Good vibes only retreat


This weekend-long event is held off site at Fox Haven Organic Farm

Held in a historic farmhouse on an organic farm just an hour and a half outside of Washington DC, we'll gather with 10 new friends for a weekend of creativity, healing, connection, and nature.


Picture a place where women of all ages feast on delicious foods while sitting around the fire pit. They're creating their own custom perfumes with essential oils, making photographs with the sun's light, and singing to guitar music. They’re opening up with each other about their inner lives and making space to truly listen. Part summer camp, part spiritual gathering, part multi-generational inspiration fest, this is Good Vibes Only: a retreat for creative, soulful ladies.


Activities include:

·      Essential oil perfumery

·      Paper marbling

·      Blessing circles

·      Cyanotypes

·      Morning writing

·      Wholesome vegetarian meals


When ladies gather in a circle with guided support, we can be heard, supported, and tap into our innermost creativity and power. This retreat is for creative ladies of all stripes who want to be inspired, recharge, and create.


You’ll leave the weekend with a bag of lovingly curated gifts and a set of your own badass original art pieces - like paper you’ll marble and old fashioned photographs you’ll create. By the end of the retreat, you’ll have a bit more clarity than you came in with and a new circle of sistren (seriously, folks come knowing no one, and leave with new friends).


We'll be staying on Fox Haven Farm, an organic farm and learning center outside of Frederick, Maryland, just an hour and a half outside of Washington, DC. Our home during the retreat is a restored farmhouse with big porches and even bigger views that's surrounded by fields, forests and trails. It's a cozy spot filled with handmade quilts and local treasures found on the property. We promise, you’ll love it.
