You have been longing for a reconnection with real magic… To spend time immersed in nature’s healing energy and laughing around a crackling fire with friends old and new.
Life has been F-U-L-L O-N lately, and your body and spirit feel tired and depleted from the push to GO, CREATE, SERVE. Even though you are—by many accounts—living with alignment and purpose as you facilitate healing and transformation for others…
Your depletion goes deeper than the demands of daily life.
There is an ache and longing deep within you for something that feels far away; an echo of ancestral memory tickling the edges of your consciousness.
You know there’s a level of support and renewal that’s only available from being held, not just in sisterhood, but by the lands themselves—lands that are connected to people who came long before you, before they were colonized… Before their magic and medicine were stripped away.
Come play at the edge of time…
On the Spring Equinox—after a journey through the Scottish highlands and a mystical night in the forests of Inverness—an intimate group of women will walk onto the windblown and wild shores of the outer Hebrides islands off the Western coast of Scotland.
For 6 days and 6 nights, we will howl at the moon, sing the songs of our souls, feel the Earth pressing Her spring desires into the bottoms of our feet, and sip broth late into the night by a crackling fire.
We will restore our bodies, receive support and love from the Ancestor realm, and ready ourselves to spring forth into life and purpose with renewed gratitude, clarity, and lightness.
Meet Your Guides
Lola L’Amour has been leading transformational retreats around the world for over 10 years. She believes humans were designed to create and steward beauty in this world, but we have lost our way and forgotten how to live Life As Art… Her work is held with reverence and irreverence, and brings about nothing less than a total life shift.
As an experienced ceremonialist of Nordic, Celtic, and Saxon descent, she channels devotional song, story, and rhythm to activate your inner light. Lola is a fiery catalyst, a sacred space designer, a healing priestess, a lover of life, a wife + mother, and a champion of the wild feminine.
She is also the founder of Anima Mystery School, author of the sold-out Wild Messengers Tarot, and will be releasing a new podcast (her 4th!) in 2024.
Lola brings an energy of relentless joy and freedom of expression. She is excited to bring this journey on her ancestral and lands to life in partnership with her longtime friend and a trained member of her priestess lineage, Ginny Muir.
Joining us from the wild mountains of Boulder, Colorado, Ginny Muir guides courageous humans to transmute shadow into power. She walks the path of seer, truth teller, and alchemist; never shying away from taking a dose of her own medicine.
Her playful-yet-deep, spacious presence encourages others to let down their guards and touch into the tender places that most need tending.
Ginny is a carrier of the Anima Priestess Lineage and descends from Breton, Germanic, Gallic, and Celtic peoples. When she is not facilitating transformational experiences, you’ll find her rambling rocky ridges with her pup Rusty, cackling around a table of fellow witches, or immersing herself into that which makes her soul come alive.
“Although I’ve had the pleasure to receive guidance from Lola in the past, arriving at her retreat space was the first time I felt her magic in the flesh, and I am not exaggerating when I say the experience she created was life-altering.
Lola is so authentic in her words and actions that I was immediately at ease in her presence, and every aspect of the retreat was lovingly planned, from our cozy shelter and healing spaces to the delightful and nourishing meals. She effortlessly owned her power as our leader while remaining on our level to keep us safe every step of the way, and her true gift as a healer was evident in every breath, song, and touch that moved through her during our circle work.
The space Lola held allowed us all to embark upon a journey that had us opening, shifting, and releasing in ways we never could have imagined, and I left the experience with a full body knowing of truths I had only glimpsed before – a knowing I trust has been imprinted on my soul.”
“Ginny, I’m not sure I have the words to thank you enough for this weekend, but I’m going to try.
Thank you for your fierce love and protection in the depths of darkness. Thank you for bringing me to the strength I needed to face my most hidden fears. Thank you for never leaving, never wavering, never hesitating to hold space and be completely present. Thank you for seeing who I am through the facade and pushing me to find that truth. Thank you for sharing your gift and your light. I’m in my body for the first time since I fractured and left it.
It is the single greatest gift anyone has ever given me, a return to myself in such a full and present way. My soul knew that I needed the medicine that you bring to the world, and I am so very grateful.“
