Complete Our Retreat With A Trip To The Wilderness

When on the retreat, we love to head out into the wilderness for some exploration and rough terrain hiking. However, we’re always prepared and careful to have the right equipment. It’s especially bad when the wrong type of footwear is chosen for the trail, fatigue sets in and the chance of having an accident increases. The great outdoors is best explored with the right type of protective footwear. Hiking boots or shoes specifically designed for women are your best bet. You can find a selection on our friend site at wahoo-hiker

Hiking shoes that help to keep the pain away after a long hike remain popular. These shoes provide the right level of support. In addition, when they are built to weigh less, the ground can be covered in a smaller amount of time. However, shoes for hiking are only recommended when you are carrying a light load on a short trail that is well known. For long trips and for all other terrain types, women’s hiking boots are always recommended instead.

What You Need to Know About Your Hiking Boots

Hiking boots provide ankle support and better protection for your feet. This is why they are considered to be appropriate wear for longer hikes and wilderness trips. Of course, these boots are built with materials that make them stiffer initially, which means that it will take time to break them in. On the other hand, your feet will be completely protected.

When the hike will last for a prolonged period of time, hiking boots are an excellent option. Plus, when you choose the right boots, you will be well protected from snakes, insects, and even tarantulas. There are plenty of critters in the great outdoors to take into consideration, which makes it wise to be careful in your selection of gear.

When a hiker is just beginning, hiking boots prevent knees from getting tweaked and help to protect the ankles. The more you hike, the more accustomed your muscles will become to the rough terrain and the fatigue that it brings. Until then, it is best to use footwear that provides support, such as hiking boots for women.

A Few Tips When Shopping For Women’s Hiking Boots

Give some thought to your purchase before you head out to shop for your hiking boots. It is best to head to a store to buy them in person, although this does not always happen. Use these shopping tips as you browse the available selection:

Look for boots that are weather resistant and that are high quality in their construction. Be prepared to spend quite a bit to get the right boots, because you do get what you pay for.

The hours spent on your feet during long hikes can cause a great deal of pain and lead to foot and other body problems, so be sure that your hiking boots include arch support.

Natural leather works well on many levels. It stretches over time to better fit your feet, it can be waterproofed, and the material is durable.

Boots that are too small for your feet should never be purchased. To make sure that the fit is right, be sure that between the heel of the shoe and your heel, there is an index finger’s amount of space.

If you are ready to head out and explore the great outdoors, find a pair of boots that is right for you to fully enjoy the experience.

“Whatever you did, Sara, WOW! I can’t wait for the other retreats!”

“I don’t particularly enjoy interacting with people over the Internet or even talking on the phone and although I’ve tried a number of different digital yoga products I haven’t found them to be fulfilling or inspiring. So I was quite amazed by the intensity of my experiences throughout this retreat. The yoga practice was particularly powerful for me: there were tears, there were lots of old emotions brought up for composting. Whatever you did, Sara, wow! I can’t wait for the other retreats. I will be doing everything possible to ensure I’m there!”- Kate Walker, Australia, Women’s Mentor

Our Red Tent is the latest evolution of an ancient, essential women’s practice space. Sometimes it’s a nest, other times a crucible, always a sanctuary.

Throughout the centuries, our female ancestors gathered in tents and circles, moon lodges and church basements, kitchens and under the stars.  They came together as sisters to replenish, reconnect, and re-inspire.

They recognized a truth we’ve all but forgotten.  As women, we’re hardwired for relationship.  Togetherness ignites our greatness.  And without community, our deepest Selves cannot blossom.SHE discovers Herself in solitude, but awakens and expresses Herself in community.

The Red Tent is our opportunity to gather together once more.  Across cultures and timezones. Beyond limiting dogma or narrow definitions of femininity.  A shared exploration of depth and devotion.  A sacred haven and sustaining resource to practice, grieve, evolve, dare, alchemize, birth, and celebrate.

Welcome to your modern-day Red Tent. SHE is your greatest teacher.  I will guide you to Her.

My life’s work is helping women connect with their own SHE (or Soul) and live in full alignment with Her.  My approach is timeless, rooted in ancient spiritual traditions, yet mischievously unconventional. And, best of all, it’s incredibly practical and pragmatic — adapted to all aspects of the modern woman’s day-to-day reality.

My SHE works through me, helping you to contact your inner wisdom and learn to live from it in a grounded, wise, embodied, skillful, and playful way. My teachings play with polarities to find the harmony underneath. You’ll find them:

Spacious and wild. Reverent and electric. Tender and fierce. Trembling and brazen. Generous and bold. Edgy and safe. Lightning quick and slow & steady. Surrendered and audacious. Masculine and feminine. Spiritual and pragmatic. With ease and grit, bravery and grace. Living in love. Eyes wide open.  Heart and belly awake and connected. Down to Earth. In the flow. On fire.

This is what it takes for a woman to live her own life, on her own terms.

Resourced from within. Wedded to each moment with supreme faith in all that is Good, True, and Beautiful.

“The Red Tent retreat last month was exceptional…”

“I found myself crying listening to your words at the beginning. I now know that I need to put my self nurturing as a priority before being selfless in my relationships to…well, every area of my life!”- Sue Bach; Brisbane, Australia
