Celebrating sisterhood at Hope Springs Institute near Peebles Ohio, just over an hour from the church. Explore what is sacred and divine while building trust and intimacy with your heritage sisters!
Plenty of free time this year!
If you identify yourself as an adult women of Heritage UU Church, we would love to have you join us to celebrate life, friendship, and sisterhood. Let’s take time to nurture our spiritual selves, our friendships, and our bond as women. Come together for spiritual workshops, discussion groups, crafts, or take time to rejuvenate yourself with a long hike or a good book! No matter what your needs are, there will be something for everyone. Workshops and groups are flexible so do what meets your needs. Shelley Graff will join us again this year to lead Singing in Sacred Circle. After great thought and discussion, the Heritage Women’s group has decided to alternate every year between an adult-only retreat and a retreat including breastfeeding mothers. This is the year that is designated for females over the age of 18.
Just $260 for the entire weekend from 1:00 p.m. Friday (dinner begins at 6:30) to 4:00 p.m. Sunday (lunch concludes at 2:00 p.m.).
