Wild Women Retreat

We will be gathering on the weekend of August 13 – 15th
for the 6th annual Wild Women Retreat.

A magical relaxing weekend of sister time, ritual and play awaits!

Registration is due 7/31.

We have a beautiful space with woods and fields and a swimming pond… a covered pavilion and room for camping… It is quite lovely and it’s secluded and perfect for our gathering.   We come together to celebrate and honor ourselves, our sisters, our connection with nature and the cycles of life. We share food and co-create the magic of the weekend with our offerings.

We are fortunate to be at the point following the pandemic that we feel safe gathering again! With that being said, we ask that everyone please be mindful when considering attending. If you or anyone that you have come in contact with has had any COVID-like symptoms in the two weeks leading up to the event, please stay home. This event is outdoors, but we will be in close proximity to eachother under the pavilion. If you are no vaccinated, wearing a mask would be appreciated when social distancing is not possible. Hand sanitizer will be provided at different locations on site.

This event is for female self-identified people. Saturday during the day, pre-teen girls and infants are welcome as well.

Additional details:

In keeping with the collaborative beauty of sisterhood, we will each contribute in a few ways:

FOOD

Meals are done potluck style.  Chelsea will be coordinating food this year.  Once registration has closed and we have a full head count for the weekend, she will contact you with your meal assignment. You can then sign up for whichever part of that meal that suits you.  Meals will be arranged to provide a spectrum of dishes to accommodate various dietary restrictions (i.e vegetarian, vegan, paleo, etc).
Any mothers of picky eaters who will be joining us on Saturday are encouraged to come prepared with a sack lunch or snacks in the event your little one finds our menu unpalatable ?

OFFERINGS

In addition to food, we ask you to make an offering of your time and skills.   That’s where the magic happens.  Take some time to think about what being wild means to you.  What does it feel like in your body?  What activities, thoughts, movements are wild?   From this place of wildness, what wisdom can you share with other women that you’ve gathered over your life?  Perhaps there’s an activity or a practice of yours you’d like to share.  Or maybe there is a topic you’re curious about and you’d like us to explore it together and pool our wisdom.  Saturday is the time to share these offerings.

SCHEDULE

Friday afternoon we set up the space, share dinner and at dusk, there will be a opening ritual to celebrate and honor the young women among us who recently completed the WillowGrove coming of age program.
Saturday is our family day, so babies and young girls are welcome to join us during the day to frolic in the woods.   It is a time to share gifts, skills, knowledge, workshops, whatever we bring with us and create from the earth.
Saturday night is the Bonfire, so bring your howls, your magic, your drums and your bells. This is indeed a Circle of the Circles and our monthly magic is magnified, so come prepared to let it all go and embrace the wild.
Sunday we share breakfast, relax a final time by the pond and break up camp.

A magical relaxing weekend of sister time, ritual and play awaits!
