Women’s Fall 2017 Retreat – Outside-In!
A Day For Women in Community with Rev. Connie L. Habash
When summer ends, we turn inward. We long to feel peace, to embody our True Self, and to deepen our connection with the Divine.
Come together as women and begin your inner journey through autumn on this special day. We’ll not only “search inside ourselves”, but we’ll bring what’s outside in nature – the inspiration, beauty, and lessons – into our hearts and souls.
- Yoga and Movement
- Deep Nature Connection
- Creative Expression
- Group Processes
- Sharing in Supportive Community
- Includes a delicious vegetarian lunch!

At Ananda Valley Farm, Half Moon Bay, CA
Ananda Valley Farm is a secluded, idyllic farm in Half Moon Bay, with a year-round creek, pond, flowers, and hiking trails. This special place facilitates a deep connection to each other, the natural world, and Spirit.
Our retreat includes yoga and meditation, deep nature connection, large and small group activities, and immersing in the energies of this sacred land and the reflective energy of autumn.
There is time to relax, too, while feasting on a delicious vegetarian lunch.
Limited partial work-trade scholarships are available for those needing financial assistance, and you may also donate to the scholarship fund to support them.

Katie Hicks leads the youth program. She began her journey in the fossil-laden creeks of southern Indiana. As a teen and young adult she spent six years attending the W.I.L.D. (Wilderness Immersion Leadership Development) program where she slept monthly in primitive shelters through rain and snow, studied scouting, bird language, and natural history, and went on 2 3-day group survival trips carrying only a knife and living off the land. She spent a year training with deep nature connection leaders Jon & Nicole Young and was lead instructor for their all-ages village-style nature immersion program in the Santa Cruz mountains. Katie continues to work as a deep nature connection mentor in Santa Cruz. On her free time she can be found on California’s wild coasts swimming with harbor seals or exploring through huckleberry patches. She is passionate about singing, fiddling, dancing, and making fun mischief in nature with people young and old.
