Women's Visioning Ritual
Women of Power Empowering You
Two days of Visioning
with Evalena Rose and
percussionist and activist, Afia Walking Tree
A powerful gathering of women envisioning
our goals & and evolving our businesses and lives.
Lending our combined prowess to the fulfillment of dreams
has proven to bring success.
Sunday's plan is mostly new, with richness
added by collaborating with Afia.
The enchanting rituals of Saturday are augmented by Sunday's
tools to ground your goals in reality. You learn practical
skills to goal tend, determine priorities, develop action
plans, and stay on track. Afia guides community drumming,
grief and forgiveness rituals and we complete with each
woman receiving healing from a group of sisters.
"A fabulous way to bring vision to the year ahead,
empowering both concrete goals and action plans."

Inspiring! Delightful! Empowering!
Our first day of ritual creates a safe & sacred space
- Explore with our Future Self how to create our brightest future.
- Dive deep to discover what blocks treasured goals from coming true.
- Drum & chant as each woman releases her blocks to the fire as we witness her dance of release.
- Share the pleasures of creating a colorful collage to symbolize your goals. (tons of images already cut out for you.) Or write or draw them.
- Experience the depth and awe of a circle in which peers and colleagues witness each woman breathing life & power into her fondest visions.
- Co-create magic for ourselves and for the planet in sacred celebration.
"A huge space opened up for me in this weekend.
Nourishing to my soul , it helped restore a sense
of hope about my life."
"These women were the most self loving, aware, spiritual, evolved women I have ever seen. Strong, powerful,
loving, kind, open to being, learning and receiving. So much Joy and beauty!!!!"
Many return year after year, telling us the miracles of goals
being realized in their lives. Some laminate their goals and
post them to bring the visions into every day.
What to expect at the Saturday ritual:
We dive into the shadowlands to see what blocks or sabotages our goals, connecting with sub-parts and saboteurs within. We write what we find and, as this powerful circle of women drums and chants, we each do a dance of release, letting go of all that no longer serves into the fire. Dramatically releasing what stands in the way of success helps to shift sub-conscious patterns. Having a master drummer like Afia WalkingTree means the drumming is choreographed to each woman’s dance – quite amazing!
We delve into the deeper purpose of our lives, and invoke our future self to reveal how it is to have what we truly desire and to guide us in getting there.
have never been to a workshop that flowed
as easily or satisfied me as deeply."
We set about the work of identifying goals in 9 areas of our lives with words, images, color, and symbols -- what a joy to creatively out-picture our desires by playing with a myriad of art supplies and the tons of collage images already cut out for you!
We dance the goals into our bodies, really calling them into being. Saturday evening is an empowerment circle for each woman to receive the attention and support of her peers and colleagues as we lovingly witness her breathing life into her fondest visions.
10:30 AM - 5:30 PM
Moving Visions Into Reality
Building on Saturday's goals, Sunday focuses on:
- Creating pathways to accomplish goals through the use of mind maps and flow charts.
- Releasing old patterns and fears of success.
This day deepens our commitment
to letting our goals guide our actions.
- Energizing new ways of being as you enjoy compassionate support of this powerful circle of women affirming your new steps with you.
of what to expect at the Sunday ritual:
have extensive time in focus groups, each helping individuals
work out knotty problems of projects, or think through steps
needed to develop business, ways to promote, etc.
study time management and organizational tools to help
build the goals into your work and life, so they arrive
in your calendar and daily routines. Afia will lead more community drumming, dancing, and ritual of forgiveness. Sunday concludes with receiving healing from a circle of sisters – so sweet! It
promises to be a stellar weekend!
wonderful day in a sacred setting with skillfully facilitated
exercises to open to one's truest voice. Filled with exploration,
discovery, nurturing, and RESULTS!"
"The second day made the whole experience richer because
we'd developed affinity and safety as a group, and used
so many different ways from serious to silly and playful
to make a commitment to our dreams."
