Women’s Wilderness Hiking, Meditation and Creativity Retreat


August 24 – 28, 2017


Spend five days and four nights in the stunning Trinity Alps of Northern California combining wilderness adventure and contemplative practice with other women.  Each day will include periods of silence and mindfulness meditation, hiking, yoga, arts & crafts, creative writing, an evening talk and plenty of time to soak up the beauty of the natural world.


At 6,400′, we’ll be nestled in the beautiful 400-acre alpine lake basin of Camp Unalayee, just six hours north of San Francisco. Surrounded by rugged peaks and saw-tooth ridges, we’ll live outside and camp under the stars. Dozens of jewel-like lakes and clear-flowing streams are within easy hiking distance of the Camp basin, providing destinations for day-hikes, swimming and solitude.



A Typical Day:

Mornings will be held in silence and begin with yoga and meditation, followed by breakfast and a quiet hike. Lunch will be either on the trail or back at camp. The afternoon options include arts & crafts, creative writing, meditation, swimming in the lake or even a taking a nap. The choice is yours. After dinner we’ll meet around a campfire for meditation, an evening talk and return to silence until after breakfast the next morning.


We’ll enjoy fresh vegetarian meals with accommodation for those with dietary limitations. Please be aware that this retreat will be free of recreational drugs and alcohol.


This is a wilderness adventure. There is no electricity, cell service or indoor plumbing, but there are pit toilets and solar showers.


Come join us for this very special women’s wilderness retreat! We’ll be supported by the Camp staff which may include men.
