⚡️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 is a mixture of experiences she has collected over the years and things she has developed herself.
✨Ideal Woman Examined with Mara Harris ✨
This interactive group process will include open discourse and deep self-examination of womanhood. In real time, we will define this “womanhood” through individual, familial, cultural, and global impacts. This examination will run the gamut from our personal to community relationships with other women; we will pause to recognize the affect these women have had on our psyche and our individual expression. How have these impacts shaped our conscious/unconscious, internal-external expression of being woman? Together we will identify the influences, expectations, dictations, and yearnings that shape our set-up of the ideal woman.
MaraH facilitates self and community expansion by opening dialogue about spiritual-mental-physical health as it pertains to our womanhood/female-hood/personhood. In her own life, she continues to dive into the exploration of what it means deeply personally and socially to play with and maneuver through the parameters of the ideal of woman. MaraH writes: The ideal woman is not fixed, anchored or even innate, it never will be, and would be best created and understood in relationship to our own very very personal experience and in examination of the experience of others around us, culturally and globally.

💫 Voice, Sound & Song with Meghan Layne 💫
We’ll be exploring the power of sound as we use vocal exercises to relax, release and strengthen energy within, as well as enjoy making music together. The voice and throat chakra are powerful energy centers within the body, ones that receive great benefit from accessing sound to awaken those areas. You will feel a sense of personal power, self-expression, and joyful resonance as we sound & sing together. No experience is necessary to participate in this workshop. The sound and voice exercises are great for all ages and musical levels! The songs will be easy to learn and perfectly tuned for this group setting.
Meghan Layne is a Life Coach, Women’s Sexuality Coach, singer, dancer, and hugger! She believes in the power of mindful actions, deliberate thinking, and intentional feeling to create a life worth living for. She helps women feel comfortable in their own skin, radiant in their bodies, and healthy, sacred and whole in their sexuality. She sings out of pure love for the music, dances out of pure joy, and hugs to simply spread the love.
✨Rise & Refresh with Christina Guist ✨
Christina will guide us through an invigorating morning Hatha Yoga practice, an accessible breath-to-movement flow with delightful sprinkles of pranayama, mantra, mudra and marma point self-massage guaranteed to brighten your senses.
Throughout ten years practicing therapeutic bodywork, Christina has felt firsthand the resilience and potential of the human body. In her yoga classes, she shares the movement practice central to her own process of self-care. Her instruction offers students safe yet dynamic breath-centered sequences that connect them to the innate wisdom and power of their bodies.
⚡️Tincture Bar with Catherine Jantzi ⚡️
Cat is excited to co-create a tincture bar and yoni steam bar with you at our upcoming mother and daughter retreat. We will play and learn with herbal medicine directed towards the feminine and, according to your own specific needs, you will make your own special wellness blends to optimize your health. Tinctures are amazing because they only get better with age, never expire, and are potent in small doses. Yoni steams are one of the most important ways to cleanse and mend the sacral chakra. You will learn how to do your own steam at home. Through all of her years connecting with the herbal world, Cat has found these two forms have had the most beneficial effects.
Catherine Jantzi is a holistic healer by nature, interweaving Eastern and Western modalities to optimize health. She is a Registered Nurse, Lactation Consultant, and Holistic Health Practitioner. She has trained abroad in Thailand to study Thai massage, and Guatemala to study Mayan Abdominal Womb Healing. Her practices combine a variety of modalities, including Reiki, Craniosacral Therapy, and Sound Healing, as well as creating herbal tinctures and yoni steams.
