Boot Camp for Goddesses®
Teens 13-17 Goddess in Training
Fluff Meets Tough
Goddess in Training is where fluff meets tough—an intensive and exhilarating workshop designed to empower teenage girls of all physical fitness levels to awaken their Core Female Power™, take command of their space, claim their femininity, find their voices, and build self-worth from the inside out. The mission is to acquaint teenage girls with the value of being a woman and learn how to embrace, embody and celebrate that wonderful gift.
The time has come for them to put their female spirit into action, and become victorious and courageous, not victimized and compromised. This is where fluff meets tough. Boot Camp for Goddesses® Teens awakens their female spirit - the magnificent combination of Goddess and Warrior - which is:
Fierce & Feminine
A Goddess Warrior creates her own destiny rather than allowing her environment to shape her. Her energy comes from a place of centeredness and balance. She is in touch with her intuition and brave enough to follow its guidance. When a teen has mastered this natural state of being, she has found her true authentic self.
Empowerment * Leadership * Entrepreneurship
Boot Camp for Goddesses® Teens utilizes the Sierra Bender Empowerment Method® ("SBEM") a 4 Body Fit® clinically proven and measured system by the Department of Psychology at American University, Washington D.C. since 2010. The remarkable results recognized:
93% increase in power
87% increase in self-esteem
77% increase in righteous anger
70% increase in community activism
50% increase in optimism
The SBEM is a medical and holistic system to help break through to new levels of empowerment and well being -physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually-for women at all levels of physical fitness. As a result of implementing the SBEM, a new vital personal core power is developed and revealed.
Laughter, Tears & Sweat
Workshop activities include yoga, fitness, hiking, archery, horseback riding, meditation, aromatherapy, core power & healing techniques, drumming, dancing, a Native fire ceremony, sweatlodge and the Goddess to the Core® Inside Out Workout, (including weight training, yoga, exercise bands) as well as discussions on girls’ health, nutrition, and healing. You will be surrounded by the greatest Goddess of all - our most powerful feminine energy - Mother Nature.
Throughout your high-spirited week of adventure, courage and effort you will:
Boot Camp for Goddesses® Teens recognizes that wisdom is ageless and that during the teenage years, girls are at their most receptive intuitive and powerful. This workshop will educate teens on how to become healthy, whole and holy women of power who will lead the next generations in creating balance and harmony within and equilibrium without. Your legacy - that of your generation - will be to rejuvenate and protect the most powerful female essence, Mother Earth and to be an advocate to globally create change.

The Sierra Bender Empowerment Method (“SBEM”) Effectiveness in Action
“Within 5 days of participating in Boot Camp for Goddesses® Teens: Goddess in Training I became a totally changed person. When I first came to the workshop, I realized I was using my throat to speak. I was shy, and didn’t have enough confidence in myself. Now I use my core to speak my truth and I am no longer afraid to show the world who I truly am.”
—Sophia Traphagen 14 years old
All about a Goddess Girl.
What my Aunt Sierra taught me.
A Goddess girl cares about her self and other people. She see’s God on the inside and out side. A Goddess girl cares about her body so she eat’s good food and exercise all the time to keep her body strong and healthy. She likes to play sports and she likes to play all different kinds of sports. Also a Goddess is comfortable being a girl and her own self. A Goddess also is graceful with her self and loves her self. She loves animals and loves to talk about God and Spirit she makes songs about Mother Nature and God and other songs they want. She loves to talk to god and loves her life and the world’s life too.
I LOVE BEING A GODDESS!
—Gianna Bender Cumba! 8 years old
I hope that when I grow up I have the same wisdom as you do.

"In a perfect world, all young women would have the opportunity to access "The Sierra Bender Empowerment Method". My 16 year old daughter has now taken Sierra's "Boot Camp For Teens" for two consecutive summers and the impact on her self-esteem, confidence and body awareness has been immediate, profound and enduring. I will be eternally grateful to Sierra and her team for being such positive role models for young women as they are claiming their space in this world. It is such an uplifting and inspiring experience for these young women and all who love them!"
—Jane Farnham, General Manager, Healthcare
I am beyond blessed to have spent the last five days with 7 other beautiful teen Goddesses. I started when I was 14 and continue to come back every year. Through bootcamp week, I have let go of the little things that have held me back from being completely present in my body. Every time I come back from a week with Sierra, I can't help but feel like I can be the change that the world needs. As I left Omega every year crying, I realized why I was crying. I wasn't sacred to go back into the world, I wasn't afraid of people judging me, but sad that I had to leave such wonderful friends behind. Leaving, you not only feel empowered but you also leave feeling like you're a part of something and for someone that never felt that sense of community at home, that's life changing. Every year, I see so many young women start the week weak and self conscious; by the end of the week these girls are glowing and radiating beauty into the world. I leave not being able to wait for the next summer to go back. Sierra, thank you for believing in me when I didn't believe in myself and thank you for giving me the space to come and be able to completely be myself. Goddess Up!

Just want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for yesterday! I could have continued the conversation for hours - was very frustrated that I had to cut it short.
I'm not sure you fully realize how powerful your gift is. You were able to articulate and crystallize some of the things I've been struggling for years with to articulate in such a way that Caileigh can really "get" and connect to. Thank you for sharing your gift with us.
When I told her I spoke with you yesterday, she was absolutely in awe - "You actually spoke to Sierra"? Wish I could telepathically send you the image. I shared many of the things we spoke about using your words as I captured them on paper and it was a phenomenal conversation!

I asked my daughter "if you had to write a college essay right now about something or someone that has changed your life what would it be about?" She giggled a little and said "well I am only 15 but the way I would answer that now is I would write about Boot Camp for Goddesses"! I thought you might like to hear that. I am really watching my daughter turn into a Goddess, Sierra. The way she is with her friends and her boyfriend and how she stands her ground in situations that are very difficult. Her refusal to drink under pressure, her refusal to compromise her principals, her refusal to allow people to treat her in any way other than with respect! She always had this in her and this is what we try to teach her but teen Bootcamp closed the circle on that and really woke up the Goddess in her! THANK YOU!!
Sierra’s workshop strengthened the bond between my daughter and I. Life was pulling us apart and Sierra’s workshop brought us back together as Mother and daughter- Friend to Friend. Woman to Woman. My greatest treasure in life is my daughter Erin. The workshop taught us so much but most importantly unconditional love. The mother-daughter relationship is the most complex and Sierra helped us heal and made us realize our truth. The workshop changed our lives.
