hi there! i'm dr. Davia shepherd

Certified Retreat leader + HOLISTIC DOC.

to heart-centered women in business like you

Out of the most challenging times come the greatest transformations. If you’d met me 10 years ago you’d have met a truly different person on many levels. For one: I was in excruciating pain. The irony of this is not lost on me y’all. As a doctor who treats pain, there I was pushing through my pain with a big completely FAKE smile on my face. I was a victim of the “toxic sense of self sufficiency,” that our society applauds.

It all started when, after years of infertility, I finally had my baby. This coincided with me starting in private practice- during an economic downturn. In addition to my stress at work, my amazing baby never slept through the night. I was up with him at night and bright eyed and bushy tailed seeing patients all day. The icing on the cake was that I was not losing the baby weight, so I did the obvious thing: I limited calories and started training for a marathon. Clearly the right choice… If you want to burn out.

Getting the AUTOIMMUNE diagnosis made me realize It was time to start taking care of me. The profound results from going on transformational retreat, with trusted facilitators and like minded women, changed everything. My focus on self appreciation helped me heal my body and my life.

Now I have committed my life to helping women in business to Live Their Optimal Lives! I'm the host of Ladies' Power Lunch, a community and movement for women in business who truly believe that when we support each other we all thrive.

to heart-centered women... and men too!

In her own words, Gail shares about herself and her experiences that have led her to be committed to helping others live their optimal lives:

"As a busy mom, wife, and coach juggling numerous clients and organizing six seminars across the country, along with producing CDs, I felt like the energizer bunny, constantly on the go and fueled by sheer determination. However, my relentless pursuit of success came at a cost—I developed Lupus.

Hitting this figurative wall was a wake-up call. I realized that I couldn't continue to shoulder everything alone. I had to learn the power of collaboration and allowing support into my life. With this newfound insight, I assembled a supportive team and made the courageous decision to take time off.

During this hiatus, I attended retreats held by trusted facilitators and embarked on a journey of healing, guided by grace, self-care, and meditation. Surrounded by a circle of love and engaging in gentle exercise, I gradually shed my old limiting beliefs and, miraculously, healed from Lupus within six months.

This experience taught me the importance of setting patterns of healing and prioritizing self-care. Even as I continue to thrive in my various roles, I constantly remind myself to nurture my well-being and maintain my energy levels—a vital lesson that continues to guide me on my journey. In our society, the majority of women prioritize caring for others over themselves, often neglecting their own needs. However, dedicating time to self-care isn't selfish; it's essential for personal well-being.

This retreat offers a safe space to address and heal old patterns and wounds, providing non-judgmental support along the way. By taking the time to restore and balance your energy, and through the camaraderie of like-minded women, you'll empower yourself to prioritize self-nurturing. Gain insight into mind-body techniques that promote holistic wellness, nurturing your mind, body, and spirit. Allow yourself to embrace self-love and cultivate the confidence to recognize your uniqueness and inherent worthiness."

I attended the event on collaboration because I am stepping outside of my comfort zone. Life is … all about the collective. And by giving, I am also receiving. I would describe LPL as Energetic, Empowering and Enlightening. As a result, I scheduled Zoom meetings with members, and I have set myself free to receive again. Thanks a million!

-Dee DiFatta

Through this group I've not only grown my business but I've connected with such amazing and inspiring ladies. I consider many of these ladies to be my friends. When I think of LPL: inspiring, friendships, empowering and growth are what immediately come to mind, though I'm not sure any of these words really do justice to how amazing this group is.
