DENISE YUEN / DISCOVERING THE SELF IN THE STARS   Denise is a budding astrologer who first fell in love with the ancient art (and science!) of astrology three years ago during a particularly challenging time in her life. She credits it with her radical shift toward self-discovery, self-acceptance and self-love, and now works to help transform the lives of others through birth chart analysis and evolutionary astrology to guide seekers toward their deepest self-knowing and soul purpose.    ASTRO 101: DISCOVERING THE SELF IN THE STARS will be a quick snapshot of how to look at a natal chart; what your sun, moon and rising signs mean; and where to find your purpose! P.S. Your astrological chart is the best personality test you will ever take— did you know Carl Jung was an astrologer?    Denise will also be offering 10 mini birth chart readings to the first 10 campers who sign up. Sign up sheet will be posted in the 2019 RAW Retreat FB group 2 weeks in advance!

STEPHANIE RANKINE / CREATIVE DREAM WEAVER   Connecting with other beautiful souls is my passion. With each step of my own journey, I strive to be a compassionate, kind, loving space for others to come home to. Each moment of my life, I contribute to others by being bold, vulnerable and raw about my own experiences so that others feel comfortable to share themselves openly and freely with both myself and others who are important to them in their lives. Through community, I love creating connections and experiences for others to recognize their own greatness and creativity.    From a space of love, trust, acceptance and inclusion, I will be leading a Creative Dream Weaver Workshop. If you love the beauty of dreamcatchers and have always wanted to manifest your dreams through creating your very own, then this workshop is for you! Before starting, we will actually ‘dream’ together! If called to do so, you will each have an opportunity to share one of your dreams or deepest desires for your life with the other women and you can set an intention or possibility that you would like to weave into your dreamcatcher. I will also provide an Oracle Deck reading to those who are interested and can give guidance with regards to setting an intention at any time throughout the workshop. I am so excited to connect with each one of you and to experience what you will create!

JENNIFER MARTINO / BEHIND THE MASK: INTRO ACTING EXERCISE   Jennifer works with a non-profit funding agency to support non-profits in telling their story of impact. She also teaches Communications and Writing & Reasoning at Fanshawe College. In Fall 2018, Jennifer played Achilles in a production of the Greek Tragedy Iphigenia in Aulis. This role was made possible through the power of mask work, which Jennifer is excited to share with peers at the 2019 RAW retreat.    Masks are a powerful tool to step out of yourself and explore forms of expression. No experience required - we will be talking about the basics of mask work in theater and trying some simple but impactful exercises. Masks will be provided, but if you have a mask if you would like to use from theater or elsewhere please do bring it. The more diversity of masks we have the richer the experience will be for all.
