Women’s Empowerment Retreats Schedule First Event 
For June 1-3 



What do you get when four life consultants put their heads together to empower women? A powerful retreat specially designed by women for women. Sofia Pallesen, Farah Risoen and Lorri Bein from San Diego County, and Pam Goldschmidt from Orange County are teaming up and utilizing their vast experience to create this unique weekend. “Our goal is to create a retreat and a safe environment for women to explore who they have been in the past and how they can honor themselves as women who create their own futures,” says Goldschmidt.

 “Live Your True Self”, June 1-3 at the Oceanside Marina Inn, is a three-day exploration of what it means to be happy and fulfilled. “By exploring your definition of success, relationships, spirit and sense of mystery,” says Risoen, “you will begin to excavate your authentic self in order to create the life you know you deserve.” 

The retreat consists of powerfully guided indoor and outdoor experiential exercises utilizing journaling, questions, beliefs, sharing and creation of a collage that represents each person’s authentic self. “It’s a great opportunity to bond with a circle of people who understand the challenges facing women today,” says Pallesen. 

Peace by Piece Life Strategies is the company formed by Goldschmidt, Pallesen, Risoen and Bein to conduct the retreats. “Our outcome is to create a series of events which provide a forum and an outlet for women to find out more about themselves. We are really looking forward to making a difference in the lives of many, many women,” says Bein. 

“Live Your True Self” starts Friday, June 1st in the afternoon and ends Sunday evening. The $375 cost includes lodging, most meals and all retreat materials. For more information or to sign up, call toll-free (877) 804-1809. Due to limited space availability, participants are asked to sign up before May 11.
