A backcountry retreat for adventurous women on a remote beach in northern vancouver island.

Have you always wanted to explore north island but don't have anyone to go with? Do you have a deep connection to the land that you can't quite put into words, but are searching for ways to revere this connection? Are you craving an intimate sisterhood of adventurous women who uplift you?

From the woman behind Sisterhood by the Sea...

I created Sisterhood by the Sea for the women who have been bullied by a group of girls or betrayed by a female friend which caused them to put walls up around their heart. Because that's what happened to me. I kept myself at arms distance because it was easier to exclude myself than it was to be rejected after opening my heart and being vulnerable. I joined a women's group with the intention to heal my sisterhood wound. My biggest fear going in was that no one would like me, the girls would gossip about me behind my back, and ultimately I would be rejected from the group. And that's exactly what happened! I had to break the cycle of closing my heart whenever I got hurt. I had to learn to keep my heart open to other women so that when intimate female friendship presented itself to me I was open to receive it. And that's exactly what I created Sisterhood by the Sea to do. To tear down the walls you've built around your heart and open your heart to intimate female friendship while having the adventure of a lifetime.

About our unconventional methods...

Sisterhood by the Sea is a 3-day backcountry yoga + hiking retreat to heal your sisterhood wound. When you pray to the Universe for intimate female friendship, the Universe doesn't just snap its fingers and give it to you. No, it tests you. Either by presenting you with exactly what you don't want to see if you're ready to break that cycle. Or by presenting you with exactly what you want to see if you are willing to receive exactly what you've been asking for.

Am I fit enough?

You will need to be able to hike in and out of camp carrying your pack with all your camping gear. The hike in takes approx 45-60 minutes. Is relatively flat, although often muddy, and very rooty. 

What do I need to bring?

You will need to bring all your own camping equipment. ie: tent, sleeping bag, sleeping pad, etc. We have compiled a suggested gear list to ensure your comfort during the retreat. Click here to see it.

I'm scared that no one will like me...

It is going to feel scary and nerve-wracking the first time meeting the women. And those women on retreat will be feeling the exact same way. What if you meet your best friend soulmate on this retreat? What if everyone loves and adores you?

When does it start and what is the cost?

The retreat dates are August 23-25 2024. The retreat cost is $525 per person and yes we have payment plans available.
