Join us this February, for our annual Mothering Retreat at Pelican House on the beautiful grounds of Trinity Center. The image of Life-Womb will guide our time together during this contemplative retreat. Through storytelling, contemplative practices, silence and painting, we will listen to our mothering journeys of bearing, holding, and birthing; celebrating the ways that we create womb-space for what is ours to birth in the world.
Making room for new life to flourish often brings growth pains. By tending to our personal Life-Womb with paint, inquiry and quiet intention, we open ourselves to hear the still, small voice. As part of our time together, you will be guided to create a visual expression of symbol and beauty which honors the ebb and flow of what is uniquely yours to bring to fruition. No painting experience required, only a willing spirit!
Our retreat leaders are Monica Citty Hix and Ally Markotich. Monica is a minister, musician, artist, retreat leader, and spiritual companion who currently serves as Pastoral Musician at First Friends Quaker Meeting in Greensboro, NC. She is the Founding Director of Inner Ground, Inc.
Ally is from Pinehurst, NC. She is a writer, artist and trained Intentional Creativity Teacher who shares her spiritual journey on her blog, Soul Kindling. Ally and Monica met during their years at Columbia Theological Seminary where they both earned the Certificate in Spiritual Formation.
The weekend together includes all your meals (the food is fabulous!) and your choice of a private or shared room in the beachfront house. Art supplies are provided for the creative expression piece of the retreat. Registration fees are $300 for a private room and $250 for a shared room. Please note that registration fees are non-refundable. This retreat is open to all women, whether or not you have birthed and nurtured children. We believe that as women we are all called to the sacred art of mothering and birthing.
