What Our Over-50 Retreat Is About
We are an intimate gathering of women 50 (or so) from all over the country; an escape with like-minded women to a getaway in a lodge all to ourselves in the Catskills, with workshops, networking, guided-discussion evening salons, 95 acres of pristine woodlands with 3 walking paths, a labyrinth, a gazebo, and a powerful series of mastermind sessions that just might change your life.
What Happens At Our Retreat
After our Welcome Party on our first night, we'll get down to work first thing next morning with a thought-provoking workshop from an expert in her field. After a generous break for lunch, we'll again convene for an in-depth afternoon workshop. After another break for a walk, a rest, a nap - whatever you want - we'll gather downstairs around the fire in the cozy in Cedar Heart Lodge for a wine & cheese Evening Salon and some lively discussion on a surprise topic of the day. (Don't worry; politics is off the table.) From there we'll move to our evening meal in the dining room - a hearty and healthy, locally sourced dinner prepared for us by our wonderful resident chef.
The next day will follow the same schedule, and then on our final day, we'll take the morning and the afternoon to go deep into our Mastermind Sessions - the heart and soul of the Women At Woodstock experience. During these sessions, each of us will have her turn to share her problem, dream, challenge, or goal, and receive the collective intelligence, compassion, and creativity of the group who will help shape a new view and a strategy to tackle the issue or idea, whatever it is.
Two weeks after our retreat has ended, you'll receive an invitation to receive a series of emails over a two-week period with inspirational thoughts or challenges from The Metamorph Project, a progressive guided process of changing your thoughts in order to change what you think about yourself, and therefore about your life's possibilities. This project has been developed out of what we've learned over the past decade of hosting Women At Woodstock and we hope this taste of The Metamorph Project will help extend the experience you just had at Lifebridge Sanctuary.
