Most of us have done the leg-work to see a retirement planner, and pulled together tons of information and answered a battery of questions about what we want our post-retirement life to look like, financially…So why not engage in a similar level of guidance and effort and preparation for retirement? And to do it within a circle of fellow travelers and witnesses, it is a beautiful gift. The chance to evaluate what ;s really essential, who we really are, what we truly have to offer this world when we come from a place of wisdom and confidence and freedom to BE ourselves. And to see this reflected back to us from the facilitators, and all the amazing women in the circle. The weekend was a wake up call that I am sure I will look back on with gratitude in the years to come. J, NC
The workshop was a loving, intimate and spirit-filled container for exploration, sharing, healing, and celebration. We were guided in a new way to understand our lives, past, present and future. For me, there may be nothing more powerful and vital than women getting together. I made friends there who are now a part of me. I felt totally seen, honored, supported and celebrated in this safe and gorgeous space. What added to the experience was the amazing food, the music and dancing, and the little breaks to relax and refresh between the creatively planned activities…I would do this workshop again and/or a follow up to it in a heartbeat and I think that each time would be a new experience, because I would be at a different place in my life’s journey.

What a fabulous time to sit in the sacred space of women, where we could share, be vulnerable, and be held by each other. Leslie and Sandy are amazing and gifted facilitators bringing the very best of their consummate facilitation and design skills to us on a journey that they experience as we do. They are a magical team together, and clearly took great care and attention to make this a powerful growth experience. You created an environment where we could love and care for each other and hold each other’s pain and joy. I hope other women have the opportunity to experience the retreat as they navigate the cross roads and transitions in women’s lives, relationships and search for new ways of being in the world. Thank you both for leveraging your wisdom, and your facilitation superpowers to create a powerful, rewiring experience for us. K. Manassas
I came to this retreat shortly after articulating an intention to use the next few years to plan for my next phase in life. I had thought about and planned for financial means, but I needed space and time to focus on what I wanted for myself. These three days of love, compassion, and support guided me through a process of stepping back to look at my past and what I can now let go of; looking at who I am beyond the many roles I played and continue to play in life; and formulating a vision for myself going forward which is bringing me unexpected joy, excitement and optimism. I left the three days with much greater clarity about my future and confidence in being able to make my new vision come to beautiful life. N. Silver Spring.
Leslie and Sandy and the Rewiring retreat they created is Amazing! I am certain my friendship with the two of them intensified my positive experience. However, their grace, love for women's success and excellent design expertise was more than evident in the weekend workshop. Consequently, the retreat was a life changing program, and it will always be a memorable experience. From the welcoming, exercises; group sharing of values and beliefs, letting go of old messages in our minds that impact our perspective and rebuilding our self-worth and life vision - I was able to rid old emotions, received tools for dealing with the emotions that may resurface, regain strength, and define a new chapter. I feel Queenly. I am rewired, and the next chapter in my life is too!. T, Minneapolis The rewiring retreat served me in a number of wonderful ways. I was able to identify thoughts and behaviors that were no longer serving me, and tools to help me put them in the past. I found inspiration and hope for my future. I realized I'm more than just what I can do for others, and I now look forward to building a life that is abundant for me, and not just for those who depend on me. As a woman in my early 50's, I also was inspired by being with women who were closer to retiring or had retired; everyone was so vibrant, fun, and full of life! It gave me hope for how I can be in my 60's. After having been home so long during COVID, this retreat reminded me how rejuvenating it is to talk and celebrate with others, to get to know new people, and to enjoy life. And the food and beautiful setting made it all feel like a mini- vacation. I am so glad I went and enthusiastically encourage others to attend. I feel much more centered now and ready to take on the future. Jennifer Copeland
When I saw the notice about this opportunity... it sounded like just what I needed. Now that I look back on the experience, I know I was right. It may not happen overnight, but I have a new plan and one that I would not have been able to arrive at anywhere else. The combination of passion, hope, and expertise coupled with a grounding in reality made it all work. Being surrounded by women in similar and different places was both comforting and enlightening. Plus, the dance parties pushed it over the top! S, Alexandria
Leslie and Sandy brought creativity, warmth and depth to a variety of interactive exercises that reinforced our inner knowledge. The safe haven we co-created enabled profound connection with our values, as well as fun! My overwhelming insight was the sense of belonging, sharing a quest with women I respect, honor and adore. The welcome and entry ritual cleansing that Sandy and Leslie greeted each of us with in turn was potent, thank you. The human design exercise that relies on grounded body wisdom, free from frontal lobe interference, was challenging at first and yielded a few revelations. It’s one I can do on my own to inform decisions. D, DC
