About the event

Nature & Nurture: A Women's Retreat

Connect with Mother Nature to experience Nurture; let Mother Earth do the healing.

Our Why:

Nature & Nurture: A Women’s Retreat is an experience for the senses. Surrounded by beautiful and luscious Mother Nature in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains of Maryville, Tennessee at Seven Springs Retreat Center. We gather, as women & as sisters, to heal and revive through connection to Nature and the Nurturing of ourselves. Through cacao ceremonies, group meals, nature walks, private individual time, ecstatic dances, story-telling & sharing, naked forest bathing, singing, laughing, & living together we will form sisterly bonds that will last lifetimes. Healing as individuals, through community.

FAQ:

Getting There:

  • Driving:
  • Only Use Google Maps or Waze (very important!)
  • Route to 125 Sweet Hollow Way Maryville, TN 37803
  • We recommend coming in via Montvale Road, State Route 336. From Maryville, travel 6.5 miles south on Montvale Road, turn left on Old Piney Road (there is a ProSign shop on your right). Travel 1.1 mile and take your second left onto Galyon Rd. Travel 4/10 of a mile and you will see a large blue mailbox with 120 Sweet Hollow Way sign on top (this is next to 1344 Galyon Rd address and mailbox). Turn left immediately after the blue mailbox onto our gravel driveway and follow the signs to the YURTS. You may drive to your yurt or camping space to unload, and you will then return to park your vehicle in our parking area.
  • If you get lost, please call (865) 221-3841 OR (865) 268-3913. Verizon Wireless has the best, and pretty much only service in this area.
  • Flying:
  • The nearest airport is the Knoxville International Airport, TYS. The airport is actually located in Alcoa and only about 25 minutes from Seven Springs. You may also look into flying into the Atlanta International Airport and taking the bus or renting a car to drive to Seven Springs. The Atlanta airport is about a four hour drive. Nashville offers additional airlines and the airport is about a three hour drive (and in central time zone).
