Gathering as women for a retreat can be a transformational experience. In a world where competition and measuring ourselves against one another is still so prevalent, it can be profoundly soothing to connect with other women in a safe and supportive setting where respect and mutual empowerment is a given. When we add the element of spiritual practice in a women’s retreat, we have the opportunity to recognize the divine feminine in everyone and everything.
Women’s retreats vary widely in their content, but when women get together for a shared purpose, there is always a sense of sisterhood. Women can leave feeling inspired, and deeply affirmed. A side benefit of connecting deeply with other women, is that you can’t help but get to know one another! It’s common to leave a women’s retreat with a handful of new close friends.
