HoneyRoot's Summer Embodiment Retreat is an annual celebration of Women's Embodiment, Sisterhood, and Intergenerational Collaboration. It's a place to explore, expand, and truly inhabit ourselves as women. It's a full-spectrummed (re)treat, a body-deep remembering, and a powerful integration for the feminine soul.

We host a dynamic convergence of embodied women. Through an array of soulful, enlivening, deep-diving course offerings, we extend a four-day invitation to come home to your body and to the precious bond of sisterhood. We bring younger women an opportunity to embark upon rites of passage held in the hearts and devotion of the larger community, and we invite women dancing the dance of elderhood to bring us their playfulness, their shyness, their longing, the good medicine of their life experience, and the treasures of their hard-won wisdom. 150 acres of natural beauty, a gorgeous creek, deliciously prepared food, evening rituals, live music, and S P A C E to just be.

Located among the pines, oaks, and maples of Shady Creek Retreat Center in Nevada City, CA, HoneyRoot provides opportunities for us to open our bodies to the wisdom that lives inside each of us and the love that inhabits our collective heart.

We, organizers and facilitators, do our best to create a strong container, a safe playground, and a loving womb for the sake of the realization of our feminine embodiment. We look forward to welcoming you into the Hive this summer!

Tonight I see the connection between stars
Even the faintest are attached
Thin lines drawing channels of support
to and from the most delicate and the brightest lights

Sisters...Oracles... Allies tying their strings together

Times long ago connecting to times unimagined and here now

Feed these lines sisters....
Tracking stardust between
Tracing the veins of all our soul's and body's lineage
with our feet and fingers...
our eyes...our heart

There is strength in this web

~Elise Anderson, HoneyRoot sister


A woman who has uncovered and honors her intimacy with the earth through developing a relationship with nature or through the power within her own body carries a wisdom of infinite mystery and potential. She moves through life with one foot in a strange ocean, one on the solid land of her ordinary life. This is not just an idea, but a way to live. Mystics, artists, and mothers of young children know this ability to be half-absorbed in unnamable creative forces.
