This lesbian, woman-friendly cultural event is an unparalleled equalizer bringing together women of diverse race, culture, economics, education and age. The environment is earth-centered, nurturing and healing for body, mind and spirit.
This is a magical, unforgettable 4 days and 3 nights at Breitenbush Hot Springs Resort – 60 plus acres secluded in a Central Oregon old growth forest. Sleep in cozy, geothermally-heated cabins. Or bring your own tent and sleep out in a meadow with the deer. Soak in a pristine setting of open-meadow, natural hot springs pools, overlooking the Breitenbush River and the forested mountain slopes. Energize with 100 plus interesting, funny and creative women.
Three plentiful vegetarian meals are provided daily with herb teas and beverages. Effort is made to accommodate special dietary needs. Sack lunches are available for walks or day hikes through the ancient forest. Breitenbush is drug and alcohol free.
Lots of spaces to explore and hang out in: the historic lodge, Forest Shelter building, straw bale building, quiet Sanctuary, meadow and forest gathering spots for workshops, discussion groups, drumming or meditating.
The orientation Thursday evening is the beginning of the magic at Women in the Woods, where what you want is what you get. If you’re looking for schedules, meetings and structure: that will not happen. If you’re looking for a particular sport, craft, discussion group or activity – you make it happen. Experience your days and nights in exciting, women-created flowing, changing and surprising ways. You won’t want to leave.
