September 21st-23rd, 2018 in Hot Springs, NC
Retreat into three days of sacred ceremony, energy medicine, inner alchemy, women's circle, and the magic of sisterhood.
As the wheel turns from Summer to Fall, let us gather in sacred circle & tune in to the wisdom that this season has to offer by creating the space to...
Re-Source & Re-Fortify...
Re-Member our wholeness...
Re-Align with our natural rhythms...
Re-Veal the deepest medicine and alchemy within...
In this time of the Autumn Equinox, we feel the shifts that begin drawing us back toward inner reflection.
We innately feel the need to take a pause & shed all that is no longer necessary to carry... all that is no longer nourishing our lives. This time offers the invitation to tune in to what energetically wants to be harvested, composted, tended to, and preserved... getting really clear on what we desire to carry with us in to the sacred cave of winter to shore-up for lasting nourishment throughout the long dark nights.
Step in to the timelessness of sacred circle with us, sister. Make space for the next cycle to flow with ease.
Let us join together to Remember our Wholeness, Radiance, Brilliance, and Divinity. In this Revelational container of Ceremony & Sisterhood, may we Easefully Flow toward Re-Alignment. May we walk away feeling Celebrated, Abundantly Resourced, Light, & Supported by the Infinite.
In this circle we know it is safe to take off all masks and be fully authentic & seen.
In this circle we journey within and spiral with all aspects of the sacred feminine.
In this circle we reconnect with our deepest selves, our true nature, our sisters, our magic.
In this circle we gather in wild woman wisdom, scrying in the deeply alchemical mirror of sisterhood.
Our time together
We step in to our sacred circle on Friday afternoon at 2:00p.m., the eve of the Autumn Equinox & We will re-emerge from our circle on the eve of the Full Moon in Aries, Sunday at 3:00p.m.
In our weekend-long women's circle, we will steep ourselves in sacred ceremony while receiving the medicine of simply being fully present to ourselves, our breath, one another, and our experiences as they unfold.
Full Moon Cacao Ceremony
Water Blessing & Purification
Spiraling ~ A Guided Practice
Journey with Inner Alchemy
Autumn Equinox Celebration
Sacred Fire Communion
Harvest Gratitude Feast
Wild Woman Archetypal Play
Experiential Energy Medicine
Deepening in Sisterhood Connections
Expanding our Relationship with Self-Healing
Friday, our journey begins as we step across the threshold into our sacred immersion. We will root in to the heart of these Grandmother mountains, presence into our own sacred heart, and deepen in sister connection. Tuning in to the natural rhythms of our earth on this Autumn Equinox eve, we will reflect and align with our inner wisdom. After an evening meal, Grandfather Fire awaits us under the waxing near-full moon & starry sky. Kundalini Reiki and a goodnight meditation will complete our first day together.
Remembering Wholeness... Saturday we will dive deeper into our inner world, unveiling layers of self, truth, activation, expansion, and remembrance. The emotional, mental, physical, and energetic bodies will all receive tending and energy medicine. Through connection with the Earth, our breath, ritual, divine communion, and sound we will journey with potent inner alchemy. Our day will also include time with the sacred land and self-reflection, drumming around our evening fire, and three meals together.
Sunday's Full Moon eve is an opportunity to step forward as embodied wholeness, aligned truth, and pure light... anchoring this Re-Sourcing and Re-Fortification deep into our bones. With sacred spiraling, easeful organic movement, cacao ceremony, and a water blessing & purification; we will clear our body temple & energetics, and integrate the wisdom of our weekend. Our final day together includes two nourishing meals.
As you feel into the intentions and energy of our weekend, please keep an open heart to the possibility of change! We will shift and flow as the energetics reveal themselves in the weeks leading up to our weekend, and as the alchemy weaves together when each sister anchors in her YES.
All experiences are optional.
In order to keep an intimate alchemical container for us to dive deep with one another, we will welcome up to 15 sisters.

The deepest alchemy occurs when we allow ourselves to receive the medicine of our circle as it reveals itself, shifting moment to moment. In order to do this, we must surrender the mind's expectation & idea of what it all should look like. So sister, only join us if you feel the call. I trust that you know if you are a SOUL YES to circle with us... you remember...
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 this is an inclusive space where we are all holding the energy of reverence for one another and the circle. No judgements, bypassing, expectation, or attachments. 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.
I know that this retreat is an immersion in to the alchemy of myself and the amount of depth I experience is my own sovereign choice at all times. I understand that in this weekend there is an invitation to safely explore vulnerability, shadows, and open-heartedness 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.
