So many of us forget or never really trusted that we, as women, have a subterranean treasure chest of wisdom inside. As we grow older our yearning to dive deep to retrieve and use those gifts can falter in the wake of a culture who has not fully valued women nor elders. Inside our hearts, our psyches, our bodies, is a reservoir of riches that needs to be remembered and used. This is not a time of falling asleep, but of awakening to give ourselves to a world that desperately needs women to rise.

Van der Ryn Eco-Refuge ~ Architecture in Nature
near Pt. Reyes National Seashore
How many of us can say that we deeply love ourselves? Too many of us are hammered daily by voices of judgement, alienation, condemnation and hatred, coming from our own voracious minds. If we are to rise as forces of nature in the world now, when it is so desperately needed, we MUST move from the vibrant core of our most fundamental substance...that vibrational essence inside each and every one of us that is genuine, is true, is wise, is deeply compassionate, and is Nature. We cannot go on giving a feigned love to others that isn't growing directly from an overflowing well of our own generous and honest respectful love of ourselves...yes, a love for our hearts, our minds, our souls AND our bodies! When we finally land in the warm pool of an honest surrendered acceptance and love of who we truly are, those around us will feel it and it will become a benevolent virus for all women the world over.
Through time of quiet reflection, communing with Nature, movement and listening, we will do just that...remember our very particular and essential place in this time. As well we will bless ourselves with amazing food, ceremony, time on the beach, hot tub warmth and rest.
Jade and Delisa will guide and facilitate poignant experiences of movement, body-centered awareness, nature communion, mutual mirroring, council and supported space for dialogues and inquiry to send us forward feeling full and in love!
