A women’s retreat for compassionate caregivers
and heart-centered professionals

Feeling drained when you think about your day ahead?

Wondering where your mojo has gone?

Wish you could nurture yourself better?

Want to get your self-care on track?

Could your spirit use some uplifting that lasts?

All too often, compassionate, heart-centered nurturers just like you find themselves on the back burner, cycling through mental, emotional, physical exhaustion. You have a loving heart and want to give, yet sometimes when that well comes up empty you feel drained and straining to give.

What you really want, what you deep down desire, is not just rest or renewal. It’s joy, that springs forth easily from a well that does not run dry.

You wish to be a Joy-filled Nurturer.

Worthy woman, this Joy-filled Nurturer’s Retreat is for you.
