THE ALCHEMY OF DESIRE 2.0: Tools for Turning Your Lead to Gold
September 20-22, 2019
Vulnerability, Self Love, and Soul Passion as Radical Transformation
A weekend intensive for powerful women ready to step fully into their most authentic life
“If you are not free to be who you are, you are not free.”
~ Clarissa Pinkola Estes
“Your feelings are the utmost priority; your desires are more important than anyone else’s deadline or mandate.”
Who said transformation has to take months or years of therapy, workshops, books?
What if you could rapidly move through the doorway by taking back your power through a series of practices of radical self-love?
The time for wallowing in the mire is truly over. In these urgent and potent days on planet Earth, we are called to cut through the crap and get really real, really clear, really wild and really inspired.
In this revolutionary weekend intensive, we will cross the threshold of the ordinary and plunge into the depths of our souls, invoking our raw and EMBODIED selves. In Sacred Temple Space, a safe and holy container for deep catharsis and reclamation of feminine power, we will deeply explore our Truest Desires, our Soul Longings, and our Bodies’ Knowings.
Turning our lead to gold means not pushing away or cutting off aspects of our selves or psyches we think are dark or sinister but rather invoking them to come into the light to be expressed, danced, moaned and transformed into resources that fuel our passions and purpose.
The Equinox is the perfect time to do this work–when the darkness and the light are in balance.
Along the way, we will laugh, be irreverent and have a LOT of fun being in a circle of bold, honest, juicy and powerful sisters.
If you attend our Alchemy Intensive in April, you will find there are even MORE exercises and tools that you haven’t experienced before.

Spirit Hollow has tent cabins with bunks. These are shared with up to four-six other women. You need to bring bedding, such as sleeping bags and pillows. You can also sleep in the yurt in an open, shared space or bring your own tent and camp out.
To keep costs low, we ask that you brink two potluck dishes; come having already eaten on Friday evening. Since there won’t be enough space or time for chopping and cooking, these should be already cooked dishes that can be easily heated in the oven or on the stove; you can also bring a crock pot. We will coordinate food by using an online Potluck Planning site to enter what you’re bringing so we don’t have overlap. Bring your own breakfast stuff for Saturday and Sunday. Spirit Hollow will provide coffee, tea, milk and other beverages for all meals.
Remember, this is a rustic retreat: we have outhouses, which are clean, have skylights and inspirational reading material on the walls. You may use the kitchen in the house for water and washing up.
The cost is $175 for the weekend.
