Deb Kern ~ Sacred Women’s Retreat 1
Oct 21 – Oct 27 all-day

The time is now…

This is a call for every woman to love, honor and express her true self.

 

Join Dr. Deb Kern for this sacred pilgrimage to a magical, Mayan retreat center on Lake Atitlán in Guatemala where you’ll be soothed by the tranquility of the water, held by the strength of the volcano, enticed by the sweetness of the flowers, and awakened by the wildness of the jungle.

 

Lake Atitlan, the deepest lake in Central America, is often called the belly button of the Earth. It is here, held by the energies of the Divine Feminine, that you’ll journey back to your true essence through dance, yoga, meditation, journaling, quiet time, nourishing food, sacred ceremony and supportive sisterhood.

The world needs you to shine your light as the person you were born to be.

This retreat will help you:

* Remember your true nature

* Rediscover your unique gifts

* Reclaim comfort, ease and grace in your body

* Release the past in order to create the life you desire

You’ll feel like yourself again.

Free from self-limiting ideas of what you ‘should’ be doing and who you ‘should be,’ you’ll be filled with energy and clarity to create the life you desire.

Testimonials:

My friend and colleague Dr. Deborah Kern, who I would trust with my LIFE, is giving a rare opportunity for women. I can’t even begin to express how heavenly and empowering Deb’s work is. If you are so moved, sign up NOW while there is still some space.

~Christiane Northrup, M.D., ob/gyn physician and author of the New York Times bestsellers: Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause

Within a safe, supportive environment, an Intensive with Deb Kern engages the mind, opens the heart, awakens the body, and touches the soul. Like Dr. Deb herself, it encourages us to recognize and honor the sacred within.

~Shannon Kring Bruset

What an amazing experience! The way she crafts her class is so insightful. It’s like she has some secret pathway to see inside your heart and life and then gives you exactly what you need!! I left her class feeling exhausted yet energized – and closer to God and myself.
