OLD LA SAL, Utah — Retreating into nature for deep connection with the self and others is a cornerstone of Women’s Empowerment Workshop, based in Eagle. The Desert Adventure Retreat, offered April 28 to May 1, is no exception. This getaway, offered in response to requests from women for a warm spring retreat, includes hiking to sacred feminine rock art, exploring Utah’s canyon country, an opportunity to discover the healing power of horses, sharing circles, relaxation and nature-based personal coaching.

Based at the Mount Peale Animal Sanctuary & Healing Center, a half hour southeast of Moab, Utah, women will have the chance to feel nature’s shift to spring and examine transitions in their own life. Music, play and movement are always part of Women’s Empowerment Workshop retreats, and this spring getaway is no exception.

Susie Kincade, Women’s Empowerment Workshop founder and trip facilitator, is a nature-based personal coach who guides women and girls through deep connection in nature.

“This is an exciting retreat and an exceptional value,” Kincade said. “The atmosphere and healing energy of the lodge at the Mount Peale Animal Sanctuary is a perfect place to relax, rejuvenate and reconnect to one’s self and nature. And spring is perfect timing for exploring new possibilities in one’s life.”

At the sanctuary, workshop participants will have the opportunity to connect with the horses and their power to heal, under the guidance of equine therapist Chris Weeks.
