You have been called to remember
Re-member retreats are seasonal gatherings for women designed to ignite the fire of our intuition, ground us into our feminine strengths and to create space to explore the old ways of being for healing, growing and guiding the world into reciprocity with nature.
The heart of our Fall retreat is exploring the ties to our ancestry and harvesting the mastery that lies within our roots.
A sacred space
Centerville, Utah (private address will be shared upon confirmation of attendance)
The location is magical with easy access from the city and it is backed right up to a mountain with beautiful flowing waters, herbal gardens and has been used primarily for sacred work. It is the perfect setting and provides the best stage for transformation and rejuvenation.
Your Grandmothers would be Proud
It is vital for women to take time to explore the roots of their lineage and offer space in our lives for their legacy to live on through us.
We know the power of the creative expression that is cultivated from working with plant medicines.
Our desire is to provide a container for exploring the sensual and creative nature of women. All that makes life on this earth possible.
Beyond a female-only environment, Re-member immersion workshops are designed to ignite the passion, power, and pleasure that is our innate and natural way of being! You grandmothers would be proud~
This three-day immersion will be like nothing you have experienced before.
You will come away from the weekend with a deeper understanding of yourself.
The workshops within the immersion are designed to take us through the cycles of nature, walking the medicine wheel of our womb.
We will learn practices that support bridging ceremonies into our everyday life: breathwork, sound healing, nourishing bio-dynamic food, dance, and water rituals.
These practices are the art of the feminine. These tools help us to be more whole for ourselves, our families, and our community.
What is provided?
~ All meals are homemade and ORGANIC (except the first night where we ask you to bring a shared dish)
~ Wild harvested spring water
~ A playlist for you to continue to integrate your time spent healing
~ Herbal remedies to be worked with throughout the weekend
~ Sleeping area is shared you will need to bring your own blankets and mats (outdoor sleeping by the sound of the running creek is optional)
~ We will provide a treasure chest of flowy clothing, music, and movement items for our journey
~ Art station where you can paint what inspires you (we are excited to build a collaborative mandala)

The gift of Intimacy~
This immersion is only open to 13 souls who feel called at this time to join. We find that a small container provides the opportunity for women to be vulnerable and open. We are excited to provide this type of close knit experience for those wanting to attend. By keeping the group compact we naturally have more space for our hearts to truly open.
The Great Teacher
Plant Medicine Huachuma
One of the most important master plants is the San Pedro cactus. Wachuma is a key or bridge that can help a person to be more harmonious. The word "Wachuma" in the ancient language of the Quechua Indians literally means headless, that is, to remove rational thinking, remove the ego. It is divided into Waqcha - "in the absence" and Uma - "head". In the Andes, the plant-teacher Wachuma is said to heal bodily diseases and mental illnesses; which teaches and harmonizes a person.
The drink in the San Pedro ceremony is obtained from a cactus. Sometimes the San Pedro ceremony is compared to a seven-year meditation in Tibet. Indeed, Wachuma is one of the ways of knowing oneself through sincerity, unconditional love for oneself, through acceptance and understanding of oneself and the world that you create.
This ceremony often works with the energy of forgiveness. As Democritus once said: "After all, making mistakes is inevitable, but it is not easy to earn forgiveness from people" and it is even more difficult to accept and forgive yourself for the perfect mistakes.
Used to heal, cleanse, heal the heart, body and mind
San Pedro helps, opens, and shows at what point there was a failure or an injury; it helps to forgive, accept yourself and the people around you. There are no hallucinations or strong unpleasant bodily sensations in the ceremony. San Pedro is always an experience of love, sincerity, and joy. In the ceremony, work is done in the heart, where we feel, the temple of emotions.
Working with Musical Medicine
Music and movement provide opportunities to express and create what we feel. Music is a gift, a gift to be honored in its fullest, and with integrity. Our vision is to co-create and choreograph an experience that takes you on a journey within and with the source that guides the music and our experience with it.
Utilizing music for influence, activating our inner being, and all the other elements come into play. With life as ceremony we are inspired to move forward through teaching, learning, and excitement for life.
We are providing nurturing approaches to creating and healing through music and movement medicine, establishing healthy foundations for maintaining harmony in life.
