Transformational Women’s Retreat
January 9 -15, 2022

It’s time . . . Give yourself some room to breathe.

This retreat is the culmination of decades of training, practice, and humbling life experiences for both of us. Beyond the collection of our individual skills and offerings, something magic happens when we come together. It feels sweet . . . divine . . . and bursting with vitality! We are sculpting this experience for you with deep care and attention to detail; fueled by the radiant joy that expands when we are together. This joy is palpable and contagious, and there is plenty of it to go around. The currencies of our friendship? Pure delight, deep soul sistership, and a profound capacity to transform any challenge into inspiring experiential wisdom. We are here to serve YOU!

About the Instructors:

Rachel Wyatt

Rachel is an artist, a yoga teacher and a midwife for transformation.   Her teaching resides in the place where art, education and transformation meet.   How can we compost the raw material of our daily lives to cultivate experiential wisdom?   How can our lives align with and embody the divine, generative and compassionate nature of the Creator?

At the heart of her teaching is an invitation to attune awareness to the more subtle layers of the felt senses, to unwind habitual patterns of reaction and to practice being at peace with reality as it is.  Her Vipassana meditation practice guides all aspects of her life and is the wellspring from which she draws experiential wisdom.

Rachel’s Yoga classes create a nurturing space where slowing down  and tuning-in to the rhythm of the breath encourage relaxation and healing.  Rachel began practicing Yoga and meditation in 1998 and has been teaching Yoga since 2009.  Her approach is dynamic and intuitive, attending to the unique process of each individual student. Beginners will feel welcome and will be clearly guided through a well-rounded sequence with detailed alignment cues and gentle hands-on adjustments.  Rachel sings for her students at the end of each class, offering up her voice as an instrument of GRACE.

Sarah Wildeman

This will be the 24th retreat that Sarah has facilitated. Sarah’s presence gives you permission to BE, to rest in who you are, as you are.  Her words invite a deepening of self-reflection, gently pointing towards courageous transformative action. She brings deep curiosity, a compassionate heart, and a unique ability to truly see people, to serve her clients as they uncover truth within themselves that they might not have otherwise discovered. She leads with grace and is not afraid of the fullness of a person.

She led her first women’s circle in 2003, and has spent her life in a practice of creating safe space for others to come home to themselves.  When she trained and certified as a coach in 2014 she discovered that she already was a coach by nature: asking powerful questions, challenging the status quo, seeing the potential in everyone, and motivating real action.

Sarah is wholeheartedly engaged in working on herself: open to be transformed by every experience. This practice yields wisdom that she shares with an authority and integrity that is well beyond her years.  Sarah offers this total attentiveness and deep care to each of her clients, guiding them joyfully toward embodying the clarity of vision that rises to the surface whenever she is around. Sarah has a very unusual capacity to sustain her attention on the divinity within any given situation, revealing surprising clarity of vision and deep integrated healing.
