Star Women 2024

September 11 or 13 - September 15

Star Women is a relaxing retreat with a body/mind/spirit focus. This year we are focusing on how we look at and “see” the world around us. The beauty of the island and warmth of community can change our perspectives. We encourage spontaneity and creativity. We, and the island, offer opportunities for laughter and conversation while respecting solitude and silence. We hope everyone gains some new insight through singing, painting, poetry, photography, crafts, rowing to Smuttynose, polar bear dips or just rocking on the porch. Our flexible schedule creates an environment that encourages both togetherness and personal time. Strong bonds are developed through conference events and traditions like the opening and closing circles, chapel, social hour and the poetry weave. There is plenty of time to unwind and enjoy the island and its rejuvenating energy. Register early, as the conference size is limited to ensure a sense of community and intimacy. Star Women is an adult-only conference. Attendees must be 21+.
