I came to the retreat expecting support, new ideas and meeting new friends. All expectations fulfilled! You are such an inspiration, small in stature but a giant in leadership skills. Your sincerity enlightens the weekend.
Thank you for giving us this time to remove our masks and bask in the safety of each other’s hearts.
This retreat has been phenomenal. I feel transformed. When I arrived on Friday straight from work I was frazzled, bogged down with concerns about deadline-driven projects, familial obligations and nursing a cold. I left my 10month old for the first time and my 5 year old had been vomiting. In short, I was a ball of stress filled with separation anxiety.
After spending two nights and a day and a half with you and the ladies, I am refreshed, relaxed, rejuvenated-REVIVED. The exercises you taught coupled with the life experiences and energy of these fabulous women were just the medicine I needed. I can go home now to my ultra-busy house filled with young children and a needy husband ready to be a wife and mother without losing myself. Thank you!
I thoroughly enjoyed this retreat an dam grateful to you for providing the opportunity to meet such wonderful, strong, inspirational women. I came to the retreat with the expectation that I would have time to reflect and uncover some “big idea” but what happened is that I discovered that the big idea was already there. I just needed to verbalize it and make it my own.
This weekend has been beyond my expectations. You and the group have allowed me to see and verbalize what I need to work on. It has been such a loving environment that I feel the strength to start my goal to make my home a better place. Also because of Jackie and her robe I realize that I need to move up a level on my spirituality and include god in my plans.
Thank you, Thank you! Thank you! I came with the need for deep soul searching and I am leaving feeling fulfilled. You are my elevator in life and my role model.
I came to the retreat looking for a blessing and empowerment. My expectations were more than met. I have learned that I am wonderful and there is wonder and beauty and support around me. I only have to tap into it. Thanks you for helping me to grow.
I came to the retreat looking for the experience of making new friends, but at the same time I had many fears about what would happen. What happened at the retreat was a huge surprise for me both in terms of the people who attended and myself. Everyone was open and caring and loving and this enabled me to be more honest and vulnerable than I have ever been in a very long time. I also say things about myself at a deeper level than ever before- and in far greater clarity. Thanks you for this very momentous and life-changing experience.
I have learned so much, I have broadened my horizons, gained wonderful friends, and learned to love myself a little more, gained a deeper sense of who I am through the eyes of others. Thank you for the sense of love, unity and womanhood.
This was a wonderful weekend for me — spiritual and enlightening. It was so good to meet new and nice people. Very uplifting!

Thanks for taking the time to share your gifts and for inviting humble, intelligent, compassionate seeking women to be a part of this great experience. My life is forever enriched because of your efforts.

Opportunities like your retreat help me to know we are just women on this earth needing to learn how to find and empower ourselves.
Before I worked with Cynthia I felt frustrated and confused and unsure of myself and the direction I should pursue. The results of working with Cynthia have been phenomenal I now have clarity, focus and have taken action steps to put myself first. I no longer feel like a “servant” since I am taking back control of my life.
I was stuck on first base and did not know how to move. After working with Cynthia I have finally moved off 1st base and because of the strategic action plans we designed I know that I will hit that that home run to create the life I envision.
