WISDOM IN THE WOODS

FALL EQUINOX RETREAT

SEPTEMBER 22-24, 2023

 

Do not try to save
the whole world
or do anything grandiose.
Instead, create
a clearing
in the dense forest
of your life
and wait there
patiently,
until the song
that is your life
falls into your own cupped hands
and you recognize and greet it.
Only then will you know
how to give yourself
to this world
so worthy of rescue. 

Clearing by Martha Postlewaite

SOLD OUT


The Autumn Equinox is a sacred time of transition where we experience equal parts daylight and darkness in our natural world and are invited to explore the play of light and dark in our individual lives as well. It's a time to harvest our inner wisdom as we  shift to cooler, more airy days and lean in to the opportunity for inward reflection and more intentional living.  

Join us for a nurturing, nourishing weekend in the woods of Deep Creek Maryland, where we will tend the heart, body, mind and spirit. We'll explore the shedding of old habits, beliefs and patterns, and consciously shine the light of awareness on systems, practices and rituals that support us in realizing our full capacity to live and love. 

This weekend of self-reflection, movement, meditation, and connection is an opportunity to contemplate personal growth, set intentions for the coming months, let go of what no longer serves you and to welcome new energy and experiences into your life.


RETREAT INCLUDES:
 
*Daily yoga, meditation (silent & guided), mindfulness, breathwork, and restorative sound practices as well as intentional circles and fireside chats to ground, center, connect and enliven energy. (full schedule TBD) 

* 2 nights lodging in an eco-friendly, sustainable, tiny house cabin at Deep Creek Lake amidst the hidden gems of nature and wildlife (shared cabins include 2 people per).


*Dinners provided (Fri/Sat) -Friday - healthy, organic catered meal, Saturday - dining out at nearby Moonglow restaurant with live music.
 
*Exploration of the True Nature Enneagram, which is based on essence and interrelatedness to help us cultivate presence, attention, authenticity and compassionate action. 

*Guided Waterfall hike to Swallow Falls along with free time exploring hiking trails on site.
 
*All Retreat participants receive discounts for  1:1 sessions with retreat facilitators for mentoring, coaching or attunement.  Limited spots available during retreat weekend.  Future dates can be scheduled.

*Retreat is limited to 8 people to preserve the intimate and conducive environment for meaningful interactions, personal growth, quiet inward reflection and focused learning experiences. 

COST $575 per person 

Additional Options:
