Drinking from the Inner River: A Women’s Meditation Retreat in Nature

With Anne Cushman and Erin Treat

July 15 - 19, 2017

Nourish your wild spirit and reconnect with your own deepest nature in an embodied meditation retreat specifically designed to honor the unique needs and treasures of a woman’s journey.  In the company of rushing rivers, clear ponds, abundant wildlife, and ancient ponderosa pines, we’ll reunite with our bodies, our hearts, and our own innate wholeness, compassion, and intuitive wisdom.

In a circle of women held within the intimate container of silent retreat, we’ll deepen into an approach to meditative practice that honors the creative, intuitive, embodied, and relational dimensions of a woman’s life.

Each day will include vipassana-style sitting and walking meditation; gentle, mindful yoga or other body-based practices; nature explorations; mandala drawing; dharma reflections; and community connection and sharing.
