|Susan Hall, M.Ed., NCC, LPC and Nancy Golden,
M.Ed., LPC put together the first retreat in the fall
of 1999. They saw the need for women to retreat
from their busy lives and take time out for
themselves. While there were dozens of offerings
for workshops and seminars, there did not seem
to be an opportunity for women to come together
in a place of peace, serenity and support to relax,
unwind and release their stress.
The name “Sarah’s Circle” was inspired by a
reference in “A Woman’s Journey to God”, by
Joan Borysenko. It refers to a woman’s
personal/spiritual growth journey being circular,
rather than linear. Any growth within the circle is
spread outward through every member of the
circle. The circle helps women access their inner
wisdom, intuition, creativity and spiritual center.
The retreats are held at a beautiful rural setting.
There are some planned activities and a few
relaxation exercises, such as guided imagery,
aimed at helping women quiet down and relax.
The rest of the time women are free to walk the
grounds, read, nap, share, swim, meditate, get a
massage or engage in a creative or expressive art
We invite you to join us on a retreat soon.
