WOMEN LIVING FULLY-Investing in Ourselves

August 16, 2010

Can you imagine what it would be like to be nestled in beautiful, inspiring surroundings, your only goal to rest and indulge in self discovery.  Imagine meeting like-minded women who come prepared to explore the same questions that run through your mind constantly…”Now What?” – “Who Am I?” – “How do I make the most of the life that is ahead of me?” What is it to be a true friend…to have a true friend?” “What matters the most to me at this time in my life?” “How can I  make a difference in the world?” ‘What does success really mean to me?”

PEEC (Pocono Environmental Education Center, Dingman’s Ferry, PA) is holding their  first annual Women’s Retreat,Oct. 24 – 27 2010  They have invited  inspiring authors, experts in their field and speakers who will gather to explore all of those questions and more.  Truth be told, all women share the desire to be more of themselves; more secure, more adventurous, more content in mid-life. It is a time to re-evaluate, renew and recommit to living our lives to the fullest…in essence to live in a way that is reflective of who we authentically are and what we value.

You are invited to participate in an experience that will both inspire you and allow you to inspire others.


Amy Ferris, author of Marrying George Clooney; Confessions from a  Midlife Crisis.  Ms. Ferris is a successful writer/screen writer;  A Greater Goode and wrote the movies “Mr Wonderful” and “Funny Valentines”.
“Amy Ferris has successfully combined a rip-roaringly funny page-turner, with an unvarnished account of the personal history that formed her. This gut-wrenching look at intimate relationships will resonate with readers because of the universality of its raw emotion, clarity of vision, and self-revealing courage. Destined to become a classic of Feminist literature.”
– Marcia G. Yerman, Huffington Post, Writer/Artist/Activist
