This retreat is for you — four glorious days full of creative feminine expression, we step up more fully into our selves, making transitions into what can be… full on! We play and pray with movement, yoga and healing, journaling, Shamanic Circling, Tribal Grooves, African dance, and Astrological wisdom. We include working with the moon through our transitions, divine self-care practices and moving meditations–the desire of deep diving into your heart, body and soul…thriving on magical time taken for yourself!

Includes time for massages, soaking in spring fed hot pools in the meadow, walking the labyrinth, watching the rapid river surrounded by beautiful deep woods, staying in rustic cabins with all delicious vegetarian meals cooked for you.

With words and movement, reverence and release, we learn tools for transitions as we move forward, infusing and anointing ourselves with the magic of dreaming and desires.

We dance daily ceremony with sweaty wild abandon and sacred feminine sensuality,  vision questing and vision boarding, plus journaling into spaciousness and clarity, ripe with the gift of transition!
