LOVED, LOVED, LOVED....I was so afraid of walking into a "yogi" retreat where I would have nothing in common with the women. It wasn't like that at all. Everyone was wonderful, kind, warm, accepting..../ hope to forge relationships for years to come.
It is amazing what this gathering has become for me - the anticipation, the actual ever and the feelings that are carried forward afterward.…. there are not adequate words to describe it all!
Enjoyed coming alone this year -- I feel like I met many more women and the conversations were deep and meaningful and lovely.
It's amazing (and unfortunately irregular) to be in such a safe and inclusive space that spans generations. The things I learned this weekend I will have with me forever.
Rise Gatherings is committed to keeping the safety of our retreat attendees clearly in focus at all times while creating meaningful and fun retreat experiences. Throughout the pandemic, Rise has been and will continue to rely upon CDC and state/local requirements and recommendations around COVID-19 safety.
Check in for the 2022 weekend begins at 1pm on Friday, September 30. Our first shared meal is dinner, so we recommend stopping for lunch on the way.
Friday afternoon is yours to join a movement class, sit by the lake, or settle in to your weekend home and enjoy the beautiful spaces before some all group activities geared to get you grounded and grooving. If you are going to be arriving late please let us know in advance.
Departure is 4pm on Sunday, October 2 after a blissful day that includes breakfast and lunch.
Say what? You won’t want to leave! Although attendees are allowed to leave early, Rise Weekend is packed with so much goodness – we recommend that you plan accordingly and enjoy the entire experience. However, if you need to leave early, please inform us before Rise begins.
If you need to leave the Weekend early for any circumstance, we are unable to prorate or refund your ticket. Please see our Terms & Conditions.
Our weekend home of Trail’s End is a premier overnight camp in the summer months as well as a wedding and retreat center for adult groups in the fall and spring.
There are a variety of options for accommodations. Please see our full list of accommodations so you can decide for yourself if you want to sleep in a cabin with 6 – 8 other women, a newly renovated suite with a small group, a quaint space with one or two friends, or in your own private room. All of the accommodations have screened windows, heat, and electricity; are a step out the door into nature; and have clean bathrooms, sinks, and showers.
Bunking Requests? You can get snuggly in a bunk or private room with your friends and family that are coming for the weekend! Provide us with your requests at ticket purchase or send us an email and we will be sure you are with your requests.
Nope – we’ve got you covered! You will be provided with bedding basics: towels, sheets, one pillow and a lightweight blanket. Feel free to supplement with your own cozy supplies if you think you’ll want more coverage! Check the weather and throw in an extra blanket if you think you’ll need one! Don’t worry, in addition to linens, we will send you a detailed packing list so you are fully prepared.
Yes, you will be in good company! Some women come with friends, co-workers, sisters, mothers, daughters or neighbors, and many also come on their own. We provide bonding opportunities to cultivate community, as well as ample spaces to sit quietly by yourself. It’s your dream weekend, we encourage you to show up for yourself – by yourself! If you come on your own and choose a shared accommodation, we will assign you to a bunk with other awesome women like you who said “YOLO! I’m coming solo!”
The weekend is beautifully curated for you to create your own experience and choose from our 40+ workshop and workout offerings. A few weeks before the weekend you will receive an email with the full description of Rise workshops and facilitators and have the opportunity to reserve your spot in the workshops of your choosing. You will also have the opportunity to sign up for individual healing sessions with our incredible team of practitioners. All workshops and workouts are included in your ticket price; healing sessions are optional and are an additional charge.
Retreats aren’t just for yogis! Rise Weekend is “yoga optional!” There is a diverse array of offerings and every workshop welcomes the first timer and the pro. There are opportunities to participate in incredible movement and workout sessions and yoga is only one of the many options! You’ll choose the one that feels good to you. Many of our facilitators use meditation as a tool for growth and learning so you’ll have the opportunity to try it out or return to it as a way to connect to yourself.
Transformative, fun and freeing! Rise Gatherings workshops are facilitated experiences. Don’t expect to sit in rows and listen to lectures. Our facilitators are gifted experience creators and use a variety of ways to guide you to learn, grow and glow! In addition to imparting wisdom and tools, they will facilitate a full experience that may have you moving, talking, thinking and connecting – as much as you’d like within your comfort zone (or beyond!). We limit the number of participants in each workshop in order to keep them small and ensure an intimate space where you can have a meaningful experience with yourself and others.
Up to you! On Sunday there will be a Rise Marketplace with lots of uniquely awesome gifts and treats for you to purchase (cash or credit card) if you desire. But this can for sure be a no wallet weekend – all meals and workshop experiences are included.
