Event description

Description

As each year comes to a close, we invite our community to a retreat in the San Francisco Bay Area for a weekend of workshops, connection, learning, and rejuvenation. This is an opportunity to connect with other women who are passionate about creating change and learning how to best put their passions into action.

YWSE-SF is proud to announce this year's retreat theme: "Conscious Community Now: Social Change in a Turbulent Climate", with a focus on supporting each woman to clarify her authentic life purpose, and allowing that purpose to fuel community building as a means to make social impact. While not overtly political, this theme conjures the image of what's needed during this politically charged time. It will allow us to showcase those among us who are working within their own communities, which is the heart of social enterprise.

In her book, "The Top Five Regrets of the Dying", end-of-life caregiver Bronnie Ware identifies the top regret of her patients as "I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me". But how does one identify what living a true, authentic life looks like? And how does one channel authenticity into a purposeful life that benefits not just one individual, but the surrounding community and society as a whole?

The purpose of the YWSE-SF 2019 Retreat is to bring together women who are working toward positive change in the world around us, through entrepreneurship and in our work, to collaborate, learn, and build a supportive community together.
