For women in or post-menopause.
An empowering, nourishing, re-wilding retreat to uncover your unique beauty, magic and medicine.
We can spend much of our time serving others.
We give to our family, community, work, and responsibilities.
We can end up feeling tired, frustrated, and lost.
And we cannot give from an empty cup.
She takes space to be understood, seen, and heard. She lets go of what no longer serves her.
She is held and feels full and satisfied in her skin. She listens to her body’s wisdom.

She wields her unique and potent magic. Her very presence supports her sisters.

As we enter the Autumn of life – more than ever, it is important to take time to recharge and rejuvenate.
This Autumn from 30th October to 6th November 2023 in Andalusia, Spain, during the week of Samhain, we invite you to fully realise your unique and feminine power.
Be the woman you came here to be: Free, Wild, Connected.
Your host are all Wise Women who through their own life journeys have deepened their knowledge and understanding of wise and wild ways that serve women. They are all experienced teachers and facilitators.
Each has navigated heartbreak and loss; rising through the ashes to reconnect with the Divine Feminine. Each has honed her unique magic and now desires to nourish, serve and empower you to find your own.
We believe the most helpful thing we can do for the world right now is to support Wise Women to fully step into their heart and soul power and be their true and unique gifts.
The intuitive gifts of the Wise Woman are needed, now more than ever.
You are needed.
