Stop. Rest. Simply Be. Recenter. Take stock. Take time to honor what feels deeply meaningful to your soul.

Bathe in silence, beauty, and serenity. Let the sacred circle of women and the beauty of nature heal and renew you.


Paradoxically, we can’t be effective in the world unless we periodically allow ourselves to stop, rest and simply be. In slowing down, we rediscover ourselves. False beliefs and habits fall by the wayside as our true self emerges reborn and renewed. We remember, then, what makes us truly happy and we honor what feels deeply meaningful and congruent with the truth of our soul.

Give yourself the gift of retreating, taking time to slow down, re-center and take stock. Let yourself be bathed in silence, beauty and serenity. Spend the afternoons relaxing, napping, getting a massage or hiking amidst the breathtaking scenery of the Fingerlakes.

Experience the art and gift of Circlework, which transforms circle gatherings into true sanctuary spaces and havens of safety, support and blessing. The process will include movement, silence, storytelling, ritual and other elements. Read more about Circlework here.
