2023 WIlderness Retreat for
Mothers & Children
12th Annual Retreat
August 9 - 13, 2023
THIS RETREAT IS FOR MOTHERS AND THEIR CHILDREN!
WE ARE BEST SUITED TO SERVE CHILDREN WHO ARE BETWEEN THE AGES OF 6-13*
This retreat is a soul-centric, wilderness retreat that offers a unique braid of programming. One strand is the Mother’s program, guided by Gigi and Kassey, informed by nature-based exploration in conversation with the wild world, Council and Mirroring practices and Womxn's Ways of Knowing & Ceremony.
The children's program is a second strand, which provides an immersion into nature and stoking their sense of wonder, wildness and play. The children are guided by fun and soulful folks that come from various backgrounds.
The center and interlacing strand is the depth and beauty of community that we all co-create through the week together.
This wilderness retreat will include some mysterious variation of the following: Diving into Deep Heart Space Individually and as a Community, Sacred Time on Sacred Land, Mother’s Council, Planned & Spontaneous Ritual, Children’s Exploration, Play & Learning, Nourishing the Mother & Child Bond, Community Meals, Horseback Riding (additional cost to Ekone), Camping, Delicious Food made with Love by Ekone Staff in the Yummy Tummy, Evening Campfire & Songs, Vast Night Skies, and More...
*IF your child is not in the 6-13 yo age range and you are longing to come please do send us a note to see what is possible.
**For 2023, we will be welcoming Staff back to retreat while still holding a more spacious container that supports moving slowly, play, council, wanders on/with the land, connection and depth within community.**
