The Divine Feminine – Healer for All: A Weekend Retreat

November 8 - November 10

Theme: The Divine Feminine – Healer for All

The Divine feminine was everywhere until about 5000 years ago. Then, she disappeared, or was “downsized” to a less prominent, less powerful status (such as Mary in Christianity), as patriarchal religion was in the ascendancy.  On this silent retreat we discover how to reconnect with her and balance masculine and feminine within, no matter your gender, or what spiritual tradition you claim.

Leader: Connie Ridgway is an experienced retreat leader and a lover of Dayspring.  She is a singer, counselor and meditator as well as a member of Eighth Day Faith Community.


Weekend retreats run Friday dinner through Sunday lunch. The silence begins Friday night after dinner when the leader opens the retreat and introduces the theme. The leader usually offers brief reflections with morning and evening prayers on Saturday. The silence ends after breakfast Sunday morning with a time of sharing and worship, followed by lunch and departure.

The cost for weekend retreats is $275.  A $125 deposit is required to register.

We serve family-style, homemade vegetarian food which includes eggs and dairy. If you have any allergies or medically advised dietary restrictions, please let us know, and we will accommodate your needs if we can.

Please complete this registration form.
Then use the Contact Page form to request assistance.

Dinner on Friday at 7 pm is the first official gathering. You are welcome to arrive and settle in between 3:30 and 6:30 pm on Friday. The retreat will end by 2 pm on Sunday.  Please plan to stay for the entire retreat.
