“Risk something or forever sit with your dreams” ~ Herb Brooks

Creekside Inn - Location of our Women's RetreatAre you wondering what happened to your dreams? Do you even remember a time you had dreams? Are you struggling with finding your footing in the journey of life due to a transition (divorce, job change, empty nest, retirement), or are you just exhausted from the everyday busyness of life without a moment to yourself?

If so, take a risk and join a group of like minded women for a weekend of non-threatening writing activities (geared to the non-writer!) designed to awaken you to your next steps. In addition, special guest facilitator, Vicki Wilson (, will lead us in a meditation designed to help you move forward in your life.

Even if you’ve never thought of yourself as a “retreat person”, give yourself the gift of a pause in your life to allow yourself to rest, restore and rejuvenate your soul.

Led by trained retreat facilitator, Deanna Bates, you will be gently guided to discover those long ago dreams and return home renewed, re-energized and ready to live ~ the life of your dreams.
