4 days, 3 nights nestled in the countryside
Ready for sisterhood and connection? Long gone are the days where the women of the tribe retreat to the red tent to bleed together and share their stories. Yet most of us are craving this connection to the divine feminine and forgotten wisdom more now than ever before. Led by senior facilitators Mel Kitchen and Tianjin Lawless-Jennings; this weekend will reconnect you with your body, help you understand your cycles and every rite of passage that comes with womanhood. You will create rituals and practices to rebalance and remember how to use your femininty as your superpower.
Who’s it for?
This weekend is for women of all ages at any part of the divine feminine journey. Women who are bleeding and want to better understand the phases of each cycle and how to use the gifts of the cycles as personal power. And for women who have crossed into eldership that comes after the last bleed. We’ll teach you how to stay divinely connected to your rhythms, the moon, the earth and the goddess in each chapter of womanhood. This weekend is for women who want to reclaim their power and untangle the stories, the stigma and come home to the wisdom of their wombs.

The Waldara grounds have been lovingly designed to capture the feeling of serenity and wonderment that comes from being surrounded by mother nature.
