What are the dates?

What are the sleeping arrangements like?
The rooms are shared. Some beds will be shared with a fellow sister. The unshared beds are first come first serve. In keeping with the theme of sisterhood, we will be pairing all participants with a designated sister prior to departure. This person will be your roommate and also your support person throughout the retreat. If you're coming along with a friend, you can room with them! The nature of the retreat is deep sisterhood, so it was important to choose a private and intimate location.
What kind of support can I expect in preparation?
You will have one 25 minute check-in call/video chat with Kat & team as well as a group call with Kat and all participants prior to the retreat beginning where you can ask questions and have a conversation about what you’re hoping to get out of the retreat experience, disclose any specific support you’ll be needing.
You will also be sent a full retreat itinerary and packing list ahead of departure so you can be assured that you bring everything you need
The retreat is designed for you.
I have dietary restrictions, can I expect that they will be accommodated?
Yes! We will be working with the chef ahead of time to ensure that there will be delicious food suitable to everyone’s needs as much as possible. There is a question about dietary restrictions on the intake form, we will touch base with you ahead of departure to make sure your needs will be met.
What if the content of the workshops triggers me?
The content will be activating at times, it's the nature of the work. Kat is a skilled Somatic facilitator who has several years experience working with trauma, triggers, the autonomic nervous system, and the body and will support you in grounding back into your body and processing your triggers so that you can use them as an opportunity to heal.
The intake form and check in call before the retreat will give you an opportunity to share any trauma/woulds that may come up so we can best support you.
What if I feel uncomfortable with strangers?
We get it, it can be nerve wracking to attend things like this with folks you don’t know yet.
A month before the retreat all participants will be invited to join a closed Facebook group for the womxn attending the retreat. This will be a great opportunity to get to know one another.
You may be surprised with how quickly your feelings of unfamiliarity will shed away.
There is some sort of magic that occurs when womxn come together in sacred space.
Trust that you will likely fall in love with your new sisterhood!
What do I need to bring with me?
We will be emailing you a couple months out to let you know what you'll need to bring!
What’s the weather going to be like?
Beautiful! High of 28c and low of 14c
