Women's Ways - The Program
The week will look a little like this...... whether you are choosing to arrive Friday for a relaxed start or on Saturday just in time for check-in and our welcome event it doesn't matter, as long as you are there on time to indulge yourself in a week like no other.
Each day there are pre-breakfast walks, yoga and meditation options or just head to breakfast to start the day slow.
Each morning there are from the stage speakers - and we will also hear from some of our team as they share their wisdom and experiences. Women like Bridget who is a Death Doula and runs a Death Cafe or Ruth who launched a book, had a big vision, and then her life fell apart - everyday women following their passions and dreams.
Then you will be (if you'd like) part of a smaller group that meets each day for a catch-up before lunch.
After lunch is the workshop and free time before dinner and some entertainment with the amazing Sarah Potenza and Tonya Boyd Cannon who are joining us all the way from the US.
