Everything we thought we could trust has disintegrated. 

 

Everyday, the depths of the control and indoctrination continues to reveal itself. 

 

We’ve lost friends and family from speaking our truth and questioned almost every aspect of life. 

 

Our entire lives have been forced online… 

 

The intensity of this time has been a struggle - the fear, heartbreak, upheaval of our lives, and new levels of terror moving through our bodies.

 

AND yet, more than ever, we’ve felt the longing for a new way of being on this earth.

 

A bubbling up, a remembering, of what this life could be. A hunger to find women like us.........

  • To be nestled in the Blue Ridge mountains, gathered on beautiful, sacred land with 100 other wild women

  • To dance, hug, smile, sing, and howl under the full moon like the wild woman you are -- sweat dripping off your forehead, feet firmly connected to the earth, and your spirit high on the sweetness of sisterhood!

  • To soak in wise woman wisdom everyday through workshops, circles and deep conversation.

  • To speak honestly and openly about everything and anything with women who *totally* get it. 

  • To have the deep ache in your bones for true sisterhood be finally filled as you share stories around the fire, hand your baby off to another, and sit in circle as women have always done.

  • To be far, far away from the masks, vaccines, and fear. 

Are you longing for real, in-person, eye-to-eye, skin-to-skin, sisterhood? 

 

It's time to go from feeling isolated and drained to knowing the soul nourishing, vitalizing, and healing force of authentic sisterhood.

Wild Nature Movement

Have you ever moved like a wave, sang like a whale, or tapped your body like a drum

Inspired by the movements of nature and the power of sound, Allison Benner uses her Wild Nature Movement as an emergent movement and sounding practice crowd sourced in realtime from the wisdom of its participants and the momentary expression of nature that surround us.

In this practice, imagination is the teacher and mother nature our guide.

Soul Voice Singing

Shylah Ray is a self-trained professional vocalist, singing coach and guide to vocal empowerment. 

This individualized work can include resolving emotional blockages in the vocal center, increasing self-esteem, eliminating guilt and shame in using ones voice, creating more power and confidence in public speaking, singing, songwriting, performing and more.

In this workshop, we will explore the voice through meditation, breath, vocal warm-ups and exercises, and of course, singing together as a group.

Detonate Your Good Girl with Dominique Christina

You are in the occupation of one body. Situated in one world. For a time. For women the conditioning is often (most always) to be a “good girl.” And that usually means be palatable. Be politically correct. Be easily conquered.

This workshop is an invitation to be feral.

To author your womanness radically.

To say no to being a “good girl.”

To jut out in service of your gifts...unapologetically woman...and free.

Experience the ancestral magic that is gathering and foraging in sisterhood and plant allyship, a ritual as old as time herself. 

We will discuss the importance of plant communication and relationship tending, respectful wildcrafting, medicinal plants, and more.

Sage Starry Guiding for the Now-and-Soon.

There is a saying, "history never repeats itself, but it rhymes." Astrology is the study of cosmic rhyme.

Astrologers watched the year 2020 approach with bated breath, knowing that the incoming planetary alignments indicated a major shift in era for Planet Earth.  

So now what? For sense-making and guidance, let's look at the maps.

Intuitive astrologer Virginia Rosenberg will break down the skyscape of the current context of astrology transits and together we will summon the highest potentials of possibility available to us as sovereign co-creators with the Earth and cosmos.

Grief Circle

Grief becomes bearable when it's witnessed and held.

Join Emilee Saldaya and Hannah Grace Taylor for a powerful grief circle to voice the grief you're carrying.

Together, we'll make stick bundles, sing songs of surrender, and witness each other. 

We'll then offer our stick bundles to the first fire of the night.
