ALL NEW RETREATS…Creating Sanctuary As Your Basecamp


It’s official…our mystical retreat on the Elk River in June ’23 was “THE BEST ONE YET”!
Truth be told, I think I feel that way every single time; so we know for sure that I love the body of work I am happily creating for our beautiful community.

So with the encouragement to build, be and share SANCTUARY ringing in my ears; and the joy of that reverberating too, it only follows that I am now buzzing with excitement to announce ALL NEW opportunities to escape and relax into sacred retreat!  Behold what awaits us in the near and far future…bright interfaces on our swirling, evolving timelines at which to insert sweet, healing, blissful memories…

October Witch’s Sacred Sleep Over (SOLD OUT)
Bowing Down to This Land Under the Blood Moon

October 27, 2023 @ 6:30pm – Oct 28 @ 2pm   ocean earth wind fire @ Bethel Road

No one ever wants to go home after moon circle!  We have laughingly dreamed of sleeping bags to slip into under the drowse of our caring connections and magical rememberings.  Well, now, at last, the dream is coming true!  Only the accommodations are way better than sleeping bags!

Arrive for Freya Moon Circle on Friday evening and stay the night for morning practice and ritual, then sup and spellcast over a revitalizing witch’s feast!  Sumptuous bedding awaits in our 4-person Bell Tent or in the farmhouse guest rooms.  We’ll keep the practices deep and devotional this time around, a no-frills dive into devotional recognition of how critically important it is for us to bow down to Gaia, hold each other and praise the Moon.  Each time we fill the voids and disturbances within us with togetherness, understanding and Grace, we make a lasting mark on our own psyches and on the heart blood of the collective.  Circling as one, we change the fabric of the Universe.  We practice, once again, for ourselves and for the greater good.

Call yourself witch or Goddess or Wild Woman or seeker or seer or healer…call yourself, simply, by your given name…regardless, we are the keepers of a benevolent power we are determined to harness and share.  Fly in on your broom…bring your drum and dancing shoes and be prepared to be heard and seen by La Luna and the night.

Tamara Sheen of Blue Egg Nourishment, my partner in reteating and our favorite cook, will be on hand to prepare a sumptuous Samhain Feast on Saturday morning!
This meal is available at $30 per person payable at the event.

When Winter’s Wonder Ices The River Over
Skating the Path of Eternity

January 25-28, 2024 Old Field Point/Elkton, MD 

When we invite the mysterious unknowables of this earthly existence into our lives, all becomes ventilated and open beyond our temporal worries and conflicts.  Mythic numerology tells us that 2024 is an 8 year…a year that when tipped on it’s side for another look reveals the path of eternity…an endless, wide open sky above and the vast rich depths of bedrock support below.

There are such beautiful, evocative correspondences associated with the number eight:
In Tarot, the major arcana Justice card!  Libra’s here-there star shine!  The Goddess Ma’at!  Our sushumna root of grounding!  Heaven’s sweep of possibility!

All are invitations to BALANCE, you see…a way to finally attest to our natural affinity for light and dark, masculine and feminine, found and lost, now and then.

We feel that January 1 is waaaaaay too soon to “begin again”, so join us towards the end of the month to explore what an 8 year might have in store for you.  We’ll hold Wheel of the Year Ceremony, practice our balance poses a lot (and fall down some too!), reflect on sources of imbalance in our lives; and perhaps most wonderful of all, cozy up together in furry throws by the wood-burning stove.  Expect candlelight and fairytales and steaming cups of soup and honeyed golden milk in abundance.

6 Guests max (4 SPOTS OPEN)
6 private rooms*  $956 per person
*IF You would like to share a room with your BFF or another agreeable guest, please contact me directly to arrange this at the reduced cost of $880 per person.
