Special Retreat: Unleashed with KELSEY MATHESON

Unleashed Retreat with Kelsey Matheson

A Journey of Massive Growth through Self-Discovery, Healing, and Awakening.
Get Ready to Become Unleashed!

I’m Kelsey Matheson and I’m one of the Founders & Owners of Anamaya Resort & Retreat Center. I’m thrilled you’re here! This is an AMAZING opportunity for you to massively transform your life.

Anamaya has been offering life-changing, transformational retreats for 10 years now.

As a coach I provide the same experience. I do that by tapping into your fears and blocks, and help you align with your higher-self and true potential. The work I do allows people to heal, transform and create the life they were born to live. At this retreat I am partnering with an incredibly talented Astrologer to take the work I do even DEEPER. Based on your individual astrological chart, we will customize your experience so you can activate your gifts and step into your magnificence!

Doing this while staying at Anamaya elevates the work to a whole new level.


  • Are ready to achieve personal growth in a MASSIVE way.
  • Want clarity on what the next steps are for their lives.
  • NEED AN ACTION PLAN! Clarity is great, but you’re not going anywhere without a plan.
  • Feel stuck. They know there is something holding them back, but they don’t know how to get out of their own way.
  • Have the desire to connect in an intimate and tropical setting with other like-minded women – you know how motivating the energy of a group of like-minded women can be.
  • Desire some “me-time” to get away and focus on THEMSELVES!

More About Kelsey Matheson

Kelsey Matheson is an energy worker, award-winning entrepreneur, success coach and speaker based in Brooklyn, NY. She has built numerous international businesses including Anamaya Resort, and BE Outfitter – a backpack and outdoor gear company that helps provide children around the work with an education.

Kelsey is also the creator of the Optimal Health & Conscious Living Academy, an online academy for women who are ready to take control of their health (and their lives) when they feel the aging process has left them feeling lost and confused about their bodies and emotions.

After experiencing success and hardship for over 20 years as an entrepreneur, becoming a mother, and learning what it really takes to be present, happy and healthy, Kelsey is now a success coach working with women to transform their lives and empowering them to embrace their magnificence in order create the life they were born to live!

“I believe the more women we empower to embrace their magnificence, heal past emotional trauma, and align with their true potential, the better this world will be for generations to come. 

I love working with women and my mission is to help YOU get out of your own way. We are all here on this planet to evolve our souls, but we can’t do it alone! So many women suffer in silence – they know deep down there’s more to life, but feel paralyzed to take the next steps.

We avoid our fears and pain through busyness… wine… shopping… work… food… netflix… social media… and making everyone else a priority.

Through the energy work and trainings I do, you will learn how to heal past trauma and blocks that are holding you back. You will learn how to use your fear in a POWERFUL way, instead of it being destructive. These are tools you will have for a lifetime, and can share with your family, friends and other loved ones. 

It’s time to surround yourself with powerful, HEALING energy and transform your life! Are you ready?” – Kelsey Matheson

More About Astrologer Sara Elise

Sara Elise is an Astrologer living in Toronto, Canada. When she was 21 years old she experienced what might be called a ‘spontaneous awakening’. Essentially her higher self came into her body, merged with her personality, and reminded her why she is here. To wake up… and to facilitate that for others.

Several teachers came her way at that time, one of whom was the renowned astrologer, Debra Silverman. She was Sara’s guardian angel, and soon Sara was living and learning with her in Northern California. Fast forward 20 years, a decade in P&G Marketing, a decade becoming a mother to 3… and Deb & Sara reunited. Sara is now one of a handful of Debra’s official Certified Astrologers and teaches for her online school, Applied Astrology.

Sara has also spent years mentoring with the indomitable Mr. Alan Oken, studying esoteric astrology and the ancient wisdom teachings. She has trained with Mark Jones, a practitioner of Evolutionary Astrology in the Jeffrey Wolf Green lineage. And spent a year working with Didi Firman, training as a Psychosynthesis Life Coach.

“I loosely call myself a ‘Soul-based Transformational Evolutionary Astrologer. But perhaps ‘Soul Midwife’ is an easier phrase. My work uses the Astrological Map formed at the moment of birth to help align clients with their highest evolutionary intention as a soul in a body. I help people fall in love with themselves…. by reflecting what they already know in their core: that they are here on purpose, their lessons are for a reason, and they can make choices aligned to their highest good and in flow with Universal design.

I help people answer questions like: Why am I the way I am? How do I align with my deepest hearts desire? How do I awaken while thriving in society? What narratives need to be re-written? What lessons am I here to learn? What are my gifts and how do I activate them? What is my purpose… and HOW DO I LIVE IT?!?

This work is my hearts delight and soul’s calling. Not a day goes by when I am not humbled and grateful for the gift of serving in this way.” – Sara Elise

Believe in a love that is being stored up for you like an inheritance, and have faith that in this love there is a strength and a blessing so large that you can travel as far as you wish without having to step outside it.” — Rilke

We will also jump on a group Zoom call in order to meet each other before the retreat and talk more about what you can expect from the week at Anamaya, answer any questions you may have, and dive into your intentions and goals for this transformational week together.

AND we will plan a follow up Zoom call after the retreat for additional support once you’re back at home navigating life with new eyes, new intentions, and an unleashed soul.

The price for this retreat is $995 + tax (EARLY BIRD PRICE OF $795 + tax. BOOK BEFORE FEB 29th)!

During this week we are very excited to offer our guests a session with the Lucia N°03: A Meditation Tool for the New Age.

Consciously conceived, developed and created in the Tyrolean Alps of Austria by Dr. Engelbert Winkler (psychiatrist), Dr Dirk Proeckl (medical neurologist/psychologist), and engineer Jury Locker, the Lucia N°03 is a HYNPNAGOGIC LIGHT MACHINE designed to stimulate the Pineal gland.

The Lucia N°03 gently entrains the brain using the application of wide spectrum white light. Called a Neurostiumulator, Lucia’s stroboscopic light patterns stimulate the pineal gland, opening up a beautiful space for visionary exploration. Not only visually stunning, the Lucia N°03 helps clear the mind and allows even beginning meditators to reach a deep space of peace quickly. Not a replacement for meditation practice but quite the opposite – working with Lucia encourages people to meditate by awakening them to deeper states of consciousness, giving them the confidence (and roadmap) to get there on their own.

While the Lucia N°03 is not a medical device, using it supports a deep state of spiritual health and wellbeing that is always available when our consciousness is not obscured by daily distractions and thought processes. In other words, you are already perfect and well. Stepping back into the state where you can access this state of wellbeing can assist in letting go of imbalances that may be present in your energetic, emotional, astral or physical bodies.

Clients work with Lucia for a wide range of reasons. Some of the reported benefits have included:

  • Rapid and sustained deep relaxation
  • Increased learning capacity and performance
  • Peak athletic performance and recovery
  • A sense of ‘slowing down’
  • Holistic health improvements to a wide range of emotional and mental symptoms, including anxiety, depression
  • A passage through time and spacelessness
  • Immersions in worlds of colour and shape and never-before-seen beauty
  • Stimulation of creativity
  • An ability to ‘let go’ of egoic attachment and reconnect with one’s larger essence
  • increased self awareness
  • Deep emotions and a strong feeling of peace and joy
  • Spiritual experiences
  • Alleviating symptoms of seasonal effective disorder
  • Helping with sleep disorders.

Try a Lucia session for yourself to experience the amazing benefits! One session is $80 and will be offered by Sara Elise.
