Hello and Welcome to Women’s Quest!

Welcome Women’s Quest Adventures for the Body, Mind, and Spirit!  You will bring your amazing uniqueness to the retreat (just by being yourself), and we are thrilled that you will be joining us on a journey of adventure, knowledge and play.  We will invite you to rekindle your inner kid!  Retreats are a powerful time to reconnect with your inner wisdom and gain perspective and fresh “oomph” for your life.  We commend you for taking time for yourself and coming to visit a place where true health means more than just having a strong body.  You will discover how to fine-tune the relationship between your body, mind and spirit to achieve fitness from the inside out.

We have fantastic activities planned for you this spring.  We are looking forward to an incredible time together.  “The cure for exhaustion is not necessarily rest, it is wholeheartedness” (Brother David Sendall-Rast).   Your Adventures during this retreat will drench your senses and enliven your heart.  We will share unique experiences and you will make new women-friends.

To make your retreat experience as enjoyable as possible from start to finish, we would like to walk you through all the information you will need to get ready for your adventure!

Get ready for an awesome week of fun and adventure!  Please feel free to call or email us if you have further questions.  See you in Iceland!  

With excitement and anticipation,
The Women’s Quest Staff
