Retreats & Events

 Join Our Community



November 3rd to 5th, 2017 at Rhythmwood.

Friday 7pm to Sunday 3pm



With movement facilitators Wendy Roman & Elisha MacMillan.











You’re invited to...

Spend a weekend connecting to the rhythms and instincts of your wild wisdom. We pause, breathe and be with our wise bodies. We turn our listening hearts to the forest, the waters, the elements and our animal spirit friends.

Through movement we drop further into our body wisdom. The noise of the outside world fades and the voice of our instincts is audible. We dance with Her. She who is in tune with her own body and the body of the earth. She who is connected to the wisdom of all women. She who carves sacred time for herself, gathering with like-minded women. Here we draw on the wisdom of all women, the Divine Feminine, to nourish the sacred waters of Life

Through dancing, drumming, creative expression, witnessing and being seen, we share this time together.
