Happy New Year!
The days are getting longer and after moving through the darkest nights of the year I find myself longing for more connection with women.
I spent my holidays on a 10-day silent retreat, where I had the opportunity to meditate for over 100 hours. While the silence was everything I needed, I truly loved coming back to my work with my mentoring clients, the women in my WAVES program, and my retreat planning! (I have so much in store for this year that I can't wait to share with you!)
The vipassana retreat showed me just how important meditation is, but also stepping out of our normal routines by 'getting away to go within'.
When we step into a structured container, and a little bit out of our comfort zone, pure magic can happen...
Not to mention tears, waves of bliss, and the feeling that you've lifted years of emotion off your chest. This magic that I'm talking about is why my incredible friend Janel and I created the 'EXALT' retreat for women:
'EXALT: Reclaiming Valentine's Day' is a one day self-care retreat for those who identify as women in a private home in the redwoods of West Sonoma County, CA
Here is a note I shared with my instagram community when it was all said and done:
"Yesterday I spent Valentine's Day co-creating a container for 18 women dedicated to re-examining gender roles and dropping into exaltation. For some it came through the tenderness of tears and others a fierce reclaiming of the feminine. May we all walk with the awareness that we are already exalted, that despite strong messages from outside, there is nothing we need to do to become everything we ever wanted to be."
Last year's EXALT retreat left me in awe of the power of women coming together, not to mention massages, a beautiful angel playing the harp, and herbal yoni steams!
Learn more about what we have planned for you this year, and reserve your space before it fills up!
A thousand doves from my heart to yours,
