FINDING YOUR VOICE - Weekend Retreat - October 20 - 22, 2017

Facilitated by Renée Hartleib and Vanessa Papillon

Do you long to connect with yourself but can’t find the time or space? Is it easy for you to put others first but you have trouble taking care of yourself? Do you know there’s more in you than what you’ve been expressing?

If so, this weekend retreat is an invitation to say YES to yourself.

Through guided writing, reflection, and joyful group singing, we’ll dive deep, exploring ways you can uncover, express, and embody your most inner, soulful self. The one that deserves nurturing. The one the rest of the world should have a chance to get to know.

Spend a weekend connecting with yourself again. Canoe, kayak, or walk along the stunning Mersey River and in the surrounding forest. Laugh, sing, and share delicious meals with friends you haven’t met yet.

Words have the power to heal and connect. Join us to see how your life might be different if your outer voice were a truer expression of your inner voice.

No writing or singing experience is necessary!
