redefining "weekend with the girls"
When is the last time you took a "trip with the girls"?
Did you feel refreshed and renewed after?
Was your bond stronger?
Did you make friends with other like minded strangers?
Did you feel empowered and ready to go back to "real life"
We are redefining "weekend with the girls" into a conscious gathering of women, not escaping their reality,
but weaving a new one!
If the thought of spending time with a group of women gives you the 'ick'
If you automatically think it'll be too 'catty'
If there is something inside that is resisting and rejecting
.... You may have a "sister wound" and it is spaces like this that help to heal that wound!
Some of the magic you will experience:
Daily meditation & Pranayama
Yoga in the beautiful outdoor shala
Freshly prepared meals
Workshop on Releasing Trapped Emotions
Guided Nature Hike
Sacred Sister Circle
126 acres of forest and natural springs!

Seven Springs is a retreat center featuring seven natural springs on 126 acres of private land in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. The land is some of the most ecologically diverse in the country. The high elevations of the Smoky Mountains are a temperate rain forest with over 17,000 species of plants and animals. The incredible biodiversity of the region adds to the abundant richness of Seven Springs.
I am so excited to be spending time in this enchanted forest with YOU!

Respect for Wildlife and Plants: As we are sharing this home with the wildlife, we ask that you tread softly on the earth. There are bears in our area along with other animals so please give them their space! Poison/Sister Ivy: Leaves of three, let it be! We suggest that when you shower, scrub all exposed areas well. You have up to two hours to remove the oils before they cause the itchy reaction on your skin. If you’re particularly allergic, consider using a Jewel Weed salve. We have some for emergencies in our first aid kit. Jewel Weed oil is a natural counter to sister ivy. In nature they grow next to each other representing a beautiful symbiotic relationship. Yurts: Please take off your shoes when entering the yurts. We do have critters (mostly raccoons and field mice) so it’s essential to put any food in the fridge and/or cabinets. There are extra blankets in each yurt if you need. Please turn off your lights when you leave your yurt. Dishes: At meal time, please clean your own bowl and eating items at our washing station. There are five steps in this system: First scrape off the food particles in the compost bin, Second scrub with natural soap, Third dip in water to rinse, Fourth soak for a few seconds in vinegar to sterilize. Finally, place your items on the drying rack. Karma: We like to practice small offerings of karma (selfless service) during your experience at Seven Springs. Please treat the space as if it were your own. This is a family-style retreat center, and we hope that each person that comes leaves their positive energy and a clean space!
Frequently Asked Questions about Seven Springs Retreat Center Is there electricity in the yurts? yes! Each yurt has lighting as well as plugs to charge your devices. If you are in a glamping tent or camping tent, we have plugs for you to use in the dining area. Is there AC in the yurts? There are fans in the yurts and no AC. Between the fans, windows, and center skylight there is nice airflow in the yurts. In the heat of the day in the summertime, we find it is best spent outside beneath the trees. We do ask you to turn off your fans during the day while out of the yurt for energy conservation. Are there vegan/gluton free options for the meals? Yes! All our meals are vegetarian/vegan with gluton free options. We can also cater to other dietary needs. Read more about our meal options here. What is the weather like? This is a hard one these days! Often, April and October months are warm in the daytime with bright blue beautiful skies and cooler evenings and at night. We make sure there are plenty of blankets in each yurt. May and September are temperate. June-Aug can be hot and humid. This all seems to change each year, so we recommend bringing layers for all weather and of course rain gear. What are the bathrooms like? Our bathrooms are centrally located, with two stalls with flushing toilets and two sinks with large mirrors. We also have two large hot water showers with private changing space in each.
