I really treasured everything about this experience more than I ever imagined. I will definitely recommend this program -- J
I felt such a sense of renewal after the retreat. The facilitators were fantastic. Felt like you kept things safe and compassionate for everyone. Really appreciate all the details and planning. - S
Location was perfect, liked the variety too. It was awesome to walk about in two cities using my cane skills with other blind women. Made me feel like a warrior at times! The food was amazing -- K
My life is forever changed by both the learning and understanding I gained through this program as well as the sisterhood developed with the other women. I now know I am not alone. Ann
I now can talk about my arenas in life and where I want to show up and live brave with a beautiful group of women in my cheering section. R
I still have my rock from the hike that reminds me I did it with my daring sisters. Jessica
