You're Invited to a Women's Wellness Retreat!
The "Luxury" Swazi trip December 26 - January 4th has morphed into a Women's Wellness Retreat and we cannot be more excited about it! We have 3 of the 6 teammates already signed up. Would you like to fill one of the 3 remaining spots?
"But I'd feel too guilty not getting my hands dirty or doing heavy lifting": While some like to get their hands dirty, it’s really unnecessary for the purpose of our trips. The only thing we can’t hire locals for (which provides jobs) is us forming relationships with the kids, learning about them & their challenges, and gaining their trust so we can work together to solve them. Outside of the time we will be working on ourselves, we will spend all of the remaining time getting to know the kids, delivering emergency food aid, and helping the older girls start small businesses.
"But I've never done Yoga or breath work or meditation": This trip is for all levels and people on all stages of their self-reflection/self-improvement journey! We will have a guide and lots of ways for you make progress after finding yourself right where you're currently at!
"But I can't make these dates work in my schedule": We are happy to set up a trip specifically for you and your friends/family some other time! Or stay tuned for more group dates next summer.
The teammates will be required to make a $500 nonrefundable deposit to secure their place on the team. An additional $2,000 will be due over time (you can fundraise!). While this amount does not include airfare, we will be happy to help you search for the best flights available.
If you have any other questions, feel free to reply to this email
