June 1-4, 2023 | Santa Barbara, CA

As women, we know the power of being nature wise. When we connect to our own inner wisdom, to Mother Nature, and listen to our own hearts, minds, bodies, and guts, we live from the womb of the Earth—from our wombs that create the universe—and we live in balance. Too often, we forget this and live out of balance. We are also keenly tied into the cycles of life. From waves in the ocean to the changing of the seasons, from fertility to birth, Moon rise, Sun set, the circle of life.

The Pause is an integral stage within each cycle, for as Nature shows us, the pause creates room for rest and recovery, both necessary for success. For life.

This is true for human and non-human ecosystems. We would not be here without this process. In today’s go, go, go world, we often forget the pause and we forget the wisdom of Nature and our own nature.

 TAKE TIME to RECONNECT with MOTHER NATURE and YOUR OWN NATURE
Join us for this NATUREWISE Women’s Weekend Quest

Pause and Regenerate

Inspired by Indigenous and nature-based wisdom teachings, your retreat will include solo time, group ceremonies, reflection exercises, and gentle physical movement designed to engage your body while also opening your heart and mind. Meals will be plant based and prepared using locally grown, fresh produce.

Your Guide

This private, intimate, and restorative coastal gathering will include elements of a Vision Quest, as taught to our guide, Kimberly Pinkson, who started going out on Quest with her Dad, Dr. Tom “Tomás” Pinkson, when she was 13-years old. The ceremonies and traditions you will experience on this NATUREWISE Womem’s Weekend Quest carry on the lineage and traditions Dr. Pinkson was taught by his Indigenous mentors beginning over 55 years ago, that he has passed on to his daughters, and they now share with you.

INTEGRATION

The NatureWise Co. is anchored by our belief that the solutions to the biggest challenges of our times will be found by following the wisdom of nature. And that rather than just thinking about how to be sustainable, we can be thinking about being regenerative, which is a much more exciting and optimistic perspective. Inspired by our Dad's pioneering work with Indigenous medicine and spirituality, we're just some of the players in the early stages of the Regenerative Revolution!
