The Joy of Living

Women's  Retreat

May 16 -18, 2014

Are you feeling disconnected from life?  Do you feel there is more to life than what you are currently experiencing?  Are you exhausted from taking care of everyone except  yourself?


Join us!,  for an experiential weekend of renewal, experiencing life’s joys and learning how to play again.  Leave the weekend with a new joy-filled way of being in the world.  Experience the joy of being a woman,.... of just"being" you.  Participate in the activities and workshops or just enjoy some time to yourself. We will pamper and feed you upon your arrival and the weekend is all about you! 


Here is a listing of activities offered: pampering to include: shoulder and neck massage, rose petal foot bath, paraffin hand wraps even nail polish, yoga, dance, nature walks, art journaling, journal writing, drumming, meditation, sound healing meditation, self empowerment through cooking and discussion groups with topics including; identifying limiting beliefs, living from your heart, joy of sexuality, creating sacred space and more. There will be opportunity for private healing sessions of various energy healing techniques,  if so desired.


We may be adding or changing the activities a bit, just as nothing every stays the same. Tonya and I have created  this retreat to be of service to you. We have brought together a team of extraordinary women to help create this special weekend, to help you remember the joys of life as we have. Everyone deserves to live a joyous life!
