Sovereign summer

Hayward, WI


under the full moon in capricorn,
Be held by nature as you explore your most authentic self
Sweet Sovereign Summer


A 3-day immersion
Hayward, Wi – July 18th-21st, 2024

Summer is in its fullness, which is why it’s the perfect time to connect to the ripe, supple, juiciness of yourself and rediscover who you’ve always been.

Have you ever admired the spark of others and wondered…where is mine? Perhaps you experience low libido, a desire for deeper connections in relationships and friendships, or you realize you’re living a life that is just happening to you instead of living fully and abundantly.

This realization can throw you into overwhelm real quick. 

Which is why we’re inviting you to join us for a Sweet Sovereign Summer.

You can expect to have your perspectives on life shifted, your standards, conversations and boundaries raised, and your relationships, mind, body and soul to transform in the most powerful way.

  • You’ll find joy and gratitude in even the most mundane moments
  • You’ll be saying “yes” to things you’ve only ever dreamed about – new homes, new careers – you name it
  • You’ll see how the pains in your body can disappear
  • You’ll leave with the clarity and inner wisdom to open the gateway to whatever you desire

Let’s bask in the glow of summer!

During this immersive retreat, we will cultivate a deeper connection to our feminine essence, giving the body permission to lead. Your body holds an innate intelligence called our original blueprint; connecting to it is easier than you think. 

The nature and sophistication of the mind is designed to keep us safe and resist change. 

You will begin to feel and know yourself through our guided meditations, breath work, embodied movement, nourishing food, hydration, and nature, as we carefully navigate this process with you as you connect to this innate intelligence that is YOU.

Meeting yourself this way doesn’t just allow you to create inner harmony and live in connection with your soul, it’s also how you’ll create a life that actually feels like yours, instead of living out a script that society handed to you.

Prepare to let go of the constraints of your mind, surrender to the wisdom of your body and work with your system in a way that expands way beyond time at the retreat.

What you can expect from this sacred space…

During the retreat, we’ll rediscover who you’ve always been. Through guided meditations, breath work, embodied movement, and group coaching, we will uncover the innate wisdom of the body.

As we land together on Thursday night, we will begin our journey in ceremony, starting to drop in and attune to ourselves and one another. After a restful night of sleep snuggled cozily in the Northwoods sanctuary, we will begin our descent into ourselves with a spacious morning and group coaching! 

You will see how time can stop for three days giving you room to access the truths within. 

You will gain access to what feels like your true spark; this will clear space within the body and support a clearer vision for your future. 

Which is why so many women leave this experience having transcended 20-30 years of pain stored in the body. Sweet Sovereign Summer will kickstart you into cultivating a true relationship with yourself based on trust. You will deepen your understanding of the connection to your body and intuition which will further support you in creating strong boundaries – the foundation to living freely and fully YOU!

The energy we create will take us up, it will take us down, it will take us around, but you can rest easily knowing that you are held by the land herself and the connected facilitators the whole time.
