• WILD RADIANCE RETREAT

    A DEEP DIVE INTO BOLD SELF-EXPRESSION, SENSUALITY & FREEDOM

     

    June 6th - 11th 2016

    Tuscany, Italy

  • You are Bold. Powerful. Delicious.

     

    But something holds you back from expressing all of who you are.

    The fear that others won't accept the woman deep within - the woman who knows that she can do and be anything she wants, who owns her beauty, her sensuality and her power.

    The fear of what it might mean if you gave yourself permission to be completely free.

     

    And yet the freedom you long for is in reach - it’s so close you can feel the soft brush of its invitation against your skin in quiet moments as that part of you whispers,

     

    “There's more. More to live, to do, to be - more adventure, aliveness, wonder and awe.

    Give this life everything; live fully, wildly, passionately.

    Surrender to yourself and everything within you that is waiting to be expressed.”

     

    It's time.

     

    To choose boldness. To show up fully.

    Raw and real, fiery and fierce.

     

    To join a band of sisters who truly get you.

    Who embrace you as you are.
    Who hold the vision for you of all that you can be;

     

    Authentic. Free. Fully expressed.

    Unapologetically turned on by life.

    Unashamed, unrestrained, uncompromisingly YOU.

     

    In all your wild radiance.

     

  • “Dance, when you’re broken open. Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you’re perfectly free.”

    { Rumi }

  • THE MISSION

    We're bringing together an intimate group of amazing women for a cutting-edge immersion into

    the world of the senses, creation, feminine empowerment, self-expression, liberation, and connection.

     

    The Wild Radiance Retreat is an experiential journey to free your most authentic self,

    to sink deeply into a loving connection with your body,

    and to liberate yourself to be fully expressed,

    wildly alive,

    and bringing your radiance into the world.

     

     

  • THE VIBE

    A NOURISHING, BEAUTY-FILLED CELEBRATION OF LIFE, OF BEING A WOMAN,

    OF FRIENDSHIP, GROWTH AND SELF-ACCEPTANCE

    SPIRIT

    Connect to the divine within

    Connect to spirit through yoga, meditation and mindful practices, creative exploration and deep connection to the verdant countryside of the Tuscan hills, as well as developing grounding practices to support your relentless self-love

    ESSENCE

    Explore and grow

    Experience the perfect balance of soul-centering activities and space for contemplation and play. Creative workshops will give you the space to learn, grow and connect deeply to yourself and the tribe, and come home to your true self

    SENSUALITY

    Deeply embodied enjoyment

    Nourish your being with heavenly Italian food, rich red wine, divine massages, and splashing in crystal clear waters. We'll be tapping into our innate feminine beauty and wisdom, awakening our sensual awareness, and exploring our relationships with our bodies

  • THE JOURNEY

    We'll be doing various forms of yoga (vinyasa, restorative, chakra) and dance practices (ecstatic & sensual) to deepen

    our connection with our bodies (as well as exploring the gorgeous Tuscan countryside and swimming in our private pool!)

     

    We'll use guided & walking meditations to sink into connection with our deepest Self,

    as well as creating sacred and grounding rituals

     

    Our senses are going to be teased into heightened awareness through exploration on all fronts (food, massage, music, essential oils, and the elements), helping us to melt into greater appreciation of all things sensory (and sensual!)

     

    We'll be sitting in circle (around the fire) to share our stories, we'll unpack limiting beliefs, shame and conditioning around our bodies and pleasure, and open spaces for playfully exploring our sensuality and our desires

     

    We'll be exploring self-expression in a variety of ways, including creative activities

    & a personal challenge we'll be asking you to bring!

     

    Connecting with other women and sharing ourselves has its own deeply nourishing effect. Together we'll create an intimate sisterhood; there'll be plenty of time for deep talks, walks, reflection, play and laughter

     

    All this will be within an incredibly safe container where you'll be encouraged to deeply honour your own needs and desires,

    to show up as authentically as you can, to dare to express and share parts of yourself that you usually keep hidden,

    and to give yourself permission to live as a deeply embodied, sensual woman who values her own pleasure and expression

     

    +

     

    YOU will all be bringing your own brand of magic -

    we can't wait to see what the group will co-create together!

  • Testimonials from past retreat participants

    ♥ Love from women of the wildhearted tribe ♥

    "I cannot express with words how the WILD&FREE retreat impacted me. Steph created a loving and relaxing atmosphere where everything was possible and where all of us felt loved, looked after and safe. Both the times where we were working on the content and the times of relaxation were perfectly balanced and constituted a whole experience in which the connections grew and strengthened and which eased a personal transformation.

    Mind, body and soul were perfectly taken care of.

     

    The retreat, for me, provided me with a recognition of my body - I have started to walk paying more attention to my hips, I also walk slower and tend to sway my hips. Only this makes me feel more sure and powerful! I have started to dance sensually at home when I am alone, and look at my breasts with love.

    The retreat has definitely changed me, I have gained more confidence and strength."

    ≜ ≜ ≜

    There was so much magic in the Wild&Free Retreat. Steph's approach allows for so much possibility & freedom, for deep healing, profound insights, for co-creation, for inner creativity to be fully expressed and experienced, and for empowerment. 

    Doing the Retreat was a huge step for me; I was pretty scared of being within a group like that and my biggest fear was that at some point I was going to lose myself and not find my way back. But Steph creates such an easy, safe and loving space to be in that even if your worst fear happens, it’s actually ok. As it happens mine did, and within that sacred space I was able to have a life changing experience by moving through my fear, and as a result now feel much more confident about dealing with this issue and not shying away from such opportunities of being with others. This is huge for me; the start of a new inner fire of freedom.

     

    The Wild&Free Retreat created for me many deep shifts on many levels, within the presence of beauty, conviviality, sacred silences, enlightening inspiration, wild fun, fiery laughs and enchanting feminine complicity. I dared to be myself and was met with nothing but encouragement, acceptance and the embrace of the divine support of sisterhood. I am hugely grateful to Steph and all the sisters present.

    THANK YOU. I have grown with you and I will never forget ♡."
