RELEASE & RENEW – November 3-5, 2023
Welcome mamas! We are so excited to retreat with you!
As you know, the theme of this retreat is “Release and Renew” so we’ll be spending time releasing what no longer serves and renewing your soul during this beautiful weekend. Throughout the weekend, we’ll engage in a series of activities, rituals and practices to help facilitate this. Come with an open heart and ready to invite transformation.
Below you will find information on carpooling, arrival details, room assignments, daily schedule, packing list, our mama altar, and emergency info.

Sombrilla Springs is located around 7500 feet elevation where the weather can be unpredictable. Days can be warm, while evenings can be cold (like beanie and down jacket cold). And May is always unpredictable as we know. Please bring LOTS OF LAYERS plan accordingly. Here are some starter ideas:
- Hiking shoes/boots

- Altar items (see below)
We will have a central altar for the retreat so we ask each of you to bring 2 special things:
- A token/item that represents this time in your life or a certain transformation you’re undergoing to put on the altar (this can be a piece of jewelry, artifact, art, photo, etc.). You will take this back home with you
- An organic item that you’d like to add to the offering we make at the end of the retreat (this can be a leaf, flower, wood, thread, ashes, etc.) This offering is customary after we’ve done some soulful healing work throughout the weekend and we will offer it either to the earth, water or fire.
The nearest hospital is St. Anthony Keystone Mountain Clinic.
