Running With Scissors presents: the 2017 Women’s Retreat!

Once upon a time…  it’s how all of our stories begin right?!  Childhoods ripe with imagination and filled with silliness and laughter. A little girl, wild and spirited, playing with reckless abandon…  bits of fairy dust sprinkled in her hair.

The page turns to a new chapter called adulthood with new grownup responsibilities, decisions and obligations. Sometimes this is the part in the story where that uninhibited little girl becomes a distant memory.  The feistiness fades along with the little girl’s fantasy adventures and enchanted escapades. 

If you’re at that place in your fairytale where you’re ready to reclaim the magic and take back the starring role in your story, what say we grab our tiara and do it!  A brand-new chapter!  So, how to begin? How do you become the heroine of your story? I’m glad you asked!

Let’s start by designing an amulet pouch to collect inspiration.  Then we’ll compose a mixed media manuscript featuring you as the heroine of course.  We’ll build a fairytale playground where your imagination is free to roam and finally we’ll create a tapestry of a powerful portrait of the star of the fairytale. Yep, you!

There will be time to enjoy nature and daydream of princesses and palaces.  Delicious meals are included as well as Happy Hour(s) and snacks.  You’ll also be enchanted by other brave heroines sharing their own fairytale stories.

DATE and TIME:  Happy hour welcome and fairytale lessons begin Friday evening, October 27, 2017 and the adventure continues through Sunday afternoon, October 29, 2017.
