It has been three years since our last Fool’s Journey Restorative. Due to a fire that destroyed the beautiful lodge at Four Springs in 2011, the wonderful location of our retreat, we had to put the event on hold. We are happy to let you know Four Springs has opened again and we have begun planning for the Year of the Empress.

We were all so looking forward to seeing you and doing magic.  The Empress awaits us and we'll meet her this Autumn!

Take a leap and spend four days and three nights traveling the road of the Sacred Fool with magic, ritual, art, restorative reflection, and sacred spa lounging. This September, A Fool’s Journey steps into the year of The Empress, the Tarot card of abundance, creativity, and pregnant promise.

A Fool’s Journey is a place to step between the worlds and experience the magic and wisdom of the Tarot. The Fool, the first card of the Tarot, reminds us that any journey of spirit starts by following our intuition, opening our heart and stepping into the unknown. This year, surrounded by the natural beauty and comfortable accommodations of the Four Springs Retreat Center, we Foolishly embrace The Empress, Mother of All Things and all possibilities.

With workshops, rituals and restorative lounging, come ready to play the Fool and open to the Empress’s wealth of possibility. Come ready to experience the rich divinity of the Empress’s gifts of body, mind, and spirit. Those on the beginning of an earth-based spiritual path will gain experience in working with the elements of magic, the tarot, and the use of ritual. Those who have a solid magical/spiritual practice will find delight and depth in a variety of workshops geared towards taking us out of the boxes of "spiritual tradition" and returning us to the soul of our practice.

A Fool's Journey is put on by a group of teachers, priestesses, and facilitators dedicated to an earth-based spiritual path. We include priestesses who are initiates of Reclaiming, Feri, and British Traditional Wicca traditions. With more than two to three decades behind us in following earth based spiritual paths, we come together in common intent of exploring how solid spiritual and magical practices can be built in the context of The Fool’s Journey.
