Please closely read the following information regarding applying

for the 2019 Retreat for Mothers and Children.


We look forward to creating this sacred 'time out of time' with you and your children and to honoring the late summer in a meaningful, memorable and mysterious way. More than ever this retreat feels essential. Also essential is our ongoing commitment to creating access for all Mothering communities (all backgrounds, cultures, identities and countries of origin) 

in wilderness-based retreat work. We believe robust and diverse dialogues need to be cultivated to fortify the roots of resiliency, our individual and collective soul stamina

and the courage for the work of these times.


So, if this is the year for you and your child/children to be held in the embrace of this wilderness retreat at Ekone Ranch, please read the following information!
