At four 3.5 day Lodge retreats at beautiful Galleywinter Farm and Retreat Center, nestled in the Blue Ridge mountains in Central Virginia, you will eat yummy, nourishing meals, find love and support for all of who you are, build a personal personal mesa (medicine bundle), share stories of trauma and triumph in intimate sharing circles, sing sacred songs, drum, dance, meditate with mindfulness and loving kindness, learn how to pray  to and for all beings, and hear wisdom teachings to help you walk with courage, authenticity, power, and love in your life.
