UNRAVEL

A women’s retreat in Joshua Tree

Jan 18-21, 2019

 

“Thriving is what was meant for us on this earth. Thriving, not just surviving, is our birthright as women.”
Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Women Who Run with the Wolves

if you are longing to get away

to come back to yourself

to be nourished by sisterhood

to share your stories

to take care of your body

to get lost in the desert

and gaze up at the stars…

come join us.

UNRAVEL is a 3-night retreat for women who want to experience and co-create a space of safety, rest, healing, nourishment, and deeper connection to self and each other. Because we value depth and intimacy, we’re holding space for just 8 women.

Together, we will enjoy:
🌵 MOVEMENT: yoga, dance, and walks in Joshua Tree National Park
🌵 NATURE: stargazing, sunset-viewing, and wandering around the desert
🌵 SLOWNESS: meditation, reflection, and much-needed rest
🌵 HEALING + TRANSFORMATION: sharing your stories and experiences, learning from each other, and lots and lots of safety, support, and guidance
🌵 SISTERHOOD: lots of quality time to connect, celebrate your uniqueness and connectedness, and to remember that you are never alone on this journey <3

“Spending quality time with other women while surrounded by nature was a truly magical experience. I spent the weekend connecting deeply with myself — through reflection and collective processing, I was able to work through personal roadblocks that have been holding me back for years.

Gabby V

“The retreat was an amazing mix of inner exploration, healing, connectivity and silly fun! The friendships I built there have continued to inspire me, challenge me, and allow me to grow more fully into the woman I truly am. I am a more courageous and loving woman after attending the retreat.”

Nina B

“There’s something powerful about women gathering around shared intentions and walking together in support of their individual journeys. This was particularly special for me because of the difficulties I’ve had trusting other women. I felt well cared for by the way everything flowed, and enabled to walk in my own power while also feeling the support of others… a rare and magical experience.

Melina M

“The retreat helped me feel safe and find a centered space within myself while witnessing the beauty and amazing spirits of other women. It was everything it needed to be.

Denise has given me personal guidance through my spiritual journey to help me better understand myself and how to harness my spiritual and feminine energy. She has such a calming and accepting presence, and is greatly in tune with herself and the divine. I highly recommend receiving work done by Denise to anyone looking to better understand themselves, expand their spiritual journey, or simply to be in the presence of a magnificent goddess/healer/witch.”

Stephanie is committed to the work of healing and transformation. As a sensitive soul navigating her own journey towards wholeness, she is passionate about creating safe spaces that allow women to show up exactly as they are and connect from the heart.

Through retreats and other healing experiences, she offers new ways for women to relate to each other, access their inner wisdom, and co-create a safer and more inclusive world for all. Stephanie finds delight in (vegan-ish) dessert, reading too many books at the same time, and falling in love with the Moon.

“Stephanie has a bold and unique vision for creating and maintaining female bonds – one that allows space for healing past wounds while at once inviting her community to play an active part in creating the experience they would like to be a part of. I found myself returning home feeling softer, more connected to myself, more curious about my female friends, and maybe most importantly, more connected with the power of my own choices.”
