Pilgrim Firs is a 120-acre retreat and conference center in a lush Pacific Northwest forest on beautiful Lake Flora. The tranquil setting is home to many birds and wildlife and offers a peaceful respite with a labyrinth, walking trails around the lake and many places to sit and be. There is a lake with canoeing and kayaking, a floating dock for swimming, and two campfire areas. The center is located 3 miles from the City of Port Orchard and about an hour and a half drive and relaxing ferry ride from downtown Seattle.


Your registration provides you with 4 days and 3 nights in a shared cabin, a bed, bedding, towels, 3 delicious meals a day, snacks, art supplies and 4 days filled with soulful learning and growth, celebration and rest, and communing with amazing women and elders!

    • Early Registration is $350
    • After September 30th, registration increases to $385


Months in advance of the Woman Soul Gathering we commit to pay Pilgrim Firs for 45-50 people. We understand there are many reasons to cancel and it is normal to have second thoughts when you make a commitment by registering. Please know that we look forward to being with exactly who you are! And we also understand that emergencies do happen.

    • You may request a refund up to 7 days prior to the Woman Soul Gathering, less a $25 processing fee.
    • There are no refunds for cancellations within one week of the Woman Soul Gathering.
    • If you need to cancel suddenly for a serious illness or unexpected calamity, please call or email Chalice at (206) 745-2016 or


Expect the weather to be in the 50’s-60’s during the day and 40’s at night, with possible rain.  Bring layers of clothing. All cabins and meeting spaces are heated.


Three freshly prepared meals per day are provided in the large dining hall. Vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free options are available. Please indicate any food allergies and necessary food preferences when you register. 

If you wish to bring your own snacks to keep in your cabin, critter-proof containers are required. (Be aware that some people have severe nut allergies and thus snacks with nuts or nut-butters should not be brought.) We also encourage you to bring snacks to share that will be kept in the South Lodge where we all gather. There is a kitchen with a refrigerator, stove, and sink available for our use. We will have coffee, hot water for tea, and snacks available 24/7.

Please see volunteer opportunities for assisting in maintaining our snack table and kitchen when you register below.


Accommodations are cabins with two bedrooms and two shared baths with 3-4 women per bedroom (no bunk-beds). All bedding and towels are provided. When you register, you can identify a woman or women with whom you would like to share a cabin.


If you are flying, you will use Sea-Tac International Airport south of Seattle. It is served by all major carriers with many flights daily.  Plan to arrive at the airport no later than 9:00 am on Thursday and depart no sooner than 7:00 pm on Sunday.  We can provide ride-shares to and from the airport. If you need overnight accommodations because of your flight times, we have volunteers who can provide an overnight stay. When you register please indicate if you either need, or can provide a ride-share and/or overnight accommodation. We will coordinate and be in touch with details within 10 days of the retreat.


Within 2-4 Weeks of the Woman Soul Gathering, you will receive a preparation letter with a suggested packing list, including directions and ferry times.
