There’s an adult version of weekend summer camp coming to the Poconos and I am all about it.
You may not have heard of Canadensis, PA, but this secluded and peaceful town here in the mountains of Northeast Pennsylvania, will be home to a transformative women’s retreat next month.
Rise Gathering is a two day women’s retreat designed to promote personal growth, enhance overall wellbeing and inspire collective connection. It is a weekend to connect with other passionate women and pamper yourself with empowering, uplifting experiences. It’s for every woman–wherever you are on your journey to ultimate health and wellbeing–whether you need a kickstart or an infusion of energy and ideas.
I was so happy to find out that skin care expert, Rachael Pontillo, will be facilitating two workshops at this transformative summer camp experience.
The first is Rachael’s 90-minute Herbal Skincare Preparations class, where she’ll talk about the benefits of using herbs in skincare products and demonstrate some simple ways you can do so at home.
The second is called What’s Your Beauty Archetype, and is based on her new Beauty Archetype Quiz –which will help you understand your own personality and needs better in terms of achieving inner and outer beauty in a way that’s meaningful to you and can help you add more self care, confidence, and joy into your life.
This second workshop will begin with the quiz itself, and then everyone will be grouped together based on their Beauty Archetype. Each group will go through some exercises together and will leave the 60 minute workshop with more self-awareness and a personalized Beauty Archetype Prescription to get started with when they get home.
Other workshops and sessions going on vary from yoga to cooking, arts and crafts to hiking and exploring this great area to vision and goal setting. It sounds like it is going to be amazing!
The event is from May 12-14 at Camp Canadensis–but it’s over early on the 14th so everyone will still have time to spend Mother’s Day however they’d like.
