Time to Celebrate!

TEN YEARS.  In The Company of Women has been welcoming ALL women for ten years to a week of fun in the sun by the ocean at Ferry Beach in Maine. We gather to sing, dance, do art, drum, write, swim, kayak, bike, eat ice cream, and play games. We also gather to just be present among our sisters and celebrate the beauty of this second home to many of us. We share stories, affirm one another's gifts, and voice our dreams. We celebrate friendships that have been built these past years, and the ones that are yet to come.

Mornings we meet in groups that share a themed focus. Our afternoons offer a variety of workshops, spontaneous activities, quiet time, and the lure of the sea. You can create, enjoy nature trips, join our drumming circle, attend a porch chat, or kayak the Saco River. After dinner, we gather as a community to enjoy dancing, Women's Jeopardy, the Talent Show Coffeehouse, and a ritual in the Grove. Night owls can be found playing games at the dining hall, talking on Quillen porch, or stargazing on the beach.

Every year we select a theme that helps shape our intentions for the week. This year our theme will be CELEBRATIONS. What better way to mark our tenth anniversary in the company of ALL the women who have gathered by the beach than by celebrating the joy of gathering? Celebrate Life, Love, Family, Friends, and your Self.  We will celebrate all of this, together.
