Journey through Five Earth Archetypes to Unleash Your Full Feminine Power

It’s time to embody and express from your wild soul – the part of you that knows you are one with deserts, forests, rivers, mountains, and meadows.  To break free of the fears and cages that hold you back. To experience yourself and the Earth as the powerful, embodied Feminine.

The Course

Are you ready to unleash your creative, passionate and authentic self in service of living and giving more fully?
During this three-day retreat you will take a feminine journey of initiation into the deepest aspects of your untamed soul through Five Earth Archetypes:

Desert Woman: Barren Worlds

Enter the Barren Worlds of Desert Woman to shed what is no longer working in your life. 


Forest Woman: The Dark Womb

 The Dark Womb of Forest Woman to incubate the seeds of your dreams.


Ocean and River Woman: The Waters Break

Ride the waves of your longings in the breaking waters of Ocean and River Woman.


 Mountain Woman: Giving Birth

Give birth to your fullness Mountain Woman.


Grassland Woman: Nurturing the Newborn

Nurture Your Rewilded Self as Grassland Woman..

Over thousands of years a patriarchal society has perfected the art of holding WOMAN back. But that system has run its course.
Now we root ourselves in a far more ancient way of being—the natural wisdom that arises from the Earth herself, and that lives and breathes within each of us, waiting to be awakened.
This initiation is feminine, instinctual, embodied, and Earth-conscious––infused with poetry (read and written), ritual, nature connection, visualisations, journaling, meditation, and movement.
Making the most of the beautiful grounds of Hawkwood, we’ll explore its woodlands and ancient springs as we dive deeply into our own wild inner landscapes in search of true purpose and passion.

Until we learn to be a little less tame, a little less obedient, we will never live from the heart of our true nature and the richness of our wild, unstoppable souls ...


I wanted to thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your course "A Wild Soul Woman." Participating in it was transformative for me, and I believe the transformations will continue well into the future. How I see myself, Nature, other people, and the rest of the world has changed. I loved your teachings, the poetry and music, the concepts - and I loved the community of such creative and powerful women.
- Past participant, MaryBeth Mannarino
Thank you for these heart warming words you gave us so much on this wild woman journey. I am still digesting, reflecting dancing and hungry for more.
- Past participant, Lorraine Spring-Taylor
