  • DEEP REST | A Day Retreat for Women

    The need for women to develop strategies to avoid burn-out has never been greater than in the post-pandemic era. But how to rest, and defining what rest even is, can be just the beginning of the obstacles that prevent women from taking care of themselves.  

    A Day of Slowing Down, Yoga, Contemplation & Community

    Historic Chautauqua, Boulder CO

    Sunday September 25, 2022


    Deep Rest offers dedicated time to help women develop a realistic and practical self-care practice. You will learn about the female relationship with rest, productivity, and self-prioritization. We will explore ways to deal with obstacles like guilt, anxiety, and pleasing which prevent self-care for so many women. Come prepared to participate in large and small group sharing, journaling, connection with like-minded women, and time in nature for self-reflection. A nourishing yoga class and a catered lunch by Chautauqua dining is included.



    What women who attended the Summer 2022 retreat are saying:

    The day exceeded my expectations. I feel more grounded and tapped into issues I never gave much thought to before. The flow was great, just the right mix of chatting & sharing, listening, food, yoga, and restful breaks.” – J.V.
