In these three days, you are warmly held in a space that allows you to feel safe in your body and being. Letting fears and contractions unwind and return to a natural flow. Sharing this unfolding with amazing women from which you can learn and grow. Surrounded by nature, your being naturally unwinds and opens, revealing your essence and greater wisdom.


On Saturday, you will be invited to step into the art of ritual talk. Rituals mark life's momentous and symbolic events from special birthdays and holidays to personal affairs such as a child's first day of school or the death of a beloved pet. Over time and as people and circumstances change, some rituals become merely habitual, losing their significance and creating a hunger for more meaningful methods of celebration.

You will explore the power, relevance, and need for ritual. It is for committed and soul-centered women who want to fully step into their light and live into their highest. Also on Saturday, you have some very incredible and amazing guests from African drumming. Nathan and Amanda will take you on a journey of the beat with drums and dance. Their classes are full of soul, whether you have never played an instrument before or you are already in the scene, you will learn to explore the magical connection of playing the djembe (One drum for each guest).

Amanda has a passion and energy for the art form that led her to quickly develop her repertoire with many on stage performances under her belt. Her on-stage charisma and non-threatening style has given her the ability to engage with audiences and introduce many a novice to the exciting world of African drum and dance.

​On Monday, you will gather in a women's circle in an intimate space to learn new ways of speaking and listening. It is a space where you can discover and integrate the freshness of the woman you are becoming. You gather together as equals united by the same purpose of creating a container of truth-telling, sacred witnessing, healing, and transformation.
