So much has changed since November 8, but one thing remains the same: the heartfelt connections with the women at the fifth annual 3rd Act Women’s Retreat and the widening circle of powerful and purposeful 3rd Act graduates.
The retreat was held at our spiritual home Bishop’s Ranch over the Halloween weekend. Here in Northern California the weather was dark and stormy so there was not much time in the beautiful outdoors. Instead, we spent our days and nights in front of the warm fire stoked by our women, literally and figuratively, and in the art room letting the muses speak.
Ellie and I, feeling the unique pulse of this particular group of women, added several new exercises that helped to deepen and expand their 3rd Act reflections.
We continue to be amazed and inspired by the Vision Statements that our participants create. We know that we have helped make the world a better place by creating an environment that encourages each participant to delve deep and listen intently for what their life is calling forth at this stage.
