Energizing Spirits

The wellspring of the sacred flows into and through all of us. Regardless of faith tradition, recognizing when you have lost touch with that source is step one. Getting back in touch with it is step two in replenishing our energy and connection with the world around us. Join us for a morning of refilling your metaphorical cup together with other women from the community.

Event details:

Breakfast with Women will be held March 16, 2023 in Fond du Lac, WI, in downtown's historic Hotel Retlaw. Check-in and breakfast will be available at 7:30 a.m. with the event starting promptly at 8:15 a.m. Our keynote address and formal discussion will last until 9:30, after which, attendees are welcome to stay for continued reflecting and connecting with others in the room until 10:00 a.m.
