Take a look at the About Events page or check out our latest video highlighting what you can expect at the retreat.

How much does it cost?

Currently (Fall 2019), the Institute and Gathering each cost $290: the UUWomenspirit program fee of $100 and $190 for The Mountain food (6 meals) and lodging (2 nights). So, if you attend both the Institute and the Gathering, the total fee is $580. While we don’t expect the rates to increase, you should consult the event brochure, which is published about two months before the event, for the actual costs of an event, including the early bird rate (usually a $20 discount per program). Members receive a $20 discount per program; UUWomenspirit membership is $45 per year.

Do you want to sell items at Brigid’s Bazaar?

Anyone attending the event may request space to sell woman-made creations or items from her woman-owned business. Artists keep 90% of the sales and give 10% to UUWomenspirit. You will be responsible for selling your items during the scheduled times. Check back here a couple of months before the event for the link to the agreement form.

Would you like to offer massage therapy or other bodywork services?

If you are a licensed massage therapist, you may offer massage.  Yo will need to provide your own table.  A cabin has been set aside for you.  It can accommodate two massage therapists.  You can reserve a space in the sales area where women can sign up.  Therapists keep 90% and give 10% to UUWomenspirit.  Please fill out and submit the Sales or Massage Agreement by September 15th.

Do you need financial assistance to attend?

A limited number of partial scholarships may be available for UUWomenspirit members who need some financial assistance to attend. Please fill out and submit the Scholarship Application.

Where will the event be held?

UUWomenspirit Institute and Gathering are held at The Mountain, just outside of Highlands, NC. Please use these links to get more information.
