Women typically play many roles in life – mother, daughter, wife, partner, aunt, grandmother, employee/boss, friend – but we often lose sight of our most important role, which is, to be ourselves.
Who are you, and how do you feel about yourself? How are your relationships with others impacted by your relationship with yourself? What “baggage” do you carry that holds you back from being the best you that you can be? Are you ready to spend some quality time with the most important woman in your life – YOU – and to build a better relationship with that amazing woman?
A Healing Hearts Women’s Retreat will help you to nurture and grow that important relationship, whether you’ve already begun developing it, or whether you are just now ready to take the first step toward doing so.
Healing Hearts Women’s Retreats are non-religious in nature, and focus on personal growth, healing, and renewal – for mind, body, and spirit.
Retreat time is a blend of interactive processes, guided meditations, and silent time. Silent time provides an ideal opportunity for self-discovery, healing, clarity, reflection, meditation, journaling, and/or prayer.
Retreats are held in locations which are surrounded by nature’s beauty, and provide a wonderful, supportive atmosphere so that you can truly focus on yourself. The theme, or focus, of each Retreat will differ, providing you with ongoing opportunities to address different areas of your life each time you attend.
Rosemarie McGonigle has a background in Education, and has been involved with personal growth work in many capacities for over 20 years. While continuing on her own journey of self-discovery, growth, and healing, she has developed a deep respect and appreciation for the curiosity, willingness, and courage that it takes to look inward.
She facilitates in a manner that is engaging, loving, and humorous, while gently but firmly encouraging others to stretch, grow, and heal.
With the understanding that people need to feel safe if they are going to risk, she provides a compassionate and supportive environment in which to do so.
Her wish for you throughout your retreat experience is that you feel that “Your heart is safe.”
“Throughout my life, I have filled many roles – Educator, Corporate wife, mother, business owner, Interior Decorator – to name just a few. Each role has brought me varying measures of joy, fulfillment, challenge, and growth. My continuing journey through this beautiful life has brought me many opportunities to take a good look at myself, and to love what I see, even though it’s not perfect. The challenge is not always in the looking, but in the loving --- I have a voice inside that wants me to be perfect. I have learned to listen to that voice less and less, and maybe, someday, it will be silent. My serenity comes from my acceptance of the fact that my journey through life is about progress, not perfection. Healing Hearts Retreats has grown out of a wish to share what I have learned on my journey in a way that guides others to find grace, dignity, healing, strength, and serenity.”
