I create & hold space for women to rest & reconnect.
My gift is creating experiences, opportunities, and spaces that allow women to retreat, reconnect, and find the way back home to themselves. This happens through truth telling and letting go, self-nourishment, and intentional living- not easy for us in the busy, ambitious and competitive world many of us live in! Whether we are retreating under the new moon for a 3-hour Red Tent or we are immersing ourselves in nature for the weekend, stepping away from the demands and distractions of everyday life allows us to pause, think, and just be. Many of us feel disconnected. We feel disconnected from our selves, from our roots, from a purpose or sense of meaning, from nature, from the Universe. The gatherings I host offer space, support and inspiration for this journey of reconnection.
Intuition guides me. Experience informs me. Training supports me.
I had been serving and supporting others as a Wellness & Recovery Coach as well as a Wellness & Recovery Program Director for years before being guided into the specific work I do today with women. However, empowering others and helping them reconnect to their own wisdom and truth has been part of my "work" for a long time. Even in my more corporate roles such as Human Resources Director, my focus was always on supporting the individual and helping them reclaim their own power and be true to themselves. In 2016, an intuitive knowing and a wave of synchronicities and guidance arrived, leading me down this road of honoring the feminine and creating gatherings, ceremonies and simple spaces for women to reconnect, remember, heal and find nourishment and support.
