Bliss Farm and Retreat in Asheville, North Carolina
She Awakens is a four day/four night intensive women’s retreat created to bring about radical healing and transformative shifts in your life. Have you reached a point in your healing process where you recognize your patterns and your repetitive behaviors, but you don’t know what to do about them? Have you tried multitudes of practices, self-help books, teachers and therapists, but still spiral out about the same upsets over and over again? If so, then you are ready to dive deep into the next level of healing. This level of healing is not a band-aid or spiritual bypass, but rather an “old shit” excavation and compassion filled farewell party to make room for the Wise Woman within to awaken and take charge. How are we going to create this long lasting shift? Not by slaying our demons, killing our ego, or even “fixing” any part of ourselves. Using practical step by step tools, we are going to realize that our demons are simply wounded or traumatized aspects of our Self that are desperately trying to get our attention. We will see how our acting out egos show us exactly which outdated belief systems need an upgrade to match the maturity of our evolution. And with great relief, we will finally claim to the world and ourselves that we are in no need of fixing! What we need and deserve is more love, compassion and acceptance…and we are going to learn how provide it for ourselves!
