Women's Medicine Retreat
November 15-18, 2024


Ukiah, Northern California

My Darling...


Are you ready to

know yourself as
the most beautiful

radiant, authentic

version of YOU?

Women have been carrying internal medicines for centuries
Your internal medicines are activated when you KNOW yourself as the wise woman, the visionary, the seer, the intuitive, the healer, the sexual goddess, and the holder of the deepest Cosmic Truths.

During this Transcendent Weekend Retreat, you will embark on a
profound journey to...

 UNLEASH the dormant depths of your being, unearthing the exquisitely tender fragments that have long been forgotten and buried, thereby revealing the absolute ECSTASY of embracing the unequivocal truth - "I am inherently enough."

 RELEASE the subtle layers of coping mechanisms that have veiled your inherent power, and with unwavering conviction, return to the sacred grounds of Truth and Love.

 IGNIGHT the latent fires within, for they hold your precious 'hidden medicines' bestowed upon you by the divine essence at the very moment of your birth.

 UNITE in an extraordinary reunion with the woman who boldly chooses herself, embodying her authentic essence - her radiant True Self.

"The medicine softened my heart, it allowed the love I am, in. A weed nurtured, a fragrant bouquet blossomed inside me. What a profound life-changing experience for me.

I was seen. I was heard. And I can’t wait for the next one!"


Chelsea G.

"The whole experience was a wonderfully held space for inner reflection and deep connection. I’m so grateful for the time to shed some of my walls and remember what it is like to feel like a kid again."



"This experience was held with the utmost integrity. The ripples of what was uncovered in this experience I am sure will continue to reverberate for a long time. I am so grateful I said YES this ~ it was everything I didn’t know I needed. I now feel more resourced and willing to sit with parts of myself that were previously hard to be with, or worse, silenced for too long. Thank you, Sand!"


Maite C.

"You have shown me so much abundant love that my heart bursts at the thoughts of how generous of spirit and heart you are. You are an angel on my shoulder!"
