STAY TUNED FOR SPRING DATES 2018

This retreat is designed for women who refuse to wait any longer to sink into a joyful connection to nature, reigniting a love of the moment, a sensory reawakening, and a blissful immersion in quiet, peaceful wilderness.

“There is a love of wild Nature in everybody, an ancient mother-love, ever showing itself whether recognized or not, and however covered by cares and duties”

~ John Muir

We will be backpacking into the Ojai backcountry a short distance – 2 to 4 miles, and camping. Activities include sensory awareness, deepening connection, skills such as fire making, whittling, cordage, song, stories and plenty of freedom for socializing and alone time. Breathing, laughing, playing, and lots and lots of fun in a beautiful setting. Delicious meals are provided, but everyone helps carrying and basic prep. No experience required.

GEAR NEEDED: Sleeping bag (30 degree – not cloth), sleeping pad, backpack, optional tent (1 – 2 person – we share tents)
