We Welcome you to a weekend of Women's Wisdom, the remembrance of the wisdom within us all

Womens Wisdom | Weekend Retreat,

Dipton, Southland

Friday 17th March - Sunday 19th March

Camp Taringatura, Dipton


Women's Wisdom is a weekend of connecting with the wisdom of your body and the power of your voice, so that you can reclaim your power, speak your truth and live in a way that includes all parts of you.

The messages we receive and experiences we have throughout life can so often leave us disconnected from our body, or feeling like our unique voice isn't valuable and can include shame and shyness about speaking up, having a Voice, being seen and witnessed or getting it right. If we hold on to these messages and experiences, we may end up denying the wisdom of our body, saying yes when we really mean no, overworking, over-giving, being unclear in communication, or not going after the things we truly desire. Living a life that feels less than fulfilling.

We've been there!

As we begin to reconnect to the wisdom of the body and let go of outdated stories, we are able to set clear boundaries, build self trust, say what we mean and take steps towards the things we desire.

When we reclaim our innate wisdom, we begin to live in a way that is authentic and fulfilling, that nourishes our own lives and the lives of those around us.

This is the ongoing practice.

There is absolutely no pre-requisite to have any experience in sound and movement, as inherently the wisdom of our voice and body reveals itself as we come home to its sacred remembering. This is a space in which to be curious and explore the unique quality of your Voice and Body.

What does YOUR voice and movement bring to the collective synergy and sacredness of the field?

We are here to express, remember, allow, and give permission to ALL aspects of our embodied experience.

This is a trauma-informed space where you have permission to take as much time as you need and feel for what is right for you.
