Program Details

Do you long to reconnect with your wild soul? Are you in transition and asking, “What is uniquely mine to do?” Would you like to learn to stand in allegiance to yourself and be 100% you in all situations?  Transformational coach, author and master retreat facilitator Renee Trudeau has designed a deeply restorative, nature-based self-renewal retreat just for women. This magical one-day experience will include highlights from Renee’s weekend Kripalu retreat. Experience how to:

  • Come home to yourself through the art/science of self-care and start your day intentionally.
  • Awaken your feminine power and learn daily practices for cultivating and harnessing your energy.
  • Strengthen and trust your intuition so you connect with “What is uniquely mine to do?”
  • Explore how to find your work/play/rest sweet spot and learn Renee’s favorite tools for balanced living!
  • Speak your truth and awaken your essence through gentle movement, community, singing and meaningful connection.
  • Unleash your creativity and learn about the power of regenerative rest.
  • Gain clarity/focus around your next steps (pssst….Renee is a former career strategist!)
  • Rest in stillness, nature, meditation, Yoga Nidra and learn Renee’s favorite practices for peace and well-being.

Enjoy authentic connection with soulful women in their 20s–80s as you embrace new ways of being and experience greater freedom and joy. Read feedback from past retreat attendees here.
