Medicine Women Rising

Welcome Home to your Wild Sacred Self.

February 2022. Costa Rica.

We are all medicine women,

guiding each other home to our sacred selves,

bringing our medicine to the world, 

holding our sisters in ceremony

and rising together in our power. 

We are the medicine.   



Have you been feeling called to step fully into your power and offer your medicine to others in circles and retreats?  

The world is waking up to the power of the feminine and we need women to join together in circles once again to heal the collective and bring a new earth to life.  The wild calling you have been hearing from within your heart and womb has been awakening you to your power, bringing your sacred sisters closer, activating your purpose, and helping you remember why you came here.

You are a medicine woman.  You have done the courageous inner work of uncovering your gifts and you’ve been a leader to many who have crossed your path.  You are ready to take the next step of leading your own medicine circles and retreats and uniting the feminine on earth once again.

If you’ve been feeling called to unite and empower groups of women to honour their sacred wild selves and awaken their magic, let this be your invitation…..




The Medicine Woman Rising Retreat is a 7 day immersive experience designed to empower you with the wisdom and the medicine for bringing women together in ceremony and retreats to help them awaken their wildness and their wisdom within.  For one week we will nestle ourselves in the majestic mountains of Rio Chirripo Lodge in Costa Rica and go into the depths of our desires, our dreams, and our magic.  We will shake free from the outdated programs and rise up in our sacredness together as sisters.  Our time together will leave you feeling ready and equipped with the wisdom and tools to be confident to lead your own retreats and circles for women in your communities and ready to step fully into your power as a medicine woman rising.

The Mountains are calling….
