Winter Retreat: Into the Light

Align your Vision with the Energy of Intention.

Give yourself the space to bring a sense of the sacred into your everyday life, by recognizing what really feeds your soul, and by cultivating authentic and meaningful connections and satisfying creative outlets. 

Take a virtual trip to Oaxaca and experience the magic of traditional medicine as we are guided together to do the deep work our spirit longs for and our world needs.

Join us for a Virtual Women’s Retreat and Feed Your Soul!

Return to the Light, a retreat on Zoom:  

Sunday Dec 20 2-4:30pm

Rapid accelerating change is upon us.  As much as we cling to the familiar and the comfortable, we know that change is needed, and that it certainly is inevitable.  

New energy is coming. The light is returning. We are moving towards a more feminine culture. We are moving away from us and them to “we”. We are moving from takers to makers. We are moving from accumulating to stewarding. We are moving from competing to connection.

We are part of this change.

In this retreat we will do ceremony around releasing the trauma that is held in the masculine lineage and restoring balance.

We can step up powerfully to usher in a new era.

We can offer each other powerful support as compassionate witnesses for each others’ journeys.  It is possible to connect deeply in the virtual space and we need this connection now, more than ever.

It’s time to re-vision what is possible, and take stock of what really matters. We can’t go back to the way things were, so let’s create a new normal together. Let’s get to the Yes that our souls are whispering and let’s enjoy the soulful journey. 

Join us for a virtual retreat that will empower you by cultivating confidence in your inner knowing, by exposing you to wisdom from indigenous traditions and eastern practices, and by creating a community of support.

This is for you if:

  • You are a woman dealing with change, affected by the times, experiencing a new era.
  • Your adventurous spirit has been dampened by the pandemic. You want to feel more alive!
  • You’re craving camaraderie and want to be heard, seen and witnessed and feel validation for being yourself!  You are looking for connection with a great community of woman.
  • You are ready to give yourself the gift of time, to share authentically, to dig deep. 
  • You are searching for purpose and new ways of being and you are ready for transformation
  • You long for a deeper connection to your inner knowing and your creative and spiritual self, to have more of a sense of purpose and of the sacred in your everyday life. 
  • You want to feel more confident, healthier and more vital and to support your well being.  

What you can expect: 

You will feel empowered to take action steps to manifest the life you want to live, no matter what is going on in the world. Working with your inner stance, you can impact the outer world.

We will work with eastern practices to help change the very biology that wants to keep you safe while your heart knows that it is time to risk fulfillment. 

Indigenous wisdom will help you to connect with the sacred, with the power of unseen forces, and with your own intuition by engaging in ancient rituals from cultures that are deeply aligned with natural rhythms and in tune with deep mysteries.  We will experience some powerful work from engaging in supportive and beautiful practices, it will be like a restorative vacation to another land!

You will be enveloped by a loving, supportive community who will magnify the power of your intentions. You will feel seen and heard, held in a sacred container.  

The tools that you will learn will bring lasting change into your life, a life of radical self care, soulful play, supportive connection, productive community, and creative, resourceful action.

What it includes:

  • Ceremony and learning in an indigenous tradition and a virtual visit to another culture for a fresh perspective.  We will be joined by Claudia Schurr of Tierrasagrada from Oaxaca along with her colleague, Lorena Villanueva Lopez who will lead us as guided by the wisdom and insight of Elizabeth Mattern
  • Lessons in Essential Oils, Qi Gong, Acupressure, Aroma Point Therapy (essential oils applied to acupoints) and other eastern modalities for wellness.
