Fall 2019 Women’s Weekend Retreat with Rev. Connie L. Habash
Nature, Presence, and Connection
October 18-20, 2019
Mount Madonna Center – Watsonville, CA
When we are deeply present, we feel connected and peaceful. Connection gives us a sense of belonging on this planet we call Earth. When there is connection, we feel love. And love is the great healing power of the Universe.
Explore meaningful connection and deep presence in a group of soul sisters dedicated to personal and spiritual growth. Immerse in yoga, meditation, deep nature connection practice, heartfelt sharing and group processes, and a sprinkling of sacred solitude. All intended to strengthen your connection to Nature, each other, the Divine, and your True Self.
The Fall Women’s Retreat includes:
- Daily yoga classes
- Moderate hiking and nature exploration
- Daily meditation and breath work
- Group exercises, discussion, and creative practices (including a drumming circle!)
- Free time to relax
- Accommodations for two nights
- All meals (vegetarian): Friday dinner; Saturday brunch, snack, and dinner; Sunday breakfast and lunch
- Full access to Mt. Madonna Center: over 355 acres of open meadows and redwood forests, including hiking trails, a small lake for swimming, a hot tub, and a massage and wellness center.

Connie’s leadership is exceptional
Connie’s leadership is exceptional. Her seasoned experience as a group leader, therapist, minister/lover of life and attention to detail allowed me (a natural organizer and caretaker) to truly let go into “retreat” and receive the gifts of relaxation, rejuvenation, connection, and Nature’s Beauty.
