These Summits and Retreats are designed to enhance, engage and empower youths toward a future of achievement, fulfillment and happiness. We explore topics surrounding self-awareness, goals and aspirations. On June 5th-7th, I will co-host the second annual Inward Bound: Holistic Retreat for Young Women in collaboration with The Cultivated Self and Inner Diplomat.

This exciting three day weekend retreat for under served young women ages 16-19 encourages positive transition into adulthood. The 2nd annual retreat will be spent at a beautiful lake-house (donated by property owner Brendan Walsh) in New Milford, Connecticut.
