The Embodied Sacred Feminine


This collaborative offering with Marilu Shinn, shamanic practitioner and keeper of sacred medicine, is one that we have both been deeply called to. Ancestral veneration needs to become a common language people speak again. These times have created such heavy separation that folks have forgotten how much they actually receive from their ancestors and the cultures they come from. To know them is to know yourself and to ignore them is to ignore and disrespect yourself. To embody the seed of The Sacred Feminine in you and allow it to grow, we must create Space within ourselves.
In this two day retreat we will dive deep into ancestral healing and into places you need closure, forgiveness and releasing.


We will dance in waters of our ancestral grief, descend and ascend, celebrate and integrate!


You will journey into the subconscious via shamanic journeys and through potent channeling by Marilu and myself. You will see where you are still holding yourself and your Ancestors back And emerge more integrated, whole and embodied; as the sacred fememinine creatures that we are. When we release old stories and inherent patterns and create new space within allowing the quality of our energy field and vibration to amplify. We are then able to walk more in our truth, unapologetically. We will alchemize old stories into sources of power and create ancestral altars to honor where we come from - our roots- and those that came before us and those that will come after us!
