Sacred Earth Retreat - Fall 2021 Women's Retreat

October 29-31, 2021

Let yourself be silently drawn by the strong pull of what you really love. -Rumi

 

Gather. Remember. Connect.

Remember what it’s like to be close to the earth, to sit under the stars, to be in the forest, to be part of the natural world, not separate from it. Gather with other like-minded women. Connect to the sacred earth, to your deeper self, to beauty, to soul – together. Spend two nights at a beautiful, new, intimate retreat center space in the forested foothills of the Catskill Mountains in Delancey, NY for:

Meditation.

Earth-honoring practices and ritual.

Quiet time in the forest.

Singing.

Campfires, reflection circles, journaling and intentional time in nature.

Moon circle.

Yoga.

Deep connection.

Healthy, local food.

The Space

Tolmulgaton  “A place to make your own meaning” is the camp-home and retreat space owned by Elizabeth Faas, an artist turned psychiatric nurse-practitioner from Baltimore. She purchased the property formerly known as “Pioneer Trails Campground” 5 years ago. A true labor of love, she has been transforming the grounds to be just that- a place for people to gather and be in whatever way is meaningful for them. Please note - there are two very friendly dogs on the property!

What others have experienced:

“Chelsea is kind and wise, and the spiritual inclusiveness and language of her practice has had a positive effect on me. I would recommend Chelsea to anyone and everyone seeking safe group structuring, and comfortable group re-evaluation of self-knowledge, especially women who are interested in becoming more expressive. Chelsea is someone who walks her talk.” – Amelia

 

“The space and retreat agenda are intentionally curated to allow you to feel cared for.  My retreat was cathartic and transformational, allowing me the time and space to give attention to my thoughts and feelings.  I had a chance to listen to what brings me peace, and consider how I might implement habits in my lifestyle to bring true peace more often.” – Christy

 

"I have profoundly appreciated my time working with Chelsea, who is a deep listener, incredibly grounded, and also real and authentic in the most relatable of ways. I have felt understood by her, and also left our times together with a deeper understanding of myself. I appreciate Chelsea's energy and way of relating that is humble and also powerful in the types of questions she asks and the quiet space she holds for knowing to emerge. Thank you, Chelsea, for your time and care, and for being an example of what it can look and feel like to work towards creating an intentional and purposeful life."  - Monica 

"Spending time on this retreat allowed me space to pause and fully drop-into my own personal rhythm. Chelsea’s thoughtfulness, perfect planning and amazing cooking skills allowed me to be in the present moment, relax and experience the luxury of no plans or responsibilities."

"By focusing only on my self-care for this retreat, I felt like I could finally breathe, listen, taste, smell, be still, rest, grieve, pray, and enjoy being alone.  A huge thanks to Chelsea who was incredibly encouraging, supportive, and flexible when it came time to set my intentions and create a schedule for the retreat. I highly recommend this retreat!"
