Firefly Women’s Rising Retreat and Fundraiser

September 28, 2017 - October 1, 2017


This retreat supports and celebrates

Women recovering from their traumatizing
experiences in human trafficking and sexual abuse.
Survivors of human trafficking or domestic abuse,
some of whom have lost everything they owned during their flight to freedom.
Women whose courage and strength to begin again is inspiring and humbling.

We’re seeking sponsorships that will allow women to participate in this deeply immersive healing event designed to restore balance to our wider community.


This retreat has the potential to affect the lives of up to 17 women who will come together as a community to dig deep, shake loose, and wash away their trauma, much of which has been chasing them around since childhood. Our intention is to foster lasting change. Together Cherie and Joy will:
heal participants deep-rooted trauma, especially around sexually abusive experiences; catapult them out of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder response cycles; illuminate a vision for each participants’ potential; liberate participants from their past and move them forward with intentional, life-affirming action steps

We begin our journey in the rustic artistic womb of Wattle Hollow Retreat Center. We will dig deep, held in the arms of the Earth Mother. We will collectively journey into the Akashic Records, in the peaceful and magnificent wilderness. Life will be forever changed with the primordial sound that Joy pulls from another time and space. Life-changing experiences are bound to show up in the Crystal Palace and other magical sites at Wattle Hollow.

Next, we’ll be doing some real-time digging for amazing Arkansas crystal,
followed by the opportunity to charge these new gems with the amazing energies of the collective synergy that we create as a group.

Be pampered, loved, and even fed by our very own personal chef, Jackie Casteel.

After all of our digging and weaving, we will wrap up our adventure in Hot Springs for a little pampering. You will have the opportunity to let all of what is no longer serving slide down the drain in the mineral baths at the Quapaw Bath House.
Washed clean… you re-enter life recharged and reinvented, in whatever way you choose!

We need your help!
Your support will help make this a reality
for at least 5 and up to 17 women!

Why your donation matters:

The women who need this experience most are not in a financial position to afford it. As at-risk individuals, it is essential for them to move from their current states to becoming vital, contributing members of society. A full sponsorship of $1,100 will give one woman the spiritual and mental care that is not available through the current system. But no donation is too small, and we are grateful for any support.

Joy and Cherie offer forty years of combined experience as healing practitioners. They have helped hundreds of women to reframe their lives, shifting their perspective and empowering them to take positive action.

Help fund this opportunity for these
women—these mothers—to dream a different dream and create a new reality.
