Awaken The Goddess Within: A Hot Springs Retreat

Needs a location

Each of us has a goddess within. Not some faraway fantasy that exists as a thing of fiction, impossible to access, but as a sacred self that is lying dormant, perhaps, while always ready to befriend and guide us.

Join Black & Brown Women's Alliance for a weekend of healing mineral waters, yoga, meditation, sound healing, and more at Joyful Journey Hot Springs in the pristine Sangre de Cristo mountains of Moffat, Colorado, just 3 hours south of Denver. Naturally super-heated by the earth’s active geothermal and hydrothermal activity, Joyful Journey provides a sanctuary for the soul where you can relax and rejuvenate. Connect at your leisure with like minded sisters on the healing path.

ABOUT THE WEEKEND
Enjoy bliss-filled sisterhood and contemplative practices that include:
• guided meditation
• nature walks
• sunrise practice
• earth-based ritual
• unstructured downtime for reflection and restoration
• optional dips into the natural hot springs

All meals are included and most dietary needs – ie gluten free, vegan, vegetarian, etc – can be accommodated.

The soaring presence of the Sangre de Cristo mountains provides the perfect backdrop and foundation for Awakening the Goddess Within. Check-in begins as early as 2pm, and our weekend will officially launch with a welcome dinner at 6pm. Sunday departure by 2pm on Sunday.

ABOUT THE VENUE
Joyful Journey Hot Springs is a perfect place for pure relaxation that's not too far from home. These natural hot springs are 100% artesian mineral water which comes out of the ground at over 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Pools are gravity fed and naturally kept at temperatures between 98 and 110 degrees. Joyful Journey features overnight accommodations as well as Eco-Lodging in the Yurt and Tipi village.

PACKAGE OPTIONS
Each option offers Early Bird Pricing until March 11, 2022 and Regular Pricing from March 12 until registration closes on May 1.

Shared: Enjoy the comfort and serenity of The Lodge in cozy rooms that feature two queen-sized beds with a private bath in each room (shared only by the room's two occupants). Aspen-wood furniture lends a rustic touch to your stay and outdoor decks provide remarkable views for stargazing and winding down, shared rooms in The Lodge provide the perfect quiet getaway with the comforts of a resort.

Single: Private yurts are ensconced in nature, defined by their canvas walls, circular shape, and wooden lattice work that creates a unique structure. The fully furnished yurts are spacious and provide a comfortable single accommodation experience. Yurts stand apart from the general area, with a brief walk to the bathrooms and pools. Be advised the bathing facilities and restrooms are NOT located in the yurts, but are a short walk away from these units.
