ABOUT

Welcome to a magnificent gathering nestled amidst the tranquil beauty of a sprawling, private 1400-acre ranch, perched majestically in the hills of Mosier, Oregon.

This enchanting event spans four days, serving as a sanctuary for those who identify as women—a celestial junction where they can detach from the demands of everyday life, unravel their spirits, and converge to exchange timeless wisdom, partake in delectable meals, engage in soul-stirring conversations, and embrace tender moments with nature.

Bathed in the golden light of each new dawn, we will come together to revel in morning movement classes, delve into workshops that stir the imagination and nurture the heart, and bear witness to sacred ceremonies that ignite the soul. We shall be nourished by culinary delights crafted with love, savoring the bounty of home-cooked meals that rejuvenate both body and spirit. As twilight casts its gentle veil upon our gathering, we shall unite in connection spaces, delighting in captivating entertainment and mesmerizing performances. And when the sky unfurls its midnight tapestry, we shall gather beneath the celestial canopy, our eyes fixed upon the countless stars, sharing tales and forging bonds around the sacred fire.

In our unwavering commitment to inclusivity, we open our embrace to all who identify as women, ensuring a space that accommodates every need. Child care shall be tenderly provided throughout each workshop, affording mothers the freedom to immerse themselves fully. For those who seek respite and introspection, a haven awaits at the tea and tarot temple—a sanctuary of serenity where one can bask in the gentle cadence of time. Furthermore, a spa and lounge beckon, offering rejuvenating body and energy work, for we understand the importance of tending to our well-being amidst life's ceaseless hustle.

This gathering manifests as a tapestry of choices, allowing you to immerse yourself in as much or as little as your heart desires. It is an invitation to shape an experience that aligns with your deepest yearnings and the unique longings of your soul. Here, within the sanctum of The Temple of Belonging, a plethora of spaces, places, and kindred spirits await your connection. We entrust in your intuition to guide you on this extraordinary journey, certain that you shall depart, cradled in a web of support, revitalized, and inspired to breathe life into your dreams once more.
