Save Stargazen

Has Dianne (Di) Belisle touched your life in a positive way? I think many people can say that she has. Di is a loving, generous soul who always has time to help her friends, whether it’s a major home renovation project or an understanding ear.  Now it’s time for us to support Di Bell. 

Due to an unexpected financial setback caused by an unusual employment situation, Di is unable to acquire the funds needed to support her business and home, Stargazen Women’s Retreat.  As a result, Stargazen may have to be sold. Stargazen Woodland Retreat and Event Center (also known as Stargazen Women’s Retreat) has been a safe space and retreat area for many decades that has touched the lives of hundreds of people.

By raising these funds, Di will be able to devote her time and effort to growing and supporting Stargazen. You see, Di’s and her beloved partner, Raven, created Stargazen. After Raven’s death in 2012, Di became the sole supporter of Stargazen. 

In order to keep Stargazen as a safe, peaceful, and beautiful retreat space, financial support is needed to compensate for unforeseen events that occured with Di’s employment.

This GoFundMe campaign was created on Raven’s birthday, unbeknownst to the organizers. This is a special week for Di, let’s make it magical with donations to maintain Raven’s legacy and Di’s passion to continue helping other women through this retreat space. Please consider gifting Raven as she watches from the spirit realm and to Di as she provides in the physical realm.

Di continues to dream and grow Stargazen Women’s Retreat with plans to improve and maintain the property to continue to be the perfect space for anyone who needs help, as well as a wonderful place for events and getaways.  

Stargazen Women’s Retreat is nestled in the gorgeous woodlands of West Central Wisconsin. It’s the perfect venue for small group gatherings and individual solace. Many people have fallen in love with the mini dwellings with their fanciful decor,  simple elegance, and cozy layouts. Each dwelling is nestled among tall white pines and surrounded by enchanting elaborate gardens and sacred spaces and art pieces. All of this needs maintenance, cleaning, and upkeep. 

The funds raised will keep Di on the land to maintain and coordinate all that is needed to keep this space ready for those in need of a safe, peaceful, and beautiful retreat space for solo to group events.
