Spiral To The Dream.... And Awaken To Connection

Spiral To The Dream.... And Awaken To Connection is CroneWorks's 4th Annual Women's Retreat. We gather at lovely Trinity Center ( on Emerald Isle Friday, Oct. 9 - Sunday, Oct. 11. This intimate retreat affords 24 women the opportunity to relax, laugh, play, dance, drum, sing and rejoice in divine connection. Space is running out, so please register quickly! Complete retreat information, schedule, and registration information is available on my website -

Our journey this year will take us on a path of connectedness within ourselves, with other retreat participants, and with our brothers and sisters across the globe. The spiral is our retreat symbol this year. Long a symbol of the divine feminine, the spiral leads us gently inward as we examine all those important dreams held in our hearts, and guides us outward toward healing actions for Mother Earth.

CroneWorks, an organization I lead, offers retreats, workshops, and rituals throughout the year that focus on bringing peace and understanding around the world. We are a collaboration of social workers, nurses, business executives, artists, writers, and educators. Our Practical Spirituality Retreat series began four years ago with a retreat focused on peace. We have evolved over the years to look more deeply at our connection to ourselves and the world around us.

Trinity Center, our retreat site, is simply beautiful. Owned by the Episcopal Diocese of East Carolina, Trinity lodging and meeting spaces are nestled in the maritime forest, bordered on the west by the Intracoastal Waterway. On the east, the Atlantic offers long stretches of quiet, nearly deserted beach, perfect for walking and meditating. We will build an ocean-front labyrinth as part of the retreat activities.

Rooms are simple, and open onto wooden decks with inviting rockers. Each room has a double bed and a single bed, and a private bath. All linens are provided. Excellent food is served in the dining room, with choices for vegetarians available.

Please join us in October. Some of our participants have had life-altering experiences at our retreats. Here are a few comments from prior retreats:

"The retreat changed my life! I'm a different, better person!"

"I changed my name name after attending - I really am a different person!"

"Thanks, Deb, for such a wonderful, fun, relaxing experience."

peace and blessings,
