Frequently Asked Questions

 
 
 
 

Q

Is the Workshop Weekend Retreat strictly for women over 50?

 

A

Not exactly! The Workshop Retreat is open to women of any age, but we focus on issues of importance to women over 50, so most of our attendees are 50 (or so) or older. Workshop topics range all over the map, from nutrition and fitness, to technology, to relationship healing, to entrepreneurship, and on and on... so if our workshops are of interest to you, you're more than welcome to attend, regardless of your age. We usually have one or two women in their 30s, a handful in their 40s, and the rest 50 and above. We don't card at the door! 

 
 
 
 

Q

What about the Writers Retreat? Is that for women over 50?

 

A

No, the Writers Retreat is for women of any age. And we welcome writers of all genres and all levels - our gatherings always include both aspiring writers and published authors, and we all come together to learn from both our writing coaches and from one another.

 
 
 
 

Q

Are the retreats handicapped accessible? I see stairs in some of the photos!

 

A

Lifebridge Sanctuary, where we hold our retreats, is indeed handicapped accessible. There is access to all floors via ramps. However, please be aware that these ramps are outdoors, so at nighttime you will need to use a flashlight. And, from the dining room to the Main Lodge bedrooms, you will need to traverse a dirt-and-gravel drive between ramps. Please be aware of the challenges you may face. If you need to use a cane to walk, we strongly urge you to bring a walker to use during your stay. Also see our discussion about the Garden House, below. 

 
 
 
 

Q

What's the Garden House? Is it on the same property as the Main Lodge?

 

A

The Garden House is a separate building a short walk up an elevated dirt-and-gravel pathway from the Main Lodge. It includes two floors of bedrooms and a small kitchenette with sink and coffee maker. Please note, if you book a bedroom in the Garden House, you will need to be able to traverse the pathway without assistance, and note there is no handrail. OR, if you have a car, you can drive from the lower parking area up a short road to the Garden House parking area. 

 
 
 
 

Q

Is Women At Woodstock only for single women?

 

A

Not at all. We have both single and married women at our retreats. Usually it's pretty evenly mixed.
