Wild Mercy: The Wisdom of the Feminine

As the fierce and tender voice of the feminine rises around the world, we are gifted with renewed access to the women mystics and wisdom beings across the spiritual traditions, such as Teresa of Avila, Julian of Norwich, Mary Magdalene, Sophia, the Shekinah, Song of Songs, Rabia, Fatima, Tara, Quan Yin, Kali, and indigenous Mother goddesses. 

Join us at this Enlightening Retreat where we will engage in contemplative readings from these mystics, group reflections, and silent sits.

Together we will activate our collective feminine soul for the healing of our family, society, and shared planet.

This retreat is not just for women.
All genders will benefit from drinking from the
wellspring of feminine wisdom.

Enlightening retreats are for people who are committed to contemplative activism and long for more teaching to nourish their soul.

Retreatants gather for a combination of lecture, group reflection and contemplative prayer.

Enlightening retreats expand consciousness and invigorate participants to continue a life of contemplative activism.
