Healing Journeys & Retreats

"It does not do to dwell on dreams... and forget to live." – Albus Dumbledore

Spirit Quest - Nature Journey

In our dreams, in our hearts, in our souls there is a remembrance of our wholeness. We come from many lands, many traditions, but as we sit in the heart of the nature we can see evidence of universal stories, traditions, myths, and wisdom. In the beauty of these spaces, and with reverence for the original people, you are guided into the memory of our own ancestral teachings, into the memory of a time and place that you lived in greater harmony with the rhythms of your body, the spirits of land, nature, and your community. 

Journey with us, Journey to your Wholeness. 

Women's Medicine Retreat

The Wild Woman rises within you. She yearns to be healed, to be whole, to be free. Your Divine feminine searches for her path, her purpose; she seeks community and deep meaningful connection, not to anyone, but to everything. She knows that when she sits in circle and practices ceremony, when she intentionally connects to sisterhood, the earth, the moon, the plants, the elements and spirit within all things...she sits fully in the medicine and power of her true self. This Wild creature, beautiful spirit, sacred being is ready to be nurtured; she asks for nothing more than the chance to BE.

“This is what rituals are for. We do spiritual ceremonies as human beings in order to create a safe resting place for our most complicated feelings of joy or trauma, so that we don't have to haul those feelings around with us forever, weighing us down. We all need such places of ritual safekeeping. And I do believe that if your culture or tradition doesn't have the specific ritual you are craving, then you are absolutely permitted to make up a ceremony of your own devising, fixing your own broken-down emotional systems with all the do-it-yourself resourcefulness of a generous plumber/poet.”
― Elizabeth GilbertEat, Pray, Love

Ek Chuah + Cacao Ceremony

In this enlivening ceremony, we honor the chocolate deity, Ek Chuah, and the medicine of Cacao. We learn to dance with the Divine Masculine, and to open our hearts fully. We give offerings to the spirits of the land, to the elements, and to those allies that guide us daily, and call upon them to support the clarity of our vision, nourish our passions, give us strength & focus in the pursuit of our dreams, and ground us in the courage to create what we seek in our own lives. Cacao opens us to receive the medicine of these healing energies and helping spirits more fully; it awakens the desires of our heart.

This ceremony is open to All!

Women's Moon Circle 

Over the last several years we have offered a monthly wisdom circle for women; it has been beyond beautiful. We have gathered in loving presence, honoring and witnessing for one another. Each month we have worked with a plant & animal ally, explored the shadow self, received wisdom on the influence of astrological energies. Most importantly this is a circle that has held space for the dream seeds each woman is planting in her own life. The result has been beauty beyond measure, powerful transformation, and connections that will last a lifetime. 

Our next circle begins in May; it will be open to all women desiring more ritual, inclusive spirituality, earth-centered ceremony, and the connection of sisterhood who are prepared to make a heartfelt commitment.
