About This Event

We invite you to join in the creation of sacred space that honours the Feminine.
As women we will come together to honour our body temples and the wisdom they hold, finding within our true power and beauty.

Bettina Rothe shares:
"It has been a dream of mine to create a residential offering for women, so that we can remain in a sacred, transformative container over a few days without having to go home, needing to cook, take care of others etc.

I believe that women thrive in community where their voices and stories are heard.
I know that the feminine energy is rising, that the world is waking up and that leadership is changing.

I picked one of my favourite places in the world, Stowel Lake Farm on Salt Spring Island, BC to hold this retreat. Stowel Lake Farm is a retreat centre, an organic farm and an amazing community of families living together - and it’s run by women! ((contact info blocked))

We are inviting women to gather in circle to connect with the wisdom of their bodies and hearts, to ignite their voice and to heal some of the wounds of disconnection.

Through the transformative practice of 5Rhythms, we will bring kindness and compassion into the cracks and wounds of our humanness. 5Rhythms dance is a path of integration, of healing the split between spirit and body – a path of dancing ourselves back into wholeness. Each Rhythm offers us tangible tools to bring body, heart, mind, soul and spirit into alignment.

Through storytelling and witnessing, we will honour the stories we each hold that have created separation, doubt and our own version of the “beast within”.

Embodied voice work will guide us in reshaping our voice to find its most natural, fluid and powerful form, so that we can speak our truth and share our message with clarity and strength.

True to the spirit of the SHE work I have asked other women to join me in the holding of the circle and sharing of their offerings.

I have teamed up with Sharon Abbondanza, expert yoga teacher ((contact info blocked)) and Laura Ahava who will offer Lomi Lomi Body work, Breath work and ritual.

Land and community based teachings will be shared by the women of Stowel Lake Farm.

Together we will step through the gateway to becoming the embodied, feminine, intuitive, powerful beings we are meant to be."

No previous experience is required.
Everyone is welcome who identifies as a SHE.

Testimonial:
"The embodied feminine power practices we learned at the SHE workshop fed my soul in a way I didn't even realize I had been craving. I made friends with the place where my power lives, and I experienced myself showing up to life from that place. I cried, I roared, I laughed, I made new friends. I felt true safety with other women. 

Together, as women of all ages and backgrounds, we danced, and we sang, and we witnessed each other as sisters, with hearts full of love and compassion.
There is nothing this world needs more."

- Danielle Rondeau, lawyer, author and life coach 

"I love to empower women and bring the fierce feminine back into leadership." - Bettina Rothe
