This is beyond a simple backpacking trip. It is truly an inspired divine experience. Stephanie is a Yogini, an author and an outdoor enthusiast. Her energy and enthusiasm to bring women of diverse backgrounds to experience the enchanting wilderness and an inner transformation with the help of Goddess teachings and Yoga is very special. I feel fortunate to be part of this very unique experience. This was my second backpacking trip with Stephanie exploring the inner self and the outdoors in the North Cascades National Park. On our first trip we explored Thundercreek trail and studied Goddesses Lakshmi, Saraswati and Matangi. This year we explored Mount Baker Wilderness with the Goddesses Bhuvaneswari, Durga and Parvati. The energies invoked with the Goddess work and Yoga were in perfect harmony with the nature outside. Personally it allows me to check in with myself and be inspired on my life journey. It is indeed such a blessing that Stephanie is able to bring all her unique talents in such a perfect offering.... With much gratitude.
Such an enriching and energizing retreat. We were surrounded by stunning panoramic views of jagged mountains and lush green valleys. I developed new friendships with a wonderful community of women. The retreat was well organized and Stephanie was extremely knowledgeable about the area and backcountry backpacking and camping and was always willing to help any of us who had questions about gear, set up, etc. The North Cascades National Park is a gorgeous area to learn about and invoke the divine feminine. I would definitely recommend this retreat to others looking to deepen their spirituality, yoga practice and commune with nature.
The trip was amazing. The people were wonderful, Stephanie was an amazing leader, the views were incredible and the backpacking was really fun. Our campsites were gorgeous. I had the best time.
