So many things can knock you off balance. So many demands that pull at you for your attention. In as many different ways as there are women, you can become disconnected from your passion and purpose, and lose touch with the rhythm and flow of your life. You feel a little lost, a little empty or flat.
You need a “pause” - a personal time out.
Maybe you try to slow down and carve out some time for yourself so you can get “back on track," only to find that somehow the time slips through your fingers a little too often. You find that your self-care always ends up last on the list of ‘things to do’.
Besides, who has time for that kind of indulgence?
But if you don't allow yourself to "drop your bundle" occasionally to reflect, relax and just be, the repercussions can be ugly, ranging from crabbiness and irritability to foggy thinking and physical depletion.
Autumn’s Pause is an opportunity to slow down from the usual pace of your life. It’s a chance to engage in a process of discernment about what fulfills you and what does not, and take the time to conjure a vision of what you want your life to be.
This retreat is an invitation to enter safe and sacred space, where you can engage in a weekend of soul-tending and self-care. We’ll use SoulCollage® to discover and restore, so you can return to your life with renewed levels of peace, clarity, and connection to your essence. Just as importantly, you’ll return equipped with tools and resources to help you more easily maintain you the rhythm, flow and harmony of your life.
Held at Hope Springs Institute in southern Ohio and surrounded by the natural beauty of the Appalachian foothills, you’ll delight in a long weekend with a beautiful private room, delicious, locally-sourced meals, soul-stirring gathering spaces and palpably sacred land.
If you’re in need of a Pause, these words likely have created a quickening in your pulse, a sigh in your heart, or simply a deep “Yes” in your spirit. If that’s the case, I invite you to consider being a part of this intimate circle of 12 unique, creative women for a long weekend of relaxation, introspection and renewal.

Your Facilitator, Julie Henderson, MS, LMT
This will be my sixth year facilitating a women's SoulCollage® retreat at Hope Springs. I LOVE the retreat format for doing deep soul-tending, and this retreat is both a signature event for my business the highlight of my year.
My passion in life is seeing women of all ages bring their strongest, most radiant Self into sharp focus and then sharing that Self with the world. To this passion I bring my academic background in developmental psychology and women's studies, 20 years in the field of bodywork and integrative healing, apprenticeship in The Women’s Quest model of feminine cyclical development, my interest in co-creation and Conscious Evolution and my training as a SoulCollage® facilitator.
Grounded in this eclectic background, I guide midlife women through the uncharted territory of defining an identity outside of their traditional roles, in a way that honors mind, body, spirit, and artistic sensibilities. I offer a multi layered approach that helps women forge an everyday connection to their innate Feminine Wisdom.
