This is a very profound and deeply spiritual place. It connects us with nature….more correctly we feel nature….our true state.Being in this authentic state is incredibly healing.

Anki created a haven for us to learn and share
The river was purifying and rejuvenating. Deep remembering has developed from the processes, which I have been able to continue since the gathering and apply in other relationships with people, spirit and mother.
During the earth lodge, Hala and her firewomen lead us through transformations of the feminine and shared blessings from the ancient ones and ancestors, which I’ve been carrying since.
Anki and Sara are very powerful women who see and foster the power in those around them, with a clear intention to rise together. Our small group of mighty women share intersecting and complementary medicines. They are inspiring, it is an honour to connect with and learn from each remarkable, courageous and sparkly soul. I’m eagerly awaiting our second gathering, and looking very forward to learning, working and rising together again soon.
I can feel we are going to be sisters for life
The women's wisdom revealed through the workshops has given me a deeper understanding of my womb energy, both from a personal as well as societal/historical perspective, as well as rituals to reactivate and empower this divine space within me. Also the heart opening between the other women in the group has been incredible, already I can feel we are going to be sisters for life. And the earth sweat lodge blew all of our minds and souls! Couldn't recommend this program more for fellow earth and spirit loving sisters!
Reconnecting and remembering the cycles
A shedding of the old with clearings unfolding all on the land that we sat upon. It felt so sacred and supportive of the journeys the 15 sisters were going through. Reconnecting and remembering the cycles and phases of the moon, blood cycle and the woman hood cycle was like a re-initation for myself.
The language of self love rang true throughout the 3 days. Celebrating life, the light and dark as a collective sisterhood was something I have never been able to experience in such depth before this weekend. Sharing in activities, teachings and being guided by Hala ( and her fire sisters) in a earth lodge ceremony, was profound and spoke to my soul. My ever lasting gratitude for Anki, Sar and the 13 sisters I gathered with for such a sacred and beautiful weekend! The light is shining bright and I cannot wait to see how the rest of the journey unfolds.
I wish all women had a chance to experience this journey
A circle of women, gorgeous souls all there to support each other in the journey of connection, to ourselves, each other and to Mother Earth.
Anki as a facilitator is simply divine; she is soft and strong, playful and wise, holding space and leading deep inquiry, musical and mystical, nurturing and warm-hearted.
I am so grateful for Anki’s beautiful work, her attention to detail and the feeling of genuine care that she created. I wish all women had a chance to experience this journey, it really is life changing.
