A spiritual retreat is a time to honor you. It is a time to say yes to your needs. The old saying, “a woman’s work is never done” shows itself to be true for so many of us and this constant state of action begins to wear us down physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
Holding space for women during a retreat is one of my greatest honors as my own personal experience with retreats has been so profound and an important part of my own journey. It was during my times on retreat with an intimate group of like-hearted women where I experienced some of my most profound moments of healing and breakthrough. People will often ask how I did all of this spiritual work while being a mother to 3 children and usually running some kind of business; the answer is always dedicated time to Self. Through it all I always made time and created space for me. Even when my children were small at least once a year I would say yes to me. It was as if I had an internal knowing of how important this was for me to bring the best out of myself and it was in these dedicated times for myself I was actually doing more for my family by putting myself first in these moments.
This is why you will hear me say so often…”Say YES to YOU” it isn’t some catchy phrase for me. I know deep within that I would not be where I am today without my own commitment to honoring myself and putting myself first over the years. This is a concept that so many women struggle with as we have been taught that this is selfish. I will stand up and say this is one of the greatest lies to be repeated and sold.
When we constantly put others needs before our own we end up drained, overwhelmed, angry, depressed and a whole host of other symptoms. All you have to do is look at the number of our sisters that find themselves turning to prescriptions to feel better and know we have got it wrong! If you make the shift to putting yourself at the top of your list and making your own self-care a priority you have given your loved ones and this world more of yourself than you ever could by putting everyone else before you. This is a truth that I hold dear.
At this point in my life I am only able to host 2-3 retreats a year and I look forward to this time almost more than anything else that I offer. It is that special.
This is an opportunity for you, the call has been clear and our world is in a place where each one of us more than ever is beckoned to remember the power that we hold within our own hearts and the capacity of our beautiful minds to BE the CHANGE that is needed. Time away from it ALL in RETREAT is the very best way to either deepen the work that you have already begun or to step into this part of your journey in a most exciting way.
A retreat with a group of like-hearted women seeing and experiencing self in an expanded and enlightened way will forever change the course of your own life. This is an opportunity to come together and commune, share, explore, breakthrough, hold space, see & be seen.
We will utilize healing practices in ceremonial circles being supported by the powerful Sedona energy as well as tapping into and exploring the angelic realms for assistance on our journey together. We will fully surrender as a collective and allow ourselves to be guided as we open even more to receive.
We have called this retreat Rest & Renew as a reminder that our ability to let go and allow absolute REST within our bodies and our minds RENEWS our Spirit strengthening us to be the very best version of ourselves for this human journey.
Each morning we will explore the physical through movement to say yes to our bodies and show a love for the body that will help us remember this important partnership in our daily lives. You will have an abundance of time and space for silence and solitude as well as connection and commUNITY. Whatever you most require for YOUR retreat will be available for you.
Each afternoon we come together for Deep Rest using Yoga Nidra & Sound to give our bodies and our minds time and space for absolute surrender.
In the evenings we come together for Ceremony. The power of Ceremony lies within our ability to ALLOW Spirit to guide us and truthfully we never know exactly what will arise however it is always powerful and transformative for everyone involved. In these times we remember the ways of our ancestors and celebrate our connection with All That Is.
In addition you will be gifted with the most beautiful and nourishing vegetarian meals to assist in this journey we will take together. We have found the food to be such an important part of the retreat and we have a most beautiful mother/daughter team to provide for us during this retreat.
Jenny, Rachelle and myself and so excited for this time and can’t wait to share our time, attention and love with YOU!
Much Love & Many Blessings,
