The routine of life can wear us down. Feeling stuck, or not good enough, is more common among women than you think. Additionally, as women we often feel the pressure to 'be it all'. Many of us believe that we should be professionally successful, be strong but vulnerable, be approved of by others, be available to our friends, families and significant others, and on and on and on.... And for some of us, after years of striving and pleasing and adapting, we begin to wonder if there is something more. The questions start to arise.

What if...?
What else...?
What's possible...?
What do I want...?

If these are familiar questions, then the Women Rising Retreat is for you! Whether you are at a transitional point in your life, looking for inspiration and motivation, or determined to bring your health, relationships, or business success to new levels, we have you covered.

On this unique retreat, you will immerse yourself in beautiful new surroundings, unplug and connect with other like-minded women in an honest, compassionate way.

At the Women Rising Retreat, our focus is on you.

Our goal is to ensure that each participant feels supported and taken care of throughout our program. In this four day intensive you will experience the following:
• Over 22 hours of group interaction and individual reflection
• Time off each afternoon to rest, reflect and renew
• Healthy and delicious meals
• A beautiful setting to relax and reconnect with yourself

To ensure each participant has a deeply transformative experience, we have assembled a team of incredible women who will guide you in areas that will support you on your journey as you RISE up. To read more about this soulful and committed team of practitioners, visit our website.

You deserve the time and space to reflect, renew and reconnect so you can return to your life with a clear mind and an open heart.

About the Presenter(s): 

Sarah Healy is a co-founder of Women Rising Retreat and the BlueSky Project. A self declared recovering perfectionist, Sarah’s journey began at 16 years of age when she was held as able by a handful of wise women, and she’s had the bug ever since. Sarah believes that there is a call to women to RISE UP happening now that starts at the global level and reaches all the way to our small communities. Sarah is committed to inquiry and self-development and brings levity and a warm presence to any gathering. A mother to two strong-willed daughters, Sarah is committed to leaving this world a better place for the up and coming women.

Katie Fredricksen is a co-founder of the Women Rising Retreat and the BlueSky Project. She is a possibility thinker and a glass half-full kind of person. She is a lover of adventure, travel, and exploration. Katie has a deep passion for working with women and witnessing their rising, as she personally has experienced what it feels like to move from living small to embracing her power. She is thrilled to have the opportunity to help create an environment where women can truly come alive in all of the messy, exciting, and complicated ways that we do.

Amber Mayes is a warrior. She is a special soul. Her heart reaches so deep and far and wide that she really has the capacity to feel, grasp and hold the complexities and intricacies of the heart of the world. She holds, witnesses and nurtures you with gentle unconditional, non-judgmental kindness, starting exactly where you are. She is a skilled facilitator who helps women create empowering stories.

Kehaulani Aspen is a soulful practitioner who incorporates a unique blend of skill sets, which include various practices from martial arts and somatic psychology. Her passion and approach reach beyond the cognitive layer and rests deeply in an embodied, grounded, and vibrant style. She holds a 1st degree black belt in the Japanese martial art, Aikido, as well as a 1st degree black belt in Advanced Response Training – a personal protection combative art. Her new favorite movie is Wonder Woman (which we think is quite appropriate for her!)

Anna Wilson is passionate about sharing her appreciation for our greatest gift, the human body. She is a speaker and a health educator who received her training from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and works to inspire individuals to improve their relationship with their body as a means to reaching all their goals. She believes we develop an appreciation for our body, it gives us access to power that directly effects all areas of our lives, from our health to our relationships. She is sincere, committed and wears her big beautiful heart on her sleeve.

Sara Whiteford and Mary Barber are identical twin sisters who believe that consciousness around food choices help us to heal our guts and lead us to greater vitality, mental clarity, and overall better health. These twins will make you feel like a million bucks in more ways than one. They are joyful, hilarious, optimistic, kind and they speak in stereo. It's like nothing you have ever experienced and they will leave you wanting more!
