Fri-Sun, January 18-20
Due to low enrollment, we're scaling the retreat back to 2 days and welcoming women to pay what you can. We need more women to sign up and at this point we would love to cover our financial obligation to Mt Madonna Center. In other words, the pricing below is negotiable - if you really want to come and pay less, just let us know.
Calling all women who love NVC to join Jean Morrison, Christine King, Laurie Brooks & Kristin Masters at this spacious mountain retreat center for a weekend of reflection and connection. We envision a restorative and contemplative retreat with writing, art, song, and play woven with NVC for a juicy and rejuvenating experience to start off the New Year. Cherish your spirit, nurture your body, open your heart, and share what’s alive in you in a safe and supportive environment. If you want more fun, more honesty and more compassion, bring it on and welcome the new year with an exquisite women's weekend.
