Reignite Retreat

SHYNE is celebrating 5 Years! Join us on Sapelo Island for a weekend of ritual, celebration and space to BE as we Reignite the spiritual connection between ourselves as Women, Daughters and Mothers. There will be ocean time, river time, song and dance. Womanhood, Sisterhood and Motherhood. Eldership, Girlhood and Healthy Community. We’ll fellowship, take island tours and even have a basket making class! Love Consumption from the kitchen of Chef Teena Myers is on the menu. The Ancestral realm will be wide awake, and certainly, have its way! Above all, there will be LOVE... lots and lots and lots of it!

This retreat offers two different check-in days and multiple lodging packages including campout, single + shared rooms. Children are welcome.
