Retreats and Daylongs

5th Annual Women’s Residential Retreat at Joshua Tree

Jan 16-19, 2020

with Mary Stancavage
assisted by Amy Love and Kimberly Nao (yoga)

Join us for this weekend of practice in community.

There will be a chance to experience an extended period of meditation that is so vital to our practice. Retreats offer the opportunity to move deeply into our experience and know the poignancy of the human condition and the capacity of the heart. There will be periods of sitting and walking meditation, movement, dharma talks, discussion and inquiry.  This form of practice supports our deepest intention to be free. This retreat will be held in noble silence and is suitable for all.

We use an inclusive definition of “woman” and “female” and we welcome trans women, genderqueer women, and non-binary people who are significantly female-identified. Attendees only need to identify as women in a way that’s significant to them.


The retreat fees are tiered and we ask that you pay at the highest level you can afford. This will allow us to create a fund to provide scholarship support for those who might not otherwise be able to attend and to create a fund for future retreats. The teachers and staff are not being paid and there will be an opportunity to offer dana (donation) at the end of the retreat.  Please contact us if you would like to make payment arrangements.
Room & Board Sliding Scale: $295-$650
Single Rooms are available for an additional $225


We have some scholarship funds available for those who need support to attend this retreat. We understand the financial challenges associated with attending a residential retreat and hope to make it possible for as many women as possible to attend. We are especially aware of the issues faced by traditionally marginalized communities such as women of color and LGBTQI and hope to make this retreat possible for everyone who wants to attend.
