A Woman's Worth Retreat

This is your invitation to renew your wild and precious life …boldly, beautifully and bravely!

Join Dawn in May 2019 at Paradise Hills Ranch, Lumby, BC, Canada. Immerse and indulge your self-care and self discovery on 700 acres of pristine Canadian wilderness.

ONLY ONE DATE this year at this location, register now.

In over 25 years of teaching personal development, natural health and self- discovery, I have found that it is common for us to isolate ourselves, stifle our feelings, or remain “smoldering in the fires” of life. Especially when going through the tough times. Over the years, I have learned that within nature, we are never alone. We are guided by Mother Earth to rekindle the fires within our heart and to find out or renew who we truly are and meant to be.

Most of us live our lives in “habitual adapting”. We listen, observe, engage and often unconsciously believe in the voices of others. Our pasts, our environments and the people influencing them shape a large portion of who we have become. So often, we shackle our true selves, silence or doubt our inner voice and minimize our hopes and dreams. We consistently search for answers, unaware that we have already found them. Emotional sedation and suppression may capsize our self-worth. Symptoms such as fear, anxiety, unhappiness, depression, shame, worry, loneliness, and unfulfillment are all fiery embers inviting deeper understanding. We must learn to shield ourselves from outside influences and to regain insight into who we truly are. With grace and confidence, the time is here to blaze our own trails.


There is a voice guiding us to transform, to grow, to be. We must listen to this voice in order to rekindle the fire within our heart and wake up the voice within.

There are always great gifts on the winding roads of discomfort, adversity and pain. We are all recovering from something. Transitions and crossroads in life is true nature. There are times however when we dim the fire in our heart, content with the comfort of a “good life” or consciously fearful to move into a new life or chapter or change. This is where the journey towards listening or finding the voice within begins and where vulnerability and courage can ignite your inner fire.

Come share your doubts, your dreams, your mischief, your pain. Come listen to the stories of others and come share your own, so that we may remember how beautiful, bold and brave we truly are.

Dawn and the land will be here to welcome you home and awaken or renew your voice within!

  • Ignite your Inner Fire and face your fears
  • Awaken your inner voice and surpass your limitations
  • Reconnect to your Spirit and stop settling for less than you are
  • Strengthen your Soul and cultivate the courage to proceed towards your true nature
  • Inspire your Heart with clarity, purpose and meaning and, an action plan
