Woman Warrior Retreat

Woman Warrior

Would it change your life if you had unstoppable confidence and knew - without question - how to lead like a Warrior without sacrificing your Divine Feminine?

For most women, the answer is a resounding YES, but sometimes it's hard to know where to begin!

Join us for the 2019 Woman Warrior Retreat and be part of an intimate group of focused women on the banks of the historic New River. Spend your Summer Solstice in the spiritual epicenter of the Blue Ridge Mountains and participate in a weekend of amazing growth opportunities:

On the most powerful night of the summer season, participate in a Summer Solstice Ceremony led by Rachel Mann, acclaimed Shamanic Healer, who offers deep teachings on how to access your natural abundance, authentic power, and spiritual sovereignty.
Learn from, be inspired by, and ask questions to Cheri Honkala, internationally recognized anti-poverty and human rights advocate.
Receive survival and confidence building training from Judy Seay, a women's state canoe champion from Texas.

Oracle's "Woman Warrior Retreat" will explore all these themes and provides a perfect venue to express ourselves, our feelings, and our power!

Join us to examine the concepts of human rights, economic justice, sacred activism, and life purpose. We also will learn how to channel righteous anger into action and reflect on Warrior Self-Care. Attendees will participate in classes, ceremonies, survival training, and confidence building exercises that will empower them to leave with the tools needed to confidently make a difference in our world. Let us promote a more socially just and equal story – herstory – with courage, compassion, and charisma!

The price for this retreat includes all meals. If you have special dietary needs, please let us know. As a general rule, we prepare organic meals, including farm fresh eggs from our chickens! Meat is served on the side (for vegetarians) and gluten-free options are served as well. Lodging is not included because some of our attendees are local. Out of town guests are encouraged to stay at Oracle Campus at one of our guest houses or in our campground. After you book your retreat, you will receive a discount code for accommodations, which you can use to book a room or campsite at www.OracleGuests.com.
