Event description


Our work has the potential to be a channel for the impact our Souls most deeply desire to have on the world. But more often than not, it can be a source of suffering if we’re not clear about what we’re uniquely here to do. Join us at this 3-day experience to help align with your soul’s deepest desires at work with an intimate and supportive community on sacred land in Mount Shasta, CA.

When we live from Soul First and reconnect with our deepest essence, we get in touch with the wellspring that feeds and informs our gifts and talents.

Over the 3 day weekend, we will do deep group and one-on-one work to help you gain clarity about what’s truly important to you at the soul level at work, so you can focus your time and attention wisely to be able to amplify your talents.

You’ll gain tools to harness and digest the wisdom of your emotions to get unstuck when you hit roadblocks in the office. People who learn to apply the Soul First approach discover a grounded clarity that nourishes and integrates their deepest priorities and purpose.

What will you walk away with?

  • Personalized guidance about your priorities at the level of Soul at work

  • Level 2 practices to live from Soul while in the midst of life’s every day demands

  • Deep experiential access to your soul’s authentic desires

  • Clarity about your chosen focus topic related to work / your career

What will the experience be like?

  • Morning and afternoon embodiment sessions

  • Daily group coaching circles

  • 3 nourishing / healthy meals per day

  • Immersion in the healing wilds of Hestia’s sacred land

  • Intimate dialogue with participants who are similarly asking these questions

  • A trip to nearby Stewart Mineral Springs to soak in the most healing waters we know

  • Plenty of free time to deepen with your chosen focus topic

  • Option for in-house massages (focused on emotional and physical release)

Note: Level 1 is a pre-requisite for this program. And this program is a pre-req for the Level 3 Shadow Work intensive.

Who are the facilitators?

Steve Seto is an intuitive coach committed to his spiritual path since 2001. The crisis from his divorce at that time was the catalyst to a deep commitment to understand the root causes of his suffering. He draws wisdom from chi gung, martial arts, meditation and emotional work.

Over the years, he has created a map of human experience rooted in a Soul First approach. He excels at helping others embody new ways of being, articulating the essence of their soul’s desires and intentions, and thus empowering others to live from their highest potential.

Melissa Lau is a leadership coach whose spiritual journey started in earnest after her father’s unexpected death catalyzed a deep period of exploration about her soul’s true desires while at the pinnacle of her Harvard MBA’s dream of a successful career in Silicon Valley.

She draws wisdom from yoga, the healing power of sacred spaces, and group systems philosophy. Her superpowers are asking beautiful questions, bringing clarity where there was formerly confusion, and weaving together insights across unexpected disciplines.

What have other people said about this experience?

"If you're ready to be honest with yourself and what you need, this will be an amazing workshop for you. If you really put your heart into it, it'll be a game changer!" -- Marie M.

"This experience was a powerful way for me to tune into what I've really been feeling, and learn to listen to my Soul to make new decisions." -- T.

"This workshop is a great environment to tune into what we want vs need and are a "no" to in an embodied, emotionally attuned way." -- A.P.

"I really saw how I operate in relationship clearly. Most importantly, I saw how my patterns in relationship with others impact the trajectory of my future... and how by learning to listen to my Soul's desires it'll help me live in greater alignment with what's True for me." -- Andres E.

"The exercises and meditations that Melissa and Steve lead you through help to very skillfully build on and integrate the discoveries we made in this workshop regarding power and authenticity. The whole arc of the workshop was designed very intentionally to help us deepen quickly." -- Laura A.

What are the accomodation options?

You've got 3 great options:

  • Private accomodations will be in your own private cabin or apartment -- with a private bathroom and kitchenette. Options available: 1 queen bed or two doubles. (Subject to availability. The closer to the date of the retreat, it'll be hard to guarantee this option). These accomodations will be ~3 min drive / 10 min walk from where we'll be meeting for meals / group sessions.

  • Shared accomodations will be on site at Hestia. You'll have your own bed in a bedroom potentially shared with up to 2-3 other people, and have access to shared bathrooms and the kitchen in the main house at Hestia.

  • Glamping will be on site at Hestia and is the most economical option. You'll have your own tent with a real bed, and access to both indoor and outdoor bathroom / shower facilities, and the kitchen in the main house at Hestia.

What are the logistics?

  • The retreat will be held at Hestia -- our private retreat center in Mount Shasta, CA. It's roughly a 4-4.5 hour drive from the Bay Area. We'll do our best to help arrange car pools to/from the Bay Area. (Alternately, you can also take Amtrak from Emeryville to Dunsmir, and we can help arrange a pickup for you for $40).

  • Closer to the date, we'll send out a survey to inquire about your dietary needs.

  • If you'd like to save on ticket processing fees, email melissa@hestiagrove.com

  • If you'd like to arrive as early as Sept 23rd to relax / create space to hear your Soul before the retreat begins, you're welcome to! Just let us know what kind of accomodation you'd like by emailing melissa@hestiagrove.com.
