Virtual Adventure Retreat for Women

August & September 2020 with . . .


The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking
new landscapes but in having new eyes.
~ Marcel Proust


What a year 2020 has been and it’s only half over.  We’re all experiencing this year in our own way ~ feeling anxious, frustrated, on edge, angry, isolated ~ and for those adventuresome women who are desperate to get out of town . . . for a road trip, for time on a beach, for a walk in the mountains, for international exploration, we feel your loss!

The Sedona Women’s Institute has had to make difficult decisions in the past months to cancel our in-person and travel retreats for 2020 and 2021 and maybe even beyond.  And because we believe that these adventure retreats are what keep many of us motivated, connected, grounded and inspired, we know the need is higher now than ever.

SO if you’re feeling like us and you need an adventure experience to feed your mind, body and spirit, then we have a gift for you!

All the inspiration, community, and insights
of a Sedona Women’s Institute’s retreat . . .
from the comfort of your own home.

JOIN ME and a global crew of some of the most diverse, interesting, passionate women I know for a 5-day adventure from the inside out . . . from wherever you are in the world.  Click here for information on the facilitators.

Each of our facilitators have the passion, experience and tools to enrich your life in this time of stillness and isolation.  And you can enjoy each of these women’s sessions regardless of where you are in the world, or whatever your current schedule might be.  You’ll be able to download each session on your own time and watch it in your own way.  We’ll also create a private Facebook group to create community and share insights from our time together.

Our adventure retreat will be held on four consecutive Saturdays:  August 22, August 29, September 5 and September 12.  Each session has the capacity to send you into the fall and winter with a skip in your step and a smile on your face.  And we want that for all of you!


One’s destination is never a place
but a new way of seeing things.
~ Henry Miller







If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine.  It’s lethal.
~ Paulo Coelho
