Maybe you just need a day to breathe and step away from the usual grind. Whatever you bring, we offer you a space for reflecting on how you align with a path that fuels your life with joy and meaning.

Fall 2023 Attendee

"It is so hard to carve out time for myself so I can reflect on where I've been and where I want to go next, even though I really need to. This retreat helped me do just that and I'm so glad that I did it. It was just the thing I needed to help me reset and I left feeling refreshed, re-energized, and inspired. Grateful for these women." 
  • Is this therapy?
    No, Women Who Thrive is not a form of therapy. Our retreats are designed to provide you with the tools, knowledge and support you need to cultivate a sense of wellbeing and mental health. We focus on creating a safe and supportive environment so that you can explore and develop your own inner resilience and self-care practices.
  • What should I wear?
    We want you to be comfortable. We suggest wearing comfortable clothing and shoes to our retreats. We also recommend bringing layers, as temperatures can fluctuate throughout the day. We suggest avoiding strong fragrances, as some people may have allergies.
  • What if I’ve never meditated or been on retreat?
    You are totally fine! All practices will be basic, easy to follow. Taking time out of the hustle and bustle can be by itself a challenge, but we have a team ready to help you let go and relax.
  • What should I bring?
    We encourage you to bring a water bottle and very little else. If you would like to sit on the floor or stretch out during breaks, we suggest you bring a floor cushion or yoga mat. A limited number will be provided.
  • What is the weather/postponement policy?
    In the event that the retreat needs to be postponed due to inclement weather or other issues, we will honor your ticket for a future date. If you are not able to attend the rescheduled retreat date, you may request a refund.
  • What is your illness policy?
    Our illness policy for our retreats is that any participant who is not feeling well or is showing signs of illness should stay home and seek medical attention if needed. We take the health and safety of our participants very seriously and will not allow anyone to participate who may be contagious. If you have any questions or concerns about this policy, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us for more information.
  • What is your refund policy?
    **Refund Policy ** We understand that plans can change, and we want to ensure a fair and transparent refund policy for our retreat participants. Please carefully read and familiarize yourself with our refund policy outlined below: **1. Cancellation Prior to One Week of the Event:** If you need to cancel your participation in the retreat more than one week before the event's start date, you will be eligible for a refund of 50% of the total retreat fee paid. However, instead of a cash refund, we are pleased to offer you the option of applying 50% of the retreat fee towards your participation in the next scheduled retreat. This way, you can still benefit from the retreat experience while accommodating changes in your plans. **2. Cancellation within One Week of the Event:** If you choose to cancel your participation within one week of the event's start date, we regret to inform you that no cash refunds will be provided. However, you will still have the opportunity to utilize 50% of the retreat fee as credit towards your participation in the next retreat. This policy is in place to allow us to manage our logistical arrangements and ensure a smooth retreat experience for all participants. **3. Cancellation within 24 Hours of the Event:** In the unfortunate event that you need to cancel your participation within 24 hours of the retreat's start time, no refunds or credits will be issued. This policy is in place due to the significant challenges involved in reorganizing activities and accommodations at such short notice. **4. Transferability:** If you are unable to attend the retreat, you have the option to transfer your spot to another individual, subject to our approval and provided that the new participant meets all the required criteria for participation. Please notify us in advance if you intend to transfer your spot to another person. **5. Special Circumstances:** We understand that exceptional circumstances can arise, such as medical emergencies or unforeseen events. If you find yourself in such a situation, please contact us as soon as possible to discuss your case. We will handle these situations on a case-by-case basis with empathy and understanding. If you have any questions or need further clarification, please don't hesitate to contact us.
