Autumnal Equinox Retreat

Take your cues from trees in autumn, which do not stubbornly hold on to their leaves or will them to stay green. Resisting change doesn’t stop it from happening. Let go, if only a little. Try to make yourself at home in a new season. Keep moving. – Maggie Smith

Are you ready to make yourself at home in a new season?

Autumn is perhaps my favorite season. There is something about the crunch of leaves underfoot, the comfort of a sweater wrapped around me, and the steadiness I feel when boots hold my feet.

There is a bittersweet element to the season too. It signals that we are nearing the end of the calendar year, and it is a time when we begin to reflect on the year, to turn inward, and perhaps to gather some lessons.

To mark this harvest season, we are going to gather the pieces of ourselves that have grown throughout the year.

We will examine this bundle in all of its sacredness and move through the process of holding close what we need to carry with us into the next season, and honoring what is ready to be released.

We will come together to prepare for the shift from external to internal, as we move into the season of shortening days.

Through meditation, movement, and creative practices, the intention of the time together is to reflect in order to grow. This is about harvesting – gathering the pieces of self, and connecting to your inherent wholeness so that you can carry that light into even the darkest of days.

Who is this for?

The Autumnal Equinox Retreat is open to anyone who is looking for a sacred space to harvest what has grown in their life over the year, and who is ready to take these pieces of self and hold them close, reflect, and see where they may lead.

When is the retreat taking place? I need details!

We will open our time together on September 24th from 7 – 9pm EST. This evening will be a space for grounding, introductions, and opening ritual.

We will spend September 25th from 10am – 4pm EST together, diving into all the goodness of this retreat.

What can I expect from the weekend?

We will begin on the evening of September 24th with an opening ceremony from 7 – 9pm EST. This is the moment that will open our time together and serve as a chance for introductions, grounding, and overview of how Saturday will go, and a ritual to open us up to receiving the energy of what has been planted and is ready to be harvested.

On Saturday, we will gather from 10am – 4pm EST. We will take time at the start of the day to set intentions and ground into the day with a mediation. The rest of the day will flow through a series of sessions where we will GATHER, REFLECT, and GROW. Each session will have writing, artistic, and gentle movement components.

At the end of the day, we will circle together to share and to experience a closing ritual.

This is a come-as-you are retreat. What that means is that you are invited to be present and show up in whatever ways feel good for you in the moment. If you are interested in joining and have any concerns about accessibility, please reach out to me. The intention is to create a space that works for everyone who wants to participate.

How much does the retreat cost?

The retreat is $108, and includes our time together as well as a PDF that you’ll receive after the weekend so you can continue to explore and deepen your journey beyond the weekend.
