THE LOVE FROM 2016 IS STRONG:
“There are moments you know will be a part of your life forever. You see them coming. You prepare as best you can. And you praise God for every passing minute. This wasn’t that. I was terrified. Winding the countryside to the retreat house, I was there for the calorie burn and to be as invisible as possible. I’ve never been more glad to be more wrong in my expectations. {r}ise up was more than a weekend learn and burn. It was a weekend where – together – a room full of imperfect sisters chased after God and worked to balance through all of life’s challenges. I walked in unlike the group in almost every way but one- I, too, had been created in the image of the Most High, and that was the only qualifier that mattered. The work Amy lead us through was tough. My leg muscles and my heart muscle ached as we stretched and prodded, lengthened and opened wide. Leave it on the mat became more than a way to finish strong – it became the way I knew I needed to live. Nothing would be the same because of three days in scenic Tennessee when a child of God took to heart His promise that all things could rise up and be made new” – AE Graham
“Having attended annual fitness retreats spanning over more than a decade, Amy’s  {r}ise up retreat was inspiringly different. It fed more than my body, but nurtured my soul. It was a profound experience, shared with amazing women, in a most beautiful tranquil natural setting. I left empowered and enlightened. Having a clearer understanding of my purpose in this world. Stronger in mind, body and soul.” -Amy Sale
“This retreat was a real surprise to all of us in the way it unfolded- in the best of ways!   We thought we’d be working out several times & doing some “soul work,” too…. but the community that spontaneously happened meant that we were making rich, authentic friendships from the 1st HOUR.   When you combine internally focused “soul work” with deep relationships and the uplifting movement Releve One is known for…. well, watch out!!  You won’t forget this weekend!” – Angela Davis
“The {r}ise up retreat was not only relaxing for my body and my mind, but more importantly for my spirit! Amy offered tools that allowed us to explore our inner most voices and to learn more about what they were truly saying. We found ourselves growing as individuals through sharing struggles, fears and triumphs. Rise Up prompted a positive growth within and for it I am stronger and more confident with myself! I will always remember this retreat and the wonderful women who were apart of it! I am thankful for this newly found spirit that has made me more positive and content with the woman, wife and mother that I am! For this I am grateful!” – Sarah Roberts
Evins Mill is a scenic Tennessee resort property located near the town of Smithville – just east of Nashville. Minutes from Center Hill Lake, Evins Mill provides all the amenities of a luxury destination in the intimate setting of a country inn.

LODGING:
Our guests will share a room with ONE other retreat guest, as we want this experience to be a time to bond, connect, and leave with new and lasting friendships! Guests who book will be able to request rooms with friends closer to the start of 2016, once reservations are closed. 
All twelve Creek Side rooms feature private exterior entrances, two twin beds, private bathroom and covered decks with creek side views. Accessible by an asphalt footpath from the Main Lodge, where guests arrive and park, Creek Side rooms come in two varieties – Mountain Laurel & Evergreen. Both offer immediate sight & sound of water and views of the opposing bluff to further enhance the relaxing and serene intention of our gathering.
DINING:
For many guests, dining at Evins Mill is the highlight of their experience. Unlike a traditional B&B, Evins Mill is a full service resort, fielding a full chef and wait staff and offering not only breakfast but also dinner, lunch, breaks & full bar service. The cuisine is prepared fresh from the farm.
In an effort to acquire its food from local vendors who raise their animals in a humane, grass-fed and chemical-free environment and who grow their produce organically, Evins Mill is pleased to partner with a number of Tennessee-based food purveyors.
COZY GATHERING SPACES:
If lodging and cuisine are at front and center of the Evins Mill experience, equally salient are the many common areas where groups can mix, mingle and make merry. Between the Main Lodge, Gristmill and Solstice, public spaces include covered decks with great views, living rooms with wood burning fireplaces, an intimate dining room and an expansive game hall.

Movement, Milestones, and Miracles

Unknown-2

Hey Ya’ll!!

I’ve been up to quite a bit since my last post, and though this is long overdue, I’m thrilled to re-launch our blog as I’ve finally found clarity on its exact purpose.

As we continue to move into 2016, I’d like this forum to be a place where sweet moments are recapped. Where people who need to be uplifted come to be inspired, where stories of faith are told, and where our Heavenly Father will be glorified.

If you’d like to share a Milestone or Miracle…please email me: amy@releveone.com

So…Here We Go….

After almost a 20 year spiritual journey, I opened my heart to the undeniable and perfect Love of Jesus this past October.

Over the past few months I have had many friends tell say that I’m “On Fire for the Lord”…

While I will share my full testimony in another post-…I am in agreement!

I have been ignited with a Powerful Love that I never knew was possible!

Don’t get me wrong; I have gratefully felt beautiful and extreme degrees of Love in my life. The true, sweet, and unconditional Love of family, friends, my adoring and faithful husband, and the pure and innocent Love from my children…

Yet…WOW…never a Love so intense!

Since that day, the Lord has shown me BIG things… MIRACULOUS things!

He has used the people with whom I’m closest to drive His Perfect Love deeper into my own heart! Radical, Supernatural and Fueled by Him! I continue to be awe struck by how He loves us THAT much!!

In January, many of you followed the Miracle Story of my dear friend, Shellie Rader. If not and/or you’d like to revisit the enormity of a miracle… CLICK HERE to read an amazing example of how God’s Love not only provides…but it HEALS!!

During the month of February, another sweet friend of mine battled the enemy in the form of a health related issue. Coming off the heels of Shellie’s supernaturally charged recovery, I knew exactly what needed to be done!

We needed to pray…Expectantly… For A Miracle!
We needed to thank God in advance for my friend’s total and restored health!

So…we called out to our prayer warriors and that’s exactly what we did!

To See What Happened…Read Below!

******************************************************************************************

EXPECT A MIRACLE

A little over a month a go something happened to me that was life changing. During the days of reading Amy Weber’s blog and her daily updates about Shellie Rader’s battle to recover from her life-threatening brain hemorrhage, I witnessed in Amy’s words and prayers her unshakeable, undeniable, never ceasing faith that Shellie would recover, and that she would receive complete supernatural healing. Most of you know that Amy committed her life to Christ only a few short months ago. I was completely amazed by Amy’s level of faith. She totally believed, completely trusted, and had undeniable assurance and confidence that God and Jesus would completely heal Shellie. WOW!

As far as back as I can remember I believed that God existed and I believed in God; but now I realize that my faith in God was very weak and did not have a solid foundation. My faith was never a strong aspect of my relationship with God. During difficult life situations, when I prayed for family, friends, or myself, I would pray but I NEVER really believed or trusted completely that God and Jesus would answer my prayers. I wished for things to happen, not believed that they would. Also sometimes worry and fear were constant companions during many of those difficult times.

Late one night, after reading the day’s blog that Amy posted after an extremely difficult day for Shellie and once again me witnessing Amy’s unwavering faith in response, I started sobbing. I couldn’t control it. My heart raced and my body shook. I literally cried out to God and asked that He fill me up with MORE MORE faith! I realized that my faith wasn’t just about believing that God exists. I needed more! I had to nurture and grow my faith by drawing closer to Him. I needed to begin to trust and unconditionally believe in Him and His promises. That next night I recommitted my life to Jesus! MORE Lord!

Why am I sharing this story with you? Because recently I had something happen in my life that tested my new faith and commitment. A little background info first; two years ago, I had surgery to remove a growth that surrounded the bones in my right inner ear. The surgery was successful in removing the growth but resulted in a severe hearing loss, a significant loss of balance, and an unceasing sense of pressure/pain in that ear because my Eustachian tube collapsed permanently.

Shortly after this Christmas, I had a severe upper respiratory infection. Unfortunately the illness caused severe ear infections in both my ears resulting in the rupture of my left (aka good) eardrum. I could barely hear. The pain and pressure was intense.

After a visit to my ENT specialist, his prognosis was not good. The hearing test showed that the normal hearing in my left ear was now a severe loss, just one step above my right ear. The specialist said that approximately 50-60% of my eardrum was ruptured. A typical rupture is approximately 15 to 20%. Complete healing would be much more difficult given the current state of my eardrum. This news was very difficult for me to hear because a ruptured eardrum that never healed was what caused the problem in my right ear years ago. I could not bear the thought of going through that pain again.

That night during my prayer time I realized that my difficult health situation would completely challenge my new and improved faith, but I realized though that in Christ I had everything I needed to overcome this. I started to believe, trust and be confident that I would be healed by Jesus. I started to expect a miracle, not just hope for one! For “with God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26).

During the following weeks, I gave my fear and worry to Him. I read scripture that guided my thoughts and offered me support. Were there moments where doubt crept in? YES absolutely, but then I would return to scripture and more prayer. A few of my favorite verses that really helped me were:
He will shield you with His wings! They will shelter you. His faithful promises are your armor. (Psalm 91:4.)
Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. (Hebrews 11:1)
For we walk by faith, not by sight. (2 Corinthians 5:7)
Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. (Mark 11: 24.)

The other thing that I did that helped me immensely was I reached out to my family and friends for prayer support. I was very specific in my prayer requests when I asked them to include me in their prayers. Everyone needs prayer warriors!!! Do not be afraid to seek their help. To each and everyone of my prayer warriors, THANK YOU for praying for me! I love you!

To conclude my story, just a few days ago, I had my return visit to the ENT doctor. On the drive to Vanderbilt Medical Center and while waiting in the waiting room, my heart was calm. I was calm during my hearing test. (This NEVER happens!) While waiting in the examination room, I didn’t tear up with thoughts of possible surgery or what bad news that I might hear. O God, my heart is quiet and confident. (Psalm 57:7) I believed and trusted that my left ear was perfectly healed by God. I believed that my hearing would return. The doctor began his examination with his scope and the images that popped up on the monitor took my doctor by complete surprise! My left eardrum was COMPLETELY healed! He then read the results of my hearing test report and he told me that my hearing in my left ear was completely restored to NORMAL! He shared with me that this was not the results that he expected given the condition of my ear on the last visit.

I just smiled. I expected a miracle and I received one.
Praise GOD!
With His Perfect Love,
Pam Hawkins

I Am A Humble Warrior…

This morning, I had the privilege of experiencing a breakthrough during my yoga practice which was lead by one of the truest of hearts and a very trusted soul sister, Rebecca White.

This past year I have journeyed through yoga in a way much like life-and have truly grasped the concept that Yoga IS breath….Yoga IS life

.I have stumbled, soared, practiced from a place of ego, had regressions within my posturing, fallen, learned lessons, and even allowed my personal practice to go dormant.

In order to fully appreciate the story, I must rewind the clock and reflect:

One year ago, I sat, wide eyed, upon a brand new mat gifted to me by lululemon; on a trip for which I was sent by their amazing company, in a room full of the worlds most inspiring in fitness and in leadership.

 The 2014 lululemon Ambassador Summit! 

Was I really here…Me??

 Prior to the start of our group Jivamukti yoga practice, I remember speaking to a gal next to me and saying: “The energy in this room is insane!” I could feel the unity…the openness from every single being in that room!

Completely unaware that this adventure, with these people, gifted to us by this amazing company, in a beyond picturesque location, would transform my life in such a short amount of time on such a grand level.

What I did know at that moment? I was honored to be in the company of and awe-struck by the colorful energy within this group. While we all practiced together …our varied levels made the most beautifully diverse vibrational harmony I’ve ever felt.

The experience that lululemon gifted me was so much more than the class…it was a total delve into the Self via inspiration, reflection, movement, bonding, trust, baring of the soul, and having the MOST fun!

After returning back to the states, to our {r}elevé one community, and to the loving arms of my amazing husband and our boys, I felt overwhelmed.

 “What am I to do with all that I’ve learned”

I felt like I had so much to share…so much to say….so much to do!

I had breakthroughs on that mountop in Whistler! I’d deeply connected with a group of strangers who became a family in such a short time. I made promises and commitments to confront and release myself of fears that had plagued me for a great while…and I committed with deadlines!

In four short days I changed, evolved, and grew stronger and more certain of my purpose!

As I reflect on this past year, I see that the presence of adversity, uncertainty, and anxiety were in abundance- always there for me…trying to swallow me in their wrath! I won’t complain, or try to place priority over my happenings…aren’t we all trying to release ourselves of these chains?

It’s how we arrive at the “other side”…free of these chains that truly matters!

In tandem with a loving and supportive family and network of friends, everything that I have accomplished this year can be credited toward the soul food that I experienced in those four days!

Today’s practice was the peak…the top of the mountain! A level of growth that I experienced exactly one year ago…

This morning, Rebecca lead us through a classic and beautiful flow; encouraging each participant sto connect within. To rid ourselves of ego or expectations.

I often refer to Rebecca’s class as: 

Good Clean Beautiful Yoga;

Meaning, we work form, breath, and soul without focusing on the “fancy stuff”.

For a time over this past year, I got caught up in The Fancy!

My mission became trying to get in to as many advanced poses as possible. Unknowingly, I began a silent competition within!

My Soul vs. My Ego!!!!

Every pose I achieved was like a high. Every arm balance I held was a victory. I wanted more…and more…

Until, this summer, I attempted a posture that injured my neck which put a halt on my practice…Fear was back and ready to shut me down!

My ego was winning:

“If I can’t do this…then I’m going to quit,” she said.

In retrospect, I was skipping the steps…missing the beauty and evolution that comes from Good Clean Beautiful Yoga!

 Recently, I recommitted to my practice and decided not to bring along my ego.

 She had to go! She wasn’t going to let me get caught up again!

Little did I realize, that the point where I welcomed my personal practice back into my world, was in fact after I had healed and released myself of two of my greatest fears- which I’ll kindly leave unnamed.

I have always considered myself to be a “work in progress”…one who embraces growth and evolution, but lets be honest…when hardship arrives, the embrace isn’t always a sweet one until after we are through the fire!

Back to today’s class…

Showing up on my mat was in question all they way up until I dropped my son off at school at 9am this morning…I’m so glad that I did!

Not only was I reaffirmed throughout the hour that simplicity is the gate way to growth, I also overcame another fear.

For the first time, I safely floated into a headstand and held the posture for 4 breaths!

There was no ego, no demand, and no need…just an attempt that allowed me to look past my fear and into the love of my practice and for all of which makes me humble.

And the tears…oh the tears did fall!!

I could have wept for an hour while in childs pose, yet my soul was called to rise above my fear several more times with success!

Fear has placed itself in the way of so many things in my life! Last year, I really began digging deep into the psychology of that fear and working at great lengths to rise above, heal, and overcome!

Tomorrow marks the one-year anniversary of my trip to Whistler where my life changed so much in four short days!

Today’s headstand represents the work that I’ve accomplished throughout this past year on overcoming so many obstacles.

Last year I stepped into this Declaration:

I Am Fearless Driving Force of Truth…I am Dancing!

 And though it still “fits” me like a glove…today on my mat, while upside down, I declared:

I Am A Humble Warrior!
