Wild Woman* Gathering

September 22-24, 2017

Need Some Time in Nature?

Want to Deepen Your Relationship with the Land?

Longing for What is Raw and Real and Wild?

Come join the Women of Windward for a weekend of relaxation,
creative exploration, dancing under the stars and time together with the land!

*Refers to any person who finds personal meaning in identifying as a wild woman.

We are blessed to be connected with so many amazing women and we want to share more time with you in this special forest we call home! What better way to celebrate the Fall Equinox -- the drawing down of summer abundance, grounding in the autumn harvest -- than by ripening the relationships with the women who have enlivened this forest all summer long!

RSVP & Come Join Us!


What to Expect

We will be co-creating a loosely structured space that invites each of us to bring our whole and wild selves, to soften into our animal bodies, to express our ecstatic joys and heartfelt sorrows, to simply be together in gratitude and celebration.

We will be sharing facilitation throughout the weekend, supporting each other as we offer our passions for all to enjoy. Let us know during online registration if you are excited about sharing a practice, making an offering or leading an activity for the group during the weekend.

Food

Lunches and Dinners will be potluck style. We ask that each person bring one main dish to feed 10 people and 2 snacks to share.

We will offer simple breakfasts of seasonal fruit, granola, and yogurt. We invite you to bring additional items to compliment breakfast including your favorite teas, coffees, milks, jams, nuts or pastries.

Food is a gift and a necessity. By sharing dishes that have personal meaning to us, we will nourish our bodies along with our relationships. Perhaps you'd like to share a special family recipe or your favorite salad. Anything is okay! Please be sure to bring an ingredients list so those with allergies and sensitivies can choose accordingly.

We will have access to the event kitchen inlcuding pots, utensils, refridgerator, cookstoves, but not an oven, so please plan accordingly.

Accomodations

Tent and car camping will both be available.

The Adirondak will be available by reservation for True Friends and those with medical concerns. Please indicate in the registration form if you would like to reserve a bunk in the Adirondak.

Composting toilets, hot water showers and the hot tub will all be available.
