JOAN ANDERSON'S "WEEKEND BY THE SEA" RETREATS

After my year by the sea I came to recognize the benefits of solitude--how being alone for a time is a need, not just a luxury. I started these weekend retreats because so many women have written to me about their need for renewal. Fully aware that my year was made possible because my career as a writer is portable, and I had a cottage to escape to, I wanted to offer the same option (albeit just for a weekend) to as many women as I could. My objective is to offer you a getaway--a mini-vacation, a time for refreshment, as well as an understanding what it means to be an unfinished woman.

Each weekend retreat is unique in that I try to develop my workshops around the needs and goals of the attendees. The ages of past retreaters have ranged from thirty to seventy-eight, and they have been married, single, widowed, divorced. All that one needs to benefit from a weekend by the sea is the desire to look deeper inside to find the answers to whatever your life holds for you, and to invite reflection.
