Rising StrongHER Retreat for Women

July 20-24, 2023 MEXICO

An immersive retreat designed to support women in pausing, breathing, learning, growing, and thriving. Through facilitated activities (individual and small group), you will have the opportunity to tap into and amplify your strengths. Rising StrongHER is a practice centered in the belief that we, as women, have the power and inner knowing to heal ourselves, and to thrive.

The retreat can accommodate 20 participants who will be divided into two small groups of 10 for various experiences to create an intimate group; there will also be activities and experiences involving both groups together.
