“Self-care—the art of attuning and responding to your needs and desires—is a moment to moment process. It’s not about adding something to your to-do list; it’s about cultivating a new way of being.”  – Renee Trudeau

“During a woman’s life, she has the need to retreat, replenish, renew and re-energize.
