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 secluded eco-friendly lodge nestled in the Catskills just outside of Woodstock, NY for workshops, walks, networking, wine, fabulous food, lots of delicious downtime, and a powerful series of mastermind sessions that just might change your life.
What Happens At Our Retreat
After our welcome party and dinner on our first night, we'll get down to work first thing next morning right after breakfast 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 some delicious downtime, we'll gather in Cedar Heart Lodge on the ground floor of our lodge for a wine and cheese evening salon and some lively discussion on a surprise topic of the day. (Don't worry; politics is off the table.) Then we'll gather for a communal dinner in our dining room, after which everyone is welcome to stick around for more wine and/or chocolates, or retire for reading, contemplation, or sleep.
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.
If you're an early morning riser, you have lots of bracing and rejuvenating options to start your day: a hike through the woods on any of the three trails that weave through the woods around our lodge, a slow walk through the labyrinth in the meadow, a time of contemplation in the gazebo on the top of the hill, or a silent meditation or self-directed yoga session in the great room on the third floor of the lodge. Or, let's be honest - if you just want to sleep all the way until breakfast, more power to you. Start your day in whatever way pleases you!
All meals, snacks and beverages - including wine - are included in your registration fee. Once you arrive, you are free to do what you wish and all your needs will be taken care of.
