Event description


From the Death of Winter comes the Rebirth into New Life! Awaken To You!

For many of us the winter has been cold and rough. It has left us out in the frost and stranded in our cocoons. However, Spring is coming. New Life and Light will grow from the dirt and blossom into something so magnificent. We will breathe in the air and smell the new breeze coming our way. We will begin to see growth, where there was a snow covered floor. We will be so grateful for this new life and understand the blessing and curse of the Winter we have just laid to rest.

Spring is upon us and it is time to Awaken To You!

It is time to rise up from the darkness and hibernation, see the new light and awaken to who we are. Will you join me to celebrate this time near the Spring Equinox? Will you join me to remember who you ARE? Will you join me sister?

Imagine gathering with heart-centered women to connect deeply with nature, community and your own mind, body and Spirit. Spending time in a drum circle, guided journey, sacred fire release and reconnecting with what YOU truly desire and feel for 2019! You will have time to journal. meditate and go within on your own and with time to join in circle and ceremony!

We will gather Saturday afternoon, March 16th on this beautiful land, to meet, connect with ourselves, each other and our own sacred paths.
