The Art of Being: A Women’s Retreat

About This Event

Limited to 13 people. RETREAT IS FULL.

Retreat Details:  Okay, goddesses. It’s time to kick off the stilettos, flats or Chaco’s and “do” as little as possible for 48 hours. The purpose of this two-night retreat is to unplug from the chaos of daily life and plug into yoga, art and nature. Take it easy. Meet new people. And, just “be.” Elohee, a Cherokee word meaning “Earth place”, will be our sanctuary from Friday afternoon until Sunday afternoon.


Choose to take the morning yoga class (or sleep in). Soak in the hot tub (or take a hike). Dive into the weekend’s art or photography projects (or read a book and get a massage). Or, simply sit on the back porch and watch the 100 ft waterfall – for two days! Do as much or as little as you choose. We’ll eat healthy, organic meals. Rest. Move. Breathe. Laugh. Play. Wear glitter. And soak up as much of the powerful, healing energy of the North Georgia Mountains as we can. The goal is to leave grounded, light, and full. And to make this one of the easiest and most fulfilling weekend getaways you’ve had in years.


What to bring: We will be staying in Thanksgiving House. The house, which backs up to a magical waterfall and hiking trail, is equipped with a full kitchen and sleeps 13. There is a small yoga room in the house so please bring a mat, outdoor shoes for hiking (optional), a bathing suit for the pond and hot tub, a couple of cool magazines for the art project and a small item for the community altar. You may also consider a good book, a journal, and a camera – there’s a lot to capture. There is an outdoor fire planned for Friday night so please bring something comfortable for an early October evening.
