ONLINE Saging Cohort

Saging is a cohort-based course focused on the Sacred Feminine. This course is for those who have an inner, vibrant spirituality but may find there are few places within the church that support this kind of growth.  Kavanna House will offer the Saging cohort in an ONLINE format, where participants meet for five (5) two-day retreats over a nine month period via ZOOM. You will not be on the computer the entire time; there will be ample times for personal reflection done off of ZOOM.

The ONLINE cohort will meet on the following dates from 9 am - 5 pm:

  • September 26-27, 2020
  • December 5-6, 2020
  • January 23-24, 2021
  • March 20-21, 2021
  • May 22-23, 2021

One day of each retreat will be a “Sophia” day - focused on exploring the wisdom aspect of God, image of God and the feminine traits of God.  The second day is called the “Thelma” day, which is focused on discovering our true, wild essence, coming into our own as a woman and coming to understand those places where the culture and the church have formed us in ways that are not congruent with who we truly are. 

The idea is not to change your mind on all you have come to know about God and yourself, but rather to offer you some broader possibilities to consider.  It will be a place to explore some of these ideas in safe community. 

 It can be an unsettling, frustrating, exhilarating and freeing journey…and it is definitely not for everyone.

There is limited space as we feel this work is best done in small groups so there is the opportunity to build intimate community. Because the cohort format requires a greater commitment of time and the subject matter may be new to some, an interview is required for all prospective participants. 

This cohort is open to a maximum of six people. Participant cost is $2,000 per person. This cost covers all materials, including those that will be shipped to participants prior to cohort retreat weekends. A $200 non-refundable deposit is required at the time of registration. The balance of the cost can be paid in installment payments. 

We are committed to individuals who are called to Kavanna’s programs being able to participate so please reach out to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if financial assistance may be needed.


ONLINE Platform: Since this cohort will be done exclusively online via Zoom, here are some important things to consider and plan for:

  • choosing and preparing a space to spend the day - ideally it will be quiet and comfortable.
  • communicating with others in your household - clearly and graciously, let any other household members know what space you will be using during the retreat and how very grateful you will be to them for respecting your retreat time by not interrupting you.
  • gathering your materials - you will want your journal and the documents that will be emailed/mailed to you prior to retreat days.
  • preparing for our Zoom calls – you will want to set up your laptop, tablet, or phone in a place where it can remain plugged in for the duration of the call so that you don't get disconnected due to a dead battery. If you have never been on a Zoom call before, you will receive a link to download the free necessary software for a laptop or the mobile app for phone or tablet before retreat days.
