Live a More Fulfilling Life
Career, family, friends — today's working woman can thrive in all of these areas, and still feel that something is missing.
When you’re taking care of everyone and everything else, it’s easy to forget to take care of yourself. That’s why it’s important to take time out — especially when you feel like don’t have time. Self-care is not self-indulgence! Everything you do, you do at a high level, so there’s no excuse for neglecting your own needs.

Come and experience the majesty of the Blue Ridge Mountains and join with other multi-faceted professional women for an immersive experience that’s structured first and foremost around you. This retreat will blend the science of personal leadership development with mindful relaxation and personalized creative reflection in a natural setting.

Take this long weekend to invest your time and energy in yourself. You’ll come out on the other side with a plan for growth that’s tailored to your own needs. When you’re back in your daily routine, you’ll be facing each day from a place of strength, with a greater understanding of your unique qualities as a leader, a communicator and as a woman.

“Life is Work and Work is Life, and You are You through All of That.” — Jennifer Connelly
