Welcome to the Healing Odyssey Spring Update! We have lots of news to report. We held our HO49 Retreat this April. This was our first retreat at the beautiful Pali Mountain Resort in Running Springs, CA. We found it to be a wonderful, mountainous location with fresh air and an energizing spirit. We also had wonderful participants! This was also our first retreat being offered with no fees, and the response was overwhelming. Because Healing Odyssey is quite well known around Southern California, our “no fee” announcement came with a major influx of registrations.
As we went up the mountain with 30 wonderful women, we felt a renewed vigor for our mission, and had an extraordinary experience for all. The ropes course and the zip line were perfect (with some adjustments) for our ladies, the food was hearty camp fare, the lodgings were nice if rustic, and the staff was incredible. We expect to have a long relationship with Pali. It’s nice to have a new camp “home”!
In other news, we added Barb Stamp to our Board of Directors, we have a fantastic new HO video produced by HO47 grad, Michelle Rue, and have a “Living the Odyssey” blog being written by HO48 grad Lesley Glen on our website and Facebook page. Links are here:
DATES TO REMEMBER: We have many activities lined up for the rest of the year, and we hope that you’ll find time to join us for one or all!
