Womans Martial Arts Retreat

-Honoring Our Stories-

June 28-30th, 2024

Kentland Retreat Center, Mechanicsburg PA

Womans Martial Arts Retreat - Spiritual Hearts - Jennifer Rabenstein

Jennifer Rabenstein has been facilitating and holding space for women through spiritual retreats for self-growth, healing, inspiring, creating, and building commUNITY.  She has studied/practiced many things from Reiki, Sound healing, yoga, taichi, healing through art, sound healing, priestess work, life purpose coaching...and is a 4th kyu at Dillsburg Karate. Deeply inspired by her own personal journey with karate, she is bringing in Jennifer Armermann, a 2nd degree black belt at Dillsburg Karate Academy, to contribute to this weekend experience where women who study/practice martial arts can come together to honor their stories. 


Every woman has a story. 

Every woman who steps into martial arts, or faces any challenge in life,

has yet another layer to her story...

Has she cried in pain?

Has she experienced trauma?

Has she felt weak?

Is she on a path seeking who she is?

Does she have a mission?

What battles is she fighting?

What makes her the amazing warrior she is?

We will look inside to view our stories. We will acknowledge each of our stories. And together we will honor each woman and the story that is behind/in front of them. 

Enjoy a weekend weaved together with supportive gatherings, self-reflection, self-care, and self-defense work for the body and mind. Enjoy experiencing mindful moments through meditation, yoga/tai chi, and martial arts movements. 

You do NOT need to be a martial artist to experience this retreat!

We all have challenges that come at us in life, and we all need to learn self-care, self-discipline, self-reflections, and self-defense. Not everyone is at the same place in their journeys, which also means that you may be a warrior goddess who is not studying a martial art at this time. 


Friday, doors will open at 5pm, where we can connect over a potluck and then wind into opening the group for the weekend. 

Saturday will be a full day of disconnecting with the outside world as we connect with ourselves and each other. All meals will be provided (and dipping into leftover potluck).

Sunday, enjoy break fast and then we will bring closure to the weekend and be packed up and out around noon.
