EMERGENCE: A 6 week Journey and Transformation Course for Women


It’s time.

Rise and step into your fullest expression

“I can hear the calling. It is so clear, and so beautiful. My dharma, or purpose, is service, and in this moment, Spirit is guiding me to bring together the Women of the North. It is time to let go, surrender, be empowered, learn and share our gifts. From the depths of my heart, I want to share the powerful and transformative practices that have been passed down and revealed to me and play such an important role in my personal growth. I want as many women as possible to also experience the beauty of this process of Self (re)Discovery. These ancient techniques and practices provide us with the tools to live this life as the women and goddesses we are..with strong and healthy bodies: physically, mentally, emotionally, energetically and spiritually.”  ~ Lacey Budge

This is a time for women of all ages to unite and to reconnect with the wisdom and power that dwells within. For women who are ready to let go of who they think they are supposed to be, and step into the most authentic, loving, free, truth seeking version of themselves.

As our ancestors did, it is time we gather to learn and share the ancient traditions that women have been practicing for thousands of years in honour of a balanced and vital physical, mental, emotional and spiritual body.

General Overview

Each week will be an opportunity to gather in the community of sisterhood, learn ancient wisdom through experiential ‘workshops’ and practices, to share personal reflections, to let go of the masks and shed the layers we still feel the need to wear in our daily lives.

Over the six week period, you will be invited to emerge, transform, be vulnerable, find courage, surrender, soften, connect with your highest self, step into the magic of the mystery.

Through movement, breath, music, yoga, meditation, song, dance, ceremony, celebration, joy, tears, ritual, journaling, and creating, we will express and rediscover what it means to be a woman in the 21st century. The sacred and safe environment we will create will encourage us to open up and release that which no longer serves our Highest Purpose. What are your gifts? How do you want to live an embodied life and share your talents with the world?


Sage Purification at Farm of Life, Costa Rica

Become introduced to physical, energetic and breathing practices specifically for women to reawaken your sensuality and sexual chi (energy), bring balance to your hormones and reproductive organs, create a sacred relationship with your monthly moon cycle (even if you are no longer bleeding), promote breast and cervical health, as well as teachings on the Jade Egg.

What does it mean for you to emerge? To rise from what is holding you down; to come forth into who you are meant to be; to release a mask that no longer fits you; to blossom into that butterfly?

Plus!!!! We will unite and come together in honour of both the new moon and the full moon to celebrate! Experience the heart opening beauty of an authentic cacao ceremony with ecstatic dance as well as a magical night dedicated to awakening our senses!

Commit to you and to this beautiful process!

Be a part of a supportive, loving sisterhood…a powerful movement and inner revolution
