Are you a highly accomplished woman looking to step into the next chapter of your life from a deeply integrated place? One that truly reflects your authentic code and centers YOU—rather than others—in the narrative of your life?
This Water Womyn Retreat is for you!
Join a small, highly-curated, community of likeminded women in a beautiful, nourishing setting, tap into the wisdom and healing powers of water, and rediscover YOU.
During this transformative retreat, I’ll be sharing tools, metaphors, and lessons gained though 30 years of deep relationship with water to help you awaken to your deeper callings—the things that matter most to you. Watery immersion and rejuvenation, meditation, yoga, journaling, ritual, and discussion topics will invite you to explore your innate longings and inherent dualities, call in balance and power, and show up in full integrity in your relationships, work, and home life.
You will be gifted time and space for self-reflection, reconnection, and healing, while benefitting from the opportunity to grow and learn in community. Pre-retreat introductory material and online introductions will encourage you to begin opening to the language of water and fostering connection with other amazing women.

Flights: When booking flights, you’ll want to fly into Liberia International Airport (LIR). From Liberia, we have two options for transport to the resort: booking a puddle jumper flight or a shuttle. We highly recommend you plan to land in Liberia prior to 2:30 PM on the first day of retreat and depart after 2:30 PM on the last day of retreat.
Shuttle: Once we receive your flight information, we’ll help coordinate transportation from the airport to the resort. When possible, we’ll pair you with other guests arriving/departing at similar times to keep your cost down and make the 2 ½ hour trip more fun. Anticipated cost is $150 for one to four people, and $40 for each additional person, plus tax.
