2nd Annual Martha’s Vineyard Women’s Wellbeing Weekend


“Celebrating & Inspiring You in Changing Times”

This women-led retreat will be held at the historic and elegant Harbor View Hotel on Martha’s Vineyard in Nantucket Sound, off the coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

A restorative and energizing weekend retreat on the beautiful Island of Martha’s Vineyard for diverse working women who want to align who they are with their life’s work, for more purpose and impact.

  • Research in the area of positive psychology shows that engaging in our life’s work is more sustainable when we derive meaning from it and it turns out this is good for our wellbeing too.
  • Physiologically, we feel good when we work on purpose…and we have a greater sense of ease and flow in our life… and our life’s work becomes sustainable

“When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It’s to enjoy each step along the way”. – Wayne Dyer

So, this weekend we invite diverse working women in the arts, humanities, sciences, healthcare, finance and technology (all fields!) to collaborate, co-mingle, co-create and celebrate our purpose.
