In this film Deanne explains more about the Ukalai and the aim of the retreat - Sacred Fire Film

Women in western culture today are bombarded with information about what they should look like, what they should buy, what they should and should not eat, how they should and should not give birth and raise their children, how they should relate to their partners, how they should divide their time between work and home, what they should believe in order to fit some standard or other.


The Lifeways Women's retreat is expressed by the Huichol word, "Ukalai" which means, "a woman who has reached a level of maturity and has taken on the responsibilities of spirit, community and family".

The Ukalai Retreat facilitators provide for any woman seeking an alternative to the "new age" and modern cultural ways, an exploration into the life ways of our ancestors and an "indigenous" world that once initiated girls into womanhood, taught and guided the feminine in the art of relationship to oneself, each other, the masculine, their community and Divine, and honored and nourished the cycles of life, a key to the feminine.


The Ukalai Retreat provides for the modern day woman a way to live in today's world fully and authentically, to navigate western culture, and to connect deeply to the divine feminine while rooted in ancestral wisdom that works in today's changing times. This Retreat moves women to experience a deep level of feminine wisdom, which will inform one’s everyday life. Ukalai is not a workshop - it's a way of life.
