Autumn Retreat - Dancing Forest Sisterhood New Zealand

What does it feel like to be friends with courage? To have courage as our champion, an inner cheerleader?

These times call for bravery, for authenticity. This is not a time to shy away from being who we are called to be or to lean away from hard decisions.

Through movement, reflection, song, ritual and workshops we will peer into what is keeping us small and allow it to flow through and out, making space for US in all our complexity and truth and, y'know, us-ness.

We will gather together at this stunning beachfront retreat to restablish our intimate kinship with the earth and to embody our interconnectedness with our fellow travellers.

Expect to be held in a safe container so you can go deep and open to the wild magic within us and all around us.

Let's dance, play and weave a little wonder together.

Friday September 4th - Sunday September 6th

"“Lucy created a safe and loving space for once strangers to connect deeply on an emotional and spiritual level. Baring our souls together through guided visualisations, circling, singing, dancing and connecting with nature was a profound experience and one that’ll stay with me for life!”
Emma - Dancing Forest Sisterhood Retreat Participant

"After coming to know Lucy's work online, it was truly touching to see the community she's cultivated come together in person with even more spirit and warmth than I could have dreamed of!"

More about the location:

Ashram Yoga’s Ohui Retreat is located on a beautiful 20-acre beachfront property at the northern end of Opoutere Beach on the Coromandel Peninsula. Just 2-hours’ drive from Auckland, Ohui is about 15 minutes north of Whangamata.

This is a small retreat, with  very limited places in a beautiful shared retreat centre on the beach. We can accommodate all diets and can work with you to make sure this retreat suits you.

"Lucy's retreat was my first time away on my own from my 4 year old son. It was the best first trip I could have made and true nourishment for the soul.  She held us with her kindness and sisterly knowing so that we were able to drop deeply into connecting with each other and our beautiful wild surroundings.  It felt so relaxing to be with the other women in this way and for us to drop the egos, personalities, masks and just be us."
