The Rejuvenation Retreat: Exploring Grace & Grit 

We work. We parent (our human or fur babies). We clean. We cook. We repeat. We are badasses.

We get sick. We burn out. We want change. 

So let’s change – together. 

Women of all ages and stages, you are invited to spend the day connecting with yourself, a person that matters greatly to many, but is too often overlooked. This one-of-a-kind curated retreat will feature dynamic and diverse local experts who will guide you through uplifting dance, restorative yoga, mindfulness practice, and a silent guided walking meditation with a very special smudging and “letting go” ceremony. A more detailed itinerary can be found below.

Over the course of the day, you will be gently exposed to the concept of cultivating grit and the importance of grace to help you better weather the inevitable stormy periods, the moments of light and dark, the highs and lows. You will spend time reflecting, journalling and discussing your experiences as they arise. You will receive a workbook developed and designed to support your personal exploration of grit and grace.

And, of course, you will eat. You will eat delicious, soul-soothing and life-affirming food that will make even your toes feel good. You’ll leave feeling nourished in body, heart and mind.

Let this day be a day for rest, laughter, self-discovery, and connection. Let this be a day for you.

We are delighted to introduce our first speaker, Dr. Sheri Madigan, who will speak to the importance of the first 2000 days of your child’s life.

She currently directs the Determinants of Child Development Lab, a lab dedicated to conducting research on the multidimensional influences that shape children’s developmental trajectories. Suffice it to say, we have an all-star speaker lined up for our first of three speaker sessions for 2018.
