About the weekend:
What will I get from this experience?
We cannot say exactly what you will get because every woman receives something different for herself. However here are a few things that other women have shared:
- Clarity around who you are and what you want out of life;
- Trust in yourself;
- Deeper connection to joy and living in the present moment;
- The expression and release of painful emotions;
- Strong connection to, and sense of trust in, other women;
- Renewed energy in life.
How will I know if this is right for me?

Is it possible to pay a reduced rate?
Yes. You have three options for paying a reduced rate. Women can request financial assistance from Circles of Women. For more info >
