What is the Summit?

The road turns, and you’re hugging the coastline of the Northumberland straight.  You’ve got your car packed with the essentials: a sleeping bag, a towel or two, a set of dishes, and maybe your tent, but you know there will be a cozy place to sleep (tent or no), and glorious local, organic food to eat. Between the whitewashed cottages and bungalows, the warm sand and the ocean beyond flickers like a film.  You glimpse the sign for Marine Drive–just in time–and you turn onto the gravel-lane.  Is this it?  You see the white sails of the yurt, and only feet away, the pristine expanse of sand, salt-water and blue sky at the same time that you hear laughter, and women’s voices.  This is it.

You’re welcomed with warmth, and shown the basics: bathrooms, wash-up station, and the schedule of events.  The weekend is packed with workshops, classes, talks and events: art, mothering, birthing, living, movement, community, creation, loving.  Maybe you’re here to learn, perhaps you’re here to escape, or to meditate on the beach.  The itinerary is up to you.  Maybe you’re seeking the community that eludes you in your everyday life, or to grow the community that already nurtures your soul so well.  In any case, you’ve come to get what you need, to create connections with other women; to enjoy the gourmet meals included; to feel the sand between your toes and the salt on your skin, and to bask in the love that we have to offer each other.  Welcome to the third-annual New Brunswick Womyn’s Summit.  We’re so glad you’re here.

The third-annual New Brunswick Womyn’s Summit is an opportunity for womyn to come together to share our knowledge from the past and present, and to bring together a new vision for the future;  a future that embraces a sharing of our collective capacity for joy, healing, birthing, mothering, aging, and living holistically, in community with one another.

*

The program will feature over 15 workshops taught by wise womyn teachers, community leaders, healers, birth-workers, and fellow-seekers.  The Summit is the place to be this summer, for learning new skills, exploring different ways of seeing and being in the world, and for acquiring new tools for thinking critically about our society in order to transform the planet for ourselves, our children, and future generations.
