Join me for a wonderful Women’s Wisdom Retreat at Villa Pipistrelli

Summer of 2022 seems a long way off, but it’s just the right amount of time to prepare yourself for this adventure.  In the coming months I’ll be sending out information and resources to enrich your journey, whether you attend in person, or in your dreams.

We’ll gather: I will schedule in-person and/or virtual meetings that will allow us to get to know each other prior to the retreat, including an Italian dinner at La Grolla in St Paul. (http://www.lagrollastpaul.com/)

Early Registration will begin June 2021 
First Deposit will be due July 1, 2021
