Wise Women Retreat

Sorry guys, But this event is FOR WOMEN ONLY!!!

Women of all ages are invited to come out to Toad Song Farm for a time to recharge and renew balance to the body, mind and spirit.  Leave the hustle and bustle of modern life behind and embrace your primitive nature! 

The retreat begins at 5:00 PM on Friday, September 25, 2015 as we gather together and prepare camp for the evening.  Dinner will be on our own at one of the great restaurants in Downtown Clayton.  Afterward, we\’ll return to the farm for an evening of female bonding  around the fire pit (drumming, dancing, storytelling optional).  Camping is primitive, and showers/bathing is limited, so be prepared.  Those who prefer to not camp may just come for the day on Saturday.

Saturday will feature:

  • Welcoming ceremony around the labyrinth
  • A woods walk
  • Morning Presentation
  • Group forum
  • Crafty activity
  • Afternoon presentation
  • Closing ceremony around the labyrinth

Lunch will be served (please contact Mary for diet restrictions).

The cost of this retreat is $35 per person.  We accept cash, checks, and credit cards.

To register for this event,  call Mary at 919-553-2992 or e-mail us at toadsongfarm@earthlink.net to register – just make sure to leave your e-mail address and phone number so we can send you confirmation of your registration!
