We are thrilled to report that our initial foray into using an online format for our single day retreat in September went well. One of the great benefits of going online is that our sister veterans outside of the Sacramento area can join us! Our October 17th 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. Mostly, we hope that you and yours stay safe and well.
