King Murphy’s Retreat and Style Rituals
The Art of Living Spiritually
You’re invited to join some of the top metaphysical professionals for a three day immersive retreat. It will be a powerful and enlightening experience that allows individuals to disconnect from the distractions of everyday life, and reconnect with their inner selves. This retreat will provide a safe and nurturing environment where participants can explore different spiritual practices, learn from experienced teachers, and engage in deep introspection.
The first two days will be panel-type discussions, individual presentations and group activities. The third day of the retreat will be a celebration of the Celtic Holiday of Samhain. All of our presenters from the previous two days along with many other local practitioners will be there offering shortened versions of readings, energy work and many other practices. There will be sound baths, movement workshops, drum circles, and vendors selling tinctures, jewelry, candles, drums, Peruvian textiles, and King Murphy’s Stones will be open.
During the retreat, participants are encouraged to let go of what doesn’t serve them and focus on their spiritual growth. The retreat will offer workshops and discussions on topics like Shamanism, Energy Healing, Chakra Balancing, and connecting with nature, providing participants with valuable tools and knowledge to continue their spiritual journey even after the retreat ends.
One of the highlights of this retreat is the opportunity to connect with like minded individuals who are also on a spiritual path. The sense of community and support that emerges from these connections can be incredibly uplifting and inspiring. Participants have the chance to share their experiences, learn from each other, and form lasting friendships.
This could be a transformative experience that can lead to personal growth, self discovery, and a deeper connection with the divine. It is a time to nourish the soul, expand consciousness, and gain a greater understanding of oneself and the world around us.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions surrounding the retreat. If your ready to reserve your spot and pay your down payment, please click the “Book It” link below. We look forward to providing you the opportunity to open your mind, body and spirit to all the Universe has to offer.

Hey, I’m Colleen! I’m here to be your personal energy stylist. I created Style Rituals to be a fun and practical experience to get grounded, heal issues, practice self-care, build better boundaries, tap into your intuition & more. After straddling the fashion & wellness industries for the last 20 years I developed my own brand of glamour magic by blending my experiences as a designer, stylist, brand consultant, healer, mentor, teacher, coach, author and a serial entrepreneur.
My journey to becoming an energy stylist started in New York City. I was working in fashion & realized that statement necklaces had super powers, colors worn influenced a person’s energy & that my intuition could be used to heal myself & inspire others. I ended up jumping high-heels first down the mystical rabbit hole, traveling all over the world studying healing modalities & eventually connecting all my skills & passions together to found Style Rituals.

Studies in Spiritual Psychology, shamanism, mysticism, dreamwork, intuition, reiki, crystals, life coaching, sound healing, & breath-work influence her work behind the chair today. Her holistic offerings include 1:1 breathwork, reiki, card reading, and ritualized beauty treatments.
To better understand how the salon may better serve as a secular temple and center for community resources, she is currently perusing degrees in Religious Studies and Sociology at OSU.
