Dear Sisters ~ Greetings! (Keep this link/page—it has many recommended/curated resources.) I have returned to my home in the Blue Ridge mountains and have been holding you in my heart. I hope you received the email on transitioning on Sunday with the contact list (check the tabs at the bottom for A-L and M-Z). Thanks for your authenticity, open-hearts, beautiful engagement and exquisite support of one another. We loved being with you. Connection = medicine. I encourage you to reach out to your pod/women you connected with; perhaps a hike/dinner date or attending a dance class together? Please respect everyone’s privacy and do not send any group emails; the contact list is for you to connect with your pod or 1-1.

Enjoy all the support handouts from your packet plus all the resources below. You can view all my 2024-25 retreats as of today; I’ll be back at the gorgeous Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health (Berkshire Mountains of Western MA—stunning foliage!) Oct. 25-27 for Soul Tending: Cultivating Grace, Power & Intuition, A Women’s Self-Renewal Retreat for more singing/dancing and sisterhood! Every retreat I do is different. For a limited time, you can also access Still, Dark & Quiet (a deep rest mini virtual retreat); download today, it includes a long Yoga Nidra session and singing; details.

Want to extend and enliven your retreat experience? Download an online retreat (video/audio download). Women love these inexpensive mini retreats—enjoy them from your bathtub, the jogging trail or your favorite cozy nook! Download/learn more here.

Feeling called to facilitate or co-facilitate a group or retreat for friends or women in your area? I just created this beautiful training/mentoring course you can download and access 24/7—it includes a long video and Q/A and a resource guide/tips and tons of resources and templates. It’s based on our very popular (now retired) Facilitator Training Program. For a limited time we’re offering Secrets to Facilitating Life-Changing Groups/Retreats in Uncertain Times for $195; access it here.

With joy and gratitude—Renee and the RTA Team  P.S. I love to receive testimonials about your retreat experience—feel free to send any my way!  It really helps retreat “newbies” understand why they should invest in themselves!  You can read testimonials from past retreats here.


YES! I’D LOVE TO SUPPORT YOUR COMPANY, TEAM, ORGANIZATION OR WOMEN’S GROUP.  I’m booking speaking events now through 2025.  My primary work is speaking at companies, organizations and at conferences around finding balance/resiliency through practicing the art & science of self-care. Whether it’s a 50-minute keynote, an interactive workshop or a half or full-day custom retreat, I’d love to support your team, employees, women’s network or speak at your next regional/national conference. Recent clients include: Advent Health, Merrill Lynch, The Hewlett Foundation, Council on Family Violence, Bank of America, The Center for Women in Law, The National Association of OB-GYNS, hospitals, law firms, universities, nonprofit organizations and national women’s leadership forums. I’ve been speaking professionally for 30 years. Learn more here.

RETREATS AND SUPPORT:  I recommend taking a personal planning retreat every 90 days. From stillness comes discernment.  Much more on my blog on tips for taking retreats. Read here to learn more about the dance of the feminine/masculine (also more on this theme in my book Nurturing the Soul of Your Family).
