Day 1 (-/-/D) Welcome to the Dahlonega Spa Resort!

Our travels from various places around the world will bring us together at the tranquil oasis of the Dahlonega Spa Resort in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. After you have settled into your haven for the week, we will have a Welcome Gathering to share a delicious evening meal and meet the rest of the tribe of sisters.

We will then share an Intention Circle around the fire: a blessing of the efforts that have brought us all together, and setting of intentions for the week to come.

Day 2-6 (B/L/D)

Each day begins with a centering mother/daughter yoga class, and a healthy breakfast.

The daily dharma teachings will inspire both women and girls to a new way of relating to ourselves, to others, and to life. The girls will have their own daily sessions, exploring Feminine Power principles through improvisation, musical and theater arts, and imaginative play. While the girls are meeting, the women will also be meeting with Katherine and/or Miriam each day to learn Feminine Power practices and principles that will support them to realize their greater potentials, and provide guidance on how they can help their daughters to realize theirs as well.

We will also facilitate daily circles for the women and girls to gather together so that we might create a shared experience and cultivate an even deeper sense of connection – not only with those gathered, but with all women and girls throughout history, including those who will come after us. We will honor and celebrate our sacred evolutionary role, and awaken to our lives as filled with purpose, and a sense of co-creative power to influence the future of our world.

This journey will also include abundant opportunities to explore the breathtaking natural beauty of the North Georgia Mountains. You will have free time to go hiking in the woods, swim at Dicks Creek Falls, visit the Nature Tours Kangaroo Conservation Center, or go into town to see the local shops. Older gals might be interested in White Water Rafting, Panther Creek Falls, or Amicalola Falls, the highest waterfall east of the Mississippi! The resort has 1.5 miles of hiking trails right on the property and you can also explore the fields and meadows that reside on it’s 72 acres. More than one-third of Lumpkin County resides in the Chattahoochee National Forest and is covered with trails for hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, and four-wheeler touring. Let us help you plan some great activities!

There will be ample time for both exploration and introspection. Enjoy the surroundings of the resort, experience the relaxing and restorative spa treatments, and reflect on the shifts you experience and the possibilities that you will bring back.

Day 7 (B/-/-) Home Again!

Our final Circle will be this morning, a chance to share personal reflections from the week, gratitude for what has been experienced, and a blessing for our journeys home.

We’ll be departing paradise with our hearts full, ready to put into practice all that we have shared and learned. New supportive and loving friendships have been made and we will already be looking forward to our next gathering!
