Birthing Yourself into the Second Half of Life

A retreat for those considering what comes next.

Birthing Yourself Back Home

A retreat for female U.S. Military veterans separating from service.

Our retreat experiences bring together the soulful perspective of depth psychology, the ceremony of rite of passage experiences, and the rich metaphor found in both myth and circle practice. These perspectives, ceremonies and practices have birthed us personally through our own experiences of loss and renewal. Our signature retreats are eight days in length, and held in the embrace of the natural world. Each group creates a base camp that centers their experience, with daily group gatherings, partnered explorations, and solo reflections. Our retreat experiences focus on creating a relationship with loss, transition, and life. They honor what has come before, and prepare for what is to be. Each retreat is led by experienced facilitators who have journeyed through their own encounters of loss and renewal, women who have taken on the role of guiding those still rising from the ashes.
