       Come on in and browse an incredible spectrum of Outlandish Spring and Summer possibilities.  What great fun and how expanding it all is on every level. We offer 21, count them oh wow, weeks of Workshops starting April 4.

      Plus, each week includes a Weekend Workshop Exploration, total now 42 Workshops. Then, some weeks  include Special Topics. So, within a Workshop Week look for the Week '#A' for the Weekend Exploration topic. B or C, etc are the Special Sessions.

    Women, we do have wondrous choices, Smile. 

    We sure hope you can join us.  There are activities for a spectrum of interests and skill levels. We offer sliding scales to be more accessible to women with limited resources and so you can help make it possible for others to attend if you have more abundance.

    I am simply thrilled with the wondrous women coming to Facilitate, the breadth of topics, the number of women coming to stay for weeks to make these Workshops possible & with your presense here.

    So, women, jump on in and here we go.... YES!

A.         Adobe Building Weeks

Weeks 5-6, 8-11, 13, 15-17, 20

 Workshops run weekly beginning each Friday & ending the following Friday.

That’s 7 incredible nights & 8 full-spectrum days in each Week beginning April 4.

Links to more info in Sidebar and 'view all pages' link below.


 Oh what incredible fun—come and build cabins with a wondrous group of other women. Put your hands to the wood and clay and learn by doing.  If you cannot come for the entire week, we invite you to attend our wondrous range of Workshop Weekend Explorations.


Adobe Building Workshops and some Weekend Workshops are facilitated by Jae Haggard who has built houses or other buildings for women in a range of designs in several states since 1974.  Several talented women are facilitating the various Weekend Workshop Explorations on Healing, Creativity or Construction.  Deliciously full weeks


Included in each Outlandish Adobe week is a review of a range of basic construction principles, safety and tool use to make sure you understand the scope no matter when you attend.   YOU CAN Build a House!


We figure about 4 hours of a spectrum of hands-on construction experience & instruction 4 days per week.  That leaves lots of opportunity for other activities, connecting and the Weekend Workshops.  We plan to build at least 3 adobe cabins in staggered stages of construction so we all can experience most construction phases during whichever weeks we attend.   Learn by Doing


Naturally, the basic rhythm of each day includes great meals, relaxation, hot tubs, hikes, singing, games, conversation & more.  A Wonderful Spectrum of Activities & Alone Time


 To expand your week, each weekend we offer a different  Weekend Workshop Exploration theme. You can choose you Workshop Week according to what Weekend Explorations tickle you most. 


Or, you are also invited to come just Friday to Sunday to enjoy the Weekend Exploration, great food, fun activities & wonderful women.


 We consider this full-spectrum blend key to the ideal Workshop experience.

 Connection, Personal Growth, Creativity, Wholeness/Healing
