Mothering Ourselves

A women's retreat honoring the divine feminine


Friday, May 17 - Sunday, May 19, 2019

Early bird pricing guaranteed when paid in full by March 15, 2019.


The world can be overwhelming.

As women, we take on so much.

We caretake our partners, kids, careers, homes, friends, and families. 

Who is usually last on the list?


When is the last time you felt deeply nurtured?

What was the last thing you did simply for you?
Because you wanted to? Because you felt called?

Listen to the call...

Deep within your heart...

She is longing to be heard, felt and seen.

Waiting to exhale and relax. Asking to be taken care of.

Come honor your own divine mother that is inside you,
and look after your inner child.


In a magical space at Heaven and Earth Retreats in Banks, OR,

you’ll find deep nourishment and experience rich connection and rejuvenation through mindfulness, nature, movement, creativity, and ritual
shared in sisterhood with other women in our small intimate group.

Nestled in the mountains 40 minutes west of Portland, this unique, delightful retreat is tucked away on five pristine, forested acres with stunning views. 

Return to your family, friends, co-workers, and clients relaxed, energized, and with a greater sense of connection to yourself.

About Our Retreat Space
Heaven and Earth Retreats is a beautiful home that's been converted to a retreat center. Therefore, the experience is more intimate than a hotel. There are 2 full bathrooms, a deluxe and tricked out outdoor bathroom, and an outdoor shower.

"This is a space that feels like being at a relative's house, it's cozy and clean, and so inviting and welcoming. I feel so taken care of by Ruthanne, her cooking, her nurturing style and the environment she's designed. She's thought of everything to make her guests feel completely at ease." SC
