Wild Women Awakening: A Women's Spring Retreat for Renewal and Empowerment

Christy Ceraso and Kelley Linn

 Are you ready to reclaim Freedom, Creativity and Joy in your life?  Do you feel like there is something deeper that you are yearning to tap into?  Are you longing to connect with the ancient wisdom of your body, the mother Earth, and your sisters on the path?

Join us for a transformational journey deep into your molten core to discover, activate, and celebrate your Wild Feminine Wisdom and Creative Inspiration!  

Your facilitators, holding a sacred container of unconditional love, offer ways to awaken the innate, intuitive awareness of your being by means of Yoga, Breathwork, Guided Meditation, Dance, Nature Immersion, Elemental Explorations, Sensual Self-Care, Reflective and Creative Writing, Spontaneous Art, and Vision Questing!  

We will kindle the sacred fires of our inner light and infinite love, ignited by the following themes:  

Honoring the Body   *   Expressing Creative Energy  

Sacred Space & Ceremony   *   Deepening Connections

Reclaim your Wild Self in the raw, untamed, natural beauty of the Puna coastline.  Hawaii is home to many rare native trees, birds and animals, such as the playful Hawai’i spinner dolphins and the graceful sea turtles.  Experience your innate sensuality while sunbathing and swimming in the pristine ocean at the clothing-optional Black Sand Beach.  Enjoy sunrise and moonrise meditations at the cliff overlooking the blue Pacific Ocean, just a short walk from your room.

The Big Island of Hawai’i is home to the Goddess Pele, who is actively worshiped as a Wild Elemental Force of Power, Creativity, and Transformation.  Pele has been continuously erupting in Puna for over 30 years, and is literally birthing the a’ina - the land that nourishes us.  Many people who come to Hawaii are affected deeply by the ancient magic and transformational power of this island paradise.  Join us in tapping into the deep pulsation of this dynamic expression of the Goddess.

Three delicious, gourmet meals are prepared for you each day.  Vegetarian, vegan, omnivorous, and gluten free options are available.
