Join the Sisterhood

Join the circle for a Women’s Day Retreat to ground yourself in personal reflection through various mediums.

We have combined many of our favorite practices and facilitators in one invigorating day. We hope you join us for a day to nurture your soul through various mediums. In one day we will create artistic expression with Soul Collage, move our bodies with yoga, journal and connect and then integrate all we have turned with a sound bath. We hope you will allow yourself to feel the tranquility of this energetic day to promote deep relaxation, reduce stress and rejuvenate you.

Morning Offerings:

Mala Making and Manifesting

Build your own Mala with Donna Mosca

We will begin with an intention-setting meditation for only You can create the change that you want in your life.

You know your most heartfelt desires, intentions, and goals. When you make your own mala you are setting your intentions with each knot you tie, each bead you string. You are manifesting your intentions into a physical creation that will be a constant reminder for you of your desired actions, emotions, and life path.

Why build your own mala? Sure, you can buy one, but this is a sacred, personal tool and your intention and goals now live and breathe within its energy. And just like anything else that is homemade, it’s just better! It now holds the most important ingredient. LOVE.

Each time you caress your fingers over all 108 beads, place it around your neck, you will be reminded of the time, love and commitment you gave to yourself, your future and your greatest intentions.

Yoga

Join Peace Tree Yoga for Vinyasa Style Yoga.

Our Mixed Flow classes offer options for everyone! The Mixed Flow class is a vinyasa style practice that prepares the body with a gentle flowing warm up, works into poses that we hold to build strength, includes a balancing posture, and moves into deeper floor stretches at the end of class. This is our most popular class, that gives you many choices in most postures, versus practicing with a one-size fits all approach. This class is ideal for anyone that is comfortable moving down to the floor, and back up to standing, several times throughout the one hour practice. It is the perfect combination of effort and surrender.

Afternoon Offerings:

Women’s Circle

Join Holly Morgan for our Goddess Moon Women’s Circle.

During this time you can expect: A Sensuous Sacred Space held by a trained WWP Facilitator with Guided Meditation, Sharing, Intention Setting Ritual.

These circles are not associated with a singular path or religion, but rather, an inclusive coming together with women from all paths. We all come from different spiritual/cultural backgrounds and gather around the ideas of: Sisterhood (having each others backs, empowering one another), a respect for the earth (wildness, turning to nature as a teacher) & co-creation (the understanding that just as we co-create our experience in circle, so do we co-create life on earth). We also tend to be a heart-centered bunch, lots of laughter & tears.

Sound Bath

Join Kimberly Lempart for a Soothing Sound Bath.

Allow yourself to sink into this immersive, full-body mystical experience that uses sound to invite powerful therapeutic and restorative processes to nurture mind, body and soul. Simply sit or lie down with mats, blankets, and pillows and get comfy. After a few minutes of guided breathwork, the remainder of the session is filled with wonderous sounds and frequencies created by a variety of instruments including a Paiste Chiron gong, Chau gong, quartz crystal singing bowls, Himalayan singing bowls, drums, chimes and more! These healing instruments will promote deep relaxation, move energy, reduce stress, and rejuvenate you.
