Listen, Enjoy, Savor: Bloom with Wild Joy

Saturday, June 24, 9 a.m. - 2 p.m.

In wildness is the preservation of the world. — Henry David Thoreau

Dear Wild Flowers,

Summer is a time for celebration and savoring. It's a time to honor the bounty of our inner nature and the abundant blessings of we carry through our soul presence. The Solstice time has traditionally been a time of merriment and celebration, honoring the longest day of the year by staying up all night and dancing with the fairy folk. 

 

In this spirit, I am again offering a special retreat day, Listen, Enjoy, Savor: Bloom with Wild Joy, on Saturday, June 24 from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. at our home.

 

I'd love for you to be a part of this gathering! Will you join us?! 

 

This will be an intimate group of heart-full women for a day of savoring beauty, inner listening, energetic aligning and deepening into what your soul most needs for you to thrive this season.

 

We will draw upon the rhythms of the summer solstice, the archetype of "weeds" and our wild self, the element of wind, the wisdom of Grandfather Oak Tree, Crow, Spider and Goddess Ishtar. There will be guided group energy work to clear and attune you more deeply to your essential nature, ample time outside on the land listening and connecting to intuitive guidance from the natural world and your soul, thoughtful ritual and ceremony, yummy spread of food, the joy of being in circle with other women and....other surprise treats. 

We'll explore these themes…
  • What wild callings of your heart need honored?
  • What special magic do you carry that is longing for fuller expression?
  • What parts of your self are calling for loving presence and witnessing?
  • How might this summer be filled with more wild joy for you?
AND!!! Special for this gathering — because I want to entice you to attend AND desire to individually support your own journey to bloom with even more wild joy — I'm offering you a 30-minute Human Design reading or shamanic journey as my gift to you after the retreat.

I resonate deeply with Angeles Arrien's credo to "walk the mystical path with practical feet," and it's the compass for my teaching and sessions. I'll be your guide and co-journeyer on the path with you, offering my best tools and support for you to connect more deeply with your soul's knowing and wisdom. I love to create a special space for you to be deeply nourished and receive abundant value your investment of time, energy and money in a retreat day. I follow-up these gatherings with 10-plus pages of practices and tools for you to continue to deepen and anchor what you learn at home.

 

These past few months, I have been deeply in my own process of honoring the wild in nature and within myself. As part of this journey, I'm currently in Asheville, NC on a solo trip exploring the Blue Ridge mountains before attending a retreat where we will spend our days dancing and painting. Then our family is headed to the Pacific Northwest for more wild beauty (rainforest, waterfalls, wild coast, redwoods and more) — and we return two days before our gathering. I look forward to sharing with you what messages and wisdom emerge from my continuing explorations of wildness in nature and my soul.

 

Let's be in the spirit and mystery of exploring the wild callings of our heart his summer!

 

Will you please come to enjoy and savor your one wild and precious life with me on June 24?
