The WOW Panel

Illuminating the Stories that Bind Us- I was excited going in to this workshop, but could not have imagined the depth of insight that would come about in just 2 hours.  Jen used her amazing skills as a therapist to draw the group together, bring awareness to the most relevant issue lurking in the psyche, and direct us to our own inner wisdom for guidance around practical next steps to take.  We were each given both a song, and the opportunity to create a symbol to help us hold on to the experience afterwards.  This was transformative soul work at it’s best.  I would highly recommend that anyone work with Jen if they are seeking clarity, direction, or just being able to hear their inner voice a little more clearly.

    Each workshop touched me or opened me in a different way. I was able to observe thoughts, sensations, heart opening moments and bring in light to some darker, hidden parts of my internal landscape.


      The WOW stage was magnificent! It was a wonderous weekend that sparked community, creativity and deep self-reflection. The weather was amazing, the venue was magical and the facilitators and events spectacular. I feel internally richer and more connected as a result of going.  Thank you!


        The Wow Stage is birthing a unique coming together of spirit, music and authentic creative expression. A place to soar with kindred spirits.


          I feel like I got a year’s worth of therapy in one weekend.”


            It was so freeing to have music and creative expression without judgement.


              The WOW STAGE Staff and community were loving, supportive and uplifting.


                My experience of The WOW Stage was very special and I just know it’s going to be even better and even more transformational as The WOW Retreat.


                Frequently Asked Questions

                Yes. We want participants to feel part of a safe and enclosed community. The weekend has a clear and structured itinerary. The safety and comfort needed for this healing, creative, and artistic work require us to be together the whole weekend. The retreat isn’t more than 50 hours in total.

                Not at all. This weekend is about freedom of expression, personal growth, and connection with others. Previous training is not required.

                Yes. There is a vast open parking field at Windhover.

                All meals during your stay, including snacks, will be provided. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be communal and an opportunity for us all to connect further. The food will be vegetarian with gluten-free options.

                Windhover has rustic cabins with stain-glassed windows and twin beds and sectioned rooms. Picture adult camping. I know – super fun! Bathrooms and showers are in a separate cabin, but everything is close. It’s a small campus. On the application, you can choose whether to bring your linens OR request linens from Windhover. When you arrive to the retreat, you can choose where you sleep. In other words, beds are chosen on a first come first served basis.
