Annual Women’s Healing Retreat ~ 2-Day, 1 Night
August 13th & 14th, 2022
Our worlds are unsteady.
So much is happening outside of our control…
it is destabilizing; fracturing; triggering wounds and fears and hopelessness.
Pain, heartbreak, and trauma can leave us feeling lost in the darkness; it can feel as if we have parts of ourselves cut off and left in those realms, so that we travel our Path feeling lesser; behaving lesser; sensing pieces missing from a time of shattering – sometimes at our own hand.
We must turn towards the only place we have power, if we have any hope to recover ourselves and have capacity to offer our gifts to the world… To dig deep and find our courage; to step into our bravery and be willing to really look at what archetypes are working with us… and against us.
We find ourselves at the Crossroads.
But we are not alone here.
In this dark and lost space, we can call upon the Grace & Guidance of the Goddess of Light & Shadows.
There has never been a better time to ask Her to walk alongside us as we meet at the Crossroads and take true stock of where we are; where we have been; and where we shall choose to walk forward.
We call upon Hecate.
Hecate. The Goddess of the Three Ways…
Soul Guide to those who Travel the Thresholds
Hecate. Ancient Goddess of Protection & Chaos…
She who is the Blade, born of Starlight & Destruction
Hecate. Queen of the Witches…
Wise One of Magic & Repossession of One’s Own Power
Hecate’s wisdom teaches us to not fear the Dark, but to descend back into the Otherworld to find these lost parts of ourselves – to repossess our power and wholeness, so that we can accept all of ourselves, become accountable to ourselves, and refuse to cut parts of our Soul off to fit into someone else’s glass slippers, rather than face the search for real Belonging and possible rejection that accompanies it.
Our experiences as Women – so varied and unique, yet also universal – create a space where we are all in a stage of recovery… recovering our power through recovering our healing.
Recovering our wisdom of discernment… Recovering our capacity to accept responsibility for what is truly ours and laying down that which is not. Recovering our self-accountability and standing by our true essential goodness, while holding fierce warrior boundaries.
Recovering our Magic.
Hecate guides us, illuminating our way as we move into our Shadows; cutting through delusions and lies we have told ourselves and/or believed from others; unlocking the doors to our cut off pieces; and bringing them back with us into a Recovery of Wholeness.
Authentically Rooted in Reciprocal Relationship
& Ready to move forward with Hecate’s wisdom guiding our footsteps
as Daughters of Light & Shadows.
Her Voice is loud in my head.
Calling, Calling… Calling us all to the Crossroads.
To take moral inventory and be fearless in our pursuits of self-healing & recovery;
In accountability and growth; in connection to the whole; and in justice for us all.
Do you hear Her Call? Will you show up at the Crossroads?
August 13th is Hecate’s Night.
