Welcome Sacred Women
I have been calling together and hosting women's weekends with my circle of wise women friends for over ten years now...
At first they arose out of our collective need for re-connection and rest from our energetically demanding young families... later manifesting from our heart's realization that this space together was sacred... magic. Gatherings shape-shifted with the women present. Sometimes a bustling 15 women gathering resulted in lively evenings of music making and raucous laughter, while others were smaller and filled the heart in ways only quiet intimacy can. All gathering were a celebration of food.... the literal food we joyfully and thoughtfully prepared for one another, and the metaphorical food... our stories... our beliefs... that we feed our hearts and minds.
Transformation was guaranteed... like the breath of life itself being breathed into every cell over the course of our time together, resulting in healing, realignment, and reignited self determination.
Over the years these gatherings have filled me with inspiration and gratitude in ways I cannot fully articulate. But mostly I feel grateful for the circles themselves... to know sacred community... to be a part of sacred community...
From this overflowing gratitude within me I open the circle... to YOU...

I am grateful to have the opportunity to share my family cabin and land for our gathering. We are located on Portage Drive, a few kilometers past Pass Lake, Ontario, right on the shore of Lake Superior.
Our space offers gorgeous lake views, swimming, wood sauna, forest trails, full kitchen, cozy shared accommodations, and lakeside fires.
Shared collaborative Meals
Food is one of the favourite parts of our gatherings, because we all contribute to and in turn receive the thoughtful meals prepared by one another throughout the weekend.
Meals will be vegetarian, healthy and delicious!

I recently received an email from a woman reaching out to me as a community builder, describing her longing for intentional community and a conscious circle of women to connect to.
Of course, I empathized with her longing, as it is mine own as well. Truly, that longing in my own heart is the very inspiration for every circle I call, for every class I lead, for every song I sing. It is in the calling together of conscious community that my heart finds peace along side yours.
I believe that in community we reflect to one another that which enables our becoming. I believe in your wisdom and the keys which it may hold for us all. I believe that in community we unfold over and over again.
Walking beside you,
