we are storytelling creatures... it's how we connect, share, learn.
how archetypes and morals have been passed from generation to generation.
And yet, with our overstimulated environment and the chaos of 2021, we've been inundated with stories that keep us looped in karma, drama, shadow patterns, and disconnection, unless we actively choose differently.
The energy of Winter Solstice and Yule is slow; it's inward...
to unlayer the mind loops from this year that fog our truth, and drop deeper into the core root of our individual and collective soul stories, and our own self-liberation.
a liberation that is calm, that is neutral, that is still.
that does not need to make a big display, yet finds liberation in the stillness of self.
together we enter the void of winter, this gestation period so that we may rebirth into spring, choosing our more powerful stories, preparing to create from this place. Coming back to what's truly important - connection (to self and sisters), syncing with the earth mother's rhythms, depth, living our core essence and truth.
Integration, shedding, stripping, gestating, relaxing. Returning to ourselves as powerful creators.
We work with the energy of the season, a potent time right before solstice to shed these stories and return to our root as winter calls us deeper within. When we resist the energy of winter we burn ourselves out, when we work with these cycles, we rebirth into our Liberation in Spring.
The Location: Yokayo Ranch
Yokayo Ranch is located in the heart of Mendocino County surrounded by the iconic golden rolling hills which are home of the ancient oaks and towering redwoods. The valley floor is filled with organic farms and family run wineries. The property is located on 40 acres and several of those acres are devoted to our farm called Yokayo Roots Farm. Yokayo Ranch is a place of serenity, it is magical. The Bunk House (where we will be staying) is the oldest house on the property, built in the early 1900s. There is plenty of space to walk and take in the beauty, a saltwater pool, hot tub, and fire pit.

This is an unlayering, an undressing of the stories keeping you disconnected from your soul and your true essence. It's a coming back to the root of love and connection. A returning home to the connection within and between sisters, a repairing of any energetic fracturing in the field. All in slowness, as nature slows during this time. As we go deeper into the depths of winter, we too go deeper into renewal and restoration here, into the void, the energy of the crone from which we rebirth.
Essences of this retreat and what you'll experience/receive:
authentic sister connection
heart cracking open into love
body love and integration
Settling of the nervous system
Confidence and trust that comes with liberating self from disempowering stories
It also feels like a counsel... yes I'm here to hold the space and offer practices and journeys and bring people together, and yet your medicine is so welcome. In fact, it's needed! Bring it all, share it all, allow yourself to be witnessed in it as we all step into our channels here. My desire is for this to be less of me "teaching" and more of a collective sharing of our hearts and souls, a co-creative energetic space, where there's no hierarchy and we are all in deep sisterhood union. Winter is time for integration, not inundation of more information.
