About us

In this three-day intensive, Heather will lead you on a journey into the heart of your divine feminine intuition, self-love/self-care & the ways of the sacred sister circle. With the magical mountains and ocean surrounding us, we will tap our priestess presence to live more fulfilling lives of sacred purpose, action and connection.

JOIN US to dance, meditate & pray, to dive deeply into our soul's mission, to be with other sisters & learn the ways of the priestess warrior, and to learn how to make rituals, routines, ceremonies & altars to further your practice.

Isn’t it time to step up and claim your truth?

What is it you came here to be? And, what do you need to let go of to BE that?
