Women's Campout Retreat

A weekend of self reflection and connection with other women

August 18th-20th

We spend so much of our time striving and building what's next, it can feel like we are constantly pushing and struggling to force our dreams to happen. We have read so many books and attended so many trainings to learn the new technique that will make our life successful.


This weekend takes a more nurturing pace, it is about connection, and inner action; building our sense of faith and deepening our awareness of our ever present connection with All That Is. 


Ernest Holmes says, “Your endeavor is not to locate or awaken the activity of the Law, it is, rather, to become aware of this Presence and of Its activity flowing through you. If the Law operates automatically, then you do not coerce, concentrate or compel it.”


Surrounded by a beautifully wooded relaxed setting and supported by an intimate group of women, we can open ourselves up to feeling the power and peace that our connection with Source can bring. With plenty of time to relax and delicious nourishing food you will have time to really connect with your Inner Divine and build lifelong friendships. You will leave a different woman.


We will use Ernest Holmes’ book, This Thing Called You, to give us structure as we clarify our relationship with the spiritual Laws he describes as; Faith, Creation, Multiplicity, Life, Identity, Mind, Love, and Perfect Action.
