Mother’s Day Retreat

May 11 - May 14

In this retreat, we’ll come together to celebrate our femininity and connect deeply with the Mother as a universal archetypal power that protects, nurtures and empowers us. Surrounded by nature’s glory, we’ll listen to Earth’s ancient wisdom and to the guidance that wells up from deep within us. This is a time to re-center, refocus and replenish. Let yourself be nurtured in body, heart, mind and spirit. Rest, journal, enjoy nature’s beauty and connect with powerful women within the profoundly sacred space that Jalaja creates in her circles.

Women love Jalaja’s Spring retreats.

Why? Well, for one, there’s simply no more beautiful place to witness the ecstasy of life’s renewal than at Light on the Hill in upstate New York.

As always, long afternoon breaks will ensure you have plenty of time for naps, walks and meditations. You’ll love the gourmet meals, and if you want, you can book yourself a massage.

All the while, Jalaja will be there to support and empower you, guide you into sacred space and help you come home to yourself.

During this retreat, we’re going to celebrate Mother’s Day by opening to the archetypal Mother energy within us all, within nature and within the cosmos. We’ll invoke her protection, her creative powers and her infinite compassion. We’ll listen for her guidance and celebrate her through music and dance, chanting and ritual.

“All my life I struggled with being a woman. I searched for a woman who was soft, yielding, strong, powerful, effective, centered. Then I met Jalaja. She is so clear and receptive, and her connection to the Divine is powerful and transforming. The circle … thanks be to the circle. I feel so transformed. It feels so wonderful to be living in my body appreciating being female and having the long lost connection with women again.”

– Jacqueline Doty

“In Jalaja’s circles, I experienced the essence of sisterhood for the first time in my life. I so appreciate her presence and availability, not just to me but to everyone. Her circles are a beautiful dance into Self, into the goddess and into nature. What a priceless gift!”

– Sheila Cotton

“Miraculously I found Jalaja 20 years ago.  I understood then that for me, my bout with breast cancer had to do with needing to heal my mother wound. And it was through the loving container of Circlework and Jalaja’s support that my healing of this wound was initiated.  Being held in the magic of her circles was like being held by a protective and loving mother, the very medicine I was yearning to experience.”
