We are excited to offer this unique, transformational retreat for women actively engaged in creating a just and sustainable world: leaders from non-profits, socially responsible businesses, artist-activists, community organizers, educators, philanthropists, women in government and others.

Powerful leadership arises from the synergy of our inner awareness and personal mastery with critical leadership skills to create effective results in service of our goals. Our time will be spent in three primary areas, each important to developing leadership capacity that is sustainable for a lifetime of service:

Leadership training

  • Clarifying your purpose & vision
  • Developing mental clarity & emotional stability
  • Coaching, mentoring and communication skills to bring
    out the best in others
  • Cultivating the power of your intuition
  • Deepening into the power of your voice and body for fully
    integrated leadership
  • Personal Ecology – creating a balanced and sustainable life

Networking & peer learning

Drawing on the great wealth of wisdom and experience of participants, we will explore the unique gifts and challenges we share as women, as we continue to cultivate our global network.

Inner reflection and integration

Time for you to restore in the beauty of the natural world. Write, read, hike, swim, relax, make new friends, gaze at the sea…

Enjoy time for optional activities including: yoga and meditation (no extra charge), whale watching, visit local market, sweat lodge ceremony and massage & meditation spa treatments.

“Women, Spirit and Power was a powerful experience, a chance to blend skills training and connection to an amazing community of leaders and teachers and now great friends. We left relaxed, reinvigorated by the beautiful resort and totally inspired for our journey ahead. I’m so glad I was there!”
-Emma Ruby-Sachs, Deputy Director of Avaaz. Read more testimonials here.
