About this trip

Connect with yourself and nature as you find nourishment and peace by harnessing the grounding power of wild clay. During this three-day retreat, you’ll gather, cleanse, handbuild, and pit fire one-of-a-kind ceramic piece. Throughout this experience, you’ll engage in therapeutic personal growth work, exploring how this ancient process relates to self-discovery.


You will leave the retreat feeling revived, grounded, and nourished through this immersive experience, prepared to take on your day-to-day life with a new view of reality, a more clear understanding of what is valuable to you, an idea of what you want out of your life, with a priceless, handmade vessel that serves as a talisman to the work and growth you experienced.

Explore, create, learn, grow, liberate, empower, ground and cleanse your mind, body, and soul with a supportive group of incredible women.


You can expect a replenishing experience with 3-nights unique lakefront accommodations, healthy whole meals, personal growth exercises, yoga, access to kayaks & SUPS, and healing seminars.
