Through this gathering, we carve out time and space to be held by Mother Earth, tend to ourselves, discover new truths, uncover strengths, release habits that no longer serve, and connect with like-hearted women.

During the 4 day gathering, you’ll have the opportunity to "choose your own adventure.” With 20+ workshops from a wide variety of teachers based in the Midwest you get to curate your experience based on your needs, wants, and desires. If you feel like movement, there are opportunities for yoga, Qigong, and guided hiking.  If you feel like resting and relaxing, there are classes for that too!  You create your experience.  There is no way to do this wrong.  If you feel like sitting by the creek and journalling or going for a silent walk in the Fall colors go for it!

We welcome all ages, races and bodies.

Connecting to the Rhythms of Nature

Fall is a time for releasing and letting go.  Clearing. When we release we create space for new things to arise.  We'll gather in a secluded space at Whitewater State Park.  A beautiful time of the year to explore nature in the Fall'll have access to miles of trails with views of creeks and limestone bluffs. Classes will take place outside or in the lodge. Fun fact: Whitewater State Park is known for its lack of mosquitoes!  


We care about how our food is sourced.  We use 98% organic or local ingredients.  Meals are vegetarian with vegan and gluten free options. All meals are included from Thursday evening to Sunday morning. If you're not sure if the meals will work for you contact us BEFORE you register.
