Awaken the Goddess Within

May 13-15, 2022

A 3 Day Sacred Feminine Retreat led by Flora Ware

and hosted at Epona Rise Retreat Center, Kamloops, BC, Canada

Eyes sharp and Body strong,
I move through my home of

Deep and Ancient Forests.
Some call me Diana, others call me Artemis.
I am the 
Lady of Communion.
Guardian of Life, Daughter of Gaia,
I am born of the Sacred Marriage of green & gold, earth & sun.
As I Intend, I Empower, my Arrows rising high
sending prayers that all Hearts will remember to beat as one.

When was the last time you felt wild and free? 
With a light heart and a kick in your step, smiling wide as the wind plays with your hair?

When was the last time you connected with yourself, and other women, in a sacred way — face to face? 
The internet can connect us, but coming together in person can transform us.

During this sacred feminine retreat, you will experience ritual, sisterhood, adventure, and healing. 

You will leave with new friendships, skills and tools for your spiritual path and soul's journey. In communing with divine feminine energy through archetypal practices and temple ceremonies, you will become more connected to your truth, wisdom, and power.

The magic of these 3 days will stay with you for a lifetime. Join us!

Imagine gathering with a group of women under the full moon.

You feel the earth's embrace under your feet as you are led to a bonfire. 

The sound of the drums and women's voices awakens a deep remembrance within you. 

You throw your fears into the flames to be transmuted.

The night sky, the forest, and your sisters all bear sacred witness as you sing your prayers up to the moon.

You go to sleep that night a changed woman: lighter, braver, clear.

You are invited

We are delighted that you are feeling the pull to Awaken the Goddess Within!

Spend 4 nights and 3 days in the beautiful BC wilderness, communing with nature and deepening into your magic and mythic self in workshops and ritual ceremonies.

There is room for 12 participants only, due to accommodation limits and the intimate nature of this retreat.

During our sacred feminine retreat, we will:

  • Co-create ceremonial temple space
  • Connect deeply with nature elements and the moon
  • Access and explore the archetypal energy of the Lady of Communion
  • Expand, Embody and Empower with her teachings of: Harmonization, Sacred Marriage of Gaia Green & Solar Gold, Sovereignty, Guardian of All Life, “I Intend, I Empower”
  • Experience the healing and magic of sacred sisterhood
  • Be guided to release our fears and clear away old soul contacts and ancestral trauma
  • Feel where we shrink from our authentic creative power
  • Transform our negative relationship to power through communion and true sovereignty
  • Be seen and celebrated in our strength and radiance

Epona Rise Retreat Centre

Epona Rise Retreat Centre is an elegant 80 acre ranch nestled in a lush mountain valley. This will be our home and forest temple for 3 days, supporting your time here with the special energy of the land and breathtaking views. 

This is where owner Hillary Schneider cares for a herd of over 20 horses, almost all rescues. You don't need to know horses or have experience with them to be powerfully impacted by their medicine. All of the experiences with the horses are done on the ground at liberty in their 50 acre pasture.

What Sisters Are Saying:

"Flora is an amazing leader. I loved every minute of learning from her on the Awaken the Goddess Within retreat in Ireland. My life will be forever changed for the better. So grateful I found Flora!" 

- Renae Paschal Southworth

"Every time I have signed up for an experience with Flora, I get giddy. Every time I finish an experience with Flora, I want to burst forth into the world and create, express, share and grow. Flora knows exactly when you need a push, and when you need a shoulder to cry on. She creates safe, uplifting, welcoming space to be vulnerable, to weep in sorrow, shout with joy, or rage out - whatever it is your soul needs in order to heal and move forward." 

- Shona Fraser

"I had the true honor of sitting in ceremonies held by Flora Ware for 9 days in Ireland. What a powerful space holder she is! Flora really brings the magic -- through song, through channeled messaging, through holding the light of the divine with total and pure devotion. The energy she helped me open to was powerful, healing and transformative. I would recommend joining her in sister, moon and Goddess circle whenever you feel the call to open yourself to deeper connection."

Charlotte Elea

"Flora's knowledge, love and passion about the sacred work she does is a true reflection of who she is and what she teaches in her group. I have the privilege of attending her Sacred Soul Circles and I'm honored to experience the safe place she holds for all of us every month. She has the magical ability to fill your heart and soul with her positive energy and help you transform into the confident and powerful woman you truly are. If you haven't already worked with her in some form, I strongly suggest you do so. Mark my will be an experience of a life time." 

- Angie Ioakimidou
