Known for her directness and pinpoint accuracy, Maureen Hancock will be running a multi-day Soul Shift Spiritual Immersion at Six Senses Douro Valley from November 9 to 13, 2022. During the retreat, Maureen will fill a toolbox with all kinds of tools to open up to your intuition and your abilities to see, feel, hear and sense your loved ones in spirit. It is a fun, soothing, transformative, and energetic adventure.

Bringing lightness to an overwhelming subject matter

Descended from Irish mystics, Maureen discovered she could communicate with the spiritual realm as a very young girl. For fear of being misunderstood, however, she suppressed her ability, choosing a more conventional career as litigation paralegal at Boston’s Logan Airport with a sideline in stand-up comedy.

It was while driving home from a late-night gig aged 25 that her life changed forever. “I fell asleep at the wheel and my car hit a tree. On impact, I felt a rush of warmth go through my body and I heard my grandmother’s voice. I know divine intervention came upon me that night. When the fire and rescue team arrived, I was standing outside a completely crushed vehicle. On arrival at the hospital, my physical injuries had healed, and I didn’t need any surgery.”

When tragedy struck East Coast America on 9/11, everything came full circle and she started to connect with messages from the spirit world. She finally came to terms with her calling, volunteering more and more of her time to help grieving parents remain connected with their children, assisting the FBI in the search for missing children on cold cases and teaching the living about life after death.

“When I realized I had the ability to hear the deceased, I dubbed myself the comedian medium because I like to take this heavy subject and bring some lightness to it, combining it with my work as a shiatsu practitioner, yoga teacher, and 27 years as a Reiki master. I started a holistic healing center and cancer foundation Manifest a Miracle. I use my hands to heal, tap into my intuition to hear the voices of beyond, and bring my comedy to bring lightheartedness to an overwhelming subject matter that nobody likes to talk about.”

Your loved ones in spirit are rooting you on!

Maureen emphasizes that there’s nothing wrong with embracing joy when remembering our loved ones. Her retreats are purposely designed to be uplifting and celebratory. “I like to take the heaviness of grief and transform it into little pieces of joy. Your loved ones in spirit are rooting you on. They want you to live the best life you can. They want you to feel them and know that they are guiding you.”

Guests might join her retreats for a whole range of reasons. However, there is a universal purpose, which is to open your heart to your intuition, connect to your spirit guides and access tools to gain a sense of perspective and make what time you have left on this earth worthwhile. You also receive a postcard from heaven, where Maureen tunes into the energy of spirit to invite your loved ones in, in a fully supportive environment. “It’s a reminder to live with all your heart, laugh with all your might, and find out what your priorities are and purpose is. With grief, you shut off feeling. I make it accessible to be able to pull your grief forward and weave it into your life instead of blocking it.”

Her retreats end up being the opposite of a withdrawal. By incorporating wellness, self-care, and energy flow, they open your heart and push you back out into the light.
