Allow Your Inner Medicine Woman to Fully Emerge!

As Women who hold ourselves as divine expressions of creative power and beauty, we gather in a good way to celebrate, play, restore, learn, expand and support.
A Woman’s Rite Retreat is a unique opportunity to explore in depth both the ancient and contemporary teachings of the sacred feminine.
The essence of these teachings are found throughout all cultures, traditions and time. 
The common thread is that these are the teachings of and for women.
A Woman’s Rite Retreat offers the opportunity to engage in ritual, sharing, ceremony, revitalization, knowledge, play and authentic expression.
We will open our hearts, our minds and our inner eye and we will truly see one another; allowing each woman to see herself as the Sacred Medicine that she is and that she carries.
As our collective sight expands in power, focus and appreciation, your personal Medicine will reveal itself in ways previously unknown to you. 
You will walk as your Medicine in confidence, clarity and joy.
Join us on August 4, 5, & 6, 2023 for our next Woman’s Rite Retreat.
