Entrepreneurial Women: Cultivate Resilience, Rest & Inspiration When the Going Gets Tough
May 31–June 2, 2024
A Yoga, Meditation & Internal Family Systems Retreat
Setbacks, disappointments, and heartbreak are an inevitable part of every woman’s – and entrepreneur’s – life journey, often occurring multiple times. These experiences encompass the loss of a loved one, the conclusion of a relationship, the aftermath of a natural disaster, financial setbacks, or the upheaval caused by the loss of a career or identity.
When the going gets tough, how do we keep showing up – not only personally, but also professionally?
Amidst the crumbling of one’s world and the disorientation that follows, many women lack the support and perspective needed to navigate such experiences. If a woman becomes stuck at any point along the heartbreak journey, there’s a risk of being defined by the tragedy rather than transforming it as a catalyst for more joyful, authentic, and purposeful life and work.
Enter Sara Avant Stover, bestselling author, Certified Internal Family Systems Practitioner, and mentor of women’s spirituality and entrepreneurship, inviting you to cultivate more wholeness and sustainable success after setbacks of all sizes.
In the nurturing environment of this women’s retreat, you’ll gain insights into:
- Women’s meditation for adeptly navigating challenging emotions and life phases
- Women’s yin yoga and embodiment sequences to calm your nervous system
- Psychological Inquiry employing the Internal Family Systems (IFS) model to befriend challenging aspects of yourself
- Women’s circle practices fostering compassionate community support throughout your entrepreneurial journey
By tending to all facets of yourself as a feminine being and a business owner—physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual—you’ll depart with practical tools and inspiration not only to endure tough times but also to redefine them as a life-affirming rite of passage.
Sara Avant Stover, Handbook for the Heartbroken: A Woman’s Path from Devastation to Rebirth will be released on May 7, 2024 with Sounds True. Visit Sara Avant Stover’s website here for more information.
Note: Women of all spiritual orientations and yoga and meditation levels are welcome. Bring a journal and a sacred item to place on a group altar.
