Blue Rock Station

The Bodacious Woman Weekend begins on Sept 18th (Friday evening) and is for women of all ages. The workshops and activities are designed to inspire within each of us a strengthened self-confidence, as well as the knowledge that each of us holds within our own hands the key to thriving.

Join Annie Warmke, Kristen Conroy, and a few of their friends for a weekend of perfecting the techniques of thriving in this crazy world.  Each activity is designed to inspire knowledge and to teach new solutions to old challenges.  Show up ready to network, make new friends, and with an eager spirit that says “you’re ready for almost anything”.

Whether it’s a need to connect with other like-minded women or discover some secrets to being healthier or perfecting your skills at simplifying your life, this weekend promises to offer a new direction.  The leaders hope you will take what you need and leave the rest.

What to bring:

Don’t forget your yoga mat for morning movement time or Sunday forest bathing with the goat kids.  Bed linens for double mattress if you’re staying in a cabin, pillow, toiletries, allergy medication, a hat, a walking stick (we have some if you don’t have one) and an idea for a slogan or inspiring word that could be painted onto a banner. 

You’re invited to bring personal items to share, or even something you’d like to leave behind by placing it in the fire, or in safe keeping for a return visit.  Bring your own water bottle for refilling.  Bring a drum or flute or guitar for sharing around the evening bond fire.

You will need to register by April 30th to make sure you have accommodations. Other options for accommodations  (if you don’t want to sleep at BRS) can be found online and include Comfort Inn, Fairfield Inn, etc.  Fees listed include accommodations, workshops, evening ceremonies, and meals. Meals are hearty vegetarian and lactose or gluten issues are easily accommodated by our chef, Pam Nalbach, with plenty of advance notice.

Anything you bring, if not consumed will need to be taken home with you. We are a zero waste facility and work hard at composing, recycling, re-purposing, and re-using. If you’d like to know more about this part of farm life please don’t hesitate to ask.


About Accommodations:

This is a private farm. On special occasions the cabins and other buildings are available so that others can enjoy the beauty and serenity of living a simpler life. The accommodations are rustic. That means that although there is electricity available for everything but the May Apple Forest Cabin down the hill, the cabins are just for sleeping. The air conditioning is the evening breeze. The Privy with the Million Dollar View and the Half-assed Privy are commercial composting toilets.

The shower is located in a small structure with solar-heated water. If it is chilly, you’ll need to be the pioneer sort of person to use it. There will be plenty of hot water for washing off, dishes and anything else that’s required. Wifi can be spotty and the speed is very limited so plan ahead by giving the Blue Rock Station phone number (740) 674-4300 for emergencies.

No pets please (this is a working farm).  Also, please read the workshop rules and FAQ’s for events at Blue Rock Station.
