Exponent II Retreat: September 18-20

Exponent ll Retreat
September 18 – 20, 2009

Exponent II sponsors an annual retreat for women. Every gathering is designed to be a warm environment for open, honest sharing of life experiences, issues, beliefs, and ideas. The retreat features many workshops, a keynote speaker, discussions on a range of topics, a talent show, spiritual autobiographies, home-cooked from locally grown organic produce.

Exponent II welcomes women who are familiar with our paper to this retreat and is committed to holding an all-women’s retreat.  Please leave your husbands, children (except for non-mobile nursing infants – this is not physically a small-child friendly environment), and pets at home.   We also ask that you come for the entire weekend for a feeling of connectedness and belonging to the group.

If you have any questions regarding the retreat, please call or email Barbara Taylor, saige3tb@yahoo.com, (617) 678-7604.  Updates on the retreat will also be posted on the Exponent II website at www.exponentii.org.

We look forward to a weekend of enjoying nature, making new friends, becoming reacquainted with old friends, and engaging in stimulating and uplifting dialogue. Keynote speaker will be Dr. Marion Bishop.

    Oh, I love the idea of a gathering in Cape Cod! Can you offer tips to those of us out-of-towners about the closest airport(s) and whether there’s any public transportation that can get us there?

  2. Paula says:

    Can you tell us a little more about the speaker>

  3. Kirsten says:

    Yea! I love Marion!

  4. Caroline says:

    When I have more info about the retreat and the speaker, I will put it up on the blog or provide a link to the Exponent II website. Sorry, wish I could tell you more!

  6. Jeanne von Zastrow says:

  7. Jana says:

    I’m still waiting for airport and public transport info. Please let us know, the deadline is TOMORROW!

  8. Kiri Close says:

    i’m flying into NYC-La Guardia (because I really miss Manhattan & burroughs) then driving (or catching a ride?) over to the retreat. otw back, I will enjoy a whole day in New York City, reminiscing what I have been missing while reveling in the Great Plains.

    Hi Jana – I am fairly certain my mom does not read the blog, so unless you emailed her, she won’t get your comment. You can try her at saige3tb@yahoo.com. In the meantime, you can fly in Logan, then take the Plymouth & Brockton bus from either Logan or South Station to the Cape (looks like the closest stop on that line to Brewster is Barnstable, the town next door, then we can arrange a pick up). You can email the bus at info@p-b.com or call 508.746.0378.

    While I’m at it, as noted above, “If you have any questions regarding the retreat, please call or email Barbara Taylor, saige3tb@yahoo.com, (617) 678-7604.” My dear Mommy does not read the blog! I promise she’s not ignoring you 🙂
