Going Within: Nurturing the Urge to Hibernate

Methow Valley, Twisp, WA
$495, work/trade opportunities may be available
4-Day Retreat in the Methow Valley
Often we long to retreat after the busy winter holidays.  During the long winter nights, darkness whispers gently to come forth, to honor the time of going within, hibernation.  How do we step into the darkness, honoring the opportunity to reflect upon our individual lives while continuing to be present within our partnership, family and community?

Please join us as we find solitude within community, recognizing that as we honor ourselves we open the door to a deeper connection with life and the world around us.  We will gather at Skalitude, a sustainable retreat center near the Methow Valley. The lodge is a lovely, off-the-grid facility, located in a 160-acre secluded basin – a warm place to nestle in as the snow falls outside.

Each day, we will step into the crisp mountain air and explore nature amongst the rolling hills and meadows on cross-country skis or snowshoes. The serene and expansive landscape will lend itself to opportunities for self-reflection.
