Come as you are... Be who you want to be.
Like-minded women from all over the United States come to find the group of friends they've always longed for; smart, supportive, open-minded, kind, reaching for all that life has to offer, determined to pursue their dreams.

I mentioned many months ago that one of my short stories is going to be published in the literary journal, The Noyo River Review. Well, the time has come; the upcoming edition will be out next week, celebrated with a book launch party on Sunday, May 19 in beautiful Mendocino, California right on the coast![…]
by Brenda Rush It began as a feeling, a soft wordless whisper that grew into an insistent urging. Finally, a relentless nudge propelled me. I began searching online for answers to a question for which I only had a few words. Over time, those keywords took me to retreat sites. Unfortunately, most retreats have only[…]
Sheree Clark tricked me into talking about my laundry – not my dirty laundry, mind you; in fact it was my very clean laundry… but it was an odd moment in our recent phone conversation, which incidentally also happened to be a recorded interview for her upcoming podcast series, It’s YOUR Time: Turning the Midlife Crisis into[…]
Do you have an ex story? Most of us do. And chances are, you’ve told it over and over again. But are you satisfied? Probably not. Somehow, that story lives on in you and, though you may not think of it often, it can click into “play” at the oddest moments. It won’t go away, because something[…]

Ogden Kruger has been practicing Kundalini Yoga since 1983 and teaching it for the past ten years. We’re very pleased that she will be leading our end-of-day yoga sessions at Women At Woodstock this year! Each session will involve a practice of Morning Sadhana, very simple exercises to energize the spine, wake the body up[…]
That’s what Tony Robbins says, and it makes perfect sense. He was talking in this case about rich people. Author of MONEY: Master The Game, he said in an interview that the wealthiest, most successful people tend to hang out with wealthy, successful people. Before you say, “Duh,” think about what you’re really saying when you say[…]
A couple of weeks ago, I sent an email to all of last year’s Women At Woodstock attendees. In the email, I filled them in on what I’d learned from the survey I’d asked them to complete at the end of October; the workshops they liked most; things that maybe fell a bit short of expectations;[…]
Sheree Clark calls her coaching practice for women Fork in the Road, which she founded after finding herself at that proverbial Y intersection in 2009. After trying on many different titles, she settled on Midlife Courage Coach, because she helps women in midlife to connect into the courage it takes to make the changes in[…]
