SOUL SENSE: An Extraordinary Journey to Awaken Your SOUL


Lightwell Center is pleased to offer this SOUL SENSE Immersion Weekend, September 17-18, 2021 (with an optional Friday, Sept 16th Evening Registration, Cocktail Reception & Welcome Lecture) at the gorgeous Lightwell Center facility located at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Madison, VA.


Our Inspired Intention: The weekend is masterfully designed to take you on a deep personal journey into your divine energetic being to uncover your own “Super-Natural” powers resident and awaiting you inside your infinite and divine SOUL SELF!

During Soul Sense Immersion Weekend, you will awaken your senses, align with the five natural elements that fuel your being, master your chakra energy, auric expansion, and embrace all that you are in the world and beyond.  Filled with BODY-MIND-SPIRIT group and individual experiences, you will leave refreshed, re-connected and fully empowered with heightened spiritual insights and awakened intuitive powers; a calm and clear mental and emotional state – having been supported by likeminded peers and teachers to embrace your truest self while releasing what no longer serves you; and a rested and restored body -balanced and energized by all the elements in nature.

CONNECT. Expand your soul center by reconnecting through mastering meditation secrets, enhanced chakra alignment, elemental practices, Ayurveda and gentle yoga.

CLEAR.  Release via past life regression, reflection & element- inspired exercises, and fire release ceremony.

COMMAND. Attune your SOUL to the highest and most supernatural frequency to allow your innate intuitive knowing power to blossom.

CREATE. Reclaim your birth right of total integration to manifest and create YOUR PERFECT LIFE – Soul-Sensibly!

Your Guides:

Your host and lead teacher for the weekend is Julie Haines, Founder of the Lightwell Center.

Ms. Julie Haines, MBA, is a leading International Business Strategist, High Performance Intuitive Life Coach, and Marketing & Business Consultant. For more than 30 years, she brought sustainable engineering, environmental and economic policy solutions to more than 80 of the poorest countries of the world, working with governments, banks, and international donors across Asia, the Middle East, and Africa.   Seemingly a “normal” business executive, she hid a deep secret:  since childhood she could see, know and feel things before they happened!  After a life changing encounter on the eve of her 50th year, she embarked on a five-year spiritual journey to understand the intricacies of her “gifts” studying with some of the most acclaimed psychics, mediums, and past life teachers around the globe.  While on her amazing journey of self-discovery she uncovered something truly remarkable:  not only can she see, hear, and know spirit, but EVERYONE has this same ability!  Leaving her old career behind, Julie opened the Lightwell Center in Virginia to teach others to tap into their most precious talents: their ability to “know”: divine spirit, universal truths, and perhaps most precious - the magic, mission, and sweet song of their own SOUL!  Julie is an internationally trained and certified psychic medium, past life regression hypnotherapist, and 200 hr. certified yoga teacher, and Reiki I & II practitioner.  She teaches courses in the US and Europe on Soul Power, Soul Sensing, Exploration of Spirit, Intuitive Entrepreneurship and lives with her beautiful soul mate husband, Dave, and two dogs in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Lightwell Guest Lecturer and Co-Teacher, Jenn Mintz, MS is a sought-after body, energy and earth-worker and co-founder of In True Nature. Jenn’s connection to the natural world was sparked at a young age, as she spent hours after school exploring the woods and creeks of the Blue Ridge. She would go on to pursue formal studies in the sciences and spend years educating others in nature’s classroom. While guiding out-of-doors she found herself pondering human nature and wellness, and ultimately found Ayurveda- an ancient science of well-being. Guiding humans in connecting in nature and to their true nature is her life’s work and true passion.

Her partner and her returned to her hometown of Boston, VA to build a homestead and In True Nature Wellness Sanctuary to support the community in connecting to nature and their true nature of love- harmony, contentment and living well - through Ayurvedic- inspired practices- yoga, body and energy work, and wellness consultations both in and out of doors.

On paper she's a Certified Ayurvedic Wellness Counselor, Yoga Alliance registered yoga teacher (200 E-RYT, 300 RYT, YACEP), licensed massage therapist (license #0019015838) and Reiki Master. In real life she enjoys adventuring outdoors, travelling, and expanding her understanding of ancient healing practices, cultures, and the natural world.
