|Clarissa Pinkola Estes, in Women Who Run
with The Wolves says women are searching
for a culture that will enable them to free their
own true nature. She describes this yearning
in the following paragraph:
“It makes a woman go on looking, and if she
cannot find the culture that encourages her,
then she usually decides to construct it
herself. And that is good, for if she builds it,
others who have been looking for a long time
will mysteriously arrive one day
enthusiastically proclaiming that they have
been looking for this all along.”
Now that we have built Sarah’s Circle, we are
finding women are responding just as Ms.
Estes wrote above. We hope you will try one
of our retreats and believe you will find it IS
just what you have been looking for!

|"How might your life have been different if there had been a place for you? A place for
you to go...a place of women, to help you learn the ways of woman...a place where you
were nurtured from an ancient flow sustaining you and steadying you as you sought to
become yourself. A place of women to help you find and trust the ancient flow already
there within yourself..waiting to be released...How might your life have been different?"
"How might your life have been different, if, through the years, there had been a place
where you could go?...A place of women, away from the ordinary busy-ness of life...a
place of women who knew the cycles of life, the ebb and flow of nature, who knew of
times of work and times of quiet...who understood your tiredness and need for rest. A
place of women who could help you to accept your fatigue and trust your limitations,
and to know, in the dark of winter, that your energy would return, as surely as the
spring. Women who could help you learn to light a candle and to wait...How might your
life be different?"

Retreats are a
relational journey in
the company of
other women. We
invite you to be one
of those women at
the next retreat.
