Other Preparation

we will be joining in two thought-based activities, and ask for some light preparation in advance.

Friday evening: please come with an "intention" for the weekend in mind. it can be a single word, a sentiment, a phrase. we will be anonymously sharing these in a group setting as we begin our time together.

saturday lunch "article club": we invite you to share an article, story, poem, or quote about a woman you admire with the group. please email your submission to alexandra in advance so she can compile. everyone will leave with a mini-anthology of reading to take home with them, compiled by the women in our family. we will have a brief discussion over lunch on saturday.

 

Accommodations

All accommodations are on a first-come, first served basis based on RSVP date.

We have room for a set number of sleeping bags/air mattresses in the house, as well as 1 parking space for a camper on the street. you should expect to share a room comfortably with two other women.

while we expect to be able to fit everyone in the house, There is room for overflow camping in the yard, and volunteers for "camping" are welcomed.

there are two showers in the house. we are on a septic system,so we do request you keep your shower as short as possible to avoid taxing it.

“We need women who are so strong they can be gentle, so educated they can be humble, so fierce they can be compassionate, so passionate they can be rational, and so disciplined they can be free.

We need uncommon women for these uncommon problems. And how deeply reassuring to me it is to know that wherever we go, there you will be.”
