This unique, all inclusive, over-night retreat was developed by Serene Serendipity's founder, Sharon MacGregor. She believes that in a time of economic uncertainty and global turmoil, it is important for people to invest in their mental, spiritual and physical health and well being. She is not alone in this observation, Suzanne Buckley, Director of Mercy Center in California, agrees, "Reactions of fear, anxiety and panic are so painful that they can be impossible to overcome while knee deep in circumstances"
The Getting Into Your Own Groove - Women's Retreat will provide a vacation adventure, similar to that of Elizabeth Gilbert's journey, documented in her best seller, Eat Pray Love, at an affordable cost in both time and money. Four Star, local boutique hotel, The Siena, with it Tuscan inspired decor, will provide the destination atmosphere of the retreat. The Love aspect of the program, is covered by a two-part, inner-exploration and skills development workshop, with certified professional co-active life coach, Olga Santo Tomas Monroe. The Pray will happen with yoga and meditation, taught by Cindy Glass, certified Bikram Yoga Teacher and owner of Bikram Yoga Raleigh. Cindy studied with Indian guru, Bikram Choudhury. The EAT aspect is introduced through the exploration and connection with the community, with a walking food tour, through Carborro/Chapel Hill, with Taste Carolina Gourmet Food Tours, co-owner, Lesley Stracks-Mullem.
Sharon MacGregor, intends to provide women with a safe place to share and grow. This retreat promises that attendees will leave having discovered and reconnected with their passion; with useful tool to enable them to incorporate life-renewal strategies into their daily lives; and renewed confidence to live an authentic life filled with hope.
