Ignited Women Weekend Retreat

Awaken your senses and begin to live more fully as a midlife woman! Through movement, meditation, discussion, and writing, students will be guided through a re-awakening into our physical bodies. This workshop is designed to help women reclaim our significance and value in a safe environment.

“Midlife” for women is a deep time of transition. As our bodies change we are challenged to understand what our role may be for this next phase of our lives. We may get a sense that it's time to let go of old wounds and the notion that we are “not enough.” Instead this is a great opportunity to step into our wisdom and power. In this workshop you will:

  • Re-awaken the connection between self and body through gentle yoga and meditation.
  • Uncover what's most important to you through inspired and stimulating writing and group exercises.
  • Discuss the myths and realities of midlife transitions for women.
  • Identify core desired feelings (words that represent how you want to feel) in various areas of your life, and use them as a guidepost to make choices and set goals.
This workshop includes an Ignited Women Workbook Journal. It contains exercises from The Desire Map, a holistic approach to life planning that uses your core desired feelings as the guidance system for your goal setting. Also included in the workbook are recommended meditations, yoga practices and other resources to support you in your midlife transition.
