A Jewish Spiritual Retreat for Jewish Women 55+, March 4-6, 2018

You’ve got more experience, more wisdom and more spunk. Now it’s time for some Jewish spirituality to feed your soul.

Reserve your spot at a gorgeous mountain retreat – the UCLA Lake Arrowhead Conference Center – with delicious healthy kosher cuisine, A-list educators, and classes and workshops that will feed your soul. Jewish study, friendship, deep connections and a lot of laughter are yours over the 3 day retreat.

And it’s not too late to sign up!

If you’ve earned your wisdom from all the plot twists in your personal story and the unpredictable cast of characters G-d wrote into every chapter of your life. If experience has been your teacher – and it’s been quite a ride.

Then you need to make sure your very best years lie ahead.

Time to give a little attention to the soul.

Join us for 2 nights, 3 days of deep conversation and rich Torah study, lots of laughter, yoga, singing, painting and nurturing healthy kosher meals. This is Judaism for lifelong learners – an experience that will expand your horizons and give you insights into your past, present and future.

On The Agenda

Finally, a place to talk about the things that are on your mind and in your heart with Jewish educators, experts and other women who know just where you’re coming from.

Here’s a bit of what you can expect:

  • How to Improve Your Spiritual Eyesight
  • Growing Closer: Learn to build relationships that last
  • Move Over Freud and Maslow: How to defeat anxiety, sadness, worry, anger and guilt by applying the wisdom of sages
  • The Future is Now: Make the next years your most meaningful and fulfilling ones
  • You Are What You Remember: Why is memory the key to redemption? How do you put that to work in your life today?
  • Dear 30 Year Old Self: How to put years of accumulated wisdom to good use

Add a meandering walk in the woods, a painting workshop and a relaxing evening around the fire and you’re starting to get the picture. With all the serious stuff, we’re going to have a lot of fun.

The objective of these two days? To make sure your most meaningful, fulfilling and happiest years are the ones coming up right now.

“What a wonderful, restorative, stimulating, friendly, delicious, and great-in-every-way experience with you all this week!”
Ya’akovah from New York

“It’s a journey that defines who I am and why I’m in this world. I think the thing that amazes me the most is that I’ve had the opportunity to learn so much so late in life and that no matter when I started this journey, it counts and matters. And was able to be transformative when I thought I was fully formed.”
