Need a break? Join Feminist Oasis for our nourishing 2019 winter retreat!

All-inclusive — All accommodations (as selected when you register) and all meals (from Friday dinner through Sunday lunch) are included. We’re partnering with Laney & Lu, who is bringing us meals that are as locally-sourced and seasonal as possible, including telling us a little about each healthy meal before we eat. We’ll also have snacks on hand to accommodate most dietary restrictions (please let us know of any special requests). Just show up and we’ll take care of the rest! Disconnect from the world wide web and reconnect with our feminist pals, in an oasis of feminist community. All genders are welcome. We have created this retreat with the goal of cultivating feminist community, for folks at all points in their feminist journey. We’re working on filing it up with as much physical, mental and spiritual nourishment as possible!

Bunk house (above garage, just across the driveway from the main cabin) has 5 bunk beds (sleeping 10) with an additional bathroom.

About Feminist Oasis Feminist Oasis organizes to cultivate feminist community and explore feminist values in action. (More about our mission and values here.) If you are interested in building personal and institutional resilience, connecting with your community around shared feminist values and taking meaningful action to put those values into practice, please join us for an upcoming event (all are welcome to all of our events). Please review our Discussion Guidelines for IRL & URL Conversations. All genders welcome! Learn more at https://feministoasis.com/ About LANEY & LU LANEY & LU is an inspired eatery located in historic downtown Exeter, NH. Our menu includes small-batch locally-roasted organic fair trade coffee, herbalist-designed organic herbal teas, crafted functional beverages, sublime smoothies and smoothie bowls, hearty rice & quinoa bowls, bright & happy salads, savory soup and broth, wraps & sandwiches, and finally! good-snacks-on-the-go. At LANEY & LU, we believe food can serve a far greater purpose than to simply fill our stomachs. The “right” food nourishes our souls, builds community, and connects us with the earth. We work with over a dozen farmers and merchants throughout New England to source locally whenever possible and positively impact local ecosystems. We utilize compostable to-go packaging with a commitment to being “zero waste” to the customer. We believe LANEY & LU can make a meaningful and sustainable difference. The eatery’s design is bright, clean and inviting with reclaimed wood shelves and a repurposed community bench blended with a large hand-drawn chalkboard, minimalist industrial chairs, and daily inspirational messages handwritten on a roll of brown kraft paper. It’s a perfect fusion of old and new, comfort and chic. From the seed of creation, we have been mindful and true to our purpose and motto, and deliberate in sharing that lifestyle to create the “Live Vibrantly Movement.” Learn more at http://www.laneyandlu.com/ PHOTOS OF LOCATION:
