7th Annual Women's Wellness Retreat: Aligning Your Life with Joy

7th Annual Women’s Wellness Retreat

January 18-20, 2019


Aligning Your Life with Joy

Our culture is divided, chaotic, and often unkind right now. We need female energy more than ever. But, how can we give what we don’t have? Learning how to care for ourselves means lining up our priorities so that we are making our values a reality. It means taking time to care for ourselves as caregivers. It means filling our cups so we can reach out into the world and fill others. Join us for an uplifting retreat for women of all ages and walks of life. Choose from 16 different sessions and workshops. Start 2019 out on the right foot!

This is one of the most looked forward to weekends of the year at The Homestead! This one sells out every year so grab your spot!
