Wild Souls Retreat: Explore, Learn, Connect

Wild Souls Retreat: Explore, Learn, Connect

Calling all outdoorsy women! Join me in the heart of Pennsylvania’s forests for a long weekend of hiking, outdoor skills workshops, intentional movement, meditation, beautiful scenery, and delicious food. We will explore our connectedness to the natural world, ourselves, and each other through art and creative writing in nature, take part in immersive resort experiences, learn skills for backcountry trekking, and forge new friendships through food and fire. This is a space for women to come together who wish to increase their knowledge of backcountry hiking and backpacking, but also want to recharge, slow down, and build new and lasting connections that they can carry home with them.

Wellness with Nature

Resting on 150 acres, River Mountain is bordered by Sweet Root Creek, Warrior Ridge and Tussey Mountain. River Mountain's stunning spaces are designed for reflection, mindfulness, and good vibrations on your self-care journey. Creekside yoga platforms, a restored barn turned wellness space, and the calm of nature make this the ideal destination for peace and wellness.

Located just a few hours from D.C., Baltimore, and Pittsburgh, in the mountains of Pennsylvania, River Mountain is remote yet easy to access.


Warrior Path

Running parallel to River Mountain's eastern ridge is Warriors Path, the great Iroquois Indian highway from Six Nations country, New York, to the Catawba country in the Carolinas. The historic path along Sweet Root Creek was one of the longest and most heavily traveled land routes in eastern North America, connecting Indigenous peoples over hundreds of miles.

The Underground Railroad

Black Valley was an active route along the Underground Railroad. Local histories principally credit four, free black residents with leading the aid network in this area: Rev. John Fidler, Elias Rouse, Joseph Crawley, and James Graham. Just to the south of the River Mountain property are 13 unmarked graves of enslaved people who died traveling the route to freedom.
