It is noisy out there. Distractions, notifications, ‘urgent’ needs, and endless advertisements beg for your time and energy... It starts to feel like you’re being pulled in five different directions, none of them quite aligned with that quiet feeling deep in your core, gently whispering “none of this is who you are.”
You know there must be more to life than this… or at least, you used to know. That feeling seems to be growing fainter and fainter beneath the buzz of lights and noise, the crazy chaos carnival of life. And just like a sneaky carnival game, a thousand messages assault you every moment, none of them quite feeling true, but pulling you in all the same… buy this, hide that, look like this, watch this, stay in your group, earn your place, don’t say that… and on and on, ‘til you’re exhausted from sprinting everywhere, but so scared about what might happen if you stop sprinting.
This isn’t how it’s supposed to be.
Life is meant to feel like sitting around a campfire. The warmth is real, the light is soft and calming. The people are together--REALLY, actually together--sharing stories of struggle and triumph, sharing vulnerabilities, sharing truth. No qualifications are needed. Status is nowhere to be found. No one is comparing themselves to anyone else. Hard work went into splitting the wood and catching the fish for dinner… heartful work, from a place of meaning and self-respect. Everyone has a spot. Everyone is enough. Everyone matters.This isn’t some naive, utopian fantasy--this is how life should feel. Your life can feel like this.
Once you experience this campfire way of life, you’ll see the chaos carnival for what it is: a big, noisy, grimy assemblage of tricks and distractions. Once you walk out of its gates and spend a little time immersed in what’s real, you’ll look back at the carnival and laugh at the idea that it ever had any allure. And if you ever approach its chain-link fence again, it’ll be to catch the eye of a weary soul on the inside, so you can tell them, “hey… we’re having a campfire over here, and we saved a spot for you.”
Wherever you are now--whether it’s fully ensnared by some carnival game, or outside the gates with a bad taste in your mouth, wondering what the alternative is to this big dumb game--you are not far from a meaningful life. Everything you need for the creation and living of that life is already in you… and we can walk you through the process of digging those tools up and using them.
Naturally, you may feel wary of taking this step. It’s a change, and change is scary! What is far scarier, though, is the thought of spending any more years of life wandering around through the noise, disconnected from yourself and the people around you. Whatever discomfort we may experience as a result of walking away from the carnival is so worth it--in fact, it’s a gift in itself. It’s the feeling of severing ties to something that’s sapping your soul’s energy…. Leaving you FREE.
The hardest part is taking four days away from the people and responsibilities you care so much about--and this is a very real sacrifice. There are two very important components to this… one: the people you love will be okay! They will miss you, but they will be okay for 4 days. They love you and want you to have time for yourself. And, two: With the tools you gain at this experience, you will return home ready to show up and connect with your beloveds and your responsibilities in new and powerful ways. We’ve watched this beautiful process happen over and over again.
Over the span of nearly a decade, we've held dozens of retreats and events, and helped thousands of people through our online classes--giving people soulwork tools is what we do. Below, hear from a few of our beloved alumni...
“I would absolutely 100% recommend BGC and have to many, many people. I've paid for a couple of people to take Soul Restoration. What Brave Girls Club is doing is such amazing and important work. Every woman needs to go to Camp..... Listen to the whisper of your soul. You'll know when it's the right time for you to go.”
The Walk Mountain Experience -- Aided by a one-of-a-kind curriculum written by Melody Ross, you will equip yourself with the tools to recognize what’s real and what’s not. And you’ll do it in one of the most beautiful places on earth, empowered by the quiet energy of the trees and the water and the birds and the sky.
Imagine those cords that connect you to your soul, and to the souls of others… they may have been worn ragged, assaulted for years by the chaos and the noise all around--but there’s a special power that comes from gathering with other weary warriors in such a magical patch of nature. And those cords of connection will be healed rapidly.
And though this experience will be a memory to cherish forever, that’s not the most important thing you’ll take home. You will walk back into your life with powerful tools… tools to recognize meaning, and to choose it always. And, with your glowing campfire roaring, you’ll want nothing more than to invite others to live the same way.
Five days immersed in a magical, immensely powerful patch of nature. The trees and the water and the sky will set the stage for a total change of trajectory... away from the noise, away from the spinning, away from the confusion... and toward your truth, your purpose, your peace.
Join us by the campfire this September... we saved a spot for you.
