Event Details

Live Your Best Story is an exclusive weekend retreat (12 spots only/weeken) reconnecting you to your innate wisdom, courage and potential through the power of story.  It's two and a half days of deep listening as we explore multiple ways you can connect to your own wisdom. In a summer camp for grown ups setting with yurts, cabins, the lodge, horses, pigs, a labyrinth and more, we'll spend the weekend trying on different access points to your story such as: speaking, writing, nature, being in silence, art, one on one coaching, group work, nourishment, humour and so much more. Live Your Best Story is held at Xenia, a 38 acre forested sanctuary nestled on the east shore of Bowen Island, BC, Canada, (just 40 minutes from downtown Vancouver).

Come and spend a weekend away and Live Your Best Story if:

  • you want to hear your own voice again
  • you are in a personal transition and are seeking clarity
  • you are in a creative state and need a place to expand what you already know 
  • you want to believe in people, in yourself, in your future again 
  • you are overwhelmed by the pressures of your life and need to come home
  • you feel compelled to be here because the name of the weekend speaks to you 
  • you feel called or someone you trust said 'I think this is for you'



  • Recognize your ACCESS POINTS to hearing yourself again
  • Remember the resources within you
  • Honour your Old Story and welcome the New Story
  • Connecting to SILENCE as a life partner 
  • FUEL UP through laughter, breaking bread and story telling
  • Awaken your CREATIVITY
  • A sense of PEACE 
  • Knowing that you are honoured, treasured, and ALWAYS ENOUGH.
  • See and be seen at your BEST.
  • There are 12 SPOTS / workshop.

This weekend is filled with deep listening.

This weekend is about you. 

Enter a Weekend of Deep Listening









One on One Coaching



Tina Overbury -  Core Story Specialist, Living Story Coach

Your Living Story is the jumble of all that you are in the moment:  your thoughts, feelings, words, insights, protection and expression as they happen all at once in a single breath.  It is how your unconscious story often speaks before you do, without even saying a word.  Tina works with each participant individually reconnecting them to the four engines of personal alignment: Soulset, Mindset, Skillset and Body.  It's an opportunity to listen as you speak, allowing your innate intelligence or life-force energy to be seen.  Tina is a life performance coach with a focus on integration for a more productive, fulfilling and peaceful life.  Tina acts as the 'host' of Live Your Best Story and over the course of the weekend through group work and one on one coaching, she invites you in to stand in your Living Story. 


Dr. Carolyn Nesbitt - Therapist and Meditation Coach

What does it mean to be At Your Best? - Imagine that you can access your best at any time and bring it into all areas of your life. You would be resourced with more courage, more compassion, have access to deeper wisdom and generosity, experience more resilience and step into a life with greater joy and possibility.  That is what it feels like to live from the core of who we are.  When we live from our core, we experience life at our best bringing peace with our potential and stepping boldly into what is possible.  Carolyn leads the group through experiential exercises and short meditations to develop access to your personal resources of kindess, courage, integrity, compassion, wisdom and generosity.  Carolyn also offers one on one coaching throughout the weekend to help you reclaim your inner story of life at your absolute best. 

Nicolle Nattrass - Creative Self-Care Coach, Dramaturge, Actress, and Creative Journaling for Recovery Counselor

Your Process - Before you were born or launched your business ‘baby’, you had a story.  Once on your feet, a new one took shape and then, as your ‘self’ established and your ‘brand’ developed, yet another story was told.  Today you may be looking back at the legacy you created and are asking: Is this what I am?  Is this what I do?  Is this what I want to say?   At LYBS we call your "old stories" an access point to wisdom, and with NIcolle, your STORY is celebrated as your birthright.  Nicolle offers group exercises, individual assignments and one on one coaching allowing you to listen so as to learn from your own story.  Be it personal or professional, your story is always profound.  


"Whatever brought you hear, trust it, and remember that your story unfolds whether you choose to pick up the pen or not.  You are the author of your own story, and together we're going to help you to re-engage with your self so you can let go of living as: author unknown"
