Join HoneyRoot for their first mixed gender community celebration of embodiment. This event is open to women who have attended a HoneyRoot Retreat and those men and women who are connected to them through friendship, "soul family," or community. Limited space available, as we want to keep the potency of the weekend nice and strong. CommonRoot is a place to explore, expand, contain, get curious, ritualize, ground, and, ultimately, more deeply inhabit ourselves, together. It is a both a (re)treat and embodied relationship lab for the human soul.
Rest into yourself. Find shared ground in relationship. Expand your capacity for intimacy. Communicate with authenticity. Express that which has been repressed. Dance. Play. Pray.
"Be the change you wish to see in the world."

Women share their experience of HoneyRoot:
"I now see that it is my body that brings my spiritual life and my practical life together. I am forever changed. I’m feel how ready I am to step out and share. What a beautiful, well-held ride."
~ JS, 2014 program
"HoneyRoot's School really tapped into the primal aspect of me, the place that remembers it is a birthright to be at home in the wilderness. I'm willing to feel and process fear to live this birthright."
~ J. Laurin, 2014 program
"The more we are connected to our own roots, the stronger our collaborations can be. Reclaiming our individuality and independence was a vital step to get us to where we are, but this is not the end goal of our work.
We must, once again, find each other - be in body together, play and pray together, regularly.
For this move, our relationships are key."
