An Initiation

8 Week Online Course & 4 Day Gathering

Tending the Wisdom. Weaving the Future.

Screen Shot 2019-10-27 at 2.04.54 PM.png

This online course serves as the next step in the Wild Woman Initiation.

Following a Wild Woman Retreat when our hearts are finally allowed to come home to each other and our highest truths, an awakening happens.

Yet, often, the true work begins once we go home. When we have to figure out how to retain the remembering, how to carry the wisdom, and how to keep our hearts alive in a world that feels unsupportive of these truths.

That’s what this course is born out of. A real, tangible way to stay connected & to continue the journey together. To continue the learning. The becoming and unbecoming. To heal together. And ultimately, to start the work of creating a new way of living with women/life at the center, in relationship with the earth, and from a heart centered, wise, and woven place.

We must create the new systems, new stories, and new ways of being in the world. We must be the change ourselves. We are the ones responsible for planting the seeds for a new way of being that is simultaneously ancient and rooted.

This is a devotion to you and all those who came before you. A devotion to your own aliveness.

Can’t make the Weekend? Want to do the Course Only?

We, of course, encourage you to do the weekend with the course as it is built for the weekend to be the completion and “graduation” of the course. However, we understand life, so if you can only commit to the course you can do so below. You can always choose to join the weekend later, but the price will increase.

The Elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above water.
And I say, see who is in the river with you and celebrate!
At this time in history, we are taking nothing personally, least of all ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey come to a halt.
The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves!
Banish the word ‘struggle’ from your attitude and your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.
We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
— Hopi Elder's Prophecy

Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. Where do I fly into? Fly into San Diego International Airport. We can help arrange transportation to the Retreat Center. It is approximately one hour east of San Diego.

  2. What time does the retreat start and end? Arrive by 12:00pm on Friday the 6th. We will end around 11:00am on Monday the 9th.

  3. What is the weather like at the Retreat Center? It is high dessert. Meaning it will likely be 60s-70s during the day and chillier at night (into the upper 40s and low 50s). Bring layers! We will send out a packing list and much more to make sure you will be well prepared for the weekend and weather.

  4. What if I can only do the course? We prefer you do it all together as it is meant to build up to the gathering but if you can’t make it, message me, I am happy to make something work!

  5. What if I can’t pay it all up front? No worries! Send me a message and we can make a payment plan that feels good to you!

  6. Will you be offering this again in the future? Likely not until next fall 2020. This is super special pilot program for alumni and I am not sure I will offer it again in this way.
