Womyn's Meditation Retreat
Intimate, Quiet & Restorative
South Haven, Michigan
November 10-12, 2023
Private Invitation from Karina, (not publicly listed):
Sister, I've been dreaming of an intimate retreat on Lake Michigan for years, especially as things begin to cool and quiet down in the late fall. Seasonal depression has a peek in November for many people. Heading into the next election year creates another level of uneasiness in most of us. Gazing at open water is always healing for my nervous system. So, this is the year, I rented a six bedroom lake house for us to do a small meditation retreat.
This intimate retreat is for a small group of womyn to reset our nervous systems before the hustle and bustle of the holidays begins. We'll spend time in contemplative conversation and time in dedicated silence. We will meditate together and walk in nature mindfully. We'll build fires, soak in the hot tub, and do deep relaxation. We'll eat light vegetarian fair prepared by yogini, home-chef extraordinaire, Denise Miller. (If you have special dietary needs, you can bring and prepare your own food too.) Doesn't this sound like exactly what you need too?
Due to the room structure, same-sex couples, (or female friends willing to share a King size bed) will get the best price option. This is a full 48 hour retreat from 10am Friday to 10am Sunday, (leaving you Sunday to integrate at home gently).
Below is everything you need to know. Still have a question? Email me.
