A woman's journey to honoring and embodying her Sacred Feminine Power... 


End February 2020-Level 1 and Level 2 (exact days coming soon)

Women are the keepers of the wisdom of Creation. Our body is the soil for new seeds and the portal through which life enters this world. We are the vessels to heal ourselves, our communities and the world. Our body's cycles are designed to synchronize with the changing of the moon and tides. Connected to the cosmos and the earth, we are powerful beyond measure.

And yet, we can feel so small.

We have forgotten... we have forgotten who we truly are. We have forgotten what we are designed to be. We have forgotten our purpose. We have forgotten why Nature created us.

Do you feel connected to the true essence of who you are? What is your relationship to your body? To your heart? To your womb? Do you trust yourself? How do you relate to your own sense of power? Who do you give your power away to? And why do you give it away? How can you reclaim your power?


When did you forget that you were worthy of the deepest kind of love and belonging? And why did you forget? Do you want to re-member who you truly are?

Join us as we enter into a safe, trusting and nurturing space to heal and transform individual and collective wounds. Together, we invoke a remembrance of the wisdom that is within each of us already.

Through devotional space, sacred intentions, ancient rituals and self-care techniques, we will:

  • Connect more deeply to our natural cycles, their magic and their power

  • Journey through practices that invite in vulnerability, speaking, and acknowledging the true Self

  • Understand, practice and anchor what it means to embody healthy boundaries

  • Somatically re-program the energy of safety to finally see and release our experiences of trauma, fear and shame

  • Ground and anchor the self-trust that is needed to open our hearts and spirits to building a stronger relationship with ourselves, others, and with Mother Nature

  • Cocreate deep connection, authentic power, and an inner listening that will forever shift the trajectory of our lives

  • Anchor and embody deep worthiness, belonging, and a new way of relating to all that is

  • Activate and express our wild nature and experience its liberation

  • Connect authentically, vulnerably and intimately to re-cognize what true sisterhood is

Join Jamie Festa and Deena Dadachanji for this powerful, weekend long journey of unfolding into the beauty and strength that is truly the essence of who you are as a woman.

We will be walking together in support of a deep willingness to listen, awaken, transform, honor and embody the Divine Feminine Power that is our birthright, and will be gently unfolding and clearing out the beliefs and patterns that have been blocking us from blossoming into our full potential.

The time has come to support and guide one another in stepping more fully into who we are. As each of us walks the journey of reclaiming our authentic power and anchoring self-trust, we give others the permission to do the same. Together, we uncover, strengthen and share our gifts, to change our lives and transform our world.

I wasn’t sure about joining the retreat initially because I am an incredibly busy person and I didn’t think I had the time or energy. Only once I got into the retreat did I realize how much I needed this time-out and weekend with women. As a result of giving myself this gift, I had a lot of Aha Moments and was really able to connect with myself in the safe and sacred space. Although I was skeptical about the impact of this retreat, it unlocked and unleashed a deep trauma that needed healing. This moved my soul deeply and let me tap into a message that led me to an epiphany. From a thorny rose, I felt this deep blooming and opening into something I had hidden away from myself. It was something that was buried, and it came up into the surface in a symbolic and incredibly vivid dream on the first night of the retreat, like my subconscious finally dealing with the issues of my past. I did not realize how deeply this trauma in the past was affecting my daily behaviours and decisions. I felt safe to approach the facilitators to support me to deal with this trauma, which came up in the middle of the night through the nightmare. I knew I was safe and held with their presence. Within the first day, I had this huge release and I felt ten years younger because I had let go of this trauma. I felt calmer, more at ease and able to be more creative with all the incredible tools you provided. Having access to art and creativity during the retreat was very meaningful for me. I could envision the woman I wanted to paint on the canvas, which is a good reflection of my own ability to communicate and let my subconscious bring this woman to life. It also awakened my inner creative side, of which I had neglected. This retreat made me see how deeply I was neglecting myself, my past traumas and my own gifts and talents. It taught me that I need to give myself time and space, meditation and to pay attention to my dreams. It made me see that my soul is craving a creative outlet. The sessions in the retreat provided the tools and support to really come to this realization. I have had hugely powerful connections with women who I had never met before. I also learned about my own menstrual cycle, which is knowledge and tools that I have not had. I see the power of my cycle and what cost it comes with when we do not recognize and honour the cycle. I also felt grateful to sing and move, and to have my voice heard through the songs and dancing. I have realized that I need to pay attention to the deeper things that I push aside in my daily life, and I am grateful for the safe space to let it out. I am grateful for the conscious container to listen to myself and understand my own internal communication, which is happening all the time and is encouraged in the retreat. Thank you for reminding me about what matters and re-awakening the potential of the gifts I have!

I have just completed THE most magical healing programme at the most beautiful retreat centre in Mallorca. It is a truly life changing programme. I would like to recommend Wise, Wild, & Worthy, at DIMA Mallorca, to all my sisters who want to do radical healing work.

I usually really struggle in a group setting. I lose myself, forget myself, compare myself, find myself lacking in all kinds of ways. This time when I wobbled I let myself be held. I let myself be seen. I literally allowed a group of 4 extraordinary women to gather round me and hold me as I sobbed and sobbed and sobbed my old, stuck pain out of my body. And I looked them in the eye and thanked them with tears and snot running down my face. And this courage to be seen has changed my life.

Because I allowed myself to be witnessed and held in my deepest pain, I broke through to the other side. I broke into my light, really as fully as I ever have. The clouds are still there, but intermittent, lighter, more transient.
I felt the lightness of myself when with others, for the most part, not always of course. Laughter and lightness came so naturally to me amongst these women. They commented a lot on my humour. This has been lacking a lot since I was a child because of so much heaviness that I’ve been carrying. Their responses to me reflected back in the most beautiful way, the return of lightness to my ‘being.’
I wish for ALL my sisters to experience this lightness of being. I had been searching for it my entire life.
The willingness to be seen and to be held in our full emotional nakedness is the only way. This healing work requires others. We can’t do it alone, hiding away from the world in the privacy of our own bedrooms. We must be WITNESSED in all our mess by those who can hold us. We must make a pledge to ourselves to stop hiding our mess, our grief, our rage, our sadness. It’s ALL there. We must give space for these things to rise within us, to be expressed, to be seen and to be released. This is not selfish or indulgent work. This is THE work that each of us must step into if we want to see the world around us be radically healed xxxx 🧚🏽♀️

Facilitated by Kanika Frings , Deena Dadachanji & Jamie Festa with an incredible group of courageous woman <3

The Wise, Wild and Worthy Retreat at Dima Mallorca was a life-changing experience for me. Deena, Jamie and Kanika created a sacred and safe space, with such a loving attention to details and intentions that shone through all the work that they did with us. This enabled all of us to connect in deep and healing ways, and gave us resources and understandings that we could take back with us and implement into our lives. I loved the Moon Journal idea, which I have been keeping up everyday and hope to for many moons to come, as it’s helped me to be in tune with my body’s rhythms and cycles. I loved the exercises that we did together and appreciated all the care that had gone in to it. I felt so seen, heard and a strong sense of love and devotion by all who were present during this retreat. The location at Dima was absolutely divine, especially the Budha Hall where we met daily and being surrounded by nature and the most breath-taking view of the stars in the night sky. I really enjoyed cooking and eating communally with my sisters, this was a special time for me. There was much that took me outside of my personal comfort zones, which I needed to see how much I’ve grown and how far I’ve come. It was such a huge gift to me in my life, and has inspired me endlessly to what is possible for myself personally and collectively in the world when women connect with love and reverence for each other and the Earth. Thank you ladies, endlessly!

What a journey it was to be a part of the Wise Wild and Worthy Women’s retreat - I can’t even believe everything we shared, learned, lived, it was so deep, special, rich in experiences.
We were guided so well by the amazing Deena, Jamie and Kanika, I feel so grateful for all the efforts they put into it and how it all felt so natural, comfortable, safe. They really held the space in a way that I felt free to be myself, to open up, to explore and also go deep in self-reflection.
They were full of compassion and love, giving so much from their hearts, holding the space for us to shed light on our essence, to let light shine on our qualities and honoring our darkness.
I loved learning about the moon cycle and how it connects to womanhood.

The location is perfect for the retreat, surrounded by nature, wide open sky all around to see the stars. Even being an introvert, it was fun and comfortable to live in this community of women and I still felt that I had the space I needed to be with myself and rest. Oh and did I mention also that is was so much fun? and the food was delicious?

My heart is now filled with beautiful memories that I go back to whenever I need to feel the support and connection that we shared in our circles and lived all together during these days. I did really feel like stepping into a parallel world! I will be back!

“Kanika, Jamie, and Deena created an amazing and beautiful temple for us to explore real sisterhood and connect deeper with ourselves. Stepping out of our comfort zones in a field full of trust, compassion and healing. We let our creativity flow in different and beautiful ways with a lot of playfulness. It was a pleasure to be a part of such an amazing circle of women. Thanks Kanika, Jamie, and Deena for creating this beautiful journey for us- with so much love in every single detail”

I can’t thank Kanika, Jamie, and Deena enough for their thoughtfulness and authenticity throughout the Wise, Wild and Worthy retreat. Their unique gifts and talents mixed perfectly together to create a warm, nurturing and transformative space to explore within. DIMA truly is a place to retreat, a home away from home, with stunning veranda views and clear night skies. I felt instantly welcomed into DIMA and the community of women. Over the four days we laughed, cried, danced and healed together knowing that whatever showed up was welcome and held in a safe and sacred space. The Wise, Wild and Worthy retreat was a magical experience, and a journey that has continued, developed, and transcended into my everyday life and practices.

Wild, Wise, and Worthy’ was a transformative retreat that provided critical opportunities for me to reconnect with myself and gently explore things that I have been silencing for a long time. Deena and Jamie are expert facilitators who are generous with their time, knowledge, and loving support. Our discussions helped me connect with my fellow sisters in a way that I never felt able to in the past, and helped me understand the power of women coming together. By the end of the retreat, I felt hopeful in my ability to be creative, trust my power and intuition, and be myself. Thank you Deena and Jamie!
