The Earth is calling us home, beckoning our senses to come fully alive

and to remember the magic we are!


We are showing up for the call to reweave a culture that honors relationships to all life. This is a calling to celebrate and empower our inner freedom. It is time for us to remember who we are beneath all the layers of experiences and roles we’ve taken in this life.

It is time to sync up with the rhythms of nature and begin to create from our hearts, with integrity and grace. When we gather together to truly see each other and hold space for our wholeness, an immaculate transformation can take place individually and collectively. We come to see our lives through radical transparency and learn to own every bit of it – both the shadows and the gifts. 

The elemental journey we will take- held in the arms of the most ancient mountains and waters on earth,  with trusting sisters of the deep: invites your wild soul to feast, and to gather up her intuitive forces and creativity needed in these times. A sacred space to lay down what no longer serves, to cleanse and to bolster your courage and wildness for the journey that lies ahead. 


How can we become a delicious gift to the Earth by the way we dance, sing, pray and make beauty with our hands?

Join us for this 5-day wilderness immersion to experience earth skills, ceremonial arts and deep nature connection.

You’ll experience:

〜Setting up clean & safe base camp 〜 Fire by friction 〜 Rope making (Tulip Poplar cordage) 〜 Embodiment practices & breathwork 〜 Wild foods & medicine foraging  〜 Clay crafts & offerings 〜 Play & song sharing 〜 Waterfall & cave exploration 〜 Cacao & tea circle 〜 Drum journey & Ceremonial arts 〜 Arrow breaking ceremony〜 Solo time in forest 〜

Empowering connection & more!〜
