Connection and Empowerment:  Women's Small Group Retreat

WHEN:  July 18-22 (begins Wednesday evening, finishes Sunday by noon)

WHERE:  Simple, secluded home in nature -- Kingston, WA  (1.5 hours from Seattle, via Edmonds/Kingston ferry)

**This retreat is now FULL - if you couldn't make it this time but are deeply interested, please let me know; perhaps we can create something like it in your region.**

You are warmly invited to a women's small group retreat this summer with Casey Bledsoe and 8 other beautiful souls at a secluded home on 15 acres on the shore of the Salish Sea (Puget Sound).  The aim of this retreat is to provide an opportunity for spiritual deepening, while also deepening our connections with each other and the ways we are called to serve in this world.

In our present global climate, it is more imperative than ever that we express our heart's deep wisdom on behalf of love, harmony, and compassion for all - that we live the real truths we know in our bodies and souls.  In the process, we can be nourished, energized, and enlivened by connecting with each other, re-vivifying our vision, commitment and confidence, and developing greater courage for new leaps into the future.

On this retreat, we will tap into the group source of sacred power, life-force, inner wisdom, and joy.  For 4 nights, we will laugh, play, cook meals, and share walks, as well as spend time in meditation, spiritual practice, and other focused group activities.

For those who wish, there will be an opportunity to lead the group in prayer, song, movement, discussion, or any other form of connection that inspires.  We will empower each other to develop and share our unique gifts.  If you have been looking for a way to challenge yourself, or to address what has been holding you back, this will be a safe and loving opportunity to do so.

We will also spend time alone, refreshing our spirits and enjoying nature at our lovely getaway facing the Sound.  Participants are welcome to camp or sleep outdoors; indoor accommodations are shared rooms and bathrooms.  

COST:  $400  - Dana* if you wish (see below)

 RSVP to Jelilah at or 206 329 5576, for further registration information, as well as any questions.

*Dana:  Dana is a Buddhist practice of generosity, or "giving freely."  $400 is what is required to cover the fixed costs of the retreat -- lodging, all meals, and Casey's airfare to WA.  Casey does not receive anything for her time or teachings, except what is freely given.  She relies on donations to sustain a life dedicated to spiritual service.  Any amount given, large or small, is deeply appreciated.
