2014 theme:  Color Outside the Lines-Free to be ME!

Location: Saratoga Springs Retreat & Healing Center  at 10243 Saratoga Springs Rd, Upper Lake, CA 95485

The SisterSpirit Dream Team is gearing up for our seventh annual women’s retreat and we would love for you to join us! This retreat is designed especially for you- set in a spiritual and beautiful setting, near Upper Clear Lake, CA. Some highlights of the retreat include drumming, great music, Divine Expression Theater, Nurture Nook, Game Night, Sweat Lodge, Labyrinth, Workshops, Creative Craft Cabin, fresh food, and much, much more! Feed your heart and soul. Connect and be nurtured by extraordinary women. Relax and give yourself a treat. You deserve it!

Our intention every year is to provide a safe space for:
• Discovery ~ Be open to new ideas, take some risks, and release your best self
• Creative expression ~ Create music or beautiful craft objects and delight in the
freedom of your expression
• Spiritual connection ~ Be filled up spiritually, experience mindfulness through
meditation, drumming, or the sweat lodge
• Relaxation ~ Take quiet time for yourself to reflect, try yoga, or walk in nature
• Connection with women ~ Behold the richness and depth of other women
through circle discussions and small group interaction
• Fun ~ Expect to laugh a lot, dance, or sit around the campfire
• Nurturing ~ Take care of yourself, connect with other women, all the while being pampered with great food that you don’t have to cook!

    Beyond excellent! Why is that? Because of the way we manage to do the deep work needed for transforming our thinking about ourselves and our lives while at the same time having fun and relaxing with a group of fabulous, strong, creative and beautiful women. I am truly inspired!

    It was the best retreat ever. My daughter Julie and I are continuing to explore our relationship and saying what we need to say while considering the love we share as the most important single thing we can ever do. Thank you Sister Spirit, you held the space for miracles of love and acceptance.
    Nemastte. WE look forward to the future together.

    I am so excited to be attending my very first Sister Spirit Retreat. Missed out last year, but heard about many wonderful experiences. What a joy to have the place, the space, and the tools to be creative. Fun!
