Renee Fogarty (see bio)

The Women's March in early 2017 bore witness to the joyful midwifing of the Earth-centered energy. Our retreat will consider the pivotal roles women might play in this great, global unfolding. Deepen your experience of oneness with nature so that we can intentionally participate in this unfolding.

By taking full advantage of the seclusion and beauty surrounding Powell House, we will explore how living into our unity with the Earth can heal us even as we heal the planet. We'll empower ourselves, our communities, and our world by engaging in numerous outdoor activities.

Our facilitators combine ancient universal practices which explore external and internal landscapes.

We'll engage in: An Aboriginal medicine walk, Earth-honoring ceremonies, understanding the architecture and impact of "mind" at individual and collective levels, guided imagery, and personal introspection.

In order to: Challenge self-limiting beliefs; Tap into the clarity and deep insight achieved by understanding ourselves AS nature; Access our deepest callings and intuitive wisdom; Facilitate new levels of trust, respect and communication with nature; Gain a wider understanding of the reality of the world in which we live in order to fully contribute to its evolution. 

Registration: $230/adults; $115/ages 13-22; $58/infants-12; $165/commuters.

This retreat is intergenerational and trans-inclusive.
