A Retreat for women of all ages to discover the “real” woman within
Participants will hear the story of Ruby, an enslaved young woman who recognized her
real self despite the label of slave and the conditions under which she was forced to live.
Participants answer the question: What greater things am I to express in my life?
Participants examine the messages and disempowering beliefs that have prevented them
from living up to their full potential, develop a new set of beliefs, and strategies for
choosing to live their true destiny.
