Who Is the Retreat For?

It’s for you if you are wondering where you mojo went and can’t get it back. If you are longing to have a nature emersion experience and gentle yet firmly re-calibration of your nervous system. If you are called into community and connection with other women on the same journey as you. Or if you are wanting to reconnect with your dreaming and visioning and are seeking a new vision for your life. 

We can’t connect to our dreaming or our heart magic & soul mojo if our nervous system is dis regulated. So we need to address that first. “We (Patricia and Elaine) bring a unique combination of many years of integrative health, wellness and shamanic healing practices to the table. And it is our pleasure and privilege to offer them to you in this unique experience close to nature far away from the “madding crowd”. 

The Experience


Immerse yourself in powerful sacred ceremonies that open your heart and foster deep connections with self , nature and other.These transformative experiences allow for profound emotional healing, growth, and the cultivation of meaningful right relationship to all our relations.


Through the physical exercises and education offered, you'll experience improved flexibility on multiple levels. Not only will you find increased physical fluidity through activities like stretching and movement sessions  you'll also witness enhanced mental and spiritual flexibility. This newfound flow empowers you to navigate life's challenges with greater ease and adaptability.

Some form of this will be offered daily outside in nature. 


By taking the time to rest, recover, and restore yourself ~  both with our guidance and your own deep listening ~ in a supportive and nourishing environment, you will begin to feel a new level of expansion as your nervous system comes back into rest and digest. 


By focusing on grounding practices and intentional self-care, you can cultivate a stronger sense of balance in your life. This balance helps you to find stability and inner peace amid the demands of daily life.


Through sacred ceremonies /rituals and a deep connection to the land, you'll have the opportunity to tap into the Divine Source within yourself and in the world around you. This connection awakens your creativity, heals past wounds, and ignites a sense of purpose and inspiration within. By aligning with the Divine, you'll experience a profound sense of inner guidance, fulfillment, and spiritual growth.
