We acknowledge this retreat takes place on the traditional territories of the people of the Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta, which includes the Blackfoot Confederacy (comprising the Siksika, Piikani, and Kainai First Nations), the Tsuut’ina First Nation, and the Stoney Nakoda (including the Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley First Nations).
~We laugh together, tell stories, share ideas, dream.
~We heal ourselves and empower each other to rise higher and dig deeper.
~We focus divine energy, release fears, and set intentions.
~We pray and meditate finding the stillness within.
~We celebrate who we are as divine individual beings and discover the sacredness of our spirits.
~We remember the traditions and teachings we once knew, the wisdom that runs in our blood.
~We create a safe, sacred space for rejuvenation and strong connection, setting aside our daily roles, however chaotic or mundane, to once again ground ourselves deep into the warm soil of our Great Mother, the source of life and love.
