Event description


I’m pleased to announce that there are only a handful of spots left in our upcoming transformative retreat on Salt Spring Island!

Please join us June 28th-30th at Sacred Mountain Lavender Farm for an immersive weekend of sacred astrology, storytelling, myth, magick, guided meditation, ritual, creative exploration and more.

This retreat is open to all women, catered with vegetarian meals (locally sourced and organic wherever possible) in one of the most beautiful and enchanted settings imaginable, at a time of year when the lavender fields will be in their full glory. Please take a moment to check out the incredible location we’ll be gathering at, it truly is a place between the worlds! https://sacredmountainlavender.com/

There is limited space for the full package, which includes shared accommodation and meals, so please book early to avoid disappointment, as these spots will sell out quickly. If you live on Salt Spring, or have alternative accommodation on the island, there are also some non-residential spots available.

Full Retreat Package:

Two nights shared accommodation on beautiful Sacred Mountain Lavender Farm (all bedding, towels etc, provided) and meals (welcome snacks Friday evening, breakfast, lunch and dinner on Saturday and breakfast Sunday morning).


Workshops including all meals (for those staying off site)


***Please note that this is a long weekend in Canada, and our little island will be hopping! If you are coming from Vancouver, you are strongly advised to reserve your ferry or seaplane as soon as possible. Also, if you are coming from off island and staying off site, please remember to book your accommodations (including camping) as early as possible.

Astrology 101

Deepen your understanding of astrology by delving into the basics as we ground ourselves in the holistic perspective of Sacred Astrology – the connection of astrology with the changing seasons and the wheel of the year. You will learn to understand your own birth chart better than ever before. Please bring your birth chart. If you do not already have your chart, email me at danielleblackwood@gmail.com

“Astrology is a symbolic language of energy, and when we realize how its patterns are so artfully aligned with the turning of the seasons and the rhythms of the earth, it becomes an evocative vocabulary that can empower us to find our own sacred connection to the immanent divinity in nature and ourselves.”

– Twelve Faces of the Goddess

Please note: While it’s not mandatory, participants are encouraged to read my book, The Twelve Faces of the Goddess: Transform Your Life With Astrology, Magick, and the Sacred Feminine, as material from the book will be referenced throughout the weekend. Available everywhere, including most libraries.

The Heroine's Journey: Discover the Guiding Goddesses in Your Birth Chart

Every birth chart is unique and will resonate with specific mythic and archetypal energies of the sacred feminine from every culture. Connecting with your guiding goddesses will reignite a sense of mystery in your life, help you reframe challenges and live your life in a way that defines your soul purpose.

As you learn about the goddess(s) that arise in your birth chart, you may notice parallels in your own life, which will lead to a deeper and more profound understanding of the archetypal motifs unfolding on your path. In recognizing the mythological themes playing out in your story, you will be inspired to new levels of self awareness and personal empowerment, as well as gaining a renewed sense of realization that your life is a sacred journey, with you as the protagonist.

New Moon Mandala Ritual

Just two days after our retreat, there will be a potent New Moon and Solar Eclipse! New Moons are the time to plant new seeds and hit the cosmic reset button in a particular area of your life. Eclipses act like a supercharged New Moon. What is the most fertile ground that you can plant your new seeds of intention? Discover the specific life area that this New Moon will highlight for you personally. Our weekend together is the perfect time to work in ritual to release what no longer serves you, and to step into the flow to consiously engage with the energetics of this powerful New Moon/eclipse.

You will create a New Moon mandala that you will be able to take home and keep on your altar as a reminder of the magic you’ve created on this magical weekend. (Mandalas will be supplied – made of reclaimed wood and painted black. We will have art supplies on hand, but any extra art supplies are always welcome!)

Please join our closed facebook group for discussions, questions, helpful links, ride sharing and more details as we get closer to the date! Looking forward to seeing you!
