August Day Retreats at Bethel Road

Right now, August 30 is full.  I’ve had some interest though, so please contact me directly if you would like to retreat here in September…with four women, we can add an additional date…
August Day Retreats at Bethel Road: Alchemy, Action & Abundance

Day Retreats at Bethel Road?  YES!  The beauty and peacefulness of this place is proven, how blessed we are to luxuriate in the views, the breezes and the endless open sky.  Toss in a moo or two and the sweet sisterhood of women gathering and there is no denying that magic HAPPENS.

I have chosen three (now 2!) dates in August to welcome you here to West Winds Farm for a day of rest, renewal, reflection and revelry!  Each retreat will be limited to 5 guests to assure both social distancing and intimate connection.  Registration open now to encourage YOUR commitment to our work together.

Whether your true and essential purpose now (in the days of many questions) is to finally love yourself, heal your trauma, bolster your relationships and communities, step up as an activist or take the necessary rest and renewal your body and soul crave, my programs will meet you where you are.
It is my promise and vow to you to continue to hold space for each singular evolution of Spirit.

August, and Abundantly So:  The Call to Celebrate The Goddess As Earth Mother
Sunday, August 2, 2020  9am-4:30pm {sold out}
August 2 marks the day after Lammas, the celebration of the first Grain Harvest, a time for gathering in and giving thanks for abundance.  The Goddess is in Her aspect as Grain Mother, Harvest Mother, Harvest Queen, Earth Mother, Ceres and Demeter. Demeter, as Corn Mother, represents the ripe corn of this year’s harvest and Her daughter Persephone represents the grain – the seed which drops back deep into the dark earth, hidden throughout the winter, to re-appear in the spring as new growth. This is the deep core meaning of Lammas:  the fullness and fulfillment of the present harvest already holds at its very heart the seed of all future harvest.  So we gather to celebrate and honor the generous glory of this life…unwinding scarcity and struggle and reveling in what is already present.  Ah, to paint, to laugh, to discover and to reap the harvest of countless moments of beauty and astonishment together!  Ah, yes!  Aho!

Right Action:  A Call to Your Unique Purpose

There’s no turning back now.  And you are needed, each of us is needed.  Let’s unpack the construct that we are AT SOURCE in our lives, with powerful agency to seed our futures from our deepest, heartfelt longing.  It’s easy to become distracted, to fret that life is happening to us, and at breakneck speed to boot.  So let’s slow it down and discover our role as co-creator with a benevolent Universe.  The wheel of time is about to turn…let’s set a course born of our own authority that we can look back on with pride and satisfaction.  I don’t think legacy is too fancy a word to focus our energy on.  What kind of ancestor will you become at the behest of your highest self?

Each retreat will include yoga (both invigorating and restorative), workshops, ceremony, maker’s space and time to simply BE.  The day will be spent outdoors in nature at our beautiful sanctuary on Bethel Road.  Each retreat will be held rain or shine, with ample space under cover in the Love Shack and on the front porch.  (Considerations regarding severe weather will be made in the days leading up to the retreat, though I trust Mother Nature to smile upon us!)  It’s too early as well to make a decision about our midday meal given the continuing uncertainty surrounding the pandemic, though I envision one of our professional cooks (Tamara and Amber) providing the usual deliciousness at an additional cost.  In a pinch we can each bring a picnic, YOGI style:)

The full cost of each day retreat is $167.

Remember, spaces actually are limited!  You know this is right for you.  Get it while it’s hot.
