We gather to embrace the wise women we have become, with passion and patience. Once maidens and mothers, we are now crones (aka wise and holy women) seeking to live into the fullness of our lives. Together, we redefine retirement and gain strength and support from sister crones. Through deep sharing, art, movement, and music, we are enriched and filled with renewed energy for this exciting time in our lives. Participants can expect to gain a deeper understanding of the legacy we are living and to claim our rightful place as leaders and healers in a world that needs us to step into our power.
