Sara Avant Stover

January 5–8, 2023

Tuition $450 + 3 nights

The new year is a potent time to pause, vision, and create your life from your depths. Yet, finding the space we need to do this can be nearly impossible in the world today. Within a supportive women’s circle, you’ll have the time and space you need to review the past year’s lessons, forgive and release what you no longer need to carry forward, and vision what you most want to create in the year ahead.

During this four-day women’s retreat, you’ll replenish your body, heart, and mind through spaciousness, quiet, yogic and dharmic teachings and practices, sisterhood, self-therapy and inquiry through Internal Family Systems (IFS), as well as 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.

Using the wisdom of the Buddha, the sensuality of the Goddess, the unconditional love of the Divine Mother, and cutting-edge psychotherapeutic protocols from Internal Family Systems (IFS), you’ll fill your inner well, while releasing the old and midwifing in the new. Get support with step into 2023 clear, empowered, and refreshed!

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