Founded in 2008, Women's Weekend is a perfect time to pause for reflection and connect with other women. We can chat, drink coffee, hang out, rock on the porch, play board games, knit, and do whatever else our hearts desire. Take advantage of all that our facility has a lot to offer, including yoga, tennis, swimming, campfires, hiking, star gazing, and more. This year's program will also include chocolate truffle making (and tasting!) and a block printing workshop. Feel free to bring a craft project, a good book, a favorite board game, or just yourself!

One of the things that makes Women's Weekend a uniquely rich experience is that we attract participation from a wide variety of women of different generations, backgrounds, spiritualities, and abilities. We'll be facilitating optional discussions that provide opportunities to share our experiences, swap advice, and be ourselves in a non-judgmental environment.

We have lots of flexibility, feel free to offer suggestions or bring activities with you! All activities are completely optional -- no pressure if you prefer to just relax!

So come join us! It's a lovely way to celebrate springtime and a particularly relaxed way to enjoy Common Ground Center.

Testimonials

“I just loved to get away from the daily grind for a while and be myself in a safe, nurturing, peaceful, beautiful space.”

Kerrie ~ Massachusetts

“This is probably the first time in 10 years that I’ve spent two days taking time completely for myself! I really enjoyed spending relaxed time with such a fun and interesting group of women." 

Susan ~ Vermont

"Thank you for putting together such a wonderful weekend. Everything was so well-planned. The weekend was seamless. The food was great, especially the various forms of chocolate. We had such a nice group- friendly, warm, inviting and no drama. I felt like I had known these women for a long time. I left camp feeling restored, grateful and blessed for the wonderful memories and the new friendships.
