Goddess Retreats

Are you feeling a need to re-center and renew your spirit? Do you crave ceremony and community?  Are you ready to step into your feminine power and unfold the beauty that is your true nature?

Join me for a spiritual retreat.

One of my greatest joys is watching a woman transform before my eyes!  To sit in circle with you in a small intimate group, to do ceremony together, to delve into deep, liminal work is truly a gift.

Walking with the Goddess is an initiation into the heart of the ancient traditions, symbols and stories of the Divine Feminine. You’ll open a gateway to a depth of feminine wisdom and experience a powerful spiritual awakening.  Goddess will guide, protect and inspire you every day –  she’ll weave her magic in every part of your life.

Woman-Song explores the connection between Goddess and women.  We consider the role of women in our culture and cut through layers of limiting patterns and beliefs.  See yourself – and other women – as divine, powerful, creative beings possessing valuable skills and talents.  If you are looking for a breakthrough in life – in your job, as a mother, as a teacher, healer or artist – this work will be the catalyst.

The work we do reclaims an ancient, sacred past that belongs to us as women.

The material of these two courses dovetails together – but one is not a prerequisite for the other.

Women Reflecting the Divine Feminine

There is a long-forgotten, mystical past that includes the Goddess – a past where women held honored roles as priestesses, shamans, midwives, oracles, warriors and tribal leaders.  The Sacred Feminine was worshiped for thousands of years.  But, even now, her presence remains.  It is time to reclaim this past.

 Why a retreat?

A retreat allows you to pause and take a step back from your everyday life.  Away from distraction, you can focus on your own healing and spiritual growth.  You gift yourself time.  In a beautiful natural setting, you can listen to the voice of the Divine Feminine and to the whisperings of your own soul.

Our Retreat Location – a Cozy Inn in Michigan

The Inn at the Rustic Gate is one my favorite places to host a course.  The Inn is a green facility about seven miles from Big Rapids, Michigan (north of Grand Rapids).  Here, you are surrounded by 150 acres of woodlands, wetlands, rolling meadows, a lake and several small ponds.  A morning walk can bring you up close with herons, deer, woodpeckers, hawks, owls, beaver and other wildlife.  At night,  you can often hear the voices of loons or coyotes.  The land is truly healing and supports your growth and learning.

There is a large labyrinth on-site to walk.  And several hiking trails.   Afternoon breaks can be spent on the shady porch or a swing by the pond.  Enjoy the quiet meditation loft or the library filled with books.

Your private room is beautifully appointed to be restful and cozy.  Each room has a luxurious private bath.  Healthy gourmet meals are made with locally sourced ingredients and lovingly prepared by Chef Sharon, the inn’s resident chef.  Special dietary needs accommodated by request.
