Inner Knowing: Women’s Retreat for Mindfulness, Empowerment and Enjoyment

With Judith Waldman and Kara-Lee Ruotolo

December 6 - 8, 2019

Inner Knowing: Women’s Retreat for Mindfulness, Empowerment and Enjoyment

Welcome to our journey together.

We invite you to join us, Judith and Kara-Lee, and this gathering of women, as we nurture our senses, create energy and balance, and enjoy our creativity.

We bring women together to deepen our connection with ourselves and with others and to strengthen our ability to create change within and in the world at large: We care, we share, we learn, and we have fun.

We are providing a time for reflection and growth, self-care, and self-knowing in order to enhance our ability to live with purpose and resilience.

Throughout our retreat we have opportunities to explore what gets in the way of having access to our own wisdom and how to move forward. We also have opportunities for relaxation and renewal: Being present, being true to ourselves, being Wise Women!

We hope you enjoy our own unique blend of processes that include Mindfulness Meditation and Movement, Gentle Yoga, Art, Music, Writing, and Playfulness.

From Judith and Kara-Lee:
“We love sharing our combined years of experience and practices with other women. This retreat will be suffused with our caring, enthusiasm, and wisdom.”

We will all be nurtured by a lush old growth forest, a serene sanctuary, a lovely labyrinth, and fabulous food. Upon arriving, one can feel the sacredness of the space.

Give yourself this gift of time and care and learning and it will flow on!

From a past retreat participant:
“My experience at the Women’s Retreat was an absolute joy! Self care was at the heart of our daily agenda and the tools and strategies I learned throughout the weekend were easy to integrate into my busy life. They have already had a positive impact, decreasing my stress level and increasing my sense of well being. I look forward to more!”

$398, includes lodging in a single room, all meals, and the workshop.
$358, includes lodging in a shared double room, all meals, and the workshop.
