Sister, I feel so honored and privileged to share this with you during such a powerful time of transformation on the planet.I have been timelessly nurturing this vision in my heart, and the time has now come for me, for you, for all of us to gather in this way. I am here in service to the awakening of women, communities and all Beings in the name of Love, Truth and Harmony. I lovingly invite you to join us, in sisterhood, for this transformative and healing four day retreat.
In love and devotion, Lacey

Emergence Women’s Retreat 2017 ~ Anishnabe Spiritual Center
Initiation is a rites of passage retreat for women who are open, ready, and truly willing to reawaken to and discover the Truth of who they are, and have always been. A rites of passage is a time of transition & transformation marked by a special ceremony. Our retreat includes a variety of ceremonies, ancient practices and rituals honoring rebirth and renewal, including a traditional sweat lodge ceremony, guided by a local elder.
The sweat lodge is a symbolical return to the womb and will invite us to deepen our connection with the womb of the earth, the celestial womb of creation and our own womb blueprint. We will be supported and witnessed by our sisters as we release to mother earth what is not serving us, and remember how to walk the Beauty Way. We will emerge from this ceremony with a sense of renewal and rejuvenation. A separate ritual will be offered for women who will be on the first 3 days of their moon time during the retreat.
With the lotus flower as our inspiration, we too shall root, ground and spiral into the earth as we honour the feminine lunar path of descent. Our yoga, movement and temple arts practices will focus on the first and second chakras, the seat of the feminine throne. Since we spend so much of our time “up in our minds,” we will invite our energy back into our lower power centers. As the empowered woman you are, you can self initiate this profound remembrance and reawaken lost feminine knowledge living within you.

Beautiful, remember that you are so much more than you believe yourself to be. When you say YES to this remembering and initiation into the next layer of your journey, it is a gift for yourself, your family, friends, community, the entire planet and all of consciousness! It is your birthright to come home to who you are, and to live it in an embodied way.
Unidentify from the pain, fear, shame, limiting beliefs, control, judgement, toxic patterns, never ending thoughts, stress and wounding from “your story.” Step into the portal of rebirth & renewal. Radiate this newly rediscovered essence in all you do whether you yearn to birth a project, a child, a more conscious and loving way of being or a more intimate connection with this phase of your feminine cycle.
Recognize there is a deeper dimension of your Being that is also pulsing in all of creation. It is here, right now. Can you feel it?

About the Retreat Center
Anishinabe Spiritual Center is situated in the wilderness of Northern Ontario, in the Manitoulin Island–North Shore region, nestled among trees at the edge of scenic Anderson Lake. It is quiet, peaceful, natural, and the perfect sanctuary for our time together. The vision of the center, Wasse’aandimikaning – a place of enlightenment for spiritual nourishment, growth and healing – truly supports the intention of the Initiation Retreat. The center is 4.5 hours from Toronto, 6 hours from Ottawa, 1 hour from Sudbury and minutes outside of Espanola. The closest airport is Greater Sudbury Airport (YSB).
The undulating shoreline of birches, maples, pines, fir, and spruce trees offers secluded places to appreciate the water, while the rocky elevated areas provide some prominent views of the lake and surrounding hillsides.
The retreat schedule includes ample opportunity to connect with nature and the retreat’s swimming area, walking trails, canoes, kayaks, labyrinth, bonfire and waterside meditation and relaxation nooks.

Selfless service is an invitation from me to we; to go beyond “what’s in it for me?” and into “how can I be of service to our community of sisters and the benefit of all through my own journey.” Sacred Service, mentored by Lacey, includes the role of Kitchen Angel to assist with clean up of lunch and dinner as well as Temple Keeper to assist in pre retreat set up; maintaining cleanliness and purity of the space, setting up as needed for various ceremonies throughout the retreat, and post retreat clean up of the space. Please inquire if you are interested in this opportunity. Space is on first come first serve basis, by application.

Feel into your heart, and if this is a YES! for you,
I am writing from a beautiful winter wonderland in Northern Ontario in Canada, where I am currently spending time at my parent’s home where we are all on a family healing journey.
In October 2018, we found out that my father was diagnosed with throat and tongue cancer, and so I felt called to be of service in the deepest way. Some travels plans were cancelled, and i left my job! I was on a mission to Educate and Inspire (the vision behind Holistic Lacey) a natural, non traditional, healing pathway without chemo or radiation (and to save my father’s life!). Long story short, fast forward 3 weeks, my dad said YES!
You can read more below about all the many ways we are healing cancer naturally and holistically with the help of a naturopathic doctor as well as all the steps we take at home. I share this with you as some of you may either have/ will have/had cancer, or know a friend or loved one who will walk this path. It is my deepest prayer that all Beings have the education and knowledge to make informed treatment choices and know that natural options are available and effective.
If you feel inspired to make a contribution to our GO Fund me campaign to cover the $20 000+ cost, we welcome this fully.
Did you eat peanut butter balls for the holidays as a child too??? Gone are the days of kraft peanut butter and icing sugar so here is my healthy adult version inspired by @emily.likes.food but with my own twist!
Ingredients 1 1/3 cup almond butter 1/4 cup pure maple syrup 🍁 1 heaping TBSP organic blackstrap molasses 2 tsp freshly grated ginger root or 1 tsp ground/dry 1.5 tsp ground cinnamon 2 Tbsp coconut flour 1 tsp vanilla extract Pinch of salt 2 medjool dates, cut into small pieces
In a bowl, combine all ingredients except dates, until everything is well mixed.
Roll into balls with about 1 Tbsp mixture. Add more flour if its too wet.
Press a piece of date into the centre. Roll again.
2.5 cups organic light spelt flour 3 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp Himalayan salt heaping 1/4 cup of organic coconut sugar 2 tsp cinnamon (it’s our favourite) 2.5 cups nut mylk/ non dairy milk of choice 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar 1/4 cup organic coconut oil, melted 1 tbsp vanilla extract 3 cups frozen blueberries
Preheat waffle maker. In a bowl, combine apple cider vinegar with nut mylk and let sit. Mix all dry ingredients in another bowl. Add vanilla and coconut oil into the milk mixture. Add wet ingredients to dry. Combine. Fold in blueberries. Once the waffle maker is ready, scoop in the batter using a 1/3 cup measuring cup and cook for about 6-8 minutes. Top with fresh fruit slices, canadian maple syrup, hemp seeds or feel free to get extra fancy with a coconut or cashew whipped cream. Serve for brunch with a side salad to balance the sweet and savoury! Serves 4-6
Offering: $20 per Goddess (50% of the proceeds will be donated to support my father’s 100% natural treatment plan to fight against throat and tongue cancer. A donation box will also be available at the event!)
Please come adorned as the Goddess you are in a dress, skirt or flowy pants and your favourite jewellery!
Please bring a yoga mat, cushion to sit on, a candle with a plate to go under it, an open mind, and if you like, an item for the co-created altar.
Gather in sacred sisterhood, with a group of like minded women, for a magical evening celebrating the Gemini Full Moon.
Gemini is all about communication. The theme for our sacred gathering will be Speaking our Truth and Reclaiming our Voice. Through dance, sacred movement, yoga, song, self inquiry, sisterhood sharing, affirmation and ritual, we will harmonise, open, clear, release and activate our throat chakra.
A balanced throat chakra allows us to speak with more ease, grace and confidence whether this be to share our needs with others, to set boundaries, to express feelings and emotions, to show up with integrity or to be heard. It also improves our ability to listen to loved ones.
We will call upon the Goddesses of Healing, Release and Restoration to catalyse transformation so that we may reclaim the power of our voice. As we heal and restore our own unique voice and frequency, we create healing for our entire linage – past and present.
A delicious Superfood Cacao Bliss Ball offering will guide us to soften, open our heart centre and activate all our feel good-happy hormones!
I look forward to reconnecting with each and every one of you sisters for another transformative evening under the full moon! It is an absolute pleasure, honour and joy. This gathering is dedicated and consecrated to the healing of my Father. May our individual healing work ripple into our families, communities, the collective conscious and the planet!

“I can hear the calling. It is so clear, and so beautiful. I am here to serve, and Spirit is continuously guiding me to bring women together in sacred circle, this time in a more global way. From the depths of my heart, I want to share the powerful and transformative practices that have been passed down and revealed to me which have brought me back to who I truly am – love, freedom, abundance, stillness and infinite bliss. It is my heart’s desire for as many women as possible to experience the beauty of this process of Self (re)Discovery and remembrance; to come back into harmony and balance with mother nature, her cycles and our highest Self.
