Women’s retreats to help you rediscover your power and move to a more peaceful and meaningful existence! Do you remember? Do you recall what it felt like to be outside in nature and there was nothing else but peace, happiness and a sense of belonging? Do you remember how it felt to know that you could do anything, be creative, have a sense of wonder and be able to use your own intuition? If you remember bits and pieces, but don’t practice any of this in your daily life, then come and join us. Let us lead you to rediscover that inner child which has been (in a lot of people) buried so deep it is barely existent. Magical Earth Retreats provides the space, place and opportunity for women to re- connect with mother nature with the goal of changing the destructive route of the human race one child/person at a time with love, light, peace and creativity.


Mountainsong Expeditions
Worcester, VT;
Mountainsong Expeditions offers workshops in skills for living close to the land and guided wilderness trips in northern New England. Our home base is in central Vermont, on the banks of the North Branch river and under the shadow of Worcester Mountain. We believe that traveling in the backcountry, on foot or by canoe, has the ability to empower people’s courage, clarify their priorities, and get them in touch with their most authentic selves. Our trips and classes not only teach you all the skills you need to enter the wilderness with confidence, but also honor the spiritual renewal of the experience through song, ceremony, and community-building. Our skill-based classes include the Village Medic Training, the Huntress Intensive, a Hide Tanning Weekend, and much more.
