You’re invited to Join Dr. A. in her first in-person event since 2020!

Gather with women who share your wild and soulful spirit and retreat from the world.


Share in an unforgettable weekend of sanctuary, community, mythology, story,

connection, support, ritual, ceremony, and personal growth.


Be seen, heard, and appreciated, and feel respected and loved.

Finally together, for a time out of time, we’ll claim Sanctuary from the world,

and find renewal in the ancient sacred energies of women spending soul-time in community.

Receive acknowledgment, respect, and appreciation; be seen, heard, and loved for who you are now.


Over this weekend we’ll  embody our Regency, by bearing witness for one another as we reclaim the archetypal feminine through myths, great tales, and creativity with: 

Storytelling     Ceremony     Ritual

Guided Meditation     Journaling     Weaving

           Breathwork     Gentle Movement 


Beginning with the welcome event on Friday afternoon, this weekend will be a deeply soulful connection of women releasing our thorniest challenges, recreating personal sovereignty, choosing belonging, and unconditionally supporting one another.


Three expert facilitators will lead you from the everyday world across a threshold into the sacred otherworld to dissolve barriers, discover a new way forward, transform your self-image and rejoice in community. Finally, we will return from the other world to celebrate with renewed purpose, meaning and belonging.
