Spring is a time for Self-renewal

It's time for some good news for a change. Renee Peterson Trudeau, author of The Mother's Guide to Self-Renewal, is leading a Women's Spring Self-Renewal Retreat in Austin, Texas from May 2 to 4.

I have really enjoyed getting to know Renee. Her book speaks to me as a fellow Mojo Mom, and we had a good time talking on the Mojo Mom Podcast last summer.

So here's the description of Renee's retreat, in her own words. I wish I could go! It is not going to happen this spring, due to scheduling conflicts, but maybe another time.

My friend, Raelee, convenes a local group for this. In case you're not aware of it (though you probably are), *Our next Self-Renewal Party is Sunday, April 6, 2008 at the Carrboro Yoga Center. 7:00-9:00PM* What to bring? A picture of yourself when you felt most "alive!" and your journal. We'll provide the refreshments.

1:27 PM
