You may know that my first Gaian Soul Retreat took place last September (and you can read all about it here). And you may know that it was a remarkable experience for me, as well as for the women who came to it from far and near. So remarkable, in fact, that I was persuaded to do it again in February, at our Gaian Soul Retreat: Brigid’s Feast.
Once again, I set my intention that the “just right” women will come. I’m thrilled that several of the women from last September are returning, and we have new women coming from Houston and from San Diego, as well as from our local area.
But there’s still room for more . . . perhaps you might be the next one to join us, and drink deeply from the sacred well of Nature, Spirit, Creativity and Community!
We’ll replenish and refresh ourselves with creativity, contemplation and community. We’ll connect with Mama Gaia as she awakens from hibernation, and align ourselves with the energy of Winter-Turning-to-Spring. We will welcome Brigid, the triple goddess of smithcraft (think transformation), healing, and creative inspiration. We will cleanse ourselves in her holy well, and be set ablaze by her creative fire. We will dedicate ourselves to our own true paths.
“Give yourself the gift of this time.”
Here’s what a few women said about our retreat last September:
“Joanna said the food would be good, but I wasn’t expecting … inspiring!” – Katherine S., New York City
“When I left, I felt energized and connected with a powerful group of women. A treasure, a filling of the well, and done so consciously, and with great love.” – Michele M., Lummi Island, WA
“The best part was meeting so many wonderful women, the camaraderie and genuine warmth. I would tell anyone that is questioning wether or not to come, to listen to their heart. If you truly are seeking a time of rest and rejuvenation, of quietness of spirit and an alignment with their souls’ inner voice, come. Give yourself the gift of this time.” - CrowsFoxes, Pennsylvania
Jen Louden, author of The Women’s Retreat Book, wrote:
A woman’s retreat springs from and is guided by her inner knowing. The intention of a retreat is not to change anything about you, it is to re-remember and burnish your divine connection to yourself, creating support and space to listen to and follow your own inner promptings. It is time to catch up with yourself, to ponder the state of your life, to ask important questions, and to rest.
If you’re feeling the tug to come, take a moment to close your eyes, connect with your inner wisdom, and reach down deep inside to discover if coming to this retreat is right for you. Because, just like in September, I know the exact right women are going to be there. I hope you’re one of them.
Please email me if you have any questions at all about the retreat. I’ll be happy to chat with you about it.
Big Hugs & Bright Blessings,
I invite you to consider what Mary Montayne from the Oregon coast urges you: “If you are drawn to attending, listen to your intuition and come. You are supposed to be there.”
