June 1-9th 2024

12pm Saturday - 6pm Sunday

Big Sur, CA

The Women's Wilderness Ceremony is an opportunity to be in deep connection with the land, community, and soul through 9 days in the wilderness of Big Sur, three of which are held in a 3-day, 3-night solo wilderness fast.

This is a time to be held by the land, listen deeply, and receive healing and transformation, all within a strong container of women.

Why a Wilderness Ceremony?

For as long as we know, humans have gone to nature to listen and connect.

To connect with our innate belonging to the Earth, to our purpose, to our calling.


To listen deeply to our soul, and to the soul of the Earth.

In our modern world, we have lost this ritual of connection and deep listening.

But we need this now, more than ever.

Why a Solo Wilderness Fast?

The solo journey is a time to sever from all modern life and come into raw connection with your own innate belonging and relationship with the Earth. Held in a container with women and guides, this is a powerful opportunity to remember who you truly are and listen to what wants to emerge from your soul.

As a practice in the art of emptiness, we will be fasting from food, shelter, human contact, and the comforts of modern life during this time (see vision fast ceremony). In general, we orient a lot around food in our daily lives, and when this is taken away, we are allowed to drop deeper into the wisdom of our soul. A deeper listening happens when we aren't distracted by our usual grind.


For many, spending time alone in nature while fasting is scary and edgy while also exhilarating and empowering. Fear is normal, and an important part of this journey. Fear helps you take care of yourself as well as allows for transformation to occur.

For some, the Solo Journey may be a rite of passage into a new role, identity, or phase of life – a severance from an old identity or way of being in the world, an honoring of who you are now, and an honoring of who you are becoming.

Deanna Renee Falge & Angela Vincent


Deanna is a passionate guide, Earth steward and dancer. She is dedicated to supporting the unfolding of people’s life journey and transformation by nurturing their emotional and spiritual connection with the Earth. Her relationship with the Earth has served as an essential anchor for navigating her life and soul's purpose, and she wants everyone to have this same opportunity.


Deanna has studied wilderness rites of passage and the art of vision fast guiding with the School of Lost Borders, Animas Valley Institute, and Earth-based Institute. She has formal education in Biological Psychology from UC Santa Barbara, and is currently studying to become a licensed Psychotherapist.

Angela is a soul guide disguised in many forms. She has spent her life following the golden threads of mystery, swimming in alpine lakes and wild rivers, bathing like a lizard on hot rocks, and above all being awed by the beauty and irony of the world.  She brings the gifts of humor, wildness, love, and deep witnessing to others’ unique unfoldings. Through her many experiences of deep connection to the soul of the Earth, she has formed a deep commitment to helping others remember their innate belonging and purpose.


She has studied with The School of Lost Borders, The Animas Valley Institute, and Martin Prechtel's "school," Bolad's Kitchen. Her formal education includes a Bachelor's degree in Secondary Education and a Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy.
