Cultivating Community Retreats
Cultivating Community is rooted in inclusion and belonging. It's a safe space for the outcasts, the marginalized, and those who have been "othered" by society. Curated and led by Amber Cantorna-Wylde, these weekend gatherings are designed to be a safe haven for those who have been shunned from their faith communities, work places, and families simply for being who they are. If you're looking for a place to bring your whole self and find acceptance, celebration, and love, we invite you to join one of our tailored retreats where you can spend 4 days/3 nights with like-minded people building a community of belonging that's designed to last.
About Cultivating Community
Cultivating Community retreats were born out of a desire to reduce isolation for those working in social justice silos. Fighting for equality (especially for those who identify with one or more marginalized groups), is relentless and exhausting work. It's full of challenges, and often self-care gets pushed to the side for the sake of the work. As a result, leaders are worn down and on a fast-track to burnout. Cultivating Community retreats are the antidote to mental, physical, emotional, and creative fatigue. These weekends are specifically tailored to foster both interpersonal and community connection and target specific groups of like-minded people to intentionally engage in healing ourselves and supporting one another, so that we can continue to heal the world.
Come together with 15 other people in a luxury hotel-style home and share in meaningful activities that will bring you closer to others, and bring you home to yourself. It's an opportunity to give yourself the gift of connection, healing, inspiration, growth, and life. Join us for one of our upcoming gatherings and find respite for your soul, rejuvenation in your work, and collaboration with like-minded people in a safe and inclusive environment where everyone belongs.
