Becoming :Rituals, Ceremonies, & Sisterhood Circles
August 16th - 18th
In the heart of every woman beats the longing to sit with her sisters, to break open, to deeply connect, to gather and share her vulnerability, her joys, her fears and her dreams. Take the time to DIVE into your divine grace; celebrating your femininity, learning to move through all of life’s challenges with grace and ease with the support of each other.
BECOMING: Rituals, Ceremonies, & Sisterhood Circles is a magical weekend designed to AWAKEN the strength & wisdom within all women. Through sacred ancient rituals and ceremonies practiced by women for thousands of years, we will BECOME the divine feminie Goddessess we were born to be. Our Sisterhood Circles will remind us of our sensitivity, our healing powers and uncover your deepest desires and MAGIC of being a WOMAN.
