Why Women's Summit?

It has been a long time dream of mine to create an event that would merge both moto + wellness together.  WMS is designed to bring together women from all walks of life who share a love of riding and/or wellness.  I created this event with the hopes of leaving guests feeling replenished, empowered and energized.  

The Summit is a community-driven event designed to rejuvenate your mind, body, and spirit. A ‘choose your own adventure’ weekend that is perfect for those seeking wellness, self-care, and pampering; or for those who want to challenge themselves through a series of self discovery activities and engaging conversations.  
WMS aims at providing a safe and supportive space, free from judgment, where you can explore your inner self and learn how to tap into your natural resilience.

What if I don't ride?

There is no requirement to ride when it comes to WMS.  In fact, whether you show up on two or four wheels, the intention is for all vehicles to be parked for the weekend.  For those who are interested in learning to ride, check out the experiences section below!

Why Cheekye Ranch?

Cheekye Ranch, set in the stunning Squamish Valley, is an incredible place, whose founders prides themselves on being dedicated animal lovers.  It is home to Second Chance Horse Rescue (SCCR), where their team of passionate volunteers work tirelessly to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome horses in need. They believe that every animal deserves a chance to thrive, and are dedicated to providing those horses with the best possible care so that they're ready for a happy, healthy future.

@kardiasquing, Musician

"This past weekend I was blessed with the invitation from the Universe to share myself and my music, with the freedom to explore how to connect with each other through music, at a Wmxn’s Moto Summit wellness retreat in the Squamish Valley at a Horse Ranch.
 
I had no idea what to expect, and even with hesitation - felt a pull to accept… what I experienced is unquantifiable in words - but I will try.
 
The warmth, the grounding, the vulnerability & love that was the space for curiosity for connection on a deeper level - not only with the amazing humans that attended & created this event and the incredible land we were so blessed to experience this on - but to ourselves, was an overwhelming encapsulated feeling of being welcomed home.
 
Thank you @kokabe @womensmotosummit & @cheekye_ranch for cultivating a space for remembering this field of love we belong to, and for allowing us to witness it in our reflection through the lush, resilient trees, constant rushing river, & the other incredible beings that shared their presence and energy. & Thank you to my dear friend @alicedriscoll__ for accompanying me and helping me capture this experience.
 
My cup is full & I am home 🫶🏽"
