A Year Long Journey Into The Wilderness Of Your Heart & Soul
Imagine being in a circle of women, steeped in sisterhood, and spending time outdoors with the collective intention to be the fullest, truest expression of yourself. You will be a part of a community that gathers to powerfully witness and support one another, while creating personal rites of passage in nature to return to that deep part of yourself that’s been lost. You will learn practices so that you can become deeply grounded and clear in your daily life.
Are you feeling…?
-Disconnected from the people you love because you are too preoccupied in your head
-Stuck in grief, sadness, overwhelm, confusion or anger (and fearful it will just get worse)
-Afraid that you will never feel like yourself again
-Too stressed to create and nurture authentic connections with others
-You live your life in front of a screen and never get to spend time outdoors
Who Are You When You Remember Yourself?
READY TO BE…
– YOURSELF again? Joyful. Free. Grounded. Alive!
– Clear and deliberate with your communication and decisions?
– The Woman You Know Yourself To Be!
– A part of a community of amazing, loving, supportive women?

This Yearlong Women’s Earth Spirit Circle brings together nature-based practices and embodied spiritual practices.
