there is no better time…

than this November, to gather with people who get it.

Whether you are a care professional in a traditional setting, doing your own thing or juggling both— like us, you may experience challenges (both personal and professional), have big dreams to fulfill and outside of the box ideas you’d love to explore.

Don’t do this alone. We are much better together.

We are so excited for this private retreat nestled in the woods away from technology, responsibilities and external pressure. Come remind yourself what it feels like to be on purpose and on path.

So excited! Can’t wait to share space with you lovely ladies.

Lynne Newman is the founder of Gray Mothering where she helps soulful women navigate adversity— in motherhood and life. After going through her own struggles, including dealing with fertility, loss and cancer, she learned first hand, the depth and meaning of self-compassion. She's an inspiring speaker, author and holistic occupational therapist who loves to facilitate transformation. Her ultimate wish is that every person (small or grown) listen and trust their intuition.  

In the Circle, we are all equal. There is no one in front of you and there’s nobody behind you. No one is above you; no one is below you. The Circle is Sacred because it is designed to create Unity.
