Wild Soul Summer Solstice

Exploring Shadow & Light

women’s retreat

16-18 June 2023


About the retreat

The Summer Solstice is a time of maximum light and therefore conducive to exploring our shadows and bringing them into the light. This is a co-creation for a safe space to be, to learn, and to dive deep into ourselves. Join us as we will be embracing the shadow and allow our own unique light to shine. We’ll encourage ourselves to listen to our own bodies, observe our own minds, and emotions, and access a deeper understanding of the hearts and spirits that animate our being. An invitation to co-create a transformative experience through contemplating, moving with stillness, dissolving, and re-aligning (embodiment).

  • yearn for the simplicity of life that allows you to feel the excitement?
  • have the desire to explore the shadow side of you and the duality of life?

moving stillness flow

Awaken the inner dancer and discover your natural flow. We will explore our dance using the DANCEmandala Elemental map to open space for both our shadow and light through somatic awareness, emotive movement, playfulness, and reflective expression. No experience in dance is required. Bring yourself exactly as you are into this re-wilding process and let your body move into joy and freedom. To read more about DANCEmandala CLICK HERE

Movement and stillness flow towards balance and DANCEmandala awakens the authentic self and calls forth our compassionate wild women to the light. We’ll make space for the play of shadows may they be pain, suffering, or joy, we’ll move with them all in the dance until we’re fully awake to the wilderness of our own souls. I’m excited to co-create this retreat for you. Come and join us for a weekend of discovery, and connection to the wild Soul within!




Yoga for Embodiment and Trauma

The focus in this practice shifts from the external “need to get it right” to using poses/shapes of yoga to explore our inner world (introperception) how we move in space (proprioception) and the space around us (extraperception). Invitational language in addition to exploring choice making can have a profound and healing effect on our nervous system as we allow our body complex to experience felt sensation and toleration of it. We begin to inhabit our body and gradually understand the habits and blocks that stop us from fully living our life. To read more about Soraya Yoga CLICK HERE

Yoga offers me the support, structure, and foundation to reveal myself and show vulnerability without my armoring and masks. We welcome you to join us in this 3 day-retreat of discovery, creativity, understanding, de-conditioning, and healing. I’m happy to answer any questions you may have.
