Emergence

A transformational women's retreat, on the
Sunshine Coast of beautiful British Columbia
 
March 16-19th 2023

When we gather together in sacred womb space, our power magnifies and our ability to heal is amplified. It is here in the safe space and sanctity of sisterhood that we are welcome to come undone, to unravel our trauma’s, and express the depths of our vulnerability, offering our dance, our songs and tears as sacred prayers. It is through gathering together in soulful presence that we remember and awaken the treasures that are buried within us, finding the pearls of wisdom that reveal who we truly are.

This Womb Weaving retreat is a multi-faceted journey of healing the wounds held within the womb and embracing the feminine mystery within. A quest to meet and connect with the depths of your feminine soul while awakening your bodies innate power; tapping into the reservoir of unreserved love that is ready to be expressed passionately through your being.

During this retreat, you will be held by the lush forests of British Columbia, as we cycle through a program that will take you through the phases of womanhood, deepening your connection to your wild soul self. In this powerful container, you will awaken your Divine compass, leading your way into feminine surrender and open receptivity. You will become one with the elements of nature and be invited to welcome all of yourself; the good, the bad and the ugly, finding greater acceptance, self-love and embodied forgiveness, through the process of coming home.

It is ever important to continue growing and deepening in connection with community; sharing our medicine and embracing one another in grounded presence. During our time together, you will be given the opportunity to experience the magic of alchemy that is birthed through gathering in flesh and bone, with other women who hold similar intentions. You will weave a beautiful tapestry of feminine healing and welcome more awareness into your body; birthing yourself and the ways you relate to the world, anew.

Take a moment to think about how good it will feel listening to the sounds of the crashing waves, as you soak in the hot tub overlooking the breathtaking view of the mountains, letting go of a limiting belief that you have been housing for a long time... 

 

How good does it feel to walk beside the oceanfront, feeling the warm breeze on your face and hearing the sounds of eagles soaring above you?

 

How does it sound to hear the laughter, prayers and songs of women opening and uplifting your heart?

 

To smell the delicious aroma’s of fresh organic food and nourishing elixirs being prepared for your body temple?

 

The emerging light of Spring returning, welcoming you and the blossoming flowers all around you into your  radiance and unique expression of love?

“What if one’s tendency to go wandering off is truly a gift? What if the driving force beneath the curiosity that leads a person to wander off the beaten path is not immaturity, but the wild, untamable Spirit of God, drawing them into the wild to be refined, to discover fresh insights, and pioneer a new way forward for a new group of people?”
~Brandan Roberston 

Where We Will Stay:

Halfmoon Haven Ocean front Resort & Spa


The oceanfront property is located on one of the most secluded beaches on the Sunshine Coast: Welcome Beach (just 2 hours from Vancouver). This magnificent property is surrounded by nature offering a therapeutic hot tub facing the Pacific Ocean with magnificent views of the Gulf Islands, as well as a steam room, sauna and full service spa. All retreat activities will be held within the ceremonial yurt on the property. 

This particular property and bay was a gathering place to replenish and rest part way along the canoe journeys that would happen regularly along these Coastal regions. With its “half moon” shaped bay, it has been a safe haven in storms with the way the tides run, and the protection of Mary and Thormanby Islands, not to mention the potent ley lines that run through the center of the property for hundreds and hundreds of years.

Its lush surroundings (that are still present today) were plentiful and diverse in its biosphere, rich with various medicines, plants, animals and a range of bird life. This land is and has been a place historically used to stop, rest, cleanse, heal, and regain important energy for the next part of the journey.
