There is something extremely powerful about participating in a workshop or retreat as part of a group. We have found that spending time in a structured setting with other women who experience similar thoughts, experiences, and feelings, helps us to feel reassured that we’re not alone – or inadequate – or just plain crazy. It also feels more courageous and committed because we must “put ourselves out there” – and let our real self be seen. The results are quite powerful given the brief amount of time we share together.
