5 practitioners... and only
15 participants: a cross between a meditation retreat, a ritual, and a healing spa.

My dream is that there is a place in every community where women who are in the public eye — uberbusy, never having time and space to reflect, yet in constant and deep service to their families and communities — can “lay it all down.” To rest, receive, rejuvenate, push the reset button... all in the company of other women. 

About Entering The Healing Temple®: 

“The Healing Temple is an immersive and safe space for reconnection. I feel whole. Held. Supported. It has been such a beautiful exploration of the Self and the Feminine. This work is soul/body/spirit/mind transformation — such a restorative gift on Life’s Journey.” — Annalisa

What is a Healing Temple?

Entering the Healing Temple — A Day of Sanctuary for Women is a guided, many-layered journey that has the feel of a day-long ritual. When you come to the Temple, you are invited to surrender into receiving: to be nourished, supported and witnessed within an intimate group of women. It is a focused, private event for a select group of 12-15 women who are excited by the prospect of having sacred time, space, and the support of community to dive into their deeper work. The Healing Temple is a mostly-silent day, where we are a living experiment in exploring how the process of transformation is accelerated by using multiple healing modalities — hands-on and hands-off — using a well-structured and facilitated format. Eight staff serve the women who participate in the journey.

Who are the Healing Temples for?

  • If you are in the public eye: someone people look to for strength, answers, and direction

  • Women who hold major responsibility as mothers, professionals, or business women

  • You, if you want to focus and strengthen your body/mind connection

  • Women who are truly dedicated to deepening their practice as a healer

What happens during a Healing Temple?

These one-day events are both highly choreographed... and deliciously spacious. You will receive five different kinds of body/mind work, inviting you to access your inner, embodied wisdom. The structure of the day allows you to integrate the work: to make shifts, transform, or otherwise work with the intention that you bring to the day. The day flows, mostly in silence... you are in the presence of other women, but it’s not chatty. To get a sense of the day, listen to the audio, below (music from “Within,” by Benjy Wertheimer & David Michael.)


Biography of Presenter:
Katherine Macomber Millman

"I fell in love with bodywork over 30 years ago, and have been practicing it ever since. Lately, I've been exploring how the process of transformation is accelerated by using multiple healing modalities — hands-on and hands-off — in a group setting: the highly structured yet spacious and flowing day, Entering the Healing Temple – A Day of Sanctuary for Women

“I believe we're all trying to make the world a better place. What I notice is that when women are more connected to our bodies and our innate body wisdom, we make better decisions, we are better parents and lovers, and we are more powerful, effective leaders in our communities. I'm thrilled to offer Entering the Healing Temple: THE TRAINING as a way to make this day of sanctuary available to more women in more communities. Together we can provide a web of these sanctuaries for women's ongoing self nourishment and transformation. This, along with the space to reflect and be witnessed, is key for having the stamina to continuing doing our important work of showing up and changing the world.”
