We invite you to join us for the second annual Gathered Women’s Retreat. This year’s theme is Finding our Belonging
We are offering a day to connect with yourself at a deep and authentic level, while also connecting with like-minded sisters.
This is a day to be seen and understood by a supportive community so that you can more clearly see yourself and all your greatness.
This is a day when there is room in your life and in your heart to be supported and inspired.
This is a day for you to give yourself the loving care you give to so many others.
This is a day to belong to yourself among others.
Through mindfulness, yoga, art, massage, + nourishment, we will spend the day exploring what it means to belong—to ourselves, the earth, the community, and the world.
In the morning, we will use reflection to recognize our shadows, the parts of each of us that we wish weren’t so. By bringing these to light, we allow them to belong even if they are messy, loud, needy, and uncomfortable.
We’ll then use art to help us let go of something that no longer serves us—something that perhaps prevents us from achieving the state of belonging we desire.
In the afternoon, we will explore food and nourishment as a way to belong to the earth, each other, and our shared humanity—across the span of time and culture.
Through massage and the power of touch, we will grow in our belonging to the community.
And in the movement of yoga and power of our bodies we will remember what it is to belong to the universe as a whole.
We will conclude the day with reflection and space to solidify what we have learned and see next for ourselves.
There will be time for deep work and space for reflection and quiet.
Lunch, dinner, and snacks are included, provided by Annmarie Cantrell, owner of Cucina Verde (dairy-free, gluten-free, and meat-free options available).
