What is a Bliss weekend all about?
Now more than ever women are experts at juggling multi-faceted lives. The demands of work, family and home are often prioritized first leaving no time for self-care. This is where Bliss comes in…
Bliss B4 Laundry Wellness Weekends present women with the opportunity to press pause and take a break from the busyness of life. The focus of the weekend is to explore mind, body and soul through workshops, discussions, communal cooking, music, social activities and time spent in nature.
There are no rules at a Bliss weekend! You can sleep in! You can relax by the lake. You can attend workshops and engage in discussion circles. Or go for a hike and make new friends in the kitchen. You can drum around the camp fire and let loose your inner goddess! Whatever mood strikes you, just go with it! This weekend is about YOU and only you!
What are women saying about Bliss Weekends?
“Just back from spending the most AMAZING wellness weekend with a camp full of incredible women! We all arrived as strangers, and over the course of 48 hours shared the most incredible experiences, life lessons and methods to live to our fullest extent, and made some crazy soul felt connections- I can’t even put this into words – still trying to digest and absorb everything that happened. This is a MUST ATTEND, if they put this on next year!!”
“My mom and I are still glowing after such an amazing weekend- THANK YOU AGAIN! We are already counting the days until next year and have recruited a few close friends to come with us! We LOVED the care package/blissful loot-bags that you gave us- so thoughtful!”
“When I walked into bliss I was a broken down person, the world had beat me and left me to die, (not literally) but that’s what it had felt like. I left bliss feeling so light and unburdened and full of happiness. I haven’t felt this way since I was a teenager. So, thank you again, I cannot say it enough.”

Horseback Riding – What could be more Blissful?
Circle Square Ranch is actually a Ranch! They have beautiful, majestic horses and they love to teach people how to ride them and care for them. At this weekend you can enjoy a one-hour horseback riding lesson for an additional $20 or take a Horse Science Lesson for an additional $20 – what a deal and what an experience!!
- Horseback Riding Lesson
Presented by Circle Square Ranch Staff
This one-hour lesson will cover the basics of horseback riding. You will be taught to safely lead your horse and to start, stop, and steer horses while riding at a walk. Your confidence will grow as you learn new skills in an arena and if the instructor is confident of the group’s readiness, you will go on a short trail ride.
- Horse Science Lesson
Presented by Circle Square Ranch Staff
This one-hour lesson will focus on spending time with horses and how to care for and groom them. Participants will also learn parts of the horse, parts of the saddle and bridle and how to pick up horses’ feet. There will be no riding of the horses during this lesson.
The Food at a Bliss Weekend is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Period.
The food at a Bliss weekend is a bit of a magical affair. We organize the groceries, the facility and the recipes. Then together the group of us work together to create meals that are as good for our bodies as they taste in our mouths. The food is as unprocessed and as “close-to-the-earth” as possible. The menus feature whole, real foods: fruits, vegetables (including tofu/tempeh), grains, pulses, eggs, snacks and treats.
Gaby runs the kitchen throughout the weekend and as an established ‘foodie’ she guides and orchestrates scrumptious vegetarian fare. She also encourages the enjoyment of wine as you cook, if you wish! Gabbing, laughing, chopping, cooking and imbibing – what could be better!
We ask everyone to sign up for one cook OR one clean timeslot. We call it our KARMA HOUR – it’s how we give to each other throughout the weekend.
