"Come with me into the Darkness"- a Soul Sisters' Retreat on the Healing Island of Martha's Vineyard
November 12 - 14
Connect to your deepest self through yoga, poetry, laughter, play and relaxation...
A Retreat for Women: Come together in circle with MJ Bindu Delekta, Anne Colangeli & Ingrid Goff-Maidoff
This poem by Ingid Goff-Maidoff will inspire our inquiry.
Come with me into the darkness
where I'm not pressed to be beautiful.
Where the watched go unwitnessed, unguarded,
and deep speaks to deep in a wordless tongue.
Let me take off this outrageous costume
I bought for approval and fantasy
and go with you into the darkness
wearing only my love.
Our "no agenda" Schedule
The retreat begins on Friday evening at 7 p.m. with a circle of listening and relaxation to prepare you for restful sleep. Saturday, we begin at 9 a.m. and explore together a variety of approaches to opening, energizing, and balancing our bodies, minds, and spirits. The session ends at 12 p.m., giving you ample time for lunch and afternoon activities before we resume at 4 p.m. and continue until 6 p.m.
You may choose to lunch at the studio and share a meal prepared by MJ Anne & Ingrid. Or you may want to have some time alone and explore the island's culinary fare.
In the afternoon, you have the option of attending a guided walking meditation experience at one of the island's many hiking trails.
The evening is yours to explore more of the island or rest. Sunday morning, we meet at 9 a.m. for more retreat and relaxation. The retreat ends at noon.

Maybe you have longed to join a group of women exploring the frontiers of their souls but have felt shy to come alone. Perhaps a retreat is just out of reach financially at this time. Now is the time! Grab a friend or soul sister and share the cost and experience with her. When the retreat is over, you will have the shared memories and perhaps some new skills and insights discovered together.
