We are so excited to be gearing up for the 2019 online retreat: Laughing Well. Mystie Winckler, Brandy Vencel, Pam Barnhill, and Cindy Rollins will be getting together on the California Central Coast to broadcast live with encouragement and delight for you at home.

To participate in this retreat you don’t need to leave home, much less travel. There will be chat box discussions so you can still experience community and know you have like-minded companions out there.

But, of course, real-life, in-person community is better. That’s why we’re super excited for the groups hosting local retreats: women gathering for the day to watch the sessions together, discuss between sessions, eat and laugh and maybe even cry together as they take a day away to renew their minds and hearts for the school year ahead.

Groups of 6 or more meeting together get a group rate of $20/attendee; the group leader should register ASAP and follow the instructions sent out after purchase. More information on the logistics of running a local group are available here.

But maybe there’s a group you can meet up with that’s already in your area. Below is a listing of the local events that are open to accepting another participant or two. If you’d like more information, leave a comment and we’ll send your info to the group leader who will contact you.

Do you have a local group gathering for the retreat and you’d like to be listed? Leave a comment or email us and we’ll add you.

Are you interested in hosting some friends or broader local community for the retreat? It’s not too late! Leader packets are available with everything you need to make it a wonderful day away (or day at your home). As the hostess, simply register for the retreat (yes, at full price), then follow the instructions in the Welcome email for being a group leader. When we invoice for your event (after your event), your registration fee will be credited to your invoice (so it’s like a deposit).
