April 20-22 ~ Embracing the Wild Unknown: Women’s Self-Renewal Retreat

1440 Multiversity, Santa Cruz County, CA

De-stress.   Restore inner peace.   Nourish your body.   Relax your mind.

Program Details

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 kinder, gentler relationship with yourself. Are you in transition and asking, “What’s next?” Would you like to find self-acceptance–and even reverence–for who and where you are right now?

Join Renée Trudeau for quiet reflection, rest, and renewal during this deeply restorative retreat for women at all life stages. Explore the transformative power of self-care in a nurturing, empowering, and supportive environment. Nourish your body, mind, and soul, and integrate self-renewal strategies into daily life as you learn how to:

  • Meditate and reconnect to your heart’s desire and life purpose
  • Experience self-care as spiritual practice and learn Renee’s favorite tools/practices for uncertain times
  • Become comfortable living in the unknown and access self-compassion for exactly where you are
  • Learn to balance yin/yang energy and unleash your feminine power

Enjoy authentic connection with like-minded women as you explore new ways of being and experience greater freedom and joy.

“During a woman’s life, she has the need to retreat, replenish, renew and re-energize. Renée created a safe and sacred space at her retreat and the weekend taught me how to better cultivate—and practice—much needed self-care. This experience allowed me to stop, listen, learn and further blossom. Thank you for all you do to support women Renée!”   —Carol O’Neil, Board Member, Kripalu Center for Yoga & Wellness, Lenox, MA

“Renée has the amazing ability to create a nurturing, sacred space that honors and celebrates each woman.  This retreat was transformative.  I now get how essential it is to take time to nurture myself.  I am still using what I learned at the Self-Renewal Retreat in my daily life.”  —Mary K., California
