Women who want to feel more alive, joyful, and connected in pursuit of their soul’s purpose are often over burdened with day-to-day responsibilities to the deeper currents that can guide and enrich their lives. EarthRise Retreat Center at the Institute of Noetic Sciences is hosting a women-only “time-out” retreat weekend April 21 and 22, 2012, for women to gather at a collective well of wisdom, community, caring, and fun where they can attend to their soul’s purpose.
A Woman’s Time-Out weekend will be lead by psychologist and spiritual educator Joan Borysenko and Karen Drucker, musician, author, and teacher. During the retreat, women will learn to get rid of messages of guilt and self-attack, to have fun while being productive and centered, and to develop a personal spiritual practice than can include sacred rituals and chants. Participants also will learn to optimize health and well-being by understanding the four quadrants of the feminine life cycle as well as simply singing, connecting with each other, and laughing.
Early bird registration for the workshop is $269 available through March 26, 2012. Thereafter, the regular fee is $289. Fees include the program and four freshly prepared meals. Onsite lodging is $75 per person per night for a shared room or $99 per night for a single room. For more information and to register, visit the EarthRise registration page or call Jan Fischer at 707-779-8202
