Event description


A Weekend of Self-Care, Empowerment and Positive Transformation

Do you long to reconnect with your authentic self? Do you crave time to de-stress, rest, cultivate inner peace, and renew your soul?

Dragonfly Healing Center provides a safe and nourishing environment in which women can deeply explore what it means to come into balance in their lives - emotionally, spiritually, mentally, and physically. It is designed especially for women who are and wish to be active and empowered participants in their whole health and well-being.

Through inspiring discussions, guided meditations, hiking, journaling, yoga, and creative expression, we foster an intimate community for healing, integration, and awakening. Connect deeper with your self care by relaxing into the loving healing hands of your wellness service providers. Experience Massage Therapy and other wellness services as an option during your retreat.

Throughout the weekend, you will be led on a journey of new perceptions, towards a whole new way to view your life and experience how the elusive sense of safety, security, and love which you are seeking is not somewhere out there but all within you.

Join us on this journey towards self-discovery...
