Topsail Island, North Carolina
...with other women to engage and honor this unique time in our lives of changing over.
While some believe this to be an end, it is more a beginning than any other.
The path ahead awaits a new definition, a new voice to continue the story of you!
This retreat seeks to give women back their sense of purpose, renewed sense of self, and appreciation for their wisdom and value as they journey forward through the changes of feminine life.
A time to hold a sacred space, share and support one another emotionally and spiritually, discovering and sharing the wisdom gained from life.
We will provide an opportunity to acknowledge each woman, honor who they were and celebrate who you are now.
It is a time of becoming.

What to expect:
Gathering Circles & Ceremony:
We come together in an intimate circle to meet each other where we are creating a safe place as we take on this journey of reflection. There will be spontaneous moments of release and letting go, setting intentions and finding your path.
Meditation & Mindfulness:
Over the course of the weekend, we have simple and non-intrusive moments of meditation and mindfulness to find our calm and balance. These are tools you can take into your daily life when you re-enter your routines. These are approachable practices from the beginner to those who have mastered this art.
Yoga Practice & Massage:
Each morning we will begin the day with a gentle yoga session to connect with our bodies. Our amazing instructor will meet people where they are no matter their mobility, whether new or practiced to this art form to begin to open you up to the process. *We will have optional mini-massage sessions included for those who wish.
Journal & Reflection:
There is a perfect balance of rest, relaxation, and renewal on our retreat weekends. You will be able to realize new paths you may want to explore as you start fresh, and you will be given plenty of time for your own personal introspection.
I love adding this creative outlet. You do not need to be artistic or creative to take on this activity, but you will be surprised how you will want to continue the practice when you leave.
Quiet & Rest:
Finding rest is important and key. You can do that on the river in these beautiful, secluded mountains. Go for a walk on the trail behind the house, or just sit on the deck and listen to nature.
Whole Food Mindful Meals:
I have always taken great care and focus on creating whole food fresh meals. You are being catered to this weekend and cared for no doubt! It all lies in my hands for you to savor and nurture.
