Aligned. Knowing. Full Bloom Radiance. Clear. Shining. Grounded.

These qualities all exist within us, yet for so many women, we feel depleted + defeated, attention being pulled in many different directions, with a low-grade fever of constant overwhelm.

We may feel racked with guilt, shame, and comparison, constantly feeling we don't 'measure up'.

This is a wake up call-- the time for the Nourished Woman is now.

This is an invitation to gently awaken and rise out of this trance, through connecting with other women in a conscious and loving way, through touch, our own wild uninhibited expression, grieving and celebration, we can find a way back to our True Nature, our instinct and move in the world in this new empowered way.

If you are ready to really receive the self- care you deserve and feel open to connecting in vulnerability with other sisters, then come. I invite you to the 4th annual Nourished Woman retreat: The Embodied Goddess, held on the unceded territories of the Coast Salish Peoples on these sacred lands of Sunshine Coast BC at our stunning retreat center.

We are blessed to practice and play here.

This is a rare opportunity to connect back to your inner guidance system, connect deeper to your body, to Nature, to other sisters, and sacred food nourishment in a pristine backdrop of old growth forest and pacific ocean waters. The time of the Nourished Woman is now.


Our retreat is happening on the stunning Sunshine Coast at Half Moon Haven retreat center on May 26 ~ 28, 2023. Only 40 min ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal, and an additional 40 min drive to the site.

This is where we had our first retreat ever back in 2019-- here is the professional retreat video we made for you:

Check out the stunning retreat location with ocean side views, a temple yurt, hot tub, full spa on site and perched on sacred indigenous lands. Many plant medicine retreats have taken place here as well as other incredible healing events-- it is a super charged land with high healing frequency.

"The Awakening Shakti Temple series was an initiation into womanhood for me– guided by unconditional love, sisterly love and most of all Abneet, who is the most embodied Goddess I know. You’d have to experience this loving, fierce and genuine presence for yourself to know what I’m talking about. Through Abneet’s support, the work of diving deep into the feminine psyche and healing ancestral wounds felt less like work and more like connection.

Not only was this work deeply meaningful to me, but I looked forward to hearing everyone’s shares and Abneet’s profound yet lighthearted and authentic teachings every week. If there is anything I Iearned from these seven weeks, it’s that presence is the most important thing we can cultivate and that there is absolutely nothing like the support of sisters and community.

Thank you for creating this space Abneet. All my love. "

~ Masha Scherbina

" I am feeling nourished, strengthened and empowered! Abneet has rocked my world the last 7 weeks! I feel plugged back into my power, my strength and deeply connected to my body. This work is stunning and Abneet’s facilitation is impeccable and masterful. Something undeniably powerful happens when women gather and Abneet catalyzed this power - the result was a group of women who started off as strangers becoming dear friends.

Abneet created a safe and transformative space where we could each explore to the fullest our softness, our bodies, our sensuality, our rage, our love, our power… the result was deep healing and transformation.

At the end of this program I looked around the circle and beheld a room full of Queens. Each woman transformed, shining vibrantly, connected to herself, her worth, her power and her deeper knowings. It was undeniably beautiful.

Thank you Abneet. I’m so grateful to have found my way to you and this work. "

~Tatiana Speed ♥

" I had a powerful transformation over these past 7 weeks! I have previously signed up for other courses but wow this journey was incredible! The benefits from this program were SO worth the investment. I feel confident in my abilities and now hold a deeper connection to my body and inner wisdom that was missing before.

I always felt I had to hide and compromise with others, but Abneet taught me how to embrace and step into my full, radiant self.

I allowed myself to step out of my comfort zone & to be held and seen by my other temple sisters.

There's always something magical that happens when women come together like this, with a shared vision....

Abneet is so genuine, and has mastered the art of holding space.

Deepest gratitude to Abneet for facilitating and holding space for my transformation. I'm already signed up for Level 2! "

~ Harmeet Purewal

"The 7 week Awakening Shakti course facilitated by Abneet was an absolute gift, aligned completely with everything my heart yearned for.

Each week, with our Sister Circle was refreshing, soft and foundational. Coming together in Circle created a space of reverence & safety that catapulted me into deeper, more authentic self love and expression. Exploring deeper levels of what it is to be an embodied woman, alongside fellow women-- is true medicine.

I look forward to future circles with woman alike!

"Deeply Received"
