TENDING THE WELL

a women's embodiment retreat

TAOS, NEW MEXICO  |  SEPTEMBER 11-15

A 5-day retreat experience
to replenish, inspire, and nurture your wild 

feminine essence

THE WELL HAS LONG BEEN A SYMBOL
of feminine nourishment

As an archetypal symbol, the well represents the life force and the vital energy that sustains all living beings. We come to the well to dance with depth and mystery and partake in rituals of renewal. When we gather at the well, we gather at the intersection of the Earthly and the Divine - the physical and spiritual worlds. The well of our bodies - the pelvis - and the well of the feminine - the goddess/ the mother/ the great womb.

 

In our modern world, most women are malnourished - suffering from malnutrition. Our hearts, bodies, and souls are parched.  Thirsty, hungry, oftentimes starving, for something MORE - for a connection to the well from which we can draw nourishment.

 

I want to explore the MORE with you. 

 

More wildness. More instinct. More touch. More breath. More fun. More dancing. More food. More love. More permission. More feminine essence. More yes. More love. More ritual. More joy. More presence.  More exploration. More pleasure. More remembering. More space. More listening. More song. More power. More of YOU colliding with more of WE.

Most women tell me there is something that feels ancient in these retreats. How the rituals and the songs and the way we hold each other awakens something ancient in them.

 

It pulls something up from our guts, from the depths of our feminine beingness that says:

I WISH EVERY WOMAN COULD EXPERIENCE THIS. 

 

I want the well to nourish you so deeply that your unique essence, your life-force, your distinctive soul magic can emerge with power and knowing. And then be reflected and met in a space of togetherness. 

 

The well archetype invites us to go deep. To gather together in service of nourishment, wisdom, healing, community, and sacredness. Not in our own isolated little therapy bubbles, but through a real sense of emergent exploration, together.

“Beltane: Lady of the Sacred Well” by Angie Latham

"... I stepped out of my comfort zone to reclaim my truest, most essential self." 

This retreat experience was profound, life-changing, and life-affirming. The biggest blessing from the retreat was all the positive reflections I received from Whitney and the rest of the ladies. I've never felt so loved on, so seen and so supported as I stepped out of my comfort zone to reclaim my truest, most essential self. This experience meant total, loving connection with other women as we all dived into some pretty deep waters. That small decision to take a leap into work that I was frankly scared of, led me to understand that there is an ancient divine feminine presence we can all tap into and access. I know I will continue to devote myself to this feminine power, her tenderness and her wisdom, for the rest of my life.

G.G.

"The feminine hunger is not simply a physical craving, but a spiritual yearning for meaning, purpose, and connection. It is a hunger of the soul, longing to be seen, heard, and valued for who we truly are."

- Marion Woodman

A DIFFERENT KIND OF TOGETHERNESS

"I didn't know it could be like this."

 

It's my whole-hearted intention to craft spaces where we can discover a different kind of togetherness. Not a forced togetherness and not an overly careful kind of togetherness. But an emergent togetherness that happens when women feel needed, wanted, and called upon. Where our impulses, which are often buried/suppressed in our everyday lives, allow us to discover something much more wild, much more tender, and much more true, together. 

This retreat is a place for you to let your essence come all the way out and not just be witnessed, but radically met. Not because it's forced or expected, - but because that's just what happens in a space that is centered on emergent instincts, permission, and exploration with the Feminine at the heart. This retreat is a chance to discover who we are when we drop the pretenses and we let ourselves get a little more wild and give over to the moment. 

 

Who am I when I am needed and wanted?

What does it mean to take my place in the circle?

Who do we become when we trust the wild of the moment?

What emerges when my feminine essence is truly nourished?

5 Days & 4 Nights
Together

A special opportunity to gather in person for embodiment practice, guided session work, candlelight rituals, medicinal meals, and soul-level connection with other deeply brave and powerful women on the spiritual lands of New Mexico.

While there will be planned practices and experiences, these retreats unfold based on how the moment moves us and what the truth of the moment asks from us. Our time together will be an expression of what is emergent in the women gathered, tailored to what is needed to create deep soul nourishment and allow blueprint expression to come forward more fully.

 

Below is the general flow for our time together:
 

  • We'll start the mornings at 8am with gentle movement, embodiment, and song. 

  • Slow and spacious breakfast at 9am. 

  • We'll be in circle together from 11-1 for somatic practice and session work. 

  • Long lunch hour 1-3:30pm

  • Digestion and deepening in practice together from 3:30-5pm  

  • Delicious dinner at 6pm

  • Evening ritual from 7:30-9pm 

 

These retreats are very full, but there will also be time to nap, swim, enjoy the sauna, take walks, and enjoy one another in between our designated time together.

MEET YOUR GUIDES

Whitney Ullom is a somatic sexuality coach, a trauma resolution practitioner, writer, and artist. Her work centers around the female body + soul,  supporting women to heal from trauma around pleasure and the body, patriarchal imprints, Mother wounds, and the inhibition of creative expression. 

Her life and work are dedicated to following her own soul thread and crafting unique spaces for ritual and resolution that support others to reconnect with and express the power, truth, and beauty of their own soul thread.

Kendra Cover is an intimacy coach for women and couples, supporting women to thrive in sex, love, and relationships. Her work focuses on showing women how to feel and cultivate pleasure in their bodies, and how that ability to resource pleasure from the inside ripples out into relationships, mothering, and creative pursuits. 

Kendra wants all women to know the immense power their own sensuality holds and to have a love-affair kind of relationship with their bodies and their lives. 

A PLACE TO EXPLORE, EXPERIMENT, AND EMBODY ALL THAT HUNGER
Where do you practice stepping into that wild, creative, tender, expression of the earth and cosmos that you are? Where do you get to embody the longing of your heart and be held and seen and met?

THESE RETREATS ARE A PLACE TO ACTUALLY EMBODY AND FEEL IN REAL TIME WITH OTHER PEOPLE ALL THE HEALING WORK YOU'VE DONE.

I lead retreats for the same reasons you might join one. To experience myself in spaces that invite me into a deeper embodiment of the depths of who I am. I want to keep exploring the radical edge of what happens in a room full of women who are willing to say yes to themselves and each other. Where we don't have to be so careful and curated. Where something wildly ALIVE can arise and we can move toward our longings. 

 

I want to be in a space where we get to explore to the edges. Where we can FEEL in real time the culmination of all the healing and learning. I want to dance together in the questions, longings, and desires of your heart, my heart, and our collective heart.

 

Together, I want to touch and sing and move and speak and breathe the deepest YES into what makes us come alive.

"The retreat with Whitney was PROFOUND and LIFE-ALTERING."

Because of it I will never be the same, and am also more myself than ever before. I received the deep feminine connection and community that I’ve longed for, true nourishment, an abundance of life-giving reflection and support, and now, I am fully rooted and expanded in my fullness and this new phase of my life. Whitney and the spaces that she creates are life-changing beyond words.
