I just got home a few hours ago from a phenomenal UU Women's Retreat. I can honestly say I loved everything I can think of about it!
My roommates were so super awesome. I had gone with just one friend, but left with several more. They welcomed me with open arms, and it felt wonderful. We laid in our bunks talking and giggling like teenagers til 2:00 AM. I was myself, so much more than a wife and mother, but still those as well. The connections were wonderful.
Some of the highlights for me were the drumming and singing. We got lots of that in during large group activities and evening entertainment, but one of my workshops was also Singing in a Sacred Circle with Shelley Graff. I hope I have the opportunity to participate with something like this again - it was powerful and positive and I've come away feeling great!
