As of 3/19/22

At this time, mask mandates are being lifted in Oregon, including for indoor gatherings. Your organizing committee’s goal is to keep everyone safe as we gather in retreat.

Please send in proof of vaccination status with your registration. If you have not or cannot get vaccinated, bring proof of a negative COVID test done within 72 hours of arriving (not from a home test kit, but from a certified testing facility).

We will be following CDC guidelines, but as we all know, the guidelines are subject to change. To facilitate check-in, gathering this information beforehand will smooth things along. Thank you for your understanding and help.

Women of the United Church of Christ and their friends gather again to celebrate and renew old friendships, make new ones, and connect with their spirits and hearts.

For this retreat we are traveling to the Oregon Coast, hence our theme, "Waves of Peace". After the past couple of years, it seems we could all do with an infusion of peace for our souls and spirits. We are excited to be gathering at Salishan Lodge in Gleneden Beach. These words from their website seem to embrace exactly why this is the perfect place for this experience:

“Journey back to yourself. Do you feel it?

The thundering rush of Devil's Churn beneath your feet.

The wisdom of the mountains in your soul.

The heart of the excited sea beating against its rocky ribs.

The power of this mythical place. Everything aligning again.

This is Salishan: Oregon’s Coastal Lodge.”

Remember, there are two parts to complete to

Ten Thousand Villages is more than a store. We're a global maker‑to‑market movement that breaks the cycle of generational poverty and ignites social change. We're a way for you to shop with intention for ethically-sourced wares — and to share in the joy of empowering makers in ten thousand villages.

As a pioneer of fair trade, we do business differently, putting people and planet first. That means you can trust that every handmade purchase and donation you make directly impact the life and community of its maker in a developing country.
