Womyn’s Summit 2018 honours The Wisdom Years: our collective yearning to learn at the feet of our ancestors, the wild wise wimyn and grandmothers in our communities. To listen to stories savoured through the ages, remember our instincts, and garner precious knowledge for ourselves and our families. This traditional way of transmuting valuable information has been lost and we crave to pay homage to the great Crone, both in physical form and within ourselves. Come and revere the Wise Womyn, and in turn delve deeper into the wisdom well within you.
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 in nature. 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 grass between your toes and the sun on your skin, and to bask in the love that we have to offer each other. Welcome to Womyn’s Summit. We’re so glad you’re here.
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.
This year we’ll be adding a track of workshops specifically for maidens, as well as a healing tent to augment your deep experience. And, as always, we’ll enjoy over 15 workshops led by wise womyn, a contemplation tea house, nourishing vegetarian food, evening entertainment, a night market, swimming in the lake, and so much more. The Summit is a place 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.
Join us in Glen Margaret, Nova Scotia, in a gorgeous yurt, as we live, love, play and learn together, for three magical days.
