Wildfire Women’s Retreat

Event Overview

Weaving Sacred Space

We invite you to join a small group of women* for three days in a beautiful, intimate setting on communally stewarded land.  Amongst wild-flowered meadows, rocky outcroppings, and mixed evergreen and aspen forest, we’ll work through the spiral of the Work that Reconnects to come into deeper relationship with ourselves, co-retreatants, and the natural world.

OVERVIEW

Just as the aspen had turned golden in the autumn of 2020, the Lefthand wildfire danced through the beautiful piece of earth we steward.  Her exact choreography is unknown, but when she was finished, she left little remaining of the stage.  In her wake was what felt like the charred landscape of the moon.  We were devastated.

The natural process of healing and growth that happens in an ecosystem post fire is nothing short of a spiritual teaching.  In the initial phase, the fire offered us a pause, a long exhale, a potent moment of grief and reflection.  It initiated intentional conversations, slow wanderings and deep listening.  All this happened while microorganisms, fungal networks, and awakening seeds were hard at work beneath the winter snow.  When spring emerged, and in the seasons that followed, she gifted us with the honor of witnessing the slow and steady rebirth of this land. She is the storyteller of regeneration and interconnection, offering an alternative to our current story of separation.  As she skillfully reweaves her web, an opportunity emerges to question our species’ trend towards heightened consumerism, rapid urbanization, habitat destruction and all the other components of ecological unraveling that we contribute to.  In witnessing the earth’s natural process of healing we were guided along the journey of the spiral.

It is to this thriving land, in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, that we invite you to gather in a community of like-minded women* to be part of the story of reweaving and resilience that she offers us. Together we will sit and move in witness to the dance of our own wildfire and its transformative potential.  What is our role in the collective story?  What needs tending?  What seeds need watering?  What needs to be let go?  Let us come into a circle of deep connection, as vital members of our ecosystem, embracing and trusting the ever-changing landscape of our internal and external worlds.

*Any person who is female-identifying is welcome
