42: My First Retreat: An Audio Experience

Hello, my Empty Nest Friend!   I not only survived my very first retreat, but I had an amazing time, too! It exceeded my expectations, and I can’t wait to do it again.

It is more of a narrative and an audio journey. Whether you are a first-time listener or not, thanks for giving this episode a try. I open with the sounds of nature that I heard as I laid in my tent during my very first GPS Reset Weekend Retreat.   I’m thankful to my first retreat attendee who took a chance on my idea, signed up, and uncovered how brave she is.
