Coming Home to Yourself: A Women’s Yoga, Meditation & Nature Retreat

Sara Avant Stover

May 20–22, 2022

Tuition $300 + 2 nights

Whether it’s through the barrage of pings from devices each day, personal challenges you’d rather not be facing, or the mounting stress of climate change and COVID, we’re being pulled out of our centers. Constantly.

This takes its toll. We become exhausted, overwhelmed, anxious, and uninspired. Taking a “time out” from your life to go on retreat and immerse yourself in nature, spiritual practice, and community is the sanest, most effective antidote to doing too much.

During this three-day women’s retreat, you’ll replenish your body, heart, and mind through spaciousness, quiet, yogic and dharmic teachings and practices, sisterhood, as well as ample time in nature. Each day will include periods of gentle guided yin and slow yoga; seated, walking, standing, and lying-down meditation; silence; dharma teachings and discussions; women’s circle practices; and time in nature.

Guided by the wisdom of the Buddha, the sensuality of the Goddess, and the unconditional love of the Divine Mother, you’ll settle your nervous system, ground deeply, and reconnect with what matters most to you.

For self-identified women of all ages & levels of yoga and meditation experience. Please bring your journal.

Please review our current COVID-19 policy before visiting SMC.
