Thank you so much for providing such a memorable weekend in Yosemite. It was life changing! ~Yolanda

The retreat freed me up to try new things-to go beyond what I thought I could do...The retreat also taught me that I’m not alone. Others cope with similar challenges, have similar fears...In general, the most impressive thing about the retreat was that a special atmosphere was created where the women of all different ages and backgrounds bonded on a very deep level. I think we truly felt a sisterhood.  ~Kate

Others may never understand that special bond that grows between us and the strength we give each other. Though we may go our separate ways on our journeys, we will always have with us the faith, hope, and love that was shared between us this one special weekend.  ~Bonnie

Yosemite is my new healing place!  ~Charlotte

Connect with Us

The Sacred Awakening Retreat is a life-changing, in-person spiritual learning experience where individuals transform to a new level of consciousness leading to rebirth. As in the Hero/Shero Journey, a call to spiritual action and collective healing awakens us from being imprisoned by our times of difficulty and trauma. Within us exists the power to be instruments for healing. We each have incredible innate capabilities as we are constructive co-creators with the universe. By attuning to ourselves, we discover the internal restoration necessary to broaden our capacity for compassion, joy and connection. Through the Sacred Activism Community, we support the process of radical healing embracing the elements of nature while fostering relationships that allow our highest gifts and brightest light to emerge.
