IN MY PAST I OFTEN TIMES FOUND MYSELF THINKING THESE THINGS……..If only for a short time, I could get away and receive nourishment and reflection. I crave connections with women that are looking to spiritually evolve and grow. I just cant keep doing the winery tours or the shopping trips with my lady friends. I desire a deeper connection to a sisterhood that I haven’t found yet, a sacred container where I am SAFE, HELD, and WITNESSED! I know my prayers that I say to God are important, but there’s something more, and I can’t quite put my finger on it. It seems there has been something long forgotten in the hearts and spirits of our collective Divine Feminine wisdom…… our lost sacred ceremonial knowledge. I long to sit in circle with other women to express full reverence to all the life giving elements and to pay full observance in the connection to the other world, the REALM OF SPIRIT. I am tired, and weary with the endless day on repeat. Wake, eat, work, task, care for everyone’s needs, crash, burn and……REPEAT!

I wish I Could Afford the time and money it requires to replenish my soul, but simply….I can’t.

But is this really true?

Have you ever truly asked yourself whats at the root of that truth, where does this even come from?

Most importantly do you want to continue NOT LIVING out your longings, and keep this way of life going for yourself?

What will that cost you ultimately?

This Retreat is for you!

Julie Kouyate and Dori Edwards are all about reclaiming the sacred element back into our daily busy lives. This retreat was born from a true desire for women to live FULLY and FREELY under the true expression of the Divine Feminine principle.

Throughout our time working with women to bring the sacred back to the everyday, and to truly embody their creative genius, we have discovered that women have a DEEP wound. The wound of self-worth is a consistent backstory for most women. We are keeping the wounding alive by adhering to ideas about how we MUST be, act, and express our deepest truth. This is getting in the way of our true capacity for living in our joy potential.

I often hear women speak such words as “I cant move that sensually”, “I am not an artist” “who am I to claim that” “I can’t speak my truth, someone might not like it” “I cant dance, or sing”, ” I could never say those things”, “I am not lucky” I cant manifest like she can” ……this ALL boils down to the same thing NOT FEELING WORTHY!

But believe me sister you are!

Each year we hold 2 local Retreats in Ann Arbor, Michigan on 22 beautiful and quiet acres called Hempress farms.

Next Local Retreat Dates are June 10-12th
