Chaos, isolation, collective trauma, walking the underworld: the last few years have been a lot. It's time to gather, harvest the wisdom of the walk and return to ourselves through nourishment, adventure, and grounded, earth-honoring community. Together, we'll celebrate our EMERGENCE.
Is this retreat only for women?
This retreat is for women and femmes, as it's focused on witnessing and supported shared experiences impacting woman-identifying folk. Anyone identifying as woman, or sharing experiences across the spectrum of womanhood, including transgender, non-gender conforming, and non-binary folks, is welcome to attend. We are committed to upholding a bigotry-free and anti-racist space in which the intersectionality of oppressive systems (internal and external) is recognized and diverse backgrounds, opinions, and perspectives are celebrated.
What is the retreat refund policy?
A $500 deposit is non-refundable. If you pay in full, $500 of the total balance is non-refundable. Cancellations before June 15, 2023 will receive a full refund, less $500 deposit. Cancellations after June 16, 2023, are non-refundable, due to our payment terms with venue and support staff. Because of these terms, we require you to purchase CFAR (cancel for any reason) travel insurance to protect your investment in this retreat, as well as to provide coverage for any unplanned interruptions or medical emergencies.
What does the travel insurance policy need to cover?
The policy needs to cover your expenditures for the trip (including retreat cost, airfare, and any other planned expenses). It also should provide medical coverage and repatriation, in case of medical emergency. We recommend Travelex insurance. Many travel insurance companies require you to purchase within a certain amount of time from paying for your trip, so please check carefully the requirements named through the insurance provider.

Is this a plant medicine retreat?
This event will not contain a guided plant medicine component, but if you’re looking for that kind of retreat, please join the wait list here. This retreat will offer breathwork, ritual, ceremony, sound healing and rites of passage to support your well-being and personal intentions towards healing.
This event is also pleasure-oriented and substance-tolerant. Whether you choose to enjoy a glass of wine, smoke a joint, or otherwise (safely) shift consciousness to enhance your experience, you are supported here - though we reserve the right to address any issues that may arise from abuse of mind altering substances, should they impact the health of safety of the group.
Do I need a passport?
Anyone traveling from outside the European Union will need to have a valid passport and Schengen visa in order to attend this retreat. Obtaining a passport can take time, so please ensure you can meet this requirement before registering.
