All women, all ages, are invited to an overnight retreat at the Essex Conference & Retreat Center.  This natural oasis is nestled in the shade of the north shore and offers structured and unstructured time to the important work of tending to your soul.  Whatever nourishes you whether solitary walks, deep conversations, the company of nature, a dip in the hot tub, reading, or writing, this is the space to learn and grow and try something new.
