Connect with the authentic aliveness that you are. This weekend is an opportunity to do just that—and to discern your unfolding path within an attentive, caring, fun community of women.

We live in a fast paced world where we hear a lot about living in the NOW and attending to our soul’s purpose. But many of us are too busy with day-to-day responsibilities to pay attention to the deeper soul currents that guide our lives. The result is that used-up, dried-out feeling. Where is the juice? The joy? The deep meaning that we crave?

Join in this “time-out” weekend. After drinking deeply at our collective well of wisdom, we can return to daily life renewed in body, mind, and soul.

In this retreat, you will:

  • Get rid of those old guilt messages that keep spontaneity at bay.
  • Have fun for its own sake as well as be more productive and centered.
  • Learn how to manage the mind so that it quits attacking you and others.
  • Develop a spiritual practice that feels right for you.
  • Create sacred ritual and your own personal chant.
  • Optimize your health and well-being.
  • Understand the four quadrants of the feminine life cycle.
  • Sing, connect, laugh and have fun!

Treat yourself and invite your friends to this revitalizing weekend retreat—A Woman’s Time Out with JOAN & KAREN.



“The experience was so much greater than I expected. I was amazed at how deep of a connection that was created in such a short time. The music was very beautiful and inspiring. I always felt at ease and peaceful during every session.”

“Joan and Karen created a sacred space and cultivated a soul-opening and deeply revelatory experience. Keep having women’s retreats!“

"Karen and Joan: Thank you for the magical experience of sharing your presence at Hollyhock.  You provided an engaging and creative opportunity for self exploration, guiding us through music and your wisdom."
