About this trip

Life comes at us quickly. We live in a culture where a sense of urgency is the norm, continuing to push forward with our goals, increase productivity, get that next promotion, be a superhero parent, or achieve that next big thing. Taking time and space to care for yourself feels like just another thing to put on your to-do list. We get it. Prioritizing yourself can be hard! But we are in this together.

During times of great demand or change, it’s most important to take a moment to incorporate stillness into our lives. We will be removing ourselves from our hectic routines and allowing ourselves to open and pause. Let us care for you for a change. Come just as you are. Invest in yourself and leave feeling more grounded, rejuvenated, and connected to yourself, nature and other women. 


We warmly welcome to the retreat all self-identifying women, years 21+, who feel ready to take a pause in the busyness of life and come back to themselves.


DATES: 28-30 July 2023

Arrive between 1 - 2pm on Friday. Depart by noon on Sunday. 

Location

This retreat will take place on a private 545 acre property nestled in the hills of Colrain, Massachusetts. Let the surrounding nature restore your mind and spirit in this peaceful refuge. The renovated 170 year-old farmhouse will be our home base. Depending on the activity and the weather during the retreat, we will take advantage of the adjacent studio space, and of course, the abundant outdoors with many miles of trails and gorgeous views into Vermont.

About Us

Your Hosts: Ashley and Isabelle

We come from hustle culture, high pressure careers, full family lives, and have always been driven to make the world a more just and kind place for everyone in it. We know burnout and we know overwhelm. We also know the importance of hitting the time-out button, clearing the schedule, of walking barefoot on the ground, eating mindfully, making new connections, opening our minds and hearts to new possibilities. We are life-long friends who have personally experienced the transformative effects of being immersed in nature and in community with other women. Most importantly, we have a knack for creating truly unique and meaningful experiences that are healing, supportive and rejuvenating. We are so excited for your arrival.


What we believe:

  • We all need time to pause
  • Investing in ourselves is the first step in being able to better serve others
  • The experience of being seen and heard in a supportive group of women is cleansing and uplifting
  • Stillness invites opportunities for a new perspective to emerge
  • Time immersed in nature brings us back to ourselves
  • There is no one way to live life

About Arrived

Imagine committing to take time for yourself. Knowing that investing in your wellbeing will have a positive ripple effect in the lives of those around you. All the ducks (or as many ducks as possible) have been put in a row and you drive away from the usual demands on your time and energy. You’re driving up a dirt road, dust in your rearview mirror, all colors of green flourish on both sides of the road. You park at your destination and are greeted by women who know it’s no small thing to do what you’re doing. Your comfortable sleeping arrangements, the deeply nourishing meals, and intentional offerings have been deliberately designed for your wellbeing. We are here for you. You breathe in a deep breath of fresh air, coming back into your body, ready to relax into an easy flow and open up to the possibilities of the next couple days.

This was such a lucious day- every detail was considered and our experience held so that we could fully relax into the flow. The schedule was just right- space for pauses and reflection and a perfect variety of workshops and experiences to try. I wish we could do it every weekend!!! Thank you so much Ashley, Isabelle and all who supported the experience. Chrissy

I had no idea that just a one day retreat would allow me to reset, reflect, and rejuvenate myself, but I was very impressed how much it helped me do all this! Thank you Ashley and Isabelle for guiding us through a relaxing, educational, and wonderful day. Also thank you to all the other facilitators/teachers/practitioners. It was a well balanced day.

We had such a magical lil glamping adventure. I love camping & I gotta say that "glamping" takes it to a whole nother level. The accomodations were fabulous, the activities were great & the food was fantastic! I slept & felt the best I had in weeks! Thank you for the incredible experience! :)

This retreat was the perfect medicine for my body and mind! It was a balance of activities, quiet solo time, and creative projects. The leaders prepared the most delicious and nutritious foods. Such a pleasure to be cooked for! The yoga, meditation and sound bathing were incredible, very skilled and intuitive women. Can't wait for the next retreat and I'm going to tell all my friends about it.
