Rise // A Wild Spirit Retreat
I am super excited to announce that coming this April in Northern California, myself and my girl Vyana are hosting our first-ever retreat as Wild Spirit Retreats.

Rise // A Wild Spirit Retreat

April 3-6, 2015 – The Sequoia Retreat Center – California


Rise is an escape from the hustle

a plunge into the nourishment of presence

to walk into our shadows

hand in hand

supported by our sisters

to explore the spirit through yoga, cooking, writing, vision boarding, hiking, bodywork and more

a place to transform fear into confidence

hatred to forgiveness

jealousy to understanding

to celebrate movement and nourishment

a gathering to honor the power of being a woman

With a focus on organic, sustainable living, Wild Spirit Retreats blends movement, creative expression, communication, and skill building into fun and relaxing gatherings. Each year we host a minimum of 2 gatherings – 1 US and 1 international.
