Event description


Join us on Lookout Mountain for a weekend in the woods, honoring the traditions of the wise woman and exploring the healing power of nature and herbs. We come together as mothers, daughters, nature lovers, healers and goddesses to experience the joy and wonder of the wild. As a community of women, we gather to celebrate, play, share, learn and reconnect to our own creativity and wisdom.


With 20 activities scheduled (classes, workshops, community meals and recreational activities) there is something for everyone. Take a class or go on an herb walk, enjoy yoga at moonrise, join a writing circle, drum and sing around the campfire or make new friends at a tea party where you can try herbal tea blends.
