Event Details

Live Your Best Story is an exclusive weekend retreat (12 spots only) 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 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 to be here (lots of people come for that reason alone). 



STAGE TIME -  What happens to you when you're on the spot?  How do you communicate?  How is your message received? Can you stand in your story? What is between you and sharing what is important to you? 


Live Your Best Story Write

PAGE TIME - When was the last time you hear your thoughts by seeing them on paper? Did you know that there are many ways to journal? Some people don't write at all, they list. There are lots of ways to write your story. We'll try out a few of them. 


GROUP TIME - Do you feel heard?  Are you seen? Do you feel known?  You will leave the weekend knowing that you are resourced at all times so you can live your best story no matter what is happening around you. 


Live Your Best Story Create

CREATE -  Did you know that you are creative?  Some of us connect to our inner wisdom through colour, shape, and design.  You'll try on accessing your story through art and see what your story has to tell you.   

SILENCE - Do you breathe?  When was your last walk in the woods?  How peaceful are you when you're silent?  Take in the power of nature, the magic of the labyrinth and listen. Live Your Best Story Listen

SILENCE and NATURE - We need time to think. We need time to breathe.  We need time to listen. Over and over this part of the weekend seems to be the most significant to many of our participants. Invite silence into your story and for many, this is how we hear our story. 


What is YOUR story?   Are you living, being, and giving your BEST? This weekend retreat returns you to the center of your best so that you can live, give and be your best story. 

The weekend is all about YOU and YOUR LIVING STORY, happening right now.  



  • Leaving with your personal ACCESS POINTS to how you hear yourself  
  • Know your personal resources that will never leave you 
  • Honouring the Old Story and welcome your New Story
  • Remembering that SILENCE is one of your life partners. 
  • Restorative CONNECTION through laughter, breaking bread and story telling
  • Awaken your CREATIVE SELF 
  • 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.  

It's time to take on you.  Take on Living.  Take on Your Best in this 3 day retreat that delivers you back to your BEST. This weekend is filled with deep listening. This weekend is about you. 


 LIVE - Tina Overbury - Your 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. 


 YOUR BEST - Dr. Carolyn Nesbitt - Therapist and Meditation Coach

Live Your Best Story Carolyn Nesbitt


Your Best  is 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. 

STORY - Nicolle Nattrass - Dramaturge, Actress, and Creative Journaling for Recovery Counselor

Story - 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"
