GODDESS RISING: REDISCOVERING SACRED FEMININE POWER
A Wise Woman Rising Retreat with Rebecca Jeffers, M.Ed., LPC
November 10-12, 2017
At this retreat, we will explore the archetypal energies of the Sacred Feminine. These powers represent vast forces of potential that have become diluted or in some cases virtually lost. Today we live in a world trapped by the ideal of perfectionism. We quickly find fault with ourselves and see ourselves as somehow lacking. Our entire lives become centered around performance and achievement. What is missing in the lives of many women (and men) is a connection to the Sacred Feminine life force. Through trauma, disconnection, shame, perfectionism and a disembodied culture, many today are cut off at the neck, living from the head only. To heal the ethic of perfection, we must find our way back to feminine wisdom, to the heart.
Activating the sacred feminine can lead us back to ourselves, to our interior home place. She is the doorway to healing and restoration of creativity, sexuality, love, and compassion. With her energies surging through us we come back into our bodies, re-ignite passion, claim our birthright, and find alignment. No longer do we walk around with our bodies in knots, out of touch with our feelings, not knowing what we need or want. During the weekend we will invite the spirits of Artemis, Aphrodite, Persephone, Inanna, Kali, Demeter, Gaia, Hera, Athena, Ishtar, and Shakti to be our guide and show us the way home.
Additionally, we will work with the core principles of Rebecca’s Wise Woman Rising Coaching ® program of self-love and empowerment. Rebecca teaches a powerful form of individuation that fosters the skills to self-nurture the internal wounded, fear and shame based younger selves so the more resilient, balanced ego adult can continuously and consistently step forward. For it is the full grown woman, the adult self, the Wise Woman self we want living our daily lives. During this retreat, we will gain the confidence to step into a stronger, more vivacious woman thoroughly imbued with the essence of Sacred Feminine power.

Crescent Moon Lodge is a beautiful property located on 60 rolling acres in Rattan Oklahoma (approx. 3 hrs from FW). During our retreat, we will enjoy a half moon. Weather permitting we will have an outdoor fire circle for drumming, dancing, releasing and setting our intentions for the future. The weather at this time of year tends to be beautiful.
