🌷Temple with Katie Dove 🌷

In Temple, we meet in essence and come together to practice presence. We begin to develop a sensational relationship to nature and feel the Divine in everyday activities. Temple brings our bodies back to balance, increasing oxytocin and breaking the stress cycle. In sisterhood we dance, sing, chant, offer sacred touch and sit in silence with one another.

Katie Dove is an intuitive guide, healer, and teacher. She is a mystic and has been exploring esoteric teachings and mystery schools for over two decades. Katie’s gatherings and teaching consist of things she is fascinated by and often working on at the moment. They are a mixture of experiences she has collected over the years and things she has developed herself.

🎶 Sound & Song with Meghan Layne 🎶

Singing together is one of the oldest traditions that spans across cultures. When we sing together, we heal together. We use song to celebrate, to grieve, to love, to find humor, art and creativity. Your voice is an expression of your heart and your soul, waiting to be heard. No experience required for this workshop. Just a willingness to meet with your voice and offer it love. We’ll use vocal warmups to tone and strengthen the voice and learn songs that you can sing anytime your heart needs a dose of joy.

Meghan is a Life Coach and Community Song Leader. She helps women create intentional results in their lives by bringing more awareness to the thoughts and emotions that drive their behaviors, actions, and decisions. She believes everyone has the ability to sing and share their voice and that the voice is just an expression of our heart and our soul.

💃🏽 Integrated ~ Spine to Mind: Womb Wisdom Belly Dance with Adelaide Marcus 💃🏽

Our bellies carry profound emotions and insight. Adelaide specializes in sharing belly/womb dance as a healing art form, blending elements of qi gong, playfulness and ritual. We will explore movements that help you tune into your sensuality and innate womb wisdom. This workshop focuses on elongating the vertebrae, clearing stuck energy in the tummy, finding core-stability and creating a healthy integrated channel from spine to mind. Adelaide’s masterful teaching will guide you into embodying the dance by dropping you deeper into YOUR body and wise womb!

Adelaide celebrates life through art, expressive movement, and empowering others. Born of Syrian blood, Adelaide grew up near song and dance from the womb. She made her way into the spotlight when moving to San Diego in 2005 to create “The Shimmy Sisters” Middle Eastern Dance Company with her blood sister. Her career in entertainment carved the path to becoming an international performing artist and distinguished teacher. Her passion and her profession are one of the same. She has appeared on multiple TV shows, performed and taught worldwide, produced numerous events, created hundreds of visionary paintings, and taught countless classes.

🥑 Meals provided by Maddie Hamann's superstar kitchen team 🥑

Maddie’s meals are inspired by her lifelong passion for living in health, harmony, and balance with nature. As Maddie welcomes a new being into the world, we've put together a super team of sisters to prepare our meals in Maddie's style!

​The Celestial Sisters retreat at Liberty Arising is something that I look forward to going to with my daughter each time. We love being on the land and being with all of the amazing women and children who gather for each retreat. The facilitators do such a great job and all of the offerings are interesting and unique. Can't wait to head back out in October!

I would encourage you to attend a Celestial Sisters retreat at Liberty Arising! The land, the offerings, the food, and the facilitators are all amazing. I’ve been twice and can’t wait for the next one!

Thank you for a magical weekend! I feel refreshed and renewed and ready to jump back into my life.

I would recommend a Celestial Sisters Retreat to all women, a beautiful weekend to clear your monkey minds and remember who you truly are, and celebrate that.

I've participated in three Celestial Sisters retreats and each one has been unique and perfect in it's own way. The food is amazing and I love the flexible format where you can do as much or as little as you prefer. I find the classes/offerings to be a perfect balance of pushing through my comfort zone, but in a very safe, supportive environment.

I had such a relaxing, rejuvenating weekend with women only. It was peaceful and I was thankful to only drive an hour out of the city to be in nature. I loved all of it and I will be back again.

I was happy that, although I was surprised at the level of emotion that spilled out of me, breaking myself open let the stars in me fill my sky.
