UPLIFT Women's Skillshare is a celebration, a returning, an invitation for women to fully step into the age of collaboration and inter-connectedness. Tapping into the expansive energies of Spring in an intimate circle of sisterhood, we will gather for 3 days and 2 nights to share traditional & modern folks skills on a 30+ acre organic farm and historic homestead in the fertile valleys of Orcas Island, WA. Our time together will be shaped by ceremony and an ever-unfolding call to weave traditional knowledge with place-based intuition, to awaken our presence within the creative sanctuary of forest & field.
Our intention is to provide a retreat from the forces that pull us away from our deep knowing, and an opportunity to align with the slow way of moving in harmony that we have known in our bones for generations.
To increase accessibility, we are gathering for two separate sessions (back-to-back weekends). Each session offers 2 Service Roles, 5 Guiding Roles and 15 Open Registration Roles. Tickets are available at sliding scale rates. This will be an intimate event that allows each sister the timespace to share & reflect her experience. We are calling in women of all ages, races, religions, sexual orientations, and body sizes to join us in this celebration of traditional & sacred arts.
If you feel called to join us, there are a rainbow of ways to step into the circle.
