The Women’s Retreat is a unique forum for learning about and exploring sexuality, differentiation, and personal development. Take a fresh look at femininity, leadership, women’s eroticism, and the conflicting roles facing today’s women. This retreat builds on the powerful energy, self -challenge, and camaraderie that can occur when women gather together in shared interest of personal growth. This retreat, with its emphasis on differentiation, is designed to meet the interests of women at different stages in their life, with varied backgrounds, issues and goals. This workshop is a psycho-educational experience and not psychotherapy.

The Women’s Retreat is for you if you are:

  • Caught up in family, work or a relationship and need a weekend away to get reacquainted with yourself;
  • Going through a life transition and want to use it as an opportunity for personal growth;
  • At a plateau or feeling stuck in your life, and it's time for new ideas about women's sexuality, women's roles and your options;
  • A sexual abuse survivor who is ready to embrace a healthier and more robust sexuality;
  • A mental health professional who wants to explore your personal development in order to help yourself and your clients; (This program is open to the general public, and everyone attends as a civilian.)

Enjoy the Excitement of Carbondale, Colorado in the Fall!

Who Will Be There: Differentiation is about diversity and the Women’s Retreat is for different kinds of women –women who are single, married, widowed or separate or divorced. Women of all sexual orientations, women struggling to develop a solid sense of self while maintaining important relationships, whether fresh with new adulthood, 30 to 45 or something, or maturing into the wisdom of later adulthood. The participants may include busy executives and full-time homemakers. This divergence of women can generate powerful momentum and an ambiance of understanding, compassion, and shared wisdom.

What You Will Learn: Discover how the process of differentiation is a route to enhancing emotional and sexual intimacy. Learn tools that help you develop a more solid sense of self while becoming more effective in relationships with friends, family and co-workers. Develop greater openness and comfort in discussing sexuality and exploring your sexual potential.
