Wild Women’s Retreat

Creating a Wisdom Council

With LeeAnn Heinbaugh, Journeys in Living

When:  May 17-21, 2023 (6 pm Wednesday – 11 am Sunday)
Where: Woodstock, Vermont
Who:     Max 8-10 Wonderful Women

Wildness is about freedom, passion, & embracing our innate nature as women.

This retreat was originally scheduled for the fall of 2020. I am beyond happy that we can finally open ourselves and gather again!

The labyrinth at Leading Fields

So many women, including me, talk about how we yearn for time with other women. Hold a deep desire to explore our soulful selves, know a deeper union with the stories we live by, and to embrace more of the flowering freedom that comes in living our truest natures.

I am blessed to live in a culture (Tzu’tujil Maya of Guatemala) that taught me about Women’s Councils. They are sacred space where our secrets and truths are held in honor, celebration, and compassion.

And this is what we’ll create together in the amazing space that is Leading Fields. This land is both beautiful and sacred.

The perfect place for us to create an abundance of wonderful stuff:

  • Wise Women’s Council – Sharing, learning, healing, and growing our innate wisdom with each other.
  • Explore – Journaling, meditation, Tarot, and some rest time.
  • Sacred Tradition – I’ll share bits of the Maya Traditions and practices that can be lived in the Modern World. We’ll invite you all to share your own, creating a sacred little “cauldron” of wisdoms we share.
  • Nature and Nurturing – walk the labyrinth and soak in the beautiful grounds.
  • Venture into Woodstock – See the lovely town and enjoy a night (or two) out for dinner. An amazing food scene.
  • Closing Ceremony – I’ll bring wonderful candles and other offerings from here in Guatemala and the Maya Tzu’tujil Traditions for our ritual.

And, as always, we will have lots of fun!!
