A women's retreat is a special time for your group to create memories, socialize and maybe even perform some introspection. We have found that planners can garner significant interest in the event if an appropriate theme is selected.
A theme will encourage potential participants to sign up, share the retreat's details with other prospective participants and give them something to look forward to. There really is a stark difference between a general women's retreat, and one that is touted with a specific theme.
Without further adieu, let's take a look at some favorite themes for a women's retreat.
A Woman's Time to Reflect
The contemporary woman is a person of “many hats”. The average woman works, cares for her children, handles the brunt of the household chores and rarely has a moment to herself.
Theme your women's retreat as “A Woman's Time to Reflect” and there will undoubtedly be an up-swell of interest in the experience. Just about everyone can relate to this theme. We're all looking to get away from the work grind and domestic responsibilities for a quiet time of personal reflection.
Furthermore, self-reflection also presents the opportunity to consider how God has shaped one's life and ponder what he has in store for the future.
The Seasons of Life
A women's retreat themed on The Seasons of Life provides your group with the opportunity to explore the cycles of the human experience in a group setting. Life is full of ups and downs, twists and turns, surprises and disappointments.
Use your women's retreat to key in on how to stay steady during roller coaster experiences. Have participants share their anecdotes as a means of encouraging peers to stay the course and never give up hope.
Each individual's life is a work in progress. This is the mantra of the Under Construction theme for your women's retreat at America's Keswick. Focus on the effort and devotion of God as well as oneself during your retreat and the event's participants will emerge feeling enriched, spirited and thankful.
When Life Gives You Lemons
Center your retreat discussions and activities on this theme and participants will obtain a newfound sense of hope as well as a spirit of resiliency. We all get down from time to time. What matters is that we get back up and do so in a manner that steers us away from even deeper lows in the future.
Key in on the importance of maintaining a level head no matter what type of curveballs are thrown one's way.
The Path of Righteousness
Every woman has the potential to bring light to a world that is becoming increasingly dark. Theme your women's retreat on righteousness and your group will be motivated to change their surroundings for the better.
Woman of Strength
In today's society, it is awfully easy for women to suffer from low self-confidence, body image issues and an inferiority complex. Use your retreat as a means of joining together to solve problems and build deep bonds with one another. Helping fellow women in a concerted team effort really does revolutionize one's self-perception as well as her willingness to engage with others for a common goal.
Women as Pioneers
Women are trailblazers, creators and innovators yet the mainstream media would have you think otherwise. Your women's retreat is the perfect opportunity to stress the importance of the pioneering spirit.
This experience will help group members in their quest for self-improvement and/or recovery. For some, it might even serve as motivation to expand boundaries, reaffirm devotion to God or embark on a new life path.
