory behind the Desire Map is to discover how you want to FEEL in all areas of your life. We often tell ourselves that we will FEEL happy, excited, successful, beautiful and all kinds of other feelings when we achieve our goals. However, the key is to discover how you want to FEEL first and then to set your goals from that space. Knowing how you want to FEEL is the most potent form of clarity you can have in your life. Knowing how you want to FEEL will help you release all of the things you thought you needed to be, do and have that don’t line up with YOUR Core Desired Feelings. Let’s Release old feelings, patterns and beliefs and learn how to set some goals with soul!”
