A Shamanic Retreat In the Heart of Aquitaine, France
Come bee with your sisters.
Together, we will dance and swim,
We will rest and play,
Soak up the wind and sun,
And we will be fed.
Within each of us is a desire to become fully ensouled — uniquely ourselves, fully expressed and embodied. The tonality of that drive shifts throughout our lives, but is perhaps at its most acute as we move through the rights of passage that are Womanhood. Many of us experience these stages without truly embodying, acknowledging or being initiated into their potency and magic.
In the heart of exquisite Aquitaine, we invite you to join us on a four-fold journey where you will thread the needle of your personal Her-story. Through archetypal expression and the exploration of stories surrounding feminine power, wisdom and embodiment, we will move through each of the four phases of our lives: Virgin, Mother, Queen and Crone to heal, reconnect and rewrite our stories.
Just as in nature we ﬁnd cycles of four in the moon, the seasons and the cardinal directions, so we ﬁnd the manifesting energy of four expressed in these stages of a woman’s life. Together we will seek to bend time using ancient bee shamanic practices, ceremony and sacred robes to re-engage and honor these stages. Working in concert with nature, the elements, invisible ley lines and Gaia herself, we will call our very essence home, invoking the spirits of this land to light the way.

Meet Your Guides
SPENDING THE WEEKEND IN SACRED CIRCLE GUIDED BY LIZ AND MICHELE ALLOWED ME TO CONNECT WITH…
…parts of myself that lay dormant. The work awakened and ignited my inner knowing and illuminated the path forward to self acceptance and inspired action. Being introduced to practices that women have performed before me and will after me gave me a sense of community and support that felt grounded and timeless. I look forward to what unfolds as I assimilate the rituals into my life. With love & appreciation.
Michele and Liz are quite a dynamic duo, creating a sacred space that allows participants…
…to relax and tap deeply into inner wisdom and open up to what the universe has to offer. The work with the robes—those magical robes—was truly a transforming experience for me. Unforgettable. Come with an open heart and mind and see what unfolds for you.
