Why attend a retreat specifically for visually impaired women? At times when facing vision loss, many women may feel isolated because they often don't know anyone who shares their unique challenges. This retreat is an opportunity to connect and share stories with other women experiencing vision loss. You will also leave with empowering tools and new insight through experiential activities. This retreat is an experience to truly own and celebrate who you are and your story. Becky Andrews, LCMHC, who is blind from Retinitis Pigmentosa and Lisa Bradford, LCSW will lead you on an amazing journey of connection, learning, growth, adventure and laughter. What attendees said about the 2016/2017/2018 retreat: “I really treasured everything about this experience more than I ever imagined. I will definitely recommend this program!” – J “I felt such a sense of renewal after the retreat. The facilitators were fantastic. Felt like you kept things safe and compassionate for everyone. Really appreciate all the details and planning.” –S
"I left empowered to show up in ways I hadn't believed I could. I now feel like I have a group of women - friends - who understand me that I can stay in touch with and will help me implement what I learned." “Location was perfect, liked the variety too. It was awesome to walk about in two cities using my cane skills with visually impaired ladies. Made me feel like a warrior at times! The food was amazing!” – K “I learned a lot from the curriculum. It helped me understand myself better. I can now talk about being in the arena of life and really living wholeheartedly.” –M
