Adventure-Based Women's Retreat!

Legacy Outdoor Adventures and Juniper Canyon are offering a Four-Day Adventure-Based Women's Retreat! 

Derek and Kim have designed this trip with the understanding that acquiring wisdom from life’s experience and trials is most effective when we create intentional spaces for reflection. This trip is designed to create that space and reveal, synthesize and express the lessons gifted to us by our individual life experiences.

Combining the power of wilderness with relationships, the women on this trip will find a supportive environment for healing, growth and empowerment.

Women on this trip will also find that the reflective experience is a powerful opportunity to set intentions for future life experiences and goals, confirming the words of American philosopher, psychologist John Dewey: "We do not learn from experience ... we learn from reflecting on experience.”

Join us and renew and revitalize your heart and soul!

"Wilderness experiences are life-changing. There is no other environment that allows so much personal reflection, healing, challenge, and community support. Although we always create a safe space, self-discovery cannot happen if we don't challenge our comfortability, so what we do is create a brave space where you can do hard things and find the strength within to become who you really are. Immersing yourself in the beauty and simplicity of a world without electronics and sharing that time with others who value the power of the wilderness will change the way you see yourself and the world." -Maddy

*This is a wilderness based adventure.  No electricity, cell service or indoor plumbing.  Be prepared for beautiful moderate hikes.
