Women’s Weekend Retreat Invites Joy In

On March 24 and 25, Julie McGrath of The Joy Source will host the 8th annual Women’s Getaway Weekend, at Ashworth- by-the-Sea, in Hampton, New Hampshire. This weekend by the beach is designed to offer women a chance to take a break from all the stressors in their life, be surrounded by other positive, forward-moving women, and be encouraged to let joy in.

Retreat leader McGrath will focus on how to fully immerse ourselves in joy and keep it with us not just for the weekend, but for everyday. She will encourage attendees to look at patterns in their life—whether it be communication patterns, choices, experiences— that can either welcome joy in or deflect it, or even repel it.

This workshop will energize and inspire attendees to be the joy seeker not only in their amazing experiences, but in their ordinary days. “With all that’s happening in the world today, I believe it’s important now, more than ever, to develop a concrete action plan for joy,” McGrath says.

Cost: $335/single, $250/double. Location: Ashworth-by-the-Sea, 295 Ocean Blvd., Hampton, NH. For more information, call 978-587-7324 or visit
