Women & Wolves:

Embodied Wisdom

To witness a wolf is to witness embodied wisdom.

Join us for our first Women & Wolves overnight retreat from Friday, June 14th to Saturday, June 15th, 2019. Participants are invited to enter an immersive experience of honoring the wolves as our sacred teachers, practicing awareness and curiosity with our physical and emotional presence, seeking stillness with our inner truths, engaging in rituals that honor the power of the pack and creating space for play and reflection.

This session is open to people over the age of 18 who are serious about exploring their personal journey and growth. You will be encouraged to listen from the heart, speak from the heart, illuminate only the heart of the matter and at times, to be in silence with your heart.

The retreat will include meditation, exploration of self and community, creative expression, hiking and connecting with the wolves, shared meals and sacred ceremony.

The overnight experience will involve sleeping under the stars or in tents, with the ground or a cot as your bed, and minimal washing/cleansing facilities will be available. Expect a rugged and minimalist experience. If you do not desire the rugged experience, there is an option to leave Friday at 10pm and return Saturday 7:30am.

NOTE: Use of drugs or alcohol is not permitted on Wolf Connection property. Smoking restricted to certain areas.


The program will begin at 3pm on Friday, June 14th and end at 9pm on Saturday June 15th. We will NOT make accommodations for arrivals/departures outside of this time frame, as it will disrupt the group process. Gates will close at 3:15pm on Friday June 14th. Please plan to arrive 15-20 minutes early to park and get situated, AND to ensure entry before gate closing time. We welcome those with physical limitations to contact us in advance so we can explore accommodations given our location and terrain.
