The Wild Winter Women's Retreat

A respite like no other, with relationships for a lifetime

Friday, January 13th 6:00 pm - Sunday, January 15th 10:00 am

Lava Hot Springs, Idaho

Nourish yourself deeply within a community of open-hearted women.

Together, we will embark on a weekend Resiliency Field Trip into a snowy escape, a quiet space for mind, body and soul to root for the coming rise.

We will be still, and also play, as a tribe in this mountain oasis.

"Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean." - John Muir
