Holding Space: Personal Retreats
Everyday life comes with noisy energy.
Meetings and field trips.
Crying babies and emotional teens.
New romances and brutal breakups.
That’s the real day-to-day for sure — the hot and the cold of it, the ebb and the flow of it, the magic and the mayhem.
The you who lives in the quiet moments is real too.
The ideas that flow when you are well rested.
The way you notice your body speaks to you when it’s yours and yours alone.
The ease in your shoulders and the softness in your throat that comes with time away.
The “ah-ha and amen” that emerges with a change of scenery.
What if you could:
- Wake and rest at your body’s own pace.
- Have a dedicated space to write, paint or practice.
- Eat food loving prepared by someone who is not you.
- Explore new terrain in the silence of your own company.
- Start and end your day with ritual, and a listening ear?
Now you can.
Introducing Holding Space – personalized retreats for your creative soul.
Jen Lemen and I started holding space for women in retreat houses in 2014, and we never cease to be awed and grateful at the way this sacred time and space literally changes lives.
Gather 4-6 women in a guest house for a weekend of quiet days and storied nights and we will come to you. You pick the abode, or let us find you an Air BnB that’s just right for your coven of sisters.
Start your mornings with a customized ritual that is created in a one-one-one coaching session with Jen. Tap into “kitchen wisdom coaching” with Rachelle as she prepares the clean, simple food that will nourish you during your stay. Sink into gorgeous swaths of time in silence, then learn and laugh together in story circles as the day ends.
This kind of quiet, lightly-structured space is the catalyst to so many good things. It soothes frayed nerves. Reconnects you with your natural, most productive rhythm, and lets your creative work flow.
Holding Space retreats are right-fit care during times of transition, at the turn of seasons, on your birthday, or any time your souls says, “yes, this.”
Retreat fees vary depending on services offered. Typically fees are structured to include the cost of groceries, soulful welcome gifts, travel for Jen and Rachelle, and a $2,500 stipend for three days of deep care. Don’t have a house you can use for your retreat? Feel free to book one on your own, or we can source your retreat site for you for the cost of the rental + $150 research fee.
