The Caravan Express: Women’s Retreat

68676395_10215189225664078_4835563993345032192_n
The Caravan Express is a retreat for women that runs this weekend at the Fresh Idea Farm in Red Rock, NY. The retreats goal is “uncovering your essence, experience its power, and take action.”

The retreat, conducted in a bucolic garden setting, will include Meditation, yoga, the labyrinth, writing & vision mapping.

From the hosts:

Why a Caravan you might be asking?

Because we want to present you with a rare opportunity to travel with a group of like-minded seekers to unknown and unexpected places that already reside right within you.

Our intention is to give you the time and space to dig deep and share with all of us what you already possess – sometimes known but often hidden.

And how will we do this?

By taking you through processes that have the potential to lead to dynamic transformations in the areas you personally wish to explore.

This weekend is designed to build from the essentials, in realms of yoga, meditation, and contemplation, to labyrinth walking on Day One, with the purpose of bridging internal and external spheres.

Our Caravan Mart is a unique vehicle that will allow us to reveal the gifts we already recognize and are ready to share with one another.

How you expand your new insights and begin to take action will happen on Day Two with a dynamic vision mapping session and the inaugural “Express Yourself ” workshop.

It is our hope that fellow Caravaners will depart with their magnificent presence

enlightened and emboldened and that they will also know they always have a sacred touchstone to return to – The Caravan Express.

JOIN US – Your place is waiting!

Betty – Sheila – Chris – Janet
