Boot Camp for Goddesses®
Level 1: The Awakening
January 15 - 20, 2010
Maui, Hawaii

Women looking for the perfect way to start the New Year will be happy to know that Boot Camp for Goddesses® is coming back to Maui Community College. Led by international retreat leader, Sierra Bender, Boot Camp for Goddesses® is a holistic fitness program that is designed specifically for women. Sierra's four-prong approach to health and fitness is appropriate for women of all fitness levels, and incorporates health and fitness in the body, mind, emotions, and spirit.

Boot Camp for Goddesses® gives women an opportunity to come together with like-minded sisters and create time in their lives to focus on self-love. It teaches women how to rejuvenate by becoming self-generators of their own energy. At Boot Camp for Goddesses® women have the chance to leave behind life's demands and expectations, and reconnect with their true Goddess nature. Bender says the retreat is designed to "awaken women to their female spirit." At Boot Camp for Goddesses® women reclaim and rejoice in their magic, mystery, strength, and inner beauty.

Boot Camp for Goddesses® features yoga, fitness workouts, hiking, detoxification, meditation, breath work, aromatherapy, energetic healing, a sweat lodge purification ceremony, and live African drumming and dancing. Discussions on women's health, nutrition, healing, and gardening and permaculture are also an integral part of the curriculum.

"To become truly powerful, you have to be fit in more than just your physical body", says Bender. Boot Camp for Goddesses® creates a safe haven to explore and embrace your truth. You'll relax into that sacred place inside you where everything is still, and where answers are found.

At Boot Camp for Goddesses® you will:

  • Discover the four levels of total fitness and assess your strengths and challenges
  • Take command of your mind, body, spirit, and emotions
  • Explore women's traits of mystery, magic, balance, wisdom, and inner beauty
  • Trust, listen, and follow your body's intelligence
  • Honor the balance that exists between effort and nurturing
  • Explore what it means to meet your needs and strive for your own goals
  • Learn a new discipline of strength – the strength to let go
  • Emanate a radiant outer beauty that reflects the joy you feel within
"What an unforgettable experience I enjoyed at Boot Camp for Goddesses®. It's like coming home . . . returning to a body, a soul, a spirit that got lost along the way . . . Thank you for putting together a program that speaks gently and firmly to all of that we are as women, and all that we can be for ourselves and others."
--Wendy McGrane Strang, MPH Image Studios Films

"The boot camp is all about what's right with you, not what's wrong with you. Rather than exhausted me, it relaxed and invigorated me and reminded me to take better care of myself . . . . It was a week of celebrating women and being surrounded by other women who understood how hard it is just to survive the week with the many hats we wear on a daily basis."
--Beverly Keel, Professional Writer for People Magazine, Professor at University of Tennessee, and Grammy Board Member

"Sierra has seemingly interminable knowledge about how to help women 'be women.' She herself is challenging, compassionate, and radiantly confident, a model of how to balance the warrior and goddess energies women have."
--Sharon M. Melnick, Ph.D. Harvard Medical School Executive Coach for Women
