To register for any of these retreats contact Maureen at mwm@kos.net.



As our retreats evolve into study groups and away from the teacher student model,

we hope you will be encouraged to visit more frequently

and so keep a continuous learning curve in motion!



This model also means costs drop in half and so fees drop in half.




It also means you as the participant will have more opportunity to share

your understandings and teachings to a like minded group,

and also more responsibility to prepare and present on the theme chosen. 

We also suggest everyone brings a potluck dish and we will order only one catered meal. (rather than 5)


We are excited to move WS into such a collaborative Womb Wisdom School

…as a resource centre and a place to develop practices,

 and go deeply into remembering lost creation alchemy,

 specifically under the umbrella of Womb Wisdom.


Feel free to call Maureen at 613 396 3262



Retreats include catered 

 and vegan meals by Chef Chris of P.E.C.



Sleeping is communal,

we offer tenting “yurting” or indoor communal sleeping.

BYO sleeping bag and pillow.

Marking the sacredness of Samhain, when the veils are thin.

Fri. Nov. 2 at 7:00pm to Sunday NOv. 4th at noon- 2018



Welcome Helen Patton to Wyldwood Sojourn 


 I’ve been studying Hands On Healing for most of my life. I’m a certified yoga teacher  Thai practitioner and Reiki master. My passion is where I am now on my journey !  I am learning about my womb through my own visioning and my Tantric practices. I  share that with other women in circles.  The beauty and the power of Tantra yoga can gently guide us back to our womb back to our sacred self as creators.

Maureen and Helen discovered that they both held the same

  understanding- that women’s gift, is to draw the spiritual energies

down ward in order to birth things of great will ,weight and

soulfulness, into the world .

Woman’s path to enlightenment is polar opposite to the masculine

path of light and ascension. 

Come and discover what has been long hidden.

This exploration contains memories of our journeys with alchemy,

 sacred geometry and working with the 4 elements. We will engage with the

waterfalls and the the woods and hold ceremony in the Cosmic yurt. The tiny Dark

 lodge is our sanctuary for you to have quiet inner time to receive. There

will be art projects, lots of time for sharing in circle & we will offer you guided meditations, in the dark, to draw energies down and circulate.

Karen Holmes is our guest speaker. She will offer insights into 

the womb mysteries of the Earth.


 Communal sleeping BYO sleeping bag.

 Bring 2 lovingly made dishes for pot luck.

One catered vegan feast and breakfasts included.

 new- affordable price of $200 

we feel this will allow you to return more often,to continue as a committed seeker.

We are looking forward to sharing this essential wisdom of the Feminine traditions, that apply to all cultures and to all ages. In attending such woman’s circles, we move towards reclaiming our selves as the powerful creators we are and  taking our world leadership roles once more.






As you can see in Den’s expression we have another teacher with a mischievous streak! 

Den’s life seems guided by his passion to uncover the mysteries of the Divine Feminine principal in all. From an early experience with a friend who self conceived, he has devoted his study and art to its exploration.Den has written a book called “Parthenogenesis,Woman’s long lost ability to self conceive”.

It is in his art form were you can find his whimsical streak, by his use of found objects and garbage, which he transforms from the mundane to the profound. His subject is always referencing back to the mysteries of hidden feminine gifts of creation and of her Soulful nature.

Den is also a musician who plays guitar and flute and has a “Jug band” group that plays local  spots on the eastern seaboard of New York State.

Den believes that the world would be a better place with women leading.

Den is also a friend and colleague of Marguerite Rigoglioso and it was she who introduced him to Maureen Walton.

I look forward to my collaboration with Den in his first upcoming retreat here at Wyldwood. Be ready to engage in art making in the woods, ceremony in local caves, lots of discussion and information that will make an impact on your current accepted understandings of many things concerning woman’s power.

this retreat is in June 2,3,4, 2017 see details in schedule.

NOTE!  read Den’s blog so you will have a good understanding before attending;

Danielle Kreps presents

Plant Spirit Communication

Friday June 9th at 10am to Sunday June 11 at 4pm.

It seems fitting to introduce myself for those who may not be familiar with my Plant Spirit Healing Practice or Workshop offerings. This photo was taken at Wysdom Tree’s 2016 Plant Spirit Communication Workshop (held at Soulful by Design) and I was definitely feeling gratitude to be sharing the gifts of our Green Allies who have enriched my life in so many ways.

They have helped me to heal, balance, and reclaim the hidden wounded spaces in my Spirit and have brought me into deeper relationship with this beautiful Earth Mother we are blessed to call home in this life.



Maureen is pleased to host Danielle for a full weekend of study and experiential practice with the plants. Wyldwood is teeming with native species that have been left undisturbed for many years.A rare opportunity.
