Honor the changes in the natural world and within.

Fall is an opportunity to fill up on gratitude. To prepare for what is to come, and to make use of what is happening in the present moment. As we transition into a new season, finding grace with ourselves to receive and to open our receptors creates peace and harmony within. Giving us room to shed and to let go, but also to remember the strength in our bones, and our endurance in balancing the light and the dark. 

Wisdom and magick, that is the essence of Fall. A time for compassion, harvesting and composting. A welcome retreat inward, for leaning into our intuition, resting, dreaming, and healing.

THE SETTING

Amongst the Grandmother Trees

Located just outside of Portland, OR, the Serenity Retreat sits on a tranquil twenty-acre oasis. Old-growth cedar groves, majestic blue herons, spacious meadows, and a bubbling creek, is the back-drop to a sacred space that supports holistic well-being on every level.

THE EXPERIENCE

Gentle offerings of love, joy, play, rest, soulful nourishment and sacred ceremony.

During the Fall Equinox we arrive at a moment of perfect balance. Where we hang suspended with the light of the day equal to the length of the night. This is a time where we can reap the benefits of the season and harvest all that we have sown.

sacred ceremony

Gratitude & Grace

During this experience we’ll exhale what is no longer needed. We’ll find sacred ceremony to celebrate the harvest and give gratitude for all we have.

Over the weekend you will experience multiple offerings that offer guidance, restoration & comfort:

• Hapé Ceremony
• Cacao Ceremony
• Medicina Mico—A Medicinal Hongo Tea Journey
• Releasing Fire Ceremony
• Soundbath Journey
• Yin Yoga
• Hand-making
• Energy Cleansing
• Opportunity for 1-1 Readings
• Opportunity for 1-1 Body & Facial Massage

Being in sisterhood, connecting with others who love and respect the Earth, beliefs in ancestral presence and the ceremonial leaders who laid down a safe place to travel was really great.

Attendee- Rituals of Release

Connecting for a day of selfcare with other women of color brought tears to my eyes, in so many ways.

I was so happy I attended the Fall Equinox Retreat, it gave me a chance to connect with myself and to release. I left there feeling really grounded and believing in myself.

I really enjoyed the ceremonial cacao, I feel like the timing at the end of the retreat was an ideal send-off back into the world.

Attendee- Ignight Retreat

I think the most meaningful moments for me were the mealtimes and the initial circle. Friday nights ceremony of making and Hapé felt especially sweet and connected.

I walked into the room and saw so many folks who looked like me, I felt at ease instantly. To be able to gather with many WOC in ceremony was beautiful.
