I cannot express, in full, how monumental this experience has been for me. Rise Gatherings has officially changed me in a way that I don't think is reversible. 

Catherine

It is amazing what this gathering has become for me - the anticipation, the actual event and the feelings that are carried forward afterward... there are not adequate words to describe it all!

Terry

RISE was an inspiring, empowering, emotional, entertaining experience that I will carry with me forever.

Nancy

It’s amazing (and unfortunately irregular) to be in such a safe and inclusive space that spans generations. The things I learned this weekend I will have with me forever.

Rebecca

Excellent opportunity for women of all ages to bond, relax and come together!

Brittany

This experience was exactly what I hoped for, and exactly what I needed. I'm so appreciative of all the women I met. The workshops were phenomenal! I learned a lot about myself and there is a lot I hope to take with my into my everyday life.

Emily

AMAZING! Needed to be here and thankful for the opportunity. So many inspiring women and an experience I won’t soon forget.

Carrie

It was fantastic, motivational, rejuvenating, fun, life changing, necessary and meant to be! I am so glad I went!

Joy

I enjoyed coming alone this year -- I feel like I met many more women and the conversations were deep and meaningful and lovely.

Carrie

"The best thing I could do for myself all year" succinctly captures it. 

Aubrey

LOVED, LOVED, LOVED....I was so afraid of walking into a "yogi" retreat where I would have nothing in common with the women. It wasn't like that at all. Everyone was wonderful, kind, warm, accepting....I hope to forge relationships for years to come (:  

Robin

 I truly felt like a new person when I started my journey back home. This is me.

Susan

This was my first time and I came with my 18-year-old daughter and we both enjoyed it - especially loved experiencing the weekend with her; enjoyed meeting other wonderful women; enjoyed the experience overall!
