Soul Care Retreat: Belovedness

Our busy lives can have us running so fast we forget who we are. Invest a half day caring for your soul by stepping into more of your belovedness. Let go of the inner messages that get in the way. There is generous time for reflection with a variety of stations that offer experiences of both, journalling, going for a walk, resting, or meeting one-on-one with Wendy for a mini-coaching session.

(3 hrs)
