"For me, in all honesty, the people we met, the new experiences we faced together, the honesty, the new friendships, and the opportunity the retreat gave each and everyone os us to be completely vulnerable with a group of strangers, all like minded and genuine, was absolutely life changing. It reminded me how resilient I am as a woman, more importantly though that I want to live my entire life Mad To Live".
