Annual Weekend



Together We Rise

Rise Gatherings Annual Weekend is a three day experience designed to unite and empower women.

Do you desire

A place to connect, learn and celebrate life with other women?

A fertile ground to play, sweat, dance and create?

An experience to further you on your journey to your whole self?

This is Rise Gatherings.

Unite to Ignite

We gather as women to ignite the innate potential within each of us.  We celebrate womanhood and the collective womenhood by honoring the power provoked when we unite with our shared and individual passions and purposes. Rise Gatherings provides the time, space and activities to deeply connect with yourself and others. This is why we Rise.

Rise is for All Women

Rise Gatherings are for any self-identifying woman who desires a sense of internal awakening. For women who recognize the need for support and inspiration to sustain and thrive in our ability to love and take care of ourselves and have an impact in our communities, families, and world. At Rise Gatherings we explore the common threads that weave through us all. You belong here. 

Where we Rise?

Rise Gathering Weekend 2018 takes place at the beautiful lake front property of Trail’s End Camp, located in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. Trail’s End is recognized as a premier summer camp and event space where the peace and beauty of a mountain getaway meet the comfort and service of a resort. The impeccably kept facilities offer endless spots for play and rest. This is where we Rise.

Rise is a Womenhood

  1. the state of being in a collective female community
  2. the natural process of awakening to being a woman in her fullest embodiment of herself
  3. the connection and inspiration resulting from being in a supportive community of women who raise each other up
