The 2016 Retreats will be the best year yet with phenomenal programming!

The Chakras are the main energy centers in our subtle body. They are the openings for life energy to flow into and out of our aura. Their function is to vitalize the physical body and to bring about the development of our self-consciousness. Each chakra is associated with certain physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual interactions. The Chakras are a perfect blueprint for personal growth and development.

No prior experience with the chakras required.
Retreats are for both beginners and the more experienced.

Location and Lodging:
The 2016 retreats will be held at the The Shalom House 1872 Shalom Drive West Bend, WI. A beautiful, peaceful, and inviting country setting less than an hour from Milwaukee and less than 2 hours from Madison and Chicago. On 12 acres of the Kettle Moraine Forest with a meditation garden, nature trails, fireplace, and more! The Shalom House has shared rooms (2-4 in a room) and shared bathrooms. Down the road is a beautiful nature preserve and a gorgeous garden walking labyrinth is close by. For more info: http://aquietplacetobe.com/

The retreat center is located in Southeast Wisconsin. The Shalom House can be reached by Highway 45 or 41. The closest airport is General Mitchell International (Milwaukee) at 60 miles away. You could then rent a car or take a taxi or shuttle service to the retreat center:
http://www.mitchellairport.com/ground-transportation/.  Traveling from Madison, Minneapolis, Chicago, or Indianapolis and don't want to drive long distance or don't want to drive in the snow? The Amtrak also comes into Milwaukee, WI. The Milwaukee Airport Amtrak station is about 50 minutes from the retreat center.  You could then take a taxi or shuttle service to retreat center: http://www.amtrak.com/home. A number of women have utilized this option and were very happy not to have to drive and deal with traffic and could start their relaxation before they even got to the retreat!

The December Retreat and Winter in Wisconsin:
A number of women have taken the Amtrak into Milwaukee or flown into Milwaukee General Mitchell Airport and then took the shuttle service to the retreat center to avoid driving in potential winter weather. We have been blessed with no snow and decent traveling weather for all of our past Winter Solstice Retreats and have never had to cancel a retreat. If we were to have extreme winter weather or a blizzard, then the retreat may be postponed, cancelled, or rescheduled. In the case of winter weather, some women have traveled a day early (Thursday) to the area or arrived earlier on Friday and others have planned to leave a day later (Monday).

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner on Saturday and brunch on Sunday are included as part of the retreat. Food is local, healthy, fresh. and mostly organic. Bread products are gluten and wheat free. There are vegetarian and meat options. Food served is family style. We do not serve vegan meals at this time and at past retreats vegans and individuals with numerous food allergies have brought their own food.   

Chakra Intensive Groups:
Our retreats are small with lots of personal attention. There will be a maximum of 12 women. Our previous retreats have included women from age 18 up to age 75. Women have come from Maryland, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Indiana, and Illinois. Group experience includes chakra theory, discussion, guided meditation, personal growth and healing exercises, intuitive development, movement, music, aromatherapy, consultation, feedback, guidance, and more! An example of some of the things we will explore in the Chakra groups include:

-Root Chakra (foundation, trust, security, grounding)
-Sacral Chakra (relationships, creativity, clairsentience)
-Solar Plexus (personal power, self-esteem, healing negative emotions)
-Heart Chakra (love, forgiveness, self-love, empathy)
- Higher Heart (serving humanity, healing, compassion)
-Throat Chakra (communication, expression)
-Third Eye Chakra (intuitive development, seeing your life clearly)
-Crown (connection to Divine, higher consciousness, spirituality, past lives)
-Transpersonal & Subpersonal Chakras (connection to mother earth, advanced spiritual technologies)

What should I bring to wear?  The retreats will be very laid back and relaxed. We will also have some movement aspects to the retreat. If the weather permits, we will also have some outdoor activities. Please dress comfortably.....yoga pants, sweatpants, PJs are encouraged! Please also bring layers.....long sleeves, sweatshirts, etc.

I'm a little nervous and have never done anything like this before. The retreat program is designed to accomodate beginners or pros. Many women who attend our retreats have never attended a retreat before. Some are brand new to spirituality and wellness. Others have much experience and have attended many retreats. We can all learn from each other! We will make you feel at home and do whatever we can to make your experience phenomenal!  There will be a mixture of group time, activities, and inner self time. The retreat facilitators and the retreat center staff are very laid back, open-minded, considerate, and will make you feel comfortable and welcomed :)

Who comes to these retreats? Women have attended our retreats ranging in age from 18 to 75. Women have come from Maryland, Minnesota, Delaware, North Dakota, South Dakota, Missouri, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin.  Most of the women comes by themselves and sometimes participants bring a friend or family member with them. Some of the reasons women decide to attend a retreat include: to get away and focus on themselves, to learn more about themselves, to learn more about the Chakras and other metaphysical/spiritual topics, personal growth, spiritual development, to experience healing, to meet other like minded women, to shift their consciousness and expand awareness, and to learn and experience something new.

Testimonials from Christina's previous Chakra Retreats:

"The retreat was by far the best thing I had done for myself in a very long time. I went into the weekend with an open mind and left with an open heart. I left feeling an unbreakable bond among the women on the retreat. Christina is an extremely gifted person with an abundance of knowledge when it comes to a healthy mind, body and soul.  She incorporates a variety of chakra exercises and techniques during the weekend to introduce each guest to something new. Her holistic approaches to well-being can be added to anyone's 'toolbox for life'. My feeling of connection and unity among the group was very powerful. In addition my feeling of connection and unity within myself was even more powerful. The retreat center inside and out was very comfortable and homey. All details of the experience were thought through for a truly unforgettable experience. The hardest part is making the commitment to put yourself first and I'm confident you will not regret it.".....Nicole in Wisconsin 2015

"At the heart of universal sisterhood there is a healing mystery that has sadly been all but lost in our modern era. Caught up in our daily lives and living in separateness most find it difficult to fathom how a group of women, strangers to each other, could connect in deep, meaningful ways that can have a life-changing effect. However, through the work of Christina Wilke-Burbach and Mind, Soul and Self, that is exactly what is happening." - H. Newberry in Iowa 2015

"A note of gratitude for the unique and resonating experience having attended the Women's Autumn Equinox Chakra Retreat.  My granddaughter and I shared the experience together. While coming from very different perspectives, it was a rich and rewarding time to share. There were several modalities each providing a unique opportunity to explore our inner being. The setting was beautiful, the staff delightful, and the participants, each there on their own journey, a wonderful group of women. I would encourage anyone seeking a time to explore, expand, or venture into themselves, this well planned and renewing program.  You will love it!....Karen in Wisconsin 2015

"End of summer retreat was life changing for me. At the end of the weekend I felt like I had been friends with the other women for years. Dr. Christina and her Mother Sandy took such good care of us. The massage, acupuncture and crystal healing was fabulous as well as the wonderful women performing those services. I believe each one of us left on Sunday with answers we were seeking. The house was beautiful. The food delicious. I cannot wait to go back next year. I have been telling my friends we need to go next year. I highly recommend Dr Christina's retreats!".......Dawn in Wisconsin 2015

"This retreat did wonders for my mind and my soul. It provided me with a wonderful connection to other women! Amazingly it felt as if I had known them forever, even though we had just met. As a fairly reserved  and private person, I found myself able to open up to these like minded souls as easily as I would a long time friend. The services and activities gave me a renewed sense of purpose and wonder. Many of the things I learned, I know that I will carry on into my daily life and continued journey. I would highly recommend this to anyone, whether one goes with a group of friends or individually. I strongly believe participants will create new connections, be refreshed, and leave with a new found peace to carry them along their journey, wherever the road may take them! Thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity!"....Athena in Wisconsin 2015

"From the moment I entered through the door, I sensed something was about to change.  A group of women, all from different walks of life came together to be divinely lead through a whirlwind transformational experience. None of us knew what was in store,  but trusted the process. I left knowing that even though the last three days were behind me, the experience will be with me for a lifetime. I was glad I traveled to Wisconsin for this opportunity to get in touch with myself again. I have missed her.".....
Cynthia in Illinois 2015

" I want to thank each of you for a wonderful weekend. I'm glad that the seven of us were on the "train" together as we set off on our journey through the chakras.  I enjoyed travelling the main route and dipping into all the excursions along the way. Your individual perspectives into the different aspects we explored were insightful and made me stop and think. Special thanks to Christina who brought us all together. Your dedication to sharing your spiritual knowledge is inspiring and much appreciated. So, until we meet again ... zip up those capes, engage your inner bubble, and secure your mirrored bubble. This train is ready for anything as we continue on our journey. Namaste."....Linda from Wisconsin 2015

"Christina...Where can I start? How do you put in writing the feelings I have experienced over 3 short days? Your retreat has blessed me with brighter eyes, a sparkling heart, a glistening soul, ?and beautiful women I will be friends with for life!  Your retreat is life changing and I will never forget what you have brought to my life! Miss you already!".... Tammie from Wisconsin 2015

" Dr. Christina you rock! Thank you for shining your light so that we all may see the path we have set."....Sheila from Illinois 2015

"Everything feels different in what used to be my "real" life.  I'm aware now of my own energies and those around me, and as a result, work and home are very pleasant places to be.  I highly recommend this experience to anyone who has found themselves reading this recommendation.  If you are hesitating, it is worth the leap of faith!  Christina is a master facilitator, and the experts she invited are amazing.".....
Bonnie S. Minnesota 2014

"Although I was really anxious about coming, I am so grateful I did.  I met so many wonderful women (including Christina and her family) who I felt so much support from.  It's only been a few days since the retreat ended but I already feel like such a lighter person.  I have always struggled with negative feelings and emotions which has led to pretty severe self confidence issues.  During this retreat, I was given a lot of practical tools in which to keep the "trash thoughts" out of my head and have seen the results in the past few days.  Another thing that made the retreat so wonderful was how open and warm Christina was to everyone in our group.  She never judged anyone for anything that was said and gave a lot of helpful support to others. I also have to say Christina's mother and sister also said several really encouraging things to both my sister and I and I really appreciate it.  I would definitely recommend this retreat to every woman I know.  EVERY woman could use a week-end like this!!".......Hilary K. Madison, WI 2014

hristina, you are one of the most incredible people I have ever met. Frankly, every day of my life will be different and better because of the changes you helped bring about in my life in this retreat.  How can 2 words -'thank you' - begin to cover it! The woman I was before the retreat and the woman that left this beautiful retreat are very different -- in the best and deepest possible ways.  I made incredible connections and had life altering experiences that I know with absolute certainly will be with me always.   I am so grateful to Christina, who is a bundle of high energy, personality++, deep knowledge, and FUN.  This was simply an outstanding retreat.".....Kathy from Appleton, Wisconsin 2013

 "This was my second time attending one of Christina's retreats, and just like the first one I had a great time!  Christina and Sandy are so warm and inviting, truly wonderful women! Thank you for all you do!!!!! Christina does a great job of walking you through everything, answering questions, and really listening to what everyone was saying. You get a "workbook"  filled with tons of information and everything that we had talked about with Christina, it's a great tool that you get to take home with you. The meals were fantastic!!! A big THANK YOU to Elise, April, Jen, and Brenda!!! Thank you for your time and knowledge!!!! The sessions with these women were amazing! Meeting the other women who were attending the retreat was great, such big hearts in all of them! The Shalom House is so unique and the quietness of it really feels good, it's so nice to get away from the noise of everyday life.  This is such a great  learning opportunity, you can really let yourself open up and not feel judged by anyone. I always leave feeling energized, intrigued, and smiling! Thank you!".......Amanda R. Wisconsin Dells 2014

"In a time where we are bogged down with electronics and the need to constantly be in the know, it is sometimes critical to our well-being to get away from it all. Dr. Christina Wilke-Burbach offers a once in a lifetime experience to do exactly that – get away from it all and reconnect to yourself as well as other like-minded, amazing women. I have attended the retreat, twice, by myself, and I found it to be exactly what I needed at that moment in time. Both experiences were unique as each had a different set of amazing women who I treasure to this day. Christina and her co-facilitator, Sandy, welcome you with open arms. In a safe space of no judgment, you can share your life and know that you won’t be condemned. I highly recommend the retreat to any woman who is looking for an opportunity to get away, reconnect with herself and de-stress."...Tina C., Iowa. 2014

"I truly enjoyed my time on the retreat,  I got to meet some truly amazing women and learned a lot from them and from Christina.  I enjoyed all the activities that were set up for us.  I had a blast staying up late and just laughing, it felt like a sleepover back from when I was a kid.  Thank you again for sharing all your knowledge that prepared me for my new journey in life with a new outlook on things.  And, both you and your mom are awesome cooks! The food was delicious!"....
Kari, Wisconsin 2013

I had the pleasure of attending the Women’s Summer Solstice Chakra Retreat this past weekend. What a refreshing experience! The Shalom House was beautiful, the food was delicious and the women were wonderful. I was captivated and inspired as twelve women came together and shared their personal life experiences without knowing each other prior. Christina is a very talented woman and a strong leader. I came looking for answers and left with much more. I encourage anyone going through a difficult or transitioning time in their lives to take part in one of Christina’s upcoming wellness retreats. I will be coming back!”....
Lauren 2013

"I feel more connected than I have for a very long time.  I feel hopeful and less overwhelmed.  I thank you all for that.  Thank you so much Christina for creating an environment where women can come together and form such strong bonds.  And thank you Sandy for raising such a wonderful woman"......Fiona P. Illinois June 2014

"Just want to Thank you again for an awesome weekend! We all really had a lovely time and will for sure get in contact with you again for stuff that arises in the future.  We all got a lot out of it!".....Cori R. Dec 2014 

"What a spiritually uplifting experience.  I learned more than I ever expected I would - not only about the content advertised but more about myself.  I thought that the instructors worked very well and complimented each other nicely.  Not only on a personal level but on a professional level.  Your talents all shown through and allowed us to leave full of love and strength.  WOW, I really can not express how much I enjoyed all of you."

"Was enjoyable and informative. Felt wonderful healing energy and definite realignment of chakras. Wonderful group of ladies and energy.  Must give all facilitators a 10 out of 10 rating. Made me feel very welcome. Were all very personable and supportive. Good feedback and advice. Felt very compassionate and caring energy from all and a genuine need to make sure thoughts and ideas were conveyed without confusion or misunderstanding."

"Christina was extremely thorough.  She was well-educated on the topics as well as having the ability to explain her topics.  Being a beginner and walking in cold, I wouldn't have asked for a more soothing and friendly host......with tons of tons of energy.  I need people like this in my life."

"I feel very blessed that I had the opportunity to get away from my life for a weekend to
focus on me. Many things I learned this weekend were confirmations of things I already knew and was already working on, but it was good to learn that I’m on the right path."

"I had an amazing experience! It changed my life in many ways, I have been more aware of things using my intuition and energy. I got more out the retreat than I expected. I felt so relaxed and amazed of how neat the experience was, once in a lifetime. The activities we all got a say in everything that we talked about and even gave me a different perspective on my own life. And even the topics.. I knew it was meant to be for me to be there. Definitely worth it because I got so much out of it! I would definitely go to more in the future if I could."

"I don't even know if I can put in to words just how fantastic Christina is! She has such a way of making you feel welcome and comfortable. I loved the way she had all the information put together for you and made it so easy to understand. She explained everything really well and answered any questions anyone had. Christina never judges anyone, and is willing to share things with everyone too. All of the activities she led were easy to follow and she didn't rush through any of them, if anyone needed a break or if some  one wanted to go off and kind of do their own thing, she was totally fine with that. The group activities and topics all meshed really well together. You can relate to one person if not everyone in one way or another and having the chance to speak to others who understand you and won't judge you, just brings you closer together. I think it was great to be able to let some feelings out, we laughed, cried, and nodded in agreement about issues we all have or have had. Never did I feel pressured in to doing something. Christina's personality her manor really makes you want to listen to her and try everything she is offering to you. 

"I don't know what else I would like to see, I loved everything about it. I thought that since it was all about learning the Chakra Systems, everything was covered really well. We went home with really great tools and information about our Chakras and how they work. The different meditations and different types of healing is all so interesting. It has made me want to just absorb every single bit of information I can about spirituality, intuitiveness, healing, past lives, and so much more! I want to learn everything I can, I just need to find a place to start! 
I just want to say what a wonderful experience this was for me, I am so happy to have made great friends who are like minded and want to learn as much as I do. I definitely want to do another retreat with all the wonderful, amazing, beautiful, and loving women again!  Everything was great, I wouldn't change anything at all. Thank you Christina for everything, I have a long path in front of me and I am excited to see what I find on it! With out your help I may never have made the choice to take this path in the first place."

"Christina... what a sweet woman! She genuinely cared about each of us, and made me feel special with her interest in helping me answer my questions, etc. Yoga with Shawn - It was very relaxing, in fact I think I fell asleep for a bit during the last part-meditation. The intuitive readings were amazing. The readings were right on.  I was skeptical, at first.  Out of curiosity, I wouldn't mind receiving readings from them in the future.  I truly couldn't believe their accuracy.  They were blatantly honest but had great suggestions for further improvements."

If you need to, you may cancel for a refund of money paid (minus a $150 administration fee) by March 1, 2016 for March retreat, by April 15, 2016 for the May retreat, June 1, 2016 for the June retreats; by Sept 1, 2016 for the Sept retreat, and by Dec 1, 2016 for the December retreat.  YOU MAY NOT TRANSFER YOUR DEPOSIT TO ANOTHER RETREAT.

An emergency is a death in the immediate family (spouse, parents, children). Getting nervous about attending the retreat at the last minute is NOT an emergency. Feeling sick is NOT an emergency. Not being able to get off of work is NOT an emergency.
