Are you feeling the call........
Returning to our nature
A Womens Wisdom Retreat
Sacred Valley, Peru
November 7th-14th 2022
It was over 12 years ago that I embarked on my first journey to Peru. It was beyond magnificent. Even after all these years I find words inadequate to describe my experience, it was truly life changing. Something awoke in me that had always been, had always existed, yet yearned for remembrance. I invite you on this sacred journey. The journey of remembering who you are, of returning to your wholeness and reclaiming the
sacredness of who you are.
I am over the moon to announce that registration is now open for our fall retreat to the Sacred Valley ,Peru. Our journey together will begin in Cusco, the historic city which was once the capital of the Incan empire. We will come together in community & together make our way to Pisac in the heart of the Sacred Valley. The energy of the Sacred Valley and the magical mountains that surround it are powerful catalyst for healing and growth & the perfect container in which to create sacred space together. On this enchanted land we will hold space for one another while we reconnect with our hearts, our bodies and our true nature. If you are searching for a place of belonging, a place to be seen and heard, to uncover your own brilliant gifts, and reconnect with your inner knowing and sacredness I invite you to read on.
I believe that we, the women of the world, are being called to remember and reconnect with the sacred wisdom within that each of us carries. It is time to tap back into the infinite well of wisdom within nature and within our own souls and re-align with it as our guiding compass. During our time together on this enchanted land we will connect through ceremonies, initiations and rites of passage to deepen into the remembering of how to trust in our inner authority and to manifest our visions of ourself and our world.
We will gather in Pisac, the heart of the Sacred Valley, for seven days of spiraling the creative currents of the elements of fire, water, earth, and air, and sharing our deepest truths as our deepest medicine, while being held in loving, raw, real sisterhood. Together we will weave our personal stories, the stories of our ancestors, the stories of nature, our collective stories as women, and embody healing through sacred movement, meditations, healing circles, rituals, ceremony, and much more.
We believe that when women remember the source of our nature and reclaim all that we are as sacred and whole, our world returns to love.
We will begin each day with meditation, followed by yoga and breakfast. Each day will be exciting & unique. Some days we will visit the local ruins or explore the market, while other days we will drop into ceremonial practices together. Each day in flow and timing with the days activities, there will be an opportunity to rest, restore and integrate. There are beautiful green spaces at Melissa Wasi to enjoy. You can walk or take a tuk-tuk into town to independently explore the rich culture, handmade crafts and local restaurants, or book a massage or healing offering with one of the many amazing healers that call the valley home. We will then reconvene around the evening meal and close out our day with grounding earth wisdom practices, sharing stories and songs together.
