About the Event
Within every woman there is a Divine Beauty that can transform our lives and the world around us.
Join our 8th annual women’s retreat where we explore the divine beauty in all women and how empowerment, transformation and meaningful changes come from within.
Held at the Science of Spirituality International Meditation Center in Lisle, Illinois, we will hear esteemed speakers share their experiences of self-discovery. Enjoy a free vegetarian lunch and spend time together with like-minded women.
Regardless of where you are in your life’s journey, learn how to face daily challenges with courage and strength by finding your center of peace and harmony. Together we will be inspired to navigate life by creating a space for unconditional love, wisdom, fearlessness, and joy.
