Women’s Getaway Weekend 2017

The 7th Annual Women’s Getaway Weekend 2017

April 1-2, 2017

Ashworth by the Sea, Hampton Beach, NH

Relax, connect, laugh, and find the keys to claiming your power, standing in your choices and living your authentic self!

Hosted by Julie McGrath of The Joy Source

During this weekend, you can attend the workshops designed to inform, inspire and enhance your life. Or go for a walk on the beach, sleep in late, take in the spectacular scenery, tap into your creativity with the Saturday night painting parties, dance the night away, catch up with friends and relax. This is YOUR weekend to do whatever energizes your spirit, relaxes your body and refuels your soul!

Get ready to unlock your true potential!



Workshops and Speakers Include:*

colleen-web-headshotOne of our sponsors is intuitive healer, Colleen Suchecki. At Believe Grow Shine, Colleen uses her intuition and techniques to help support you in realigning your life to what you really want, and who you really are. 

At this year’s Women’s Getaway Weekend, Colleen is speaking on two topics:

  • Let Your Soul Be The Guide to Unlocking Your True Self

Have been experiencing sadness, anxiety, fear, worry, and doubt and NOT creating a life that you LOVE?

Would you like to tap into a part of yourself that is ready for more joy, love, health, connection, happiness, success, and expansion?

You will be guided through exercises so that you become aware of what part of you is in the driver seat in your life…driving your choices, your emotions, and your outcomes.

You will then be guided to connect with a part of you that can take you to places you have never been.  From this place, you will create your intentions and goals for the rest of the year.

  • The Cause Of Your Health Condition, Beyond The Physical

What if the root cause of your health issue had nothing to do with what you ate or how much you exercised?

Your health challenge is a message from your soul trying to get your attention because you have gotten away from your true self.  It’s just a matter of decoding the message to see what changes need to happen in your life, so that you can let your true self SHINE.

If you are experiencing anxiety, depression, stress, chronic headaches, migraines, neck or back pain, disc issues, autoimmune issues, cancer, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, restless leg syndrome (just to name a few), and are frustrated with the lack of results from traditional medicine, you may be surprised to learn what may be really causing these issues.  We will talk about what you can do to start healing and resolving them.

Getting to the root cause of your health challenge and making new choices that are in alignment with your true self is your KEY to the health, happiness, and success you deserve.


diane-fraserOur other sponsor is Diane Fraser, author of Growing Up Superheroes, a soul worker + cosmic coach. Diane has been working with Tarot Cards for over 20 years and will be sharing how to tap into your intuition in her workshop:

  • Finding Your Keys to Personal Magic
Each one of us has innate access to all the wisdom and guidance we need to live a meaningful and enriching life. In this experiential workshop, Diane Fraser will help us to connect with our own inner guidance system through the use of symbols, archetypes, and synchronicity.


Ginger Burr strongly believes that getting dressed shouldn’t stress you out. In fact, 28 years ago, she created her business, Total Image Consultants, to empower women to feel great about themselves and realize their inner potential.gingerburr

  • How to Create a Wardrobe that’s Comfy, Beautiful and Budget-friendly (and Does Not Involve Yoga Pants)

Do you find yourself feeling self-conscious about how you look or do you constantly compare yourself to others and never quite feel like you measure up? Perhaps you say no to events you’d like to attend because you don’t know what to wear. While how you look shouldn’t matter, the truth is, it does…especially to yourself. When you feel good about how you look you exude confidence and it feels natural to express your passion and joy in life. Don’t let your wardrobe hold you back from saying YES to the beauty and opportunity life brings you. Ginger will share tried and true fashion secrets and valuable wardrobe building tools that will forever change how you get dressed every day.
