It's one hour, once a week for you to focus on you.
Random Retreat is 60 minutes of thought-provoking, creativity-sparking, energy-restoring time spent amongst other fabulous women. It's an appointment with yourself to dream and scheme and open to new possibilities. An opportunity to have a whole, uninterrupted thought without the distractions of children and the demands of home. It’s a pause in the schedule, a chance to replenish yourself so that you have more to give. It's a space to relax, rejuvenate, and reconnect with who you were before children and who you hope to be now. It's a place to learn new things, rediscover passions, define goals. Is it right for you? You must come to find out. Come!
Every week is different, but we guarantee that you'll be glad you came. We're focused less on making your life (particularly your life as a mom) easier/better/more efficient and more on providing an outlet for exploring new ideas, reclaiming yourself, and connecting with each other. Some weeks we have guest speakers (see a list of our past ones here), some weeks are led by us (Stephanie Hinkaty and Alison Marra, pictured below with author Patty Chang Anker in the pink dress).
Join us every Friday morning, 9:30-10:30 (with time to linger afterwards if you'd like). Our next gathering will be announced soon! Join our mailing list to learn more -- email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: Since we want you to focus on you, we very respectfully ask you to leave little ones at home (but precrawling babies are welcome).
Fee: $10 per week (payable in person), including coffee and tea. We'll resume the seasonal subscription rate in the new year.
