Since time immemorial, women have gathered to celebrate, honor and support life. In doing so
we form a sisterhood deeply rooted in our own authentic nature. As we join together to share
our stories across a spectrum of years, we hear echoes of our own wisdom and intuitive
knowing, and we remind each other that we are enough; we are beautiful; we are powerfully
In this program we create a clearing in our lives to restore what has been forgotten,
fragmented or diminished. Ceremony invites us to take time to slow down and to find what we
may have lost in the frenetic pace and challenges of our daily lives. We pause. We listen. We
take notice of what is emerging through that body-sensing way of our feminine nature.
Welcome to our intergenerational village! We do not go out to be tested, to prove our
worthiness or strength, but rather to return to our natural rhythms and rootedness. We
remember our essential nature as the wild humans we are, empowered to trust our instincts, unearthing the essence in our bones. In our blood we feel the yearning to trust our innate
attunement and body wisdom, letting go of the familiar habits of struggle and striving so we
can respond with relaxed strength and awareness.
As women, we come together to renew our connection to the more than human world and to
better understand our current life passage and stage of growth. Through immersion in wild
nature, the teachings of the Four Shields, ritual and community, we gain clarity on what is
ripening within us and ready to be revealed, so that we may step more confidently into our
potential and aliveness. As we nourish the inner well, we discover our beauty.
This 10-day vision fast ceremony, led by two experienced guides, involves four days of
preparation, three days of solo, and three days of reincorporation, to support and hold your
emergence. Following a pan-cultural model of transitions, this ceremony moves through the
three stages of severance (preparation) – threshold (solo) – reincorporation (return).
Living nature is your mirror and source of transformation, and we will dive deep into this
exploration of inner and outer communion. Our women’s community is witness to the layers
you shed and the new identity you may find.
