Self-Renewal Retreat Sample Schedule: please note times may vary slightly depending on the Center’s wellness activities.
Note about the program flow: Renee is very conscious about creating a nourishing retreat experience that balances “being” and “doing” and may modify the program and schedule to meet the group’s mood and needs. She has been facilitating retreats for 25 years and has learned the art/science of marrying form and flow in the retreat environment!
