"Thank you SO much for organizing this retreat! I still can't fully put into words just how magical the weekend was for me. I felt like I finally found that light again that had dimmed over the years. I made so many connections. I feel so open to all the possiblities in front of me and can't wait to see what the future holds" - K. Morro

"After spending the weekend at this retreat I was truly transformed. I came away with a whole new perspective on life and a new determination to see the value in myself AND in others. As a 3 year Breast Cancer survivor I've been on a healing journey and I have been looking for a deeper connection with myself and others. I shed some tears, it was cleansing. The connections were amazing, but the "disconnection" was pretty great too! How refreshing to put the cell phone down and step away from social media for 3 days. And just BE. Be ME, Be FREE, Be open. I would definitely recommend this retreat, you will find what your heart is looking for." - T. Welsh

"By the end of the retreat, my overall feeling was happiness for having done something so big for myself. I had feeling of guilt initially because it felt like a lot of time to spend just on me (and not my family). By the end, I knew that it had been worth it. The time away, the workshops, meeting other women...all of it was a good reminder of how important it is to nourish myself so that I can appreciate the parts of my life that mean the most to me." - M. Obrien

Shared Accomodation Details:

The shared accomodation for the 2 nights are located in rooms with a combination of bunk beds and queen beds. The rooms can have anywhere from 1 bunk bed (2 women) to 4 bunk beds (8 women). Typically, women that are coming with a friend or 2, will be placed in rooms with 1-2 bunk beds (2-4 women) and women coming alone are in the rooms with more beds. This makes for a more friendlier dynamic, as the women have the option to make new friends or stick to themselves. There is not much time spent in the rooms, there are lots of common areas for women to socialize or curl up with a good book.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
