2023 WIlderness Retreat for

Mothers & Children

Remember who you wanted to be... by being in council with mothers and Mother earth

Memory is valuable for one thing, Astonishing: it brings dreams back. 

~ antonio machado    


SAY YES…  to the voice inside you that longs to come into deeper conversation with the wild world,

with your Soul’s story.  


Yes to your longing for slowing down and being in a

circle of sisters

and having your children with you, engaging in their own

wonder & play!


Yes to the unfolding Magic and Mystery of life.

What if our religion was each other.
If our practice was our life
If prayer, our words.
What if the temple was the earth
If forests were our church
If holy water - the rivers, lakes, and oceans.
What if meditation was our relationships
If the Teacher was life
If wisdom was self-knowledge.


If love was the center of our being.

by Ganga White

​Walk Slowly 

It only takes a reminder to breathe,
a moment to be still, and just like that,
something in me settles, softens, makes
space for imperfection. The harsh voice
of judgment drops to a whisper and I
remember again that life isn’t a relay
race; that we will all cross the finish
line; that waking up to life

is what we were born for.

As many times as I
forget, catch myself charging forward
without even knowing where I’m going,
that many times I can make the choice
to stop, to breathe, and be, and walk
slowly into the mystery.

by Danna Faulds

Grace is the path

Justice is the work

Love is the companion

Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry,

the philosophy which does not laugh

and the greatness which does not bow before children. 
    -Khalil Gibran
