Event description

Description

At Home in a World of Possibilities

Once upon a time, when we were young, everything called to our imagination. We felt at home walking in a magical and mysterious world. As the years passed, a disenchanted culture changed the way we see, and we lost sight of what empowers our creative essence and makes us feel fully alive.


Rediscover Who You Truly Are

Nature is the one true realm of magic available to us. Full of wonder and miracles and metamorphosis, here you encounter allies - animals, elements and spirits of nature - that help us understand who we are and give us clues to accomplish anything we want to accomplish. But we need new eyes for seeing.

Start the New Year with a Magical Turn of the Kaleidoscope

Why not leave the disenchanted world behind?

Journey up the sacred mountain to enter a special world of imagination, stories, and enchanted nature to empower and celebrate life after 50.

Spend the weekend on 43 acres of private redwoods at an enchanting estate on Mt. Tamalpais. Discover private trails, meditation spots, enchanted pools, and gentle waterfalls in a forest of beauty and mystery.

Created by women for women, this all-inclusive retreat can shift how you see the world. Through themed experiences, discussions, stories, and timeless ritual, we'll enter into conversation with the heart and imagination where we find value, love, and union with the world around us.


One Magical Weekend = An Empowering New Perspective

Explore Life at the Crossroads - Explore what disenchants this stage of life and what empowers our creative essence and makes us feel fully alive.

See with New Eyes - Enter the mythic forest with our imagination and senses to "see through" the ordinary to the extraordinary.

Journey to Hidden Realms - Access inner knowing for growth, guidance, and healing. Encounter nature spirits, animal guides, and the creative magic of mandala making.

Ceremony and Joy - Bring a sense of belonging back into our modern lives, reconnect our spirits to joy, and celebrate our timelessness.

“There's a flame of magic inside every stone & every flower, every bird that sings & every frog that croaks. There's magic in the trees & the hills & the river & the rocks, in the sea & the stars & the wind, a deep, wild magic that's as old as the world itself. It's in you too, my darling girl, and in me, and in every living creature, be it ever so small. Even the dirt I'm sweeping up now is stardust. In fact, all of us are made from the stuff of stars.” - Kate Forsyth, The Puzzle Ring
