SisterSpirit is a spiritually focused, fun, dynamic, and transformative retreat for women.
Where is the retreat located?
Saratoga Springs Retreat and healing center has been selected especially for its beauty and spiritual energy. It is located just outside of Upper Clear Lake, CA. The atmosphere is welcoming and serene, and the grounds are level. The center has a rich history dating back to 1871, and before that, the valley in which it sits was used by the Pomo Indians for peacemaking and healing. The Heart Lodge, a beautiful 2,000 sq. ft. all-purpose room, has a radiant heated floor and stone fireplace. There is a large swimming pool, hot tub, stone labyrinth, and numerous hiking trails in the private 260-acre scenic valley. This is a great place to get away from it all!
Who can attend SisterSpirit?
Women 18 and older and from all walks of life are welcome. While our retreat
has a schedule that helps you to focus on a central theme, you can participate
as much as you choose and attend only the events you wish. This retreat is for
you and all you need do is take care of yourself.
What time does the retreat start and end?
We ask you to arrive between 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. on Thursday. The retreat ends at 1 p.m. on Sunday.
NOTE: We request that attendees stay after, if possible, to help the retreat team pack up. With many hands helping, we can be done as early as 3 p.m.
What accommodations can I expect?
Rooms are dorm style with bunk and double beds. Bathrooms are shared. A limited number of private cabins are available, however, without bathrooms. There is also an option to camp on the beautiful grounds. Bring a tent, camper, or motor home, though be aware hook-ups are not available. Bathrooms and showers are nearby.
What do I need to bring?
As the date for Sister Spirit nears, you will receive a letter with further information on preparing for Sister Spirit. Please feel free to bring any additional items that will make your stay more enjoyable. No pets are allowed.
