Every Authentic Women Circle is as different as the women who attend. Here we’ll share photos and thoughts as our Circle grows. Hope this will encourage you to come and experience being alive with us!

Authentic Weekend 2016
Touching Magic was the theme of our 2016 Authentic Weekend by the Sea. Oh what a magical time we had!
Laughter, imagination and a little “Hocus Pocus.”
What would magic be without wands and spells?
Another magical time with 18 women who know how to listen, share and laugh. We are so lucky to come together and step off the moving sidewalks of our “normal” lives.

Our 2015 Weekend was fabulous as always with 16 kindred spirits sharing, laughing, crying, meditating and learning from Courageous Woman author Laurel Holland.
