This retreat is for women in midlife who are looking for tools for self-care, grief work, and self-compassion; or just an opportunity to slow down and feel the support of other women. We will explore mindfulness practices, walking, moving and sitting to drop deeper into our feminine voices and power. Whether you have a mindfulness practice or are curious to explore these tools more deeply, we will create a deeper circle of care and deep listening together.

For those of you who attended one of the last two years, you will find additional tools to continue your practices of self-compassion.  We will have add-on sessions in the evening and break-out small group practice periods for more in-depth discussion and focus.

In this weekend, we will uncover, share  and explore what we know about ourselves deep inside, that is always there for us—when we slow down and get quiet and tap into our own deep feminine wisdom.

“Donna created such a safe, loving space in which self-explorations supported our practices. Her creative bringing together of poetry and practices, nature and practices, community and small group connections was so heartfelt. The woman’s community was so beautifully built from her heart opening ours.” JB

“I was scared to attend this retreat —fearful of discovering something I did not want to acknowledge or face. I feel so blessed to have been given this weekend to connect with so many different spirits of beautiful women and move through that fear more. I can’t wait to see where these new connections take me!” KV

“This was a new experience for me! I’m good around people and strangers but the depth of the relationships that I developed with fellow retreaters was heartwarming, encouraging, and inspiring. It allowed me to go deeper in my search for wholeness and compassion for myself and others. I believe compassion will carry me further in this life than I knew previously.” RN

“The Woman’s Mindfulness Retreat with Donna was an amazing and powerful experience. She created a safe place for us to go into ourselves and be vulnerable with each other. She had carefully planned activities that we gradually and gently were able to go deeper and deeper. In only three and a half days we felt so bonded as a community! I highly recommend a retreat with Donna.” SS

“This retreat has opened my heart to myself and the other women on their journeys. I had not attended a retreat before, so I did not know what to expect. I found acceptance, kindness, caring for myself as well as from others. I’ve only known these amazing women for four days! The community and connectedness is powerful and I hope carries me on afterwards.” AK
