May 2-12th 2024
12pm Saturday - 3pm Sunday
Milipitas, Big Sur, CA
The Women's Wilderness Ceremony is an opportunity to be in deep connection with the land, community, and soul through 11 days in the wilderness of Big Sur, four of which are spent in a 4-day, 4-night solo journey (with the option to fast- see "vision fast" ceremony).
The solo journey is an opportunity to mark life change or transition, and may be treated as a severance from an old identity or way of being in the world, an honoring of who you are now, or an honoring of who you are becoming. For some, this ceremony will be a rite of passage into a new role, identity, or phase of life.
This is a time to be held by the land, listen deeply, and receive healing and transformation, all within a strong container of women.
What to Expect:
The program is divided into three sections; severance, threshold, and incorporation. The first three days are a time of ‘severance’ or separation from your daily life, leaving behind what no longer serves, and setting intentions for your solo. The ‘threshold time’ is your solo time of four days and nights in the eastern Big Sur wilderness, Milipitas. The three days following the solo time are the first days of your incorporation experience, where we will learn to incorporate the gifts from your journey into your life and community.
You may also expect:
• Nature-based Ritual
• Medicine Walks
• Embodiment Practices
• Community Meals
• Two Experienced Guides (WFR Cert)
• A Loving Container
