The Meno-Passage can be a challenging time, including for women leaders who normally have it all together. It seems like EVERYthing is changing.

It’s easy to miss out on the BIG GIFTS that arrive with this natural passage. And it’s common to let it take you down, affecting your business, your family, and your health.

We don’t hear about the gifts and benefits of menopause as a rite of passage. Our culture doesn’t celebrate them. We are not generally honored as we reach this stage of the Wise Woman Queen… which is why we created this experience for you.

What used to be easy in your body isn’t anymore. Hot flashes, brain fog, weight gain, fatigue, aches and pains, food sensitivities, lack of libido, and changes in your sexuality.

It’s crucial to celebrate this rite of passage, to consciously connect with other wise women, and to honor this time as the powerful rebirth it’s meant to be.

With expert coaching, specific practices, and a supportive circle of sisters, claiming yourself as the sovereign Wise Woman Queen of your life is the way to usher in the most abundant, relaxing, and fulfilling next chapter of your life.

This juicy, delicious, and potent retreat and session package will land you in a new level of feminine confidence, relax you into effortless leadership, and invigorate your delight in life. You will walk away from this retreat with a new ability to…



We’re here to make sure you have the clarity, clearing, and community to enjoy this best-ever chapter through the Meno-Passage. This includes having full updated clarity on:
