Calling all women who love NVC, or are new to learning NVC, to join us at this spacious mountain retreat center for our 6th annual weekend of reflection and connection. We envision a restorative and contemplative retreat with writing, art, song, and play woven with NVC for a relaxing and rejuvenating experience to start off your year. And yes, it’s “Valentines Weekend” as well, so come to enjoy the heartfelt connections and leave in time on Sunday to continue to celebrate with your Valentines at home.
