Our outstanding December virtual retreat reassured us that using an online format for our single day retreat meets our goals for community, writing, and sharing! One of the great benefits of going online is that our sister veterans outside of the Sacramento area can join us! The January 23rd single day retreat is open for new applications as well as email requests from our previous attendees. We are capping the number of attendees so please apply early.
There is much to write about and we need community more than ever. Below is our schedule so that you can consider whether this format will work for you. If you have never participated in a VWV retreat, please consider applying. Of course, if you have questions or concerns, drop us an email so we can talk. Mostly, we hope that you and yours stay safe and well.
