Honour Your Sacred Feminine


An Initiation into the Sacred Feminine

Andrea Menard, who’s Anishnabee name is Fire Woman, invites all initiates of the Sacred Feminine to put their Feet On the Earth and retreat to the Big Island of Hawai’i, the home of the Kanaka Maoli (traditional people.) 

The ultimate act of honouring the Sacred Feminine is to honour your own Sacred Self.

This Women’s Gathering will dive deep into your Sacred Self by introducing you to the ancient Feminine Goddesses of Hawai’i: Pelehonuamea and Namakaokahai. They will stir your soul and spark your memory of your own Fire Woman and Water Woman.

These powerful goddesses of Hawai’i will help you travel through the initiations of your own Sacred Self. But all initiations will be guided by YOU.

Fire Woman will assist you through the work of the Four Sacred Bodies.

Learn how to:

  1. Embody your own Fire Woman.

  2. Embrace the power of your own Water Woman.

  3. Nurture the elements within you through the Four Sacred Bodies.

  4. Communicate with your Physical, Emotional, Mental and Spiritual Bodies in a profound and permanent way.

“Mother Nature pulled out all the stops when she created this place.... Waterfalls of unimaginable beauty, giant cliffs that tower above crashing waves, rivers of molten lava, snow-capped peaks, barren deserts, lava fields, rainforests, and valleys of indescribable beauty adorn this sacred land. There is no other place quite as magical as this one.”

Following Proper protocols

Andrea Menard and Feet on the Earth Retreats follow proper protocols by asking permission and acknowledging the Kanaka Maoli of the Big Island of Hawai’i.


Keeping it Intimate

limited space available



With a land as varied as a Human Spirit, there is no better place to connect and communicate with your Sacred Self than Hawai’i Island.

Hawaii is one of the most ecologically diverse places in the world, and actually has many varied climates on the Big Island. Yes, it has hot, sandy beaches, but that’s not all. The Big Island is known more for its five major volcanoes (three are currently active!), its lava beds, its distinctmicro-climates and its intensely powerful goddess, Pelehonuamea.

** As Pele is a living, active volcano, you can never 100% guarantee anything on the island. So let’s just say, that if our locations are no longer available, we will find another equally suitable accommodation to replace it.



The 8-day Retreat for 2020 pricing is $2620 usd.

Your Hosts

Fire Woman & the Mermaid Photographer


Fire woman

Fire Woman is Metis singer, sound healer and trainer, Andrea Menard. As a proud advocate for Mother Earth, gender equality, and unity amongst all nations, Andrea was born to lead others through the transition from the Sacred Masculine into the Rise of the Sacred Feminine. She trains individuals to “Lead Like a Goddess.”

Andrea aspires to find balance and meaning in the simple, natural things in life. Always a spiritual student, her work as a spiritual teacher was born the day she accepted her traditional Cree name, Notigwew Yutin, which means Grandmother Wind in English. Having recently been given her Anishnabee name, Skooteah Equahh, which means Fire Woman, Andrea is even more inspired to help others own and embody their inner Goddess.

Andrea uses her grandmotherly wisdom and her fiery energy to help both women and men embody qualities of the Sacred Feminine. Through honouring, receptivity, inclusion, emotional release, fierce self-care, sound healing, and prayer, Fire Woman teaches you how to connect more deeply with Mother Earth, and your authentic Sacred Self. 

The Mermaid Photographer

Grandmother Wind is partnering with Biologist, writer and under water photographer Susan Knight of Susan Knight Studios. Susan is a competent Water Woman (some say Mermaid), naturalist guide, snorkeling instructor, diving instructor, and experienced facilitator of meditation and adventure retreats.

Susan is the innovator of the personalized Water Messages photo shoot, which captures images in such a way as to allow Water Wisdom to arise into Self knowledge. All participants have the option to purchase her various packages.

Susan will lead you into the beauty and deepness that is Hawai’i. She knows that being in nature and truly Listening is the key to connecting with Mother Earth, to each other, and to your own Sacred Self.

All the photos on this page (except the Pele photo) were taken by Susan Knight. Come see why the Mermaid Photographer has fallen in love with the Big Island.
