  • Channeled Transmissions
  • Ceremony & Devotional Practices

This is a small, intimate group retreat with a maximum of 9 women. Our purpose is to gather for deep Priestess work for our own healing, and in service to the collective. It is offered by invitation or application + interview only.

Our daily schedule

The exact daily itinerary will emerge based on the Sisters present.
However, the overarching structure will be as follows:

~ Breakfast on Your Own ~

Morning Session

  • Dance! We begin by getting out of our minds and into our bodies.
  • Ground, Center & Connect. A Short group meditation & sharing from the heart.
  • The Day’s Teaching.

Afternoon Session

  • Ceremonies, Activations & High Alchemy! Our evening sessions pull together the sharing and the teachings in the ancient way, through ceremonies to EMBODY our insights and intentions through Praxis (Praxis: “the process by which a theory, lesson, or skill is enacted, practiced, embodied, or realized.”)
*Please note that there will be plenty of time between sessions for you to integrate, relax, connect with the Earth with the other sisters present!

Is This For You…   

Please note that a key component of this experience is the restoration of our humanity as natural, connected, social and Divine beings.

You love making deep connections and sharing sacred space with other sisters.


You are comfortable in natural environments and are able to spend time in high desert and alpine country.

You are willing and able to both receive support and hold space for others.


You are willing to pitch in with meal preparations and clean-up.

We will be spending a LOT of time in nature, both alone and as a group. We will be walking on mostly flat but sometimes hilly landscapes, mostly off-road, and off of any designated trails. We will also be sharing close space (emotionally and physically), including holding hands, hugging, dancing and sweating in close proximity.

“When I think about the powerful women who have blessed my life, Dawn is at the top of the list. During a time when we worked together for the same company, Dawn quickly became the unofficial mentor to many of us, as her compassionate nature, paired with her wisdom and broad spectrum of esoteric knowledge, is unparalleled.

I’m extremely grateful to have Dawn in my life and I know it is time for her to share her gifts with women around the world.”

Leanne Kallal, Co-Founder

Our Location

Our location is a beautifully restored farmhouse as well as my personal home & Temple space amidst the vast, Gila National Forest of Southwest New Mexico. We are at 6,000 ft. elevation with a warm-to-hot, sunny and dry climate.

Our gathering places include: the forest itself, outdoors on my personal property with shaded areas for meals, an outdoor ceremonial space and fire circle, the living and dining spaces at the Farmhouse, and my 16’ hand-made, Mongolian Yurt, the “Temple of the Mothers.”

The Temple itself is an eco-friendly sanctuary for meditative, quiet & environmentally honoring gatherings.

Arrival & Departure

Please aim to arrive between 4-5pm on August 23rd. Our Opening Ceremony begins at 5:30pm, followed by dinner.

Our Closing Ceremony will be co-created and held on the evening of August 27th.

NOTE: If you would like to arrange a 1:1 VIP add-on with me, please let me know. It would be a joy to go deeper with you through an astrological deep-dive, customized ceremonial work and more of this beautiful forest!

“You will always be the one in my life who taught me tarot and initiated me into the lexicon of the goddess … you had a great way of addressing things so directly and bluntly and yet with compassion … those times set a solid foundation for my spirituality.
Alia Munn, performing artist, playwright and mom of 2 sons

“Dawn has a technique of listening to others interests, then pulling out certain details from what she hears, building upon them with her own knowledge and experience, providing information that creates a ! and ? to go off in their head, helping them to realize these may be passions that need to be explored.”
Celeste Parrins, Business and Marketing Consultant

“Dawn has a very thorough and accurate approach of going through the individual steps of an intervention and gave me great space and support to walk through it in my own time. I felt much relief after our session and experience more ease in my life now when it comes to structuring my work load and balancing myself. Thank you Dawn for your outstanding guidance!”
Helene Weiss – Mindset Coach

“You inspired me to be a strong woman, to be feminine yet fierce. I always admired that you were both physical and very knowledgeable … I always left your class feeling inspired to be a better person.”
Jennana Johnson, former professional muaythai fighter and mom of 4

Listen to other women’s experience of being on retreat with Dawn…



I have been studying Goddess lore, facilitating ceremony, offering intuitive guidance, spiritual counsel, tarot & astrology readings for 39 years. My Initiation as a Priestess was in 1986 with my first Dianic Coven, Mother Spirit. My second initiation – or RE-Dedication – came in January, 2017 when I could no longer ignore my truth and my Sacred Calling as a Mentor and Guide for the next generation of feminine leaders.

I am also an Ordained Priestess of the Goddess with the Global Goddess Church and Ordained Minister with the Universal Life Church.

My “Official” Cred

I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Women’s Studies and Feminist Literary Criticism, and a Master’s Degree in Shamanic Intuitional Practices. I’m also a professionally certified Neurolinguistic Life Coach, Clinical Hypnotherapist, DreamSculpting® Practitioner and Timeline Trauma Release Coach.

If you know me personally, you also know that I have been a business mentor & marketing consultant for 10 years, a professional writer for more than 18 years, and am the #1 Amazon Best-Selling Author of the book, Spirit, Mind & Money.

How I Work with Women

Today I bring all of these transformational tools together in order to assist women in healing, clearing and actualising their Sacred Leadership potential. I do this through retreats, online group mentorship and 1:1 coaching.
