Our Offering for 2022
This is a retreat for the Adventurous Soul.
For the One who is at home with branches in her hair, dirt under her finger nails and the wild earth beneath her feet.
It's for the One who longs to sleep in a tent amongst the trees, under the star filled sky,
be waken by the song birds in the morning, and eat mindfully prepared food
that nourishes the spirit, body and mind, while sitting in the sun with sisters all around.
The One whose desire is to sit in sacred circle with other women, and gather medicine for her journey earth side.
This retreat is for the Womxn who says yes to the wild, to the elements, and to the mystery within and around her.
We welcome you!
Beginning Wednesday 5pm-7pm - July 20th, 2022
Ending 9am-11am - July 25th, 2022
We will be spending 5 nights on The Land now known as The Sumas Prairie, in Abbotsford, B.C.
This prairie, formally a lake, was Indigenous land belonging to
The People from Sumas/The Sumas Nation.
'The People from Sumas' in the Sto:lo language is Pepa:thxetel.
The Sumas First Nation is Sema:th part of the Sto:lo Nation.
We acknowledge and recognize this nation and the land that was once theirs.
Because of this we gather not only for ourselves but also to honour the land,
to listen to the stories on the winds and offer healing to a place
that once held vast water and tended to the living, both human and animal alike.
We do this by walking The Medicine Wheel; entering each day in a new direction, a new season,
in which to meet and gather the elements, the wisdom, the medicine
and engage in our own intrinsic wisdom
and the Wisdom of The Land on which we gather,
