Oct 2020, Awaken the Elements
- Ceremony with the Elements, Kundalini Activation, Powerful Fire Release, Dance & Celebration, Hiking through Nature.
- Each retreat we incorporate powerful healing, meditation and journey work with each of the elements. We sit with the water, adventure with air, ground with earth and release with fire. Each Awaken the Elements retreat weekend incorporates similarities but also allows for Spirit to flow through us in order to adjust the program depending on the energy and group of women.
- Connecting to each element is the biggest highlight for the weekend. The program will include the right balance of stillness, movement and adventure. The ceremony work with the elements is sacred and comes from sacred teachings. It is shared only with our retreat groups who attend and not described prior to retreat. You will have to experience it for yourself.
- Another profound journey we include is a hike to Spirit Rock. This is the most sacred site of our venue and is a moderate yet challenging (for some) hike. You will have an opportunity to reflect in silence on the hike and at the top of the rock plus take in some spectacular Fall views.

About This Event
This is a Nature Retreat for women who are seeking inspiration, self-development and adventure.
When you give yourself permission to experience your true potential you face an awakening that will change the course of your life. Women who have participated in Awaken the Elements have left in alignment with their truth, have discovered their soul's purpose and have broken free from past traumas as well as released limiting beliefs or patterns. They have moved on to create amazing relationships in their lives, started new projects, businesses or careers, and fully embodying their divine connection to spirit, the elements, nature and to self. Not to mention, they fully stepped into their divine Goddess energy claiming back their power and truth!
Our 3 day weekend retreat is nestled on sacred land 40 mins North of Huntsville, ON. The land is nourished in ceremony, prayer, and sacred teachings. We integrate the energy and elements of the land in this fully immersive retreat program. You will leave feeling inspired, wrapped in love, refreshed, nurtured and equipped with many tools to support your journey forward. By connecting to the elements you are tapping into the Universal Life Force available to us at all times.
Be ready to experience with all your senses in a whole new way. It's time to heal and find your powerful voice - let this be the way through and into that power.
