the stages of
THE HEROINES JOURNEY
You have gone through this journey many times.
You will go through it again, many times in your life.
As will your loved ones.
We experience these stages every time we go through a crisis, a change,
begin something new, advance our character or our mastery.
Having in-depth understanding of the 11 stages
deepens insight, self-trust,
and our capacity in courageously walking forward.
The woman experiences these stages in each transformation, each initiation, and in her journey to wholeness and completeness in herself.
Join us for an 8-day immersion through The Heroines Journey
June 5 - 12, 2019
A Rite of Passage into the fullness and wholeness of you as a woman,
through the eleven stages of initiation, transformation and healing.
Including Self Awareness & Mindfulness practices, Kundalini Yoga, Meditation,
Solo time on the land, 2 days of Silence, Visioning,
Individual and Collective ceremony and deep process work.
"Be brave to face each step of the journey.
You will get to the golden pot of illumination."
~ Past participant, 2016
Taking this time to reflect and deeply heal within yourself
has profound effects on family across generations,
and lifts you in your passion, purpose, and capacity.

Hawai'i island, often called 'the big island' is the largest in the Hawaiian chain, with the most varied landscape. The island itself is transforming, with the newest land forming in the past two months from lava flow.
We will be based five miles above the Kilauea and Halema'uma'u craters on the old initiation grounds of Mauna Loa, utop old lava tubes.
The Mountain at our back is Mauna Kea, the tallest on earth, arising from the ocean floor, and covering half the island in width. Standing, often snow-capped, at almost 14,000 feet above sea level.
The island is made up of many aspects. Wet rainforest, black sand beaches, a green sand beach (from olivine crystal raining down in times of lava flow), to light, bright sand and tropical bays.
While this immersion is an inward one, we relate to the landscape we sit within. As our host, the land is clear in its mana (presence, power, voice, reflection).
