This half-day retreat on Sunday, June 6 will be an opportunity to practice the art of celebration as summer expresses itself in all its fullness. We will explore the beauty and radiance around and within us, while also revelling in the impermanence of all things.

In these times, the notion of celebration can feel radical. Yet, celebration is an act of renewal, and asks that we lean not only into beauty, growth and expansion, but also into the cycles that bring contraction, dissolution, and letting go. As we tend the cycles of the seasons, we will experience our own ‘summering’ and the renewal this brings forward, a welcome gift for ourselves and all those we encounter.



RENEWAL: a one-day Women's Ritual of Renewal. Summer 2021.

Who this program is for:

These seasonal rituals are for all self-identified women who:

  • Yearn to connect to their deepest intentions and innermost selves
  • Long for practices to restore, nurture, and enliven
  • Want to gather with a community of other wholehearted women
  • Need a break from the routines and busyness of daily life
  • Are excited (and possibly fearful) about the potency of their aliveness


We strive to create a brave space that welcomes everyone's full uniqueness as well as attuned compassion for others. We aim to create a welcoming community of practice that includes diversity of race, class, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religious affiliation, nationality, and more.


Half day retreat overview:
