Our Favorite Transformative Gatherings & Retreats for Women
June 1, 2019
At the moment, I’m not a woman, but these gatherings & retreats for women make me wish I were. The more I see women connecting with other women, sharing in ritual, sharing in tradition, sharing in learning, the more I know how important it is for all of us to do the same. Women coming together is not only essential for the growth of the individual but for healing the earth for generations to come and for the inspiration for both women and men to seek out safe and powerful opportunities to cultivate their own understanding of themselves and in turn the sacred earth. Spread the love by joining one of these retreats and sharing this post!

Spirit Weavers is a five day celebration of cultures past which represented basic human skills to ensure the survival of the body and the soul. Fermenting foods, weaving and dying fabrics, creating ceremony, sharing tea, and making plant medicines- singing songs, together as a community- these were the common knowledge ways and part of the simple pleasures of a life lived in balance and in harmony with nature. Let us gather together as Women and share our skills in remembrance of the beauty path and an honoring of our Ancestors.

Welcome to the Morocco Wild Feminine Women’s Retreat:
We’ve teamed up with Wild Feminine Rising to create of a once in a lifetime experience in one of the most inspiring places on earth. Join us on an immersion in which we will dive into the depths of the hidden territories within. Through dynamic meditations, dance, yoga, singing, partner work, deep inquiry and reflections we will begin to understand our inner landscapes so that as women, we can collectively rise.
Morocco is the perfect place, not only because of its rich and inspiring culture, but also because here you can practice reclaiming your space in the world by being so fully you, held by a group of women, in a place that is challenging for women to travel alone in.
We will share seven days of shedding what is no longer needed, gathering the support to continue forward as powerful women and witnessing ourselves and other sisters in our transformation. WILD to us means living in the natural state, dancing with the rhythms of nature and connected to the cycles of the moon. It means deeply listening to the messages of our bodies and honoring them fully and completely. It means learning our boundaries, our ‘yes’ and ‘no’ and standing firmly within them like a tree rooted in the Earth. This immersion reconnects YOU to the authentic, raw truth that lives inside your heart, your gut, and in the womb of every woman.
Yes we chose Thanksgiving week because wanted to offer an alternative for people that don’t want to celebrate Thanksgiving because of it’s implications toward the native peoples of America. We know it’s the only time a lot of you get to see family, and we are family people, so we get it, no judgement, just another beautiful option.

Join us for our 5th annual Shakti Sanctuary Women’s Retreats! This year we are offering two unique opportunities to connect, with each retreat catering to the reflection and rejuvenation of one’s inner-self. The first is in the tranquil west-coast beach town of Raglan during New Zealand’s summertime. The second will be held near the beautiful beaches of Costa Rica, in the supernatural jungle of Playa Negra.
We invite you to a pilgrimage to the Sacred Mountain, a journey of remembrance and worship of the Wild Mother through your own forms. A deep in-the-body communion with the feminine mysteries by inhabiting your own wild nature and tuning into to the body-to-body guidance of the mountain, its waters, animals, meadows and crisp skies.
The body of mountain breathing alive in the body of woman.
A quiet, deep, and timeless communion between the sensuous mountain and the woman who has come to remember herself in the mountain’s embrace.
Mountain and woman, body to body, the landscapes merging, calling the wild soul back to these bones, veins, and hips.

A week of self exploration and togetherness in the heart of Sri Lanka. Combining movement, meditation, restoration, creative expression, delicious nourishing vegan food, a beautiful environment and connection to mother nature, as well as other sacred sisters
We will explore practices that allow us to access our most aligned, vibrant selves and support a community of self-love and nourishment.
We are devoted to holding sacred space where women are deeply nourished, celebrated, and supported. We believe there is no greater contribution to the world than a woman that feels comfortable and confident in Her Body and Spirit
This is not your average yoga retreat. Why? Because we believe retreat is less about escape and more about intentional destination. We invite you to join a magical group of womxyn for 5 days and 4 nights of RADICAL SELF CARE. We live in a time that commands much of us energetically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically. Our belief is that engaging in a time of RADICAL SELF CARE is a deeply personal act. This retreat is about plugging in differently so that each individual can show up in their lives and in their community with intentionality, embodied grace, awareness and two feet rooted to the Earth.
Against the beautiful backdrop of the Catskill Mountains, you will venture inward while adventuring outward. You’ll reconnect with the elements while hiking, learning to forage, connecting with local farmers and artisans, bathing in the cleansing waters of the Willowemoc Creek and nearby lakes. You’ll relax and recharge in the wood-fired sauna, dine under the stars and laugh by the fire. We will offer opportunities for both time with the group and time for individual activities and self care in whatever way you see fit. It’s all about balance, after all.
Yoga practices will be both invigorating and restorative, and will be accessible to all levels and bodies. Even our yoga mats will adventure as we find ourselves practicing riverside, lakeside and in a beautifully restored barn. Some evenings we will close with a gentle and restorative yoga nidra practice, an opportunity to explore the spaces we often try to fill with “doing things”, and how to respond to the call to slow down, tune in, and restore. This yogic “sleep” is a perfect way to close each day.
Join Shae on this rich sensual experience, where all women from all ages, cultures, walks of life and each with their own personal intention, come together to connect to the wisdom that our body knows.
To remember the truth that our true power and pleasure is rooted in our feminine energy. There is nothing to ‘find’ or ‘create’ or even ‘fix’ – we need only to CLAIM her. This is an experience of coming back to our natural essence.
Through culture, society, pace of life, and being in a constant state of giving and doing, we become disconnected from the things that light us up, fuel our feminine flame, and ignite our ability to experience pleasure in life.
Discover the natural intuitive essence within that knows how to return to this wisdom, whilst feeling a deep sense of rest and rejuvenation.
We seek the love outside of us – through people, relationships, and other forms of ‘filling up’ to try to feel whole again. If you’ve experienced this yourself, you’ll know that it doesn’t last. That ultimately, the person, thing or situation isn’t able to keep filling us, and we are left a little numb to life, pleasure, play and passion.
So how can we come home to our essence? Through claiming ourselves. Learn how to hold your own heart, fill your own soul and dance in the delight of being who you are. We’ll dance, connect, move, meditate, eat, walk, share and rest.
