Her Wild Splendor
A Women's Retreat in the Sacred Valley of Peru
July 27 - August 3, 2019
a women's retreat...
The gift of being woman is to feel deeply. When this gift is awakened, the eroticism of being alive is palpable. We hold the power to experience every one of our cells vibrating with the force of creativity. We have the capacity to be extraordinarily embodied and to move through life guided by our intuition.
Being woman means acknowledging, embracing and embodying the goddess within. It is she who feels tantalising pleasure in the dullest of moments. It is she who walks straight into the darkness, ablaze and fearless.
This retreat will be a reset and a re-sensitization of your feminine nature, established in deep embodiment practices. It is an offering to remember your power to feel and to express yourself as a woman more fully than ever before. In these 7 days, you will be granted an immersion into you in the motherly embrace of the Peruvian Andes.
We are living in a time of great transformation. It is the rise of the feminine. As the women who are being called, it is up to us to stand up, take lead and commence the journey so that we may take part in healing and balancing the divine feminine on this planet.
This retreat is for women of all ages, orientations, abilities and paths. Asana, meditation and pranayama will be included in our daily practices, but this retreat will be so much more than a yoga getaway. This is an invitation into the depths of your womanhood in the presence of sisters to wake up to your radiance. This retreat will include free movement and dance, sister circles, flow and yin yoga, meditation, breath work, self care rituals, journaling, song and voice activation and tons of time spent connecting with nature.
The Sacred Valley of Peru is abundant in ancient history and ceremony, based on the concept of Ayni (living in deep reciprocal relationship with nature). After thousands of years, the Earth’s kundalini energy has recently shifted from the Himalayas to the Andes, which - in short - means that this land holds a magnificent force for transformation. When you are here, you can tangibly feel the sweetness of the plants, the protection of the Apus (the mountains) and the beauty of the silence. It is truly a vortex of potent energy that can’t help but arouse awakenings.

At the end of our time together...
You are a woman full of power, creativity and intuition.
My intention is that you leave knowing this to be true.
"My yoga time with Jessica is sacred time. I have gone through probably the most challenging time of my life, and one of the things that got me through was yoga with Jessica. Somehow I always get what I need and her gentle way of guiding, led me to practicing yoga in a way I never thought I could. Most importantly she guides me into the wisdom of my own body and gives me an opportunity to heal myself and have a gentle, free and loving relationship with my body."
"I attended a yoga retreat with Jessica in Morocco. I was a beginner at yoga and also just beginning to find self awareness and self love. I felt so comfortable and loved during this week and it completely changed my life, as everyday since, I am digging deeper and deeper. I truly don’t think without her I would’ve been able to take that step and come to a lot of realizations within myself. Jessica creates a space that’s super easy going and fun, but very intense if you need it to be. Jessica has made the uncomfortable parts of growth and change such a necessary and revitalizing experience for me."
"Sitting in circle with Jessica has changed my relationship with myself and with other women. I have discovered a newfound confidence in myself and I am now more able to see women as sisters and relate with them vulnerably and truthfully. In Jessica's guidance, I feel safe and in full trust that I will be taken on a transformative journey of healing and into deeper love. I am so grateful for the space that she holds in circles and for all of the beautiful connections with women that have come to me through them."
