Resilience Retreat:

A Global Online Conference for Spiritual Women Leaders and Healers

Saturday, March 6

Noon-5pm ET/9am-2pm PT

As a spiritually-oriented woman…

  • Are you ready for more juice, vibrancy, and connection?

  • Do you love spending time with other women & healers who are committed to creating a world in line with feminine values? 

  • Do you want to nurture your resilience and well-being, guided by a group of powerful teachers?

As women we are leaders and tenders in our community, caring for the social ties that seem so frayed right now. 

Even more, many of us are Yoga teachers, holistic health practitioners, non-profit leaders, meditation teachers, or otherwise engaged in creating a better world. Where is that world, and when is it coming, we wonder? 

This year has been hard in so many ways. As mothers, grandmothers, sisters, daughters, aunties, and just as spiritual WOMEN… it’s time for a little radical self-care.

It’s time for a retreat, and that’s what this day is all about. 

Divine Feminine Yoga’s Resilience Retreat will bring you:

Inspiring practices to heal, balance, and reconnect our world.

Intimate, small group breakouts to meet other women lightworkers.

Delicious movement, rest, and deep self-nourishment.

A place to share your vision for peace, health, and vitality in 2021!

Here’s What You Can Expect At this Global Online Conference for Feminine Leaders & Healers:

  • Why you should lean into the mystery of midlife and menopause to reclaim the most potent time of your life

    Cindi Buenzli Gertz has been practicing and teaching Yoga since 2000. She combines her background in Yoga with her passions for the Earth, organic gardening, holistic living, dream insight, and the arts. All of these were powerful aides in her own healing journey through birthing, mothering, chronic illness, and perimenopause, which she transversed with grace, ease, and balance. She shares her intuitive gifts and a vast variety of yoga practices in her signature “Vibrant Woman” program.

    Balance, Boundaries & Belonging: A Path to Soul-Satisfying Connection

    With Maureen Murphy, May Day Resilience Coach, and creator of Soul Spark Women’s Connecting Circles.

    • Enjoy playful exercises to build new neural pathways that help you balance nourishing solitude with the needs, responsibilities, and desires of a busy life
    • Boost your resilience to the winds of change as you move beyond “either/or” thinking and get comfortable with the opportunities (and inherent complexities!) of transformation
    • Turn your longing for connection into soul-satisfying relationships with yourself, other women, and the divine presence in all life

    Dr. Maureen Murphy guides extraordinary women to connect wholeheartedly with their Divine passions and purpose, so that they evolve and flourish in all areas of life and work. A chiropractor and resilience coach with over 29 years clinical experience, Maureen has seen first-hand how misalignment with our true selves robs us of vitality. Her resilience programs empower women to bypass exhaustion, overwhelm, and burnout, instead enjoying profoundly positive transformation in health, relationships and finances.

    • Three keys to transform traumatic, overwhelmingly-painful experiences into growth-producing opportunities

    • What it’s actually like to live in rural, conservative America, and the hidden needs and challenges you may know little about. (Get ready to grow your empathy muscle!)

    Angie Merritt has a Masters degree in Vocational Rehabilitation Counseling. She worked for 25 years in Career Counseling, Disabled Education, and ESL before becoming a Yoga teacher. When she first began teaching Yoga her pastor told her to stop, saying that Yoga promoted Hinduism. She persisted however, and now happily teaches seniors & youth through senior centers, schools, churches, gyms, and at the park. She is the Co-Founder of Food Cures U and the Founder of Joyful Vitality Yoga. Her spiritual name is Mata Devi Jaya, meaning Victorious Mother Goddess.

    Kind Words About Previous Divine Feminine Yoga Online Conferences…

    “Goddess bless you for bringing tears to my eyes and solace to my aching feminine soul. Yoga has been my touchstone for 25 years now, but your conference showed me the piece that has been missing. Now I have validation and strength to really teach my truth. The words of so many wise women in such a condensed time has woken me up. I want to be heard, to be successful, …. As the goddess is, so am I herself!” Kate Bendell, New Zealand

    More Kind Words About Previous Conferences…

    “I feel very grateful to you and all the Yoginis who presented at the conference, which was full of revelations for me. Something has shifted already in my practice. I am allowing myself to really listen to my body and follow its subtle voice instead of doing what I think I should do. It was such a relief to hear that we as women need time to unplug, to rest. I don’t need to feel guilty about it anymore.” Evelyn Kaeser, Selat, Indonesia
