The Medicine Process

This is our seven-day signature retreat program that we have journeyed with hundreds of women and men since we launched in 2016. Being witness to their experiences has only reinstated the power of this work, and we can confidently say this process has the ability to change your life.

Merging psychological, spiritual and somatic work, we facilitate an inward journey to meet your shadow self, teaching you how to alchemize your pain and return to the vibration of love.

Culturally we live in an epidemic of inner and outer suffering, experiencing addiction, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, burn out, etc. All of which can be traced back to the same root cause: unhealed trauma.

Trauma comes in all shapes and sizes. And it’s impossible that any single human can avoid it. It can look like experiencing your parents’ divorce at a young age, being bullied in school, being sexually abused, to not having your basic needs met as a child. Trauma is imprinted when we are unable to fully integrate an uncontrollable event or experience, and so our body automatically responds to protect it. However, this protective armour serves us up until a certain point in our lives.

Something eventually triggers this unhealed wound, spinning us into darkness and suffering, or what we often call a crisis. This is in-fact our greatest blessing, for it is the very catalyst that inspires a path of truth seeking. It’s our hearts way of saying it’s ready to de-armour, and to finally heal.

Jas, 35.

I came here three years ago when I was in a very different place in my life. It was then one of the most powerful things I’ve done to set me on a very beautiful path. I felt to come back again this year and now in a new phase in my life, I didn’t know if I could achieve the same kind of contentment from the teachings. A few days in and I realized I can and I will. Stephanie is one of the greatest gifts to anyone who is in need of guidance. I’m so very grateful that she provides a very safe, trusted space for so many people. There’s very few people who can give such gentle but effective guidance to a group of very individual, individuals. Again Stephanie, thank you for putting me back on my path of great happiness and gratitude. The journey starts here!
