Your inner wild woman is your primal essence as a woman. She’s who holds your truth and your deeper story — your free spirit and your wild heart.

She’s passionate. Fiercely protective. Fearless. Magnetic. Alluring. Sensual and playful. Wildly loving. Fully-expressed. Enchanting. Creative. Spontaneous. Raw. Untamed. 

She’s the part of you who unapologetically wears all her colors, writes her own rules, sings her own songs, and speaks up loud and clear. She laughs boldly. Feels deeply. Knows her value. And is in total charge of her energies and creative life. She is the urge, the inspiration, the dream of all women to feel fully awake, deeply alive, and FREE from any imposed cage.

Essentially, she is your ability to fully and freely express yourself without fear or shame.

Do you let her run free?

ALL women, no matter how domesticated and tightly-reined their lives have become, are filled with this longing for the wild. 

Deep down, you feel it right now too. 

You crave more and KNOW you were meant for more. 

More love. Higher love. Unconditional, soul-dripping love. Higher sights. Bigger vision. Fuller expression. More pleasure. Complete inhibition. Realness. TRUTH. 

Deep down, you KNOW you are a powerful, gorgeous, and gifted woman designed to live a story that arouses and fulfills ALL of you. And, deep down, there is a part of you that’s also had enough. Who is tired of playing good girl. Who is tired of biting your tongue. Tired of waiting. Tired of hiding. Tired of accommodating. Tired of pretending you’re NOT brilliant. 

There is a part of you that wants to get real, get messy, and get radically honest with yourself, others, and life. There is a part of you that hears the call LOUD AND CLEAR to set your wild woman FREE.

Will you answer?

It’s time to stop pretending that you don’t know what you are meant for. It’s time to stop pretending that you don’t know what you want. You know. It birthed you. It’s breathes you. If you’re truly honest with yourself, you feel it in this very second. You know exactly what you were born for — it just terrifies you. You’re that incredible. 

But ask yourself:  

When was the last time suppressing your wild really worked? 

Truly — when was the last time that not going for it, not expressing how you feel, not being in love, not dancing, not creating, not connecting, not speaking up, not putting yourself out there and trying something new ever felt good?

The cost of ignoring the call of the wild any longer is simply too high. 

It means consciously choosing to design your life by life-sapping choices. Going for the less-risky, less-than options. It means choosing relationships that don’t value you. Work that doesn’t fulfill you. Conversations that drain you. And all sorts of other “shoulds” and lack-driven choices that leave you feeling chronically fatigued, powerless, and doubtful.

 It means a busy life full of commitments that leave you blocked, unaroused, and dry — without the inspiration, soulfulness, or meaning you yearn for. But, most importantly, it means continuing to live with the chronic weariness that NEVER goes away when we’re living SOMEONE ELSE’S story, by someone else’s rules.

Now is the time to write yourself into a NEW story. 

Your story. 

The one that excites you, enthralls you, honors you, and invigorates you head to toe. The one where you look around at your life and recognize YOURSELF and your immeasurable value in it. 

At the end of the day, YOU have the ability to silence ALL the fear, and doubt, and stories in your head with one simple question — no matter how “true” your small story feels:  

“Is this the story I want to tell with my life? Is this the legacy I intend to leave?"

If you desire to expand and uplevel the story you’re living, I’m leading a sacred women’s retreat this February where we will do just that.

It’s called the Rewild Retreat: A Sacred Journey of Awakening the Wild Woman Within — and I am just BRIMMING with excitement about it. 

It’s going to be the most stunning, rejuvenating journey, with a small group of soulful women just like yourself, in the most GORGEOUS retreat location I have hosted yet. Each day, you will wake up to breathtaking vistas in one of the most sacred places on earth and indulge a nourishing schedule of embodiment practices, sacred women’s circles, rejuvenating treatments, and healing immersion into nature. 

 During our time together, you will receive everything you need to reclaim the free, fulfilled, and fully-expressed woman you were born to be before society told you who you should be. And you will emerge from our time together awake, vibrant, WILDLY confident, fully YOURSELF, and READY to create and receive the life you are meant for.

If you’re ready to experience deeper aliveness, profound rejuvenation, and the sacred permission to step into your feminine brilliance, I hope to meet you in magical Lake Atitlan.

To your radiant wild,

Jessica

RETREAT LOCATION

LAKE ATITLAN, GUATEMALA

Deep in the Guatemalan highlands is a mystical village that has beckoned backpackers and spiritual seekers for decades: San Marcos La Laguna. The scenery is reason enough to visit: with its three active volcanoes, wild orchids, ancient Mayan communities, and Lake Atitlan — a collapsed volcanic cone filled with water 1,000 feet deep.

Considered one of the most beautiful and magnetic lakes in the world, local Mayans call Lake Atitlan “the bellybutton of the world” and believe it spans a powerful vortex of energy that has earned it’s place as one of the top 10 sacred places on earth. Mayan ceremonies still take place at various sites around the lake, from caves to the top of an adjacent hill. 

Lake Atitlan and the surrounding villages overlooking the lake are a winning combination of beautiful scenery, relaxing atmosphere, easily accessible Mayan culture and good tourist infrastructures. Known for its sacred and healing atmosphere, Lake Atitlan is the perfect spot to relax, retreat, and reconnect back to yourself.

THE YOGA FOREST

The Yoga Forest is a sacred sanctuary with ancient Mayan altars and natural springs that have been protected as a natural reserve in order to honor the land and the heritage of its people.

The Yoga Forest offers a unique retreat space within a tropical forest with amazing views, comfortable beds, delicious vegetarian meals, daily yoga and meditation, and holistic wellness offerings.

More than just a retreat center, The Yoga Forest shares a conscious business model integrating three pillars in a balanced practice of earth care, people care, and fair share. Through intercultural relationships of respect, the Yoga Forest weaves together local and global visions that inspire positive social and ecological impacts in the world.

TESTIMONIALS

"This was truly a transformational experience and I never say this! Through Jessica's teachings and thoughtfully-planned experiences, we were shown how to live as an edge-walker of life; to act from the heart and to live beautifully in the unknown. If you are seeking a deeper experience of life itself, travel with Jessica. It's the most profound thing I've ever done for myself."

— Shannon Kaza, India retreat participant.

Jessica's retreat changed my life because I learned how to be okay with always being myself and living in a way that expresses the truth deep within my heart. The daily yoga gave me a safe space to visit with myself and really allow what was already there to blossom. I can’t even express how valuable this time for me was and I would do it over and over again in a heartbeat."

Jenna Bingham. India, Bali, and Greek Island retreat participant.

"Before I started working with Jessica, I was lost in the stories that I was telling myself. In the societal, familial and cultural conditioning. I thought I knew myself, I thought I was living a vibrant life. But Jessica's teachings opened my heart to the capacity of ecstasy there is to experience in this life, simply by living in my fullest expression. The embodiment practices we explored were nothing short of transformational and life-changing — they showed me the way back to myself.

Jessica's programs are a profound experience for women who long to step fully into the brilliance of who they are unapologetically. I now feel fully prepared and excited to exist as my most authentic, magical and uninhibited wild woman. You know heart is longing for a deeply nourishing, exhilarating, and unorthodox journey like this, so take the leap!"

— Maeden Doan, Embodied Feminine Immersion graduate. 

"I was a woman who would spiral in her emotion and was hiding within the depths of herself, drowning. Through Jessica's program, I swam even deeper into myself than ever before, and learned how to swim gracefully within my emotions. Jessica is such an incredible role model and woman that holds space in a sacred and impactful way that will leave you feeling in awe of your own power and wonder. My life, my femininity, my understanding of the world around me, and my placement within it has completely changed. This transformative journey has set my entire life aflame unlike any other."

— Kanyn Doan, Embodied Feminine Immersion graduate. 

"I cannot express in words the love, transformation, and joy I found in Jessica’s guidance while in India. Traveling to India for me was a life-changing experience of exploring, expanding, and being open to the joy of all senses and all emotions. Jessica has a heart as big as the world and I'm so thankful for the teachings, love, and poetry she shared along the journey."

 Rebecca Ufkes, India retreat participant.

"I was so blown away at the richness of Jessica's retreat. It was amazing, illuminating, transformative, and was exactly what I needed. I'm so thankful to practice and study under Jessica — an incredibly brave and lovely soul!"
