S.H.E. Retreat with Cynda Pinto

September 30, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

S.H.E. meets once a month in Boston for a full day long retreat. We provide a safe space for women to share their stories, develop relationships with each other to increase their support networks and to have support throughout their healing journey. Incorporating holistic healing practices into the space for these women is a major component of the retreats, we believe holistic healing not only to be a great coping skills but also a catalyst for a way of life. At the first two retreats a whopping 90% of the women in attendance had never participated in Mediation and Yoga. I want to change that and encourage more women to seek alternative healthy practices that may be more beneficial to them then other things they’ve tried in the past.

One of my own goals for this amazing group of women is to provide an opportunity for them to get away from their everyday environment, one that often causes stress and acts as a constant reminder of the oppressive society in which they live. The reason for me creating these retreats is because as someone that does a lot of community outreach and someone that is a survivor of sexual assault and domestic violence, I have seen first-hand the need in the community for not only survivors but women in general to let go of any baggage holding them down.
