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.

Words from a new retreat client:

“Thank you for welcoming me into your beautiful space. I feel so blessed to have shared in the visioning workshop and drumming circle in addition to enjoying a wonderful retreat here. Thank you for taking care of all of my needs – from the delicious and nourishing food to the teas and blankets to keep me extra warm. I appreciate it all. I’m going into 2018 feeling profoundly grateful that I was called here.” HM, Toronto
