A weekend of deepening in communion with the wise woman within...

These mountains hold ancient wisdom, sister. The same wisdom that courses through your veins.

Come spend some time with her… see her light reflected in your sisters… these women that have shown up just for you.

Retreat in to three days of sacred ceremony, energy medicine, inner alchemy, women's circle, and the magic of sisterhood.


Shadows and Light...

In this circle we step in to the shadow, to remember our light.

In this circle we know it is safe to take off our masks and be fully seen.

In this circle we reconnect with our deepest selves, our true nature, our sisters, our magic.

In this circle we journey within and spiral with the sacred feminine.


Our time together

We will step in to sacred circle Friday afternoon at 3:00p.m. & we will step out of circle on Sunday at 4:00p.m. In order to keep an intimate alchemical container for us to dive deep with one another, we will welcome up to 15 sisters.

Some of our time together will include:

* Sacred Fire Ceremony

* Water Blessing & Purification Ceremony

* Shadow Alchemy

* Weekend long Women's Circle

* Dark Moon & New Moon Visioning

* Energy Medicine

* Kundalini Reiki

* Sound Healing ~ Crystal Singing Bowl

* Deepening in Sisterhood Connections

* Journeying deep within the self

* Expanding our relationship with self-healing

We will play with the archetypes of The Empress/Mother, The High Priestess/Crone, and The Star/Maiden, all while receiving the support of plant allies, the elements, and the energetics that reveal themselves in our sacred container.

Friday we begin our journey with connection. On this balsamic moon eve, we will come together to come home to the self. Presencing ourselves in to our sacred circle & communing with the heart of the oldest mountains in the world. Grounded in sister connection, we will share a meal, share our hearts, and close our evening with sound healing and a clearing meditation.

Saturday we will dive deeper into our inner world and feel the stirrings of our shadow on this day of the dark moon. This necessary alchemy is foundational to our time together. Knowing, accepting, and appreciating all parts of our light is rooted in this work of shadow alchemy. Our day will also include time with the sacred land and sacred self, a fire release ceremony, group energy medicine, kundalini reiki, and three meals together.

Sunday's new moon is an opportunity to step forward as embodied wholeness, aligned truth, and pure light... anchoring this knowing deep into our bones. With sacred circle, a water blessing & purification ceremony, and waterfall visioning; we will clear our body temple & energetics, and integrate our weekend while attuning to the frequency of our YES! Our final day together includes two nourishing meals.

All experiences are optional. While we will be immersed in the alchemy of circle throughout the weekend, there will be opportunities for time with yourself, the land, and deepening in connection with like-hearted women.




Our retreat home is the beautiful ChakraSamvara center, aka Wheel of Bliss in Hot Springs, NC about an hour from Asheville. We have 63 acres of land, rolling meadows, creeks, streams, waterfalls, lush forests, and mountain trails to ourselves. Our sacred land in the Appalachian mountains backs up to national forests.

Sister agreements

This is not a weekend of simple mindset shifts that you will leave with and soon forget. This is a deep energetic transmission, sister. One your soul remembers. This is a space YOU have called in to your life for your own expansion, integration, and being. Journey by the fire with us, receive wisdom from our ancient earth, step in to this space of love and support so that you may walk forward in this life rooted more deeply in your truth and your service. You know if you are meant to be here with us. Your soul remembers…

By signing up for the retreat, I affirm that I am a YES to the following sister agreements:

I know that in circle, we are all one. I know that it is safe to show up in all of my authentic self and be seen, supported, loved, and accepted by my sisters. I will hold a safe space for my sisters to also show up in all of the fullness of their truth and be seen, supported, loved, and accepted. "What we don't need in the midst of struggle is shame for being human" ~ Brene Brown

I understand that in this weekend there is an invitation to safely explore the shadows within my emotions and experiences with the intention to alchemize fears, limitations, insecurities, and shame... into authentic alignment with my truth. I know that this is a sacred space of deep energetic transmission and with this I know there is a possibility for triggering intense emotions, memories, and experiences. If I am feeling triggered, I know that it is safe to consciously bring it to Jessica and to the circle space, and I will remain in responsibility for my own well-being, mental health, and self-care. "There is no light without shadow, and no psychic wholeness without imperfection" ~ Carl Jung

I know that this retreat is a deep immersion in to the alchemy of myself. I will do my best to be open-hearted, vulnerable when it feels safe, and the amount of depth I experience is my own sovereign choice at all times. "Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light" ~ Brene Brown

Your sacred space holder

She weaves a web of energy medicine, sacred ritual, kundalini reiki, shadow alchemy, intuitive mentorship, & spiritual coaching to offer a mirror of reflection and re-connect you to the magic in your bones.

if only we are brave enough to let it be seen.
