Mama Bear Retreats

— Family Support —

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 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

The Cherokee Creek WomenRest Retreats / Mama Bear Retreats are held several times a year. The retreats offer a place for CCBS moms to gather in a small, safe setting to explore what is in their hearts … and, to walk the path of courage, love, truth and wisdom.

The retreat is also designed for you to laugh, play, dream, release, inquire and simply enjoy the company of other Warrior Women. Many moms who have attended share that they have found lifelong friends, and several retreat groups are still gathering post-graduation to support, share and refresh friendships!

A Message from Cherokee Creek Mama Bears

Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one.’

– C.S. Lewis

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

A retreat has a specific intent behind it — it’s about you escaping your every day routine, awakening your soul, bonding with like-minded women, and finding perspective.

– Shani Jay

Everyone needs a place to retreat; a spot where the world grows quiet enough for the soul to speak.

– Angie Weiland-Crosby

Behind every successful woman is a tribe of other women who have her back.
