Summer Sun, Sacred Repair: A Weekend of Joy and Healing for Women Ages 45 and Older


It’s so important to gather and share in small circles at every stage of life. So if you haven’t gathered in circle with a bunch of like minded women in a while, now’s the time. Circles are inherently magical; and to gather in one is a tremendous medicine that can help ground you and remind you that you aren’t “crazy”…or maybe that you are and that’s okay, too.

This weekend will include daily yoga, most meals, leisure time at the beach, paddleboarding, enriching time with supportive herbs, a power-filled ceremony for balance and healing, and a healthy dose of fun! Space is limited to 11 weekenders and 8 daytrippers, so we recommend reserving your space early.

Please note: Deposits are strictly non-refundable, however you may transfer it to apply toward a friend who will be coming in your stead. Payment must be made in full by Aug 5th. No refunds are granted after August 5th. We suggest that if something arises that will prevent you from attending, please either gift or sell your space on the retreat to a friend.

The Yummy Details

You can join this weekend as a DAYTRIPPER (those who will commute and have accommodations off site) or as an overnight WEEKENDER (those who wish to sleep at Shilo Farm). Either way, plan to arrive at our retreat space between 4:00p and 6:00p Friday, August 23rd. Your weekend will conclude with a closing ceremony on Sunday for a 1:00p departure. Space is limited to 11 weekenders and 7 day trippers, so we do recommend reserving your space early.

Below is a fluid itinerary. Our goal is to provide a container for your practice of connection and self care. So if you wish to sleep in until noon, that’s perfectly fine with us.

About Sacred Repair

As humans we house within us a number of archetypes: Maiden, Warrior, Victim, Teacher, Child, etc.  Archetypes are not necessarily gender, age, or even vocation specific, but rather unique characteristics or aspects of your whole self. For example, I am frequently working with my Warrior, Maiden, and Crone to keep my Shadow Sister in a healthy space. My point is you don’t need to be a healer, a teacher, a mother, an amazon, or a prostitute to have these archetypes within your healthy make up.

Sacred Repair provides a safe container for you to work with your archetypes to bring balance and healing to your whole self. Sacred Repair invites you to step into your archetypal role of Healer and begin to repair wounds within your archetypal make up whether the wounding stems from your personal landscape or the world landscape.

You are many things to many people — and that’s just “at home”. On the world landscape, stories that demand your attention/action/compassion/support begin unfolding before they’ve even met their conclusion. In this way, like it our not, you become part of every hurt that unfolds — each incident leaving an indelible mark on your being. It would seem…together we are wounded, but together we can heal.

Sacred Repair is a purposeful act of defiance to mend the sacred within. Sacred Repair is the necessary and potent reminder that you are deserving of the time it takes to process and heal and most importantly, you are held and you are not alone.


MEET YOUR GUIDES

MEET ERICA NUNNALLY    I am a ‘rootless’ Medicine Woman.  My ancestral lineage is indigenous peoples of North America — Nansemond and Choctaw — as well as Irish and African peoples. Some might say "the Medicine is in my blood." I was born with proclivities toward Animism, Energy work, and Earth based medicines. But, as most children of this modern era, my upbringing afforded no exposure to the medicine people of my ancestral lineage who might teach me the ways of our people. This truth lead to the birth of my definition of 'rootless' —  to be without one clear source.   Lacking familial teachers, I followed my soul song to my Medicines and teachers from around the globe — yoga, reiki, herbalism — until, one summer, the path cleared and lead me to my first two teachers who would guide my studies in the ways of shamanism.  I found my teachers in two women, one a Lakota pipe carrier and the other a high priestess of the Ceann-luil. In their own words, they “showed me what I already knew”.   I am a traditional animist, an intuitive energy worker, a spiritually guided healer a steward of this earth and its medicines. I’m a sacred drum maker and an ever present student of shamanism.    My offering to you is one of my soul and guided by my Helping Spirits anchored by my ancestral studies and acceptance of shamanic practices and gifts from my teachers, both indigenous and ‘rootless’ alike, from around the globe.   As a practitioner of both universal and earth medicines, my role as a Medicine Woman is to hold the space between.   Learn more  HERE .
