I am so freaking excited to announce that I have co-created a retreat with my soul sister and colleague, Tina Provenzano called Rock All Your Relationships in Sedona, AZ October 24th-28th. Check out our retreat website! Tina and I are inviting 15 women who are ready to love and be loved fiercely, fearlessly and freely in all their relationships. This is a transformative spiritual retreat that will open your eyes, expand your heart and leave your soul soaring while you soak up the sacred energies of the Red Rocks! If you know a woman who might be interested in this incredible opportunity, please share this with them.
During this retreat, you will receive guided meditations, individual sessions, massages, downtime, healthy delicious meals, cozy accommodations and more...much more. While this retreat is focused on creating and/or strengthening all your relationships, I believe the most important aspect of it is the gathering of women and creating a sacred sisters circle. Those of you who know me, know that I am a passionate relationship coach who enjoys bringing groups together to heal, learn, grow and have lots of laughs and fun.
However, I will be honest with you…I was a little bit disappointed when spirit told me this would be a retreat for only women. I already gather and teach women through my Being Open to Love coaching program and have led weekend women retreats in the past. I was hoping that this time I would lead a co-ed retreat because…well, why not. So, I did what I normally do, I gave myself the opportunity to process my feelings and be with spirit’s guidance.
The truth is spiritual teachers, coaches and healers are always teaching what they most need to learn. I have worked through a lot of my sisterhood wound, learned to be in my badass feminine and taught other women to do the same. Now, I am going to take it to the next phase. I will be teaching at an emotionally deeper level, sharing new tools, celebrating the divine feminine and leading this retreat with another talented, beautiful and badass woman.
Why? Because that dang old sisterhood wound still runs rampant in our world, in our communities, in our families, within our friendships and most importantly within YOU. The sisterhood wound is that longing to be seen, liked and appreciated by other women. It comes from a deep place within us that feels less than or not good enough and straight up just feeling disempowered as a woman. The sisterhood wound exists because we were hurt by another woman whether she was our mother, sister, aunt, teacher, colleague or friend. And within this hurt is a belief that creates competition, comparison, jealousy and at its extreme… displays itself as hurtful reactions.
I have been there. I have a boatload of experiences to share of feeling left out of the “clique or inner circle” of women whom I believed at the time were better than me or who deserved to belong and I didn’t. It created a spell within me that kept me behaving in such a way that kept me OUT of the circle. Not because someone was telling me to stay out because they didn’t like me or that I wasn’t worthy. I was keeping myself out of the sister circle for fear of getting hurt, rejected and abandoned.
How can you tell if you are experiencing life through a sisterhood wound? Maybe you can relate to one or many of these:
Tina and I have both experienced and witnessed how being a part of a sacred sister circle is incredibly healing to our past wounds that have impacted our relationships with others and ourselves. We have experienced and seen how being part of a like-minded group of women and bravely trusting our vulnerability to be seen, helps us to see ourselves not only through our own eyes but through the eyes of another like us. The circle returns home to you. Being in a sacred circle of women helps you to love yourself more. Loving yourself more deepens your relationships to others.
Deep authentic bonds with women have created some of my most profound spiritual experiences because it has created trust and more compassion within myself that has spilled out into the world and into my relationships with other women. There was once a time when the divine feminine was honored not just by men but by WOMEN!!! Dearest sister it is up to us… to you. We are the ones to break the spell that keeps us disconnected from our sisters, our feminine, our womanhood and from ourselves. It's time…OUR TIME…to destroy the old paradigm and birth a new one together of healing, growth, connection, support and celebration. Sisterhood is a practice and a journey... and it's one that the world needs right now. If we are to BE in our Feminine Power, we must BE ourselves and open our hearts to each other!
Among the many things offered during the Rock All Your Relationships Retreat, we will:
If you feel the call to heal your sisterhood wound and create a deeper connection to other women and most importantly to the woman that exists within YOU, then I Invite you to participate in this retreat.
It’s never too late to create the relationships of your dreams!
