Though this phase of life is something that all women experience, we enter it uninformed, uninspired, and unsupported. Join us for a weekend retreat to look at menopause and perimenopause with a new lense. Our annual retreat offers opportunities to do yoga, writing, meditation, commune with nature and each other, eat healthy and delicious food, and rest.
