A few words from 2019 participants

“I learned to be kinder to myself, to be more aware and truly what it is to be more purposeful and live with intention.The food made it easy to be good to my body and provided a kick start to a better diet once I got home. The exercise throughout the day was amazing, the level of conversation and connection with other women was exactly what I needed to come home refreshed and approach the daily issues I have in my life with purpose and compassion.”

“It was really amazing to be able to observe how different I was from my first retreat a few years ago, to this one. The activities all worked really well together to bring about joy, and sense of community, and personal transformation!”

“It was a beautiful and healing week, with lots of opportunity to connect with kindred spirits in what might as well have been paradise. I returned feeling renewed, empowered, and inspired.”
