Woman Within Weekend Retreat

A little over a year ago, I was able to participate in a really profound personal transformation experience. I knew very little about the group other than my former mother-in-law was very active with it & had asked me if I would like to attend. Having done an extensive amount of personal growth & spiritual work for most of my life, I went into the weekend feeling a little like, "I know all  these techniques already. I don't know why I am here." I came out of the weekend feeling like, "I have never accepted & loved myself and other women as much as I do right now. I feel a strong sisterhood with all women & such a peaceful acceptance of all aspects of myself. I am home!"

It was an incredible experience & I would like to invite all women to explore this retreat. The retreat consisted of women from all walks of life. All ages, races, economic backgrounds. The only common thread we all had was that we were women. Some were on an active path of awakening and for some this retreat was just the beginning. Every single woman who attended walked away feeling shifted, lifted & gifted. Gifted with the sense of who she really is and her place in the world.

Information about how you can explore this life-changing experience is listed below. Please do feel free to contact me with any questions. If you have are facing financial challenges, please be aware that they do offer scholarships. Don't be afraid to ask.

Love & Light,

How do you want
your life to be different?

How will you know if this is the right time in your life to do the Woman Within® training?
At Woman Within, we trust that each woman intuitively knows what is right for her. The training provides the tools to delve deeper into your own inner wisdom and see which parts of yourself need further acknowledgement and integration, so that you can live your life to the fullest. We are there to support you — in all your potential and power, with all your shadows and challenges — to be who you want to be. The only requirement for attendance is an openness to experiencing yourself.

How can one weekend possibly change your life?
For some, it is the opportunity to be heard as they discover their voice and speak their truth. For others, it is having the space and time to experience intense emotions without judgment. Still for others, it is the rare experience of compassion and strength created by women coming together to witness, accept, empower and honor themselves.

By women, for women
The Woman Within Training was created by women, for women. It is a unique opportunity to explore your essence as a woman and your life choices. The training is not therapy. It offers a series of exercises, guided imagery and intense individual and group work so that you can see and transform what holds you back. The one-to-one staff ratio allows for personal attention and ensures that you are witnessed and supported as you reclaim your passion for life and belief in yourself.

"During the weekend, I spent time with myself, my real self. After years of not wanting to look, I discovered I'm not so bad after all. Just a little sad and a little angry. Nothing a little compassion can't sort out."
Louise LeGat
London, United Kingdom

"I know myself better now. I am able to feel my feelings instead of denying them. I understand the difference between my thoughts and feelings. I stand my ground instead of blowing in the breeze to everyone else's desires. I can say no!"
Ann Becker
Grand Ledge, Michigan

"When I went to the weekend I had a hole in my heart, a missing piece that kept me from being whole. At the weekend I found that piece and it has remained with me ever since."
Barbara Vittetoe
Puyallup, Washington

"At the training I learned how to speak from my heart. My relationships with both men and women have improved because I can communicate more clearly what I need, what I want and who I am. It's a lot of work but worth the effort."
Anne Recchia
Rochester, New York

"The Woman Within Training moved me forward and more deeply into my own life, through issues that used to block me, toward a perspective of valuing all parts of my past and all parts of myself. Being part of the Woman Within community has opened new paradigms for me about community, collaboration and culture. I feel more connected not only to my own life but also to history and my vision for the future."
Bonnie Reagan
