The Way of the Happy Woman® Seasonal, Self-Care Mini-Retreats
You give, you work, you sacrifice. But are you brave enough to put yourself at the top of your priority list?
Calling all women who do too much!
Self-care isn’t selfish. It’s a revolutionary act. A feminine road back to yourself. And it changes everything.
You already know this is true. But sometimes, we need a reminder. A skilled guide back to our own inner wisdom. A sacred pause from life’s endless To Do’s … so we can return to our deepest, truest vitality.
This self-care mini-retreat is lovingly designed to help busy women harness the healing power of ancient feminine wisdom within their modern lives … so you can reclaim the lasting harmony and happiness that’s your birthright.
Whether you’re running your own business or raising a family (or both), you’ll discover how to live a meaningful, authentic life, the feminine way: guided from within.
Based on Sara Avant Stover’s bestselling book, The Way of the Happy Woman, this mini-retreat will show you how to live gracefully amidst the ever-changing world around you. It will be soulful and down-to-earth, inspiring and practical.
“When a woman is relaxed and rested, she is the most resourceful, receptive, creative,
and in tune with her Feminine Soul.” ~ Sara Avant Stover
The Way of the Happy Woman® Yoga, Meditation & Life Balance Mini-Retreats are gatherings for women to reconnect with themselves and each other.
Here, you will reconnect to your innate feminine wisdom and use this powerful, vital clarity to guide your busy life from now on.

Your life is busy and full—of work, play, relationships, and more! And even if it’s all fulfilling, you crave some alone time with yourself.
You have to fill your own well before you can truly serve others. Retreat time is needed to truly come home to your authentic self.
