2017 SJW Put to Bed But Our PoTENtial Remains!


We, the producers, want to express to everyone how much gratitude we have for you all who attended SJW this year!

We know there were some bumps in the road with parking, etc. and you jumped right in to help make it work. When someone was struggling, you reached out to one another. We asked for help and you stepped up when needed; thank you. We cannot express how much you all mean to us and how we appreciate your “get ‘er done” spirits.

You all bring so much joy, determination, adventure, compassion and just all around fabulous energy to the mountain each year. The smiles on your faces, the connections you make, the unfoldment of the journey for each of you is what brings us stepping back up to the plate every time to make sure Submissive Journey Weekend is there every year.

This year we connected with our roots and acknowledged those who came before us. They lifted us up and remain in our hearts as we travel forward. We spoke so much about growth, our struggles, our loves and our poTENtial. Keep that close in your hearts, encourage it to grow and share it with others. Don’t be afraid to reach out to the ones you connected with this weekend, strengthen those networks, share your knowledge with others, keep learning, keep growing, build those bonds and love yourselves!

Come grow with us in 2018!


Your SJW Production Team,

2017 SJW Registration: The Fabulous & Not So Great News

Not So Great News:

If you were waiting to put in your application, registration reached “full” this weekend with the last of the acceptances going out.

Fabulous News:

You can still apply because there’s a waiting list!

How does the waiting list work?

SJW applicant spots are not locked in until applicants pay and there is a time frame in which initial payment must be made to hold the spot. Also in case spots become open because someone has to cancel/has an emergency etc. The waiting list is first come, first serve.

SJW 2017 – 10 Things About Me!

It’s hard to believe we’re heading to the mountain for our 10th anniversary of Submissive Journey Weekend (SJW)!

As always, your hosts have selected a theme designed to give us all guidance and focus as we come together to explore who we are – both separately and together. This year’s them is “10 Things About Me.” As you might imagine, this implies that each of us will be looking internally to figure out who we are – AND WHAT THAT MEANS.

  • What makes up the “me” that so many people love?
  • How can I be the best ME there is?
  • How can I figure out what that even means?

SJW has always focused on self-discovery and building a foundation for ourselves as s-types (or little letter people). This year, we’re taking it to the next level. We want you to leave the mountain knowing 10 things more deeply about yourself than when you arrived.

  • You’re pretty. What does that mean about how you interact with others?
  • You’re shy. What does that mean about how you can alter your service to your partner?
  • You’re exuberant. How does that impact how you project yourself to others?

Go beyond the surface and find out how you can discover the deeper, brighter meanings behind all these truths you to hold to be true about YOU. And if you’re able to translate that information into better service to your partners and/or communities, so much the better!

Come celebrate 10 amazing years with us, and share with us all of who you are!

Announcing Submissive Journey Weekend 2017!

How many teachers / parents / caregivers told us we weren’t living up to our potential? GAH! No one wants to hear that!!

The reality is that all of us have some really great stuff inside us, just waiting for our time to flourish. For most of us, it’s not about whether or not we can do it – it’s whether or not we have the passion to carry through.

So, how can turn that inside potential into external possibility? Well, that’s what this weekend is all about – discovering that spark within you, and carrying it out into the world.

Meet some great people.

Have some lovely down time.

Share ideas with people you’d probably never get to sit next to if you weren’t on the mountain.

Find your passion, share it with others, and help others see your vision. Let’s find a way to carry our potential out to a place where we can make positive change happen in the world.
