Women's Empowerment Retreat - Embracing the Feminine

When a woman transforms herself, she transforms everyone around her.  

When a woman embraces her femininity, everyone benefits from her grace.

When a woman learns to love herself from the inside out, she shines.  She glows.  She is magnetic.

I created this retreat because of an opportunity I often see with my female clients and friends. Women are evolving and more empowered than ever, yet still struggle to enjoy the simple pleasures of life, balancing their responsibilities, and feeling peaceful inside. The truth is... 

You already have everything inside of you to live a successful and fulfilling life.  

The problem is you have forgotten who you are...  

This retreat is designed to help women better understand themselves in service to making transformational change.  Each of us, male and female, have both masculine and feminine energy.  Masculine energy is striving, achieving, doing, aggression, rushing, controlling, busy, etc.  It isn't wrong, it just needs to be balanced with our feminine side.  Feminine energy is the part of us that receives, allows, trusts, connects with others, knows how to surrender and more. The feminine practices compassion and empathy within herself first, which has a ripple effect to those around her. 

This powerful 3 day workshop offers women an opportunity to re-connect with themselves, learning about and exploring their feminine yin-energy, and practicing new ways of being, including how to love themselves more fully.  

This retreat is for women who want to:

  • Embrace and nurture their feminine side
  • Understand themselves better.
  • Let go of patterns that no longer serve them.
  • Create space for acceptance of self, creativity, inner peace, and aliveness.
  • Learn about masculine/feminine energy, and how to reconnect with and anchor into her feminine essence.
  • Get away for a few days to replenish, nurture, learn and practice self-care.

My Story:

For a long time, I was living more from of my masculine energy. I was a perfectionist, striving to achieve, and my own worst critic. I was spinning my wheels yet never feeling satisfied. As a result, my relationships suffered, my career wasn't satisfying, and I was too proud to admit it. At the time, I certainly didn't know anything about the masculine/feminine energy that resided in all of us. After years of study, research and practice, I became fascinated by the concept and practice of tuning into my feminine. I learned that striving (masculine) wasn't wrong, I just wasn't balancing it. My feminine was depleted. Learning to embrace my feminine side has been a game changer. My relationships now are healthy, balanced, significantly more joyful, and pleasurable.  My career is what I've always dreamed of, and I feel so blessed supporting others in living into the highest version of themselves.  

Join us.  I am looking forward to basking in the glory with all of you.
