About This Event

Due to high demand, we are offering a second chance to participate in one of our most popular and profound programs before we say, “Good-bye” to 2018.

Are you hungry for a safe place to connect, open up and get grounded so that you can end this year on a high note? 

Come together with fellow women to celebrate our innate strength, wisdom, and compassion. We will celebrate the importance of connecting with girlfriends and remember all the beautiful parts of being a woman.  This time is to reconnect to the sacred feminine and cultivate a community of sisterhood and solidarity through deep listening, laughter, self-care, and ceremony.  This retreat is for you if you love women, miss your sisters, or want to deepen your relationship with the feminine, soft, sexy, strong, surrendered parts of yourself.

These yoga classes are designed for all levels, incorporating breathing, stretching, and fluid movements.  The postures and techniques help to stabilize and calm the nervous system, strengthen muscles, and tone the organs, bringing more ease and circulation throughout the body. You can expect to feel more relaxed, aware, harmonized, and energized from this yoga practice.



This meditation is designed to attune to all of your senses to tap in to the present moment and to all that is arising. We will be sitting, breathing, and visualizing to cultivate deeper awareness.



This class will be a gentle lunar flow, inspired by the moon and and exploration of everything she represents: intuition, creation, water, sacred feminine, sensual, primal, playful, loving, mysterious, full, deep, and dark. We will release, surrender, melt, allowing our intuition to guide us. Be wildly devoted, and take refuge in this devotion. Om Chandraya Namaha.



Open up your heart, voice, body, and mind through chanting!  Experience a musical devotional gathering as traditionally practiced in India and now throughout the world.  Kirtan includes repetitions of call & response singing of a sacred mantra. Gloria will lead songs with her voice and harmonium and assist us in a joyful letting go.



Body Bliss is a sensual movement practice for women that lays the foundation for being more connected to your body, sensuality, intuition, and the realms of nature & the Goddess.  We use mindful sense-based movement and breath, the help the emotional, physical, and energy bodies release tension and move beyond layers of the conditioned mind. From a ground of relaxation and pleasure, we can enter into a space where our movement becomes guided by a deeper wisdom.



Set your inner goddess free with yoga, movement, and dance! Connect with all the chakras, shakti energy, and feel the flow of life throughout your entire body.  This session will include guided breathing, visualization, freestyle forms, and lots of fun and play!



Tune in to your inner dialogue and gain new tools to reframe, rethink, and reword the script of your life.  Discover fresh and inspiring new ways to see yourself, love yourself, and manifest the life you want.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

It would my first vacation in the mountains. I think getting away and beginning a new routine would be good for me and a friend. Dianne
