Why Thirteen Moons

Why Thirteen  Moons? This is the most common question asked about the name of this retreat centre. The Moon has always been the primary symbol of feminine energy and wisdom.

Each year the moon completes thirteen lunar cycles, which we celebrate during our monthly full moon drumming circles.

By honouring the various phases of the moon, women can reawaken, reconnect to and strengthen their true feminine nature.

The moon also influences entertaining and caretaking where food is often the central theme. The power of food to heal, nourish and soothe our bodies, minds and spirits is a key component of the Thirteen Moons experience.
