Workshops + Retreats

I offer a variety of soul-filled day-long Workshops and week-long Retreats designed to nurture your body, feed your soul, and transform your personal and professional life beyond your wildest dreams.

 

Women’s Circle 

Open to all women seeking to access and explore the archetypal Inner Feminine. In circle we are able to connect with ourselves and others at the deepest levels — so we can be truly nourished and healed in all aspects of our lives. When women gather in circle, they step into the field of immense possibility. Magic happens. Healing occurs.

 

Professional Training

Includes cutting-edge teachings to take your work to a whole new level, geared to advanced and beginning practitioners in the eating/exercise/body image field. These intellectual infusions, combined with a direct connection to the deep Feminine, allow you to return to your practice with renewed vitality and techniques and approaches to use one-on-one or in groups.

Nothing in life is sweeter than nourishing your Soul…

Soul Hunger

In our culture today, what are women truly hungry for?

How can women support one another in overcoming the self-image issues that so many of us face?

How can women empower themselves to find the spiritual strength they so desire?

To answer these questions and more, join us at the Soul Hunger Workshop with Anita Johnston, PhD. Through her passionate, energetic story-telling of myths and metaphors from around the world, Anita explores the archetypal energies of the woman’s soul while guiding us on a spiritual journey to learn how these energies relate to us personally. Anita teaches that women struggling with food, eating and body image issues are actually experiencing a deeper longing inside, one to which the world’s vast history of Sacred Feminine myths and metaphors holds the key.

Soul Union

This workshop will help women to balance the Masculine and Feminine energies within…

In this powerful one day workshop, Anita will explore how to balance and unite the inner Masculine and Feminine. We will explore the differences and aspects of both, and “The Inner Marriage”; the union between the Feminine and Masculine energies that are within us — regardless of gender.

We will see that when in an ideal balance, these two energies complement each other like a perfect marriage. They support and honor each other so we can live from our Soul, having a full and deep life. Here, you know the truth of who you are, and are able to carry forth your passion into the world.

Feminine Soul Cycles

What are the Four Faces of the Sacred Feminine?

They are archetypes that correspond to four significant phases in a woman’s life (maiden, mother, queen, crone) and also correspond to the four seasons of the year (spring, summer, fall, winter), four cycles of the moon (waxing, full, waning, dark), four directions (east, south, west, north), four times of day (dawn, noon, dusk, midnight) and four elements (air, fire, water, earth). These archetypal energies are available to the conscious woman for personal growth and healing — regardless of her chronological age.

In this powerful one-day workshop, Anita will teach us how to consciously and deliberately access four primary aspects of the Sacred Feminine and bring them into our lives.
