You are cordially invited to the 4th Annual Comadres Network Retiro

It is in this spirit of our ancestral teachings and in the Círculo tradition that we respectfully invite you to attend this 2 and 1/2 day women’s gathering in friendship and sisterhood.

This will be a relaxed retreat in a ceremonial atmosphere to rebalance and heal from harmful experiences we carry and offer gratitude for our gifts as women.  Because we will be holding sacred space for each other, this will be an *alcohol and drug-free*gathering.If you have received this invitation it is because you were specially invited to attend by the National Comadres Advisory group and/or are a part of the larger La Cultura Cura Network.  Please use this link to register and keep in mind that this is on a first-come first-serve basis.  Total cost is $220 per person (which covers cost of food, lodging, supplies, and commemorative T-shirt).

Please note that at this time Mission San Antonio de Pauda only has the capacity to provide a selective amount of vegetarian meals. In the future we hope to be able to offer additional meal options.

NCN has continued to build the work of honoring the belief that all people are sacred, by focusing on the affirmation and inclusion of members of our community who identify as being “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, Transgender, Two Spirit (LGBTQ2S)”. We invite all our relations to the circulo as their full sacred self, however they identify and chose to express that identity.

Special thanks and acknowledgement to the National Compadres Network for helping to make this gathering possible.
