Leading Ladies Self Care Mindfulness Retreats


"Everything that we do and everyone that we meet is put in our path for a purpose" (Marla Gibbs)

Leading Ladies weekend retreats are valuable female specific escapes to release your thinking and activate your wisdom from within to take care of self, embrace your skills, motivate those around you, process and focus thinking, and most importantly learn tips for managing stress in your busy life. These retreats are meant to be a time for relaxation and leadership learning discussions and approaches. Participants learn concepts of being aware and present in the now to support life shifts, the ability to identify clearly the hidden forces shaping your perceptions, learning techniques to be in the present and not on autopilot in our actions, and simply to take time to enjoy and smell the roses that life has to offer through adventure, discussion, and networking with others. Space is limited to a small number of ladies at each retreat (15-20 max). Non-refundable deposit to hold space $50

Writing Retreat - Storytelling for Funding

The grant funding process is very competitive. In fact many organizations are finding that combined efforts are more rewarding than writing solely on your own. But not only that, sometimes many organizations are competing for the same thing, doing the same thing, and not covering enough areas (communities), are maximizing potential resources to support those efforts. 

This retreat is setup as a relaxing and empowering writer's workshop to encourage writing but more importantly to foster and embrace the opportunities of collaboration, strategic thinking, and mapping a vision to receive grant funding. 

Hands-on activity, discussion, relaxing space, and feedback will provide the participate a creative, vision to take back to the workplace and apply for grant funds. In addition, there's an opportunity to collaborate with other participants on resources, volunteers, and writing for greater impact of funding.
