Women’s Healing Retreat in Kangaroo Valley

Massage & Shiatsu Therapy School & Clinic
February 5, 2018

6-8 March 2020

Entering the Field of Honor is a place where we step into a strong, centered, authentic place within ourselves where everything is expected of you. Here you will need to be vigilant with your principles, sacrifices will be demanded, and you will often feel alone and even judged. If you make mistakes, you must account for them, sometimes you might have to cast aside your impulses and take a higher stance, than another person who is without honor might take. Such instances might hurt, which is why honor is a painful field. However, you are not alone in this bold adventure. During this workshop you will find the support, encouragement and resources to prepare you to be that peaceful warrior in the Field of Honor.

During this weekend retreat we will explore this philosophy and all its possibilities, through meditation and reflection, through psychodramatic enactments and creative processes. Something magical happens when like-minded women come together to share life experiences, empower each other’s motivations and provide the needed back -up and support through the challenges we each face and encounter. Now more than ever we need the enrichment of community that gives us the stamina and spirit to illuminate our path with dignity and integrity.
