Mark Your Calendar for Next Year!
Transitions and New Beginnings Retreat:   April 4-6, 2025

Barb Bickford and I guided a group of incredible women on our 2nd Annual Transitions and New Beginnings Retreat at St. Anthony's Spirituality Center in early April.

Here are a few comments from participants:

  • This retreat was wonderful! My second time coming and I would come a third time to bring my daughter.

  • Good balance of group and alone time. Very Nicely done!

  • The weekend was planned perfectly to provide a great variety of activities.

  • Barb and Sandy are skilled at keeping a group on track - gently.

  • Their experience was very valuable and demeanor very approachable.

  • This retreat helped me clarify a very difficult transition. 

  • What was most helpful was.. the time and space to reflect in a beautiful, simple setting.

Retreat Planning

Why Retreat?  Retreats are an opportunity to:

  • Spark creativity and innovation

  • Build trust and mutual understanding

  • Foster healthy communication

  • Allow time for personal growth and reflection

  • Create space for rest and rejuvenation

  • Challenge yourself and your group in new ways

  • Have fun!

Retreats can have various purposes and must be designed with care to accomplish the results you desire.  

Examples for Retreat Themes:

  • Resilience and Thriving

  • Mindful Transitions

  • Outdoor Mindfulness Practices

  • Exploring Meditative Practices

  • Centered Connections

  • Cultivating the Healer Within (combines Qigong and Mindfulness Practices)

  • Create Your Own Theme!

If you are looking for guidance with how to create the environment and program for a memorable and effective retreat for your team, organization or faith community,

I would welcome the opportunity to co-create this event

with you!

Sandy Salvo was the perfect Qigong facilitator for our retreat. We had a diverse group with different levels of experience with moving meditation and she was able to make it easy and fun for all. Sandy has such a relaxed yet energized spirit and a contagious passion for sharing Qigong. When I met with her to discuss my hopes for our retreat, she listened and heard my vision. What she did with my group brought my vision to life and was more than I could have hoped for! We can't wait to invite her back next year.
