Boot Camp for Goddesses

Boot Camp for Goddesses Level 1: The Awakening
April 21 - 26, 2009
Maui, Hawaii

Women in search of the perfect spring renewal will be thrilled to know that Boot Camp for Goddesses will be coming to Maui Community College this Spring. Led by international retreat leader, Sierra Bender, Boot Camp for Goddesses is a holistic fitness program that is designed specifically for women. Sierra has a four-pronged approach to health and fitness that incorporates the spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical.

Boot Camp for Goddesses is designed for women at all levels of fitness. Women of all backgrounds will leave behind life's demands and expectations, and return to their true Goddess nature. It's a chance to reclaim and rejoice in your magic, mystery, strength, and inner beauty. Bender says the retreat is designed to "awaken women to their female spirit."

Boot Camp for Goddesses features yoga, fitness workouts, hikes to sacred sites, detoxification, meditation, breath work, aromatherapy, energetic healing, a sweat lodge purification ceremony, and live African drumming and dancing. Also included are discussions on women's health, nutrition, and healing. "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.

A few things you will gain at Boot Camp for Goddesses:

  • Discover the four levels of total fitness and assess your strengths and challenges
  • Take command of your mind, body, spirit, and emotions
  • Explore what it means to meet your needs and strive for your own goals

  • Honor the balance that exists between effort and nurturing
  • Explore what it means to meet our needs and strive for your own goals
  • Learn a new discipline of strength – the strength to let go
  • A more radiant outer beauty reflecting 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
