Embodied, Empowered, and Awake: A Women's Meditation Retreat

How do we live balanced, embodied, meaningful lives amid the complexities of our lives as contemporary women? How do we meet our ever-changing bodies with acceptance, love, and a sense of humor? How do we respond wisely to our current social and environmental realities that call for our unique contribution?

We all need nourishing spaces to slow down and listen to the wisdom of our bodies-so we can grow into the wise, wild, present, and joyful women that the world desperately needs. Join a diverse circle of women for a silent retreat that integrates a seamless flow of mindfulness meditation in both movement and in stillness. We will consciously create a nourishing space for women of all races, sizes, ages, sexual identities, religions and classes to dive into the depths of our individual and collective rivers. We'll honor the lineages of awakened women as we sit and move in a circle of sisters, grandmothers, mothers, and daughters.
