Mother’s Legacy A Healing and Self-Discovery Retreat


“Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.” –Lucille Ball

Join best-selling authors, teachers, and lifelong friends, Lauren Walker and Hilary Crowley, on Mother's Day weekend for a workshop to expressly meet your own needs, offer yourself care, and attend to your personal healing. 

Through Energy Medicine Yoga, journaling, intuitive practices, talking circles, and more, you will:

  • Gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your family history. 
  • Reject the things that no longer serve you.
  • Find joy in yourself and your relationships.
  • Feel the peace of acceptance.

Working with the energies of self-love, the Earth element, and the feminine and masculine archetypes, Lauren and Hilary will help you identify the wounds that prevent you from feeling safe, supported, and whole. Return home with powerful tools to be able to move difficult energies out of your body, mind, and spirit—and a template to continue making whole what has been fractured for centuries.

We invite daughters of mothers, sons of mothers, mothers of humans, and animals, and plants as well as those who’d like to heal themselves or help heal their lineage to join us in this powerful weekend of exploration. 

Special Saturday Evening Session

Supporting the Healing Process Gently through Protection, Nourishment, and Discernment / May 11 (7:30–9:00 pm)
Dr. Heather Tallman Ruhm will give a scientific and physiologic framework for the spirit of healing. Through her integrative lens, she will show how we can work with the inherent discernment and power of our bodies to achieve better health. She will also emphasize the role of the body to protect and nourish us—the true gift of our lineage that we each share—and discuss the natural pathways of removing pathogenic stressors, both physical and emotional, from our bodies as well as practical resources to support healing.
