Kanuga’s summer conference welcomes spiritual seekers of all backgrounds to deepen and expand your current concept of who you are in relation to the Divine. With love as our foundation, we will support participants in deconstructing harmful beliefs, adopting supportive spiritual practices, and engaging in guided writing exercises.

Three phases: Chrysalis, Spreading Our Wings, and Taking Flight, will be explored individually and in the community. Time is built in for you to be renewed in nature, cultivate your ability to find sacred space, and restore your connection with the Divine in the world around you. Our gathering will include intentional reflection, sharing insights with others as you are inclined, and supporting one another in our commitment to ongoing spiritual expansion. Join us for this spiritual adventure rooted in love.

She is a writer, speaker, entrepreneur, coach, consultant, practitioner of community development, and former church planter who walks in the two worlds of spirituality and religion. She is passionate about the rising of the Spirit and the Divine Feminine. She awaits the publication of her first book, Liberating Your Divinity From Within: A Guidebook for Your Spiritually Expansive Journey, which was largely written while being immersed in the natural world, allowing her to uncouple the wisdom of Spirit from the over-thinking mind.
