Wisdom Wheel Retreat for Women

circle with rainbowAs professional women, daily, we play many roles and often forget to connect with our true selves. On retreat, we slow down and take time to learn how to balance and integrate our mental, emotional, physical and spiritual aspects. We remember who we really are and allow our authentic selves to show up with increased clarity and vibrancy. 

This five day retreat in Sedona, Arizona is a thought provoking introduction to ancient wisdom traditions and earth based methodologies for personal and professional growth. Join us as we connect with nature as both a teacher and a guide. This experience provides an essential foundation and groundwork to explore many cross-cultural skills that include modern approaches and ancient traditions to increase personal effectiveness and excellence.

Women who attend come to engage in deep listening and conversation, enhance their capacity for compassion for self and others, and share stories that inform them and empower them grow, stretch and dream.

You will gain valuable insight from the Wisdom Wheel, a map of guidance for life. Cross culturally, indigenous people around the world have used this map for over 15,000 years to cultivate the four aspects of wholeness and well being. Optimum health in most cultures is expressed as a balance in the four areas of: Leading, Healing, Visioning, and Teaching. Cross-culturally these reflect the four key resources of Power, Love, Vision, and Wisdom.

Most of us tend to over-express one area, while leaving the others underdeveloped. It is important to understand that these resources are universal and available to everyone, regardless of context, culture, structure, and practice. How we connect with ourselves is ultimately how we connect with others. This retreat is structured to develop all four areas with equal emphasis to support optimum health, both individually and collectively, in our family, workplace, and communities.

A residential experience, it is nature based and time spent outdoors is significant. Activities include morning walks, moderate hiking, meditation and a variety of reflection, group activities and conversations.
