New Way of Being: Women’s Self-Renewal Retreat

Jan. 24-26

Kripalu Center for Health & Yoga in Lenox, MA

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

“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

Are you ready to accept exactly who and where you are right now? Do you crave space for reflection, rest, and renewal? What if you stopped holding back and became 100% YOU?
