Women for Women

“My time at Siena has been life changing. To walk among women who live a life of service and holiness is pure gift.”

- Recent Retreat Participant

Come join a circle of women’s wisdom and mutual support.  Give yourself the gift of slowing down.  Catch your breath, connect with other women, connect with the Divine. 

At each gathering, we will have time for prayer, meditation, and reflection through various stories, readings, creativity, music, and time spent outdoors. Join us as we take the journey to grow and share our lives with each other.  

This year we will read and discuss together Wayne Muller’s, Living a Life of Being, Doing and Having Enough.  Come join us even if you did not read the chapter.

Cost is $10 per session or $75 for the entire series.
