Women's Retreats

 Camila Nieuwlands and I curate beautiful intimate weekend environments where we  ‘Journey Into Stillness.’ Held at Birdsong Retreat & Sanctuary in The Temple of Venus, the retreats focus on providing an immersive, rejuvenating time away in sisterhood circle, in nature, and in community and offer an opportunity to connect to spirit within you. We weave in a variety of magical offerings including opening & closing circles, cacao ceremony, restorative yoga, mantra, journaling, singing, and shamanic breathwork. The group is kept small to a maximum of 12 participants.


Each retreat has a different theme and we bring teachings from our different lineages of study. A sample retreat schedule might look like:

Upcoming Retreats

Womans Autumn Retreat
13-15th May 2022
Birdsong Retreat & Sanctuary

As we approach Autumn and feel into Mother Nature’s rhythms take note ~ it is time to slow down, to root to the earth, to quieten and turn inwards. We will explore the magic of sacred silence, of nourishing ourselves physically, emotionally and spiritually so that we may intentionally wind down towards deep rest in Winter in order to be reborn anew in Spring
