Join us for The Wildwoman Retreat
September 23 – 25, 2016
Clear away old crap and cultural constructs that have kept you caged
Embody your wild vast creative feminine power
Liberate your indigenous soul
The Wildwoman lives in all women.
Whether pressed underground or fully expressed in our lives, she will not be denied. She demands our attention through anxiety, depression, exhaustion, illness, drama and addictions if she cannot get our attention any other way. We need her vitality, her feral juiciness, her instinctual knowing, her disregard for bullshit and her creative receptivity in order thrive.
–Juicy, sensual and embodied: The Wildwoman celebrates her sexuality. She is the embodiment of the Divine Feminine on Earth. She adores and adorns her own body with reverence and delight. She does not desecrate her vessel with those who do not treat her well. She does not settle for crumbs of comfort. She enjoys her body on her own terms. She knows her worth and waits for what she wants. She is whole unto herself and fully available for love and communion.
–Energized and full of vitality: The Wildwoman cares for herself in such a way that she feels nourished, replenished, inspired and ready for action. She also knows when to rest and does not give herself a hard time about it. She trusts her own innate rhythms and seasons.
–Deeply connected to the Earth and the Cosmos – The Wildwoman lives in deep communion and sacred reciprocity with Mother Earth. She listens to the trees, the rivers, the stones, the wind and all of the creature teachers. She recognizes the signs being sent to her in every moment. She remembers that we are all star dust and shines her own Light out into the world as a beacon to those who are ready to wake up.
–Free from cultural conditioning: The Wildwoman chooses her actions each day from the wisdom and guidance of her own soul, not the timelines or expectations of anyone or anything outside of herself. She trusts her intuitive knowing and she’s not afraid to say “I don’t have a f…ing clue!” She knows that she will know when she knows. There is no rush. She’s right on time.
–Unafraid of her wild, vast, feminine power: The Wildwoman says “YES” to her YES and she honors her NO. She does not make herself small to make others comfortable. She does not waste her precious time, energy or attention on people or situations that are not in alignment with who she really is. She uses her power and her fierce, loving presence to create the new world, one breath at a time.
–Inhabits her Wholeness: The Wildwoman embraces her Light and Dark, her strength and vulnerability, her Maiden and Mother, her Witch and Warrioress, her Sexuality and Sovereignity, her Emotions and her Brilliance, her Sensitivity and her Knowing, her Love and her Fears, her Grief and her Anger.
–Supported by Community: In owning her wholeness, the Wildwoman attracts a tribe of people who can meet her. As long as we are in resistance, repression, denial or shame of any part of ourselves we will resist our partners, our friends, our children and the opportunities that life is trying to bring to us.
–Trusts herself: The Wildwoman feels safe within herself because she knows how to BE WITH whatever arises within her – rather than numbing, reacting, distracting, acting out, or seeking someone else to soothe her uncomfortable feelings. As long as we look to others to make us safe we will never feel safe. It is only through the practice of becoming a safe space for ourselves that we are able to offer safety to the world.
–Lives from Abundance: The Wildwoman knows no lack. She makes requests and asks for what she wants from a place of calm co-creation rather than from desperation or demanding. If the answer is “No,” she will be OK. There are lots of other options available for her.

Mountain Light Sanctuary is a secluded Shangri-La hidden deep in a mountain cove in the Pisgah National Forest, 35 minutes north of Asheville, NC. It is bordered by two cascading creeks and ringed by the highest mountains in the eastern USA. It’s energy and ambiance are purely magical.
The Sanctuary is a gateway between the human world of “busy” and “doing” and the natural world of harmony and “being.” It is a departure point for exploring hundreds of miles of trails meandering through the half million acres of National Forest, or inner explorations from your own special spot under an ancient hemlock, on a mossy rock amid the ferns, or in a secluded grotto beside the creek.
