Transformational Retreat with Annie Finch
Word-Witchery retreats, open to all who identify as women, weave the Healing Rhythms of Words into a holistic week of witchy wisdom for mind, body, heart, will, and spirit. Below is more detailed information. If you would be interested in participating in such an event, just sign the form at the bottom of the page to ensure you are kept up-to-date.
Each day, we will journal together into the rhythms of the elements —air, earth, water, fire, and the spirit matrix—learning the secrets the wise words of each rhythm have to teach us. Our journey will also include ceremony, meditation, yoga, dynamic workshops in essential skills from prosperity to sexuality, and free time to relax and absorb. Supported by the warm community of women who will attend the retreat, you will find yourself coming home to yourself in ways that will last!

Comments From Previous Workshop Participants
“The workshop was enriching and magical! It was amazing to experience how the rhythms spoke to different parts of our healing processes. I have continued to work on what I acquired that day and note its continuous affects on my creative life as well as my mindset. What was additionally awesome is that I went to the workshop with an acute backache I had been suffering from and when I left the workshop, my backache was no longer.”
“It was really incredible. I don’t remember how long it’s been since I cried when reading my words aloud.”
“I felt on a deep level that your workshop and exercises and your instruction were magical, and I feel transformed in a way that has already helped me work through a much-needed transformation and healing in regards to some difficult personal subject matter. I believe I can use the structures you gave us today to continue to move through my healing process . . . I feel I've already made some big breakthroughs during today's workshop!”
“Annie Finch is a teacher who speaks with sincerity and integrity, allowing students to examine the inner workings of their psyche in a supportive and kind environment. Annie is the teacher that many of us yearn for, and some are lucky enough to work with. There is such a need for her earth and heart based teachings.”
