Women's Fall Equinox Healing Retreat

The Autumn Equinox is a rich time for reflection and renewal—a time to store summer’s sweetness in our body and soul, and nurture intentions for the season to come. During this day-long retreat, we will relax into our feminine rhythms through ritual and deep rest practices, receive nourishment from the earth and each other, and honor all we have birthed, learned, and let go of in preparation for winter. With the guidance and support of three diverse facilitators, —Carrie Grossman, Julie Kunz, and Pooja Prema—we’ll invoke the healing wisdom of the elements, imbibe in the medicine of herbs and flowers, and experience the alchemy of our voices and breath to support, nourish, and sustain us in the dark months to come.
