4 Day 3 Night Solar Eclipse Retreat with Women Rising Wild – Glen Rose, Texas

At our Women Rising Wild Initiation Retreat in Glen Rose, Texas, April 6-9, 2024, you will experience the solar eclipse in the path of totality while we attune to the brilliance of our own true nature through sacred community living and outdoor immersion at Fossil Rim Wildlife Center and nearby natural areas. Witness firsthand the charge of creative energy and wild intelligence boldly alive in the bodies of the plants and animals we encounter. Then, with attention on this mirror to your potential and the support of our facilitators we journey into the wild landscape of the feminine soul where we will uncover the knowledge of who we each are and birth some of the unique, untethered medicine gifts of our true belonging. An eco-stewardship seva project and conscious sisterhood on the land invite us into an intimate co-embodiment of love in a conscious relationship with each other and the more-than-human world.

It is said that “Within every woman, there is a wild and natural creature, a powerful force, filled with good instincts, passionate creativity, and ageless knowing.” Her name is “Wild Woman.” And within the “wild nature” of woman is “the medicine for all things.” Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Ph.D., author of Women Who Run With the Wolves

Register for this rare, once-in-a-lifetime event today. The next total eclipse viewable is not until 2044. Learn more about the 2024 event and why this solar eclipse will be so special here.

Location in Texas:
Our April 2024 Total Solar Eclipse Women Rising Wild in Glen Rose, Texas takes place on a private ranch and sanctuary and in collaboration with Fossil Rim Wildlife Conservation Center. This rolling and rugged Cross Timbers landscape on the Osage Plains of Texas is home to massive pecan trees, old oak woods, and sacred cedar grasslands. The retreat site is approximately 90 minutes from Dallas and two and a half hours from Austin. Houston to Glen Rose is four hours by car. Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport is the closest major airport serving the region. Carpooling is encouraged when possible to minimize our carbon footprint. Specific details and driving directions will be provided to participants after registering for the event.

Driving or flying in from out of state or other parts of Texas? We have caravans forming from Denver, Dallas, Houston, and Austin. Flights into Dallas are quickly disappearing. Fly into Denver or Austin and ride-share with local women to our event in Glen Rose. Contact us to discuss options.
