Sacred Embodiment
Fall 2022 Women’s Weekend Retreat
with Rev. Connie L. Habash
October 21 – 23, 2022


The body is our Divine vehicle for this lifetime, yet we rarely embody it with joy, vibrance, and the knowing that it, too, is sacred. When we aren’t fully embodied, we can feel ungrounded, disconnected, stressed out, and miss out on fully participating in life.

Rediscover the experience of being joyfully alive in your body in the present moment, and how it can deepen your connections with others and your spirituality, too! You’ll be supported and nurtured in a group of women dedicated to personal growth and spiritual awakening. Immerse in yoga, meditation, presence, deep nature connection practices, heartfelt sharing and group processes, and a sprinkling of sacred solitude.

  • Daily yoga, meditation classes, and presence practice
  • Moderate hiking and nature exploration
  • Group exercises, discussion, movement, and creative practices
  • Free time to relax
  • Accommodations for two nights
  • All meals (vegetarian)

Connie’s leadership is exceptional

Connie’s leadership is exceptional. Her seasoned experience as a group leader, therapist, minister/lover of life and attention to detail allowed me (a natural organizer and caretaker) to truly let go into “retreat” and receive the gifts of relaxation, rejuvenation, connection, and Nature’s Beauty.

Thank you for a wonderful retreat

Thank you for a wonderful retreat. The space you created helped me be vulnerable, joyous, free, brave, and accepted.
