About This Event

Hosted in Dahlonega, Georgia: Home to Wine, Waterfalls & Gold Mines, Uplift & Inspire: Women's Empowerment Retreat is an experience that seeks to form true connection among its retreat sisters.

Have you have often wondered how other women coped with the realities of life, love, work and the ENTIRE female experience?

How DO other women balance physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellness?

This women's empowerment retreat seeks to answer those questions by creating:

❖A powerful community where women connect to share real life stories & experiences

❖An intimate setting to discuss solutions to issues affecting women and how to maximize our unique potential

❖A quiet getaway to create effective physical, mental, emotional and spiritual self care regimens

❖A small army of lady supporters who challenge each other to conquer limiting beliefs and reach new heights

Join us as we tackle self-care topics, discuss issues relevant to the female experience and seek to UPLIFT & INSPIRE each other throughout this retreat.

“Sometimes we have to step out of our comfort zones. We have to break the rules. And we have to discover the sensuality of fear. We need to face it, challenge it, dance with it.”

This beautiful city is complete with Southern Charm, rushing waterfalls and rolling hills of vineyards. Unique wineries and tasting rooms pour a host of varietals and blends. Nature lovers marvel at the tallest waterfall in Georgia - Amicalola Falls, located just 30 minutes away in Dawsonville, Georiga.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

It would my first vacation in the mountains. I think getting away and beginning a new routine would be good for me and a friend. Dianne
