With the loving and supportive presence of their spirit sister and Feathered Pipe Foundation founder India Supera. Acclaimed authors, Jungian analysts, activists and leading voices in women’s spirituality, Jean Bolen and Monika Wikman return to the Ranch for their second women’s wisdom retreat. India has enjoyed every women’s retreat that Jean has led—with Jan Lovett-Keen, Brooke Medicine Eagle, Barbara McAfee and Monika Wikman—and the 2020 program during our 45th anniversary is certain to be a celebration of the strong, loving and inclusive spirit with which India founded the Feathered Pipe.

Jean Bolen & Monika Wikman - Women's EmpowermentThe Summer Solstice women’s retreat supports women who wish to explore their inner lives in an exquisitely nourishing nature setting. Together, we will tune into womb wisdom, our connection to Mother Earth, moon cycles and the particular seasons of our lives, as the land provides the ‘alchemical vessel’ for our exploration, integration and growth. We will meet in large and small circles throughout the week, all connected by a sacred center, listening to stories and myths that teach us how to use archetypal energies to guide and direct our lives.

Tapping into highly experiential modalities such as Jung’s active imagination, dreamwork, art, journal writing, movement, bodywork, time in nature and ritual, we will ‘seed’ the imagination in a sacred process of deep inner exploration and self-expression. Building the shared field in community, this workshop brings to life the enriching fruits of inspiration, fresh perspective, compassion, shadow integration, healing, insight and laughter.

Together, we will:

Share stories in sacred circle and participate in active-imagination and guided imagery
Lean into transition and support the seasons of our lives
Enjoy a scenic float down the Missouri River and gather around the fire after dark
Reap the lasting benefits of laughter, tears and rest

Summer Vacation Tip! Extend your time in peace and beauty while savoring Western hospitality by exploring the great West’s national park treasures either before or after your Feathered Pipe experience with Jean and Monika. Glacier National Park is a scenic 3.5 hour drive north and west of the Ranch, while Yellowstone is just a 4.5 hours drive south and east of the Ranch through some of the prettiest Western territory you’ll ever see.
