DeeDee’s background is creative and colourful; her presence is ever changing and growing and focused on encouraging women to embrace, reconnect or connect more deeply to their raw and true nature.
Highland Heartventure Roles: Lead-organizer and visionary. Capturing moments with her photography on the retreat. A supportive guide to listen, chat and work through whatever surfaces during your experience.
What feeds her soul: Community, food, bare feet in the woods, salty swims, photographing real connections and raw beauty, travel, meaningful conversations, a good cry, dance parties.
Women in Dharma Team Lead
Blair is one who always wants to understand the ‘why’ behind everything, no matter how small or big it is. This has inspired her heart-led passion of supporting others in their own journey of self-discovery.
Highland Heartventure Roles: Your intuitive healer, magic-making coach. Your support, cheerleader and go-to listener. If there’s a games night, expect Blair to be the most hilarious & thorough Charades player.
What feeds her soul: Time spent offline connecting with others, discovering new hikes, books or cute coffee shops, learning something new from every person she meets.
Super Awesome Guest Lead
A long-time friend of DeeDee’s, Katie has run multiple walks in Scotland. We are grateful for the expertise of all things Highlands.
Katie loves deeply and boisterously, in her introverted way. Her most profound satisfaction comes from enabling people to find joy and expression. She sets people up for meaningful experiences, like an old lady matchmaker.
Highland Heartventure Roles:Helping with logistics, big and small. From where we stay (and why) to making sure we’ve got blister bandaids and enough snacks.
What feeds her soul: Moss. Sea salt. Intricacy, nuance, intense flavour. Very old friendships, the little smiles and questions of new friendships. Poems, pots of perfect soup, herbs for everything.

Highland Heartventure Roles: Bringing the heart to Heartventure, Krista is here to support you in every realm. As a certified yoga instructor, Krista will lead us in optional evening stretches to release the walking of the day.
What feeds her soul: When your favorite song of the moment comes on the radio, epsom-salt baths, local cafes, board-games nights, wine nights, cozy blankets and living-room dance parties.

This is the vision we’re holding for us as a group: every morning and evening we will circle together to check-in as a group. Within that circle, the WID leads will intuitively choose something that will support the growth, energy and learning of the group.
Some possibilities are: guided group meditations, intention setting exercises, group coaching, and suggestive prompts to ponder throughout your walk.
What happens in-between each gathering, will be from a complete space of flow. Our greatest desire is that this will deepen your connection to yourself, your intuition & the women journeying with you.
The possibilities are endless! Firstly, you’re going to meet an amazing group of women and cultivate friendships that could last a lifetime. We believe in the power of gathering and connection: sharing stories, perspectives, and life experiences that truly expand our minds and deepen feelings of understanding within our hearts.
Secondly, you will be accompanied by experienced WID guides who will deeply support you throughout your journey. Whether it’s leading powerful circle gatherings, a coaching session as you journey through the Highlands or simply a listening ear at the end of the day as you share your thoughts and learnings.
Our very own, Deedee Morris, will be capturing all of the beautiful moments throughout our adventure together. There’s added possibility of booking a mini-session in the highlands with her too!
Overall, our intention is to create a memorable and life-changing retreat experience that you’ll never forget.
We highly encourage all of our retreat participants to carve out the time to experience everything end-to-end. This is meant to be a gift you give yourself and your soul!
At the same time, if for some reason you cannot be there for its entirety, please reach out to us to discuss possibilities at email@example.com.
