Friends Who Are Going
Event description



We’re super human, right?? Leaping small children in a single bound? More powerful than a super-sized double espresso? Always pushing ourselves to give our utmost to family and jobs, but rarely giving ourselves the attention we deserve.

The 1st Annual GLOW Festival is a chance for women of all ages and backgrounds to have some fun, pampering, and a bit of learning about what makes us tick! Bring your girlfriends, sisters, mom, and yourself and choose from a variety of activities including motivational speakers, massage, art therapy, vendor goodies, and more. Lunch and complimentary wine tasting included!

We are also thrilled to announce this year’s keynote speaker, Elena Sonnino! Elena is a Martha Beck Certified life coach, RYT 200 yoga teacher, cancer survivor, and mom. Her primary focus is to help guide radiant women to find clarity and create the life they really want … to embrace their inner shine. Find out more at ElenaSonnino.com.Keynote Speaker Elena Sonnino

What is normal? How can someone get help when things are not going well, and what help is available? Barbara M. Kirkland, Certified Nurse-Midwife who has practiced in the Shenandoah Valley for the past 30 years, addresses these questions and more.
