reviews of the retreats
"To the sacred women who stumble upon this retreat."
- Heather, British Columbia
"I just knew this would be an important experience for my personal journey. Little did I know what an understatement that would be! Our writing circle was life-changing. It’s been a long time since I’ve felt so seen, heard, and supported. The commentary and encouragement that arose from the sharing of our deepest truths was intelligent, constructive, and empowering. To be able to share and receive such supportive, thoughtful feedback is a gift everyone deserves to experience. The rewards I left this retreat with are immeasurable and beyond dear to my heart. There are major milestones in life that are so much sweeter when shared; this retreat is the perfect example. Together, we were encouragers, empathizers, enliveners, inspirations, and mirrors to each other. Aimee is a special soul; her heart shines through in everything she does. Her unapologetic, genuine pursuit of the truth is the backbone behind this powerhouse of a program. Her writing prompts are meaningful and flexible with a consistent theme of ‘getting to the heart of the matter’ and her ability to create an uplifting group dynamic while holding space is exceptional. In her presence, you will be blessed with her warmth, wisdom, and (mischievous!) humour. As we were packing up to leave, I wrote “How has it been a week already? How has it only been a week?” Pieces of my heart will forever live with these women in Guatemala, but not in a way that feels like I’m leaving something nonrenewable behind. I feel that with every piece I’ve left, something greater has been gifted to me in return. For anyone who is reading this and thinking “Should I take the leap?” Do it. You will be caught and brought home to a personal reality greater than you can imagine... if you’re ready to do the work! This is not a journey for the faint of heart; to be present with yourself, to dedicate this effort, this time for yourself, takes a brave soul ready for transformation. To the sacred women who stumble upon this retreat, you are being called. You’re meant to be here."
