Become the Woman You Were Born to Be:
A 5-day Heroine’s Journey

Sister, you are a born leader. Whether you see yourself as one, or not. As women, we lead in countless ways: in homes, classrooms, businesses, communities, with our children, in our vocations. We’re teachers, wives, girlfriends, partners, parents, grandparents, CEO’s, coaches, healers, and mentors (and a myriad other things).

Yet, few of us have discovered the art of feminine leadership. When called to lead (and we are all called), we squeeze ourselves into masculine leadership styles. We squelch our natural brilliance. We abandon our intuitive flow. We disown the most beautiful and creative parts of ourselves — and live under a inner tyranny of perfectionism, inner criticism, unhealthy drive, and life-constricting control.

Meanwhile, our true inner leader–our inner, wise woman– waits patiently, knowingly, deep within. SHE may only whisper, but SHE is never lost. And HER voice will guide you home.

Your Journey to Radical Feminine Empowerment

As women, we can only become great leaders by first turning within to this inner, wise self. By discovering our uniquely feminine rhythms, and learning to hear and trust your SHE, we can harness our most powerful qualities: wisdom, clarity, sovereignty, nurturance, strength, compassion, and creativity.

When we’re attuned to that still place deep within, we know our true desires. Decisions flow with intuitive ease. Yes’s are joyous and no’s are lovingly firm. We dance skillfully with our cycles, seasons, and soul-rhythms. Creativity and beauty twinkle through our every movement.

The path into this empowered feminine leadership asks everything of us. It’s a radical journey that starts within … and ripples out to impact our entire existence. From how we move our bodies and feed ourselves, to the clarity of our voice, to our relationship with ourselves and everyone we meet.

Deep Inner Work Doesn’t Have to be Lonely

Women are wired for connection. Relationships challenge and nurture even the most solitary she-wolves.

This unique retreat gives you the skills, sisterhood, confidence, and knowledge you need to live a divinely feminine, soul-centered life….and in turn to lead others…so that you can finally be the woman you came here to be.

This Heroine’s Journey Weaves Together Every Aspect of Your Life

During this uniquely integrated retreat (addressing ALL parts of yourself– body, psyche, and soul), you will travel from your outer landscapes to the innermost ones, discovering your inner SHE through:

  • SHE Yoga (Women’s Yin & Flow)
  • Meditation
  • Voice Dialogue with Your Inner Family of Selves
  • Dance & Devotion
  • Shadow Work
  • Healthy Eating
  • Women’s Circle Practices
  • Play, Rest, Pampering, and Time in Nature
  • Sacred Silence & Conscious Conversation
  • Solitary Intuitive Journaling & Self-Inquiry

You are being called into leadership in all parts of your life, whether you’re raising a family, coaching others towards happiness, or healing yourself.

This retreat will show you how to find your inner feminine leader to:

  • Slow down, learn from, and cultivate your inner resources
  • Take up space and be big despite your fears…
  • Nurture your inner leader through surrender, self-trust, and radical faith
  • Create healthy boundaries (not barriers) in service of a larger you …
  • Prioritize your self-care, nourishment, and rest …
  • Include your sexuality in service of your healthy self-expression….
  • Become available and receptive to more beauty and pleasure
  • Dissolve the guilt, shame, and fear blocking you from your deepest joy
  • Befriend your inner critic to gain self-esteem, presence, and insight
  • Find the gold hidden inside your biggest challenges
  • Rediscover lost or disowned parts of yourself, including your inner little girl (she knows the joy of leadership!) …
  • Transform your demons and shadow side into your greatest allies
  • Reconnect to the unshakeable & liberating truth: you are beautiful and powerful, simply by being yourself
  • Undergo a feminine initiation from the darkest parts of yourself to the light, while reclaiming the long-lost parts of your soul.

Discover Your Inner Leader … While Getting Pampered and Rested in Paradise

We know how to host a retreat for women, by women.Sara has been holding women’s retreats in Thailand for the past decade! This SHE Leadership retreat will be held in the stunning Moroccan-inspired boutique resort, the Absolute Sanctuary, in Koh Samui, Thailand.

When a woman is relaxed and rested, she is the most resourceful, receptive, creative and in tune with her Feminine Soul.
