You will be one of a small group of other mothers. While everyone will be joining from different stages and stories, we all share the common thread of motherhood. There will be plenty of opportunities for social connection in between the workshops and solo time for those who are seeking that community connection.

A big part of this weekend is being able to have time with yourself if you wish. There are scheduled break times where you can hike, sit in nature, spend time on the water, or paddle. You will have access to the lake as well as the many hiking trails. We are surround be nature all over.
