Story 2Posted on December 16, 2016 by Joanna
“It’s been 9 months since the She Rises Retreat and I am still basking in the restorative and healing effects of the power of the feminine. Being in the presence of some amazing women who all shared the same vision, enthusiasm and openness to also explore, was nothing less than transformative. The gentle flow of the weekend, and the beautiful location, were just what I needed to escape the busy ‘working-mother’ pace I was used to.
Joanna so carefully and thoughtfully weaved a myriad of activities, rituals and ceremonies that drew me in, mesmerized me and challenged me to tap into parts of myself that had been left dusty, dormant and undiscovered. I left the retreat with more aliveness, more self-awareness and a greater sense of motivation that is still being fueled by these wonderful women! Joanna has such a gift for showing us how to listen to the voice within, how to see with a new perspective, and most importantly she encourages us to accept and love ourselves for who we are — just as we are. I feel so blessed to be a part of this journey of waking women.”
