She Who Laughs Retreat
With Lauretta Hannon
November 2 - 5, 2023
The She Who Laughs Retreat is a spirited gathering designed to get you closer to your flame. On a gorgeous mountain in Northeast Georgia, we will go deep and lightly, guided by the wisdom of the most badass women mystics in history. As we journey together on this spiritual adventure, we connect and uplift one another so that all may burn brighter.
What can you expect? Chef-prepared meals, bonfires, reflective journaling, teaching talks, free time, meditative walks, periods of silence, rest and play, special activities, time to listen to waterfall music and meet a 400-year-old hemlock tree thriving despite all the odds.
What else? A blessed respite from to-do lists, computer screens, and the dissonance of the world. Room to ask the soul-sized questions about your purpose and sacred stirrings. Practical guidance along with a focus on the essential, enduring things. All of this leads to one ultimate goal: to help you become more yourself–more joyful, free, peaceful, authentic, and wild.
A final note: do be ready to laugh, hard. As Anne Lamott says, “Laughter is carbonated holiness.” Your retreat leader, named “The Funniest Woman in Georgia” by Southern Living Magazine, wholeheartedly agrees.
