Coming Into Our Fullness
Fall 2023 Women’s Weekend Retreat
with Rev. Connie L. Habash
October 27 – 29, 2023
What does it mean to be fulfilled? How, as women, can we express ourselves completely, authentically, and joyfully in our lives? This year’s Fall Women’s Retreat takes us into our Fullness.
Fullness is accepting, appreciating, and enjoying this moment. It is our complete expression of who we are. Fullness means we feel satisfied from within rather than constantly seeking it outside of ourselves. When we are deeply full-filled, we feel vitality, authenticity, ease, and the Divine expressing through us and as us.
Join us for a special Full Moon weekend at Mount Madonna Center; replenish and rediscover your fullness in body, mind, heart, and spirit. Nature, yoga, quiet time, connection in a circle of women, and Full Moon celebration will open you to greater full-fillment as your True Self.
Your retreat includes:
- Daily yoga & meditation classes, and presence practice
- Moderate hiking and deep nature connection
- Group exercises, discussion, movement, and creative practices
- Free time to relax
- Accommodations for two nights
- All meals (vegetarian)

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.
