The next Women’s Retreat is in October 2017. There are only ten spots available and registrations are accepted based on availability.
The Women’s retreat provides experiential learning in a safe, serene, supportive and natural environment. Guests are free to be themselves, are heard and understood and are supported and encouraged in beautiful surroundings.
The Women’s Retreat is set in the majestic Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Guests stay in a rustic yet comfortably appointed cabin at Snow Mountain Ranch. We are up in the mountains, at 9000′ elevation, so if being at altitude is a concern please contact us.
All sessions will be held in the great room of the cabin with endless views of the surrounding mountains and meadows. The atmosphere itself is peaceful and healing.
Meals and lodging
All meals will be provided in the large communal kitchen and dining spaces or in the on-site dining hall.
There will be up to two guests per room. Rooms are large, comfortable and equipped with two queen beds.
There is plenty of time for sharing stories, getting to know one another and socializing as well as time solitude, relaxation and reflection. And of course there is time for the sessions as well!
Women’s Retreat Sessions
There will also be a bit of adventure for those who are up for it and want to participate. All activities will be modifiable and wheelchair accessible.
Please note that there is also no need to attend all sessions. The retreat is for you. If you want quiet time away from the group or need a few moments to lie down and rest, your room is always just steps away. Or you can venture out onto the endless acres of ranch property to just breathe and be, explore and discover.
Friday: Check in at Snow Mountain Ranch begins at 3:00pm on Friday. Our first, very informal session will start around 4:30 and dinner will be served by 6:30pm.
Saturday: A full day of sessions, strategies, socializing, family style meals, rest and reflection.
Sunday: One last session after breakfast and checkout at 10:00am. There will be an optional hike (or other activity, weather dependent) at 10am and an optional lunch in town at noon for anyone that wants to hang out a bit more before heading home.
The cost of the retreat is only $499, thanks to our donors (a savings of $250!). The price includes two nights accommodation in the cabin at the ranch; all meals, activities, and sessions; and lifelong access to the EPIc online community, support and resources.
There are also fundraising opportunities that help us out a great deal! We have a Crowdrise fundraising page set up for anyone who would like to raise money to cover their costs. Setting up a fundraiser is easy (the ‘create a fundraiser’ button is in the lower right hand corner) and we can help with any questions you may have.
