Drawing upon a lifetime of studying and teaching sacred cultural dances around the world, Jacqui Lalita offers a format for women to unearth their sensual connection and innate body wisdom through the healing medicine of movement. You will ignite inner alchemy and feel the wise, wild & sacred feminine dancing through every cell of your being. 
These dances are born of ancient sands from a time when women knew the power within their soul and spine. These movements and the hidden pathways revealed within them can help us to walk in beauty and deeper connection to our bodies and the body of the living Earth. 
It is common for women to experience deep healing within their pelvis and belly during these retreats, and to tap into their creative potential and embodied sensuality. 
We are so happy to welcome you to a weekend of ritual, magic, connection, sisterhood and healing movement as we dance our dreams awake together.

Every woman is invited and welcomed! All ages, shapes & backgrounds! No experience needed just an open heart and mind to receive new tools to heal, relax, recharge, reignite and reconnect with yourself.

Hosted by Kathy Soles & Carmen Garzon
