Today, we bid farewell to the @wildfire_bc_magazine crew, while the house will feel empty, we will feel both abundance and loss.

Your openness, knowledge & laughter will echo through our thoughts. I, @octigan will take myself back to our collective writing practices with joy and miss sharing and therefore experiencing the many differing perspectives.

@i_heart_my_life 🙏 for bringing together such a beautiful team of women together, for being such a wonderful conduit for connection and healing.

@angelafirman11 wow, your honesty and humour have been so inspiring. Please write that book, though I will want to listen to the audiobook so that the delivery is yours. ❤️

@emilypiercell , such gentle wisdom and understanding, it was an honour to share all things 🇮🇹 with you. connecting the emotional and physical aspects of breast cancer is a world close to my ❤️ you do it beautifully

@aga_lesiewicz 🙏 for your desire to bring this all together, I feel this is just the beginning of connecting the dots of a future unknown.

6 women, 6 different experiences, a clear understanding that no two stories are the same, that every perspective is valid and needs space and holding.

Our retreats are always a blend of nurturing time, creative time and then exploring time.

Yesterday, after our creative writing workshop, we hit the road to immerse our guests in some hidden local gems.

We tasted cheese, bought wine and drank with the locals.

What would you do with a week of me time?
