Event description


4 day / 3 night Journey into Nature

July 13 - 16, 2017

*Limited to only 9 women

Come explore your edge, unleash your wild woman, reconnect with your primordial self and discover your erotic bliss in nature.

When we are in the wild, some primordial elemental part of us is awakened and we are reminded of our wholeness and what it is like to reclaim this WILD ESSENCE that is endless and timeless.


It is time to become conscious to your own inner roots and access your core radiance not only to yourself but this vast symbiotic relationship that lives and breaths around you.

On the 4 day journey you will be asked to fully surrender, travel into the depths of your soul, and be reborn as an alive, responsive, radiant human that has reclaimed her own innate wild essence.

Do you want to be taken on a journey where your inner and outer worlds meet?

We invite you to come and discover your true natured essence, primoridal self that is mirrored in the earth’s wild beauty.

It is nature's pure erotic innocence that we become fully alive to the unseen and connect to energies that we feel within our own bodies, the living organisms (trees, animals, plants), and the earth energies (air, water, fire) that presence can be felt on an energetic level but one that is personal to us. This is a personal journey of self discovery and reconnection to the WILD that lives inside YOU.

It is time! Overdue? Come awaken your wild essence in the national forest of the Jemez Mountains.

You will experience multiple hot springs, water falls, learn a new sacred stone Jade Egg practice, Kundalini activations, nature hikes and ceremony all designed to provide an unforgettable experience to unleash your inner wild woman.

When we are in the wild, some primordial elemental part of us awakens to this truth that we are in communion with life that moves all around us.

Give yourself permission to really notice, honor, liberate and integrate life energies that have been caught up and deeply entangled in old experiences, emotions, and beliefs.
