Better Everyday Women’s Retreat 2018 // October 4th – 7th Chico, CA
The weekend will provide an intimate setting in which mind, body, and spirit will be nurtured and nourished. This retreat is going to go beyond the standard lecture format; we want you to get hands-on and in the trenches with us, and our time together will not be about us standing up in front of you just teaching – but instead we will be leading you through the process of self-discovery and healing. We want to build the weekend on the foundation of women coming together to support, learn, and grow with each other.
We truly believe that we are better together.
We will share meals, enjoy time in nature, and have opportunities for unique experiences together that will be all about play and joy!
The entire weekend will be facilitated by the amazing Traci Corbett who has an incredible way of bringing it all together and will help us all have the most unique and tangible experience by guiding us to really immerse in the weekend in a loving and compassionate way.
We can’t wait to spend the weekend with all of you!
