A Women’s Winter Retreat

IMG_6664 (1).jpg

Aquarius is a unique and caring individual who marches to the beat of her own drum.  She is a beacon of change, embracing her own ideas and influencing others to embrace them with her. She looks to the future and how she can shape it into a better one. She is an “ideas” person with a stimulating personality who draws others to her to garner support for her vision of the greater good.  She strives to be her best self and inspires others to do the same. She washes away the troubles of the past to make room for a fresh, new start.

Aquarius does not follow the beaten track

With the sun in Aquarius, join us in the spirit of the Water Bearer for a weekend of cleansing the mind, body, and soul by “going with the flow” and creating your own unbeaten track. With a variety of activities to stimulate the senses, you can choose what feels right to you.

This unforgettable weekend will be held at Pierce’s Inn in Etna, New Hampshire, the perfect venue for relaxing and having fun. Your hosts Bruce Lingelbach and Cindy Pierce are the most gracious you could ask for, and rumor has it Cindy will be providing some comic relief for guests…do NOT underestimate this perk of your stay at Pierce’s Inn. It will be a real treat!

Bring your weather-appropriate gear! XC skis, snow shoes, skates, sleds, gravel bikes, fat tire bikes, and a flexible mindset. Winters in New England are unpredictable, but we can assure you that there is ALWAYS fun to be had outside, and there are many options from Pierce’s Inn.
