New! - Wonderful Wednesdays

Custom "Mini" Retreats

Treat Yourself to a High Vibrational Spa Day

Who doesn't need a lift, a boost, re-energizing or inspiration in the middle of the week? Well, here's a great way to take extra special care of yourself, get centered, relaxed, re-charged and balanced within body-mind-spirit.

Receive psycho-spiritual attunement through this Holistic Vibrational Spa Day that you will custom design with Mary Ellen Connett, relationship therapist, energy worker, psycho-spiritual transformational healer, equine facilitated therapist and drum circle leader.

Choose from a 1 1/2 hour, 2 hour and 3 hour Journey which will begin in the morning on your scheduled Wednesday.

Each Journey can be designed on a scale of "Mostly Fun and Uplifting" to "Mostly Healing and Transformational." You decide; and Mary Ellen Connett will adjust the level of intensity and focus to match your desire!

Join us as we create a sacred circle of women and guide you through positive vibrational experiences designed to ignite your passionate creative spirit from within. This is your "Fire," your fingerprint of your soul.

Our experiences of nature, art, meditation, drumming and equine encounters will deepen and strengthen your “fire” and lead you to the truly authentic, empowered and creative life you were meant to live!

Inspiring, Invigorating and Igniting

Your “Fierce Feminine Fire” is the unique fingerprint of your soul, including the range of expression from compassion/love to cooperation/community to standing your ground/standing up for yourself in adversity.

Awakening Your Fierce Feminine Fire is awakening your Soul to living a passionate, creative and spirit-filled life.

This type of empowerment for women requires a passionate, energetic force, a “fire” ignited from within, a propulsion of intention supported by a community of other women who nurture one another’s development from seed, to emergence, to ripening, to harvest.

 Sacred Circles



Ridgeway Place

Our day long, half day and individual and couples sessions are held on the grounds of a beautiful 200 acre horse farm in Waverly Hall, GA. It is the perfect setting to creatively connect with other women as we share in the joyful and passionate feminine spirit. 

Women experience pure joy, laughing out loud, unleashing creativity, spontaneity, soulfulness and rich camaraderie with one another. And plenty of opportunity for solitude, communing with nature, and quiet meditation.

 Rhythmic Recipes

Saturday, November 10, 2018 ~ 9 AM – 1 PM 

 Join us as we gather at Ridgeway Place in Waverly Hall, GA to experience new ways to connect with the natural world. For the first time, we are offering a combined journey to explore the connection between drumming, food, and nature. Each offers a unique lesson to understanding how we connect with our true self. Vibration is everything! We receive vibrational energy through drumming, food, and nature!

Come join us on this incredible journey into the world of feeding ourselves in ways that nourish our souls. Ways that raise our positive vibration while eating the most nutritiously chosen and prepared foods. 

Rhythmic Recipes will be lead by Mary Ellen Connett and guest instructor, Alex Connett

This mother-daughter team is combining their passions to empower others to have a deeper relationship with food. There are “high” and “low” vibrational foods! And there are “high” and “low” vibrational choices and ways of preparation.


During this journey we will: 

  • Meditate

  • Balance Our Energy

  • Discuss and Create New Eating Rituals

  • Gather Food/Plants in Nature

  • Prepare a Nutritious Meal Together Outdoors

  • Participate in a Food, Fire and Drum Ceremony

  • Drum Together in Gratitude

  • Explore Our Vibrational Energy
