menoPAUSE Retreat 
-Weaving In The Sacred


August 31 - Sept 2nd (2 Night Retreat)

Earth Tantra Farm Stay in Delta, Colorado

Options from: $339-$489

Feel the call to weave ritual & respect into your peri/post menopause journey?
Is your body asking to immerse, slow down and nurture?
menoPAUSE retreat will guide you in supporting physical & spiritual well being, ritual, wellness (+herbs) and peer support that could soften your shadow or fears AND to honor this important phase of life.
Are you peri to post menopausal?  Join Tara, Grounding Expert, Tantra Guide who is post-menopause, and a small intimate group in sacred circle.  It's called menoPAUSE not meno"fastpace" for a reason!  Let's #stopconnectlistentrust the truth within as we awaken the body and nurture the soul together while weaving in the sacred.  Earth Tantra believes we learn together as a collective energy, so we are excited to weave in the sacred from each heart.

For Who?  Any woman in the peri-menopause to post-menopause stage of life.  There is no age limit because some women experience menopause due to a variety of reasons.  This 2 night retreat is best for people who like smaller intimate circles verses larger groups AND are desiring to awaken, move, nurture and connect with their body and feminine energy.  Due to the small size of this retreat, it's also a good match for empaths, ADHD/ neurodivergent, sensitive to large group energy, etc.

Highlights & Together We Will...

  • Walk the wheel of time and season to identify our signal for guidance & inspiration

  • Learn womb opening practices to connect and juice our inner nurture

  • Open, soften and connect with the body through tantric womb meditation 

  • Experience the ancient practices of womb adornment &  yoni steaming 

  • Take time to sit with and share the shadows (and fears) of menopause 

  • Eat nurturing menopausal supportive foods

  • Drink mama cacao in ceremony & learn how she supports heart + hormones

  • Learn about other wellness practices (like herbs) to support our journey

  • Move in yoga and dance to open the body and flow of shakti energy

  • Co-create safety, trust and a space to share from the heart

  • Practice inner healing as we send positive energy to key organs 

Where?  We will gather on a small private 8 acre farm with a mix of old cottonwood trees & open fields with views of the Grand Mesa.  Delta is located between Ouray & Grand Junction, Colorado.  It is a high desert farming community and gathering for Ute Native Council.  Please note - this retreat is inclusive healing retreat.  We ask that you stay with the group during the retreat and arrange for site seeing before or after the retreat begins.  The exact address will be shared in an email approx 2 weeks before the retreat.  This is a private home and farm space called Raven Wild Farm.

She has been featured in New York Times, Parade, Insider, Bustle, Mashable, and Swell and has presented Tantra and healing with nature practices at various conferences like Loving More, Women's Wilderness, Women of Wisdom and others. 
When should I arrive?  When are we finished?
Arrive between 2 and 3pm only.  Please not before or after.  Allow at least one extra HOUR driving time for weekend traffic in the mountains, especially  if you are traveling from the Denver area.  This is a holiday weekend.  We will finish around 10:00am and will have time to pack and leave upon wake up and after 10:00am.
What is the space like?
Earth Tantra Center is located on 8 private acres on Tara's farm called Raven Wild Farm & soon to be a lavender and bee therapy center.  We have chickens, bees (they keep to themselves), small various gardens, nativescape, 2 small border heeler dogs, deer, over 2 dozen different birds, incredible views of the Grand Mesa, wisdom filled cottonwood trees, and a variety of other trees, a tiny pond, open field, shaded hammocks and lots of nooks for private silent meditation.  The area has shaded and exposed eating/ lounging options as well as a beautiful 20 foot ceremonial tipi.  We are NOT a pet free home, however we are a shoeless, smokeless and low chemical home. NO perfumes inside house/ including scented lotions, etc - more natural soaps/ shampoos are provided. Thank you for respecting a home resident's chemical allergies.  
Camping vs Indoor Room?
If you truly want to embody mother earth, we suggest camping.  If you are camping, we provide rustic outdoor options.  A place for a tent, car camping or small campers.  Hook ups/ electric are not available, however you'll be able to charge a phone outdoors.   An outdoor enclosed shower and rustic bathroom are provided (NEW for 2024!).  Keep in mind, campers DO NOT have access to indoor bathrooms.  Rustic outdoor showers and drinking water are provided.   Indoor private bedroom guests will be able to use indoor bathroom/ shower.
How many people will attend?
Approximately 6 students & Tara.  Sometimes an assistant will help.  We keep our retreats intimate and small to create a trusting space for all people.  Large groups can inhibit the ability to connect with deep healing and can be overwhelming for some.  Spectrum folks, empaths, ADHDers and others appreciate the small group and family feel with Earth Tantra.
Is this retreat clothed? 
Yes, this retreat is clothed, however you may earth and meditate during breaks in private areas without clothing.  Yoni steaming is covered with a floor length skirt or long blanket.
What is yoni steaming?  
Yoni steaming is the ritual of steaming the vagina with hot water and herbs.  This retreat will offer your choice of 2 of Tara's special homemade organic blends.  We will stand, then sit (covered with a floor length skirt or blanket) over a steaming pot.  This can be any medium to large size cooking pot.  We will steam in sacred circle after physically and energetically opening the yoni & womb space.
What if I'm a little uncomfortable? 
 Each practice and session is always presented with options to adapt to each person's comfort level. 
Comfort & trust is a priority and we grow upon each practice step by step for expansion.
Can I commute or leave the retreat space to explore in town?
 The intention is to stay at the retreat center.  We ask that everyone stay on the property during the retreat times to remain fully inclusive and keep the energy created in sisterhood sacred.  

Is this an alcohol friendly event?
No, it's not.  We ask all alcohol and recreational drugs stay at home.  We move enough energy to release our happy brain chemicals naturally with Earth Tantra.  
How is the weather?
Be prepared for 50s to 90's degrees this time of year, as we will be outside.  Prepare for rain. 
The site has a tipi and shaded areas.
Keep in Mind.....
  A list of what to bring will be mailed approx 1 month and 1 week before the retreat.  We do not integrate time for touristing during the retreat.  The center is a rustic and primitive outdoor retreat center, be prepared for primitive camping conditions if you are camping (porta potty, hand washing station & drinking water only).  Indoor access is for indoor bedroom folks only - sorry.  Due to our sensitive septic and space, campers will remain outside in nature.
What about transportation and airport transfers?  

Montrose airport is 30 min away.  Grand Junction airport is 1+ hrs away.  Denver airport is 6 hrs away.  UBER and shuttle vans don't run often as Delta is a very small town.  However, it's possible to arrange for a airport transfer with Sunshine Rides.  Car rentals are available at all airports. Tara will NOT be able to pick up students, however there are usually a few students driving through Montrose and Grand Junction to come to the retreat, but it's not guaranteed.​
