"Each of the facilitators brought a different and compelling piece to the weekend, deepening and broadening the overall experience. The synergy of the facilitators on the second day was particularly beautiful … the safe, sacred container for us to grow and shift and deepen with joy! I loved the experience!"

~ Ariana Newcomer - The Voice Coach’s Voice Coach

“A powerful weekend; great variety of ways to explore body, heart, mind, all opened us to the shadow and her gifts ultimately revealed. The depth of truth revealed showed me things to explore more deeply. A safe container was made by the facilitators and the women attending that allowed truth to bubble forth from each of our depths. We saw out commonality and that we were not alone and had allies.”

~ Jen Devine, Theologian, educator & pleasure activist
