About Us

Mindful Blend Retreat started when three passionate women decided to weave together their individual specialties in the fields of Life Coaching, Hypnotherapy and Therapeutic Yoga, to create a transformative weekend designed to empower people to realize their full potentials.  We believe we have organized a unique system to developing skills for optimal living, through a program of self discovery and education for the whole person:  body, mind, heart, and spirit. We invite you to come heal and renew with us here, at "The Homestead," located in the beautiful Pinnacle Valley of Little Rock, Arkansas.

Meredith Lyon, Hypnotherapist  www.transformativehypno.com

Meredith began her practice in hypnotherapy in 2017, though she has been studying neuro-plasticity and the effects of hypnosis on the brain for years.  Because she has effectively overcome her own struggles with abuse, loss, depression and other mental and emotional illnesses, it is now her passion to encourage others and help them achieve lasting effects on a subconscious level. Through a comprehensive use of a variety of very powerful techniques, including therapeutic journal writing, the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), and hypnotherapy, Meredith seeks to catapult her clients into an exciting, life-changing realm of "being," in which individual passions are not only discovered, but put to use in the most powerful way possible.  - Transform your thoughts, transform your habits, transform your life.
