WomenRest: Retreats for Moms
“Telling a story, especially about ourselves, may be one of the most personal and intimate things we can do. Through storytelling we can come to know who we are in the new and unforeseen ways. We can also reveal to others what is deepest in our hearts, in the process, building bridges.”
– Rick Stone, The Healing Art of Storytelling
WomenRest is a chance for CCBS moms to gather in a small, safe setting to explore what is deeply working in their hearts… to walk the path of courage, love, truth and wisdom. And it is also designed to laugh, play, dream, release, inquire and simply enjoy the company of other “warrior” women. Lifelong friends are made and several retreat groups are still gathering post-graduation to support, share and refresh friendships! Held several times a year, these gatherings of women are powerful opportunities for connection and healing.
“The most important thing that I realized was that the ‘important stranger’ we talked about was ME! After the WomenRest retreat, I found myself again.”
– Karen, Miami
“The women’s retreat was the first time I met other women who really understood the pain I was in and could share my story without blame or judgement. The security and acceptance of this group provided me the foundation to heal and deal with the new path ahead.”
– Ann, Dallas
