WATER… Water Heals and purifies.
It quenches our bodies and revives our spirit. We subscribe to the truth that WATER is divine and moves through us all. It is for this reason Sacred Waters Retreat holds space near Rivers, Lakes, Waterfalls & Oceans. We invoke the power of WATER to bring women together through emotion, ritual, and connection to the divine feminine.
